CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals primarily Gas b Gas damage.

Advantages:

  • High Puncture b Puncture and innate Gas b Gas damage – effective against health and shields.
  • Direct hits deal Gas b Gas damage - effective against shields.
    • Darts explode shortly after hitting a surface in a 5-meter area of effect dealing Gas b Gas damage which produces clouds that inflict Toxin b Toxin damage – effective against health.
    • Does not inflict self-damage.
  • Very high reload speed.
  • High ammo efficiency.

Disadvantages:

  • Low Impact b Impact and no Slash b Slash damage – less effective against shields and health.
  • Direct hits deal Gas b Gas damage, which is less effective against health
    • Exploding darts cannot deal Slash b Slash, Impact b Impact, and Puncture b Puncture damage; does not benefit from mods that convert these damage types.
  • Very low magazine capacity.
  • High recoil, even more so when firing from the hip.
  • Darts have travel time, making them ineffective against targets at longer ranges.
  • Darts explode after a brief delay rather than on impact, somewhat delaying each shot's total damage from being dealt at once.

NotesEdit

  • Darts can detonate off of objects and terrain as well, enemy hits are not required.
    • Darts that land on objects will detonate with delay.

TriviaEdit

  • The Zakti is the first weapon to have Gas b Gas as its primary damage type.
  • śaktí is a Hindi and Sanskrit word meaning force, energy, or potency.
  • The Zakti's reload animation involves ejecting a real life pistol magazine from the top and receiving an invisible magazine from the bottom, although the magazine has an overtravel stop (seen when ejected). This is clearly visible in Captura, and the magazine can be seen on the ground after reloading, still with a round (visually similar to a 9m) in the magazine.

BugsEdit

  • Dart explosion audio will sometimes cut short.
  • Darts sometimes lodge themselves in terrain without detonating.
  • The Zakti cannot equip some Conclave mods such as Mod TT 20pxHydraulic Barrel.
  • When shot by MirageIcon272 Mirage's clones during her HallOfMirrors130xDark Hall Of Mirrors ability, the clones' darts will detonate on contact instead of after a delay.
