Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • The Telos Akbolto has an innate Truth effect identical to that found in Arbiters of Hexis Weapon Augment Mods. Upon accumulating sufficient affinity, the Telos Akbolto will release an AoE radial blast that deals 1000 Gas b Gas damage and applies the corresponding proc to enemies within range. It also instantly restores 25% of the player's max Health and boosts all 3 Parkour Maneuvers (Wall Latch and Aim Glide durations, as well as Bullet Jump velocity) by 25% for 30 seconds.
  • The Telos Akbolto, as well as the Bolto and Akbolto, are no longer SILENT as of the bug fixes in Hotfix: Specters of the Rail 2.2.


  • Focused on Puncture b Puncture damage, therefore effective against armored enemies like the Grineer and most Corrupted.
  • For effective use of non-hitscan weapons, it is strongly recommended to learn leading. In short, leading means aiming ahead of your target so the projectile hits them at their predicted location.
  • Moderate recoil makes fast subsequent shots more difficult to land when fire rate mods are used.
  • Using the Pistol Ammo Mutation mod can help regain lost ammo when needed.
  • With a decently leveled Magnum Force and fully leveled multishot mods such as Barrel Diffusion and Lethal Torrent these pistols visibly fire 2-3 bolts per shot. When used over a longer range this results in the Telos Akbolto having the effective use of "spray and pray" weapons whilst retaining respectable damage output and ammo economy.
  • The bolts spawn as physical objects at the muzzle of the Telos Akbolto.
    • If an enemy is standing right in front of you, so that the muzzle is inside of them, you will sometimes not be able to hit, because the Telos Akbolto is non-hitscan and pretty long, so the bolts spawn behind the hitbox of that enemy.
    • Also if taking cover behind a thick object (i.e. door case) you will not be able to shoot anything but the wall in front you if the muzzle is inside of that object.
  • The innate Vazarin Pol polarity can somewhat limit elemental modding potential, thus making it a less desirable polarity for elemental modding. If you wish to focus more on elemental damage, then it is recommended to either ignore the polarity or use Forma to turn it into a more suitable polarity.
    • However, its moderately high status chance alongside the high fire rate can be useful in inflicting cold procs with Deep Freeze.
  • A great way to work with the semi-automatic problem could be to also bind your fire button to mouse wheel up or mouse wheel down.


  • The word telos means an ultimate end or goal, derived from Greek teleology, essentially the study of purpose.
  • The Telos Akbolto was the first item to hold the "Telos" prefix. The Telos Syandana was second.
