Excalibur is the first of three initial Warframes that can be chosen in the game, along with Mag and Volt.

Wielding a mix of offensive, defensive and supportive abilities, Excalibur is a versatile frame that can fulfill a variety of roles: With his ability Slash Dash, Excalibur possesses a fair amount of mobility, allowing him to hurdle through certain map sections that only a few Warframes are capable of. Radial Blind is a supportive skill that stuns a wide group of enemies around Excalibur allowing him and/or his teammates ample time to finish them off. Slash Dash, Radial Javelin and Exalted Blade are his offensive skills and they provide Excalibur with a decent level of damage that synergizes well with the other frames, such as Mag with her Magnetize ability.
