Corpus Captain Dialogue

Corpus Railjack promo image

Empyrean missions against the Corpus revolve around a capital ship that must eventually be boarded, with multiple secondary objectives that must be fulfilled first. Each capital ship is headed by a Corpus Captain whose transmissions to their soldiers can be overheard during these missions. The Corpus Captain appears to have authority over the immediate AO, as they will give orders to surrounding ships and platforms in addition to their capital ship.


When the Tenno approaches the capital ship

“Tenno in the sector. Terminate them. Priority one.”

“Railjack interfering. Deal with it.”

“If those looters want a fight, we’ll give them one. Engage.”

“All forces, target the Railjack!”

“All Corpus craft. Engage enemy Railjack!”

“Railjack is within range. Blast it to fragments.”

“Launch fighters. Arm torpedoes. Give them hell.”

“All Corpus: remind the Tenno whose territory this is.”

“This is Granum space. All units, target the freeloaders.”


When firing torpedoes

“Torpedoes locked. Target in range. Firing.”

“Torpedoes primed. Stand by to salvage their remains.”

“Arm the warheads. Fire full salvo. Take them down.”

“Let’s soften them up. Torpedoes, fire at will!”

“I want torpedoes armed and dispatched now!”

“We need heavy ordnance. Fire torpedoes!”

“Launch torpedoes! [scoffs] Let’s see them evade that.”

“Arming torpedoes. Locking on to their signature. Firing.”

“Gunnery crews! Launch torpedoes!”

“Marines! Charge personal shields and get to your Ramsleds.”

“Ramsleds, launch! Bring me that Railjack!”

“Locating breach points! Launching Ramsleds!”

“Let’s take the fight to them. Launch Ramsleds!”

“That ship is nothing without its crew. Launch Ramsleds!”

“Launch Ramsleds. Kill them hand to hand.”

“A bonus for whoever captures that ship. Ramsleds away.”

“Altering tactics. Launch Ramsleds.”

“I want boots on the deck. Clear the tubes and launch Ramsleds.”


When calling in a Crewship

“Marines to Crewship hangar bay on the double! Immediate launch!”

“Corpus Marines, board a Crewship and engage them hand to hand.”

“I want more firepower out there. Launch one of our Crewships!”1

“Conflict is escalating. I want another Crewship on the field.”

“Deploy a Crewship!”

“Our forces need support. Launch another Crewship.”

“Let’s make this personal. Send in a Crewship.”


When calling in more fighters

“Intensify bombardment. Launch secondary fighters.”

“Launch reserve fighter wing.”

“I want every fighter we’ve got out there. Now.”

“Fighters, launch! That Railjack can’t hold out forever.”

“Clear the ports. Cancel maintenance. All fighters. Go.”

“All pilots to your ships! Clear launch tubes!”

“Fighter wing commanders! Mobilise and attack!”

“I want to see fighters from one side of the sky to the other!”

“Launch whatever fighters we’ve still got.”

“Aurax Crewship, issuing first assignment. Destroy Railjack.”

“Aurax Crewship entering the field. Excellent.”

“One more ship may tip the balance. Fire up the Aurax Crewship.”

“Order the Aurax Crewship to launch immediately! Attack!”

“I don’t care if it’s not ready! Power up that Aurax Crewship and get it into the fight!”

“Anchor beam disengaged. Aurax Crewship systems online. Attack!”

“Time to find out if our Aurax Crewship was worth the investment. Order it to engage.”


Priority Target: Autofactory

“The Autofactory has Aurax Moas and drones to spare. Get them to Ramsleds.”

“Time for an Aurax field test. Send a robot boarding party from the Autofactory!”

When the Tenno boards the capital ship

“Tenno have somehow been allowed to board us. Unacceptable. Wipe them out.”

“Your orders are extremely simple! Locate the intruders and kill them!”

“You failed to prevent the Tenno from boarding. Intercept them at once.”

“Oh for Void’s sake. Troops! Find them, kill them, and do not speak to me until it is done.”

“If those Tenno are not eliminated, there will be no bonuses for anyone.”

“I wanted them dead. They are not only alive, they are on my ship. Fix that.”

“You let them get on board. Do not compound your failure by leaving them alive!”

“Intercept those Tenno! Any damage they cause will be deducted from your salaries!”

“Helmets on, shields up, and exterminate those Tenno rats! MOVE!”


When the Tenno are exfiltrating from the the capital ship

These lines only appear during Volatile missions, after the reactor has been recalibrated and the Tenno is heading towards the Corpus airlock.

“All crew, engage the Tenno. Do not let them escape!”

“Massacre those Tenno before they leave the ship!”

“What I will do if you fail to stop those Tenno is nothing compared to what Parvos will do.”

“If those Tenno are not stopped there is a very real chance that we will all soon be dead!”

“If they get back to that Railjack, the unthinkable may happen! Stop them!”

“Tenno attempting to escape. This is your final chance to stop them!”

“I am offering total debt erasure to anyone who stops those Tenno from escaping!”

“You have failed again, and now they are leaving! Stop them! This is your last chance.”

“Your incompetence has left us vulnerable! Get after the Tenno.”
