*These enemies use a modified version.
The sleek lines of the Detron conceal its ferocious nature. The hand cannon's semi-automatic action takes down enemies with speed and efficiency.

The Detron is a radiological pistol shotgun used by Detron Crewmen and was one of two possible rewards for The Gradivus Dilemma event, the other being the Brakk. While it was not awarded from the event, as the Corpus lost the conflict, its blueprint and components are now dropped by the Zanuka Hunter.

    • Smaller magazine size (5 vs. 8).

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Detron parts and blueprint are not tradable.
  • The damage listed is the combination of all seven pellets' damage values, the actual damage per pellet is 15.


  • The Detron can be made into an effective anti-Grineer weapon by adding Corrosive b Corrosive damage and Blast b Blast damage, allowing it to deal extra damage against Ferrite ArmorAlloy Armor and Machinery.
  • In a similar vein, Magnetic b Magnetic damage can be added to drastically improve performance vs Corpus shields, whilst Gas b Gas improves performance against Infested.
  • The Detron's Index mod, Thermagnetic Shells, causes enemies killed by it to explode, dealing radial Magnetic b Magnetic damage to all nearby enemies.


  • Colloquially, a "hand cannon" often refers to an extremely powerful pistol chambered for a high caliber cartridge such as the .500 S&W Magnum or .50 Action Express.
  • In Livestream 17, the developers jokingly claimed that the Detron pistols intended as rewards for the Gradivus Dilemma were "melted down and used to make MOAs." Despite being facetious, this has more or less proven to be true, as the Zanuka Hunter drops the Detron blueprint and parts.
  • Like the Flux Rifle and Amprex, the Detron does not follow the Corpus weapon naming convention.
  • During the reload animation, a pack of 6 energy cells is ejected from the gun, although, the Detron has only the capability of firing 5 rounds before reloading. This pack can be found on the floor after reloading.
    • The ejected magazine will appear in the default colors no matter what the player has selected.
  • The Detron had an entry in the Codex shortly before players could actually obtain it (at the time, the Zanuka Hunter dropped nothing upon defeat).
  • The existence of the Detron Mara hints that this is actually built on a much older design, raising questions about the origins of the Corpus.
