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.


This weapon primarily deals DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.


  • High DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage – effective against health.
  • Semi-auto fire has good critical chance.
  • Burst-fire has good status chance.
  • High accuracy.
  • Large magazine size.
  • Highest number of shots per burst out of all burst-fire rifles.
  • Burst-fire has low recoil.
  • Innate Madurai Pol.svg polarity.




The Hind's blueprint can be purchased from the Market.

  • This weapon was introduced in Update 9.6 (2013-08-16).
  • 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.


  • 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.png Shred or Mod TT 20px.png Metal Auger.
  • Mod TT 20px.png Stabilizer 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.


  • 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 DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage, and instead focused mostly on DmgSlashSmall64.png 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.
