The Comba is a special Corpus infantry unit. Like the Nullifier Crewman, the Comba is capable of projecting an aura from their helmet that disrupts Warframe abilities; unlike the former, however, the Comba's field is invisible and only disrupts certain classes of abilities. The nullification aura also disrupts the player's HUD if the player moves within range, which also acts as an indicator that the nullification aura is in effect. At some point during an update or hot fix after their introduction, not listed in the patch notes at all, they've been given Dispel as well and can now also dispel the abilities they nullify depending on the type of Comba. The same applies to Scrambus units.
A Comba's loadout is modular, and they can be equipped with one type of nullification Aura combined with a different weapon loadout. There are four classes of nullification auras, and four types of weapons that Combas can equip, thus there are sixteen different possible combinations of loadouts possible for Combas, making them unpredictable in the field.
Comba have access to 4 different nullification auras, each disrupting only a certain category of Warframe abilities within a 15 meter radius. Each type of aura is emitted by the Comba's helmet, whose design changes depending on the aura equipped, allowing them to be identified visually.
Each Comba can be equipped with one of the following weapons in combination with any of the four different auras above:
- Swarmer: Swarmer-type Comba are equipped with Detrons, however their versions have a slower flight speed, can home in on targets, and deal Blast damage instead of Radiation.
- Seeker: These Comba are equipped with Angstrum rocket launchers loaded with target-seeking missiles that deal Blast damage on impact. These rockets move slower, and are fired in bursts of three to four.
- Whip: Designed for close-quarters fighting, these Comba use Lecta electric whips.
- Energy Shield: Primarily defensive in nature, these Comba can deploy elliptical energy shields in front of them that block all incoming attacks. They can be identified by the large emitters on their forearms. In a pinch, they will attack by swinging their emitters at nearby targets, dealing Electricity damage.
A Fog Comba disrupts Perception-type abilities. They wear tall, cylindrical helmets inscribed with Corpus text.
A Nul Comba disrupts Buff & Debuff-type abilities. They wear tall, boxy helms with a blue, cross-shaped light strip.
A Sap Comba disrupts Damage-type abilities. They wear a visor consisting of a long, protruding box, while the lower half of their face remains exposed.
A Slo Comba disrupts Mobility-type abilities. They wear tall, boxy helms with a single white, vertical light strip in the middle.
- The Comba's helmets emit a distinct pinging sound that can alert players to their position within 50 meters, giving ample warning as to their presence.
- Since their nullification abilities are tied to their helmets, a Comba's nullification field can be disabled by shooting off their helmets.
- The Comba (and their counterparts the Scrambus) may easily be found on medium to high level Corpus controlled planets such as Europa, Neptune or Pluto.
- The Comba (and their counterparts the Scrambus) are the first enemies in Warframe to have both male and female versions. They are also the first Corpus enemies to feature females.
- They are the first enemy type introduced whose special ability can be disabled without killing them, in this case shooting off their helmets.
