Desired by advanced players, Loki offers a variety of specialized reconfiguring abilities. The creativity of Loki's powers allows players to master the battlefield through manipulation.

This is Loki, the trickster, the deceiver.

Whether you prefer to go into battle alone or with a team, Tenno, Loki will adapt to any style.

Loki is a fragile but fast manipulator Warframe. He has little in the way of direct damage abilities, instead focusing on the arts of distraction, deception, sabotage, relocation and stealth.

Warframe GuidesEdit

See Category:Loki Guides to read user-made guides on how to play this Warframe.

TriviaEdit

  • During Closed Beta, where all available Warframes used to have three abilities, his ability set was: Decoy, Invisibility and Switch Teleport.
  • His name is drawn from the Norse god Loki, who was generally seen as a mischievous, sly trickster. The Loki Warframe has abilities that further strengthen this connection, as Loki is able to turn invisible and create decoys of himself, amongst other abilities.
  • For a while during Closed Beta, Switch Teleport could be used on the Defense cryopod, allowing players to move it across the map or into significantly more defensible and advantageous positions - including locations the AI (especially for the Infested at the time) could not reach. This was ultimately fixed in Update 5.4.
  • Prior to Update 14, Loki was one of the three starting Warframes, along with Excalibur and Mag, before being replaced by Volt.
  • Loki's default helmet (along with the default helmets of Excalibur and Chroma) are available as unlockable antenna toppers in Rocket League.
  • In the opening cinematic of The Second Dream quest, the Stalker is seen dropping a Loki helmet on the ground next to Hunhow.

NotesEdit

  • Loki Prime is the second Prime Warframe since Excalibur Prime to have two additional polarity slots instead of just one, adding a second Vazarin Pol and a Naramon Pol polarity.
  • Loki Prime has an emblem situated on his chest at his left that resembles the Grand Master sigil. It also appears that this emblem moves on a different degree than Loki himself, as various movements change the emblem's position.
    • So far, only Loki Prime has shown to wear this emblem.
  • Loki Prime, along with Loki are the fastest warframes, with 1.25 sprint speed and with maxed Coaction Drift, Rush, Armored Agility, Sprint Boost and Speed Drift boosting his sprint speed up to 2.125, and with a group set up bringing it up to a sprint speed of 3, and finally with a full trial, a sprint speed of 3.125.
  • Loki Prime, along with Banshee Prime, Nova Prime, Oberon Prime and Ivara, has the second highest amount of energy (175 base, with 262.5 at max rank), with Volt Prime and Saryn Prime having the highest (200 base, with 300 at max rank).
  • As a Prime Warframe, Loki Prime possesses a special passive ability where contact with an Orokin Void Death Orb will make them release an energy pulse that grants 250 Energy to all nearby allies. This effect can only occur once per Death Orb, and can occur even if the Death Orb has been previously destroyed.
  • The sixth Prime Warframe to be released, Loki Prime is also the third to have the Orokin white and gold default color scheme after Excalibur Prime and Mag Prime. Incidentally, all three Warframes were the starting Warframe options for new players, Loki having now been replaced with Volt, whose primed version does not contain the white and gold color scheme.
  • Loki Prime's Decoy uses a Lex Prime instead of a Lato like the standard version, making it the third ability to be modified for the Prime version.
    • Curiously his Decoy fires the Lex Prime much faster than the Lex Prime's default fire rate.

AbilitiesEdit

DecoyModU15 Decoy
ENERGY

KEY
1
Decoy
Loki deploys a holographic copy of himself, drawing enemy fire.
Strength:N/A
Duration:7 / 15 / 20 / 25 s
Range:

  • Loki creates a holographic decoy that draws enemy fire when deployed. With 400 Shields and 200 Health, the decoy will last for a maximum of 7 / 15 / 20 / 25 seconds.
    • Decoy's shield capacity and total health are not affected by Ability Strength.
    • Wielding a Lato (Lex Prime in Loki Prime's case), the decoy is capable of inflicting an Impact b Impact proc that can stagger enemies, a Puncture b Puncture proc that reduces the damage of the target's attacks by 30% for 6 seconds, and a Slash b Slash proc that deals a minuscule 1 damage per tick.
    • Aside from the mentioned status effects, the decoy's shots do not inflict damage.
    • Decoy duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Deploying a decoy while one is already active will remove the previous decoy from the field.
    • If enough damage is done to the decoy, it will collapse and disappear.
  • If aimed at a ceiling or the sky, the decoy will appear directly below the aimed point, allowing it to be placed in higher platforms.
  • If placed in a position where enemies cannot reach:
    • Within a few seconds Infested enemies will swap their aggro to another target.
    • Grineer and Corpus enemies will keep trying to aim at the Decoy until it disappears even if they cannot see or hit it, making it extremely effective if placed in good cover against enemy fire.
  • Decoy has a tendency to fall through certain props on the map. This means a decoy can be placed on top of something, for example: a pillar, and it will sometimes fall through it, being protected from within the prop.
  • Decoy's shields regenerate over time.
  • Has a cast time of ~0.6 seconds.

SaviorDecoyMod
Main article: Savior Decoy

Savior Decoy is a Warframe Augment Mod for Loki that allows Decoy to absorb any fatal damage dealt to the player before switching places, along with reducing Decoy's casting time.

Rank Casting Speed Buff Cost
0 +20% 6
1 +25% 7
2 +35% 8
3 +50% 9

  • Enemies will focus on the decoy if it is deployed closer to them than Loki is, allowing Loki to deal heavy damage or escape an area without being targeted.
  • Decoy's defenses do not increase at higher levels or with Ability Strength, making it very weak at high levels if not placed in cover.
  • Decoy can be used in conjunction with Switch Teleport, essentially allowing teleportation to any point where Decoy can be placed. It should be noted that sometimes there is no switch and loki is just teleporting close to decoy, so careful placing is required sometimes.
  • The hologram blocks lasers from Laser Barriers, allowing passage through when deployed directly on top of them (as they only emit from one side).
  • Decoy can be used as means to find or lure out hiding enemies.
    • The copy will only start firing its Lato if there is an enemy close enough to be attracted, but it will not stop firing once all affected enemies are dead. Keep this in mind when using Decoy to scout enemy locations.
  • Can also be used to hold doors open, which can be useful when the following area is full of enemies, allowing players to engage them from a safer distance.
  • Limbo can put the decoy in the rift, making it completely invincible against enemies not also in the rift, although this eliminates its ability to apply procs on enemies.
  • Can obtain bonus shielding from Shield Osprey Specters, adding some shielding while increasing the shield recharge rate and delay of the decoy. The Specter will also automatically prioritize targets like Decoy to protect, just like it will prioritize following other specters. Note that the osprey is terribly weak, and the decoy will attract heavy fire, making the possibility of the specter dying quickly much higher.

Invisibility
Loki camouflages himself, becoming invisible to enemies.
Strength:N/A
Duration:5 / 7 / 9 / 12 s
Range:N/A

  • Loki camouflages himself and becomes untargetable for 5 / 7 / 9 / 12 seconds. While Loki's invisible, all sound effects are muffled and slightly muted. Loki's vision becomes blurry when he's not in motion, and his visual field becomes more sensitive to light.
  • Even though Loki is untargetable, enemies will continue to attack near his last known location, and will make attempts to retaliate when harmed.
  • Does not make Loki silent. Firing an unsuppressed weapon while under the effects of Invisibility will still alert nearby enemies of your presence.
  • Hides Loki from Security Cameras which prevents them from activating laser barriers.
  • Invisibility will also apply to any equipped companion.
  • Captain Vor's laser traps won't target players who are invisible, regardless of proximity.
  • Has a cast delay of 0.75 seconds.
  • Cannot be recast while active.

HushedInvisibility
Main article: Hushed Invisibility

Hushed Invisibility is a Warframe Augment Mod for Loki's Invisibility that allows it to reduce the noise level of weapons fired.

Rank Noise Reduction Cost
0 50% 6
1 65% 7
2 80% 8
3 100% 9

  • Use as a way of reviving fallen players without having to worry about entering bleedout yourself. Be wary of other revivers though, they will draw fire on you.
  • Can be cast in mid-air, which can help you avoid getting gunned down by large crowds during the cast animation, which makes you stay put when used on the ground.
  • Changing Loki's energy color to "pure black" (very bottom left color in the Smoke Colors pack) will turn Loki completely invisible, meaning this color gets rid of the shimmering effect.
    • As this means you can't see yourself at all, this can make movement and placement for melee attacks more difficult.
    • It can be a way in order to take a clear picture if you disable HUD.
  • As general rule when playing with others - mind your positioning, flank enemies, keep your distance from allies, and never stay in the line of fire between allies and enemies.

  • If active before a boss cut-scene triggers, when the cut-scene finishes Loki will become visible however the duration will not reset.
  • Kubrows will be cloaked but will still be targeted by enemies.

    Switch Teleport
    Loki instantaneously swaps positions with a target, confusing the enemy.
    Strength:N/A
    Duration:N/A
    Range:25 / 40 / 60 / 75 m

    • Loki swaps positions with a target within 25 / 40 / 60 / 75 meters, whether it be friendly or hostile. Switching positions with an enemy will cause it to become confused for a brief duration. The enemy will not attack until it reorients itself.
      • Cast range is affected by Ability Range.
      • Confusion will not apply to boss-type enemies.
      • Switch Teleport also swaps the directions Loki and the target were facing.
    • If attempting to Switch Teleport a unit to an out-of-bounds location, Loki will simply teleport to them instead.
    • Requires direct line of sight. Slightly changing position sometimes can re-enable otherwise invalid target.
    • Can be used in the air.
    • Has a cast time of 0.5 seconds.
    • Grineer Commanders use a similar ability, stunning Tenno for a short moment.

    SafeguardSwitch2
    Main article: Safeguard Switch

    Safeguard Switch is a Warframe Augment Mod for Loki, that makes allies targeted by Switch Teleport become invulnerable to damage for a short period.

    Rank Duration Cost
    0 3s 6
    1 4s 7
    2 5s 8
    3 6s 9

    • Switch Teleport can be used on:
      • Enemies (including Bosses, excluding Lephantis)
      • Corpses and gibs (they tend to teleport to a place of death, without switching).
      • Teammates (teammates cannot be switched from active extraction zone)
      • Decoys created by yourself, a fellow Loki, or a Saryn's Molt.
    • Unlike Ash, Loki is unable to teleport to objects.
    • You can easily move past a group of enemies by targeting the enemy furthest away, Switch teleporting, and then continuing to run.
    • Switch Teleport also works on allies who are bleeding out, allowing the transportation of them to a safer area out of the way of enemies if necessary.

    KEY

    Radial Disarm
    Lets forth a wave of energy, disrupting the projectile weapons of enemies in range and forcing them to revert to melee combat.
    Strength:200 / 200 / 350 / 500
    Duration:
    Range:10 / 13 / 17 / 20 m

    • Loki releases a pulse of manipulative energy, temporarily stunning and permanently disarming enemies within a 10 / 13 / 17 / 20 meter radius. The pulse inflicts 200 / 200 / 350 / 500 Impact b Impact damage to specific enemy units.
    • Chargers, Ancients, the Zanuka Hunter, the Grustrag Three, and bosses cannot be disarmed.
    • Most other enemies will be permanently disarmed:
      • Permanently removes the arms of Infested Leapers, Runners, Volatile Runners, and Crawlers.
        • These units are still capable of moving, attacking, and using their abilities as normal.
      • Permanently forces Infested Mutalist Ospreys to the ground and removes their abilities.
      • Permanently forces Corpus Ospreys to the ground, removes their abilities, and depletes their weapon systems.
        • Oxium Ospreys cannot be forced to the ground and retain their abilities and weapons systems.
        • Does not remove Shield Ospreys' ability to shield allies.
      • Permanently depletes the weapon systems on MOAs, forcing them to melee with kicks.
    • Has no effect on Capture Targets or non-Infested enemies who are already classified as melee-oriented (e.g., Butchers, Guardsmen, and Scorpions).
    • Has a cast time of 0.9 seconds and delay between uses of 0.9 seconds.

  • Sometimes, if Radial Disarm is used on enemies that have already been affected by it, they won't be stunned like they normally should.
  • Rarely, using Irradiating Disarm on infested enemies coated in the Ancient Healer aura may cause none of the infested to take a Radiation b Radiation proc except the healer.
  • Loki may sometimes cast Radial Disarm with a melee weapon still in his hand. This is merely visual, however.
  • Casting Radial Disarm in the index causes enemies to stop spawning, making it impossible to continue the mission.

    Edit Tab

    • It is possible to Switch Teleport with your Decoy to shortcut around the map, get out of tough spots or access higher vantage points.
    • Mods such as Continuity and Streamline can be extremely useful in extending the duration of powers (Decoy and Invisibility) and lowering their power cost.
    • Loki relies little on Power Strength as it only increases the damage that Radial Disarm deal, which is more of a secondary utility. Therefore Overextended can be used with little impunity, while vastly increasing Radial Disarm's range, as well as Switch Teleport's.
    • Loki is the fastest Warframe by a very noticeable margin, and this allows him to move, avoid, or deal damage in battles extremely quickly.
    • Although he has weaker shields in general combat, the damage Loki deals while invisible is extremely high and his other abilities can manipulate entire crowds of enemies to make use of this effect.
    • Loki's Decoy can be placed in positions other players cannot get to, such as in between two closely packed crates. Because of this trait, the Decoy is effectively protected from most directions of fire. This helps in increasing the Decoy's life span while also potentially distracting an entire wave of enemies. Along with Decoy's high aggro priority towards enemies, Loki can make most Defense missions much easier to handle depending on the map and the location of the Decoy's placement.
    • Decoy with Switch Teleport can be used to get through Corpus laser doors, though its more cost effective to use the Decoy to block the beams, allowing yourself or your team through as well.
    • Switch Teleport can be useful to move your team mates to a better position or the extraction point. Also, you can switch with wounded allies, making it easier for someone to revive them.
    • Decoy is also great against Infested, as the Infested will crowd around the decoy.  It also helps to get rid of Runners due to their nature.
    • Decoy can be used to great effect against Infested, especially because Infested maps often include pits.  Deploy the decoy at the bottom of a chasm, and the Infested will leap into the chasm after it, dying instantly.  This will, however, forfeit any loot.
    • Combining Invisibility with a Shotgun will allow you to get close and deliver devastating damage to unsuspecting foes.
    • Switch Teleport can also be used to effectively immobilize bosses, by getting into a tight spot then switching with them.
    • Be extremely careful using Loki in pitched combat. Loki is the least durable Warframe by a noticeable margin. If he is left without energy, he becomes incredibly easy to kill.
    • Radial Disarm is capable of removing any buff/debuff from a Leader (Fire/Cold animation is still there but does nothing, Energy/Health is not drained, other units are not given a buff.

    Loki's Decoy PistolEdit

    The Pistol used by Loki's Decoy power has the same skin as a regular Lato. It will "fire" like a regular lato in the direction of the nearest enemy to the decoy but will do no damage and will not shoot any projectile, It is hypothesized that the shooting animation is to emphasize the aggro effect of the decoy itself.

    BugsEdit

    • When in a cell, excessive lag can cause a dying decoy to become a corpse before actual removal for its duration.
    • A set of videos is provided with a respected number that shows some of the bugs encountered with Loki:
    1. Decoy + position swap in a wall = Fall to nothing
    2. Decoy in extermination missions, will lower the enemy count by one when the decoy expires
    3. Decoy in defense missions, will stall the timer after all enemies have been defeated.
    4. There is also a "cannot be used in air" bug where the server thinks Loki is in the air even if he isn't.  Hitting the melee key will fix this.
