The full realization of the grotesque partnership between Alad V and the Sentients. This unit can upgrade organic allies by capturing them and birthing neuro-carnivorous memes directly into their brain stems, thereby super-charging their fighting capacity and resilience.

The Amalgam Alkonost is a Corpus Amalgam. Fully converted into a Sentient, this unit can latch onto their organic allies and inject enhancers directly into their brain, boosting their offense and defense prowess.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Alkonosts can enhance nearly any humanoid Corpus unit, including those that it would never encounter within the Gas City. Enhanced units will fully regain all their health and shields after the injection, and gain drastically improved movement speed and greatly increased damage resistance. They also manifest a blue aura, and if their helmets are shot off, it will reveal that their facial skin is melted, which exposes their red fleshy muscles. Alkonosts are also immune to status effects and certain Warframe abilities.

Eligible targets are listed below. Anything italicized refers to targets Alkonosts cannot encounter in regular gameplay:

Damage Resistance[edit | edit source]

Amalgam Alkonosts possess DR that scales depending on your weapon's DPS excluding critical hits. DPS is calculated by

Critical Hits are applied after DR is calculated. Additionally, the average DPS is calculated using all health/shield modifiers and is quantized.

Proc Damage uses the same formulas where average DPS is defined as :

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A Mind Controlled Alkonost will not attempt to upgrade anyone, and simply fire at its enemies.
    • A captured and upgraded Corpus can also be Mind Controlled, giving you a stronger unit. However they will often choose to take cover more than engage enemies.
  • It is possible for Amalgam Alkonosts to spawn as Eximus units, albeit very rarely due to their already rare spawn rate in most missions.
    • These forms include Energy Leech Eximus, Guardian Eximus and Blitz Eximus.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • At the end of each 5 defense waves on Jupiter, Amalgam Eximus units are guaranteed to spawn giving a easy way to encounter them for their scans

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Alkonost is the name of a mythological creature of Slavic folklore, a woman-headed bird, similar to the Sirens of Greek mythology.
  • While almost entirely converted into a sentient form it still retains some of the original host used for conversion, shown by a single Crewman helmet (whether it includes a head or not is unknown) at the very top of the creature, and the host's gloves.
  • Alkonosts can be seen in various pools in the Sentient Ship tileset.
