Tips[edit | edit source]

  • (As with the GrineerLeverActionPistol.png Marelok) In order to reach the full fire-rate, one must fire the next shot just before the "lever-action" animation is completed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to update 15.13, you were unable to alter the cyan Energy color.
  • When stolen by the Drahk Master, as with all Syndicate weapons it reverts to its original variants skin (The default Marelok) when left on the ground.
    • The Vaykor Marelok skin returns once picked back up.
  • Unlike the other five Syndicate weapons, the word 'vaykor' appears to not be a derivative word or have any meaning. Although, there is a possibility it is a Grineer corruption of the word "valor."
  • The Vaykor Marelok was the first item to have the "Vaykor" prefix, with the Vaykor Syandana following second.
