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

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

This weapon can be sold for Credits645,000.


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 Credits64250,000 and PrimeBucks410. 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.
