Titan of stone, lord of the earthly elementals.

This is Atlas, the brawler, the strong.

Moving mountains is no easy task, Tenno. Atlas endures.

Earth swelled on the horizon, as the cult mocked Atlas with their chorus: "The stone shall shatter all!"

Across the system, every Telamon echoed that final hymn. Children, as far as Neptune, turned their heads from greasy broth and gazed toward Earth. Would that careening stone change... everything? Atlas kneeled down, head and hands pressed to the ground in apparent defeat as the Telamon's hymn grew even louder.

But Atlas was listening, feeling, the way the stone trembled to the hymn's pitch. The faults within the asteroid became vivid to him... and so a new song rose up. Rumblers. Erupting in a god-like rhythm, beating along the faults until Atlas, alone, struck the final, resonant chord.

A tremor forked through the rock until, all at once, the great asteroid exploded, its dust falling as scintillating rain sparking across the atmosphere, and then... gone. The Telamon's song fell silent and children, as far as Neptune, turned away and swirled their spoons in greasy broth.

Release Date: October 1st, 2015

With stone cold fists and a titan's physique, Atlas bends rock to encrust and bulldoze through all challengers in his brawl. Champion of elemental earth, he manifests formidable ramparts, crushing boulders, and golem brethren to rampage his stomping grounds. Atlas was unearthed in Update 17.5.

LoreEdit

This is Atlas. Hard as stone. Is it any surprise that his story begins with an asteroid?

Temple Telamon had cast a spell on the indentured masses with a song that heralded the coming of a great stone destroyer. A god who would shatter the world and lead them to a great rebirth. The Orokin mocked the cult's off-key singing, their spasmodic dancing, but the spell only grew stronger. Telamon broadcasts would oft-times wedge into controlled channels to spread their doomsday message.

For the suffocated lower castes, the notion of something more powerful than their Orokin masters must have been intoxicating. A brutal Orokin crackdown seemed to be working, until... an asteroid was detected on a collision course with Earth. The Telamons celebrated it as prophecy writ true. Divine intervention. For the first time in living memory, the Orokin showed vulnerability.

It did not matter that the destruction would be total. For the Temple, this was a sign of a new age.

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.

NotesEdit

  • If Atlas wields his signature BrawlerKnuckles 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.

TriviaEdit

  • 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' Petrify130xDark 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 ValkyrIcon272 Valkyr's 600 and Valkyr PrimeIcon272 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 OberonIcon272 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, BrawlerKnuckles 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.[1]
  • Rumblers130xDark Rumblers can attack/punch Roller floofs in Dog Days scene in the Captura.
