Characteristics

This weapon deals primarily Blast b.png Blast damage.

Advantages:

  • Innate Blast b.png Blast damage – effective against Machinery and Fossilized.
    • Physical contact with grenades deal Puncture b.svg Puncture damage.
  • High critical chance and damage.
  • Grenades explode on impact after travelling 6 meters, either on enemies or terrain. This minimium arming distance mitigates self-damage.
  • Direct hits cause knockdown, whether or not the grenade explodes.
  • Grenades have a blast radius of 5 meters.
  • Pinpoint accuracy.
  • Can use the launcher-exclusive mods Mod TT 20px.pngAdhesive Blast and Mod TT 20px.pngFirestorm.

Disadvantages:

  • Innate Blast b.png Blast damage – less effective against Ferrite Armor.
    • Explosion damage cannot be increased by Slash b.svg Slash, Impact b.svg Impact or Puncture b.svg Puncture damage mods.
    • Has linear damage falloff from 100% to 50% from ?m to ?m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Low status chance.
  • Grenades have travel time, heavy arcing, and needs to travel 6m before being explosive.
    • A grenade hitting an enemy without exploding causes little damage with little-to-no critical chance.
  • Explosions can cause self-damage.
    • Minimum travel length of 6 meters before being explosive should prevent accidental self-damage unless using Mod TT 20px.pngFirestorm or rapidly moving towards the grenade's impact area before it explodes.
  • Extremely low magazine capacity of just 1 round, requires frequent reloading.
  • Draws from the rare sniper ammo pool.

Weapon Loadouts

Notes

  • Has a 5 second fuse when traveling in the air, after which it fill fizzle out and no longer explode. This is only prevalent if shooting straight up however, due to the arc the grenades have.
  • Pressing the reload key manually after firing will remove the delay between firing and reloading, slightly speeding up the process.
  • The Tonkor's grenades' self-damage will most likely kill the player in even a single explosion, including Inaros, however getting it to explode within range is rare.
  • If Mod TT 20px.pngAdhesive Blast is used, the grenade will deal no damage and fizzle out if it lands within 6m of the player. If landing past 6m it will explode after an extremely short delay.
  • The Tonkor's grenade flight trails are affected by the weapon's energy color, but the explosions themselves are a mix of the Tonkors energy color, and your Warframe's energy color.
  • The direct impact of the grenades have no chance to score critical hits.

Tips

  • Projectile Speed modifiers like Zephyr's Mod TT 20px.pngJet Stream or Mod TT 20px.pngTerminal Velocity will help increase its launch speed significantly.
  • Punch through can cause the Tonkor's projectiles to pierce enemies (while knocking them down) and thin walls at close range, potentially exploding behind them.
    • However, it will also prevent the grenade from exploding on the initial impact at longer ranges.

Trivia

  • The Grineer text on the side of its barrel Grineer A.svgGrineer N.svgGrineer M.svg translates to "ANM".
    • Previous design concepts show Grineer A.svgGrineer L.svgGrineer L.svg ("ALL"). [1]
  • The Tonkor's breech-loading design is derived from the M79 grenade launcher, albeit with the ability to hold two rounds instead of one prior to an update.
    • Oddly, the Tonkor's reload animation appears to consist of loading one grenade instead of two.
    • It seems that these "grenades" are actually power cells with a built-in launching mechanism.
  • Adding punch through and firing at a close range surface will cause two grenades (regardless of multishot) to appear and fizzle out, despite the actual projectile(s) continuing through the surface.
  • Previously, the Tonkor was able to launch teammates into the air, and could even move them around while they were channeling stasis-related abilities (Mesa's Peacemaker, Nyx's Absorb, etc.). This was removed to discourage griefing and exploits.
