Rank Chance Effect Duration

2 75% 22.5% 3
3 100% 30% 4


Can be bought from Rude Zuud for ReputationBlackx6410,000. Unlike most other arcanes, Pax arcanes come fully built from the vendor.


  • Channeled Abilities (e.g., WorldOnFire130xDark World On Fire, ExaltedBlade130xDark Exalted Blade) which are activated while the Ability Strength buff is active will keep the bonus as long as they're kept active, even if the buff duration is finished.
  • The Ability Strength and Ability Efficiency gained is additive with other mods. For example, a Warframe equipped with maxed Intensify and receives a Rank 3 Pax Bolt buff would have +60% Ability Strength.
  • While Channeled Abilities are active, subsequent Pax Bolt buff can reduce the channeling cost for the duration of the buff. Whether this is intentional or not is unknown.
  • Similar to other headshot kill conditions, the enemy must be killed by a headshot through weapon damage, and not any damage-over-time status effect such as Slash b Slash.
    • Pax bolt can still trigger with headshot kills from Dex Pixia (likely a bug), as well as the Kitgun itself.
  • Note that Ability Efficiency still caps out at 75% even with the arcane equipped.


  • Inscription on Pax Bolt is Solari Language, reading "BAWLT" forming the sound "Bolt".
