The Corpus is a merchant cult, built on the foundation of salvaged technology and robotics and Warframe Items. They scavenge the outer systems, greedy for the Old War salvage. Their most sought after of all – the Tenno and their WARFRAME armor. Those captured are treated as salvage; meticulously dissected, integrated. The remains are sold to the highest bidder.
Cult’s Objectives for Warframe Items
The Corpus are a conglomeration of plutocratic commercial and industrial interests unified by a single trade language and a common goal – the acquisition and trading of ancient Orokin technologies and Warframes. They are the second enemy faction encountered by reanimated Tenno, and theirs is a potent mix of energy weapons and robotic troops. Many Tenno have made the mistake of firing at a Corpus crewmember’s head only to have the bullet deflect, and many more have fallen to the close-in charge of a MOA’s auto-laser barrage.
More technologically advanced than the Grineer, the Corpus crews and snipers employ many of the same attrition and ambush tactics of the Grineer; however, they supplement these with automated ‘security proxies’ known as MOAs and Ospreys. As well as this, their experimentation and integration of Orokin and Warframe technology have allowed them to create highly dangerous robotic creatures such as Alad V’s Zanuka proxy, which can easily capture the unwary Tenno.
Overpowered turrets and buy Warframe Items
MOAs are bipedal turrets carrying either rapidly firing auto-lasers or high-power railguns. Rather than taking cover or buy Warframe Items, which would be impractical given the in-line mounting of their weapons, these screeching killers will simply close the distance, continuously laying out a barrage of fire whilst letting their shields take the brunt of the beating. Fortunately, their personal defense shielding is relatively fragile, as is their physical frame. Ospreys, on the other hand, are flying proxies that serve primarily as a support role. They can lay mines, or launch shield-draining leeches. They can even hover over groups of Corpus crew and MOAs, protecting them all with a layer of rapidly regenerating shielding that can double the effectiveness of Corpus shields.
The Corpus also have stationary turrets activated by ceiling-mounted cameras, which are the bane of fleet-footed Tenno the system over, as they also activate shield-draining lasers that knock players to the ground.
