Launched in 2014, Loki is one of the earliest Warframes from the time of open beta testing. He was also a starting Warframe along with Excalibur and Mag till update 14.0 when he was replaced by Volt. The name has been derived from the Norse god Loki, a trickster or mischievous.
Not being a very strong Warframe, he has the second-fastest sprint speed and uses his creativity to deceive, distract and sabotage his enemies. He masters the battlefield by playing with the enemy’s mind.
Nowadays, Loki is not so popular, as the newer Warframes have made him obsolete. He can still be used in stealth missions due to his longer invisibility. His unique skills and high survivability can be harnessed in some specific missions. One must agree that Loki is a highly specialized Warframe and should be used selectively.
How to acquire Loki Warframe?
You can purchase the main blueprint from the market and defeat the Hyena Pack on Neptune to get the blueprints of components.
Abilities of the Warframe Loki:
The mischievous Loki confuses the enemies by deploying his own holographic copies. The enemies are unable to track him and deal damage to him.
Using this ability, Loki makes him invisible by camouflaging himself. If the enemies can’t see him they can’t attack him. Clever!
Loki tricks the enemies by switching positions with the target.
He does not only deceive the enemies but forces the enemies to melee combat. He summons an energy wave to disrupt the projectile weapons leaving them with no choice but melee combat.
Loki may be a fragile Warframe but he is the second-fastest sprinter. Using his sprint speed with his deceiving abilities, Loki can force enemies to a surprise melee combat and defeat them. We will look at some of the Loki builds that harness the agility and trickery of Loki for the best use.
Loki – Invisibility Build
The Loki Prime Invisibility mod is the main Loki build. The key to getting through this Loki build is the long duration. In this build, there is no survivability mod. Can you guess why? Well, because you can be invisible.
The most important mod that can be used in this build is the Corrosive Projection and the Cunning Drift. These mods will be providing you armor reduction and increased friction and ability duration.
If you are running out of energy, then you can switch to the Primed Flow mod for gaining control over energy. The Natural Talent mod can be one of the best choices to be used for increasing the casting speed if it is running low.
The Hushed Invisibility mod will be helping you in killing enemies continuously while being in stealth mode. This build already goes pretty well with the energy. As of now, you know that this build is all about duration, so you will have to switch to mods that are providing duration.
Loki – Tank Build
The Loki Tank build is another important Loki build that is most commonly in use. The Tank build has a high duration and shield level but lacks energy. The most essential mod that you can use is the Armored Agility that will give you control over energy and ability strength.
Also, you will have to pick those mods that are giving you control over energy and efficiency as these two things are the most important in the mission.
The Primed Continuity and the Rush mod will be giving you increased casting speed and ability duration. You do not need the Corrosive Projection, but if you are running low on the armor, then you can keep it handy to switch to it when needed.
Loki – Radial Disarm Build
Though the disarm ability was used a long time ago, it is still in the picture. If you want to get a feel of the old school, you can use this Loki Disarm build. In this build, you will be getting survival mode and augmented mods to radiate disarm build.
Also, as this build has high energy and duration but a low shield, it is preferred that you use the Cunning Drift mod to increase the ability duration. More so, the Armored agility mod can also be useful in covering up for lost energy.
With this guide, you will be able to figure out the different augmented mods and their projections and use them in the mission. Each augmented mod has a. polarity within it is used that we have discussed above.
So, the essential thing in this build is the abilities of Loki Warframe, and its invisibility that we can use anytime and anywhere will be a significant drawback for the enemies.
