The JKE-X2 Kenshin (Japanese: 謙信) is a Tech Pistol manufactured by Arasaka in Cyberpunk 2077.

Characteristics[]

Designed specifically for Arasaka operators, the Kenshin is a small, compact pistol based on Arasaka's trusted weapon platform, maximizing conceal-ability and reducing interference with holstering.[1] The weapon has been outfitted with a Tech mechanism, that due to its electromagnetic rails allows for burst-firing projectiles at high velocity after charging, and allowing object penetration. The Kenshin's magazine has a capacity of 20 rounds.

However, due to the addition of the Tech firing mechanism, it is not possible to install a Muzzle attachment, but it is possible to attach a small Scope.

Database Entry[]

Arasaka JKE-X2 Kenshin

ARASAKA JKE-X2 KENSHIN

This simple, unpretentious pistol is the pride and joy of Arasaka engineers. Kenshin is one of the most cutting-edge – and deadliest – machine pistols available on the market.

HARNESS THE POWER OF LIGHTNING

The Kenshin's brute power first comes from generating electromagnetic tension, before releasing a lethal, tungsten-tipped round that can penetrate the sturdiest armor. Like other guns of this class, it comes ready-equipped with a holographic scope.[2]

Behind the Scenes[]

Designed for Arasaka operators to be small, flat and easy to carry, the Kenshin has virtually no elements that extend beyond its basic outline that could potentially interfere with holstering, though parts on the top of the barrel do move violently when fired, making it visually impressive in action.[1]

Trivia[]

  • Like many Arasaka-manufactured weapons, the Kenshin is named after a Japanese warlord. In this case, it is Uesugi Kenshin.

Bugs[]

  • The default sight aims with the bottom of the triangular sight picture, instead of the tip of the triangle.
