Justice blinds. Block hits to charge a Radial Blind, when fully charged toggle channeling to unleash it.

The Vaykor Sydon is the Syndicate variant of the GrnTridentWeapon Sydon, available from Steel Meridian. It has the unique ability to store charges when blocking, which can be released as a RadialBlind130xDark Radial Blind once full.


  • The Vaykor Sydon can be acquired by reaching the Rank of General with Steel Meridian, and spending ReputationLargeBlack125,000 to purchase. As with all Syndicate Weapons, the Vaykor Sydon cannot be chosen as the free offering upon ranking up to General rank.
  • Syndicate weapons can be also be acquired via Trading, but only for unranked copies without Forma and Orokin Catalyst installed.
  • Players must have a Mastery Rank of at least 8 to acquire the Vaykor Sydon, either through trading or through the Syndicates themselves.


This weapon deals primarily Puncture b Puncture damage.





  • Blocking attacks with the Vaykor Sydon generates charges, up to 15. Once at 15 charges, Channeling the weapon emits a RadialBlind130xDark Radial Blind, blinding enemies within 15 meters for 5 seconds.
    • The number of charges gained is displayed on the HUD beside the player's health as a Steel Meridian icon. The tip of the weapon also glows brighter as more charges are collected.
    • Blind radius is affected by (Mod TT 20pxPrimed) Mod TT 20pxReach.
    • Nullifier Crewman fields prevent enemies from being blinded.
  • Players gain bonus 50% chance to resist Knockdown or knockback when wielding the Vaykor Sydon.


  • When in a squad, using Mod TT 20pxGuardian Derision allows players to attract aggro, making collecting charges easier.
  • Releasing the blind causes the player to momentarily stand still, similar to when ExcaliburIcon272 Excalibur casts RadialBlind130xDark Radial Blind. This can be counteracted by performing maneuvers to release the charged blind instead of simply releasing block.
  • It's highly suggested to use a durable frame when planning on extensively using the Radial Blind feature.
  • The weapon's Radial Blind feature synergizes well with InarosIcon272 Inaros' innate lifesteal as blinded enemies are opened up to finishers.


  • The concept for the radial blind effect of the Vaykor Sydon was designed by players Tourach and taiiat.
