Notes[]

  • Each tick and the final explosion can damage and proc status independently.
  • Tendrils do not require line of sight to latch onto enemies, but cannot pull enemies through walls.
  • Will not pull or damage enemies inside a Nullifier bubble. Will deal damage to the bubble on the arrow hit and on explosion, but not on pre-explosion damage ticks. This is the case whether firing outside the bubble or from within the bubble.
  • Thunderbolt12?cb=20190608095452 Thunderbolt causes the arrow to explode immediately after landing.
  • Firestorm12?cb=20190608095452 Firestorm only affects the radius of the final blast, and does not increase the range of appendages.

Tips[]

  • Because of the weapon's appendages pulling enemies into a cluster, it synergizes extremely well with Warframe ability augment mods that require enemies within the said abilities' area-of-effect to trigger, such as Spectrosiphon12?cb=20190608095452 Spectrosiphon and Pilfering Swarm12?cb=20190608095452 Pilfering Swarm.
  • Good primary weapon choice for Specters, because of its crowd control abilities and high base damage.
  • Can be used to pull enemies into XakuXakuIcon272.png Xaku's Gaze to ensure their armor is reduced (or removed) before the explosion takes place.

Trivia[]

  • A Proboscis is the elongated, tube-like mouthpart on insects like butterflies, mosquitoes, etc.
