The Comba is a special Corpus infantry unit. Like the Scrambus, the Comba is capable of projecting an aura from their helmet that disrupts Warframe abilities. The nullification aura also disrupts the player's HUD.

A Comba's loadout is modular, and they can be equipped with one type of nullification aura combined with one type of weapon. There are four classes of nullification auras, and four weapons that Combas can equip, thus there are sixteen different possible combinations of loadouts possible for Combas, making them unpredictable in the field.

Behavior[]

Aura[]

Combas have access to 4 different nullification auras, each disrupting only a certain category of Warframe abilities. They will periodically hold their arms in front of them to charge up their helmets, releasing an expanding aura within a 15 meter radius that disables certain abilities for 2.5 seconds and does a fixed 50 DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage.. The helmet design changes depending on the aura equipped, allowing them to be identified visually.

Shooting the aura enough times or simply killing the Comba will cause the aura to disperse. Shooting off the Comba's helmet will also permanently prevent them from projecting an aura.

Weapons[]

Each Comba can be equipped with one of the following weapons in combination with any of the four different auras above:

  • Swarmer: Swarmer-type Combas are equipped with Detron.png Detrons, however their versions have a slower flight speed, can home in on targets, and deal DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage instead of DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation.
  • Seeker: These Combas are equipped with Angstrum.png Angstrum rocket launchers loaded with target-seeking missiles that deal DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage on impact. These rockets move slower and are fired in bursts of three to four.
  • Whip: Designed for close-quarters fighting, these Combas use Lecta.png Lecta electric whips.
  • Energy Shield: Primarily defensive in nature, these Combas can deploy elliptical energy shields in front of them that block all incoming attacks. They can be identified by the large emitters on their forearms. In a pinch, they will attack by swinging their emitters at nearby targets, dealing DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity damage.

Tips[]

  • The Comba's helmets emit a distinct pinging sound that can alert players to their position within 50 meters, giving ample warning as to their presence.
  • Since their nullification abilities are tied to their helmets, a Comba's nullification field can be disabled by shooting off their helmets.
  • The Combas (and their counterparts, the Scrambuses) may easily be found on medium to high-level Corpus controlled planets such as Europa, Neptune or Pluto.

Trivia[]

  • The Comba (along with their counterparts, the Scrambuses) are the first enemies in WARFRAME to have both male and female versions. They are also the first Corpus enemies to feature females.
  • Their design may have been inspired by Derf Anyo, an upcoming tag-along boss that will fight alongside Nef Anyo when the latter is added back into the game as an assassination target/boss.

Bugs[]

  • Scanning the Juno Fog, Nul, Sap and Slo Comba will only contribute towards the Codex entries of their corresponding Eximus versions.
    • A known workaround for this bug is scanning a ghost created by Ballistica Prime. Because ghosts spawned by Ballistica Prime's charged shot cannot be the Eximus version of what was killed, this interaction can be used to contribute towards the Codex entries of non-Eximus versions of Juno Comba.

Media[]

Patch History[]

Update 29.5 (2020-11-19)

  • Made a micro-optimization in cases where Comba could not spawn.

Hotfix 24.1.2 (2018-11-29)

  • Fixed Warframes with Channeling abilities being permanently nullified by Scrambus or Comba enemies when hit by their projection Aura while in Operator mode.

Update 22.20 (2018-05-17)

Scrambus/Comba Changes
  • Their Nullify aura has been replaced with a power that they can activate in combat. Upon use, it creates an expanding sphere that nuffilies players’ powers, and disrupts them for 2.5 seconds. https://clips.twitch.tv/SecretiveSplendidShallotWTRuck
  • Similar to the way shooting the Nullifier bubble or weak point can interrupt or prevent the aura from spreading, shooting off Scrambus/Comba’s helmet (or killing them) will negate the sphere: https://imgur.com/93yStsu

Hotfix 22.17.2 (2018-04-10)

  • Fixed placing a Corpus Articula and setting it to Nul Comba resulting in inability to place any more Decorations in that area of the Orbiter.

Hotfix 22.17.1 (2018-04-05)

  • Fixed the Corpus Nul Comba Articula missing textures and materials on the shoes.

Update 22.17 (2018-03-28)

New Grineer and Corpus Articula!

All new poseable and scale models of both Grineer and Corpus foot soldiers!

  • Grineer
    • Frontier Butcher
    • Frontier Eviscerator
    • Frontier Heavy Gunner

  • Reduced damage of the Swarmer weapon used by Comba and Scrambus units.

Hotfix 20.0.6 (2017-03-29)

  • Fixed missing walk animations for Combas with a shield equipped.
  • Fixed an issue with Comba units inside Limbo's Cataclysm continuously trying to pull players out of the Rift. Fog/Sap Combas should now properly nullify abilities even if they have a different Rift status than the player. Slo/Nul Combas still need to have the same Rift status as the player to affect them.

Update 19.2 (2016-12-01)

  • Fixed Melee speed powers/Mods being disabled in the presence of a Slo Comba.
  • Fixed all Comba/Scrambus’ being able to nullify Nekros’ Shadow of the Dead summons.

Update 19.0 (2016-11-11)

  • Fixed numerous issues with enemy projectiles being able to affect players through solid objects. Affected enemies are as follows:
