  • This mod can be acquired by attaining the rank of Genius under Cephalon Suda, or the rank of Flawless under New Loka, and spending ReputationLargeBlack25,000 to purchase.


  • Enemies killed by Pilfering Swarm have a chance to drop additional loot.
  • Works against Ospreys and other flying enemies.
  • It synergizes well with Desecrate, as corpses still remain for it to take effect.
  • Applies to tentacles formed by Hydroid's passive.


  • When this augment was first introduced, additional loot would only be generated if the enemies were killed by Tentacle Swarm, making this augment less effective at higher levels due to enemy health and armor scaling. Hotfix 17.0.4 changed this to its current effect, in exchange for the additional loot chance no longer being affected by Ability Strength.
