Genji looses three deadly throwing stars in quick succession. Alternatively, he can throw three shuriken in a wider spread.

✔ Primary fire can headshot, ✔ secondary fire can headshot
Primary Fire Key: (Left Mouse, Right Trigger)
Secondary Fire Key: (Right Mouse, Left Trigger)

Details Edit

Genji's primary fire flings shurikens in quick bursts of three with no spread, useful for poking damage at far away targets.

Secondary fire will fling three shurikens at the same time with a horizontal spread. This is less accurate, as only one shuriken will fly straight, but can be done faster at 4 bursts over 3 seconds, making it more effective at closer ranges.

Trivia Edit

  • Genji's shurikens are capable of puncturing most light armor. They are stored and deployed from his cybernetic arm.[1]
  • You are unable to fire your Shurikens while wall climbing.
  • Because three shurikens are always fired each time with either attacks from the clip of 24, 8 possible shots can be used before reloading.
