Limbo, the mad hatted master of Rift is a powerful warframe, if used correctly. Limbo’s passive is Rift walk which revolves around crossing into rift plane and this will award you with some strategic advantages. This can be done by using the dodge button. While Limbo is in rift plane, he will be completely untouchable by the mobs, which is quite good in case of getting a quick get-away. Limbo will leave a tear between dimensions for 5 seconds, and the allies use these to follow Limbo into the Rift for 15 seconds. For each kill within it, Limbo will get 2 energy, which means that Limbo can replenish his energy as long as he is in contact with rift plane.
Limbo Special Abilities
Banish – Using this ability, Limbo unleashes a wave of energy that banishes everything that comes in contact with rift plane. Yes, it includes allies or any other mission-based NPCs or any enemies, will also be banished. If any ally wishes to escape from the rift, then they need to stay away from it. It creates 250 impact damage, as the cast is a heavy force that pushes the enemies into rift space. The enemies in the rift will deal with 300 damage impact following the knockdown.
Stasis – This ability allows Limbo to take the complete control over the rift plane and freeze the time for all the adversaries stuck into it. It also freezes all the fire and projectiles shot by the enemies. The duration lasts for 15 seconds and can freeze the projectiles/ enemies to a maximum number of 300, if the number exceeds then the Stasis will shut down automatically.
Rift Surge – This is considered to be one of the more complicated abilities of Limbo. All the enemies who are trapped in rift plane within a radius of 25m will be covered by an intense rift energy. The impact of the explosion has 5m radius and will take down any enemies who are bound to the material plane into the rift space. If they are banished using this, then it will last for 18 seconds. If any charged enemy is killed then the sure of energy will travel to a new host within the 25m radius of the material plane.
Cataclysm – this ability creates a dimensional nexus that connects the rift plane with the material plane. All, who cross the threshold, will be stepping into rift space, the court place of Limbo. The radius of the dimension will be 16m initially, will begin to shrink down to 5m before it dissipates completely. And all this will happen in a 30 sec time-frame interval.
The Cataclysm has different effects on the battle depending on whether you are friend or foe. If you are an ally then you will be able to move freely and can generate 2 energy per second. Whenever an enemy enters/leaves the casting area then, they will deal with 300 damage.

Cataclysm Stasis Limbo Build
This is the standard Limbo Build and focuses on its ultimate ability – Cataclysm, also it combines it with your second ability, Stasis.

From here it’s up to you, either you can use any of you abilities or a melee weapon to kill the enemies. If you use this on a solo mission, you might have some damage and energy pool problems. And if you have DPS team mates, then picking Limbo will be an ultimate thing for mission types like excavation, defense or other survival trails.
