The Obex system multiplies the kinetic energy of a Tenno's kicks and punches, delivering deadly blows to any target.
The Obex is a set of Corpus-built hand and foot guards designed for close combat. Compared to the Kogake, the Obex sacrifices damage for attack speed and critical chance, allowing its wielders to defeat their enemies with a flurry of punches and kicks.
If the Melee button is pressed repeatedly as the Obex is being used in a long succession, this generates two spheres of energy around that can last about 5 seconds. This process also produces flames in each hand.
Unlike the Kogake, when equipped on Vauban the weapon does not clip the mesh on his feet. Instead, it fits his boxy figure flawlessly.
Using the jump attack to knock down an enemy who is in the midst of attempting to initiate a lockdown has a tendency to cause a lockdown to occur immediately.
When online, the flames generated from each hand will stay permanently for the rest of the mission after a prolonged succession of melee attacks.
