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.

With their Vulkar, Ballistas deal -18.13% reduced damage to warframes' health at 1.25% armor mitigation (armor counting 0.9875 times), but deal +36.25% bonus damage to warframes' shields.

TacticsEdit

  • In spite 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.
  • Even though they have a low firing rate, Ballistas 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.
  • The Drekar variant has a health and armor value equivalent to that of Frontier/Arid Heavy Gunners, instead of the usual 100 flesh/armor value of the standard one.
    • This may possibly be a mistake in coding.[citation needed]

MediaEdit

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