Exalted Weapons are special weapons exclusive to certain Warframes that can only be summoned and used upon activating their corresponding Warframe's ability. Exalted Weapons will take the place of the weapon in the corresponding weapon slot when activated (for example, Hildryn's Balefire Charger replaces your secondary, and Valkyr Talons take the place of your equipped melee)-excluding Titania's Dex Pixia and Diwata, as those lock your whole set of equipped weapons-for as long as the corresponding ability is active.
The stats and performances of these weapons are affected by mods equipped on the weapons themselves and also by certain mods equipped on the Warframe, such as Ability Duration mods, depending on the weapon. Certain mods, such as Weapon Augments, cannot be equipped on Exalted Weapons and Riven Mods are not generated for them. These weapons do not utilize ammunition and instead consume energy, either per shot or continuously, while active. To see which specific mods affect which weapon, visit their ability pages.
One frame comes with a weapon exclusive to it that is not an Exalted Weapon, and is mechanically a mundane weapon in all important respects, but still shares a few characteristics with Exalted Weapons (see Notes):
