The claws of these tactical bombs dig into the target and explode on command.

The Talons are throwing bombs, functioning like throwing knives that stick to targets when thrown, dealing Blast b.png Blast damage in a small radius when manually detonated via Alternate Fire.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals Blast b.png Blast damage.

Advantages:

  • Innate Blast b.png Blast damage - effective against shields.
  • Pinpoint accuracy.
  • Very fast reload speed.
  • High projectile velocity, making them easy to use at range.
  • Mines can stick to surfaces, including enemies and allies.
  • Silent - will not be present on opponent's minimap.
  • User can detonate charges on command via Alternate Fire, giving the player precise timing in detonation.
  • Up to four deployed mines can be ready for detonation at the same time.
  • Small blast radius and controlled detonation makes self damage unlikely. 
  • Two Madurai Pol.svg Polarities.

Disadvantages:

  • Innate Blast b.png Blast damage - less effective against health.
  • Projectiles have very slow travel time with arcing.
  • Explosions can cause self-damage.
  • Semi-automatic fire, unlike other throwing weapons.
  • Extremely ammo inefficient.
    • Tied with InfProximityStars.png Pox for second lowest magazine size of all throwing-type secondaries, behind TaserStar.png Castanas/NLCastanas.png Sancti Castanas.
    • Extremely low ammo capacity of 16; requires just 4 reloads to fully deplete all ammo reserves.
  • Can only have eight deployed mines out at once.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

The blueprint may be purchased from the Tenno Lab for Credits64.png15,000, or pre-made with an inventory slot and pre-installed Orokin Catalyst from the Market for Platinum64.png175.
