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 meters, 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.
In Greek mythology, Orthos (also known as Orthrus) is the name of a two headed dog, brother of Cerberus.
