Wukong Builds:

So far, we took a general overview of Wukong and his abilities. Though these abilities make Wukong a different Warframe than others, there are some unique builds in Wukong that allow the players to use different mods to kill a large group of mobs at once. Now let us see how the popular Wukong builds and the mods which can be used to create custom builds.

Ultimate Endgame – Wukong Build

Ultimate Endgame – Wukong Build

The first and the foremost Wukong Build that we will be discussing is its Ultimate Endgame Build. This build allows us to use every aura mod and any arcane as it works fine. This build is viable for the higher level of enemies.

In this build, the best mod that you can use is the Steel charge to provide increased damage of melee weapons. Along with this, the Ultimate Endgame allows you to use its Power Drift mod that increases ability strength and chances of resisting knockdowns. Its primed continuity mod helps in increasing the ability duration by 55%.

Also, the Umbral Intensify mod provided good ability strength and increased Tau resistance that provides a little longer survivability. The different mods that can be used here are the Umbral Fiber to give the ability and tau resistance and Vitality for regaining health reduction.

Along with these modes, the other popular mods that Wukong has are the Constitution for the recovery from knockdowns and the Augur secrets to increasing the ability strength.

The Adaptation mod increases the damage resistance that helps to increase the survivability chances. All these mods, when combined, make a great combination that allows the player to stand against the enemies.

Wukong Low MR Starter

Wukong Low MR Starter

The next build that we will be discussing is the Wukong Low MR starter. In this build, the Wukong is intended to increase its damage for melee weapon through its Steel Charge ability. This build allows you to use the Streamline mod that helps in increasing the ability strength.

This will help you in providing a great deal of damage. The Intensify mod and the Power Drift together make a great combination as they will be increasing your ability of strength and ability of duration at the same time, so it will allow you to kill a large number of enemies.

The Flow and Vitality Wukong mods are to be used for increasing the survival rate and the energy max. Similarly, the two mods that can be combined are the Continuity and Intensify, that will be allowing you to increase the ability strength and the ability duration.

So, all these mods, when combined, allow the player to use each of its abilities to face the enemies. However, there are few cons of every mod, but that can be overlooked as once combined with other mods, every con turns into a strength.


In this guide, we discussed the two significant builds of Wukong and how the different modes are helpful to the players. All you need to keep in mind are the mods that you can use together.

With Umbral Intensify mod, the best mod that can be used is the Vitality to increase the chances of survivability and increasing health.

This survivability rate will help you in killing a large group of enemies while protecting yourself.
