Warframe Ambulas Guide 2024 (Weakness, Drops, Defeating & Location)

Ambulas are robotic units considered part of the Hades (Assassination Mission) objective, which need to be taken out and hacked during the mission.

These were designed using an AI called Animo but instead of using them for their intended purpose, these were used by Frohd Bek to make robotic units called Ambulas.

Ergo Glast has sought out your help to destroy the Animo by sabotaging the Ambulas so that they detonate when reclaimed by Frohd Bek.

Ambulas Location

The Ambulas are encountered in the Hades assassination mission, where you are sent to assault the facility based in Pluto to reach the Ambulas.

Doing this mission however requires that you have Animo Nav Beacons, which are obtained in advance to begin.

Preparation (Animo Nav Beacons)

Animo Nav Beacons are required to do the Hades mission on Pluto and you will need 20 to start the mission.

Once you have enough Animo Nav Beacons, you may select the Hades mission on Pluto to start the attack on the Ambulas.

How To Get Animo Nav Beacons?

Animo Nav Beacons can be obtained from Ambulas on other missions that are considered Open Air Corpus Tilesets present.

Open Air Corpus Tilesets are part of maps that have air space for Condor Dropships to drop reinforcements, which include the Ambulas.

It is advised to farm Animo Nav Beacon on Pluto missions as the high level of the missions guarantees a better chance to encounter Ambulas for farming Animo Nav Beacon.

How To Defeat Ambulas?Fighting with the Ambulas boss

Once the mission begins, you will fight through the Corpus units or run past them until you reach the location where the Ambulas can be found.

This will require that you make your way deeper into the facility and later hack a console that will allow you to exit through the other side of the facility.

Upon arriving at the marked location, you will encounter the first of the Ambulas and will need to deal enough damage to knock it out.

Hacking Ambulas after it's down

The Ambulas needs to be hacked once it is down, which you can do by going behind it and interacting with the console on its back.

Once the Ambulas is hacked, there will be a timer and once it has run out, the Ambulas will be recalled to a dropship.

If it is repaired by a Remech Osprey, you will need to knock it down and hack it again or it will be considered a failed hack attempt.

Ambulas main ship

Knocking down, hacking, and defending the Ambulas needs to be done 3 times and once all of them have been taken by a dropship, they will return to their main ship.

The hacked Ambulas will detonate aboard the main ship, which causes it to explode afterward and all that is left will be to go to the extraction point.

Head to the extraction point after the ship has been blown up by the hacked Ambulas and the mission will be complete.

Ambulas WeaknessesWeaknesses of Ambulas

The Ambulas is a heavily armored unit that appears to be a severely upgraded version of the MOAs that appear on Corpus missions.

An Ambulas has the following stats and weaknesses:

Shield (500)

  • Magnetic+++
  • Cold++
  • Impact++

Alloy Armor (150)

  • Radiation+++
  • Cold+
  • Puncture+

Robotic (1100)

  • Radiation+
  • Electricity++
  • Puncture+

Ambulas Drops

Completing the Hades mission on Pluto will result in the acquisition of one of Trinity’s parts for crafting the Warframe and a chance for additional drops.

Ambulas can drop the following items:

  • Pressure Point
  • Ambulas Sigil
  • Fast Deflection
  • Heated Charge
  • Hellfire
  • Molten Impact
  • Blood for Energy
  • Orokin Cell

Defeating Ambulas will allow players to receive one of the following rewards:

  • Trinity Neuroptics: 38.72%
  • Trinity Chassis: 38.72%
  • Trinity Systems: 22.56%


  • Using radiation damage against the Ambulas proves to be very effective, especially with weapons that can deal a lot of damage in a single hit.
  • Moving around fast will help you maneuver around the Ambulas as they tend to be slow and are easy targets to hit.
  • Some Warframes may use crowd control abilities to slow or temporarily stop the Ambulas in its tracks while others can be sturdy enough to withstand its damage.
  • Making use of the environment as cover from the main ship can prove useful if no defensive Warframes are available.


While the Ambulas can be taken out easily by experienced players, those who are new to the game may have difficulties taking these out.

Radiation damage is effective against the Ambulas not only because they are weak against the element but because they can cause enemies to attack each other.

Trinity has been considered one of the more difficult Warframes to farm due to the process required to complete the mission but once you can deal a lot of damage, things get easier.
