Weapon Type Assault Rifle
Latron is high-accuracy, semi-automatic rifle. It features a moderate to low firing rate and magazine size which is offset by its high damage-to-bullet ratio and ammo conservation. As a result, the Latron excels at longer-ranged engagement, but falls short when faced with large crowds in close proximity. Additionally, the Latron's exceptional accuracy allows for easier weak-point shots.

Weapon Loadouts Edit
Its low base rate of fire and magazine size makes it somewhat less desirable than other rifles against the Infested unless a high-rank Punch Through mod is installed.
The Latron is very accurate; it can be compared to sniper rifles while being ideal for close or medium range.
The Latron is noticeably quiet compared to other rifles, capable of being fired without alerting enemies within the same tile.
Before , it was available for purchase through the market for Update 7.11 Credits, priced at 50,000.
Latron used to be a Braton in the closed beta, until both became completely separate weapons.
The actual barrel of the Latron appears to be the very thin cylinder on top of the front end of the rifle. If this is the case, the rifle's barrel is extremely short.
It seems Latron is fittingly the Primary counterpart of Lato, as the naming aspect relies on adding letters "r" and "n" into the said weapon to become such.
In addition, both are engraved with similar symbols on their respective barrels.
The Latron is most likely classifiable as a designated marksman rifle (DMR) or a carbine.
As of , the Latron is the first weapon to posses both Prime and Wraith variants.
Update 14.5 Clem uses this weapon before he gets his custom Twin Grakatas in the quest A Man of Few Words, referencing the fan-made comic.
