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 a vandalized Braton, sold as a special edition in the Market between February 15, 2013 to February 19, 2013, in celebration of Open Beta. The Braton Vandal features a higher base damage, accuracy, and status chance, though it sacrifices fire-rate and Puncture damage in trade for Slash. The Braton Vandal does not deviate far from its origins, performing as a multipurpose rifle for any situation.

The Braton Vandal is a limited-edition weapon, and could only be obtained during the window it was sold for on Open Beta release.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64‍ 1.

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.


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


  • 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.


  • Prior to Update 7.11.0, the Stalker used a Braton Vandal as his primary weapon.
  • The Braton Vandal features a different sound to that of the Standard Braton.
  • It was confirmed by DERebecca that the Braton Vandal and Lato Vandal weapons will remain exclusive and not available in the future.[1] However, since the confirmation post, various new Vandal weapons have been introduced as rewards from events, opening the possibility of their return as future event rewards.
  • 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 damages compared to the regular Braton.
