Genji looses three deadly throwing stars in quick succession. Alternatively, he can throw three shuriken in a wider spread.
Primary Fire Key: (PC LMB, PS R2, XB RT)
Secondary Fire Key: (PC RMB, PS L2, XB LT)

Details Edit

Genji's primary fire flings shurikens in quick bursts of three with no spread. His secondary fire will fling three shurikens at the same time with a horizontal spread. One shuriken flies straight, towhere his crosshair is pointing; the other two fly to the left and right, making a 30-degree angle comparing with the middle shuriken. Because three shurikens are always fired each time with either primary or secondary attacks from an ammunition of 24, 8 possible shots can be used before reloading. Genji can fire while jumping (and double-jumping), but he is unable to use it while wall climbing.

Trivia Edit

  • Genji's shurikens are capable of puncturing most light armor. They are stored and deployed from his cybernetic arm.[1]
