But Tenno, you must be asking yourself: Where is this heart, if not in my chest?
~ Alad V


Before the current events of Warframe, an Orokin ship dubbed the Zariman Ten Zero became involved in a horrific void jump accident which had plunged it into a chaotic sub-dimensional space known as the Void.

Years later, the ship had reemerged and was recovered, the only survivors being children that had been exposed to Void energies that had twisted and changed them, they had gained inexplicable powers and abilities, which led them to be feared by the public and were of great interest to their Orokin masters.

Experiments were made to harness the children's powers, it was when a breakthrough with an Orokin researcher named Margulis that they realized that they can harness their powers through dreams. Through a process called Transference; the children's abilities can be remotely channeled through a surrogate body, a Warframe. It was through these children's powers that the Orokin could combat the Sentients during the Old War before their society's collapse.

Innate Abilities

The Operator has a set of unique abilities, abilities that come due to his existence being exposed to the void and then mastering control of the void. The abilities are as follow:

  • Void Beam: The Operator can focus void energy into a beam to eliminate foes or charge up things that run on void energy
  • Void Blast: The Operator creates a cone-shaped blast in the palms of their hand knocking opponents down.
  • Void Dash: The Operator turns into void energy and dashes in any direction.
  • Void Mode: The Operator turns Non-Corporeal, invisible and becomes immune to all damage in the surroundings.

Focus schools

  • Madurai, School of the Fighters
  • Vazarin, School of the Protectors
  • Naramon, School of the Tacticians
  • Unairu, School of the Indomitable
  • Zenurik, School of the Arcane

Each school has unique abilities which The Operator can use, for info check here.


Warframes are enhanced through the use of mods, these mods include things like:

Adaptation: Gives the warframe extreme resistances to anything that is used against them.

Rolling Guard: Gives the warframes complete invulnerability to any status effect and damage after they perform a roll.

Elemental Damage: These mods can be applied to any part of their equipment making it so that everything they deal gains bonuses such as fire, poison, cold and more as well as make them proc status effects some of which can remove most of someone's durability or remove shields, Completely ignore durability or part of it, induce radioactivity and Mind Manipulation, turning someone into an ice statue and more.

Damage Boost: A lot of mods are capable of increasing statistics and damage thousands of times over and sometimes even in the millions or billions, all though the latter would require fairly specific mods.

Damage Reduction: A lot of mods are also capable of reducing damage taken and increasing resistances or durability for warframes by massive amounts. Even without insanely specific mods warframes can reduce all incoming damage by 99% or more and increase their durability by ten times over, effectively increasing the amount of damage they can take by thousands of times. These are also capable of granting status effect resistance. Tanky warframes such as Valkyr even completely unmodded take less than a third of the damage done to her due to her high armor.

Defensive Mods: These mods are capable of increasing the effective defense not through increasing durability but rather through trickery. Some mods are capable of giving warframes the ability to passively electricute anything that comes close to them, paralyzing them in the process, while some others make the warframes passively reflect all incoming damage to the attacker.

Probability Manipulation: These mods increase the chance for certain events to happen. These include things such as manipulating the chance to deal critical damage, therefore, multiplying damage even up to ten-fold, the chance to induce status effects, the chance for enemies to detect, see or even hear you, the chance for the enemy's attack to hit, the chance to get knocked down or get affected by the enemy, all easily capable of reaching 100% and some of them even above 100% chance, sometimes even above 200%.

And these are just the tip of the iceberg, the amount of mods in warframe exceeds 1000, though it is impossible to mention them all, for more info check this.


Sentinels are capable of sacrificing themselves to revive their owner.

Shade: A sentinel capable of making its master invisible whenever there is an enemy around, attack and even increase its owner's damage.

Djinn: A sentinel capable of pulling opponents towards its master and even self-resurrect.

Helios: A sentinel that specialises in analyzing everything about an opponent. Deducing its weak points and strong points with a mere scan, it can also show the body weak points of any suit or physical body.

Diriga: A sentinel specialising in sniping opponents from a distance, dealing massive damage sometimes even comparable to the warframe or weapons. It is also capable of continuously zapping targets paralyzing them.

These among many other companions such as other sentinels, Kubrows, Kavats and Moa's.


Warframe weapons number in the hundreds, many of them capable of inducing several durability negating or crowd control based status effects.


The Archwing are "jet packs" which the warframe use to travel in the vacuum of space.

Odonata: An Archwing specialising in balance. It's abilities include Forcefield Creation (Creates a forcefield blocking all incoming damage), Homing Attack Negation (Creates beacons that reduce or completely negate homing effects), Homming Missiles (Launches missiles that home in on targets), Gravity Manipulation (Repels everything including attacks and objects).

Amesha: An Archwing that focuses on defense and healing rather than offense. Its abilities include Homing Attack Negation (Deploys drones that intercept all enemy fire), Absorption and Healing (Creates beacons that absorb all damage and turn it into healing pulses instead), Heat Manipulation and Resistance to Status Effect Inducement (Makes every member of the team immune to status effects and slows down enemies), Empowerment (Absorbs all incoming damage and turns it into energy, furthermore every ability gets enhanced stats like range, duration and power).

Elytron: An Archwing focusing on offense. Its abilities include launching bullets, missiles and distraction.

Itzal: An Archwing focusing on trickery. Its abilities include Invisibility, Summoning (Can summon drones to fight), Teleportation and Gravity Manipulation (Sucks in anything by creating a miniature black hole which then collapses dealing damage).

Equipment and Gear:

Warframes are equipped with different items and gear to help them in battle. Including but not limited to:

Codex Scanners: Scanners that can be used to gain full detailed information about a character including their strengths, weaknesses, resistances, biological information and even abilities.

Synthesis Scanners: A much better version of the codex scanner. This scanner not only analyzes all information regarding the target, but it also deconstructs the target into data and stores it into Cephalon Simaris in the form of information which can be then utilized to create clones of the creature inside the Simulacrum.

Specters: Specters are exact replicas of something. Specters can be used to fight alongside the warframes, and can be replicas of themselves or any other warframe or even replicas of enemies. Specters can be pre-made to be used in battle and creating specters of enemies will allow the specter to copy its entire arsenal and use all of his powers, however creating specters of enemies would require full information regarding that specter, information that can only be acquired through scanners.

Warframe Abilities:

Due to controlling the warframes from afar The Operator has access and can utlize all warframes, and as such all their abilities. Due to the ability to change bodies and warframes the operators can utilize all the powers of

Including all their passive effects, augments and traits.
