The Strun is a standard issue shotgun for all Tenno. Reliable, versatile and deadly.

The MK1-Strun is the MK1 variant of the Strun.png Strun and is standard issue shotgun for new Tenno recruits. Although its damage is quite low, it has decent status potential.

It can also be sold for Credits64.png 2,500.


This weapon deals primarily DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage.


  • High DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage – effective against shields.
  • High overall status chance.
  • Innate multishot of 10 pellets.
  • Good ammo efficiency.
  • Reloads one shell at a time at a rate of 0.5 seconds per shell, which can be interrupted at any point, allowing for planned reloading.


  • Tied with Cedo.png Cedo for the second lowest base damage of all pellet shotguns, after Boar.png Boar.
  • Has linear damage falloff from 100% to 50% from 15m to 25m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Low critical chance.
  • Low accuracy.
  • Small magazine size.
  • Tied with Strun.png Strun for the second slowest reload speed of all shotguns, after StrunWraith.png Strun Wraith.
  • Reloading has a 0.5 second delay to start and a 0.25 second delay to end.
  • Individual shell reload causes magazine increasing effects to increase total reload speed.



  • Reload time is 0.75s + 0.5s per round, coming to 3.75 total seconds to reload a completely empty mag.
    • This time will further increase if magazine mods such as Mod TT 20px.png Ammo Stock are used.
  • The MK-1 Strun is a slightly weaker version of the standard Strun, with less overall damage and a slightly slower rate of fire.


A built MK1-Strun can be purchased from the Market for Credits64.png 15,000.


  • Using the Mod TT 20px.png Shotgun Ammo Mutation mod can help regain ammo when needed, although not as often as the full auto shotguns.
  • Weapon's spread cone can be shrunk by zooming in.


  • The Strun appears to use a tubular magazine, presumably the cylindrical protrusion near the rear above the stock - the Warframe will push this section while reloading.
    • Assuming the Warframe is adding shells into this tube, or replacing it, it would imply that the shells used by Strun are extremely small, which is quite puzzling given the enormous size of the barrel diffuser.
  • The regular Grineer Trooper used to use this weapon prior to Update 11.0 (2013-11-20). They now wield a Sobek.png Sobek.
  • The Strun is most likely a Tenno weapon, despite its augmentation the StrunWraith.png Strun Wraith, a Grineer-focused customization. The Strun bears a faint Tenno marking on its stock as proof.
    • Additionally, the Strun shares many similarities to the Boar.png Boar, which is a weapon that has received a Prime version, proving it as Orokin technology.

Patch History[]

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

Greater than 100% Status having meaning

Shotguns have a unique Role here based on a very patch-work history with how they interact with Status Chance. A Shotgun that shoots 99% Status Chance would give you 35% (roughly) status per pellet. 100% Status Gives you 100% Status per pellet. This huge jump in performance happens with just a 1% gain - why? Well, to answer that we have to look at our choice to make what the UI conveys reality. It would feel broken to shoot a Shotgun with 100% Status and not see a perfect spread of Effects. In reality, to make Status consistent we have to treat Shotguns as a special case.

Shotguns as a special case means we have buffed the Status Chance of all Shotguns by x3 or greater. The UI now behaves to show the reality that you are determining Status Chance per pellet.

  • (Undocumented) Status chance per projectile increased from 2% to 6%.

Update 17.0 (2015-07-31)
Several changes have been made to shotgun weapons across the board -- resulting in a list of changes similar from weapon to weapon. The following list of changes apply to all Primary Shotguns with exception to the Phage:

  • Increased damage across all shotguns.
  • Damage after projectile falloff has been increased for all shotguns.
  • Some shotguns have been given improvements to reload speed.
  • Some shotguns have received improvements to their projectile speed.
  • Death at close to mid range will now toss enemies into a forceful ragdoll.
  • (Undocumented) Strun series changed from magazine-based reload to shell-by-shell reload.
