The Akzani are Mirage's signature rapid firing dual pistols that rely on deep magazines to fuel it's high projectile count per second. While they deal low damage per bullet, they sport a larger ammo reserve than other similar pistols which can help relieve ammo inefficiency.

- Currently the Akzani holds the distinction of having the third largest reserve ammo capacity of all secondary weapons, having 400 rounds of ammo compared to the usual 210 for secondaries (only beaten by the Synoid Gammacor, with 450, and the Twin Grakatas, with 1200). With a maxed rank Trick Mag mod, the Akzani can increase its capacity to hold 760 rounds of ammo.
- The Akzani have very similar stats to the Dex Furis, though the former has lower overall damage and 2.5% less crit chance. However, the Akzani have the advantage of having nearly double the reserve ammo capacity, making it less likely to run out of ammo than the Dex Furis.
- Currently, there is no single "Zani" variant.
- Despite being the favored pistols of Mirage, her Prime variant did not feature an Akzani "Prime", instead she wielded the Akbolto Prime as her weapon of choice.
- This is the first secondary weapon to feature a default extended ammunition size.
- This is the third secondary weapon said to have been favored by a specific Warframe. First was Akbolto with Nyx and second was Twin Vipers with Banshee as limited time bundles.
- The word "Zani" is derived from the zanni, a character type in the Commedia dell'arte known as an astute servant or trickster. The Harlequin (the source for Mirage's overall design) is one of the most well-known zanni.
- To reload, the small magazines slide up through the top of the weapon, and then slide back in. The player will also angle the weapons forward, which gives the illusion the weapon itself is animated.
