Reverse-engineered from propulsion tech to pack a serious kick. Headshot kills trigger Overdrive, locking off secondary functions while maximizing your fire rate and ammo efficiency for a short time.

Athodai is a Tenno hand-cannon that shoots long-ranged laser beams, with an Alternate Fire function that discharges all ammo to burst-fire in a short-ranged cone. Headshot kills with the primary fire increase the weapon's fire rate and grant unlimited ammo, but locks out the Alternate Fire.


This weapon deals primarily Heat DamageDmgHeatSmall64.png Heat damage.




Athodai was acquired by watching TennoCon 2020 on WARFRAME's Twitch with a Twitch-linked account for 30 consecutive minutes, between 12:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. ET, on August 1st, 2020. It comes with a free weapon slot and pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.

  • Due to thousands of players reporting missing Twitch drops, on August 6th, 2020 Athodai was distributed to all players if they were logged in to WARFRAME during TennoCon 2020, regardless if they watched the streams or not.[1] This resulted in some players receiving two Athodai.

Athodai's blueprint and components are now available in Venus Proxima Orokin Shield Derelict Caches in Empyrean missions. All parts can be traded between players.
