  • Primary fire is a fully automatic 2-round burst rifle.
    • Kills with primary fire stacks charges up to 3 times, increasing the damage of Alternate Fire.
  • Alternate Fire fires a powerful beam.

  • Primary fire accumulates up to 3 charges when killing enemies, allowing the Alternate Fire to unleash an Opticor.png Opticor-like beam that can pierce and hit multiple enemies. This also causes an explosion with the first surface or enemy impact, inflicting the same damage as the beam itself. All charges are used up when the beam fires.
    • Initial hit and explosion apply status separately.
    • Charges can only be gained through kills made by the primary fire, or damage from status effects caused by the primary fire.
    • Shots explode in a 3.4 meter radius on impact with an enemy.
    • Shots explode in a 6 meter radius on impact with a surface.
      • Explosion does not need direct line of sight to deal damage and will penetrate walls.
      • Explosion has linear damage falloff from 100% to 60% from central impact.
    • Beam has a width of 0.5 meters.
    • Charge is automatic and does not need to be held down.
    • Damage multiplier of the charges is equal to the amount of charges stored (e.g. 3 charges does 3x damage).
    • Alt-fire cannot be used without any charges.
    • Charge status is indicated by a quintet of horizontal bars on the right side of the crosshairs.
    • Charge can be cancelled by pressing the alternate fire button again.


  • The Battacor is the first non-Archwing weapon in-game to use the Auto Burst trigger, with the Cyngas being the first overall.
  • A Battacor can be seen being tested in a Corpus firing range in the Enrichment Labs area of Orb Vallis, where Conculysts are also being researched on.
  • Though Battacor is a primary firearm, there is a ring that looks similar to Jai Link attached to it. This aesthetic is shared with Ocucor.png Ocucor.
  • The Battacor's name, like the Ocucor, seems to be a portmanteau, incorporating Battalyst (a Sentient enemy) and the suffix -cor, seen in some other Corpus weapons. Also in line with the Ocucor appearing to be a modified Amp prism, the Battacor appears to be a modified Battalyst arm.
  • A hologram of the Battacor can be seen in the Reworked Corpus Ship tileset in a room where a Solaris prisoner can sometimes be found.

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

Self Damage Changes

We are getting rid of Self Damage and replacing it with something else: instead of Self Damage, it’s now ‘Stagger’. This change completely removes the chance of killing yourself, and instead now creates scenarios where you will interrupt yourself - or ‘Stagger’ - to varying degrees if you aren’t careful.

The degrees of Self-Interrupt start with a small stumble all the way to full knockdown depending on how close you are to the center of explosion. Any Mods referring to Self Damage will be converted to acknowledge Stagger.

With this Self-Interrupt system, we have added dozens of new recovery animations that harness a ninja-like recovery experience. By pressing ‘Jump’ at the correct time, you can execute a ninja-skill-based knockdown recovery to ALL in-game knockdowns. This ninja recovery window is indicated by a glowing FX on your Warframe.

In addition to Self Damage being removed, some of the more powerful AOE weapons without Self Damage presently will have the Stagger added, but it should only be noticeable in cases of extreme inaccuracy on the player’s part. The Weapons include:

  • Battacor

In the original Dev Workshop, we said:
As a result of this overall systemic change, Weapons with Stagger will be getting approximately a 20% buff in Damage, with any weapons with AOE receiving a 50% Radial Damage Falloff from central impact.

This is no longer accurate after continued testing. What we are doing now is:

No damage buffs have been added, but any weapons with AOE are receiving ~20% increase in Radius. Additionally, AOE weapons are receiving a 90% Radial Damage Falloff from central impact. This means on the very outer section of the explosion Radius 10% of the Damage will be dealt. Tactics will be deadly - aim true, Tenno.

Why: Several players brought up the history of the Tonkor and we want to make sure we ship this change in a place that’s conservative in its starting point from a balance perspective. The complete removal of Self Damage does change the pace of destruction with some of the game’s most powerful weapons, so we want to make sure we can iterate upwardly instead of releasing a bonanza of explosions with no other choices.
