Chew through the enemy with this vicious automatic hand shotgun.

The Pyrana is a secondary automatic LotusBlack.png Tenno shotgun, available from the Tenno Lab. With its fast fire rate and high Damage/Slash DamageDmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage, the Pyrana can easily decimate groups of lightly armored targets or the Infested. However, this is counterbalanced by its high recoil and damage falloff.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64.png 5,000.

Patch History[edit | edit source]

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 0.83333333333333% to 2.5%.
