Molecular Conversion is a precept mod for the Taxon Sentinel that allows it to attack enemies within 10 meters with a beam that deals Radiation b Radiation damage, and converts the damage it deals into Shields for the Warframe.

3 125 5
4 150 6
5 200 7


  • The amount of Shields created is calculated after taking into account damage modifiers.
  • Molecular Conversion will create Overshields for the Warframe if its shield restoration exceeds the amount of shields that the Warframe has lost.
    • The overshields stack as long as the player doesn't take damage to their overshields in excess to the shields granted.
    • This stacking has an upper limit — 6 times the listed capacity. This is 1,200 overshields at max rank.
  • It has a cooldown of about 12 seconds between uses.
  • The beam can inflict Radiation b Radiation's Status Effect.
  • Activates from Stealth, but only if target is already alerted.
  • Does not work on InarosIcon272 Inaros or NidusIcon272 Nidus, as they do not have shields.
  • Enemies killed by the beam are disintegrated.


  • Consider placing this mod at the upper-left mod slot so that Taxon can prioritize its use.
