Loki, a rarely use Warframe. When compared to other Warframes, he is pretty low with the damage output and crowd control kinds of stuff. But don’t underestimate his abilities. Loki is one such master and tricky Warframe that deceit and deception to create confusion among enemies on the Warfield.
Loki Special Abilities
Decoy - With this ability, Loki can create a hologram of him, which will attract the enemies towards it. Once the enemies are near, he sets them with fire. This will help you to escape in critical situations.
Invisibility – This is the ultimate and most impressive ability of Loki. The Fact is, Loki is the first warframe to introduce the concept of invisibility. Using this ability makes Loki invisible for some time and the enemies will not be able to target him. Remember that on activating this, the enemies can’t see you, but they can hear you until you suppress it with some mods.
Switch Teleport - On activating, Loki can switch over to the place of a targeted ally or an enemy. If the target is an enemy then they will be confused for a moment at the time of teleportation. But I would suggest you use this Switch Teleport with his decoy. As it will help it get some duration.
Radial Disarm - Radial Disarm is a wave of energy which when emitted stuns and disarms all the enemies within a range permanently. This will be helpful in a difficult situation and is like an alternative for crowd control. The enemies that are not disarmed will take damage instead.
Best Loki Builds
I like to use Loki with the builds that focus on his ultimate abilities. We have suggested you with two Loki Builds, Invisibility Loki Build and Radial Disarm Loki Build. These builds are very flexible and can be easily skewed between invisibility and disarm abilities. Combining both is a good idea, but the only drawback will be the energy pool. So, it is better to have separate builds for those abilities. He is a manipulator and doesn’t go much with a direct attack, instead uses the art of deception, distraction, and stealth.
Now selecting the aura mod is also an important thing. If you are focusing on the invisibility ability then go with Energy Siphon, as it will help you to deal with some energy you will need. If you focusing on melee Loki build, then go ahead with Steel charge. You can also go with Corrosive Projection to deal with high-level enemies.
Taking a note on the mods, the strength ability mods will affect the damage caused by the Radial Disarm and the Range ability mods might affect the teleportation range and area of effect radius. And the Duration ability will affect the duration of Invisibility and Decoy. Keeping all this in consideration, we have suggested you with the Best Builds. Try them and find the Loki build that suits your gameplay.

Special Abilities Stat Table
Invisibility Loki Build
Invisibility Loki build is a standard and main build. Invisibility Loki build focus on increasing the time duration, which will be one of the main feature needed for any mission and it equips you with quite long duration. Here the slots have three different mods on duration ability which gives more than 35 seconds of invisibility. If you worry about the energy pool, don’t worry about it, Hunter Adrenaline will help you to deal with energy pool if in case you can’t find an energy orb and Vitality help you with some amount of survivability.
As the name of this Loki Build, Invisibility will protect Loki from the enemies and prevent him from getting attack directly. This doesn’t mean that they can’t hear you, if you shoot or make any noise, enemies around you in a range can hear you and will start to attack you with your last known location. If you prefer to be noise proof too then Hushed Invisibility mod will help you to deal with that problem. Also allows you to kill you, enemies, while being in stealth mode. When you use a Synthesis Scanner, you will get a double stand and when you farm you daily Cephalon Simaris standing will speed things up – if you use Loki in invisible mode. This Invisibility Loki Build is compatible will almost all types of mission more particularly in Spy, Solo and Rescue missions.
Radial Disarm Loki Build
Radial Disarm, Loki’s ultimate ability and a popular one most fondly used before the Void Relics. This Loki builds is quite retro and old school, but if you want to have some fun and blast with Loki this will help you in that. The mods used in this Loki build provide you with as much as range and is combined with efficiency and some amount of duration. The Irradiating Disarm mod on activating will set your enemies under confusion and make them attack each other. It quite fun to see such things in the meanwhile you could search for some resources or just get yourself in a room or closed area and use this ability and the enemies will attack each other. One more advantage of this Loki build is, it is a very good survival build when it comes to group mission.
Loki, once a meta Warframe that suited for all missions, however, it is not preferred much nowadays. But with a perfect Loki Build that focus on his melee weapon and his invisibility is truly a worthy skill set even today. Always remember to recast his second ability, as it can’t be used unless the duration ends. So, until the duration is over, find yourself a hiding place and recast your ability. Loki may be an old warframe but is quite worthy to with his unique skill set. Try the builds we have suggested and had fun. If you have any other Loki build suggestion, feel free to tell us.
