Desired by advanced players, Loki offers a variety of specialized reconfiguring abilities. The creativity of Loki's powers allows players to master the battlefield through manipulation.

This is Loki, the trickster, the deceiver.

Whether you prefer to go into battle alone or with a team, Tenno, Loki will adapt to any style.

Release Date: October 25th, 2012

Loki is a fragile but fast manipulator Warframe. He has little in the way of direct damage abilities, instead focusing on the arts of distraction, deception, sabotage, relocation and stealth.

Acquisition

Loki's main blueprint can be purchased from the Market. Loki's component blueprints can be obtained from defeating the Hyena Pack on Psamathe, Neptune.
Item Source Chance Expected Nearly Guaranteed
Helmet.png Neuroptics Blueprint Hyena Pack Assassination 38.72% ~ 2 Kills 14 ± 4 Kills
Chassis.png Chassis Blueprint Hyena Pack Assassination 38.72% ~ 2 Kills 14 ± 4 Kills
Systems.png Systems Blueprint Hyena Pack Assassination 22.56% ~ 4 Kills 27 ± 9 Kills

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)

Notes

Trivia

  • During Closed Beta, where all available Warframes used to have three abilities, his ability set was: Decoy130xDark.png Decoy, Invisibility130xDark.png Invisibility and SwitchTeleport130xDark.png Switch Teleport.
  • His name is drawn from the Norse god Loki, who was generally seen as a mischievous, sly trickster. The Loki Warframe has abilities that further strengthen this connection, as Loki is able to turn invisible and create decoys of himself, amongst other abilities.
  • For a while during Closed Beta, Switch Teleport could be used on the Defense cryopod, allowing players to move it across the map or into significantly more defensible and advantageous positions - including locations the AI (especially for the Infested at the time) could not reach. This was ultimately fixed in Update 5.4.
  • Prior to Update 14, Loki was one of the three starting Warframes, along with ExcaliburIcon272.png Excalibur and MagIcon272.png Mag, before being replaced by VoltIcon272.png Volt.
  • The Orokin script on his thigh reads "148-H Tenno Model 2100N Serial 148-H ".
  • Loki's default helmet (along with the default helmets of ExcaliburIcon272.png Excalibur and ChromaIcon272.png Chroma) are available as unlockable antenna toppers in Rocket League.
  • In the opening cinematic of The Second Dream quest, the Stalker is seen dropping a Loki helmet on the ground next to Hunhow.

Vaultings

Notes

  • Loki Prime, compared to LokiIcon272.png Loki:
    • Higher Armor (125 vs. 100)
    • Higher Energy (175/262 vs. 150/225)
    • Different Polarities (Vazarin Pol.svgVazarin Pol.svgMadurai Pol.svgNaramon Pol.svg vs. Vazarin Pol.svgMadurai Pol.svg)
  • As a Prime Warframe, Loki Prime possesses a special passive ability where contact with an Orokin Void Death Orb will make them release an energy pulse that grants 250 Energy to all nearby allies. This effect can only occur once per Death Orb, and can occur even if the Death Orb has been previously destroyed.
  • Loki Prime has an emblem situated on his chest at his left that resembles the Grand Master sigil. It also appears that this emblem moves on a different degree than Loki himself, as various movements change the emblem's position.
    • So far, only Loki Prime has shown to wear this emblem.
  • Loki Prime, along with Loki, has the second fastest sprint speed at 1.25, with GaussIcon272.png Gauss having the fastest at 1.4.
  • Loki Prime, along with Banshee PrimeIcon272.png Banshee Prime, Nova PrimeIcon272.png Nova Prime, Oberon PrimeIcon272.png Oberon Prime and IvaraIcon272.png Ivara, has the second highest amount of energy (175 base, 262.5 at max rank), with Chroma PrimeIcon272.png Chroma Prime, Volt PrimeIcon272.png Volt Prime, Saryn PrimeIcon272.png Saryn Prime, Ivara PrimeIcon272.png Ivara Prime, BaruukIcon272.png Baruuk, and WispIcon272.png Wisp having the highest (200 base, 300 at max rank).

Trivia

  • Loki Prime's Decoy130xDark.png Decoy uses a LexPrime.png Lex Prime instead of a Lato.png Lato like the standard version, making it the third ability to be modified for the Prime version.
    • Curiously his Decoy fires the Lex Prime much faster than the Lex Prime's default fire rate.
  • The sixth Prime Warframe to be released, Loki Prime is also the third to have the Orokin white and gold default color scheme after Excalibur PrimeIcon272.png Excalibur Prime and Mag PrimeIcon272.png Mag Prime. Incidentally, all three Warframes were the starting Warframe options for new players, Loki having now been replaced with Volt, whose primed version does not contain the white and gold color scheme.

Decoy
Loki deploys a holographic copy of himself, drawing enemy fire.
Strength:N/A
Duration:7 / 15 / 20 / 25 s
Range:N/A
Misc:100 m (cast range)
400 SP (Decoy shields)
200 HP (Decoy health)
? % (physical status chances)
1 (limit of decoys)
Subsumable to Helminth

Info
  • Loki creates a holographic decoy within a range of 100 meters at the location on the aiming reticle. With heightened Threat Level, 400 Shield and 200 Health points, the decoy will draw enemy fire and last for a maximum of 7 / 15 / 20 / 25 seconds or until destroyed by enemy attacks.
    • Decoy duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Cast range, Decoy's shield capacity and total health are not affected by mods.
    • Wielding a Lato.png Lato (LexPrime.png Lex Prime in Loki PrimeIcon272.png Loki Prime's case), the decoy is capable of inflicting an DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact proc that can stagger enemies, a DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture proc that reduces the damage of the target's attacks by 30% for 6 seconds, and a DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash proc that deals a minuscule 1 damage per tick.
    • Aside from the mentioned status effects, the decoy's shots do not inflict damage.
    • Deploying a decoy while one is already active will remove the previous decoy from the field.
    • If enough damage is done to the decoy, it will collapse and disappear.
  • If aimed at a ceiling or the sky, the decoy will appear directly below the aimed point, allowing it to be placed in higher platforms.
  • If placed in a position where enemies cannot reach:
    • Within a few seconds Infested enemies will swap their aggro to another target.
    • Grineer and Corpus enemies will keep trying to aim at the Decoy until it disappears even if they cannot see or hit it, making it extremely effective if placed in good cover against enemy fire.
  • Decoy has a tendency to fall through certain props on the map. This means a decoy can be placed on top of something, for example: a pillar, and it will sometimes fall through it, being protected from within the prop.
  • Decoy's shields regenerate over time.
  • Has a cast time of ~0.6 seconds.
  • Subsuming Loki to the Helminth will offer Decoy and its augments to be used by other Warframes.

1 25% 7
2 37.5% 8

Tips & Tricks
  • Enemies will focus on the decoy if it is deployed closer to them than Loki is, allowing Loki to deal heavy damage or escape an area without being targeted.
  • Decoy's defenses do not increase at higher levels or with Ability Strength, making it very weak at high levels if not placed in cover.
  • Decoy130xDark.png Decoy can be used in conjunction with SwitchTeleport130xDark.png Switch Teleport, essentially allowing teleportation to any point where Decoy can be placed. It should be noted that sometimes there is no switch and loki is just teleporting close to decoy, so careful placing is required sometimes.
  • The hologram blocks lasers from Laser Barriers, allowing passage through when deployed directly on top of them (as they only emit from one side).
  • Decoy can be used as means to find or lure out hiding enemies.
    • The copy will only start firing its Lato if there is an enemy close enough to be attracted, but it will not stop firing once all affected enemies are dead. Keep this in mind when using Decoy to scout enemy locations.
  • Can also be used to hold doors open, which can be useful when the following area is full of enemies, allowing players to engage them from a safer distance.
  • LimboIcon272.png Limbo can put the decoy in the rift, making it completely invincible against enemies not also in the rift, although this eliminates its ability to apply procs on enemies.
  • Can obtain bonus shielding from Shield Osprey Specters, adding some shielding while increasing the shield recharge rate and delay of the decoy. The Specter will also automatically prioritize targets like Decoy to protect, just like it will prioritize following other specters. Note that the osprey is terribly weak, and the decoy will attract heavy fire, making the possibility of the specter dying quickly much higher.

Invisibility
Loki camouflages himself, becoming invisible to enemies.
Strength:N/A
Duration:5 / 7 / 9 / 12 s
Range:N/A

Info
  • Loki camouflages himself, turning transparent and rendering him invisible to enemies for 5 / 7 / 9 / 12 seconds. While Loki is invisible, all sound effects are muffled and slightly muted. Loki's vision becomes blurry when he's not in motion, and his visual field becomes more sensitive to light.
  • Has a cast delay of 0.75 seconds.
  • Cannot be recast while active.

Augment
HushedInvisibility.png
Main article: Hushed Invisibility

Hushed Invisibility is a Warframe Augment Mod for LokiIcon272.png Loki's Invisibility130xDark.png Invisibility that allows it to reduce the noise level of weapons fired.


Rank Noise Reduction Cost
0 50% 6
1 65% 7
2 80% 8
3 100% 9

Tips & Tricks
  • Use as a way of reviving fallen players without having to worry about entering bleedout yourself. Be wary of other revivers though, they will draw fire on you.
  • Can be cast in mid-air, which can help you avoid getting gunned down by large crowds during the cast animation, which makes you stay put when used on the ground.
  • Changing Loki's energy color to "pure black" (very bottom left color in the Smoke Colors pack) will turn Loki completely invisible, meaning this color gets rid of the shimmering effect.
    • As this means you can't see yourself at all, this can make movement and placement for melee attacks more difficult.
    • It can be a way in order to take a clear picture if you disable HUD.
  • As general rule when playing with others – mind your positioning, flank enemies, keep your distance from allies, and never stay in the line of fire between allies and enemies.
  • Since it is not a channeled ability, energy can be regenerated while it is active, meaning Mod TT 20px.png Energy Siphon and TrinityIcon272.png Trinity's EnergyVampire130xDark.png Energy Vampire can provide high uptime.

Bugs
  • If active before a boss cut-scene triggers, when the cut-scene finishes Loki will become visible however the duration will not reset.
  • Kubrows will be cloaked but will still be targeted by enemies.
  • Loki's body (but not the head) may become visible on occasion. Enemies will be able to detect you when this occurs, and the invisibility time will continue to run.

    Switch Teleport
    Loki instantaneously swaps positions with a target, confusing the enemy.
    Strength:N/A
    Duration:N/A
    Range:25 / 40 / 60 / 75 m

    Info
    • Loki swaps positions with a target within 25 / 40 / 60 / 75 meters, whether it be friendly or hostile. Switching positions with an enemy will cause it to become confused for a brief duration. The enemy will not attack until it reorients itself.
      • Cast range is affected by Ability Range.
      • Confusion will not apply to boss-type enemies.
      • Switch Teleport also swaps the directions Loki and the target were facing.
    • If attempting to Switch Teleport a unit to an out-of-bounds location, Loki will simply teleport to them instead.
    • Requires direct line of sight. Slightly changing position sometimes can re-enable otherwise invalid target.
    • Can be used in the air.
    • Has a cast time of 0.5 seconds.
    • Grineer Commanders use a similar ability, stunning Tenno for a short moment.

    Main article: Safeguard Switch

    1 4s 7
    2 5s 8
    3 6s 9

    Tips & Tricks
    • Switch Teleport can be used on:
      • Enemies (including Bosses, excluding Lephantis)
      • Corpses and gibs (they tend to teleport to a place of death, without switching).
      • Teammates (teammates cannot be switched from active extraction zone)
      • Decoys created by yourself, a fellow Loki, or a SarynIcon272.png Saryn's Molt130xDark.png Molt.
    • Unlike AshIcon272.png Ash, Loki is unable to teleport to objects.
    • You can easily move past a group of enemies by targeting the enemy furthest away, Switch teleporting, and then continuing to run.
    • Switch Teleport can be used to easily bypass laser barriers and similar traps within Spy vaults, by casting Decoy in the desired location and then switch-teleporting to it. Decoy itself will not set off laser traps, though it can potentially alert enemies within the vault, causing them to set off the alarm.
    • Switch Teleport also works on allies who are bleeding out, allowing the transportation of them to a safer area out of the way of enemies if necessary.
    • Can be used on Dargyn Pilots on the Plains of Eidolon to instantly steal Tusk Dargyns.

    Radial Disarm
    Lets forth a wave of energy, disrupting the projectile weapons of enemies in range and forcing them to revert to melee combat.
    Strength:200 / 200 / 350 / 500 DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact
    Duration:
    Range:10 / 13 / 17 / 20 m

    Info
    • Radial Disarm does not prevent enemies from using special abilities which are neither a gun or melee attack. This includes abilities such as the spinning laser attack of a sentient, the grenades thrown by Corpus/Grineer, Grineer ground slams, Ancient grappling hooks, etc. (Note: most special abilities can be disabled by using Silence)
    • The Zanuka Hunter, the Grustrag Three, and bosses can not be disarmed.
    • Permanently depletes the weapon systems on MOAs, forcing them to melee with kicks.
    • When used on Sentient enemies such as a Battalyst, the gun section on each arm will visibly fall to the ground. Many sentients do not possess a melee attack, so they will just hover around; their spin/laser attack is a special ability so they will still activate this unless silenced. After 20-30 seconds one of their gun sections will regenerate and they can begin to fire again, but subsequent casts of Radial Disarm will remove the new guns.
    • Has a cast time of 0.9 seconds and delay between uses of 0.9 seconds.

    Tips & Tricks
    • This ability is very effective if used with a Bastille130xDark.png Bastille on a Defense mission as players can maximize the amount of enemies disarmed.

    Bugs
  • Sometimes, if Radial Disarm is used on enemies that have already been affected by it, they won't be stunned like they normally should.
  • Rarely, using Irradiating Disarm on infested enemies coated in the Ancient Healer aura may cause none of the infested to take a DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation proc except the healer.
  • Casting Radial Disarm rapidly with Mod TT 20px.png Natural Talent can cause a 70 second cooldown.
