Confusion About Lanka


Fl4m3Ph03n1x

Question

So, the way I see it Lanka has been changed back and forward recently, to the point where I no longer no what it does. So I have a couple of questions:

 

1 - Does Lanka still have armor ignore damage? (after changes in 9.6?)

2 - Some people say that Lanka does not crit (

) but Wiki says it has (http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Lanka). I am confused. Will Point Strike (http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Point_Strike), Vital Sense (http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Vital_Sense) or Hammer Shot (http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Hammer_Shot) affect Lanka's critical ability when i fire the charged shots?

 

Also, if anyone could confirm with a source, I would really appreciate.

The lanka can crit (20% base chance at that), does ignore armor, and actually does triple damage to light infested.

Source? My personal 5x polarized Lanka.

The only thing that has changed on the Lanka since the initial buff is the fact that object pierce now works with it. Anyone who says otherwise has no idea what they are talking about.

My Lanka perfectly crits and ignores armour.

Here's some proof,

Later on, I scored a 25k+ yellow crit on a Leaper, actually, multiple times.

Source is my own experience of using the Lanka (I also added 5 Forma into this weapon) as well as other players' experiences. I don't trust the Wiki beyond being a quick reference to concepts:

 

1) Yes, it still has Serrated Blade damage, which is an armor ignoring damage type.

 

2) The Lanka deals critical shots, and you can only fire charged shots. With a maxed Point Strike, Hammer Shot, and Vital Sense, you will have a 50% chance to deal 420% critical damage. However, shields have 100% critical resistance, no armor, and a +100% damage multiplier (i.e. takes twice more damage) from ice. Hammer Shot has quite some nice benefits (more critical damage, but the higher stun chance is useless because Serrated Blade damage has innate stun), but the Bane of X mods can replace Hammer Shot and actually deal more damage against one specific faction.

Thanks for the reviews guys!!

Also, does split chamber also work? In youtube I never saw the projectile being emitted more than once :S

 

Split Chamber works, and gives the Lanka pseudo-penetration thanks to the properties of Serrated Blade damage (innate/100% stun and splitting enemy bodies apart). Due to such properties, you can kill two enemies in one "shot".
