How to get the Kuva Sobek in Warframe



Spread the love

The Kuva Sobek is out now in Warframe and it’s about to be a beast of a shotgun. Since it’s able to use specific mods like Acid Shells and Shattering Justice, there’s a lot of potential here to unlock.

If the shotgun is on your radar, there’s a bit of a to-do list ahead. To help guide the way, here’s how to get the Kuva Sobek in Warframe, along with a few tips for choosing the best elements to kit your new toy out with.

How to get the Kuva Sobek in Warframe

To get the Kuva Sobek in Warframe, you have to get it through a Kuva Lich. Before that, here’s a checklist of prerequisites and other things you should have to ensure you can get this weapon:

  • Complete The War Within quest
  • Complete Call of the Tempestarii quest
  • Be Mastery Rank 5
  • Have at least one type of every Requiem Mod with at least one charge
  • Have a decent Railjack and versatile endgame loadout

With that said, you have to go into a Grineer mission starting at level 20 or above. Randomly, you’ll encounter a Kuva Larvling that will act like a Capture Target. Defeat them and before you do so, check what weapon they have. In this case, you’re looking for the Kuva Sobek.

If the Larvling does not have the weapon you’re looking for. Do not perform a finisher on them. Let them be, finish the mission, and repeat the mission. The best place to do this is on the Exterminate node, Telesto, on Saturn.

Once you finally see the Larvling has the Kuva Sobek, perform the finisher and complete your mission. Upon returning to your Orbiter, the Lich will announce itself and appear on Earth. Any node with a red mist over it has to be played. You’ll have to find Thralls, which are normal enemies with a slight damage mitigation buff. 

Perform finishers on these to progress the Lich’s progress. The more the circle meters fill up, the more Requiem symbols are revealed. Match your Requiem mods corresponding to the shapes they have, but they also have to be in the correct order. 

When you encounter your actual Lich in a mission, you’ll perform a series of finishers. If your finisher doesn’t go through, that means the order of the mods was wrong. This will result in your Lich moving onto another planet, and getting stronger. They can get as powerful as level 100, with a lot more obnoxious things to deal with.

It’s a trial-and-error system, so this is where the strong and versatile loadouts come into play. You want to be able to comfortably take on level 100 enemies and bosses in the event that you get the Parazon Finisher sequences wrong.

With all three symbols unveiled and in the correct order, you can then force your Lich for a showdown on a Grineer Proxima planet. This is where your Railjack is needed. You will have to run a small mission of taking down 60 fighters and 3 Crewships before heading to the main galleon and confronting your Lich.

Note that you will have to Vanquish your Lich upon taking them down. Converting them will not give you their weapon.
