Stagger, also known as Interrupt, is a Status Effect that causes enemies to flinch and recoil.

DmgImpactSmall64 Impact[]

When an DmgImpactSmall64 Impact proc occurs, the enemy will flinch and recoil backwards. However, Ospreys, Bosses, and Tenno are immune to the effects of stagger caused by DmgImpactSmall64 Impact.

Self Interrupt Weapons[]

Preceded by
Self-Damage since Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

All weapons with a radial area of effect can cause Tenno to stagger if the user is caught in the resulting explosion. Depending on how far the user is from the center of the radial effect, the Tenno may either flinch briefly or be knocked away, being unable to take any action during these animations. Although the user takes no damage, they can still be harmed by enemies while recovering from the stagger.

Radial area weapons with a very rapid fire rate can be much more severe in this aspect. If the Tenno is hit by more than one blast at flinch range within the timespan of one flinch, it is upgraded to a full knockdown. The Akarius Akarius is a particularly noteworthy example of this.

Towards the end of the backflip stagger animation, the Warframe will flash in their energy colors briefly. Jumping during the flash will cancel the stagger, allowing players to act earlier.
