Magus Lockdown is an Arcane Enhancement for the Operator. Whenever the Operator performs a Void Dash, they will drop a Tether Mine at their destination that tethers a number of enemies in place for 4 seconds; then, these enemies suffer Puncture b Puncture damage that scales with their maximum health.


Rank  % Health Tether range Max targets
0 15% 3m 2
1 30% 6m 4
2 45% 9m 6
3 60% 12m 8


Can be bought from Vox Solaris (Syndicate) for ReputationLargeBlack10,000 upon reaching the rank of Instrument.


  • Tethered enemies are completely incapacitated: they cannot move nor attack until they take damage from the arcane's effect.
    • The tether's damage does not ignore armor.
    • Unaware enemies that become tethered remain unaware until the effect wears off, similarly to RhinoStomp130xDark Rhino Stomp.
  • Can be used with MagusRevert64x Magus Revert to drop tether mines without consuming energy from Void Dashing.
    • Note that the use of macros to aid, expedite or automate this process is strictly prohibited.
    • Note that while Magus Lockdown has no cooldown, MagusRevert64x Magus Revert has a 3-second cooldown.
  • Assassination targets can be affected.
  • Enemies remain susceptible to ragdolling even while tethered which can make enemies not take damage if they fall outside the arcane's range.
  • Each tether mine can only affect up to a certain number of enemies.
    • Additional mines can only be placed once the previous mines have expired.
  • The damage applied is based on the target's current maximum health at the time the tether expires. As a result, a Viral b Viral proc will make the arcane deal damage based on the halved health value.
  • Two sets of this arcane will drop two tethers, effectively applying 120% of an enemy's health as Puncture b Puncture damage.
  • Buffs that are applied to the Operator or the Warframe will not enhance the damage, however, debuffs applied to enemies (e.g. MolecularPrime130xDark Molecular Prime, BlazingChakram130xDark Blazing Chakram, SeekingTalons130xDark Seeking Talonswill enhance damage.
  • Can tether Eidolons and Kuva clouds. 
  • The tether's color matches the Operator's chosen energy color.


  • Synergizes with MagusDestruct64x Magus Destruct which will increase the puncture damage dealt to tethered enemies.


  • Despite the arcane's description stating that there is a limit to the amount of enemies the tether mine can affect at a time, a single mine will actually tether all enemies in range.
  • Status procs that displace enemies will allow enemies to shoot at players while still tethered.
  • Clients are sometimes unable to place mines.
