Note: This build does work on fast melee attack. But since Volt's general physical status as more of a ranged Warframe, it is not recommended to use this build as combat during high level missions nor is it recommended to use this build for lvl 100+ endless missions.

The Eidolon Hunter ( Eidolon Hunt )

Summary

Volt is one of the most used Warframe for Eidolon Hunt. This build will focus on his ability to do exactly that.

The Eidolon Hunter ( Eidolon Hunt ) Build

VoltTridolonHunter.jpg

Breakdown

  1. Volt is one of the frame that doesn't interact much with the lure. So don't be bother getting lures if you have a good team run as it's better for the DPS and Trinity to do the job. Your job is focusing on casting the shield and delivering damage to the Eidolon's shield.
  2. Go near the eidolon then cast your Electric Shield underneath the Eidolon's leg. Go into your Operator to shoot with your amp underneath the casted shield. If the Eidolon move past the shield then go back to your Warframe to cast another shield a little further from the leg but not too much then repeat the process.
  3. After the shield is down, either go into Volt mode to increase Madurai's Volt Strike's Stack OR if the DPS is hesitant on shooting the limb then go back into your Warframe then shoot down the limb and go into void mode for the above mentioned purpose.
  4. On the final stage ( when the Eidolon is down ), stay in the Operator for 10s then go into your Warframe. Choose an angle that the DPS can aim for the head of the eidolon then stack-up 6 Shields and go back to your Operator to stack up Madurai's Stack for the next round.
  5. After the Hydrolyst is killed, proceeds to go onto your Archwing then make a progress to the gate to get your reward. DO NOT grab the reward when you are on Archwing as it will despawn 1 vombalyst on the next Tridolon run ( if you have spare night time in PoE ).
