Tips & Tricks

  • Switch Teleport can be used on:
    • Enemies (including Bosses, excluding Lephantis)
    • Corpses and gibs (they tend to teleport to a place of death, without switching).
    • Teammates (teammates cannot be switched from active extraction zone)
    • Decoys created by yourself, a fellow Loki, a SarynIcon272 Saryn's Molt130xWhite Molt, or a WukongIcon272 Wukong's CelestialTwin130xWhite Celestial Twin.
  • Unlike AshIcon272 Ash, Loki is unable to teleport to objects.
  • You can easily move past a group of enemies by targeting the enemy furthest away, Switch teleporting, and then continuing to run.
  • Switch Teleport can be used to easily bypass laser barriers and similar traps within Spy vaults, by casting Decoy in the desired location and then switch-teleporting to it. Decoy itself will not set off laser traps, though it can potentially alert enemies within the vault, causing them to set off the alarm.
  • Switch Teleport also works on allies who are bleeding out, allowing the transportation of them to a safer area out of the way of enemies if necessary.
  • Can be used on Dargyn Pilots on the Plains of Eidolon to instantly steal Tusk Dargyns.
  • Can be used to skip a Spy vault with glass obstacle (with one Grineer inside), especially on Grineer Asteroid tileset.
  • Improving Casting Speed allows you to resume attacking sooner after teleporting.
