Power Carriers are special units found only on Excavation and Defection missions. These units are mostly identical to their standard base units, though they feature greatly improved health, and visibly carry PowerCell.png Power Cells on their backs. Killing these units will make them drop the PowerCell.png Power Cells they carry, allowing Tenno to recover them for use in powering their Excavation machines or Med Towers. The Grineer version are based off Lancers, the Corpus version are based off Crewmen, and the Infested ones are based off Mutalist Ospreys.


Notes[edit | edit source]

  • They don't serve any purpose to their respective faction, as they don't seem to require anything to be powered.
  • A Hellion variant first appeared in the Shifting Sands Tactical Alert, and can currently be found on Excavation missions on Mars. Apart from its ability to use its jetpack and fire missile barrages, this variant also uses a Lato.pngLato instead of the standard Grakata when airborne. Unlike normal Hellions, the Hellion Power Carrier prefers to use its Lato when attacking, and will rarely use its missile launchers.
  • Unlike their regular counterparts, Mutalist Osprey Carriers cannot use charge attacks, they fire infested spores instead, like Attack Mutalists.
  • Power Carriers are affected by loot while alive (IvaraIcon272.pngIvara's Prowl130xDark.pngProwl), loot corpse (NekrosIcon272.pngNekros's Desecrate130xDark.pngDesecrate and Chesa Kubrow's Mod TT 20px.pngRetrieve), loot while petrified (AtlasIcon272.pngAtlas's Mod TT 20px.pngOre Gaze), and loot on death (HydroidIcon272.pngHydroid's Mod TT 20px.pngPilfering Swarm, KhoraIcon272.pngKhora's Mod TT 20px.pngPilfering Strangledome, and WukongIcon272.pngWukong's Monkey Luck passive) in order to gain more than one PowerCell.png Power Cell from the enemy.
  • The Mutalist Osprey Carrier was buffed in Update: Specters of the Rail, allowing the enemy to aggressively rush the excavator and now has the ability to fire it's weapon in bursts. One of these power carriers can destroy an excavator in just a few shots if left unchecked. The only way they stop firing is if they are captured in Bastille130xDark.pngBastille as well, otherwise they will fire at players and the excavators even if blinded. Also immune to DmgSlashSmall64.pngSlash procs.
