Weapon Type Assault Rifle
Grinlok is a Grineer lever-action rifle crafted from the Chem lab via clan research. By nature, the Grinlok sports high damage with accurate delivery, at the cost of fire rate and magazine size, making the Grinlok suitable at mid to long ranges.
This weapon deals primarily
Little to no vertical recoil.
Very small spread.
Fairly high damage.
Slash Very high status chance.
Low Zoom makes it easier to use at close range.
Very good ammo efficiency as it draws from the rifle ammo pool.
Can equip the Grinlok-exclusive Deadly Sequence and Grinloked ( Conclave only) mods.
Small magazine size.
Puncture Low Zoom makes it ill-suited for long range.
The Grinlok often ragdolls enemies on lethal shots, a side effect of it dealing mainly damage.
Impact The Grinlok's focus on both and Impact damage makes it generally effective at against the Slash Corpus and the Infested.
The Grinlok appears to have a "dud round" in every other magazine - while almost all shots are accurate, there appear to be at least several instances where a bullet will land quite far from the crosshair.
This is unconfirmed, but may potentially explain inconsistent accuracy results among players.
While the Grinlok is similar to the Latron, 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.
With Malignant Force, High Voltage, Thermite Rounds, Rime Rounds, Hammer Shot and Rifle Aptitude equipped, the Grinlok can achieve a status chance of 100%, making every single shot deal status effect procs. While the actual combined status chance is about 138.25%, the UI does not show status chance values above 100%, as any value above that has no effect on the proc chance.
With Split Chamber, the second shot created will always deal the same proc as the original shot, essentially dealing the same Status Effect twice on the target.
Shred is a recommended mod if the user prefers crowd control, increasing its slow rate of fire while piercing large groups with ease.
The News tab in the UI mistakenly referred to this gun as Grinlo ck.
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 in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.
Despite the unusual combination of technologies mentioned, a lever-action flintlock rifle did exist in real life.
