A high status can result in an excellent crowd control weapon, depending on the elemental build. Radiation can result in a similar but less effective version of Nyx'sChaos.
Although reloading seems long, the weapon can be fired in the middle of the reloading process to interrupt it when the need arises. The reloading can then be resumed based on how many rounds there are left in the clip.
When the Strun Wraith was first released, it had a critical chance of 50%, making it the weapon with the highest critical chance (prior to the release of the Synapse). This was unintended and was changed in a hotfix a few hours after release.
This weapon was a reward for surviving at least 20 minutes during the Survival Weekend Event in a single round.
The Strun Wraith is the first Wraith Tenno weapon.
The Strun Wraith is the first Wraith weapon to be re-released.
When modded for +150% or more status chance (3 dual-stat elemental damage mods), one can reach a status chance of 100%.
As with all Wraith weapons, only the energy color can be changed. Other colors may be selected, but will not show on the weapon.
