A blood-red variant of this destructive flamethrower.

The Ignis Wraith is the Wraith version of the Ignis.png Ignis flamethrower, featuring improved critical chance, status chance, and magazine size.


  • This weapon deals DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage.
  • Beam has a thickness of 0.15 meters, largest beam thickness of all continuous weapons.
    • Because of this and the pinpoint accuracy, Mod TT 20px.png Heavy Caliber's penalty is negligible on this weapon.
  • The zone of impact or maximum beam range has a spherical blast radius of 3 meters, allowing it to hit multiple enemies at once.


  • Pinpoint accuracy.
  • Consumes 0.5 ammo per tick of damage.
  • Innate infinite punch through against bodies.
  • Normal Attack
    • Very high magazine
    • Above average effective fire rate
    • High max ammo
    • High reload speed
    • Above average status chance
    • High crit multiplier


  • Damage ramps up from 35% to 100% over 0.6 seconds when firing. After firing stops for 0.8 seconds, the damage decays back to 35% over 2 seconds.
  • Limited beam range of 27 meters (+3m blast radius resulting in a total range of 30m).
  • Innate punch through does not apply to surfaces, requiring punch through mods.
  • (bug?) Multishot has no effect on the radial damage.
  • Normal Attack
    • Below average crit chance
    • Low damage
    • Very low disposition


  • Ignis Wraith (Normal Attack), compared to Ignis (Normal Attack):


This weapon was awarded from Operation: The Pacifism Defect event. The exact form in which the weapon can be acquired differs depending on the level of participation during the event:

  • All participating players in Clans that achieved the specified Clan Participation Score (e.g. 260 for Ghost clans) received an Ignis Wraith blueprint at the end of the event.
  • All players in a Clan that achieved the specified Victory Score during the event (e.g. 4,000 for Ghost clans) immediately received a complete Ignis Wraith with a free weapon slot and a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.
  • Clans that placed within the top 10% scoring clans in their tier received Research for the Ignis Wraith in the Chem Lab at the end of the event.

A fully built Ignis Wraith is now potentially sold by Baro Ki'Teer in the Concourse section of the Tenno Relay for Credits64.png 250,000 and PrimeBucks.png 550. Note that Baro Ki'Teer's stock changes with each appearance, and this weapon may not be available on a succeeding appearance.

The blueprint was available from Ticker in Fortuna during the Star Days event for 25 AdvancesDebtBond64.png Advances Debt-Bond.

The blueprint is now available from Veil Proxima Grineer-controlled territory Abandoned Derelict Caches in Empyrean missions.

The blueprint can be traded, although the recipient must have a Mastery Rank of at least 9. However, the fully built version from Baro Ki'Teer is not tradeable. Because of its ease of accessibility thanks to The Pacifism Defect and Empyrean, many players are willing to give away a blueprint copy for free.

All drop rates data is obtained from DE's official drop tables. See Mission Rewards#Standard Missions for definitions on reward table rotations. Drop chances are rounded to two decimal places, following the official drop tables repository.
Expected means a player can expect to obtain at least one of a drop every N attempts on average.
Nearly Guaranteed refers to the total number of attempts a player needs to obtain a 1 in 10^2,3, and 4 probability not to have recieved a single drop (99%, 99.9%, and 99.99% probability to have received at least one drop).
The combined probability of multiple drops is 1 - ((1-A%) * (1-B%) * ...) (add drops in same rotation)

  • The Ignis Wraith's hit detection is composed of two parts:
    • A perfectly accurate central beam that reaches up to 27 meters. This beam has a 0.15-meter thickness, unlike other beam weapons whose beams are very narrow.
    • A spherical blast with 3 meters radius appears at the zone of impact or at maximum range.
      • Punch through affects the location of the weapon's area of affect. The weapon's area of affect is applied at the final point of contact where the beam ends rather than whenever the beam punches through an enemy or object.
    • Mod TT 20px.png Sinister Reach only affects the beam range, not the beam thickness and the area of effect.
    • Mod TT 20px.png Firestorm only affects the area of effect, not the beam thickness and the beam range.
  • When combined with other elemental mods, such as DmgColdSmall64.png Cold, it will no longer deal the original fire damage, losing its high bonus versus Light Infested (+50%). Thus, it is advised to add DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin damage to create DmgGasSmall64.png Gas damage to kill Light Infested. Add DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity + DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin to create DmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive damage, and add DmgColdSmall64.png Cold to create DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage to kill Heavy Infested.
  • The Ignis Wraith's spherical AoE can destroy rockets launched from a Bombard's Ogris.png Ogris.
    • This only works if the Ignis deals DmgFireSmall64.png Heat or DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage. Building for DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation or DmgGasSmall64.png Gas will not produce this effect.
  • The Ignis Wraith can deal headshots and target enemy weak spots.


  • Mod TT 20px.png Hellfire and Mod TT 20px.png Wildfire apply DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage to the weapon. They do not act like base damage mods, but rather stack with the innate DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage of the weapon.
  • Adding DmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive, DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic, or DmgGasSmall64.png Gas in addition to DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage makes the Ignis very effective versus Grineer / Corpus / Infested, though less effective against Corpus Proto Shields.
  • It is a wise idea to equip a long-ranged weapon in your secondary slot when using the Ignis Wraith.
  • It is unwise to have Specters equip this gun as they only fire on targets when they are ~10m away from them.
  • Mod TT 20px.png Combustion Beam can be equipped to the Ignis Wraith, causing enemies to deal damage on death to other nearby enemies. This aids in crowd control and quicker elimination of weaker and closely-grouped enemies.
  • Due to its nature of AoE, this weapon is particularly effective against destructible projectiles.
  • Adding Mod TT 20px.png Heavy Caliber as a second Mod TT 20px.png Serration results in an increase of damage. The reduction of accuracy will cause the beam to slightly waver, which is a negative for most weapons, but is arguably a benefit for the Ignis as the effective AoE spread will widen slightly.
    • The loss in accuracy is small enough that the central beam will still land headshots consistently at maximum distance, even with Mod TT 20px.png Sinister Reach equipped.
  • The Ignis Wraith is designed to deal with crowds, spreading low damage but hitting all enemies in range, where most other weapons (besides explosive dealing AoE weapons) are single or multi-target. In other words, the larger the crowd, the better the weapon becomes at distributing damage compared to most other weapons.
  • The Ignis Wraith is very useful in reactor core Sabotage missions, as its spherical AoE allows it to destroy several exposed reactor cores at once.
  • Shade's Mod TT 20px.png Ghost can activate even if the Ignis Wraith is being fired, so long as the fire key is held down upon Ghost's activation.
    • This is more effective on the Wraith variant, as it has 50 more magazine capacity over the original, allowing more time to be cloaked and deal damage.
  • Mod TT 20px.png Sinister Reach can also be equipped on the Ignis Wraith, greatly increasing the range of its central beam. This will also move the spherical AoE forward by the same distance.
  • The radius of the spherical AoE can be increased with Mod TT 20px.png Firestorm.


  • The Ignis Wraith was hinted at by a forum post sent by Rebecca Ford regarding the then-upcoming The Pacifism Defect event that was an Acrostic, a form of writing where the first letter of each line spells out a word or words. The message, with the first letter of each line bolded for clarity, read as follows;
Rebecca Ford's Encrypted Message

It's coming - but not today. The earliest it will release is tomorrow.

Good news - we're working on our first Clan Operation in quite some time to be a part of this, so please bear with us as we get all the details in

Nice order.

If you are in a competitive Clan: The moment the Operation begins, your Clan Roster is locked in. Clan membership changes that occur after the

Start of the Operation will not be reflected in the Leaderboards.

Wise move: Prepare!


Act now!

If you wish to readjust your membership, do so before the Operation begins!

This is advanced warning.

Heads up!


  • The flame effect will vanish when pressing the fire button in short bursts, causing the weapon to sometimes be firing invisible flames.
