CODEX Entry: Miter
The Miter launches high velocity saw blades, tearing apart anyone unfortunate enough to be in their path.
Miter is a saw blade launcher which is used by Grineer Eviscerators. The disc must be charged in order to deal maximum damage. However, weaker uncharged shots can be fired in rapid succession as well.

Very high status chance, can easily be pushed to 100% or beyond, causing each shot to proc a status.
Does not deal critical hits.
Requires a full charge to do most damage.
Ammo management can be troublesome if fired mostly uncharged.

Weapon Loadouts Edit
See the user build section for builds using this weapon.
A blade that has been shot can be found on the ground shortly after its third impact. After a few seconds it will disappear.
Any punch through added from mods affects uncharged and partially charged shots.
A fully charged round gains incredibly high Punch Through, making it effective against large groups, particularly Infested due to the high slashing damage.
This also makes it possible to hit a single enemy twice with one shot: shooting a charged round directly at an enemy in front of a wall will make the rebounded blade hit the enemy a second time.
Mods that affect fire rate also affect the charging time.
The Rifle Ammo Mutation mod (or the Sniper Ammo Mutation mod when the bug is fixed) is highly recommended as ammo can drain fast with normal attacks.
Although the Miter uses Sniper Ammo, a bug currently disallows the use of the Sniper Ammo Mutation mod and instead uses the Rifle Ammo Mutation mod, which strangely still functions properly.
Fully charged shots fired from the Miter do not have projectile width. Instead they behave like a bullet-sized projectile that bounces off the floor of the map. This means that often the player will see the saw blade visibly touch enemies, but not actually apply damage because the center of the blade didn't hit them. You'll be lucky to hit more than 2 or 3 infested with a single charged shot, even when they're packed together tightly.
Non-charged shots fired horizontally will hit weapon's own barrel and fizzle.
The Miter has a non-static model; its discs rotate inside the weapon during charging, although the effect is barely visible to the user due to position of the gun.
The Miter vaguely resembles the Ripper from the Unreal series, a game Digital Extremes co-developed.
A Miter saw is a type of power saw with a circular sawblade.
Written on the disc is the word "Cutface" in Grineer.
The Miter is often carried by Grineer Targets in a Capture mission.
