  • Has a Naramon Pol polarity.
  • Can equip the Miter-exclusive Mod TT 20pxThundermiter mod.

Disadvantages:

  • Low Impact b Impact and Puncture b Puncture damage.

TipsEdit

  • Due to the slow projectile speed, it can be difficult to hit targets. Even is they are directly approaching you from a distance. If you instead aim at the ground ahead of them, the blade will ricochet off of the ground and almost invariably hit your target.

BugsEdit

  • When fired from a clone via HallOfMirrors130xDark Hall Of Mirrors, the projectile will be the user's color palette, however the destroyed sawblade will be the default palette upon contact with a second bounce.
  • When firing the projectiles at a Button on certain Orokin missions, the blades will hit the button and spin in place. At the end of their flight time, they will fall to the ground.

TriviaEdit

  • The Miter has a non-static model; its discs rotate inside the weapon during charging, although the effect is barely visible to the user due to the position of the gun.
  • The Miter was first seen in the game with the Grineer Eviscerator in the Sling-Stone Event.
  • miter saw is a type of power saw with a circular sawblade.
  • Written on the disc is the word Grineer CGrineer UGrineer TGrineer FGrineer AGrineer CGrineer E which translates to "Cutface" in Grineer.
  • The Miter can be carried by Grineer Targets in a Capture mission.
  • A blade that has been shot can be found on the ground shortly after its third impact. After a few seconds it will disappear.
  • When held using HallOfMirrors130xDark Hall Of Mirrors, the sawblade will not be hidden if the User looks through one of their clones.
  • Grineer Eviscerators seem to be able to fire the weapon faster than a player can without any fire rate Mods (uncharged).
  • The TennoMiter Panthera, a rifle which requires the Miter as a prerequisite to be built, similarly fires sawblades, with an additional ability to fire a levitating saw that deals continuous damage.
    • Slightly contrasting the Miter, however, the Panthera's sawblades are aligned vertically, compared to the Miter, whose sawblades are aligned horizontally.
    • It cannot charge its attacks unlike the Miter.
  • The Miter can be considered one of the toughest weapons to acquire in the game. Due to its high number of parts in addition to the Gremlin Twin Gremlins Blueprint being on the same drop table, it's highly likely to end up with multiple duplicates before getting the last missing part.
  • The Miter is reminiscent of the Ripper/Ripjack Weapon from Unreal Tournament (Which DE also worked on) as seen here, which features the same functionality except for the UT exclusive Alt-Fire of a detonating blade and reduced bounces from 6 to 3.
