Note: Was available to NSO upon completion of the Master Sidearms directive, pre _Integration update.

The NSX Yawara is a pistol produced by Nanite Systems, available to all factions. It is unlocked through purchase using A7 from the Black Market on Sanctuary.

The Nanite Systems Export Yawara is a variant of the NS-45 Pilot, sharing some of the same base stats. Though it inherits the same highly lethal damage model of the Pilot, the Yawara trades in the quick bursts for a slow fully-automatic firing mode instead.

Compared to the Pilot, the Yawara can fire fully-automatic, though the gun fires every 180ms, as opposed to the Pilot which fires every 80ms during each burst with a 250ms delay between them. Besides these differences, the two pistols are identical.

Trivia[]

  • The NSX Yawara is named after a small fist-weapon invented in feudal Japan—a yawara.
  • Pre _Integration update, NSX-A Yawara was a sidearm available to Nanite Systems Operatives. It was unlocked upon completion of the Master Sidearms directive. It's no longer acquirable.

History[]

  • April 25, 2019 Update (A New Soldier)
    • NSX-A Yawara added to the game.
  • July 1, 2021 Update (_Integration)
    • NSO has also received new Directive Weapons available in all-new weapon directive trees, as well as rocket launcher offerings. Previous NSX-A weaponry will remain as legacy items for pre-existing NSO characters that were able to unlock them, and new non-auraxium NSX versions of these weapons have made their way to the Black Market.
    • NSX Yawara added to the game.
