Weapon Loadouts

主条目: Category:Sancti Castanas Build


  • The Sancti Castanas has an innate Purity effect identical to that found in New Loka Weapon Augment Mods. Upon accumulating sufficient affinity, the Sancti Castanas will release an AoE radial blast that deals Corrosive b.png Corrosive damage and proc, restores 25% of the Warframe's maximum Health, and temporarily buffs maximum Health by 25% for 30 seconds.
  • These are the ONLY weapons in the entire game that innately come with 3 polarities installed (Two Madurai Pol.png and one Vazarin Pol.png), making modding extremely easy.
    • In this case, the Vazarin Pol.png polarity is very easy to use, as two Madurai Pol.png polarities means that it will deal a lot of raw AND elemental damage after modding, meaning that mods that use the polarity like Deep Freeze is very efficient.
