Slash targets with a single precise bolt from Garuda's signature crossbow. Alt-fire to let loose a barrage of bolts. All bolts have a chance to cause bleeding and headshots have a chance to increase reload speed.

The Nagantaka is GarudaIcon272 Garuda's signature crossbow, firing Slash b Slash bolts with a very high status chance in a semi-automatic fashion. It features an Alternate Fire that unleashes all remaining rounds in the magazine in a rapid-fire volley. Additionally, killing an enemy through a headshot will boost the speed of Nagantaka's next reload. Bolts receive Punch Through when fired by Garuda.

  • Very high base accuracy.
  • Headshot kills from direct bolt damage boosts reload speed by 50%.
  • Guaranteed Impact b Impact proc.
  • Very ammo efficient.
    • High ammo reserve for its magazine size.
    • Uses rifle ammo pickups instead of the scarcer sniper ammo pickups.
  • Alternate Fire shoots all remaining ammunition in the magazine in a quick burst.
    • Benefits from magazine increasing mods to further increase the burst's damage.
    • Abilities can be cast during the burst without interrupting it.
  • Innate 1 meter Punch Through if used by GarudaIcon272 Garuda.
  • Primary fire is Silent.
  • On kill, bodies will follow the arrow that killed them, damaging anyone in their path and pinning the corpse to walls.
  • Counts as a bow in regards to fire rate mods, doubling the fire rate bonus.
  • Can use the bow-exclusive Mod TT 20pxThunderbolt mod.
  • Innate Madurai Pol polarity.


  • Low Impact b Impact and Puncture b Puncture damage – less effective against shields and armor.
  • Primary fire is tied with Hind Hind for the second lowest fire rate of all semi-automatic rifles, after DEGrinlok Grinlok.
  • Tied with Grinlok for the lowest magazine size of all semi-automatic rifles.
  • Fairly slow reload when not boosted by its passive.
  • Projectiles have travel time.
  • Alternate Fire is Alarming, making it ill-suited for stealth gameplay.


  • When used by GarudaIcon272 Garuda, the Nagantaka gains 1 meter innate Punch Through.
  • Can be used in bow-only Sortie missions.
  • The Alternate Fire of the Nagantaka will eject all of the remaining ammunition in the magazine in a single burst.
    • If buffed with unlimited ammo such as from the Reactant Buff, the weapon will only fire its magazine amount at a time, with small delays between each trigger pull.
    • Unlike TnBardPistol Pandero or Mod TT 20pxWild Frenzy, Nagantaka can still be aimed during the burst, allowing the weapon to still benefit from Acolyte Mods.
  • Being knocked over will not interrupt your burst from the weapon's alt fire.
  • The reload speed buff only triggers from headshot kills from direct bolt damage. It does not trigger if killed by a damage over time effect made from a headshot's status proc.
    • No weak spots other than actual heads will trigger this effect.
      • Headshots on invulnerable enemies will still grant this effect, but not with invulnerable bosses.
  • Despite the Alternate Fire's Alarming noise level, it does not break IvaraIcon272 Ivara's Prowl130xDark Prowl. However enemies will still act alerted.


  • Because Slash b Slash procs are common with this weapon, adding Viral b Viral damage to halve enemy health through proccing, will aid to quickly dispatch enemies, bypassing their armor and shields.
  • Rolling can be used to interrupt a burst from the secondary attack, useful for not wasting ammo after a target's death.


  • Nagantaka (नागांतक), Hindi for "The Ender of Snakes","Naga" = Snake and "antak"= Ender ,was one of Garuda's alternate names. This name was given to Garuda as he, according to the mythology, preferred eating the meat of snakes.
