A customized version of the vicious Prova, with metallic finish and Lotus decal.

The Prova Vandal is the Vandal version of the Prova8point2.png Prova melee weapon, offering greater damage.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64.png 5,000.


This weapon was first introduced as a potential reward from The Gradivus Dilemma event if the conflict favored the Corpus. However, the Grineer won the event, and as such the Prova Vandal was not rewarded.

The Proval Vandal was awarded again during the Operation Breeding Grounds event if players could obtain 48 points in a single mission, complete with a free weapon slot and a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.

The Prova Vandal is now potentially sold by Baro Ki'Teer in the Concourse section of the Tenno Relay for Credits64.png 250,000 and PrimeBucks.png 410. Note that Baro Ki'Teer's stock changes with each appearance, and this weapon may not be available on a succeeding appearance.

The weapon can be traded, but only for unranked copies without Forma and Orokin Catalyst installed. The trading recipient must also have a Mastery Rank of at least 3.


This weapon deals DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity damage.

  • The Prova Vandal was one of two melee weapon rewards for The Gradivus Dilemma, the other being the DEWraithMachete.png Machete Wraith. This would have been obtained by fighting 25 battles on any side during The Gradivus Dilemma and if the Corpus had won. As the Grineer won, players got the Machete Wraith instead.
    • Although it was never distributed in the game at the time, information about it existed in the Codex
  • Prova Vandal is the first Vandal melee weapon to be released.
