People of the Origin System,

With the blessing of your credits and the power of the Void’s sacred energy, I have built a creature stronger than any other. Yes, my children, the Void has made my new Razorback prototype impervious to evil and I will prove it. I am calling on all Tenno, heathen Corpus and Grineer to come to my lab and try to defeat my Razorback.

And when you fail, the whole System will see the Void works its power through me. And then they will know that the only path to salvation is to Give Unto The Void.

The Void be the word, and the word be Profit.
—Inbox message from Nef Anyo during Divine Will Tactical Alert

The Razorback is a Corpus boss introduced in the Divine Will Tactical Alert in Hotfix 18.4.10 (2016-02-11). A creation of Nef Anyo, the Razorback is essentially a much larger Jackal and is boastfully claimed to be "impervious to evil", but possesses a vulnerability to Nef Anyo's previous creations: the Bursas.

The Razorback is fought during a limited-time event, called Razorback Armada, once the construction status in the Invasion menu is completed by supporting the Corpus, appearing as a node next to any active Relay. Completing the Razorback Armada mission three times per event awards Credits64.png 200,000 and a built Orokin Catalyst.

Razorback Cipher[]

Razorback Armada progress meter

Once the Razorback Armada node appears, the Lotus will send all players an inbox message about the Razorback threat and deliver a Razorback Cipher Blueprint in their inventory. All players are required to have a Razorback Cipher to enter the node. The Razorback's room is locked by a hacking terminal whose panels continuously shift, making it impossible to solve without the Cipher. Although only one person can interact with the terminal to use the Cipher, all players will consume a Cipher upon use.

The Cipher Blueprint is reusable, and requires:

Manufacturing Requirements
Time: 1 min
Rush: N/A
MarketIcon.png Market Price: N/A Blueprint2.svg Blueprints Price: N/A

Cryptographic ALU is exclusive to Archwing and Railjack missions over Jupiter and Neptune, and can only be found during the course of the Razorback Armada event.


The Razorback bears a striking resemblance to the Jackal, but stands roughly twice its size and has a white sheen and bulky leggings.

The Razorback, like other bosses, has unique taunts. Here is a list of them:

  • "Analysis Complete: (Player name) = UNBELIEVER"
  • "(Player name) Detected: May the Void take mercy upon you"
  • "Configuring Tactics: PRAISE THE VOID"
  • "(Player name) Victory Probability: UNFATHOMABLE"


  • Turret: Two cheek-mounted turrets fire volley of machine gunfire.
  • Rippling Shockwave: Stomps the ground with its massive legs, producing a shockwave that knocks Tenno off their feet.
  • Plasma Grenade Cluster: Deposits a volley of plasma grenades that shortly explode after sticking to the ground.
  • Homing Missiles: Launches a large cluster of missiles that home-in on the Tenno.

Along the four corners of the upper balconies of the arena guarded by a Laser Barrier spawn Corpus soldiers, who will drop down into the arena to support the Razorback.


After activating the terminal to "Warning Test", the platform in the middle will rise to unveil the Razorback.

The Razorback behaves much like the Jackal, with key differences: it is initially immune to all damage the players can throw at it. To damage the Razorback, players must hack into the two terminals located on the sides of the upper balconies of the arena, which will spawn a Bursa, which are hostile to the Tenno. The Bursa must then be damaged and then hacked to turn them against the Razorback, which will cripple its legs and cause it to collapse, allowing Tenno to do damage until it rises back up.

Hacked Bursas will die 10 seconds after they were hacked. Tenno must continuously hack the terminals and Bursas until the Razorback is down for good.


Upon completion of the Razorback mission, all members of the squad will receive one of the following:

Barrel.png Gorgon Wraith Barrel 18.97%
Blueprint2.svg Gorgon Wraith Blueprint 18.97%
Receiver.png Gorgon Wraith Receiver 18.97%
Stock.png Gorgon Wraith Stock 18.97%

  • The Razorback Armada mission contains many Bursas, Hyenas, and Eximi.
    • The Hyenas initially have a 100% drop rate for Orokin Cells, but gradually diminishes over time.[1]
    • A Bursa may appear if the player is spotted by any Security Cameras along the way.
    • Hence no Juno Crewmen and MOAs appear along the way to the arena, but they will present in the arena gradually during the fight to provide support for Razorback. Among them is Juno Malleus Machinist that will kill any hacked Bursas in one hit if not being taken care of immediately.
  • A shield window will appear in front of the player when the player is hacking the terminal to spawn a Bursa. Primarily to block any direct fire from the front side.

  • Disabled the new boss Health bar on Razorback because it was causing an issue. Razorback will now have it’s original Health bar.

Hotfix 25.8.1 (2019-10-09)
Hyena Change (Razorback mission only):
An Orokin Cell farming exploit was brought to our attention by not only players, but also our internal flagging system when such a method is tripped for misuse. In short, players were forcing the Hyena’s to spawn infinitely by entering/exiting rooms knowing that their Orokin Cell drop rate is 100%. As a result of this misuse, the Orokin Cell drop rate for the Hyena’s in the Razorback mission will diminish the more you spawn, to still allow for multiple drop attempts but without giving away the entire cake. Please note that players who are trade banned due to triggering this exploit will be manually unbanned after this Hotfix.

  • Removed hack doors from the Razorback boss tileset.

  • To reduce "droughts" between Fomorian/Razorback events, Grineer and Corpus now gain fractional progress towards *their construction projects while they are actively invading an opponent's location (i.e. earn progress over the *course of their attack regardless of whether they end up occupying the node at the end).

Update 21.7 (2017-09-09)

  • The Razorback Armada now has a lore entry in the Codex to show you its drops!

Update 21.6 (2017-08-29)

  • Reduced the Razorback Cipher cost from 3500 Polymer Bundle to 1500 Polymer Bundle. Back in May of this year we made numerous fixes towards the Razorback Armada, and with another Armada to appear soon we took a second look at the *Polymer friction involved with this non-useable Blueprint.

Hotfix 20.1.1 (2017-04-07)

  • Fomorians & Razorbacks now use the Tactical Alert format in the World State Window.

Hotfix 18.4.11 (2016-02-12)
