The Latron is a highly efficient rifle that performs well at medium and at long range, its accuracy making it a deadly weapon in the hands of skilled marksmen.

The Latron is a high-accuracy, semi-automatic rifle. It features a moderate to low firing rate, high damage-to-bullet ratio and is quite ammo efficent. As a result, the Latron excels at longer-ranged engagements, but falls short when faced with large crowds in close proximity. Additionally, the Latron's exceptional accuracy allows for easier head and weak-point shots.

This weapon can be sold for Credits647,500, it is also a requisite ingredient for Tiberon Tiberon.

TipsEdit

  • Its low base rate of fire and magazine size makes it somewhat less desirable than other rifles against the Infested unless a Punch Through mod is installed.
  • The Latron is very accurate; it can be compared to sniper rifles while being ideal for close or medium range.
  • Rebinding the fire button to the scroll wheel will allow you to fire the gun without having to click for each shot, making best use of the rate of fire.

NotesEdit

  • The Latron is noticeably quiet compared to other rifles, capable of being fired without alerting enemies within the same tile.

TriviaEdit

  • A latron is an antiquated term referring to a robber or brigand.
  • Before Update 7.11, it was available for purchase through the market for Credits, priced at Credits6450,000.
  • Latron used to be a Braton Braton in the closed beta, until both became completely separate weapons.
  • The actual barrel of the Latron appears to be the very thin cylinder on top of the front end of the rifle. If this is the case, the rifle's barrel is extremely short.
  • It seems Latron is fittingly the Primary counterpart of Lato Lato, as the naming aspect relies on adding letters "r" and "n" into the said weapon to become such.
    • In addition, both are engraved with similar symbols on their respective barrels.
  • The Latron is most likely classifiable as a designated marksman rifle (DMR) or a carbine. From a military viewpoint, the Latron could be related to the M1 Carbine, a lightweight assault rifle. Both rifles hold a 15 round clip, though the clip of the Carbine is loaded from underneath the weapon.
  • As of Update 14.5, the Latron is the first weapon to posses both Prime and Wraith variants.
  • Clem uses this weapon before he reacquires his custom Akgrakata Twin Grakatas in the quest A Man of Few Words, a reference to the fan-made comic.
