"Let me tell you Tenno, it's a good thing I was able to shutdown the new Hyena models. This year's version is really nasty business; faster, meaner, deadlier than before. An excellent product really."

The Hyena Pack are the final bosses of Neptune, made up by four unique and deadly variants of the Hyena proxy. They work in packs of up to four with each of them possessing a unique set of abilities. Each Hyena possesses a plasma repeater, and they are far more agile than any other enemy (other than the Grineer Manic) in the game, including Zanuka and Zanuka Hunter. Alongside their agility, they can also jump on to and cling to walls, though they cannot wallrun. The Lotus has marked them for assassination due to their extreme danger and destroying the models may slow down further production.

They can be found on the mission Psamathe on Neptune, and after defeating them and finishing the mission, the player will receive LokiIcon272 Loki component blueprints. They can also be found during Razorback Armada missions, and a completely different set of Hyena proxies exist on the Orb Vallis. Upon death, all the Hyenas have a chance of dropping Orokin Cells or Control Modules.


There are four unique variants of the Hyenas, each possessing unique color scheme. Hyena LN2 is overall white, Hyena Pb has a mix between green and brown, Hyena Ng's color is a blend between yellow and crimson, and Hyena Th's color is a shade ranging from teal to dark blue.

Unlike most other bosses (excluding The Sergeant), the Hyena Pack appears in specific standard rooms instead of a special arena; however, like other bosses, the pack taunts the players during the mission and has its own opening cinematic. Here is a list of their taunts:


  • "The Pack is watching you"
  • "The Pack can smell you"
  • "The Pack grows excited, we have been waiting for this."

During Battle

  • "The Pack calls for your death."
  • "The Pack says: 'kill them off one by one' "
  • "The Pack says: 'kill the weakest one first' "
  • "The Pack sings when you die."
  • "The Pack is designed to enjoy this, It is in its circuits."

Hyena Destroyed

  • "Hyena down: The Pack will intensify the hunt."
  • "Hyena disabled: The Pack grows weak."
  • "Hyena destroyed, our circuits demand revenge."


The Hyena Pack, true to the intel, work in packs of up to four with each of them possessing a unique set of abilities. Each Hyena possesses a plasma repeater and are far more agile than any other enemy in the game, including Zanuka and Zanuka Hunter. Alongside their agility, they can also jump on to and cling to walls, though they cannot wallrun.

Hyena LN2 (Liquid Nitrogen) is capable of releasing a path of icicles towards its target, akin to FrostIcon272 Frost's IceWave130xDark Ice Wave; this guarantees Cold proc and inflicts significant damage.

Hyena LN2's Repeater deals Cold b Cold Damage, and Hyena LN2 itself generates a freezing aura effect, which constantly inflicts Cold proc nearby, drastically slowing down those in its vicinity.

Users:Hyena LN2

Lieutenant Lech Kril

  • Deals Cold b Cold damage to all targets in a line that is 20 meters long and 3 meters wide, which also inflicts Cold proc.
  • Ice Wave can be distinguished from Kril's normal melee attacks by the overhead swing he uses to initiate it.

Tips & Tricks
  • If Kril tries to use Ice Wave while one of his cryo hoses is loose, his attack will backfire and freeze him instead.

Hyena Ng (Nitroglycerin) is armed with heavy AoE firepower, it will occasionally fire a Blast Grenade capable of knocking down the player. It is also capable of performing Fire Wave, which lights a path of ground on fire and also guarantees Fire proc.

Hyena Ng's Repeater deals Heat b Heat Damage and it is highly resistant to Heat b Heat damage due to its Fire Resistance aura, as stated in its tooltip.

Hyena Ng

  • Launches a slow, burning projectile which will explode, causing high Blast b Blast damage to all targets caught within its radius and occasionally inflicting knockdown.
    • Damage scales with level.

Tips & Tricks
  • Projectiles shot from this ability are very slow with a steep arc, allowing for an easy escape if tracked.

Lieutenant Lech Kril

  • Deals high Heat b Heat Damage per tick to all targets in a line for 20 meters long, while also inflicting Heat proc.
    • Damage scales with level.

Tips & Tricks
  • Has a long casting delay, which opens a lot of room to dodge this ability.
  • Damage can be mitigated with the Mod TT 20pxFire Resistance mod.

Hyena Pb (Lead) does not have any specific elemental effects or abilities, it however makes this up by possessing heavy firepower. Occasionally, it will perform Lead Storm, where it will jump into the air, spin, and fire a large number of projectiles to all directions as an anti close-combat measure.

Hyena Pb's Repeater deals Slash b Slash and Puncture b Puncture Damage; and it will occasionally project a shield aura that will replenish a small amount of shields nearby, including its own.

HyenaLeadStorm NovaAbility2 Lead Storm
Shoots a very high amount of bullets in all directions to deal massive damage against all nearby targets.
Strength:Extremely High (Damage)
Users:Hyena Pb

  • Hyena Pb jumps approximately a meter to a meter and a half off the ground, then spins and shoots an extremely high amount of Blast b Blast bullets in all directions.
  • Hyena Pb prefers to use Lead Storm at point blank to inflict maximum damage. It can very easily rip through defensive powers such as IronSkin130xDark Iron Skin and even the heaviest shields. Most Warframes will likely be incapacitated, and Sentinels will almost certainly be destroyed.

Tips & Tricks
  • Lead Storm has very little offensive capability against long range targets, try to keep as much distance as possible.

Hyena Th (Thorium)'s special attacks are Electric Surge, a wave of electricity that travels quickly across the ground; a Shock Bolt that guarantees Electric proc; and the ability to Charge at nearby enemies.

Hyena Th's Repeater deals Electricity b Electricity Damage and Hyena Th itself possesses a constant Disruption Aura. Simply being near it will induce the Magnetic proc, scrambling the screen and instantly draining all energy as well as a large chunk of shields.

  • Hyena Th lifts one of its paw, before stomping it on the ground and charges towards its target by 20 meters distance. Any in its path hit by this charge will be knocked down.

Tips & Tricks
  • Has a notably long cast delay, which provides some time to dodge this ability.

Tips & Tricks


In GeneralEdit

The Hyena pack is capable of taking a beating. They all have hard hitting attacks, and if not careful, you will have no energy for any abilities. A loadout containing Radiation b Radiation damage is recommended in order to deal with the Hyenas effectively.

As with other bosses, it is important to eliminate surrounding grunts first before targeting the Hyena pack, which is even more important due to the Hyenas seemingly buffing them. However, keep in mind attempting to flee is nigh-useless; the Hyenas have the power to teleport Tenno into the same room as them.

Hyena Th is by far the toughest to deal with if one relies on their energy pool to fight. Taking out Hyena Th should always be your primary concern due to its Disruption Aura being capable of instantly draining shields and energy upon proximity, along with the hud-scrambling effect.

Always try to keep a medium-long distance when fighting against Hyena Pb; tanking its Lead Storm at close proximity will ensure heavy damage (if not death) as well as an almost-guaranteed Blast b Blast proc. By keeping your distance, Hyena Pb is the least concern due to its lack of long-range abilities. This ability can also be extremely taken advantage of by TrinityIcon272 Trinity or NidusIcon272 Nidus: using Link130xDark Link or ParasiticLink130xDark Parasitic Link will cause instant death at close range, though it may also kill you if you have low health and shields.

Due to their high firepower, shields, and health, it is somewhat difficult for an unprepared Tenno to beat the Hyena Pack alone. Being able to damage the Hyena Pack's proto shields is vital, so consider bringing weapons with high impact damage (like Gorgon Gorgon or GrineerM16Rifle Karak).

As is the standard strategy against multiple difficult foes, Divide and Conquer. Focus on one Hyena at a time and stay away from the others.

Due to Th's Disruption Aura, caster frames like NovaIcon272 Nova and TrinityIcon272 Trinity may be left without any means of support, offense and defense. Due to this, tanky frames like RhinoIcon272 Rhino and ValkyrIcon272 Valkyr may do better over casters.

Squad Energy Restores may prove useful. Though a slightly expensive investment, the energy restoration effect can allow players to get back on their feet after being drained by Hyena Th.

Utilizing Warframe AbilitiesEdit

ValkyrIcon272 Valkyr's Hysteria130xDark Hysteria can be used to negate the draining effect of Hyena Th.

VoltIcon272 Volt's ElectricShield130xDark Electric Shield can be used to negate incoming damage while being able to increase the damage output.

AshIcon272 Ash's Mod TT 20pxFatal Teleport will deal massive damage (usually insta-kill non-sortie/star chart level Hyenas) if used with a melee weapon modded for finisher damage.

Even at Sortie level, a positive ability strength Nova can easily kill them. Simply use Molecular Prime to slow them down, then use Antimatter Drop for damage. One fully charged Drop can kill all three of them.


  • In earlier versions the Hyena was said to be a new Corpus proxy that hunted in packs. However, you only fought one during the mission. This was eventually changed in Update 12.0 with the Hyena finally becoming a pack boss as a tie-in to the Ties That Bind alert.
  • The Hyena was also fourth & the first Corpus boss in the game to receive a complete overhaul.
    • For that matter, prior to Update 12 the Hyena was essentially a scaled-down Jackal in both size and firepower.
  • Each of the Hyenas is named after a chemical element or compound that reflects their abilities.
    • LN2 (Liquid Nitrogen) is nitrogen in a liquid state at an extremely low temperature as low as −196 °C (77 K; −321 °F) which reflects Hyena LN2's ice-based abilities.
    • Pb (Lead) is one of the elements most commonly used for bullets, which reflects Hyena Pb's extremely high amount of firepower.
    • Ng (Nitroglycerin) is a heavy, colorless, oily, explosive liquid commonly used in explosives like dynamite, reflecting Hyena Ng's explosive firepower.
    • Th (Thorium) is a naturally occurring radioactive chemical element which is paramagnetic (slightly affected by magnetism); while this somewhat explains Hyena Th's magnetic properties, its electrical attacks may be a reference to the element's namesake, Thor.
  • The Hyena Pack is the third boss that consists of multiple entities; the first being the combo fight with Lieutenant Lech Kril and Captain Vor on Ceres, and the second being the first phase of Lephantis. Originally the fight always consisted of all four Hyenas at once, but this was later changed in favor of scaling with player number, with solo attempts getting two randomly chosen Hyenas.
  • It appears that Hyena NG (Nitroglycerin) is the leader of the Hyena Pack since it is the only Hyena seen broadcasting the taunts to players, and that it is the central Hyena in the panorama. It is also the Hyena that has been seen the most in the game as it appears in the Hyena Facility Tactical Alert and the Proxy Rebellion weekend alerts.
  • The Hyena Pack can be seen mounting DEPenta Pentas on their backs in the Codex and during a mission, but do not have said weapon in the mission lobby.
  • It seems that the Hyena Pack can be fought in at least two different tiles.
    • This trait is also shared with The Sergeant both using the same exact tiles.


  • Hyena Th's electric attacks often leave particle effects on the map that do not naturally dissipate.
  • Sometimes when you reach the Hyena pack, Lotus will not say that you have reached the assassination target, meaning that if you kill all of the Hyena pack (If you are playing with a full squad) Lotus will not say nice work on taking out the assassination target get to extraction, so that means you can't finish the mission, it is unknown if you can find extraction and if it will actually beat the mission. Although this normally happens if you skip the boss cutscene while it doesn't when you watch the cutscene through, so watching the cutscene is recommended to avoid this bug.
  • On attempts with only one or two players, it is possible for the mission to bug out if neither of the Hyenas is Ng, as it will still be Ng sending transmissions. Even if the actual Hyenas are killed, Ng will still send transmissions, but not actually be present, thus making the mission impossible.


  • Demolisher Hyena, as seen on The Codex

Patch HistoryEdit

Hotfix 25.8.1

Hyena Change (Razorback mission only):

An Orokin Cell farming exploit was brought to our attention by not only players, but also our internal flagging system when such a method is tripped for misuse. In short, players were forcing the Hyena’s to spawn infinitely by entering/exiting rooms knowing that their Orokin Cell drop rate is 100%. As a result of this misuse, the Orokin Cell drop rate for the Hyena’s in the Razorback mission will diminish the more you spawn, to still allow for multiple drop attempts but without giving away the entire cake. Please note that players who are trade banned due to triggering this exploit will be manually unbanned after this Hotfix.
