Banish LimboBanish
Casts a wave of Rift energy that damages hostiles while pushing enemies and allies out of Limbo’s current plane of existence.
Strength:150 / 200 / 225 / 250 (damage)
Duration:10 / 15 / 20 / 25 s
Range:20 / 25 / 30 / 35 m (wave distance)
10 m (initial width)
? ° (spread angle)

  • Limbo unleashes a wave of invisible Rift energy in a cone toward the HUD's targeting reticle. The wave starts at a diameter of 10 meters in width and immediately spreads in a ?-degree angle, up to 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 meters away from Limbo. All enemies and allies caught in the wave's extent are banished out of Limbo's current plane of existence: if Limbo is in the material plane, only material-bound targets will be banished into the Rift plane for 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 seconds; if Limbo is in the Rift, then only Rift-bound targets will return to the material plane.
    • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Wave distance is affected by Ability Range, while the initial width and spread angle are not.
    • Wave bypasses obstacles in the environment and does not require line of sight with targets.
    • Cast animation of 0.7 seconds is not affected by Natural Talent or Speed Drift.
  • Banish exhibits various effects when applied to ally or enemy targets:

  • Targets banished into the Rift can be banished out of it by any Limbo.
  • Targets in different dimensional planes can still physically collide with each other.
  • Weapon attacks are only effective when the combatants are all present in the same dimensional plane. Otherwise, weapon damage, critical hits, and status effects have no effect on both parties; hit-scan and projectiles will phase through entities on different planes.
  • Warframe abilities can penetrate through the Rift to affect targets on different dimensional planes.
  • The following effects cannot affect targets on different planes: Infested Ancient and Eximus aura effects, most environmental and Infested Hive hazards, Grineer Arc Traps and Sensor Bar force fields, Corpus Laser Barriers, Orokin Death Orbs, and Spy 2.0 laser sensors do not trip the data vault alarm.
  • For more information on Rift-related attributes, see the Rift Plane article.

  • Players affected by Banish can leave the Rift plane by performing a roll (default Shift ) or a backspring (default RMB  + S  + Shift ).
  • Warframes regenerate 2 energy per second. This energy recharge is constant and cannot be interrupted, except by some abilities or by exiting the Rift.
  • Banished players can still succumb to most bosses' special abilities, as well as ability nullifying effects from Nullifier Crewman, Comba, Scrambus, Datalyst, Isolator Bursa, Disruptor Drone and the Stalker.
  • Banished players cannot prompt the interact function (default X ) on most interactive objects in the environment.
    • Banished players can still revive and be revived by other players outside the Rift.
    • Portable items (datamasses, power cores and void keys) cannot be picked up, but will be carried through the Rift.
  • Banished players cannot collect pickups on the ground unless the items are located within Cataclysm. However, a Sentinel's Vacuum precept can gather pickups in midair until the player exits the Rift plane.
  • Players are visually coated in a layer of white energy while in the Rift plane.
  • For more information on Rift-related attributes, see the Rift Plane article.

  • Enemies affected by Banish are knocked down and dealt 150 / 200 / 225 / 250 Impact b Impact damage. Additionally, they take 300 Impact b Impact transitional damage upon entering or leaving the Rift plane.
    • Ability damage is affected by Ability Strength, while the transition damage is not.
  • Rift Walking causes Limbo to enter the Rift plane, allowing him to damage banished enemies. Allies can elect to enter the Rift via the portal created by Limbo's stride to damage banished enemies.
  • Cataclysm causes Limbo and his allies to enter the Rift plane while inside its influence, allowing them to damage banished enemies outside the Cataclysm.
  • Oxium Ospreys and Volatile Runners will charge and detonate regardless of whether they are in the same plane as their intended targets. However, the explosion will only deal damage to enemies on the same plane.
  • Enemies are visually coated in rippling energy and monochrome flames while in the Rift plane.
  • For more information on Rift-related attributes, see the Rift Plane article.

Tips & Tricks
  • Banish a Rescue target to protect him/her from harm while you head toward extraction.
  • While within Cataclysm with an intended enemy target, Banish will not alter the plane status of your target, as it will remain within the Rift plane. However, the target will still be knocked down and be dealt Banish's damage.
  • Can be used on Loki's Decoy, Saryn's Molt or Chroma's Effigy to make them immune to damage from enemies that are not in the Rift plane.
    • Can also be cast on Shield Osprey specters, which is very useful considering that Shield Ospreys often will simply wander into groups of enemies and die rather quickly, and because the shield link works through the Rift plane.
