A shattered talisman of the Grineer Elder Queen. It pulls health orbs from deceased enemies and energy orbs from destroyed robots.

The Broken Scepter is the signature staff of the Grineer Elder Queen. It has a special ability that grants players a health orb whenever an opponent is killed by the weapon.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When an opponent is killed, they will automatically drop a Health Orb near their bodies, giving 15 health to anyone that picks up the health orb.
  • It is advisable not to dispose of the Broken Scepter, as there is currently no way to reobtain it.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • During The War Within quest, Teshin reveals that the Scepter is an Orokin artifact that was utilized to command the sworn allegiance of the Orokin's Dax soldiers.
    • It is unclear whether the Broken Scepter still allows the player to command the Dax or if it requires the Kuva to be attached.
  • The Elder Queen can fire a beam from the scepter. This ability cannot be replicated by the player.
