The Marelok combines the stopping power of a rifle with the portability of a pistol.

In essence, the Marelok pistol is a shortened DEGrinlok Grinlok that has a higher fire rate, at the cost of lower damage and accuracy, as well as reduced critical damage, magazine size, and status chance.

  • Below average critical multiplier.
  • Inaccuracy is noticeable over long range.
  • Low magazine size.
  • High recoil.


Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Due to the Marelok's low accuracy, additional bullets generated via Multishot will sometimes hit enemies behind or next to the main target, giving the illusion of Punch Through.
    • For this reason, Mod TT 20pxMagnum Force's accuracy penalty is very noticeable at higher ranks.


  • The Marelok is essentially a cut-down DEGrinlok Grinlok, trading out accuracy for increased firepower and rate of fire. Like the Grinlok, its base stats are well-suited for builds that maximize the chance and damage of critical hits, and those that cause many status effects.
  • The Marelok is a great sidearm for dealing with enemies at short to mid range for players who have a sniper or bow for their primary weapon. The Marelok's firepower is strong enough to be considered a sub-primary weapon.
  • In order to reach the full fire-rate, one must fire the next shot just before the "lever-action" animation is completed.


  • The Marelok is likely named after the Mare's Leg, which refers to a lever-action rifle cut down to the size of a large pistol.
    • Closer inspection reveals that the Marelok is indeed a Grinlok with its barrel and stock cut down to size and its magazine moved to the bottom of the gun.
  • The Marelok's description initially misspelled it as Marelock. This was fixed shortly afterward.
  • The Marelok is spun around the finger lever after every shot, which was mentioned in Devstream 22 to be a reference to a lever-action shotgun used in the movie Terminator 2
  • The Marelok was first showcased in Devstream 22 along with the Grinlok. It was supposed to be released alongside the Grinlok and come as a dual/akimbo weapon, but its release was delayed due to the additional coding required to handle the animations involved.
  • The color scheme of the Marelok is darker compared to the Grinlok.
  • Currently, the only Grineer units that use the Marelok are Shik Tal, and the Kuva Shield Lancer, with the former's Marelok having been modified to fire rockets rather than bullets.
