Solid, dependable and deadly. The Karak is a standard issue rifle in many Grineer platoons.

It features high damage, high accuracy, and a good fire rate, offset by its fairly low magazine size and limited critical hit potential. Overall, it serves as a very solid rifle capable for any range of combat.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • With a Madurai Pol polarity, the Karak is recommended to either have Serration, Split Chamber, or Speed Trigger as its first mod.
  • The Karak is a solid anti-Corpus weapon due to its slight bias towards Impact damage over Puncture and Slash damage. Consider adding Bane of Corpus mods to further increase its effectiveness against them.
  • The Karak is a very versatile weapon, good at combating all enemies, but aside from its high Impact damage and rate of fire, it doesn't excel in anything. 


  • The end of the bound strap on the midsection of the gun has movement/cloth physics like the Syandanas; it flaps loosely whilst moving and firing the weapon.
  • Aesthetically, the rifle appears to be heavily based on the M16 assault rifle, with its filename data referring to it as the "GrineerM16Rifle", reinforcing the connection.
  • This is the first official automatic Grineer Assault Rifle introduced in the game (following the burst-fire Hind rifle), as the Grakata is considered to be a submachine gun and the Gorgon is more of a Light Machine Gun.
  • The weapon was introduced in Update 11.5.
