Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Reload time is 0.75s + 0.5s per round, coming to 3.75 total seconds to reload a completely empty mag.
  • The MK-1 Strun is a slightly weaker version of the standard Strun, with less overall damage and slightly slower rate of fire.
  • The listed damage is actually the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 9.35 Impact b.svg Impact, 2.55 Puncture b.svg Puncture and 5.1 Slash b.svg Slash.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Strun appears to use a tubular magazine, presumably the cylindrical protrusion near the rear above the stock - the Warframe will push this section while reloading.
    • Assuming the Warframe is adding shells into this tube, or replacing it, it would imply that the shells used by Strun are extremely small, which is quite puzzling given the enormous size of the barrel diffuser.
  • The regular Grineer Trooper used to use this weapon prior to Update 11.0. They now wield a GrnDBSG.png Sobek.
  • The Strun is most likely a Tenno weapon, despite its augmentation the WraithStrun.png Strun Wraith, a Grineer-focused customization. The Strun bears a faint Tenno marking on it stock as proof.
    • Additionally, the Strun shares many similarities to the Boar.png Boar, which is a weapon that has received a Prime version, proving it as Orokin technology.
