Tactics[edit | edit source]

  • The Hyekka Master likes to stay slightly at range from enemies, using her summoned Hyekka to charge while she fires her GrineerFlameThrower.png Ignis from a distance.
  • She has three distinct animations for attacks, summoning/commanding Hyekka, firing her Ignis, and throwing a bomb.
    • When telling her Hyekka to attack, she swings her arm in a circle and points in the direction of the enemy. This is a fairly long animation, giving an opening for attack. Staggering her will stop the animation, but the Hyekka will still attack the target.
    • When firing the Ignis, she will strafe around opponents, much like a Heavy Gunner. She fires randomly and swings her arm around, covering a large area but not hitting the initial target much.
    • When throwing a firebomb, she will slightly pause and use her hand that is not holding the Ignis to attack. The bomb looks much like a Latcher but explodes on contact with an enemy or environmental object.
      • The bombs will leave behind an area of fire, much like the Battle Damage/Self-Destruct Environmental Hazards. This lasts for a short period of time and will damage all enemy units while not affecting her allies or herself. The field also has a guaranteed fire proc on whoever steps within it, which refreshes while the subject continues to linger within the field.
      • Previously, all units - her allies, Hyekka and even herself - were affected by this attack, until later patches addressed this. This bug still persists in Invasion missions where Grineer are the allied faction.
  • Hyekka Masters will replace their Hyekka very quickly upon their death, summoning between two and four Hyekka. This is usually followed by their animation to send the Hyekka to attack a target.
  • Hyekka Masters have highly sophisticated sensors that allow them to hunt and tame Feral Kavat, which have natural invisibility. As such, they are capable of detecting enemies with stealth, adding a further danger to some missions.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Hyekka Masters have an 80% resistance against Heat b.png Heat damage. However, due to Cloned Flesh's 25% Heat weakness, this results in a 75% Heat resistance.
  • Hyekka Masters purposely swirl their Ignis around when firing. While this increases the cone at which they hit players, it also dramatically reduces the chance of players being incinerated instantly from nowhere, which is a common grievance of the Scorch.
  • If Nyx uses any of her mind controlling abilities, the Hyekka Master may spawn allied Hyekkas.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Devstream 61 this enemy was referred to as Crazy Cat Lady.
  • Hyekka Masters can occasionally be heard whistling the song 'Three Blind Mice'.
