A weapon from ages past, the Pennant is one of the three two-handed nikana weapons in Warframe. The Pennant saw use mainly during the Old War, but it has withstood the test of time, being more than capable in modern combat. Today, we’ll show you how this weapon works and how to obtain it in our Warframe guide on how to get the Pennant!
How to Get the Pennant
The Pennant’s blueprint cannot be bought—it must be obtained through enemy drops. The blueprint has a 7.3% chance to drop off of:
- Blite Captains
- Glacik Commanders
- Lektro Commanders
- Pyr Captains
You can find all of these enemies in Empyrean missions located at:
- Saturn Proxima — Kasio’s Rest
- Earth Proxima — Korms Belt
Once you have the blueprint, take it to your Foundry to craft it. To craft the Pennant, you’ll need:
- Credits x 30,000
- Tellurium x 2
- Rubedo x 2,100
- Polymer Bundle x 1,550
- Ferrite x 5,300
The Pennant is a fast weapon that can cut through foes with relative ease thanks to its high critical chance and multiplier. The Pennant will temporarily gain an attack speed buff whenever you slay an enemy with its heavy attack, and it stacks as well.
The Pennant deals very high puncture damage, making it very effective against armored targets. On the flip side, it deals incredibly low slash and impact damage, so don’t use it against targets with health or shields.
The Pennant innate attack speed is very low, so it’s important to get the attack speed buff as fast as you can. You don’t need to be constantly using heavy attacks, you just need the finishing blow to be one. Remember that the attack speed buff stacks, so try to finish off every single enemy with heavy attacks.
That’s all there is to the Pennant. If you have any other tips or questions, let us know in the comments below!
