Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • This weapon requires Mastery Rank 3 and two Argon Crystals to craft.
  • The last attack of the Kronen's basic combo can hit enemies behind the player.
  • The Kronen counts towards the "Dagger Proficiency" achievements.


  • With melee auto-aim on, you will be reduced to a very slow pace when your character chases down running enemies. Often, in the case of targeting a fleeing Grineer Lancer for example, the speed at which you move forward to attack is nearly equal to his run speed, meaning you will continue to swipe at him without hitting him until he stops moving. 


  • This was the first Tonfa-type weapon in Warframe.
  • At 65,000 credits, the Kronen has the most expensive weapon blueprint in Warframe.
  • The Kronen is one of the winning weapons from the fan-created melee weapon contest (preceding the Silva & Aegis). Its design was submitted by the player Datareaper.
  • Kronen is German for "crowns" or "coins".
  • When the Kronen was first released, it was unable to do wall attacks due to a bug. This was fixed in Update 14.8.0
  • Chroma is the first and currently only frame to mount Kronen on his back differently, they are stored closer together, pointing nearly straight upwards.
  • Perhaps the name is a reference to the Hellboy film character, Colonel Kroenen, who prefers using bladed tonfas.


  • Kronen in Codex.
  • Datareaper's original Blade Tonfa sketch that would become the Kronen.
  • Kronen Holstered.
  • Kronen Slide Animation.
