The Scindo is a heavy war axe crafted by the Tenno. Reduced speed and agility is balanced by heavy, devastating strikes capable of connecting with multiple targets at once.
The Scindo is a war axe of the heavy blade category, boasting medium-range damage in its class and the slowest attack speed, as well as lower status rate and critical hit and chance. However, the Scindo is compatible with the
Manticore skin, sacrificing speed for higher damage.
