Considering it is a sniper rifle, the Lanka is best used at a long distance but can still be fired at closer ranges. With its high critical and status chance there are many possible builds for its and making use of its base damage being Electricity can prove useful for taking on certain enemies.
Below are a few sample builds:
Elemental Critical Build
Since the Lanka only has elemental damage, it can only use elemental mods to increase its base damage and with this build it uses 2 elemental mods.
This is to modify its base Electricity damage to gain a stronger combined one.
Point Strike is equipped to add a higher critical chance along with Vital Sense and Hammer Shot for a higher critical multiplier.
As with majority of primary builds Serration and Heavy Caliber are added to furthermore increase its overall damage.
This build is suitable for dealing high amounts of damage based on critical hits and extra elemental damage done to certain types of enemies.
Additionally, the elemental damage mods may be substituted with elemental damage and status mods if the users prefer a mix of status chance with the build.
Elemental Rapid Fire Build
This build is similar to the previous one with the exception of swapping out a few mods for Speed Trigger, Vigilante Fervor and Shred to increase overall the overall rate of fire.
The elemental mods may be swapped out for others to change the elemental combination.
With this build the user has the capability of taking out multiple enemies with quick succession although it might be less sufficient if they are not that accurate with their shots.
Similar to the Elemental Critical Build, this build only varies by having Hammer Shot swapped with Prime Cryo Rounds or the ordinary Cryo Rounds mods.
This is beneficial as both Radiation and Cold damage deal extra damage to the Teralyst.
With this build the user can take down Teralysts with ease as it will only take a few shots to destroy the Teralyst Synovia also known as its weakspots.
Certain Warframes can use specific abilities along with this build to destroy parts with a single shot.
These are not the only builds available for the Lanka, but they are pretty useful in many situations.
There are tons of ways to mod this weapon and it all can vary depending on the user and their choice of mods.
The Lanka is one of the most underestimated sniper rifles in the game due to its charge up speed and its looks.
Users will be surprised when they unlock its full potential through adding mods and using the right Warframe with it.
Not only is the Lanka capable of tremendous damage but it can be quite situational for different enemies including most of the bosses.
One shot is all it takes most of the time when it comes to the Lanka and a lot of enemies will barely withstand its power.
