The Telamons were a fanatic cult that believed in the coming of a destroyer that would signify a rebirth. The Orokin paid no heed to their chants until the Telamon's prophesied destroyer arrived in the form of an asteroid on a collision course with Earth.
Rather than sending destructive weapons or Dax soldiers, Atlas, a stone warrior who defied the Telamon's ideals, was dispatched to intercept the asteroid. With his Rumblers at his side and a punch that reverberated into the rock, Atlas shattered the asteroid which dissolved into nothing, silencing the Telamon's hymns.
- If Atlas wields his signature Tekko, the weapon gains an additional 6% status chance, for a total of 16% base status chance.
- Because of Atlas' passive, Atlas is able to resist immense recoil of Arch-guns, such as fully charged Corvas, Velocitus, and/or Larkspur in charge mode. Allowing to fire without breaking zoom and knockback.
- Atlas also has a slightly different Arch-gun deployment animation.
- In Greek mythology, Atlas was the Titan who held up the sky, typically portrayed carrying a large celestial sphere upon his shoulders. Other aspects of Atlas' design are similarly inspired by Greek myth.
- Atlas' Petrify ability is a tribute to the Gorgon Medusa through which the Titan met his demise. The hero Perseus, who slew Medusa, would use her severed head to turn many of his adversaries to stone, including Atlas who was transformed into a range of mountains.
- Atlas' passive immunity to knockdowns while grounded is inspired by the giant Antaeus who would challenge opponents to wrestling matches and was invincible as long as he was in contact with the ground.
- Atlas was originally developed under the name Brawler and is still referred to as such internally in the game files.
- Atlas has the third highest base armor rating of all Warframes at 450, surpassed by Valkyr's 600 and Valkyr Prime's 700.
- Not counting the Aura slot, Atlas is the first non-prime Warframe, and still one of only a few, to start out with three polarized mod slots.
- Atlas is the second Warframe to not include an alternate helmet on initial release, following Oberon.
- Atlas' appearance seems to be inspired by a chivalrous knight with a greathelm.
- Atlas has the lowest Sprint Speed of all Warframes.
- Though Atlas' main blueprint is obtained from The Jordas Precept quest, he isn't actually quest-driven, as the quest story line doesn't directly involve him.
- Atlas is the only Warframe whose component blueprints are acquired from Archwing mission, and in turn the Archwing boss, Jordas Golem.
- Atlas is the first Warframe to have an official signature weapon, Tekko.
- As an April Fool's joke, Digital Extremes announced a cross-over with Path of Exile titled: "Path of Warframe: The Quest for the Average Neck". The key art featured Atlas with Path of Exile's Templar.
