CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals primarily Blast b Blast damage.

Advantages:

Disadvantages:

  • Innate Blast b Blast damage – less effective against Ferrite Armor.
  • Grenades have travel time and heavy arcing.
  • Explosions can cause self-damage.
    • Grenades will instantly explode on hitting enemies, teammates or companions, potentially having lethal results.
  • Grenades that hit any surface have a high bouncing capability which makes it hard to stack on a desired spot.
    • This can be countered with the Adhesive Blast mod which will make the grenades stick to any surface.
  • Extremely small magazine size of just 2 rounds; requires frequent reloading.
  • Draws from the rare sniper ammo pool.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

NotesEdit

  • The Tonkor's grenades' self-damage will most likely kill the player in even a single explosion, including Inaros.
  • The Tonkor's grenades will explode immediately upon hitting an enemy.
    • The grenades will also explode upon touching the Cryopod in a Defense mission, damaging nearby enemies. Note that the Cryopod will also take fifty damage upon doing so.
    • If the grenade fails to hit a player or enemy, it will explode one second after the first bounce.
    • If Adhesive Blast is used, the grenades will stick to enemies until their fuse expires rather than immediately detonating.
  • The Tonkor will only hit an enemy with a direct hit if it hits the player model. This can result in the grenades bouncing between enemy legs.
  • Grenades will come to a complete stop when coming in contact with a body of water. This can turn them into makeshift proximity mines which will only explode when touched or after a few seconds.
  • Grenades created by Mirage's clones from Hall of Mirrors that are left over after the ability deactivates will cause damage to user if caught in the blast.
  • Grenades that impact enemies too close to the user will not detonate and will bounce off them harmlessly instead, possibly bouncing back and killing the player.

TipsEdit

  • Projectile Speed modifiers like Zephyr's Jet Stream or Terminal Velocity will help increase its launch speed significantly. Trajectory guide when zoomed will adjust with increased flight speed.
    • If the projectile speed is high enough, the grenade will explode on impact with any surface. In the case of a Jet Stream Zephyr, the minimum amount of Ability Strength percentage needed to achieve this effect given a particular percentage of Flight Speed is given by the formula:
      Ability Strength > 0.5 - Flight Speed Mods
      • It is encouraged to always add some margin on top of the required Ability Strength as gravity could slow down the grenade too much, preventing its explosion.
  • The Tonkor's self-damage property can be used to increase Vex Armor's buffs when using Chroma.
  • It is advised not to use punch through, as it can cause the Tonkor's projectiles to hit enemies without exploding. It also causes the projectiles to bounce/penetrate surfaces unpredictably.
  • Grenades will immediately explode when impacting the following surfaces, allowing instant high damage to enemies:

TriviaEdit

  • The Grineer text on the side of its barrel Grineer AGrineer NGrineer M translates to "ANM".
    • Previous design concepts show Grineer AGrineer LGrineer L ("ALL"). [1]
  • The Tonkor's breech-loading design is derived from the M79 grenade launcher, albeit with the ability to hold two rounds instead of one.
    • Oddly, the Tonkor's reload animation appears to consist of loading one grenade instead of two.
    • It seems that these "grenades" are actually power cells with a built-in launching mechanism.
  • Previously, the Tonkor was able to launch teammates into the air, and could even move them around while they were channeling stasis-related abilities (Mesa's Peacemaker, Nyx's Absorb, etc.). This was removed to discourage griefing and exploits.
