Designed as a pair, these Grineer sidearms fire projectiles at a slower rate but with greater force and accuracy.

The Twin Gremlins are a pair of Grineer nail guns that fire bolts capable of impaling and pinning enemies to walls at full-auto.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64.png 5,000.


This weapon deals equal physical damage.

  • The bolts shot are implanted, but do not puncture wherever it lands (including railings) like a nailgun should function. Due to this, you can sometimes kill a Shield Lancer through his shield.
  • Flying corpses deal the same damage as the killing shot, not the total damage they received.
  • Despite being an automatic weapon, it only has 210 rounds of ammo in reserve. Increasing the fire rate even with Lethal Torrent will cause players to quickly run out of ammo.


  • The magazine of the Gremlins moves up through the gun as it fires, much like the U10DesignCouncilTennoAR.png Soma, and is ejected forcefully from the top when reloading.
    • The magazine for the Twin Gremlins is known to pass right through the player when reloading.
  • When used with HallOfMirrors130xDark.png Hall Of Mirrors, MirageIcon272.png Mirage's clones will forcefully eject the magazine; however, magazines will still be within the gun
    • The magazines also do not move when used as if fully loaded.
  • This is the first akimbo secondary weapon without a single variant.
  • The text at the bottom of each magazine Grineer B.svgGrineer U.svgGrineer L.svgGrineer L.svgGrineer E.svgGrineer T.svgGrineer S.svg   Grineer F.svgGrineer O.svgGrineer R.svg   Grineer Y.svgGrineer O.svgGrineer U.svgGrineer R.svg   Grineer F.svgGrineer A.svgGrineer C.svgGrineer E.svg roughly translates to "Bullets for your face", rather odd given that, as a nailgun, it only fires nails. The text at the top however, directly translates to "Obey", which is common propaganda for Grineer.
