Weapon Loadouts Edit
The Lato has the unique capability of cutting corpses into pieces, similar to -focused melee weapons. This makes the Lato the prime candidate for a Slash Desecrating Nekros to bring along, as the game considers the cut corpses as separate entities, essentially giving multiple corpses to desecrate from a single enemy and thus yielding more chances to create more drops.
Alternatively, Lato can be used to assist a Desecrating Nekros to yield more loots.
Other known firearms which share the same properties are the AkJagara, Braton Prime, Flux Rifle, Grakata, Kohm, Miter, Panthera, Spectra, Tigris, Vastos ( Vasto, Akvasto and Vasto Prime), and the other Latos variants ( Lato Prime and Lato Vandal).
This weapon is used by the Grineer Lancers in Vor's Prize as a low damage alternative to the Grakatas they normally wield.
The Lato and Braton are the only two weapons to have more than two variants (MK1, Prime and Vandal).
The Lato received a buff to its damage and critical stats in Update 14 to bring it in line with the new MK1 weapons.The Aklato however did not receive this buff until update 15.10
The Lato is the only weapon in Warframe that has a Critical Multiplier of 1.8x
