- Main article: Seeking Shuriken
Seeking Shuriken is an Warframe Augment Mod that allows to temporarily reduce the armor of their targets.
- Can be cast in rapid succession and since procs ignore armor and can be stacked, this can bypass the high scaled armor of Grineer units.
- Shuriken can be used to seek out nearby hidden enemies due to its homing feature.
- However, Shuriken will often try to seek enemies that you've run past, making it miss both the enemy you ran past and the target you were trying to hit.
- Using the augment, Ash can strip armor of any enemy entirely with only 143% Ability Strength. It works great on bosses, especially in Sorties when they are high level.
