- The Vaykor Marelok has an innate Justice effect identical to that found in Steel Meridian Weapon Augment Mods. Upon accumulating sufficient affinity, the Vaykor Marelok will release an AoE radial blast that deals Blast damage and staggers enemies for Finisher attacks, restores 25% of the Warframe's maximum Health, and temporarily buffs maximum Armor by 25% for 30 seconds.
- The innate 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, the high status chance can actually make the weapon proc very often, making Deep Freeze a very easy way to slow down enemies.
- The Vaykor Marelok is a great side arm for dealing with enemies at short to mid range for players who have a sniper rifle or bow for their primary weapon. Vaykor Marelok's firepower is strong enough to be considered a sub-primary weapon.
- When used with Pistol Pestilence, Jolt, Frostbite and Scorch mods, the Vaykor Marelok is capable of reaching 100% Status Chance.
- (As with the Marelok) In order to reach the full fire-rate, one must fire the next shot just before the "lever-action" animation is completed.
- Prior to update 15.13, you were unable to alter the cyan Energy color.
- When stolen by the Drahk Master, as with all Syndicate weapons it reverts to its original variants skin (The default Marelok) when left on the ground.
- The Vaykor Marelok skin returns once picked back up.
- Unlike the other five Syndicate weapons, the word 'vaykor' appears to not be a derivative word or have any meaning. Although, there is a possibility it is a Grineer corruption of the word "valor."
- The Vaykor Marelok was the first item to have the "Vaykor" prefix, with the Vaykor Syandana following second.
