How the Build works

This Warframe Kubrow build uses the 4-piece Kubrow Mecha Set. Two Mods are placed on the Kubrow (Mecha Overdrive and Mecha Recharge) and two mods are placed on the Warframe (Mecha Empowered and Mecha Pulse). The set is then synced with a high status weapon. In this video the Nagantaka crossbow is used which has a base status of 39%, paired with the Kubrow it leads the Kubrow have 34% status. The Daikyu and Mutalist Cernos and other high status effect weapons also work well.

The Warframe Wiki and the Mods itself lack a lot of description so there is some discussion as to how the Set actually works. In the cases of personal testing, discussions on Reddit and YouTube comment sections, the conclusion is that the affects of the damage seem to be based off the primary weapon. For example, this Kubrow had viral damage (frost jaw + venom teeth) but I don’t think this applies as the Kubrow did not attack any targets to apply it’s status affect.

The Mecha Set operates by creating one or more focus targets that if you kill creates an explosion which kills everything within 30m. Usually extremely quickly as seen in the video with level 130 targets. Within the first GIF the kubrows marked target was the only thing killed which spread to instantly kill all 8 level 130 Arid Lancers.

I believe from testing that it goes off the status affect of the Primary weapon itself, even though the tooltip of the Warframe Mod says otherwise. It states, “their status effect” which I took to mean the Kubrows. I think this is poor phrasing and I believe it is the player’s Primary weapons status affect. So the more powerful the weapon, hypothetically, the more spread damage from killing one of the Mecha Set’s Marked Target.

Specifics

In the Gif the Nagantaka is not potato’d. It has in it; Serration, Point Strike, Bladed Rounds and an unleveled Eagle Eye mod. Oberon has on the two Mecha set mods which makes the Kubrow mark the targets faster. Sometimes causing more than one target to be up at the same time. Originally I tested the Set on Oberon because he innately has Radiation damage with his 2 which is a DoT but this didn’t really work how I thought it would.

The Warframe Kubrow had only 2 mods in it: the Mecha set mods. The gif worked exactly the same regardless of the amount of mods. For a Kubrow 7-forma build guide, usable on any Kubrow breed, a full guide can be found here.

For a summary; Dig and Ferocity (sahasa mods), Frost Jaw and Venom Teeth (raises status affect slightly, can be switched around depending on target faction, in this case it applies Viral status affect of 1459), Mecha Overdrive and Mecha Recharge, 9/10 Maul (for damage, raises slash to 1216), Fetch (utility), 9/10 Link Health (for health), and Primed Animal Instinct (utility). For a full dps build, I would switch out Primed Animal Instinct or Fetch, for Bite (crit).

Gifs of the Set in Use

Level 100 Arid Heavy Gunners.

Level 130 Arid Lancers dying from slash damage. I believe the slash stacks, if you kill the next marked target also.

Oberon’s radiation DoT not spreading with Mecha Overdrive.

In ‘the heat of combat’ sometimes the dog will mark more than one target.
