CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals Blast b Blast damage.

Advantages:

  • Fourth highest base damage of all throwing-type secondaries, behind InfProximityStars Pox, TaserStar Castanas, and NLCastanas Sancti Castanas.
    • Innate Blast b Blast damage – effective against Machinery, Robotics, and Fossilized.
    • Explosion deals an additional 150% damage when stuck to a surface, including enemies and allies.
  • High critical chance.
  • Very high status chance.
  • Pinpoint accuracy.
  • Very fast reload speed.
  • High projectile velocity, making them easy to use at range.
  • Mines stick to surfaces, including enemies and allies.
  • Guaranteed Puncture b Puncture proc.
  • Silent, even if the projectile hits the enemy.
  • User can detonate charges on command via Alternate Fire, giving the player precise timing in detonation.
  • Up to eight deployed mines can be ready for detonation at the same time.
  • Extra projectiles generated by Multishot have a very wide horizontal spread, effective at covering large groups of enemies.
  • Two Madurai Pol Polarities.
  • Small blast radius and controlled detonation makes self damage unlikely. 

Disadvantages:

  • Innate Blast b Blast damage – less effective against Ferrite Armor.
  • Explosions can cause self-damage.
  • Semi-automatic fire, unlike other throwing weapons.
  • Extremely ammo inefficient.
    • Tied with InfProximityStars Pox for second lowest magazine size of all throwing-type secondaries, behind TaserStar Castanas/NLCastanas Sancti Castanas.
    • Extremely low ammo capacity of 12; requires just 3 reloads to fully deplete all ammo reserves.
  • Can only have eight deployed mines out at once.
    • ​Extra projectiles generated by Multishot will count towards this limit.
