Firing high-velocity blades, this weapon can also be used as a battle-saw, shredding anything unfortunate enough to get into range.

The Panthera is a Tenno blade launcher that launches circular sawblades. It also possesses an Alternate Fire that levitates a spinning saw blade in front of it, dealing continuous damage to enemies within range.

  • Primary fire has pinpoint accuracy.
  • Primary fire projectiles can bounce, enabling them to hit multiple targets.
  • Innate Naramon Pol polarity.

Disadvantages:

  • Low Impact b Impact and Puncture b Puncture damage.
  • Primary fire projectiles have travel time.
  • Alt-fire has an extremely limited range of 6 meters.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

NotesEdit

  • The Panthera's primary fire mode shoots fast-moving sawblades that will ricochet off walls and enemies up to three times.
  • The Panthera has a secondary fire mode initiated by holding down the alternate fire key (default MMB ). This levitates a spinning sawblade up to 6 meters in front of the weapon, dealing continuous damage to enemies that make contact with it, as well as staggering them. The secondary fire consumes ammo for every second it deals damage while active.
    • The sawblade floats out of the weapon towards its levitation point, taking around a second to reach its maximum range. The sawblade retracts back into the launcher once the trigger is released.
    • The primary fire mode cannot be used while this is active.
  • Although the Foundry will claim that the Panthera can be crafted if a PrimeHikou Hikou Prime is present in the inventory, it won't allow the Hikou Prime to be consumed to build the weapon.
  • Compared to the Miter Miter (based on the ranged attacks and on uncharged shots):
    • Higher total damage on uncharged attacks (84.4 vs 80.55)
      • Higher Impact b Impact damage (16.9 vs. 4.05).
      • Higher Puncture b Puncture damage (8.4 vs. 4.05).
      • LowerSlash b Slash damage (59.1 vs. 72.45).
    • Faster fire rate (3.0 vs 2.5)
    • Larger magazine size (40 vs 20)
      • Primary fire consumes 2 ammo per shot, compared to one ammo per shot for the Miter.
    • Larger ammo capacity (120 vs 20)

TipsEdit

  • Although the Panthera has lower total damage compared to uncharged Miter shots, it has higher Impact b Impact and Puncture b Puncture damage, making it more effective against shields and armor.

BugsEdit

  • Despite [DE]Megan stating in Hotfix 21.0.9 that Panthera's Alt-Fire now benefits from explosion radius mods, it is still unable to equip Mod TT 20pxFirestorm, which is the only mod that could possibly increase this radius.
  • Although fall-off distances are given in the primary fire specs, there is no damage fall-off.
  • The blades shot from the gun with any punchthrough Mod equipped will go through terrain, but not enemies.

TriviaEdit

  • Panthera is a genus within the Felidae family that includes the tiger, lion, jaguar and leopard. They are characterized by morphological structures in their throats that allow them to roar.
  • Despite the green decal depicted in the Panthera's portrait, the default decal color of the Panthera is blue.
  • This is the third weapon that requires two different pre-made weapons in order to craft (following the TnoGunblade Redeemer and the Tipedo Tipedo), and the first weapon that requires weapons from 2 different factions (the Tenno-made Hikou Hikou and the Grineer-made Miter Miter).
  • The Miter, one of the prerequisite weapons needed to construct the Panthera, is similar in that it also fires sawblades.
    • The Miter's sawblades are horizontally aligned, whilst the Panthera launches vertically aligned sawblades.
  • The blades fired by Panthera have a design within the disc similar to the DEGlaive Glaive.
