CODEX Entry: Furax
These power gauntlets lack the range of most melee weapons, but FURAX is far more devastating when you strike an enemy in close combat.
Grineer Powerfists, Furax has a higher base charge damage compared to most other melee weapons. However, the Furax has a much more limited strike range that manifests as a simple close range thrust, making connecting with a charged attack slightly more difficult.
