These diminutive rapid-fire Stiletto machine-pistols are just the right size to be akimbo style without sacrificing accuracy.

The Akstiletto are a pair of machine pistols designed by the LotusBlack.pngTenno, featuring a high rate of fire, a very fast reload time and good accuracy.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64.png2,500. It is also a requisite ingredient for AkimboSomaPistols.pngAksomati and the TnoGunbladeAuto.pngSarpa.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Mod TT 20px.pngTainted Clip is good for increasing the magazine capacity of Akstiletto because its short reload time is affected very little by the reload speed penalty.
  • With the short reload, this is an excellent backup for fist and sparring weapons, which aren't always reliable due to extremely short range.
  • With the weapon's stable accuracy, the weapon can be used while moving in hit-and-run tactics, shooting at a target while running away from them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A Stiletto is a kind of dagger with a slender blade with a well-pointed tip on its end, which could relate to the weapon's high accuracy.
  • The Akstiletto have a curve that vaguely resemble that of Stiletto-heels, shoes with a narrow high-heeled platform.
  • This is the first Tenno Lab weapon ever released during Update 12.0.
  • The lights on the magazines' rear and sides are ammunition level indicators, going dark from the top as the Stilettos fire. However the lights on both Stilettos go off at the same time, despite the guns firing consecutively rather than concurrently.
    • Using black energy in the Smoke Palette or very dark energy colors will make it impossible or difficult to note the lights on the Akstiletto.
    • Despite the Tenno throwing both guns to their sides during a reload, the Akstiletto will never drop the magazines and they will always be connected to the model.
  • This is the second dual-wield sidearm that currently does not have a single counterpart (being preceded by the Gremlin.pngTwin Gremlins).
  • Like the preceding Vipers, the Stilettos make a distinctive sound when their trigger is released.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Holding a datamass with this weapon and reloading will cause the datamass to spin as if it were the other gun.
