Forged in the fires of rebel struggle, this shotgun is a force for liberation.

The Vaykor Hek is a Hek Hek variant available only from Steel Meridian, boasting double the magazine capacity of the base variant and a faster rate of fire, but it does, however, take slightly longer to reload than the base variant.
