  • High critical chance.
  • Can be fired prematurely, which allows more flexibility in combat.
  • Good status chance.
  • Quick reload.
  • Decent magazine size.
  • Silent weapon.


  • Deals damage, which unlike other damage types is only useful against Robotic, and all robotic enemies except Fusion MOADrones, and bosses have very low hp anyway.

    • When combing elements, damage is added last.
    • Limited variety of advanced damage types combinations.

  • No polarities.
  • Low damage when fired prematurely.

Weapon Loadouts

Main article: Category:Lanka Build

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.


  • To have a "pure" element different from , you will have to add Stormbringer as a placeholder.
  • Projectile shoots off in a random direction when the barrel is "in" a nearby enemy due to the length of the weapon's barrel.
  • Uses the same model as the Snipetron.
  • The charge can be released when charged 25% to release a lower damage, but quicker shot, sacrificing damage for speed.
  • As of Update 11.7, the Lanka charge color is using energy color, before the update it was default blue.


  • Speed Trigger reduces charge time.
    • Pairing it with Shred can reduce the charge time up to ~0.8s.
  • Shooting through Volt's Electric Shield will turn bullets into hitscan.
  • Adding a rank 2 Wildfire will give you two extra bullets, a rank 4 Magazine Warp will give you three. Combine both for a total of 15 bullets in the magazine.
  • It works well with a Loki or Nova on the edge of an open air map.
  • All 'charge weapons' (guns) are now capable of holding their charge during a sprint, and as long as the user starts the charge, they are able to finish charging while they are still sprinting. This is a useful trait for the mobility of the user.
    • Using elevators and opening coop doors also does not cancel the charge, however hacking consoles and opening lockers will. 
    • Sliding when you are about to hit the ground (from any height) is very useful for keeping your charge instead of losing it by rolling
    • Wall running will not cancel the charge, edge grabbing will. 
    • Using a skill will cancel the charge.
  • Use the Sniper Ammo Mutation mod to greatly relieve the low total ammo and ammo drop chance for sniper rifles.
  • As Update 11.3.0, Lanka possess a very high innate punch-through, making Metal Auger unnecessary while Shred becomes less effective.


  • The Lanka uses the Snipetron model and skin. 
  • Lanka is the name of an island fortress in Hindu mythology. This fortress is said to surpass even modern-day structures.
  • The Lanka closely resembles a Railgun, by its charge mechanic and high damage, and is similar to a Railgun Moa's weapon, where it too must charge before firing. However, from the description it would seem to function more like a Coilgun.
  • The Lanka is used by Sgt. Nef Anyo - the final boss of Mars.


  • This is what sniping with Lanka looks like.
  • Lanka in the hands of Sgt. Nef Anyo
  • Lanka really needs a re-skin.
