For the Corpus enemy, see MOA.

Hey yeah! Need to equip your trip with companionship? Talk to Legs baby, the knowa and showa of primo MOA.

MOAs are terrain-restricted companions that can use ranged weapons or perform melee attacks. There are currently 4 MOA Models.

The Corpus-built MOA is the face of their robotic combat forces seen all throughout the Origin System. Their ubiquity means that several models of MOA are available for use by anyone, including Solaris United and by extension the Tenno. The merchant Legs found in Fortuna sells MOAs that Tenno can use as pets to assist them in missions.

As Companions, MOAs are unique in that they are built as a modular system, with players able to select from various combinations of four different components to create MOAs with stats and abilities to their liking. Once built, a MOA takes up one slot in the Robotic inventory. They can equip Robotic weapons, but do not come with their own weapon unlike Sentinels.

Similar to Kubrows and Kavats, MOAs can be given custom names for further personalization, once they are gilded, as well as being able to be revived once downed.

A MOA companion needs four different components to be built, the Model, the Core, the Gyro, and the Bracket. Each component type has several options to choose from, allowing to customize stats and the MOA's type and appearance.


The MOA's Model forms the machine's head, which acts as its gun turret when equipped with a Robotic weapon, and is the component that earns Mastery Rank points for the MOA after gilding. Each Model grants two unique Precept mods which can only be provided by that particular Model, though the Precepts can be used on any MOA once acquired. A maximum of two MOA-specific precepts can be equipped at the same time.


The Core determines the appearance of the MOA's rear, and modifies the base stats of the MOA.


The Gyro determines the appearance of the MOA's front, and modifies the base stats of the MOA.


Brackets refer to the MOA's legs, and determines the Mod Polarities that the MOA will have. All Brackets have four Penjaga Pol.svg polarities, with no other polarities on Drimper Bracket, and one additional polarity on Gauth (Naramon Pol.svg), Hona (Naramon Pol.svg), Jonsin (Madurai Pol.svg), and Tian (Vazarin Pol.svg) Brackets.


Before players can craft a MOA, they must first purchase the blueprints for the parts they desire from Legs, which is available for Standing, after which these parts must then be constructed at the Foundry.

Once the component parts have been crafted, players must return to Legs and select the Configure a MOA Companion option. Here, players must choose the crafted components they have available to form the MOA. Once a Model, Core, Gyro, and Bracket are selected, the player will be shown a preview of the MOA's appearance, along with the MOA's stats. If the MOA is satisfactory, players can then proceed with the Build MOA action, which will instantly craft the MOA for Credits64.png 4,000. Players can also use the Configure screen to preview builds of MOA components they do not yet own.

A newly built MOA cannot be renamed, customized, Polarized, equipped with a Focus Lens, or earn Mastery Rank experience. However, they can be equipped with an Orokin Reactor.

Once built, a MOA cannot be disassembled to return its components parts.


In order to fully unlock all of a MOA's features, players must gild their MOA. To gild a MOA, players must have a reputation rank of at least Doer with Solaris United, and the desired MOA must first be leveled up to Rank 30. Afterwards, players must return to Legs and select the Gild option under Other Services, which will cost 10 Training Debt-Bonds and ReputationBlackx64.png 5,000. Upon gilding the MOA, players will be asked to first add a Polarity to the MOA, and then finally give it a custom name. This process will reset the MOA's level back to Rank 0.

A Gilded MOA will have all of the functionality available to other companions, and it will have enhanced stats over the newly-built version of the MOA. A MOA will only give Mastery Rank points once gilded.

Visually, the Gilded MOA will have a modified appearance over a newly-built one.

  • The base values of a MOA companion are 100 Robotic Health, 100 Ferrite Armor, and 100 Shields, with components adding/subtracting from these values.
  • Possible stat ranges are 105-135 for Health, 90-125 for Shields and 100-125 for Armor.
  • The sum of all stats of a MOA will always add up to 320 for a non-gilded and 340 for a gilded one, regardless of chosen components.
  • Any multiplier from components is added flatly and is doubled upon gilding, (for example an overall +10.0% in one stat will make that stat 120 after gilding.)
  • Although numbers like 2.5% are rounded down in the UI, they are still taken into account in full when gilding.
  • The cheapest MOA (in terms of reputation cost) can be built at Rank 0: Neutral and will cost ReputationBlackx64.png 2,000 (Para Model, Drex Core, Trux Gyro, Drimper/Tian Bracket) while the most expensive can be built at Rank 4: Cove and will cost 7 times as much, ReputationBlackx64.png 14,000 (Nychus Model, Lehan Core, Atheca/Phazor Gyro, Hona Bracket).

  • Legs also sells fully assembled Gilded MOAs on his Today's Special option for Platinum64.png . The Model, Core, Gyro, and Bracket combinations on these MOAs are randomized daily.
  • MOAs have to be gilded to earn Mastery Rank points, with their progression tied to the MOA's Model alone. For example, if a player levels up a Gilded MOA crafted with the Lambeo Model to 30, any future MOAs forged using the Lambeo Model will no longer provide Mastery regardless of what combination of Cores, Gyros, and Brackets they have.
    • As there are four Models currently available, the maximum amount of Mastery Rank points that can be earned from MOA crafting is 24,000.
  • With 4 Models, 4 Cores, 8 Gyros, and 5 Brackets, there are currently a total of 640 possible MOA combinations available.
  • Custom names for MOAs have a 24 character limit including spaces, and will not accept special characters like commas (,) or apostrophes ('), though hyphens ( - ) are accepted.
    • Names can also not include any profanities such as swear words.
  • Rank 30 MOAs or Gilded MOAs can be donated to Legs in exchange for ReputationBlackx64.png 1,800 and ReputationBlackx64.png 3,600 Solaris United Standing respectively.
  • Typing [MOA] in the in-game chat and selecting the MOA will let other players in the same chat channel see its bonuses.
  • MOAs are considered "pets" for unlocking certain Riven Mods.
  • MOAs can be equipped with Companion and/or Robotic mods, some of which were formerly exclusive to other types of Companions:
  • A MOA with a Drex Core and an Atheca Gyro has the highest effective health (283 Gilded) of any unmodded MOA, and a MOA with a Krisys Core and an Aegron Gyro has the lowest effective health (259 Gilded) of any unmodded MOA, a difference of only 24 points.
  • Eight MOA Precept mods were released with the 4 MOA companions (each MOA Model, once used to build a MOA companion, comes with 2 specific Precept mods):
    • The Lambeo Model comes with the Mod TT 20px.png Shockwave Actuators and Mod TT 20px.png Stasis Field Precepts.
    • The Oloro Model comes with the Mod TT 20px.png Security Override and Mod TT 20px.png Tractor Beam Precepts.
    • The Para Model comes with Mod TT 20px.png Anti-Grav Grenade and Mod TT 20px.png Whiplash Mine Precepts.
    • The Nychus Model comes with the Mod TT 20px.png Blast Shield and Mod TT 20px.png Hard Engage Precepts.
    • Unlike the Precept mods obtained from other Companions, the Precepts obtained by building a MOA companion can be equipped on any MOA companion.
      • There is a separate limit to the installation of MOA-specific Precepts; instead of being limited to the MOA Model which each Precept came with, any given MOA companion may only equip up to 2 MOA-specific Precept mods at a time, although they may be changed at any time. (There is no limit on Precept mods which are not MOA-specific.)
  • There are 4 Emotion Modules (Aggressive, Inquisitive, Sensitive and Tenacious) that can be bought for Platinum64.png 50 each in the Market and equipped on a MOA in the appearance tab. These are like Warframe animation sets, purely cosmetic and do the following:
    • Give the MOA an occasional animation based on the chosen personality.
    • Change the sound the MOA makes.
    • Makes the MOA mirror the following player emotes: Agree, Disagree, Bow, Deep Bow, and Wave. They also have unique animations when the player performs certain Nartas.
  • After acquiring the first MOA, the player must have at least one MOA at any time. It's impossible to sell the last MOA in the inventory.
  • OberonIcon272.png Oberon's passive has no effect on MOAs.


  • MOA Companions and K-Drives are the first modular equipment that:
  • All of the original MOA models are named after certain genera of Hadrosaurid dinosaurs: Oloro is named after the Olorotitan, Lambeo is named after Lambeosaurus, and Para is named after Parasaurolophus.
    • The Nychus model introduced in the Deadlock Protocol update is named after a theropod, Deinonychus .
  • The MOAs are the first companion to mirror player behavior. It will crouch and walk crouched along with the player, as well as mirroring some emotes if an Emotion Module is installed.
  • The idea of MOA Companions is not Digital Extremes' original idea, and has its roots with player demand throughout the Warframe community such as the official forums. This was acknowledged in TennoCon 2018.
