Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cronus (alternatively Cronos or Kronos) is the youngest of the twelve titans in Greek mythology and father of Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon.
  • Since Update 7.8, the Cronus Blueprint will only be a guaranteed reward the first time Tolstoj is completed and its drop chance exponentially decreases with each repetition. This was put in place to prevent credit farming.
  • The Cronus was the original melee weapon of the Stalker before update Update 7.11.
