Fighter Escort
Deploys drones that fight alongside the Warframe, each detonating in a destructive blast when killed.
Strength:2 / 4 / 6 / 8 (drones)
1000 / 1500 / 2000 / 2500 (explosion damage)
Duration:15 / 20 / 25 / 30 s
Range:60 / 100 / 120 / 160 m (explosion radius)
80 m (beam range)

  • The Itzal launches 2 / 4 / 6 / 8 Locust Drones that independently attack enemies within a range of 80 meters using lasers that deal continuous Electricity b Electricity damage. These drones will disappear after 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 seconds. If a drone is destroyed by enemy fire or detonates after the ability's duration expires, it will deal 1000 / 1500 / 2000 / 2500 Blast b Blast damage within a radius of 60 / 100 / 120 / 160 meters.
    • Number of drones, beam damage (pending confirmation), and explosion damage are affected by Ability Strength.
    • Explosion damage does not bypass obstacles in the environment and decreases with distance.
    • Drone duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Explosion radius is affected by Ability Range.
    • Range values indicated in the UI (15 / 25 / 30 / 40 meters) are actually on-foot range values as measured in standard Warframe missions; the actual range in an Archwing mission is quadruple the on-foot range.
    • Drones require line of sight for targeting acquisition.
  • Drones will not be transported by Blink, will not open fire while under the effects of Penumbra, and will not attack during a sprint.
  • Cannot be recast while active.

Tips & Tricks
  • The drones can distract enemies trying to attack you, drawing fire away from you (giving your shields time to regenerate) and dealing a little extra damage. Whilst they are fairly easily destroyed they are also small and agile, which means enemies without beam weapons will have a hard time hitting them.
  • Whilst ineffective against high-level enemies, the drones can easily destroy lower-level targets by focusing their fire.

Maximization is a form of specialization: mods may be blended to result in values that vary between the top-end limits listed here. Click any maximized link to learn how to build it.
