Notes[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The explosions will cause the player to stagger slightly as well, interrupting attacks, so the player may want to wait for the explosion to occur then rush the enemy after if they wish to take advantage of the finisher openers.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Zakti is the first weapon to have Damage/Gas DamageDmgGasSmall64.png Gas as its primary damage type.
  • śaktí is a Hindi and Sanskrit word meaning force, energy, or potency.
  • The Zakti's reload animation involves ejecting a visible pistol magazine from the top and receiving an invisible magazine from the bottom, although the magazine has an overtravel stop (seen when ejected). This is clearly visible in Captura, and the magazine can be seen on the ground after reloading, still with a round (visually similar to a 9m) in the magazine.
