The Rock Drake Tek Saddle is a saddle introduced in Aberration and also available on Genesis: Part 1, Genesis: Part 2 and Lost Island. It is used to ride a  Rock Drake after you have tamed it. It is an upgraded version of the  Rock Drake Saddle. Much like its predecessor, it camouflages along with the mount rider as well.

One shot with the plasma cannon consumes 4% of the equipped element, that means that you can shoot 25 times with one element.


In addition to providing more armor than the regular saddle, pressing the melee key (default Ctrl) while riding a Rock Drake with the Tek Saddle will activate a plasma cannon.


The Engram is unlocked by killing Rockwell on Beta/Medium Difficulty.


  • Console users cannot enter first person while using this saddle, as RB and R1 activates the plasma cannon.
  • It is unknown if this was intended or is a glitch, but the plasma shots may be fired from the saddle while the rock drake is invisible, without removing the invisibility.
  • Max saddle armor is 634.8.
  • The saddle has 3 seats.
  • This is the 2nd most expensive Tek Saddle costing element. It costs 75 element.
