Knockdown is a Status Effect that causes enemies to be knocked prone to the ground, leaving them vulnerable to any attacks and Ground Finishers. A player's open Esc  menu will be abruptly closed if knocked down. After receiving a knockdown, inputting a jump will trigger a neutral getup, while directional keys will cause the Warframe to roll in that direction.

Right after being knocked down, the Warframe will flash in their energy colors briefly. Jumping or rolling during the flash will allow the Warframe to stand up or roll more quickly, allowing players to act earlier.

Knockdown and stagger animations will not be played when a player successfully resists a knockdown or stagger. Knockdown resistance can be obtained through any of the means mentioned in the section on sources of knockdown resistance.
