Assimilate is a Warframe Augment Mod for NyxNyxIcon272.png Nyx that allows her to move and attack while channeling AbsorbAbsorb130xDark.png Absorb and prevents friendly fire from being absorbed, at the cost of shrinking Absorb's effective radius by 50%.


Rank Movement Speed Cost
0 30% 6
1 40% 7
2 45% 8
3 50% 9


  • Can be acquired by attaining the rank of Maxim under the Arbiters of Hexis, or the rank of Flawless under New Loka, and spending ReputationBlackx64.png 25,000 to purchase.


  • Assimilate reduces speed to a slow walk and disables all Maneuvers requiring the use of the jump or crouch buttons.
  • Players can perform the revive action, fire primary/secondary weapons, melee attacks, and interact with objects (hacking terminals, power cells, etc.) during Assimilate.
  • Players can still regain lost Energy with the relevant Syndicate Weapon Augments -specifically Entropy and Blight- and Energy Orbs; however, all other forms of Energy gain are disabled and Energy Leech/Parasitic Eximus units can still drain energy.
  • Self-stagger from explosive weapons like the LenzLenz.png Lenz or OgrisOgrisNew.png Ogris will not apply when this augment is active.



  • After its introduction and upon request from the Community, Assimilate was updated to allow for teammates to fire at and charge up AbsorbAbsorb130xDark.png Absorb in Update 19.13 (2017-03-09).
    • This update was later undone with Hotfix 20.2.3 (2017-04-19) upon feedbacks that it drains too much energy.
