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 infinite ammo, but locks out the Alternate Fire.


  • This weapon deals primarily DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage.
  • Primary Fire shoots fully automatic rounds.
    • Headshot kills with primary fire trigger the Overdrive buff, increasing fire rate by 100% and Ammo Efficiency by 100% for 8 seconds.
      • Overdrive buff increases recoil and disables Alternate Fire for its duration, and cannot be refreshed.
  • Alternate Fire shoots a cone of energy, ejecting all remaining ammunition in the magazine in a quick burst.
  • Innate Madurai Pol.svg polarity.



  • Alternate Fire has a limited range of 12 meters.
  • Alternate Fire consumes 1 ammo per damage tick instead of 0.5, unlike most other continuous weapons.
  • Extremely low ammo capacity; requires just 2 reloads to fully deplete all ammo reserves.
  • Normal Attack
    • Below average effective fire rate
    • Very low max ammo
    • Low reload speed
    • Very low status chance
    • Low disposition
  • Alt-Fire
    • Low max ammo
    • Low disposition


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 Abandoned Derelict Caches in Empyrean missions. All parts can be traded between players.

Item Source Chance Expected Nearly Guaranteed

All drop rates data is obtained from DE's official drop tables. See Mission Rewards#Standard Missions for definitions on reward table rotations. Drop chances are rounded to two decimal places, following the official drop tables repository.
Expected means a player can expect to obtain at least one of a drop every N attempts on average.
Nearly Guaranteed refers to the total number of attempts a player needs to obtain a 1 in 10^2,3, and 4 probability not to have recieved a single drop (99%, 99.9%, and 99.99% probability to have received at least one drop).
The combined probability of multiple drops is 1 - ((1-A%) * (1-B%) * ...) (add drops in same rotation)

  • Overdrive buff grants 100% increased fire rate and allows it to consume no ammo while firing, but increases recoil and disables the Alternate Fire feature. The buff lasts for 8 seconds.
  • The Alternate Fire ejects all of the remaining ammunition in the magazine in a single burst.
    • Because of this fact, increasing the magazine size of the weapon such as with Mod TT 20px.png Slip Magazine and using recoil reduction mods like Mod TT 20px.png Steady Hands can help to make its damage output more consistent and reliable.
    • Alternate Fire can be interrupted (preserving the ammunition left in the magazine) by rolling or quick melee.
    • Alternate Fire will not function under the effects of any ammo efficiency or infinite ammo buff (Energized Munitions Overdrive, Arcane Pistoleer, Reactant Buff), instead firing a single round.
