CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals Toxin b Toxin damage on melee attacks and primarily Puncture b Puncture damage on thrown attacks.

Advantages:

  • Innate Toxin b Toxin damage – effective against health and bypasses shields.
  • Silent.
  • Charge Attack throws the glaive, which can bounce up three times or travels up to 27 meters before returning to the user, damaging anyone in its path.
    • Thrown glaive has high Puncture b Puncture damage – effective against health.
    • Primary and secondary weapons can be fired and reloaded can be used normally with a thrown glaive, and retrieving the glaive does not interrupt these actions.
    • Glaive can explode mid-flight via channeling and forces a return.
  • Can be wielded in-tandem with a single-handed secondary weapon.
  • Innate Madurai Pol and Naramon Pol polarities.

Disadvantages:

  • Lowest base melee damage of all glaives.
  • Innate Toxin b Toxin damage – less effective against shields.
  • Exploding glaive has low Impact b Impact and Slash b Slash damage – less effective against shields and health.
  • Short melee range.
  • Cannot use melee attacks while the glaive is in mid-flight.
  • Exploding glaive inflicts self-damage.

NotesEdit

  • The thrown attack deals physical damage, with Puncture b Puncture damage as the dominant damage type.
  • When equipping the Cerata, the player can throw it and then press the channeling button to detonate the Cerata, dealing high AoE damage and making it return to the player immediately. This is true for all thrown melee weapons.
    • It can explode in this manner when not equipped and thrown, but the explosion timing cannot be controlled and will often damage the user in close quarters.
    • It should be however noted that finisher attacks can still be executed while the weapon is in the air.

TriviaEdit

  • Cerata are anatomical structures found externally on nudibranches. They are typically used to aid respiration, but are sometimes used for attack and defense.

Bugs Edit

  • The Cerata will appear very small in the codex, after the selected warframe holds the weapon upwards it will become normal sized again.
