General Sargas Ruk is the final boss of the Saturn system. He can be found on the mission Tethys. After defeating him and finishing the mission, you receive either Ember Helmet, Ember Chassis or Ember Systems blueprint. Has an increased chance to drop an Orokin Cell upon death.


Sargas Ruk appears as a beefy, heavily armored orange cyborg cyclops. He makes extensive use of cybernetic augmentations and amputations. Notably, his right arm is replaced with a flamethrower-type weapon.

General Sargas Ruk, like other bosses, has unique taunts and quotes. They can be found in the "Quotes" tab at the top.


  • His weakspots do not have a damage cap when exposed, allowing players to quickly progress through the phases.
  • He is one of three bosses that directly talk to the player in English, the others being Alad V and Councilor Vay Hek .
  • Ironically, despite General Sargas Ruk having blistering armor on his weapon components in battle, the Codex indicates that he has no armor at all.
  • Very rarely, Ruk will "double-drop" mods, although this is purely a visual glitch and the second mod is actually a resource. This has only been observed to happen with Orokin Cells.



  • Sargas Ruk is the third boss to receive a complete overhaul, after Captain Vor and Lieutenant Lech Kril.
  • Before Update 9, Sargas Ruk was generally the second Grineer boss that players would encounter, after Captain Vor.
  • Before Update 11, Ruk wielded a Gorgon and resembled a Bombard.
  • According to the mission briefing, Sargas Ruk had been raiding and annexing Tenno-controlled dig sites in the region, which is the main reason that led to him being targeted for assassination. He is also the main Artifact Hunter of the Grineer faction.
  • As of Update 8, Ruk has been moved from the Asteroid Base to the Galleon. Ironic, as Ruk is the only Grineer boss who really belonged in an Asteroid base due to his background as an artifact hunter invading Tenno-controlled dig sites.


  • It is said that Ruk has a deep hatred for anything but Grineer. This is not surprising, as all Grineers are xenophobic. He also considers flesh to be a flaw, and implanted many body modifications into himself as a result of his pursuit for "Grineer perfection."
  • Interestingly, during the Zanuka Project spoilers, Ruk is the one who puts forth the ultimatum to Alad V, even though Ruk is not generally associated with diplomatic encounters, as he is the main artifact hunter for the Grineer.
  • During The Gradivus Dilemma Ruk appears in his new form during the loading screen of contested levels and his new face is depicted during his dialogue.
  • Ruk speaks English to the player in his dialogue in the Gradivus Dilemma and when taunting the player on Tethys, albeit with apparent difficulty. It is unclear whether this is due to trouble with speaking the language or Grineer genetic deficiencies.
    • He is also the first boss to have unique voice lines for each taunt and have said lines match the subtitles.
  • In spite of his apparent hatred for non-Grineer, he still welcomes Tenno support, albeit with a somewhat condescending attitude.
    • Ironically, the weapons rewarded to the Tenno by Sargas Ruk in The Gravidus Dilemma can be used to dispatch Ruk with ease, particularly the Brakk.
  • If sided with the Corpus, Sargas Ruk will have the tendency to taunt against Alad V and the player, referring that the Tennos are made of metal. This supports the speculation of the Technocyte construction of the Warframe armor as the armor is said to be organic metal.
    • This might bring to mind about relationship of the Orokin and the Warframe during the Old War.
  • His "cyclops eye" and other lights on his armor glow blue, despite being orange by default (as seen in lobby screens and on his avatar).
  • It appears that General Sargas Ruk has already implemented Orokin technology on himself, like Captain Vor, due to the large halo revealing on top of his head which halos, in Orokin implementation, are commonly found on heads, such as Frost Prime, the Fusion MOA and the Corrupted. This proves enough that he should have Ember components as his attacks are Fire elemental.
  • It seems Sargas Ruk has a connection with the Grustrag Three. A related message can be read after completing the codex scans on Shik Tal, one of the members of the Grustrag Three.

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • He created a forum account on the Warframe forums to argue with Alad V: SargasRuk
  • General Sargas Ruk's first name, Sargas, is also the name of a star situated at the "tail" of the constellation of Scorpius.
    • Literally, his ability to cast flames made the reference much more related.
  • The community's term for "Greedy Milk" as an insulting name-call towards the Corpus was coined by Sargas Ruk, which was a part of Ruk's quotes during the Gravidus Dilemma.


[Edit-pencilEdit Tab]


General Sargas Ruk's battle is divided into three phases, each phase begins at every 1/3 increment of his health.

Defensively, he has heavy armoring impervious to damage except for one weakspot, which will appear on various locations depending on the phase he's in. But as wearing a pyro-amputation naturally goes, his exhaust will occasionally open to flush out heat in blue flame, which is his only vulnerable point. His exhaust is however, still high in armor.

Offensively, his cannon provides him with special abilities such as Fire Blast and Inferno. At medium range, he will use his cannon as a flamethrower and at long range, he will launch Blast Grenade capable of knockdown.


Phase 1Edit

During the first phase, Ruk will use his arm cannon as a flamethrower (similar to Ignis) at close quarter. And will launch a Blast Grenade, with a guaranteed of proc (knockdown).

His weak spot is located in the exhaust mounted on his left shoulder.

Phase 2Edit

Once his shoulder generator is destroyed, Ruk will occasionally use Fire Blast. When he slams the ground, he will create a ring of fire which expands to a very large radius (30m).

The rest of his fighting style is the same as Phase 1. His second weak spot is on his chest.

Phase 3Edit

Once the chest generator has been destroyed, Ruk will start using Inferno. Which when used, will erupt suspending pillars of heavy damaging flame.

The final generator is located on his back, and will always be revealed during and after using Fire Blast or Inferno.

In GeneralEdit

It is advisable to bring a weapon with high Puncture damage capability such as the Vectis, Lex or Hek, due to his heavy armoring even in his weak spot.

He generally excels in close quarter combat with his flamethrower, do not get close up to him and do not waste ammo, like Lieutenant Lech Kril, he is invincible with his generator still covered. The generator will usually become exposed for a short while after his attacks, often after using his abilities. Keep your eye on him and shoot at the generator when it is exposed.

Having teammates surround Ruk at all times will allow a flexible attack to wherever his weak spot is.

It is hard to dodge his Fire Blast (Ruk), tanking the damage with your shield is a viable alternative, as the said fire only deals 300s damage. You can also attempt to hide behind cover, just make sure it's big enough to shield your entire body (or you can crouch in cover).

When he uses his most dangerous ability -- Inferno is when he is the most vulnerable. The generator on his back will always be open after using the ability, flank your way to his back and blast away while being careful of stray pillars.

Utilizing Warframe AbilitiesEdit

Excalibur's Super Jump can do surprisingly well to jump over his tall Fire Blast, his Slash Dash will also bypass his wall of fire; granting you an easy retaliation.

Rhino's Rhino Charge acts similarly to Excalibur's Slash Dash

Zephyr's Tail Wind will make all of Sargas' attacks ineffective.

Ash's Teleport will teleport you inside his wall of fire for an easy retaliation.

Trinity's Link ability can be used to bypass all of Ruk's attack while maintaining an offense on Ruk's weak spots as well as taking out the surrounding Grineer.

[Edit-pencilEdit Tab]

General Sargas Ruk has many quotes from both The Gradivus Dilemma and during his boss fight at Tethys, Saturn. All of them can be found here. Along with Alad V and Councilor Vay Hek, Sargas Ruk is one of the few bosses who speak English when communicating with the Tenno.

During The Gradivus DilemmaEdit

When Supporting the GrineerEdit

  • Rraahudd Tenno! Now we fight together! Now we crush the greedy milk from their skulls. The Corpus will pay for their crimes with their useless lives.
  • You shoot well. You cut well. You serve me well, Tenno.
  • Tenno, of course you side with us. Of course the Grineer are your best option. We share your joy in Corpus death.

When Supporting the CorpusEdit

  • Rraaahudd Tenno! So willing to sacrifice your own. So willing to help these greedy worms. So willing to die for worthless cause.
  • Aattenthoun Tenno: It's not too late to change sides? Not too late to reject the Corpus lies? Not too late to save your kind?
  • Tenno, Alad will betray you. Alad will defile your kind. Alad will bleed from his selfish eyes as I crush him with your metal corpse.

During an Assassination MissionEdit


While Finding HimEdit

  • Forget the Lotus, Grineer are your masters. Submit for mercy.
  • What flesh is within that Warframe? I will crush it. I will fill my lungs with your death!
  • Too easy, I expected more! I deserve a challenge!

When Battling HimEdit

  • You think you are guardians? Grineer rule supreme! Grineer protect all!
  • You Tenno, you fight for treasure. You are just another Corpus machine to me!
  • Are you just mercenaries? Fighting for scraps? Where is this so-called Tenno honor?

During BattleEdit


  • Regret will be your legacy!


  • We are just getting started!
  • This is not over!
  • You fight well, your death will be glorious!
