Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon primarily deals Slash b.svg Slash damage.

Advantages:

  • High Slash b.svg Slash damage – effective against health and shields (although Puncture b.svg Puncture and Impact b.svg Impact is much better against the respective damage classes).
  • High accuracy.
  • Large magazine size.
  • Highest number of shots per burst out of all burst-fire rifles.
  • Burst-fire has low recoil.
  • Innate Madurai Pol.svg Polarity.
  • Can use the Hind-exclusive Mod TT 20px.pngFinal Tap mod.

Disadvantages:

  • Low Impact b.svg Impact and Puncture b.svg Puncture.
  • Semi-auto fire has the second lowest fire rate of all semi-auto rifles, after DEGrinlok.png Grinlok.
  • Linearly less efficient – sometimes a target may only die with six bullets, which requires an entire second burst to be fired. However, this can be circumvented by using the semi-auto single shot.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • New players who prefer burst fire but cannot afford this weapon's heavy building cost should stick with the Burston.png Burston until they have enough resources.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Hind is one of the Grineer weapons to be showcased in the Chemical Lab.
  • The Hind's magazine is a small helical magazine that is inserted under the barrel.
  • The Hind probably gets its name from the NATO reporting name for the famous Mil Mi-24 helicopter gunship/troop transport. Other probable sources of the weapon's name include:
  • In the Warframe community, the Hind is nicknamed as "the Baguette" because of its shape closely resembling a loaf.
