The Kuva Seer is the Kuva variant of the Seer, with higher damage, critical chance, critical multiplier, status chance, fire rate, and reload speed, but with a significant drop to ammo reserves. It also uniquely fires Corrosive projectiles that burst on contact.
Acquisition[edit | edit source]
While the weapon itself is not tradeable, a converted Kuva Lich generated with the weapon can be traded to another player. The trade is performed inside a Clan Dojo's Crimson Branch room, and the recipient must not have any active Lich. Once traded, the recipient must fight and vanquish the Lich to claim its weapon.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
- Innate Corrosive damage – effective against Ferrite Armor and Fossilized.
- High Puncture damage – effective against armor.
- High critical chance.
- Very high status chance.
- Shots explode in a 2.3 meter radius upon impact with a surface or enemy.
- High zoom, excellent for long range.
- Very fast projectile speed.
- Can benefit from Fulmination.
- Polarizing the weapon increases its max rank by 2, capping at rank 40 after 5 polarizations, granting the weapon additional mod capacity.
- Comes with an additional bonus Impact, Heat, Cold, Electricity, Toxin, Magnetic, or Radiation damage, based on the Kuva Lich's progenitor Warframe.
- Innate Corrosive damage – less effective against Proto Shields.
- Low Impact damage – less effective against shields.
- Below average critical multiplier.
- Fairly slow reload speed.
- Projectiles have travel time.
- Explosion inflicts self-stagger.
- Explosion has linear damage falloff from 100% to 70% from central impact.
- Extremely low ammo capacity; requires just 3 reloads to fully deplete all ammo reserves.
- High zoom capabilities can make zooming in at close range a hindrance.
- High zoom amplifies perceived recoil when aiming.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- As with all Kuva weapons, the player does not have to meet the Mastery Rank displayed to obtain this weapon. It can simply be claimed from the foundry after the Kuva Lich carrying it has been vanquished.
- The weapon will have a prefix of the name of the Kuva Lich it was acquired from (e.g. Odizrigg Agekk Kuva Seer).
- The weapon's max rank caps at 40 after 5 polarizations (max rank increases by 2 per Forma added).
- Additional polarizations can be added when the weapon reaches its new max rank at that polarization level.
- Each additional rank also gives Mastery Rank Experience, giving 4,000 points in total.
- Mod capacity scales with the additional ranks, and can reach a total of 80 at rank 40 with an Orokin Catalyst installed.
- Without an Orokin Catalyst, the max is 40. Combined with the five polarized mod slots required to reach that point, an Orokin Catalyst might not be required to finish modding the Kuva Seer.
- After polarizing a weapon, any additional mod capacity above 30 (60 with an Orokin Catalyst) will not take effect until the weapon's rank reaches 31 and above.
- Comes with an additional bonus damage stat, dependent on the Warframe that summoned the Lich.
