Companions are loyal personal allies to the Tenno. They will use their own unique precepts, weapons and abilities to assist their owners in hunting Warframe Items in their missions at any cost, even going so far as going directly into harm’s way to protect them. Companions are not a one-time-use ally gear like Specters, but rather equipped in their own slot in the user’s loadout via the arsenal.
Users can only equip one companion at any time. A companion’s stats, abilities, and behaviors can be upgraded and manipulated via their own set of mods. Modding companions are similar to modding Warframes.
Percept Mods: Companions Hunting for Warframe Items
There are currently two classes of companions: robotic Sentinels, and living Kubrows. There are many differences between these classes ranging from combat and movement behaviors to acquisition to possible maintenance requirements.
In general, precepts are mods which alter the behavior of a companion. Think of them as the companion’s “abilities”. Every type of Sentinel and Kubrow has their own specific precepts that cannot be used by other type (i.e.: the Djinn Sentinel cannot use the Carrier Sentinel’s Vacuum precept). However, there are precepts that are universal within a class of companions. Upon acquiring a companion, the user is automatically granted its respective specific precept mods.
Companions will use their precepts in a prioritized order, where the top left slot is the highest priority and the bottom right slot is the lowest. Precept mods do not need to be installed in the respective polarized slot to be used. Also, while the Arsenal UI only shows the first 4 precepts installed, a Companion will still use other precepts if they are installed.
Companion Skills in Hunting for Warframe Items
Companions will check to see if the conditions to use the highest priority precept are fulfilled, and will continue to use that precept until the conditions are no longer met. Then they will check each other precept in priority order. Companions will also interrupt the usage of lower priority precepts to use higher priority precepts.
