Recent excavations near Earth have revealed a cache of Sentinel technology, once thought lost forever. The Taxon Sentinel is a protector, a mender of shields. During the Old-War it saved countless Tenno lives from certain death.

Construct its blueprint, and you will have an ally at your side.

Trivia Edit

  • The name Taxon likely comes from the surgical term Taxis (taksəs), the replacing of a displaced part, or the reducing of a hernia or the like, by manipulation without cutting.
  • The Taxon is currently the cheapest Sentinel to both acquire and craft.
  • The shape and design of the Taxon resembles the quests symbol used in navigation.
