As an alternative to Kunai, these Tenno throwing stars do less damage but they come with expanded ammo capacity and a higher rate of fire.

The Hikou is a throwing weapon for the secondary slot, released in 9. It has a lower base damage than the Kunai and Despair, but a higher fire rate and base magazine size. Like its counterparts, it can also be hard to aim with because of its arrow-like arc projection.

This weapon can be sold for 5.000 Credits64; it is also a material requisito for the Panthera.

Configuraciones para el arma

Tips

  • Make sure to adjust your aim for moving targets.
  • When using at a distance aim above the enemy to adjust for Hikou's arc.
  • Using the Pistol Ammo Mutation mod can help regain lost ammo when needed.

Notes

  • The Hikou can ricochet (rarely) off surfaces, as floors and walls. Ricocheted shots can damage and kill whoever gets in the way.
  • The Hikou are quite similar to the Kunai, the main difference being about half the damage for twice the fire rate. Regarding this, Hikou are slightly superior, dealing 5 more damage per two thrown, which would equal 1 Kunai in terms for rate of fire. In other words, the Hikou trades a slight DPS upgrade for ammo economy when compared to the Kunai.
  • The Hikou can pass through Electric Shield.

Bugs

  • As with all thrown sidearms, when performing a Jump Kick your frame will hold the Hikou as dual pistols. Upon hitting the ground and sliding, this will quickly switch back to as it should be.

Trivia

  • Hikou (Hikō or 飛行 ) in Japanese means "flight."
  • The Hikou are based off the Japanese throwing stars from ninjutsu tradition. Throwing stars were primarily used as distractions, and were often called the "invisible blades" due to a thrown star being able to cut enemies unseen from any direction.
  • The Hikou are the first throwing weapon secondary to receive a prime variant.
  • The Hikou share at least two common traits with the Kunai and Despair, all three are secondary throwing type weapons, and all weapons have a damage focus mainly on Puncture damage.
