Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • The higher firerate may be comfortably made use of by PC players by making an alternative weapon fire keybind on downward mousewheel scroll. It must be noted, however, that scrolling the wheel too fast causes oversampling, which would make the weapon not fire as fast as it is able to.


  • Previously, Aklato used the same icon and in-game model as Akbolto. It was changed several patches later.
  • It can be noted that for some users Aklato appears to land shots near the top of the reticle.
  • As with other dual pistols, wielding the Aklato while holding a Corpus datamass will result in the Warframe wielding a single pistol, but with retained magazine size and reload time.
  • Players who purchased platinum through Rixty also received a free Aklato, along with a unique, Rixty-only skin with a free Orokin Catalyst installed.
  • The name is likely derived from "akimbo" and "Lato."
  • In the eight minute Dark Sector trailer, in which the game was much more like Warframe than the final product was, an Excalibur-wearing Hayden Tenno used  the Aklato pistols.
