Not to be confused with the Avionics component for Landing Craft. Strictly meant for Railjack.

Avionics comprise the modular subsystem components of a Railjack, analogous to Mods for Warframes or weapons. In-game, they appear as pickups surrounded by a yellow aura.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Avionic Grid that is over Avionics Capacity. Notice how Avionics that are over capacity are locked from use.

Avionics can be installed into the Railjack's 15 Grid Sockets: 9 Integrated, 3 Tactical, and 3 Battle. Integrated, Tactical, and Battle Avionics can only be installed into their respective slots, with the additional requirement that Battle Avionics each have a specific Battle Grid Socket into which they must be installed (for example, Seeker Volley, a slot three Battle Avionic, can only be installed into the third Battle Grid Socket).

The Railjack has a limited Avionics Capacity, which can be increased by the Railjack's Reactor. Each installed Avionic will reduce the Railjack's available Capacity by its Drain value. If an Avionic's Drain exceeds the current available capacity, it cannot be installed without first removing another Avionic or installing a Reactor with more Avionics Capacity. Also, just like Mods, the same Avionic cannot be installed twice regardless of its rarity.

Currently, all available Avionics can be traded amongst players.

Dirac[edit | edit source]

Main article: Dirac

Avionics can be upgraded with Dirac64.png Dirac to increase their potency, also increasing their Avionics Capacity Drain. Any given Avionic can be upgraded a maximum of one, four, or seven times. The upgrade process expends Dirac64.png Dirac, but does not cost credits.

From Rank 0 30 90 210 450 930 1890 3810

Additionally, Grid Sockets can be upgraded up to three times each, further increasing the potency of any Avionic slotted into them by one level per upgrade without incurring any additional drain for the slotted Avionic. Upgrading Grid Sockets expends successively more Dirac64.png Dirac each time: first 200, then 600, then 1800 Dirac for a total of 2600 per Grid Socket.

Spare Avionics can be scrapped to gain Dirac64.png Dirac. The amount received depends on the rank and rarity of the scrapped avionic. Scrapping ranked Avionics refund 75% of the invested Dirac plus the base scrapping Dirac.

Integrated Avionics[edit | edit source]

These modules provide a passive bonus to the stats of the Railjack. Each Sigma Railjack comes with three unique "starter" Integrated Avionics (Houseless versions of HouseVidar.png Hyperstrike, HouseVidar.png Bulkhead, and HouseVidar.png Hull Weave) pre-installed.

These modules provide special abilities that can be deployed through the tactical map screen.

Battle Avionics[edit | edit source]

These modules provide powerful abilities that are used similarly to Warframe abilities. Unlike Tactical and Integrated avionics, however, they cannot be slotted freely into any of the available slots. Each Battle Avionic fits into a specific one of the three available spots and no others, and will not show up in as an option in the other two.

Activating any Battle Avionic consumes Flux Energy that can be produced in Railjack Payload & Resource Forge.

Patch History[edit | edit source]

Update 28.0

  • Scrapping ranked Avionics refund more of the invested Dirac (75% just like Mods).

Update 27.4

Avionics Changes:

When it comes to Avionics changes, there’s an overarching goal: Simplify Avionic management.

  • Each Integrated Avionic Type will now only exist with a single Manufacturer rather than three Manufacturer flavors. What this means is that there won’t be 3x variants of the same Avionic.
  • Consolidated Avionics have had their Avionic Capacity Drain altered so that on average the Integrated Avionics now consume 20% less. This ensures players can more comfortably fit the builds they want in the new consolidated system based on Feedback from the Public Test Cluster.
  • The ‘retired’ Integrated Avionics will be removed from players inventory via a script on login.
  • The remaining Integrated Avionic for each Type will take on the values of the previously highest valued Avionic of its Type.
  • ALL Dirac used to upgrade Integrated Avionics will be refunded. This applies to both retired and remaining Avionics.
  • ALL remaining Integrated Avionics will have their Upgrades drained.
  • Added ‘Incomplete’ tab/category to the Avionics screen in the ‘Configure Railjack’ panel, Mods Segment screen, and the Codex.
    • Avionics, Mods, and Arcanes that are not owned are marked as ‘preview’ in this category and those that you own but have not ranked to Max are also in this category.
  • You can now Chat Link Avionics!

Hotfix 27.0.11

  • Changed base Avionics so they all have at least one rank to address difficulty knowing which ones you can scrap and which ones you can't, due to the ‘no ranks’ Avionics stacking with all other unrankeds:
    • Lavan Ablative Shell
    • Lavan Heat Sink
    • Lavan Last Stand
    • Lavan Thermatic
    • Lavan Phasic Weave
    • Lavan Predator
    • Lavan Winged Force
    • Lavan Winged Steel
    • Vidar Last Stand
  • To accomodate for the base Avionic change above, other Avionics have been changed:
    • Vidar Predator: Higher base stat and higher drain
    • Vidar Winged Steel: Lower drain
    • Vidar Winged Force: Lower drain
  • Increased the Range of Winged Cyclone, Winged Force, Winged Steel, and Winged Storm to 1000m.
    • This also fixes these Archwing based Avionics for Railjack also affecting the Railjack itself.
  • Toned down the FX for both the Particle Ram and Fiery Phoenix Battle Avionic when aboard the Railjack.
    • This change is being made due to plenty of feedback requesting less visibility-inhibiting FX.

Hotfix 27.0.6

  • You can now trade Avionics in your Dojo or Maroo’s Bazaar!

Update 27.0

  • Introduced.
