With pinpoint accuracy, the Grinlok lever-action repeating rifle can easily find the soft spot on any target.

The Grinlok is a IconGrineerB.svgGrineer lever-action rifle crafted from the Chem lab via clan research. By nature, the Grinlok sports high damage with accurate delivery, supported by its high critical damage and very high status chance, but its extremely low fire rate and small magazine size hampers its ability to manage crowds of enemies.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily DmgImpactSmall64.pngImpact damage.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Grinlok often ragdolls enemies on lethal shots, a side effect of it dealing mainly DmgImpactSmall64.pngImpact damage.
  • The Grinlok's focus on both DmgImpactSmall64.pngImpact and DmgSlashSmall64.pngSlash damage makes it generally effective against the Corpus and the Infested.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • While the Grinlok is similar to the Latron.pngLatron, it comes with a lower magazine capacity and slower rate of fire, making it more punishing for missed shots. Focus on aiming at heads or weak spots.
  • Mod TT 20px.pngShred is an excellent mod to help the Grinlok with crowd control, as it increases its slow rate of fire while piercing through groups of enemies, letting each shot deal its massive damage to multiple targets.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The News tab in the UI mistakenly referred to this gun as Grinlock.
  • The weapon's name may be a combination/corruption of "Grineer" and "Flintlock", the latter of which was an early firing mechanism in guns used in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.
    • Despite the unusual combination of technologies mentioned, a lever-action flintlock rifle did exist in real life.
  • While GrineerLeverActionPistol.pngMarelok is, theoretically, a sawn-off pistol version of this rifle, its magazine is curiously relocated.
