Utilizing a new fighting stance, this Tenno weapon turns fists into claws and enemies into messy piles of meat and scrap metal.

TipsEdit

  • Because of the low damage and attack speed of the Venka, it's recommended to use a Warframe more suited for melee combat.
    • Fits ValkyrIcon272 Valkyr well due to her resistance to damage, as well as her Warcry130xDark Warcry ability which will speed up the attack speed of the weapon. VoltIcon272 Volt can also use his Speed130xDark Speed ability to speed up the weapon and allow his high shields to soak up extra damage that will occur when focusing on melee combat against ranged enemies.

TriviaEdit

  • Venka translates roughly to "victorious" or "to win" in Esperanto.
  • The claws retract up to the hands until used or equipped. 
  • The Venka was first seen as an accidentally leaked Codex entry in Update 13.0, along with the Corpuspolearm Serro and the PrimeBo Bo Prime, before any of the weapons were released.
  • It is the first claw-type weapon introduced in the game.
  • The blades resemble the "P" in Tenno Script.
