A special version of the standard Lato pistol with a slower fire rate but offering higher accuracy and damage values. The Lato Vandal has been customized by the Tenno with a blue-green metallic finish, and Lotus branding on the grips.

The Lato Vandal is the Vandal version of the Lato, distributed to the closed beta testers upon the transition to open beta as a special reward. The Lato Vandal has a metallic green-blue color scheme, and bears the Lotus emblem on the grip. The Lato Vandal gains improved damage and accuracy in exchange for a reduced rate of fire.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • It was released on Update 7.0.
  • Comes augmented with a catalyst and its own inventory slot.
  • Used to be similar in performance to the Latron due to its rate of fire, accuracy, and damage prior to Damage 2.0.
  • This special item was given to closed beta testers upon the transition to Open beta, and will be available again some point.
  • Its coloration is adjustable to some degree, which is unique among the Vandal weapons (normally only energy color can be customized).


  • The Lato Vandal has a high chance of cutting corpses into pieces, similar to Slash b Slash-focused melee weapons. This makes the Lato Vandal a prime candidate for a 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.
