For the pistol mod, see Seeker (Mod).

Seekers are tactical Grineer units with yellow-green armor and darker markings. Aside from using the Kraken pistol, they will also deploy Latchers. This ability makes them unlikely to get into the front lines like any regular Grineer unit. More durable than regular Grineer Lancers, these can be versatile opponents.

NotesEdit

  • Seekers affected by Nyx's Mind Control or Chaos will deploy Latchers which are allied, causing enemies to become distracted by them if they get near. Although weak to a single shot by any Grineer, a mind controlled Seeker with duration can effectively spawn many Latchers, creating many possible entities that can redirect enemy fire.
  • Shadow Seekers do not deploy Latchers.

TacticsEdit

  • Due to their habit of hiding away from actual combat, they can be more likely to use terminals in order to sound alarms and cause lockdowns than other units.
    • This also means that you will often find yourself constantly bombarded with Latchers from Seekers that you cannot see, requiring you to roll a lot.
    • Use these time slots to your advantage as the Seeker is incapable of retaliating effectively, preferable to kill with a strong damage-per-bullet weapon to avoid being killed by their Kraken/Viper.
  • Armed with a Kraken pistol, as said on its actual weapon statistics, a single Seeker can roughly match the damage output of two Grineer Lancers, if encountered at close combat.
    • And due to its very high Impact damage, his Kraken can easily take down even the highest Warframe shields in just a few bursts on higher levels, and fires it quicker than the even deadlier Ballista's Vulkar.
    • The Kraken also possesses 14 rounds total, 7 bursts. Keep an eye out for Seeker reloads to take opportunity of the moderate reload time.

TipsEdit

  • As the Kraken has high Impact b Impact damage, it is very effective against Warframe shields. If your Warframe relies mainly on shields to mitigate damage, take them down quickly
  • For those hunting down Seekers (either for Mod farming or the Sands of Inaros Quest), Exterminate missions such as Adaro, Sedna or Pallas, Ceres tend to spawn a lot of them.

TriviaEdit

  • The Seeker was added to the game in the 2013 Valentine's Day update, Update 6.3.
  • The Frontier Seeker was originally a Seeker with its visor always up and wearing all-grey armor.
  • The Latchers deployed by the seeker can jump up ledges, like a normal unit would, using the same pause where the jumping animation would be; much to the amusement of any watching players.
