This arm-cannon, ripped from a Sentient, rapid-fires thermal pulses that explode in an electrical blast. Features an ammo-less quick charge capacitor, that emits a knock-back pulse and strips Sentient damage resistances when fully discharged.

The Shedu is a Sentient Arm-Cannon that fires Heat b Heat beams that explode in a 5.5-meter radius on impact with Electricity b Electric damage and sports an ammo-less recharge capacitor. It also releases a 20-meter pulse when expending all ammo which staggers enemies with an Impact b Impact proc and also removes Sentient damage resistances.

The Shedu's components are rare drops from Symbilysts found in Sentient ships that appear in the Veil Proxima during Empyrean missions. The ship appears every 2 hours and 45 minutes, occupying one random node for 30 minutes, indicated by a red flashing SentientFactionIcon b symbol. The parts can be traded between players.


  • The Shedu's particle effects can make it very difficult to aim. To offset this, players may either change the Shedu's energy color to black or reduce particle density altogether via the Options menu.
  • Since the Shedu is a one-handed weapon, it can be used with one-handed actions, such as during Bleedout or while carrying an object.
  • Unlike some other explosive/area-of-effect weapons such as DEPenta Penta and OgrisNew Ogris, and more like GlassShotgun Astilla, the explosions made by shots from Shedu do not penetrate obstacles such as walls, floors and objects. thus, making it a bit trickier to utilize the full potential of its high radial attack range.


  • As the Heat b Heat and Electricity b Electric damage portions are separate from one another, the Shedu can get a combination of Gas b Gas and Corrosive b Corrosive with only a Toxin b Toxin damage mod.


  • For various reasons, the Shedu may end up unusable during a mission, and the only way to fix this is to use a Revive. Known bug triggers include:
    • Attempting to shoot while the Shedu is recharging.
    • Attempting to shoot the weapon semi-auto instead of going full-auto by holding the trigger.
    • Getting grabbed by an enemy harpoon attack, such as a Scorpion or an Infested Ancient.
    • Loading into a public match that has already started. This particular trigger requires confirmation.
    • Getting a host migration during the mission, losing the weapon entirely and becoming "unarmed" if no other weapons are carried.

Most if not all of the known bugs were fixed as of Update 27.0.9.


  • Shedu is an Assyrian guardian deity. The term also means demon or insanity in several other languages.
  • When RhinoIcon272 Rhino is using IronSkin130xDark Iron Skin, Shedu's appearance is also affected. covering certain parts of surface with the same metallic tint as RhinoIcon272 Rhino. it's also affected by the warframe's tint color if the IronSkin130xDark Iron Skin was cast by Rhino PrimeIcon272 Rhino Prime to match the owner.
