Notes[edit | edit source]

  • There is a slight delay after firing a knife before being able to reload, which requires pausing before trying to reload, or tapping the reload button several times.
  • The right handed throw does not land at the same place as the left throw, landing lower and slightly to the right of your aim.
    • This can be counteracted, however, by holding a datamass or a power cell.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Projectile Speed mods will reduce projectile drop and increase projectile speed.
  • For effective use of non-hitscan weapons, it is strongly recommended to learn how to lead your target. In short, leading means aiming ahead of your target so the projectile still hits him. It can be a challenge to learn it, low level Grineer are recommended for practicing

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Spira was one of the items (along with the Nunchaku.png Ninkondi and the RepeatingCrossbow.png Zhuge) initially made exclusive to Warframe China.
    • The Spira has a Prime version, which was given as part of the Chinese Version's Founders Program, along with the Nikana Prime and Excalibur Umbra.
  • The Spira is referred to in the game files as "littlelidaggers", a reference to the Little Li daggers (小李飛刀) which are the signature weapon of the martial artist Li Xunhuan in the famous Xiaoli Feidao novels written by Gu Long.
