Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The first and only melee weapon to have no imposed "roll" on wall attacks.
  • The stealth finisher physically moves the player's Warframe and the execution target forward, potentially throwing the player into bottomless pits as well as moving the target into line of sight of other enemies, alerting them when they otherwise would not have seen it.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Gunsen (軍扇) is a type of Japanese war fan used by the common soldiery for cooling themselves in hot weather. Unlike other types of war fans, the Gunsen were used more for their intended utility (fanning oneself) than for battle.
  • The Gunsen was the first war fan type melee weapon avaliable.
