Artemis Bow
Summon a mighty bow and unleash a volley of devastating arrows.

Energy Drain Per Shot: 15

Strength:50 / 80 / 120 / 160 (damage)
Misc:3 / 4 / 6 / 7 (arrows)
1.5x (damage multiplier)

  • Ivara wields her exalted bow as her primary weapon, allowing her to fire a spread of 3 / 4 / 6 / 7 arrows fanning in a vertical orientation. Each arrow inflicts 50 / 80 / 120 / 160 damage which is further increased by a 1.5x damage multiplier.
    • Damage distribution is 14% Impact b Impact, 80% Puncture b Puncture, and 6% Slash b Slash.
    • Holding down the fire button will gradually reorient the spread to fan horizontally upon release.
    • Each arrow has 200% critical damage, 25% critical chance, and 20% status chance.
    • Number of arrows and the damage multiplier are not affected by Ability Strength.
  • Damage is affected by Ability Strength, most mods, and buffs.
  • Charged attacks will only reorient Artemis Bow's arrow spread and will confer no changes to projectile flight speed or damage. Charging speed is affected by fire rate mods.
  • Arrows kills will push back and continue to travel, carrying the enemy's body and nailing them to the surface behind them.
  • Artemis Bow is affected by and can trigger Warframe Arcanes.
  • While Artemis Bow is active, each shot will consume 15 energy. Artemis Bow will end if Ivara's energy falls below the energy cost per shot or if deactivated by pressing the ability key again.
  • Melee attacks can not be used while Artemis Bow is active.
  • Using the secondary fire button will make Artemis Bow instantly fire the currently equipped arrow type from Quiver. If used to fire arrows from Quiver, Artemis Bow will only shoot a single arrow, and each arrow will use Quiver's energy cost.
    • Using Quiver with the alternate fire method won't count as using an ability.
  • Artemis Bow's arrows can be controlled by Navigator. Only one of the arrows fired will be selected at random for manual control.
  • Artemis Bow's arrows can damage enemies across the Rift Plane.

The Artemis Bow is Ivara's signature Exalted Weapon, which can only be used upon activating the ability of the same name. It fires seven arrows at once in a vertical spread, which can be reoriented into a horizontal spread by holding down the fire button.

Main article: Concentrated Arrow

Concentrated Arrow is a Warframe Augment Mod for Ivara's Artemis Bow that replaces Artemis Bow (Weapon)'s multiple projectiles with a single arrow. On headshots, the arrow has added critical chance and explodes. The single arrow is incapable of utilising punch through.

Rank Added Critical Chance on Headshots Explosion Radius Cost
0 20% 7m 6
1 30% 7m 7
2 40% 7m 8
3 50% 7m 9

Tips & Tricks
  • With the majority of Grineer and Corpus enemies being humanoids that stand upright, firing the Artemis Bow uncharged to fire the spread vertically will allow it to deal the maximum amount of damage possible by ensuring all of the Artemis Bow's shots hit against them. In addition, this also has a high chance of dealing headshots, further enhancing the potential damage.
    • Due to the spreading nature of the shot, the Artemis Bow deals more damage at close range if used akin to a shotgun, which is useful for dealing massive damage to heavy units like Techs and Bombards.
  • Firing fully-charged horizontal spreads is ideal for taking out multiple enemies in clustered groups, or fast moving enemies.
  • Reflex Guard works while Artemis Bow is active.
