Characteristics

This weapon does Slash b Slash damage and strikes in a wide arc, hitting multiple enemies.

Advantages

  • Long range attacks with a wide radius.
  • Hits up to 5 targets with AoE attacks.
  • Slide attacks have 100 damage and almost full AoE.
  • Large jump attack AoE.
  • Stance slot has Bar polarity, matches Bleeding Willow stance.

Disadvantages

  • Normal attacks have awkwardly placed swing hitboxes which vary with each swing animation, making it more difficult to hit enemies.

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.

Notes

  • The Orthos will extend slightly when drawn, and retract back after "sheathing".

Tips

  • Being one of the longest melee weapons (after Orthos Prime), the Orthos benefits greatly from Reach - a maxed out Reach will allow you to hit enemies through walls, bypass Grineer Shield Lancer's shields, and strike Toxic Ancients without touching the poison cloud.
    • The total slash length of this weapon with a maxed Reach is 3.6 meter, as wide as approximately four Grineer/Corpus units standing in a line.
  • Combines with Ash's maxed Smoke Screen or Loki's Invisibility  for devastating attacks.

Trivia

  • In Greek mythology, Orthos (also known as Orthrus) is the name of a two headed dog, brother of Cerberus.
  • Ortho- is a prefix in Greek which meant "straight," “upright,” “right,” or “correct”.
