A special version of the standard Braton rifle with a slower fire rate but offering higher accuracy and damage values. The Braton Vandal has been customized by the Tenno with a blue-green metallic finish, and Lotus branding on the grips.

The Braton Vandal is the Vandal version of the Braton. The Braton Vandal features a higher base damage, accuracy, and status chance, though it sacrifices fire rate and Puncture b Puncture damage in trade for Slash b Slash damage. The Braton Vandal does not deviate far from its origins, performing as a multipurpose rifle for any situation.

The Braton Vandal is currently available as a reward for Elite Sanctuary Onslaught as of Update 22.18.

This weapon can be sold for Credits641.

NotesEdit

  • The Braton Vandal is the only Braton variant to come with a Madurai Pol polarity.

TipsEdit

  • When used extensively or playing solo, the ammunition of an unmodded Braton Vandal can burn down quickly, though not as quickly as the Braton. Consider switching to your pistol or utilizing melee combat when appropriate.
  • When fighting at long ranges, consider firing in short bursts or taking a calculated risk and charging forward. The ammo saved from avoiding sustained long range fighting can compensate for the damage you'll take in melee/short range combat.
  • Use the Rifle Ammo Mutation mod to help regain ammo when needed, or bring Team Ammo Restores.

TriviaEdit

  • Braton Vandal and Lato Vandal were sold as a special edition in the Market between February 15, 2013, to February 19, 2013, in celebration of the Open Beta Weekend, and as such were exclusive to the Closed Beta Testers.
    • In Devstream 77, game developers talked about possibly reintroducing both the Lato Vandal and Braton Vandal; and they made a poll, in which, most players agreed that they should return.
    • Later on, with the inclusion of Sanctuary Onslaught in Update 22.18, these weapons were finally reintroduced into the game after five years of exclusivity.
  • Prior to Update 7.11, the Stalker used a Braton Vandal as his primary weapon.
  • The Braton Vandal features a different sound to that of the Standard Braton.
  • When introduced, the Braton Vandal was a straight upgrade of the Braton, with increased statistical damage and fire-rate over the standard edition. Later on, however, the regular Braton had its stats buffed, possibly due to the debates over the fact that the vandal version was considered by most to be the strongest assault rifle at the time. It was buffed again, later on, to actually equal the damage of the Vandal version, making the Vandal's higher accuracy the only advantage over the Regular.
    • Damage 2.0 completely rebalanced the Braton weapons, giving the Vandal version higher damage but in turn, having less impact and slash damage compared to the regular Braton.
  • As with the old Braton model, the old version of the Braton Vandal's model had an engraving at the end of the black shoulder stock that read, "LUKSOR FORGE" in Corpus. In addition to this, there was binary written on the side closer to the stock, under the Luksor writing, and at the point directly after the writing. When putting them all together from back to bottom to front, they spell out the letters "GG"
    • As with the new Braton Model in place as of Update 19.10, the Braton Vandal has had its old Corpus engravement has been replaced with Orokin engraving, which reads "Evolution" on both sides directly after the black portion of the stock stops.
