Weapon Loadouts

Notes

  • Currently the AkZani holds the distinction of having the third largest reserve ammo capacity of all secondary weapons, having 400 rounds of ammo compared to the usual 210 for secondaries (only beaten by the Synoid Gammacor, with 450, and the Twin Grakata, with 1200). With a maxed rank Trick Mag mod, the AkZani can increase its capacity to hold 760 rounds of ammo.
  • The AkZani have very similar stats to the Dex Furis, though the former has lower overall damage and 2.5% less crit chance. However, the AkZani have the advantage of having nearly double the reserve ammo capacity, making it less likely to run out of ammo than the Dex Furis.
  • When this weapon first released in Update 14.0, it required 200 Morphics to build, which DE later said was a bug. Hotfix 14.0.1 reduced this to only 2 Morphics.

Trivia

  • This is the first Secondary weapon to feature a default extended ammunition size.
  • This is the third secondary weapon said to have been favored by a specific Warframe. First was Akbolto with Nyx and second was Twin Vipers with Banshee as limited time bundles.
  • The word "Zani" is derived from the zanni, a character type in the Commedia dell'arte known as an astute servant or trickster. The Harlequin (the source for Mirage's overall design) is one of the most well-known zanni.
