A Lato equipped in each hand. Twice the clip size and fire rate, but reload time is doubled and accuracy is lowered.
The Aklato is a dual wield version of the single Lato, which features a higher fire rate and magazine size, while having lower critical potential and accuracy. Impact is also lowered so that Slash can be increased.
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, having the weapon fire not as fast as it could.
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 purchase platinum through Rixty will receive 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 Aklato pistols.
The Lato was buffed to be more in line with MK-1 weaponry as of Update 14.0.
As of Update Update 15.16 the Aklato now does as much damage as the Lato per shot, previously damage was 12 per shot.
The Aklato and Lato have undergone several changes over the games lifespan. Some changes would make the weapons deal the same amount of damage, and others would completely change them. Currently, they deal the same base damage but their damage types are slightly switched around, with lower impact and higher slash damage.
