  • When blocking, enemies within 15m will shift their focus to you instead. Sometimes getting knocked down will cancel your block.
    • Range cannot be increased by Mod TT 20pxReach.
    • The effects do not work on enemies not in the same plane as you.


  • Synergizes well with Mod TT 20pxElectromagnetic Shielding so any allies within 12m will also have some damage and all status procs redirected to you instead.
  • Works very well with NyxIcon272 Nyx's Mod TT 20pxAssimilate Warframe Augment Mod, allowing any damage taken from the now aggravated enemies to be absorbed instead.
  • Works very well with GarudaIcon272 Garuda's DreadMirror130xDark Dread Mirror, forcing enemies to attack the ability's shield, allowing it to absorb more damage.
  • Can be used to quickly charge damage absorption states on SnowGlobe130xDark Snow Globe (assuming the range is below or equal to normal size), IronSkin130xDark Iron Skin, WardingHalo130xDark Warding Halo and can quickly charge up VexArmor130xDark Vex Armor.
  • On Infested missions (due to being mostly close-range melee enemies), can be synergized with Loki's Mod TT 20pxSavior Decoy, standing within 15m of the decoy and blocking will make most enemies shoot at you instead, and if you take fatal damage you instead teleport to where your decoy was.
  • Using a delayed explosive (e.g. GrnFlameSpear Javlok's alt-fire or Lenz Lenz) can trigger a more controllable block. This can be a further usable technique with Mod TT 20pxCautious Shot equipped.
  • The SMSydon Vaykor Sydon's special ability relies on blocking enemy attacks to charge up, giving Guardian Derision excellent synergy with it and easily providing free radial blinds.
