      • Higher DmgSlashSmall64.pngSlash damage (21.6 vs. 21.5)
    • Higher fire rate (7.5 rounds/sec vs. 6.67 rounds/sec)
    • Larger magazine (30 rounds vs. 15 rounds)
    • Larger max ammo capacity (60 rounds vs. 45 rounds)
    • Slower reload speed (2.4 s vs. 1 s)
    • Less accurate (11 vs. 18)
    • Higher Mastery Rank required (3 vs. 0)

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Previously, Aklato used the same icon and in-game model as Akbolto.pngAkbolto. It was changed several patches later.
  • It can be noted that for some users Aklato appears to land shots near the top of the reticle.
  • As with other dual pistols, wielding the Aklato while holding a Corpus datamass will result in the Warframe wielding a single pistol, but with retained magazine size and reload time.
  • Players who purchased platinum through Rixty also received a free Aklato, along with a unique, Rixty-only skin with a free Orokin Catalyst installed.
  • The name is likely derived from "akimbo" and "Lato."
  • In the eight minute Dark Sector trailer, in which the game was much more like Warframe than the final product was, an Excalibur-wearing Hayden Tenno used  the Aklato pistols.
