ShockModU15.jpeg Shock.png
Launches a shocking projectile. It stuns and deals high damage to a single target and chains damage to nearby enemies.
Strength:75 / 100 / 125 / 200 (DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity damage)
Range:7 / 10 / 12 / 15 m (chain link range)
Misc:∞ (cast range)
2 / 3 / 4 / 5 (chain links)
100 % (DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity status chance)
Subsumable to Helminth

  • Volt releases an arc discharge toward the targeted enemy or location on the aiming reticle over unrestricted range, chaining electricity to enemies within 7 / 10 / 12 / 15 meters of each point of contact. The arc can chain a maximum of 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 times and inflicts 75 / 100 / 125 / 200 DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity damage with a 100% status chance to each enemy.
    • Chain link range is affected by Ability Range.
    • Damage is affected by Ability Strength.
    • DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity damage is effective against Machinery and Robotics but less effective against Alloy Armor.
    • DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity status effect chains 50% of Shock's base damage to surrounding enemies in a small area of effect. Shocked enemies will also be briefly stunned.
    • Cast range and status chance are not affected by mods.
    • Shock's first point of contact can either be a surface or an enemy:
      • By aiming the arc at a surface within the vicinity of nearby enemies, Shock can be used to damage enemies without directly aiming at them.
      • By aiming the arc directly at an enemy, Shock will have the potential to damage and stun a maximum of 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 enemies per cast.
    • Shock can only chain to enemies within the arc's line of sight (e.g., Shock will not phase through obstacles in the environment to reach enemies within range).
  • Can be used while performing many actions without interrupting them, including reloading.
  • Ability Synergy:
    • Casting Shock through an ElectricShield130xDark.png Electric Shield will electrify it, inflicting 100% of Shock's damage to enemies that pass through it (e.g., Electric Shield will deal 260 damage if Shock's modified damage is 260).
      • The bonus damage from Volt's passive will also be stacked onto the damage from Shock (e.g., Electric Shield will deal 760 damage if Shock's modified damage is 260 and the Passive bonus is 500 at the time Shock is cast).
    • Casting Shock against a target under Discharge130xDark.png Discharge's effect will result in an overcharge, creating an area of effect burst emitted from the target.
  • Subsuming Volt to the Helminth will offer Shock and its augments to be used by other Warframes.

Tips & Tricks
  • Shock stuns all affected enemies. This is especially useful against heavy units.
  • Firing Shock directly at enemies may or may not be useful due to its targeting mechanics. Try instead to fire shock at the surfaces near the enemies (the ground, walls, ceiling, etc).
  • Firing Shock at the wall behind a corner will chain damage to nearby enemies around said corner. This can be used to scout for enemies not in your line of sight.
  • Deals 50% more damage to machinery and robotics.
