Alad V has married countless generations of Sentient evolution with the most advanced Corpus technology to create a brutal, persistent fighter. Wields a plasma assault rifle and carries an Amalgam Osprey into battle.

The Amalgam Machinist is a Corpus Amalgam hybridized with Sentient technology. Armed with a Cyanex Cyanex, it can deploy healing auras and launch Amalgam Ospreys into battle.


  • They primarily attack using their Cyanex Cyanex that shoots projectiles that home onto the player. They will only shoot when the player is within line-of-sight.
  • Their shields do not regenerate naturally. Once their shields are down, they will occasionally kneel down and release four blue energy pulses with a 16m radius that drain the shields of nearby Warframes. This also regenerates their shields back to full capacity.
  • When damaged, they will deploy an Amalgam Osprey on their back.

Damage ResistanceEdit

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

$ (\text{modded damage})\cdot(\text{modded fire rate})\cdot(\text{modded multishot})\cdot(\text{body part multipiers}) $

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

For damage to shields, the following is used:

$ { \text{Damage Modifier} = \begin{cases} 0.5,\; & \text{DPS}_{Average} \leq 2000 \\ 0.4 + \frac{200}{\text{DPS}_{Average}},\; & 2000 < \text{DPS}_{Average} \leq 12000 \\ 0.35 + \frac{800}{\text{DPS}_{Average}},\; & 12000 < \text{Average DPS} \leq 20000 \\ 0.25 + \frac{2800}{\text{DPS}_{Average}},\; & 20000 < \text{Average DPS} \leq 60000 \\ 0.1 + \frac{11800}{\text{DPS}_{Average}},\; & 60000 < \text{Average DPS} \end{cases} } $

For damage to health, the following is used:

$ { \text{Damage Modifier} = \begin{cases} 1,\; & \text{DPS}_{Average} \leq 1000 \\ 0.8 + \frac{200}{\text{DPS}_{Average}},\; & 1000 < \text{DPS}_{Average} \leq 6000 \\ 0.7 + \frac{800}{\text{DPS}_{Average}},\; & 6000 < \text{Average DPS} \leq 10000 \\ 0.5 + \frac{2800}{\text{DPS}_{Average}},\; & 10000 < \text{Average DPS} \leq 30000 \\ 0.2 + \frac{11800}{\text{DPS}_{Average}},\; & 30000 < \text{Average DPS} \end{cases} } $ Proc Damage uses the same formulas where average DPS is defined as :

$ \textbf{DPS}_{Proc} = (\text{proc damage}) \cdot (\text{critical multiplier if triggered}) \cdot (\text{modded fire rate}) \cdot (\text{modded multishot}) $
