Striking with massive twin blades, the Redeemer fires the killing blow with its built-in shotgun.

The Redeemer is a gunblade that merges the functions of a shotgun and a melee weapon. Apart from its normal melee abilities, the Redeemer can also fire off a charged shotgun blast to hit enemies at range.


This weapon deals primarily DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage with swinging attacks and  DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage with gunblade shots.


  • High DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage – effective against health.
  • High status chance.
  • Gunblade shots functions similarly to a shotgun, firing out 10 pellets at once.
    • Shots have innate DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage – effective against Machinery and Fossilized.
    • Shots have a chance to either stagger or knockdown enemies.
    • Firing within 4 meters of an enemy will ragdoll them.
    • Shots do not use ammo.
    • Shots have innate punch through.




The Redeemer's blueprint can be purchased from the Market.

  • Mod TT 20px.png Shattering Impact cannot be triggered by charged shots.
  • Shots have innate punch through when firing through enemies and non-terrain objects, e.g. Grineer Blunts.
  • Blocking is possible while charging a shot.
  • Charged shots are affected by the following:
  • Charged shot will prevent Warframe from moving at the moment of firing.
  • Firing the shotgun does not invalidate the "The Sword Alone" and "The 8-fold Path" Achievements.
  • Charged shots do not pass through FrostIcon272.png Frost's SnowGlobe130xDark.png Snow Globe if players are standing outside the globe.
  • The DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast area of effect will destroy cracked windows on Corpus ships.
  • Missed shots do not influence the accuracy rating in the mission progress table. Shots that hit, however, do.
  • Jumping cannot be done until the charge shot animation has ended.
  • Finishers on enemies have silenced and unsilenced variants, depending on the enemy type and position the finisher was initiated on. On humanoid enemies, stealth finishers from behind will result in a blade slash and be silent, however finishers from the front will discharge the shotgun blast and alert nearby enemies. Finishers on enemies who are knocked down will also discharge the weapon in a similar manner so if stealth is preferred, always go for rear finishers.
  • Despite shots alarming enemies, they won't break IvaraIcon272.png Ivara's Prowl130xDark.png Prowl.


  • The charged shot can be chained, even while sliding, by pressing and holding the attack button with the right timing (rather than making a first melee attack followed by a shot).
  • Mod TT 20px.png Energy Channel gives a flat +200 increase to the base damage of a single pellet, however this works only for 1 of the 10 pellets per shot meaning that the maximum base damage per shot is 500.
  • If players stand too close to their target, only 1 pellet will hit. Staying more than 2 meters away when firing will help players avoid this.


  • The concept of a sword integrated with a gun is based off the real life concept of the Pistol Sword, although the Redeemer uses a shotgun instead of a pistol.
    • In particular, the Redeemer's grip stance with the blade parallel to the user's arm is reminiscent of the concept of the Indian Dagger Katar.
  • The Redeemer is the first weapon that requires two different weapons – the Vasto.png Vasto and the DualSkana.png Dual Skana – as crafting materials.
    • The in-game description does not match the crafting requirements. It says it has an in-built shotgun, but the gun used to build it is a Vasto, which is a revolver. This could be a reference to the Pistol Sword that the Redeemer is based on.
      • On the other hand, some revolvers can shoot shotgun shells such as the .410 bore.
    • The shotgun on the Redeemer also consists of two barrels – one on each side of the blade – fitted to a drum-like clip akin to that of the Vasto.
  • It is stated in the design council that the Redeemer's design is based on the design of the Tigris.png Tigris shotgun.
  • Unlike most weapons, the Redeemer is twirled through the air into the players' hands and back when equipped and unequipped rather than simply being drawn and sheathed.
  • The Redeemer's design is based on that of the Tigris.png Tigris and Akjagara.png Akjagara.
  • Redeemer is the first gunblade introduced into the game, followed by Sarpa.png Sarpa.
  • The Mortuus Shoulder Guard features a Redeemer stabbed through a Corpus helmet.



  • Charging the blast with quick-melee and then jumping to cancel it will result in the Redeemer being held in combination with your current weapon.
  • The Redeemer is not properly aligned with the hands of some, if not all Warframe models, causing the already thin handle to clip into the user's hand, giving the appearance that the Redeemer is 'floating'.
  • If a weapon is fired until the magazine is fully depleted, the charged shot and reloading will sometimes happen concurrently. This is most visible with the Tigris, but has also been noted with other primaries.
