The Carmine Penta is a special variant of the Penta grenade launcher, featuring a higher fire rate and doubled magazine size. This weapon is currently only obtainable in WARFRAME (China) through a rebate program after purchasing at least ¥1 worth of Platinum.


This weapon deals primarily Blast b Blast damage.

Advantages :


  • Innate Blast b Blast damage – less effective against Ferrite Armor.
  • Can only have five grenades out at once.
    • Multishot mod's extra projectiles count towards the limit of five live grenades.
  • Low critical chance.
  • Low status chance.
  • Low reload speed.
  • Grenades that have stopped moving have no obvious visual or audio cue (but with "PhysX" enabled they have some sparks when come to complete rest).
  • Grenades have slow travel time and heavy arcing.
  • Grenades have a high bouncing capability which makes it hard to stack on a desired spot.
    • This can be countered with the Adhesive Blast mod which will make the grenades stick to any surface.
    • Can bounce off (stick to with Adhesive Blast) teammates or companions, potentially having lethal results.
  • Low maximum ammo capacity.
  • Draws from the rare sniper ammo pool.
  • Grenades deal self-damage if they explode too close to the player, injuring or potentially killing the player if they're not careful with their shots.
