A powerful mid-range rifle used by Grineer shock troops, the Hind fires in five round bursts.

The Hind is a Grineer burst rifle used by their Elite Lancers. It fires five-round bursts while maintaining a low recoil allowing all rounds fired to land very close to one another, but has poor critical stats. Pressing Alternate Fire shoots single rounds with higher damage per bullet and critical stats but lower status.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This weapon was introduced in Update 9.6.
  • Mods that affect fire rate will also affect the burst rate, making the Hind very deadly with mods that increase the firerate, and even more so with the addition of punch through.
  • Elite Lancers have the ability to fire the weapon as fast as players can with near maximum firerate mods on. Coupled with decent slash damage and a 10% status, these Lancers are notorious for constantly inflicting players with slash procs that strip away their health.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • New players who prefer burst fire but cannot afford this weapon's heavy building cost should stick with the Burston.png Burston until they have enough resources.
  • The Hind is made significantly better against enemy groups with the addition of Mod TT 20px.pngShred or Mod TT 20px.pngMetal Auger.
  • Mod TT 20px.pngStabilizer effectively reduces the recoil on every burst giving it more pin point precision over long distances or for better headshots.
    • If one does not have Stabilizer or does not wish to install the Mod, a better alternative is moving the mouse down to combat the recoil when firing.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Hind is one of the Grineer weapons to be showcased in the Chemical Lab.
  • The Hind probably derives its name from the NATO reporting name for the famous Mil Mi-24 helicopter gunship/troop transport. Other probable sources of the weapon's name include:
  • The Hind is one of the few Grineer weapons that are not focused on Impact b.svg Impact damage, and instead focused mostly on Slash b.svg Slash. This makes them the least effective gun unit in the Grineer arsenal at taking down shields and punching through armor, while being better equipped against the Infested or Corpus enemies with shields down.
