How to Defeat Jackal in Warframe New War

To defeat the Jackal in Warframe New War, the first step is to shoot its legs. The boss will then start hovering around and shooting walls of lasers. Your job is to just keep firing until you break its shield down and the Jackal will fall back to the ground. When it does, during the brief period it’s repairing, you need to send an exploding MOA at the boss and then shoot it to deal the real damage. It might take a few tries to get the timing of everything right, but you’ll get it soon enough.

Now for the hard part. In the second part of the Jackal fight, you have to pull off the same set of steps. However, the problem is that the boss will now be leaking electricity all over the floor when you shoot it down. That will usually detonate the MOA before it gets close enough. So, to beat the Jackal in Warframe New War, you need to use your Shield Drone to escort the exploding MOA into the vicinity of the robot. Shoot the MOA when it gets in range of the boss, and you should be golden.

So, that’s the basic idea of what you have to do. The trouble is that it’s very finicky to pull off on the controller. You can kinda circumvent this by laying the exploding MOAs in a corner and place a Shield Drone to protect them all, then unleash them when the time is right. However, it’ll remain tricky no mater how you approach it. I wish you the best of luck.
