Corrupted Heavy Gunner are Orokin-controlled Grineer Heavy Gunners. They share the same abilities and traits as regular Heavy Gunners. However, Corrupted Gunners have twice as much HP in comparison to regular ones.


  • As with their Non-Corrupted counterpart, Corrupted Heavy Gunners often attack surrounded by allies allowing time for their Gorgon to spool up and shred through Tenno shielding whilst their corrupted allies draw fire.
  • Corrupted Heavy Gunners have inaccurate weapons, so it may be advisable to dispatch them from a long range.
  • It is ill-advised to get within melee range of a Corrupted Heavy Gunner, as they possess the same knockback ability as their Non-Corrupted counterpart.
  • Leech Eximus variants of the Corrupted Heavy Gunner should be prioritized as targets, before they are able to spool their Gorgon machine gun. Their fast rate of fire can enable them to continually heal themselves faster than some weapons can damage them.


Baro Ki'Teer may sell one time use Specter blueprints for a Corrupted Heavy Gunner which also includes a respawning Orokin Drone.



  • Electrical Damage, Impact Damage Procs, Fire Damage Procs and Blast Procs will stop them from firing their Gorgon and force them to respool, whilst also enabling them to be taken down without the worry of gunfire as to being temporarily unable to fire.
    • Stuns and other crowd-control powers do not prevent their knockdown attack from activating if they have already initiated the animation for it.
  • Given their large HP pool and the devastating Gorgon machine gun, Corrupted Heavy Gunners are good candidates for Mind Control.
    • If the player is using a fully ranked Mind Freak Warframe Augment, a Corrupted Heavy Gunner can decimate entire squads of enemies as soon as they enter her range.
  • Nyx's Chaos ability can help prevent teams from being overwhelmed by multiple Corrupted Heavy Gunners, by creating a temporary safe haven for Tenno to dispatch them from.
  • Being arguably the most dangerous enemy type in the void, it is recommended to deal with them first before other units unless another unit (such as a Corrupted Nullifier) is shielding them.
