For the pistol mod, see Seeker (Mod).

Seekers are tactical Grineer units with yellow-green armor and darker markings. Aside from using the Kraken.png Kraken pistol, they will also deploy Latchers. This ability makes them unlikely to rush into the front lines like any regular Grineer unit. More durable than regular Grineer Lancers, these can be versatile opponents.

Farming Locations[]

These are based on opinions and may not be 100% true. These should be viewed as advice for finding the enemies until better facts are proven. For endless missions, players may need to stay in-mission for a while until these enemies start spawning.

Notes[]

  • Seekers affected by NyxIcon272.png Nyx's Mind Control or Chaos will deploy Latchers which are allied, causing enemies to become distracted by them if they come nearby. Although weak to a single shot by any Grineer, a mind-controlled Seeker with duration can effectively spawn many Latchers, creating many possible entities that can redirect enemy fire.
  • Shadow Seekers do not deploy Latchers.

Tactics[]

  • Due to their habit of hiding away from actual combat, they can be more likely to use terminals in order to sound alarms and cause lockdowns than other units.
    • This also means that you will often find yourself constantly bombarded with Latchers from Seekers that you cannot see, requiring you to roll a lot.
    • Use these time slots to your advantage as the Seeker is incapable of retaliating effectively, preferable to kill with a strong damage-per-bullet weapon to avoid being killed by their Kraken/Viper.
  • Armed with a Kraken pistol, as said on its actual weapon statistics, a single Seeker can roughly match the damage output of two Grineer Lancers, if encountered at close combat.
    • The Kraken also possesses 14 rounds total, 7 bursts. Keep an eye out for Seeker reloads to take the opportunity of the moderate reload time.

Tips[]

  • For those hunting down Seekers (either for Mod farming or the Sands of Inaros Quest), Exterminate mission on Adaro, Sedna spawns a lot of them. Another option is to go to Draco on Ceres, a survival mission, and stay for at least 20 minutes, each rotation C should give the third of those needed. Drekar Seekers spawn also after 5 minutes in Ophelia (Survival, Uranus) in a large number. Excavation missions on Earth are also a good place to farm for Seekers.
  • For those hunting their daily Synthesis target for Cephalon Simaris, Ara on Mars is the fastest mission to complete.

Trivia[]

  • The Seeker was added to the game in the 2013 Valentine's Day update, Update 6.3 (2013-02-14).
  • The Frontier Seeker was originally a Seeker with its visor always up and wearing all-grey armor.
  • The Latchers deployed by the Seeker can jump up ledges, like a normal unit would, using the same pause where the jumping animation would be, much to the amusement of any watching players.
