Feral Kavat

Feral Kavats are the wild, feline-like creatures stalking around on any Orokin Derelict tileset, feeding on Infested flesh. They are patient hunters, waiting to ambush unsuspecting prey, Tenno, Grineer, and Corpus alike, that stumbles upon them.

  • They attack by swarming and charging at enemies, chasing them down while slashing at them. Kavats may also slash with their claws at stationary targets.
  • They prefer to stay cloaked until either an enemy approaches them or the room is alerted due to an attack upon an infested. Attacking non-infested/Kavat units in a room will not trigger aggression.
    • Any Kavat that is cloaked will not be seen by Mod TT 20px Enemy Sense or Mod TT 20px Enemy Radar. However, looking through a Codex Scanner or Synthesis Scanner will show them.
    • Cloaked Kavats can be seen in-game. They have an animation that looks similar to a LokiIcon272 Loki's Invisibility130xWhite Invisibility, using an orange energy color.
    • When Kavats lose aggression, they will return to this cloaked state automatically.
    • Kavats cannot attack you while cloaked; their aggression will de-activate their own cloaking ability.
  • Kavat can jump onto nearby walls or other flat surfaces and jump off of them to attack enemies. They may also do this for traversing terrain, letting them wall jump while cloaked.
  • Kavats never spawn alone. Usually, there are somewhere between two and six in a group. Using this to their advantage, Kavat will usually try to surround an enemy with one charging from the front and the others attacking from the sides of the enemy.



  • Feral Kavats can hunt and kill Operators while they are cloaked in void mode.
