The Coildrive is a Corpus ground vehicle that can be found in the Orb Vallis. Serving as a combat capable transport, it can be found patrolling the roads, or lying inactive inside one of the Corpus' maintenance sheds.


  • Special Duty Coildrives, appearing only during bounty missions, have hackable consoles at the front of the wheels.
  • Whilst it is in movement, it is capable of killing fauna and destroying a player's K-Drive.
  • It currently has no Codex entry despite being scannable.


  • Coildrive is the first hostile ground vehicle introduced into the game, followed by Grineer Tusk Thumper.
  • Despite not being capable of flight, it still counts as a dropship for Riven Challenges that require players to kill enemies off of dropships.
