Acquisition[]

  • The Rakta Cernos can be acquired by reaching the Rank of Exalted with the Red Veil, and spending ReputationBlackx64.png 125,000 to purchase. As with all Syndicate Weapons, the Rakta Cernos cannot be chosen as the free offering upon ranking up to Exalted rank.
  • Syndicate weapons can also be acquired via Trading, but only for unranked copies without Forma and Orokin Catalyst installed.
  • Players must have a Mastery Rank of at least 12 to acquire the Rakta Cernos, either through trading or through the Syndicates themselves.

Notes[]

  • Has a unique holster style where the bow is upside down on the Warframe's back instead of being slung across its shoulder.

Trivia[]

  • The word "Rakta" can be traced back to the Sanskrit language, meaning "blood" or "coloured". It means the same in many other Indic languages derived from Sanskrit / Prakrit - like Marathi, Hindi etc.
