Warframe Elytron Build Guide

January 2, 2015

The Elytron is the tank Archwing and has mostly offensive abilities.

Bloomer – Fires a warhead with slight tracking abilities. Improved by power strength and range.

Core Vent – A defensive ability to stop the warheads of Grineer Hellion Dargyns.

Thumper – An AOE DOT attack which is very good for defending points in Interception missions. Improved by strength, duration, and range mods.

Warhead – Another explosive projectile weapon. Like Bloomer, but HUD guided and it does more damage.

Either Rejuvenation, Corrosive projection (for Grineer), or Shield Disruption (for Corpus). Although Steel Charge and Rifle Amp work for Archwing weapons, Corrosive Projection is better because it affects both attack types and does a similar increase in damage.

V, V: The only two V polarity mods are Morphic Transformer and Auxiliary Power.

Other mods
Archwing seems less power-intensive than normal missions, so I tend to focus on durability and speed. Thus, I use Enhanced Durability, Hyperion Thrusters, Superior Defenses, Argon Plating, and Energy Inversion. That leaves 3 mod slots remaining.

I also use Energy Amplifier (range), Auxiliary Power (Maximum energy), and Morphic Transformer (Strength) since all of Elytron’s powers are improved by power strength.

Note: The Warframe you use and mods you put on that Warframe do not affect Archwing, except for the Aura.
