Ballistas are Grineer female units that utilize the Vulkar for long range support. While they have a slower fire rate than other Grineer units, Ballistas deal more damage and are smaller targets.

TacticsEdit

  • Despite of their role as a long-ranged unit, they seem to have similar tactics used by regular Grineer Lancers.
  • Like all standard Grineer, her Vulkar can do devastating Impact damage to shields when it hits such targets and has a fairly high chance to proc. Although more rare, Slash procs can occur which are more deadly than other Grineer weapons due to its high base damage. 
  • Ballista can perform a quick, three shot burst when blind-firing from around a corner with each shot dealing as much damage as they normally would under regular circumstances, making it very deadly.
  • Ballistas even though they have a low firing rate can become a serious nuisance as their Vulkars are capable of dropping a player's shields in under 3 shots and they are often isolated from other Grineer Allies.

TriviaEdit

  • The Ballista was added in Update 7.
  • Prior to Update 8, Ballistas used the Snipetron.
  • These spawn frequently on Shklovsky (Phobos)
  • Anemic Agility was removed from the Ballista's drop table in Update 15.7.2. According to the changelog, it was only ever intended to drop in Orokin Vaults.

MediaEdit

  • A Grineer Ballista.
  • Ballista prior to U8 with the Snipetron.
