These rare, braided throwing daggers were a favorite tool of high ranking Orokin assassins.

The Spira Prime is the Prime variant of the Spira throwing daggers, featuring an increase in fire rate, reload speed, status chance, and critical multiplier in exchange for reduced damage.

On December 6th, 2017, it was announced that Spira Prime would enter the Prime Vault and its relics retired from the drop tables on December 12th, 2017, along with Saryn Prime and Nikana Prime. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons will remain as is.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • The Spira Prime was originally released in July 2015 on the Chinese build of Warframe, along with Excalibur Umbra Prime and Nikana Prime.
  • The Spira Prime was unintentionally leaked in the Codex following Hotfix 18.4.7.
  • The drill tip on the Spira Prime spins, making it the only throwing knife secondary with a non-static animated model.
  • "Spira" is the Latin word for "spiral" or "coil". The weapon is named this way due to its spinning tips.


  • Equipping a skin on Spira Prime doesn't affect the projectile model and resets its colors to default, although the trace has set custom energy color ( Tested on PC with Spira Day of the Dead skin )


  • The Spira Prime as it appears in Codex.
  • Spira Prime projectile graphical glitch
