Weapon LoadoutsEdit

Main article: Category:Strun Build

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.


  • Using the 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.


  • 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 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.
  • The listed damage is actually the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 16.5 Impact b Impact, 4.5 Puncture b Puncture and 9 Slash b Slash.
  • The listed status chance is the base chance per shot that at least one pellet will proc a status. The actual base status chance per pellet is ~2.21%.


  • 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. They now wield a Sobek.
  • The Strun is most likely a Tenno weapon, despite its augmentation the 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, which is a weapon that has received a Prime version, proving it as Orokin technology.
