Launches a spinning blade of pain, dealing high damage and impaling enemies to walls.
Strength:100 / 250 / 350 / 500 (DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage on hit)
Misc:1 / 1 / 2 / 2 (number of shurikens)
6 m (auto-target radius)
60 m (targeting range)
90° (homing angle)
100 % (DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash status chance)
Subsumable to Helminth

  • Ash throws 1 / 1 / 2 / 2 shuriken to strike enemies standing within a 6 meter radius around him, or home in on enemies within 60 meters and a 90° angle of the aiming reticle. Each Shuriken inflicts 100 / 250 / 350 / 500 DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage with a 100% status chance on hit.
    • Damage is affected by Ability Strength and TheoremDemulcent.png Theorem Demulcent.
    • The Bleed DoT inflicts 43.75% of the initial damage per tick for a total of 9 ticks over 9 seconds, due to Ash's passive. The Bleed damage bypasses armor.
      • Should Shuriken hit an enemy's head, the Bleed DoT will inflict 87.5% of the initial damage per tick for the same duration.
    • Number of shurikens, auto-target radius, targeting range, homing angle, and status chance are not affected by mods.
    • Shurikens do not require direct line of sight to home in on enemies.
    • Shurikens can bypass obstacles in the environment to strike targets behind walls and objects.
    • Shurikens will travel toward the aiming reticle on a slight angle if no enemies were standing close to Ash or within the targeting range and homing angle. Enemies will still receive damage and proc if hit by these Shurikens.
  • Shuriken will not disrupt Shade's cloak.
  • Shuriken is a one-handed action. As such, it can be used while performing various maneuvers and actions without interruption.
  • Delay of about 0.5 seconds between uses.
  • Subsuming Ash to the Helminth will offer Shuriken and its augments to be used by other Warframes.

Main article: Seeking Shuriken

Seeking Shuriken is an AshIcon272.png Ash Warframe Augment Mod that allows Shuriken130xDark.png Shuriken to temporarily reduce the armor of their targets.

Rank Armor Reduction Duration Cost
0 35% 2s 6
1 45% 4s 7
2 55% 6s 8
3 70% 8s 9

Tips & Tricks
  • Can be cast in rapid succession and since DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash 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 Mod TT 20px.png Seeking Shuriken 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.
