For Unaffiliated Kavats, see Feral Kavat.
This article's factual accuracy is disputed. Please help to ensure that disputed statements are reliably sourced.

Kavats are terrain-restricted melee feline companions similar to Kubrows. They also have different breeds, color palettes, and patterns. There are currently three types of Kavats.


Kavats normally live in Infested areas and feed on the Infestation. Feral Kavats are naturally invisible and are not hostile to players unless they are scanned.

Due to their anti-Infested potential, the Grineer have domesticated Kavats for use in clearing out the Infestation from their ships. Kavat handlers, known as Hyekka Masters, are equipped with advanced sensors to detect Kavats, which can also detect invisible players, serving as an additional stealth hazard in Grineer missions.


Piercing eyes reflect deadly instincts.

This sly feline is playful yet devious.

A drinker of life, this Kavat prowls the Plains upon dusk.

Main article: Khora/Abilities

Khora's ferocious Kavat, Venari, fights alongside her with steadfast zeal. Venari is an exclusive Companion for the KhoraIcon272.png Khora Warframe, integrated as her signature passive ability. Venari will spawn beside Khora when the player first enters a mission, as a permanent companion that lasts until killed.

While Venari is alive, Khora passively gains a movement speed boost. If Venari is killed, she will respawn beside Khora after 45 seconds, or instantly if summoned via the third ability for an energy cost. Both passive features are tied to Khora's Venari130xDark.png Venari ability allowing her to be modified.

The most common Vulpaphyla, they travel in packs and are generally non-aggressive.

The Crescent is the most pugnacious subspecies of Vulpaphyla, they will rush anything they perceive as a threat.


This variant of Vulpaphyla only shows up when Vome watches over the Cambion Drift.

This hardy creature has a collagenous dermis that acts as a thick, protective armor.



The Adarza Kavat and Smeeta Kavats are acquired through Incubation. Kavats are bred using the Orbiter's Incubator, which must first be upgraded with a Kavat Incubator Upgrade Segment. This Upgrade Segment may be purchased from the market for Platinum64.png 175 or crafted from its corresponding blueprint which must be researched and purchased in the Dojo or dropped by Hyekka Masters. The blueprint assembly for the Upgrade Segment costs 10 Kavat Genetic Codes, which are obtained by scanning Feral Kavats with a Codex Scanner or Synthesis Scanner. Once installed, each breeding attempt requires 10 Kavat Genetic Codes and an Incubator Power Core.

Once the player meets the necessary requirements to begin breeding, the incubator offers a choice between a Random incubation or the use of Genetic Code Templates.


As the name implies, a Random incubation offers no guarantees on the resulting Kavat's Variant, head, tail, sex, color, or fur pattern.

Genetic Code Template[]

An incubation utilizing Genetic Code Templates offers a much higher probability of the traits imprinted on the Template to be present in the resulting Kavat, however, this is still not guaranteed, and certain Kavat traits are not even imprinted on the Template in the first place. See the Genetic Code Template article for more information about the transferral of traits from one Kavat to another when starting this type of incubation.

Regardless of the type of incubation, once the process is started, it will require 48 hours (24 hours with an Incubator Upgrade Segment) to complete. This stage may, however, be rushed for ‍Platinum64.png 15.


When the incubation process completes, either naturally or by rushing, the player will be able to name their new Kavat for free, subsequent renaming is possible for Platinum64.png 15. The named but non-mature Kavat can be kept for as long as the player wants, and will walk around the Orbiter; however, to be usable in missions, it must be matured, which is instantaneous.

Genetic Age Regressing[]

Players can regress the age of their Kavats back to their infant forms through the incubator. In their baby forms, they cannot be brought into missions to be used for combat or utility. Installed mods, Formas, and Orokin Reactors will still be intact if the player chooses to mature their Kavats again.


Venari130xDark.png Venari is KhoraIcon272.png Khora's companion that functions as her passive and third ability, and will always appear next to her. Venari cannot be separated from Khora.

Vasca Kavat[]

Vasca Kavats are Kavats that have been infected by the Vasca Virus that appears at nighttime in the Plains of Eidolon. When a player brings their Kavat to the wild Vasca and is attacked by them, it will become infected, indicated by a red overlay. The player must then take their infected Kavat back to the Orbiter's Incubator and use a Genetic Code Template on them, acquiring a Vasca Imprint while also removing the virus. Two Vasca Imprints are needed to guarantee a Vasca Kavat.

Note that breeding a domesticated Vasca Kavat still requires one Incubator Power Core and ten Kavat Genetic Codes.


Vulpaphylas are modular Kavats[citation needed] created through a process called Revivification with Son, using Mutagens and Antigens sold by him along with finding wild Vulpaphyla in Cambion Drift, Deimos via Conservation that have been weakened by hostile Infested.

Companion Slots[]

To begin, all Kavats will first need a Companion Slot (which can be bought for Platinum64.png 12 for 2 slots) to grow and mature before being usable in missions and will permanently occupy one Companion Slot. In the event that a player wishes to permanently remove a Kavat from their possession, such as due to the lack of vacant Companion Slots, the Kavat can be consigned to the Lotus for Credits64.png 25,000, freeing up their Companion Slot.



  • Kavats are referred to as "Catbrow" in the game files, a portmanteau of "cat" and "Kubrow."
  • The name of at least one breed of Kavat is derived from Sanskrit, which seems relevant to the breed's specialty;
  • While Incubating, when the Kavat shows up in kitten form, you can pet your Kavat by pressing your interact button when standing in front of the Incubator.
  • Despite technically being considered Kavats, Vulpaphylas have more in common appearance-wise with foxes, which in real life are part of the canidae (dog) family and not the felidae (cat) family of animals. This is furthered by their name, which is taken from the Latin word and genus "vulpes," meaning fox, and the plural form of phylum "phyla," the taxonomic rank below kingdom.

Patch History[]

Hotfix 31.5.2 (2022-04-28)

  • Fixed script error when Mod linking Kavat.

Update 31.1 (2022-02-09)

  • Fixed equipped Kavat lifting us its forelimb when swapping between Pets.

Hotfix 31.0.3 (2021-12-17)

  • Fixed broken textures on the Vasca Kavat fur.

Update 30.7 (2021-09-08)

  • Fixed a Look Linked Kavat appearing to have 2 tails.

Update 30.5 (2021-07-06)


The Companion System has received a much awaited overhaul! The Companion System has undergone many iterations: DNA Decay rate reductions, adding the option to ‘Consign’, removing the negative effects from a lack of Loyalty or Integrity, removing Stasis completely - the list goes on!

The below are our continued efforts to streamline the Companion System structure that is now almost 7 years old! With a combination of Community feedback and internal desires we’ve changed the following:

Genetic Aging Regressing

Within the Incubator you can now choose to “Regress Genetic Aging” of an existing Mature Companion back to their non-mature state (puppy, kitten, etc). Keep in mind that this unequips said Companion (if it was equipped) and it’s Armor/cosmetics are removed. At any time you can choose to Mature said Companion at which it will revert to its former Mature state with its existing Levels, stats, and Armor/cosmetics intact. There’s no limit to how many times you can Regress your Companion!

Stability & Loyalty Removal

We have removed the DNA Integrity and Loyalty groups from the Companion Management Screen, and removed DNA Stabilizers from the Market. Previously only the Nutrio Incubator Upgrade Segment could eliminate DNA degradation. No more Stability or Loyalty degrading!

Hotfix 30.3.4 (2021-06-02)

  • Fixed incorrect head and tail coloring when previewing a Kavat Skin while having an incompatible pet type equipped.

Hotfix 30.3.3 (2021-05-28)

  • Fixed inconsistent placement and type of Emblems while using Kavat Armor.

Update 29.5 (2020-11-19)

Hotfix 28.0.6 (2020-06-24)

  • Fixed Vasca Kavat babies having broken textures when previewing in the Arsenal.

Update 28.0 (2020-06-11)

Pet Companion Stasis Removal

All Stasis slots have been converted into Companion slots. All your Kubrows and Kavats are now listed upon equipping a Companion in the Arsenal!

Due to no longer having Stasis, if you currently have a pup Companion (not yet Matured), upon equipping it in the Arsenal the UI will prompt you to either Mature or let it roam your Orbiter. The option to let it roam is only available if you don't have a proper Kubrow/Kavat equipped. When starting an Incubation your current roaming Companion will be put away.

  • The ‘Nutrio Incubator Update Segment’ now entirely disables DNA degradation!
  • The Pets Breed is now displayed beside the Pets name in the description when viewing in the Arsenal.

Hotfix 27.5.4 (2020-05-20)

  • Fixed another case of the Vasca Curative not working on Kavats.

Hotfix 27.5.2 (2020-05-13)

  • Fixed Kavats being re-infected with Vasca after being cured and then completing a mission with said Kavat.

Update 27.4 (2020-05-01)

  • You can now customize your Kavat’s Emissive color, which will affect their tail and eye color.
  • This option also fixes not being able to change the color of the fan-like Kavat tails due to it being based on energy color.
  • Fixed the Kavat Starter Pack only giving 1x Kavat Genetic Code instead of the intended 10x. This also fixed purchasing Kavat Genetic Codes from the Kavat Starter Pack only giving 1x, when the UI indicated 10x.
    • We removed the ability to purchase them in the bundle to prevent this issue, but they can still be purchased individually in the in-game Market outside of the bundle.

Update 27.3 (2020-03-24)

Hotfix 27.0.10 (2020-01-11)

  • Fixed Kavat Companion Emblems being equipped on the wrong side.

Update 26.0 (2019-10-31)

  • Each Kavat can now give you 3 Imprints (up from 2). This will apply to all Kavats that predate this update. If you’ve already used 2, you'll find 1 more ready to go!

Hotfix (2019-09-05)

  • When previewing Kubrow/Kavat Armor that cannot be equipped on your current Kubrow/Kavat (Hyekka, Moonless, etc) it will now display the compatible Kubrow/Kavat Skin.

Update 25.7 (2019-08-29)

  • Fixed previewing Kubrow Armor in the Market with a Kavat active resulting in the default preview Kubrow’s fur clipping through the Armor.
  • Fixed being able to collide with Kavats in the Orbiter.

Hotfix 25.2.3 (2019-06-25)

Hotfix 24.5.7 (2019-03-28)

Pet Incubator Changes

Pets no longer suffer negative effects from a lack of Loyalty or Integrity! Integrity and Loyalty are now strictly a bonus on top of your Pet’s base Health and Damage. This also removes the function of auto-Stasis when Loyalty and Integrity hits 0, at which your Pet will just simply not have a bonus and continue to live peacefully. The Pet Incubator has undergone many changes, and these are small steps in a larger plan to simplify this system for a more streamlined structure.

Hotfix 24.1.1 (2018-11-23)

  • Fixed Kubrow and Kavat Companions sometimes attacking/using abilities on animals.

Hotfix 24.0.9 (2018-11-21)

    • Cat’s Eye - Adarza Kavat grants increased critical chance to all nearby Tenno for a short duration.
    • Reflect – Reflects damage back at attackers with increased lethality.
