This modified Ballistica is the weapon of choice used by Red Veil Assassins to take out high-priority marks.
The Rakta Ballistica is an exclusive version of the Ballistica available only from the Red Veil. Unlike the standard version, the Rakta Ballistica has Impact as its primary damage type, and features a larger magazine as well as innate Blight effect.
The Rakta Ballistica can be acquired by reaching the Rank of Exalted with the Red Veil, and spending 100,000 Standing to purchase. As with all Syndicate Weapons, the Rakta Ballistica cannot be chosen as the free offering upon ranking up to Exalted rank.
The Rakta Ballistica has an innate Blight effect identical to that found in Red VeilWeapon Augment Mods. Upon accumulating sufficient affinity, the Rakta Ballistica will release an AoE radial blast that deals Viral damage and proc, restores 25% of the Warframe's maximum Energy, and temporarily buffs movement speed by 10% for 30 seconds.
The innate polarity can somewhat limit elemental modding potential, thus making it a less desirable polarity for elemental modding. If you wish to focus more on elemental damage, then it is recommended to either ignore the polarity or use Forma to turn it into a more suitable polarity.
This is the second item in the game with the "Rakta" name, the first one being the Rakta Syandana.
Currently, only the weapon's energy color can be customized.
Unlike Vandal and Wraith weapons, the Rakta Ballistica cannot be equipped with a skin (e.g Forest-Camo Skin) to enable it to change colors.
