The Strun is a standard shotgun. Reliable, versatile and deadly.

The Strun is a powerful shotgun that is the successor to the Strun.png MK1-Strun. The Strun bears good damage per shot and decent status chance, capable of killing most light enemies in a single shot.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64.png 7,500.


  • This weapon deals primarily DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage.
  • Innate multishot of 12 pellets.
  • Reloads one shell at a time at a rate of 0.5 seconds per shell, which can be interrupted at any point, allowing for tactical reloading while in combat.
    • Reloading has a 0.5 second delay to start and a 0.25 second delay to end.
    • Since the weapon reloads one shell at a time, mods that increase magazine size also increases total reload speed.


  • High overall status chance.
  • Highest pellet count of all pellet shotguns.
  • Good ammo efficiency.
  • Normal Attack
    • Highest multishot
    • High disposition


  • Has linear damage falloff from 100% to 60% from 12m to 25m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Tied with Strun.png MK1-Strun for the second slowest reload speed of all shotguns, after StrunWraith.png Strun Wraith.
  • Normal Attack
    • Very low crit chance
    • Low magazine
    • Very low damage
    • Below average effective fire rate
    • Very low average number of procs per shot
    • Very low average number of crits per shot
    • Very low reload speed
    • Low max ammo
    • Very low status chance
    • Very low crit multiplier



A built Strun can be purchased from the Market for Credits64.png 25,000.


  • Reload time is 0.75s + 0.5s per round, coming to 3.75 total seconds to reload a completely empty mag.
    • This time will further increase if magazine mods such as Mod TT 20px.png Ammo Stock are used.
  • Compared to the Boar.png Boar, the Strun has a tighter pellet cone and a much more efficient ammunition economy. The Hek.png Hek has an even smaller base magazine size than the Strun, but bears an even tighter pellet cone and a more efficient ammunition economy. The Strun could be considered the middle ground of the three.
  • Before Update 12.0 (2014-02-05), the weapon's price in the market was Credits64.png 75,000.



  • The Strun appears to use a tubular magazine, presumably the cylindrical protrusion near the rear above the stock - the Warframe will push this section while reloading.
    • Assuming the Warframe is adding shells into this tube, or replacing it, it would imply that the shells used by Strun are extremely small, which is puzzling given the enormous choke.
  • When it was originally released, the Strun was magazine-fed, with the small knob on top of the weapon being its magazine. This was changed into the shell-feed system currently in use.
  • The regular Grineer Trooper previously used this weapon prior to Update 11.0 (2013-11-20), and currently wield Sobek.png Sobeks.
    • Corrupted Crewmen use the Strun in Void missions, except their versions fire a burst of yellow energy pellets instead of bullets.
    • The Strun shares many similarities to the Boar.
  • The Strun received a PBR (Physically Based Rendering) update in Update 16.7 (2015-06-04).

Patch History[]

Update 30.9 (2021-11-11)

  • Fixed reloading an extra bullet into the Strun if you fired 5 or more shots before the reload.

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 1.6666666666667% to 5%.
