The Hikou Prime can ricochet (rarely) off surfaces, as floors and walls. Ricocheted shots can damage and kill whoever gets in the way.
The Hikou Prime can pass through Volt's Electric Shield.
Make sure to adjust your aim for moving targets, both vertically and horizontally.
Combining both Pistol Multishot Mods, ( Barrel Diffusion and Lethal Torrent), as well as the Corrupted Mod, Magnum Force, allows for easier barrages against mobile/running Targets.
When using at a distance, aim above the enemy to adjust for Hikou Prime's arc.
High proc rate means that mods are more likely to slow enemies, making them easier to hit with further attacks.
Cold Using a Pistol Ammo Mutation or Primed Pistol Ammo Mutation mod can help regain lost ammo when needed.
As with all thrown sidearms, when performing a Jump Kick your frame will hold the Hikou Prime as dual pistols. Upon hitting the ground and sliding, this will quickly switch back to as it should be.
Hikou (Hikō or 飛行 ) in Japanese means "flight."
The Hikou are based off the Japanese throwing stars from ninjutsu tradition. Throwing stars were primarily used as distractions, and were often called the "invisible blades" due to a thrown star being able to cut enemies unseen from any direction.
