Launch super-heated slugs at individual foes, or hurl the entire weapon and ignite groups of enemies in a flash inferno.
The Javlok is a staff-like primary weapon that fires slow moving fireballs that deal Heat damage. Its unique alternate fire allows the weapon itself to be thrown at enemies, dealing area-of-effect damage.
The Javlok's alternate fire throws the weapon itself at the target, inflicting 150 physical damage to the impaled target and 600 area-of-effect Heat damage to all enemies within the impact radius. It also has Impact, Puncture and Slash damage on physically hitting enemies, which can proc their respective status effects.
The Javlok will remain at the location where it was thrown for ~20 seconds after landing, automatically teleporting to the player after said duration or until the player manually picks the Javlok back up for use again.
Throwing the weapon does not consume ammo.
The Javlok's alt-fire has a max throwing range of ~50m (though it will be displayed as 47m due to the ~3m the player moves forward when throwing the weapon).
Although the alt-fire AoE inflicts Heat damage, it has a guaranteed knockback effect, staggering all affected enemies for a short time.
While the Javlok's secondary fire can be charged while wall-latching or mounting a zipline, the weapon itself will not be thrown until the player dismounts from the wall or zipline, upon which the Javlok will immediately launch.
The Javlok pairs well with Ember as her Accelerant ability multiplies the amount of Heat damage taken by an affected enemy, and the Javlok deals exclusively Heat damage if left unmodded.
Both the primary and alt-fires of the Javlok are can be controlled by Ivara'sNavigator.
Will hit all enemies currently affected by Vauban's Vortex.
When picking back up, it might not auto switch back to the Javlok, forcing the user to switch weapons.
Sometimes the Javlok will not be able to be equipped after picking up for a period of time.
When thrown, the Javlok returns to its default colors until picked up by the player.
In the Simulacrum, throwing the Javlok than changing your primary weapon before it returns will disable your primary weapon until you exit the Simulacrum.
The name is a play on "Javelin" and the "Lok" naming scheme which is common to Grineer weapons.
The Javlok bears some similarities to Stargate's Ma'Tok staff weapon. Aside from general spear-like design, the two weapons share low rates of fire, considerable firepower, and limited effective range.
