Overview

The Valkyr Specter at the Jupiter junction is annoying and hard to beat, Squishy but deadly. This guide will walk you through the strategy and builds needed in order to defeat her.

Build requirements

The builds designed in this guide will require you 0 forma, It's however recommended to craft some Low Energy Pads ( from clan dojo ) or Medium Energy pads ( from syndicate ) and add to it to the Gear slot with a hotkey.

How to bind a hotkey for Gear

To setup the first slot Gear for the energy pads, you need to do the following.

Go to Setting -> Change key binding -> Gear Slot 1 -> choose a key that is not already bound in Warframe etc arrow keys.

How to acquire the missing mods

You might be missing some of the mods if you are a new player, A good way to get the missing mods is by asking your Clanmates for some starter mods. It's also a good idea to tell your clanmates to max out the mods for you if you are low on Endo, it will be cheap for veteran players.

Weapons

We will go through some early game weapons (< MR 5) and weapon builds that you can use to defeat the specter.

You can still be able to defeat the valkyr specter if you do not have all of the mods or all of the mods ranks above. It is however a very high completion rate if you do have all of the mods. Arcanes are optional.

Usage

  1. When you start the Junction, use energy pads to max out Volt's Energy.
  2. Jump to the left and cast Volts third ability (Electric Shield).
  3. Cast Volts first ability (Shock) to the shield so it gets damage buff.
  4. use Volt's fourth ability (Discharge) to stun Valkyr.
  5. Stay behind the shield to avoid Valkyr's bullets, aim to valkyrs head with your Primary weapon (Vectis or Weapon2) with maximum zoom and shoot at her rapidly. Be as quick as you possibly can the reason that Volts

Variation

If you have any Prime mods, replace them to the build for higher stats. This will require you to use some forma though. Zenurik Maxed Energizing Dash is also very useful and it can help you to use fewer energy pads.

You can still be able to defeat the valkyr specter if you do not have all of the mods or all of the mods ranks above. It is however a very high completion rate if you do have all of the mods. Arcanes are optional.

Usage

  1. Start to use your Energy Pads till you have atleast 200 energy.
  2. Cast your third ability (Polarize) near Valkyr to spawn some shards and do some damage to the specter.
  3. Cast your second ability (Magnetize) onto Valkyr Specter and shoot everything that you have. If you do enough damage when the duration of Magnetize is done, the explosion that is made after Magnetizes duration will finish off Valkyr with one-shot.
  4. Remember to stay near Valkyr so all of the shotgun bullets gain full damage. But do not stay next to her else if she activates her Hysteria ability then Magnetize will become useless and completing your run will be more challenging.
  5. Do not stay near Valkyr when she activates Hysteria and try to run around untill her Hysterias aura is gone.

Weaknesses

The only weakness is that Mag is a squishy frame so make sure to cast her abilities quickly and don't stay close to Valkyr. Hide behind objects if she starts to shoot at you and you are low on energy.
