NotesEdit

  • As with other heavy weapons, the Magistar's wall attack is a horizontal circular swing that slowly swings the weapon around the Warframe, allowing it to hit enemies more easily compared to other wall attacks that require pinpoint precision. Unfortunately, this prevents the Magistar from using its wall attack to launch itself upwards, as it will perform the maneuver oriented horizontally regardless of where the Warframe is looking, making it fall instead.
  • The Magistar also shares another unusual property with other heavy weapons, namely its tendency to shake the screen violently while blocking attacks.

TriviaEdit

  • The name "Magistar" is based off a combination of the Latin magister, which means master or teacher, and morning star, a type of mace.
  • In Update 15.1.0, the heavy melee weapon family received linear buffs across the board. The Magistar is notably the only one among the affected weapons (Magistar, Jat Kittag, Fragor, Gram, Galatine and Scindo (Prime) to also receive a nerf, having its attack rate lowered from 1.1 to 0.8.
  • Magistar bears similarity in appearance to the mace used by Sauron from the movie adaptions of J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy novel, "The Lord of the Rings".
