Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • The Kohmak fires an increasing number of pellets the longer it is fired, until it reaches its maximum pellet count of five pellets per shot. It will also consume 1.6667(5/3) ammo per shot at maximum spool.
  • With its base magazine size and fired from rest to full spool, the Kohmak can effectively fire 25 shots, with one round left in the magazine. The number of shots per magazine can be increased by firing the Kohmak slowly to prevent spool-up, allowing it to fire its maximum of 40 shots, but at the cost of effective damage
  • The listed damage is actually a combination of all pellets' damage values. The actual damage per pellet is 0.6 Impact b Impact0.6 Puncture b Puncture and 1.8 Slash b Slash. The damage per pellet during when its spooled up is 6 Impact b Impact, 6 Puncture b Puncture and 18 Slash b Slash.


  • The Kohmak's last ten shots sound slightly different to indicate low ammunition.


  • The Kohmak's energy color will be inherited from a Primary weapon, as opposed to whatever the chosen energy color is on the Kohmak.

  • The Kohmak, as seen in the U16 bundle.
