To build the Archwing Launcher, players must first install the Archwing Launcher Segment into the Foundry, which will add the reusable Archwing Launcher blueprint to the Foundry under the "Gear" tab. The Archwing Launcher Segment blueprint can be researched from the Tenno Lab in a Clan Dojo for Credits64.png 15,000. Players can also buy the Archwing Launcher segment directly off the Market for Platinum64.png 175.


Archwing Launchers can be equipped in a player's Gear menu, and can be used in Landscapes (Plains of Eidolon, Orb Vallis, and Cambion Drift). When activated, the player will immediately auto-equip their Archwing. Players can use the Archwing launcher even while in mid-air. It has infinite uses.


  • Prior to Update 23.10 (2018-10-12), the Archwing Launcher had limited uses, but a blueprint could produce 50 launchers.
  • Prior to Update 28.0 (2020-06-11), the blueprint required the player to be Mastery Rank 5 to unlock.
