The berserk Valkyr is a very violent warframe that can rip enemies apart with her Talons, an Exalted Melee Weapon that also makes you invulnerable. With the right setup, you can turn this warframe into a great way to wipe entire maps. Her Prime version also displays higher armor and energy capacity, as well as an additional polarity.

Valkyr Overview and Best Weapon Options

Valkyr’s abilities are mostly offensive, with Warcry and Hysteria having great synergy together and turning Valkyr into a bloody machine. Zip Line and Paralysis both offer Mobility and Crowd Control tools, but they don’t shine as much as the other half.

Valkyr can recover from knockdown 50% faster, and is immune to Hard Landings, landing with no touchdown delay.

Misc:
1% / 2% / 4% / 5% Lifesteal

Recommended Weapons
Being a warframe built usually on her Exalted Weapon, Valkyr doesn’t need any specific weapon setup, so Acceltra, Epitaph, and Guan Dao will serve their roles. Of course, if you can afford the Prime or Vandal versions, the better. Use as many Forma on them as you see fit to achieve the desired build, and you'll be good to go!

This build aims to use Warcry and Hysteria permanently due to the use of the Eternal War augment mod. In terms of building, you just need to amp up Duration as much as you can, preserving Strength and Efficiency at 100% to avoid any negative effect. If you need to replenish Energy, in late-game missions you can just aim your weapon, which will disable your Hysteria, leaving you open to damage that will regenerate your Energy thanks to Rage. For dramatically better results, replace the mods in the setup with their Prime or Umbral versions.
