The Amalgam Alkonost is a Corpus Amalgam unit hybridized with Sentient technology. 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.
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:
- Almost all Crewmen (Normal, Detron, Elite, Nullifier, Prod, Sniper, Tech, Overtaker, Plasmor, Trencher) and their regional variants;
- Combas and Scrambuses;
- Orb Vallis Targets (Cestra Target, Sniper Target, Supra Target, Trencher Target);
- Heist Targets (Armaments Director, Sentient Research Director, Vivisect Director);
- Select Index brokers (Jad Teran, Pelna Cade, Ved Xol, Armis Ulta, Dru Pesfor, Rana Del); and
- Corrupted Nullifiers, which can spawn during Void Fissures, but not Corrupted Crewmen.
- A Mind Controlled Alkonost will not attempt to upgrade anyone, and simply fire at it's 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.
- These forms include Energy Leech Eximus, Guardian Eximus and Blitz Eximus.
- Alkonosts can be seen forming in the pools on the Sentient Ship Tileset.
- 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 corpus helmet (whether it includes a head or not is unknown) at the very top of the creature, and the left and right hands.
