Tips[edit | edit source]

  • While possessing an Auto trigger, the Zhuge is best used when fired in bursts to better aim shots and manage its small magazine. On the other hand, its automatic fire combined with its native knockback makes it good when strafing against multiple enemies, or shooting a single tough enemy multiple times.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Zhuge was originally introduced in Warframe China as a timed-exclusive item, alongside the Nunchaku.png Ninkondi and LiDagger.png Spira.
  • The Zhuge is named after the Chinese word for the repeating crossbow, Zhūgé nǔ (諸葛弩), literally meaning "the Zhuge [Liang] crossbow", in turn named after its purported inventor Zhuge Liang. Zhuge Liang was a Chinese chancellor that lived during the Three Kingdoms Period of China, and is considered one of the greatest strategists of the era.
  • The Zhuge is the fourth crossbow introduced in the game, after the TnoPrmryXbow.png Attica and DEBallistica.png Ballistica/RVBallistica.png Rakta Ballistica.
