The Braton's high rate of fire and accuracy make it a favorite among Tenno.

The Braton is a LotusWhite.png Tenno assault rifle with balanced damage, fire rate, and accuracy. It is a versatile rifle, performing effectively against all enemies without specialty.


  • This weapon deals primarily DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage by a small margin.


  • Low recoil.
  • Normal Attack
    • Above average magazine
    • Above average effective fire rate
    • Above average max ammo
    • Above average disposition


  • Normal Attack
    • Low crit chance
    • Very low damage
    • Very low status chance
    • Low crit multiplier



A fully built Braton can be purchased from the Market for Credits64.png 25,000.

It can be sold for Credits64.png 7,500.


  • When used extensively or playing solo, the ammunition of an unmodded Braton can burn down quite quickly. Consider switching to your pistol or utilizing melee combat when possible.
    • When fighting at long ranges, consider firing in short bursts or taking a calculated risk and charging forward. The ammo saved from avoiding sustained long range fighting far and away compensates for any sizable amount of close range damage.
  • Using Mod TT 20px.png Metal Auger and/or Mod TT 20px.png Shred makes the Braton useful for taking down large crowds without wasting too much ammo although the mods take up a sizable amount of mod capacity.
  • Using Mod TT 20px.png Rifle Ammo Mutation can help regain lost ammo when needed, due to the weapon's semi-quick ammo consumption.
  • The Braton's reload time can be reduced to a mere 1.5 seconds with Mod TT 20px.png Fast Hands, making it ideal for speed-based builds that are looking for a fast-firing rifle that can be reloaded quickly.
  • It can be useful to slot Mod TT 20px.png Wildfire in place of Mod TT 20px.png Hellfire, as the former will increase the Braton's magazine capacity to 54 while only suffering a loss of 30% elemental damage at the cost of 9 points compared to the latter's 11-point cost. This is also far more efficient than using Mod TT 20px.png Magazine Warp, as the former will only sacrifice 10% ammunition capacity for a far more beneficial 60% extra heat damage. Overall, it is most cost effective (9 points) than the alternatives to achieve similar benefits (20 points for both Hellfire and Magazine Warp).


  • Originally, the weapon shared the same model as the Latron.png Latron, with similar damage and fire rate. It was then changed to have the same appearance as the old Braton.png MK1-Braton with Corpus stylings.
    • The Braton, along with its MK1 Variant, was assumed to be a Corpus weapon due to Corpus manufacturing symbols printed on the weapon. Update 19.10 (2017-02-09) gave the Braton a new model that had Tenno design and Orokin writing instead, removing the Corpus connections and making it more lore friendly.
    • The old version of the Braton can still be seen when using legacy skins like the Forest Camo or the Shock Camo skins, which changes the model to the previous appearance.
  • During Hotfix 10.6.1 (2013-11-01), an unreleased Nvidia skin was leaked (refer to gallery image 4 below). This was automatically applied to all Bratons, and was subsequently removed in the next hotfix with the redtext reading "just a small change, you probably won't even notice" referring to the fact that not many people knew of the mistake. It is unknown whether the skin will be officially released, or whether it was just a concept skin model.
  • The Braton, as of February 2017, currently has the highest number of skins that can be used on a weapon, at a total of 8. It can use the following: IAH Games skin (Promotion, no longer available), Forest Camo, Shock Camo, Conclave, Day of the Dead skin (Limited time item, no longer available), PS4 Skin (Exclusive to PS4 pre-orders in North America), Kintsugi, and Nocturne. A Nvidia skin was also temporarily leaked but never actually officially used.
  • Despite being long retired and never available through the Marketplace, the IAH Games skin is depicted in the Weapons > Cosmetics tab in the Marketplace.
