Diriga shocks nearby enemies, and picks off distant threats, utilizing the Vulklok sniper rifle and the 'Calculated Shot', 'Arc Coil' and 'Electro Pulse' precepts.

The Diriga is a Grineer Sentinel pre-equipped with the Vulklok as its default weapon, allowing it to pick off targets at long ranges or constantly stun close ranged targets.

Notes

  • Electro Pulse links to a target and delivers a constant Electricity b Electricity proc to the target, which will link to nearby targets but will not stun those additional enemies. It deals very little damage, and enemies will be able to use abilities or fire their weapon a little between their stun animations. This makes it useful for enemies that rush the player, stunning one in place until the enemy is killed or the player moves out of range.

Trivia

  • The name Diriga is likely derived from the Latin term dirigere, meaning to direct or lead.
  • Compared to most Sentinels the Diriga is considerably cruder in design, particularly the balloons to keep it aloft and cables dangling from underneath, conforming with the aesthetic of similar Grineer drones such as the Regulator.
  • The design of the Diriga resembles a Portuguese man o' war, a jellyfish-like organism with a distinctive "sail" on its body.
  • The Diriga is the first sentinel that has asymmetrical wing ports, with the left port much lower on the body than the right port.
    • Badges are also on the front and back of the sentinel, not on its sides. The front one in particular can end up covered by mask attachments.
  • The Diriga is the first Sentinel since the Carrier whose blueprint can be purchased straight from the Market, roughly a 2 year gap between their releases. Sentinels released between that period had their blueprints limited to Clan Research (Djinn and Helios), the Void (Wyrm Prime and Carrier Prime), or through other sources (Prisma Shade).
