Notes[edit | edit source]

  • 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 20px.pngReach.
    • The effects do not work on enemies not in the same plane as you.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Synergizes well with Mod TT 20px.pngElectromagnetic Shielding so any allies within 12m will also have some damage and all status procs redirected to you instead.
  • Works very well with NyxIcon272.png Nyx's Mod TT 20px.pngAssimilate Warframe Augment Mod, allowing any damage taken from the now aggravated enemies to be absorbed instead.
  • Works very well with GarudaIcon272.png Garuda's DreadMirror130xDark.png 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.png Snow Globe (assuming the range is below or equal to normal size), IronSkin130xDark.png Iron Skin, WardingHalo130xDark.png Warding Halo and can quickly charge up VexArmor130xDark.png Vex Armor.
  • On Infested missions (due to being mostly close-range melee enemies), can be synergized with Loki's Mod TT 20px.pngSavior 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.png Javlok's alt-fire or Lenz.png Lenz) can trigger a more controllable block. This can be a further usable technique with Mod TT 20px.pngCautious Shot equipped.
  • The SMSydon.png 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.
