Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Kronen counts towards the "Dagger Proficiency" achievements.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This was the first Tonfa-type weapon in Warframe.
  • At Credits64.png65,000 credits, the Kronen has the most expensive weapon blueprint in Warframe.
  • The Kronen is one of the winning weapons from the fan-created melee weapon contest (preceding the TennoSwordShield.png Silva & Aegis). Its design was submitted by the player Datareaper.
  • Kronen is German for "crowns" or "coins".
  • When the Kronen was first released, it was unable to do wall attacks due to a bug. This was fixed in Update 14.8.
  • Perhaps the name is a reference to the Hellboy film character, Colonel Kroenen, who prefers using bladed tonfas.
