Advances on microelectronics have improved a Corpus classic. Tenet Glaxion’s photon beam strikes up to four enemies at once. It also boasts superior Damage, Critical Chance, and Status Chance.

The Tenet Glaxion is the Tenet variant of the Glaxion Glaxion DmgColdSmall64 Cold beam. In addition to being a direct upgrade, the Tenet Glaxion's beam has gained the ability to chain between multiple enemies.


  • This weapon deals DmgColdSmall64 Cold damage.
  • Beam can chain up to 3 nearby enemies within 7 meters from the initial target, with each chain doing 50% of the previous chain's damage.
    • Enemy corpses will still allow the beam to connect to nearby enemies.
    • Each enemy hit by the main beam from Punch Through can generate a new set of 3 chains.
  • Can use the Glaxion-exclusive Mod TT 20px Photon Overcharge mod.
  • Comes with an additional bonus DmgImpactSmall64 Impact, DmgFireSmall64 Heat, DmgColdSmall64 Cold, DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity, DmgToxinSmall64 Toxin, DmgMagneticSmall64 Magnetic, or DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation damage, based on the Sister's progenitor Warframe, which increases the listed base damage of the weapon by 25%-60%.
    • Valence Fusion can optionally change the resulting output damage type, and can upgrade the bonus increase (up to 60%).
  • Polarizing the weapon increases its max rank by 2, capping at rank 40 after 5 polarizations, granting the weapon additional mod capacity.
  • Listed Mastery Rank requirement is not enforced - the weapon may theoretically be obtained at any mastery rank by acquiring and vanquishing a Sister that has this weapon equipped.

Advantages over other Primary weapons (excluding modular weapons):

  • Pinpoint accuracy.
  • Consumes 0.5 ammo per tick of damage.
  • Normal Attack (wiki attack index 1)
    • High magazine (90)
    • High ammo max (810)
    • High fire rate (12.00 attacks/sec)
    • Very high status chance (40.00%)
    • Above average crit multiplier (2.20x)

Disadvantages over other Primary weapons (excluding modular weapons):

  • Damage ramps up from 20% to 100% over 0.6 seconds when firing. After firing stops for 0.8 seconds, the damage decays back to 20% over 2 seconds.
  • Limited range of 30 meters.
  • Normal Attack (wiki attack index 1)
    • Below average crit chance (20.00%)
    • Low total damage (34)
    • Very low disposition (●○○○○ (0.50x))

See WARFRAME Wiki:Stat Comparison/Percentiles for more details.




Tenet Glaxion is obtained by vanquishing a Sister who generated with one equipped. After the Sister is vanquished it will be in the player's Foundry ready to claim.

While the weapon itself is not tradeable, a converted Sister generated with the weapon can be traded to another player. The trade is performed inside a Clan Dojo's Crimson Branch room, and the recipient must not have any active Lich or Sister. Once traded, the recipient must fight and vanquish the Sister to claim their weapon.

Kuva/Tenet Notes[]

  • For weapons obtained from vanquishing the Kuva Lich or Sister:
    • The player does not have to meet the Mastery Rank displayed to obtain this weapon. It can simply be claimed from the foundry after the Lich/Sister carrying it has been vanquished.
    • The weapon will have a prefix of the name of the Lich/Sister it was acquired from (e.g. a Kuva Kohm might be called "Odizrigg Agekk Kuva Kohm").
  • Refraining from Mercy killing a lich candidate will remove their weapon from the pool of potential lich weapons until each has been refused, but only if the mission is completed. Weapons rejected from aborted missions will remain in the current cycle.
  • For weapons obtained from Ergo Glast's shop:
    • The player must meet the Mastery Rank displayed to obtain this weapon, as it is claimed from an NPC shop rather than the foundry.
  • The weapon's max rank caps at 40 after 5 polarizations (max rank increases by 2 per Forma added).
    • Additional polarizations can be added when the weapon reaches its new max rank at that polarization level.
    • Each additional rank also gives 100 Mastery Rank experience, giving 4,000 points in total at level 40.
    • Mod capacity scales with the additional ranks, and can reach a total of 80 at rank 40 with an Orokin Catalyst installed.
      • Without an Orokin Catalyst, the max is 40. Combined with the five polarized mod slots required to reach that point, an Orokin Catalyst might not be required for some beginner-friendly builds as they typically use less mod capacity.
      • After polarizing a weapon, any additional mod capacity above 30 (60 with an Orokin Catalyst) will not take effect until the weapon's rank reaches 31 and above.
        • Legendary Mastery Rank increases the minimum mod capacity for such weapons, without the weapon needing to be rank 31 and above. For example, Legendary 1 increases the minimum capacity to 31 (62 with an Orokin Catalyst).
  • Comes with an additional damage stat.
    • For Lich/Sister-obtained weapons this is dependent on the Warframe that summoned the Lich/Sister.
    • For Ergo Glast shop a random bonus stat will be offered for each weapon and changed every 4 days (96 hours).
    • This damage stat randomly ranges between 25%-60%. It can be upgraded up to its maximum value with Valence Fusion using another copy of the weapon.
    • This bonus stat is considered a base damage type and will be applied after all elemental mods for the purposes of elemental combinations.

  • Weapons with an innate primary element and a different primary element provided by the progenitor both behave as innate elements and combine with each other. They will also recombine with modded elements in the following order:
    • Mod slot 1 → Mod slot 2 → ... → Mod slot 8 → Innate DmgFireSmall64 Heat → Innate DmgColdSmall64 Cold → Innate DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity → Innate DmgToxinSmall64 Toxin
