NotesEdit

  • Braton Vandal and Lato Vandal were exclusive to the Closed Beta Testers.
    • In Devstream 77, game developers talked about possibly reintroducing both the Lato Vandal and Braton Vandal; and they made a poll, in which, most players were agree of them coming back.
      • Later on, with the inclusion of Sanctuary Onslaught in Update 22.18, these weapons were finally reintroduced into the game after over five years of its exclusivity. 
  • It was released on Update 7.
  • Used to be similar in performance to the Latron due to its rate of fire, accuracy, and damage prior to Damage 2.0.

TipsEdit

  • 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.
