A short-blade melee weapon with an ace up its sleeve. Send nearby enemies flying with a short-range shockwave.

The Stropha is a IconCorpusB.svg Corpus Gunblade with high damage, critical chance, and critical multiplier that shoots a single, wide but close-ranged shockwave.


This weapon deals primarily DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage on its melee attacks, and DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage on its gunblade shots.



  • Gunblade shots:
    • No DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture and DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage – less effective against armor and health.
      • Damage cannot be increased with DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture or DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage mods.
    • Immediate damage falloff from 100% to 50% after 11m target distance and from 50% to 10 base damage from 15m to 17m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed, for melee weapons only via Mod TT 20px.png Jet Stream).
    • Limited range of 17 meters.
    • Alarming.
    • No bonus damage on headshots.
      • Can still perform headshots to bypass Corpus Shield Gating for example, but does not receive any bonus damage.


The Stropha's main blueprint is a possible reward from defeating the Jackal. Component blueprints can be acquired from within the Granum Void; the Barrel and Blade from Rotation C, the Receiver from Rotation C of Extended Granum Void, and the Stock from Rotation C of the Nightmare Granum Void. All components can be traded between players, but not the main blueprint.
