Chew through the enemy with this vicious automatic hand shotgun.

The Pyrana is a secondary automatic LotusBlack.pngTenno shotgun, available from the Tenno Lab. With its fast fire rate and high Slash b.svg Slash damage, the Pyrana can easily decimate groups of lightly armored targets. However, this is counterbalanced by its high recoil and damage falloff.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64.png5,000.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily Slash b.svg Slash damage.


  • High Slash b.svg Slash damage - effective against health and shields (although Puncture b.svg Puncture and Impact b.svg Impact is much better against the respective damage classes).
  • Fully automatic.
  • Efficient ammo economy.


  • Low Impact b.svg Impact and Puncture b.svg Puncture damage – less effective against shields and health.
  • Linear damage falloff from 100% to 27.27% from 15m to 30m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Low accuracy.
  • High recoil, especially on full auto.
  • Shots goes to the right and up. Horizontally it hits rightmost side of the reticle at 3m, worsening at longer distances.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The listed damage is actually a combination of all twelve pellets' damage values. The actual damage per pellet is 0.6 Impact b.svg Impact, 0.6 Puncture b.svg Puncture, and 4.8 Slash b.svg Slash.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon's name, design and description are all derived from the piranha, an omnivorous freshwater fish that inhabits South American rivers. The piranha is well known for hunting its prey in packs and viciously tearing it apart.
