Orokin elites admired farmers in conquered regions, because they had learned to fight with modified farming tools despite being forbidden to own weapons. For their voyage, the Zariman were presented with Praedos in recognition of Zariman tenacity. The Void reinforces the strength of the spirited individual by fortifying the Praedos.

Praedos is an Incarnon ceremonial tonfa. Accumulating 5x Melee Combo and then executing a Heavy Attack transforms the weapon to increase its range and attack speed.


  • This weapon deals primarily DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.
  • Once Incarnon Form is unlocked, the weapon can enter its Incarnon Form by gaining a 5x Melee Combo and then performing a Heavy Attack on an enemy, increasing its melee attack range by 2 meters and attack speed by 40% for 90 seconds. This duration can not be refreshed.
  • Grants a 20% Bullet Jump bonus when held (i.e. melee mode or quick melee).


  • Normal Attack
    • High attack speed


  • Normal Attack
    • Below average status chance

Praedos' main blueprint is purchased from Cavalero of The Holdfasts at Rank 4 - Seraph for ReputationBlackx64.png 9,000 Standing. The blueprint can be traded.

  • If an Incarnon Form is successfully achieved, Praedos will depict itself exuding a turquoise aura. The skin in this state is shared across all tonfas skins.
  • To access new Incarnon evolution tiers and change perks, players must visit Cavalero at the Chrysalith with their selected Incarnon weapon equipped. Players can only select one perk per Evolution tier, which can be changed at no cost.


  • When newly acquired from the Foundry, players must acquire 100 kills with the Praedos in order to gain access to its Incarnon transformation. The following Evolution tiers, their requirements for unlocking them, and their related perks, are shown below;
  • Evolution I: Kill 100 enemies with the Praedos
    • Incarnon Form: Reach 5x Combo and then Heavy Attack to activate Incarnon Form
      • Incarnon Form increases the weapon's attack range by 2 meters and attack speed by 40% for 90 seconds.

        • Bonuses are additive to respective mods.
      • When the transformation is ready, the combo counter will shimmer with Void energy.
      • Incarnon Form persists through all activities, such as holstering, bleedout, or being disarmed. However, Incarnon Form is removed upon death.
  • Evolution II: Activate Incarnon Form 6 times in a mission
    • Refreshing the duration will not count toward the challenge.
