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

Legs

MOAs are terrain-restricted companions that can use ranged weapons or perform melee attacks. Reviving MOAs in missions is similar to reviving allied Tenno. MOAs require no maintenance. 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 weapon, 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.

ModelEdit

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.

CoreEdit

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

GyroEdit

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

BracketEdit

Brackets refer to the MOA's legs, and determines the Mod Polarities that the MOA will have. All Brackets have four Penjaga Pol polarities, with no other polarities on Drimper Bracket, and one additional polarity on Gauth (Naramon Pol), Jonsin (Madurai Pol), and Tian (Vazarin Pol) 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 weapon. 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 Credits644,000. 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, upgraded with an Orokin Catalyst, equipped with a Focus Lens, have Exodia Arcanes installed, or earn Mastery Rank experience.

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

GildingEdit

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 2 Training Debt-Bonds and ReputationLargeBlack5,000. 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 weapons, and it will have enhanced stats over the newly-built version of the MOA. Gilded MOAs are also able to earn Mastery Rank points.

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

  • By default a MOA companion has 100 Robotic Health, 100 Ferrite Armor, and 100 Shields.
  • 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.)
  • Numbers like 2.5% are rounded down in the UI but still taken into account when gilding.
  • Possible stat ranges are 105-135 for Health, 90-125 for Shields and 100-125 for Armor.
  • The cheapest MOA can be built at Rank 0: Neutral and will cost ReputationLargeBlack2,000 (Para Model, Drex Core, Trux Gyro, Drimper/Tian Bracket) while the most expensive can be built at Rank 4: Cove and will cost 5 times as much, ReputationLargeBlack10,000 (Oloro Model, Alcrom Core, Atheca/Phazor Gyro, Gauth Bracket).

NotesEdit

  • Legs also sells fully assembled Gilded MOAs on his Today's Special option for Platinum64‍. 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 Solaris United Standing.
  • 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:
  • Six MOA Precept mods were released with the original 3 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 20pxShockwave Actuators and Mod TT 20pxStasis Field Precepts.
    • The Oloro Model comes with the Mod TT 20pxSecurity Override and Mod TT 20pxTractor Beam Precepts.
    • The Para Model comes with Mod TT 20pxAnti-Grav Grenade and Mod TT 20pxWhiplash Mine Precepts.
    • Unlike the Precept mods obtained from other Companions -- Kubrows, Kavats, and Sentinels -- the Precept mods 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 3 Emotion Modules (Aggressive, Inquisitive and Sensitive) that can be bought for Platinum6450 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.
  • MOAs share Robotic inventory slots with Sentinels and Robotic weapons.
    • 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 Oberon's passive has no effect on MOAs.

TriviaEdit

  • 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.
