All of Baruuk's blueprints can only be acquired by purchasing from Little Duck, using Vox Solaris standing. The main blueprint requires players to be at Agent rank, while component blueprints require Hand rank. Each blueprint costs ReputationLargeBlack5,000 Standing, total to ReputationLargeBlack20,000.



  • Baruuk was announced during Devstream 119.
  • Baruuk is described as a "pacifist Warframe" and "reluctant hero", someone who normally avoids combat but is extremely effective at it once pushed past his breaking point.
  • Baruuk's abilities are described to revolve around mitigating, suppressing and preventing damage until reaching a certain threshold, after which he switches to all-out offense.
    • Fanart created by Alice Boudry coincidentally depicts Baruuk deflecting attacks.
  • Baruuk's design is inspired by Sudanese tribes.
  • The word "בָּרוּךְ" (pronounced Bārûḵ) means "blessed" in Tiberian Hebrew. Baruuk is depicted in-game wearing an avnet ('priestly sash') around his waist and up to the base of his ribcage, which was worn only by the High Priest of Israel.
  • Baruuk is the 38th Warframe to be released (excluding Primed and Umbra variants).
  • Baruuk is the first Warframe whose blueprints are obtained from a syndicate, Vox Solaris, using standing.
  • Unlike most other Warframes, acquisition of Baruuk's blueprints doesn't depend on random chance, similar to Warframes that can be acquired from Tenno Lab.
  • Baruuk's fourth ability, SereneStorm130xDark Serene Storm, is the first channeled ability, and Desert Wind Desert Wind is the first Exalted Weapon, in the game that doesn't require energy, using his unique Restraint that eroded with his other three abilities.
    • Restraint can still be eroded normally while Serene Storm is active.
    • Desert Wind is the second melee Exalted Weapon with innate range attack, the first being EWExaltedBlade Exalted Blade.
  • Baruuk's Exalted Weapon had a placeholder name "Paci Fist" in the dev build.
  • When another Tenno with a Huras Kubrow equipped is under the effect of Baruuk's Desolate Hands and their Kubrow's Stalk, an orb will appear on the Warframe, cloaked with the rest of it.
  • Unlike most of the Warframes, Baruuk is released with only his signature melee, Cobra & Crane Cobra & Crane.
    • As a pacifist, who is typically against taking offensive actions, he doesn't have any signature firearm.
    • Baruuk is the first Warframe to have signature weapon synergy, since his release, before Update 24.6.
  • Baruuk is the second Warframe to use another type of ability resource besides energy, after NidusIcon272 Nidus and later HildrynIcon272 Hildryn and GaussIcon64 Gauss. In Baruuk's case, he uses his restraint.

BaruukIcon272 Baruuk's tolerance for violence wanes as his hand is forced by his foes. Restraint is a resource unique to Baruuk that provides up to 50% damage resistance when the meter is completely depleted.

  • Restraint meter is displayed in the lower-right on the HUD, above the ability icons.
  • Restraint meter is initially filled, then gradually depletes when the following events occur throughout a mission:
    • Each attack evaded through Elude130xDark Elude erodes 0.6% from the meter.
    • Each enemy affected by Lull130xDark Lull erodes 0.81% from the meter.
    • Each enemy disarmed by DesolateHands130xDark Desolate Hands erodes 1.6% from the meter.
  • Damage resistance and erode amount are not affected by Mods.
  • Baruuk's fourth ability SereneStorm130xDark Serene Storm utilizes Restraint instead of Energy to cast and maintain. Using this ability causes Restraint meter to gradually refill until full or the ability is deactivated.
    • Restraint can still erode from using Baruuk's other abilities during this ability.

Abilities Edit

EludeModx256 Elude130xWhite
Dodge all incoming projectiles, but only while not attacking. Use again to deactivate this ability.

Energy Drain: 2.5 s-1

Range:120° / 130° / 150° / 180° (evasion angle)
Misc:0.2 s (reactive delay)
0.6% (Restraint erosion per attack dodged)

  • Baruuk enters a stance that causes incoming enemy projectiles and melee attacks to harmlessly phase through his body at angle of 120° / 130° / 150° / 180° relative to the direction Baruuk himself is facing (not the player's camera), but only while not attacking.
    • Evasion angle is affected by Ability Range.
    • Casting speed and deactivation speed are affected by Mod TT 20pxNatural Talent and Mod TT 20pxSpeed Drift.
    • Attacking counts as any form of firing a weapon or during a melee animation. Charging a gun does not count as attacking but charging a melee does.
    • After attacking, there is an approximately 0.2 second delay before Elude reactivates. The delay will start once a gun has stopped being fired or after a melee animation is finished.
      • Detonating explosives which require a secondary input will not interrupt Elude; however, the initial act of throwing or firing them will.
  • Ability Synergy:
    • Baruuk's Restraint erodes by ~0.6% per attack dodged.
    • While Elude is active, the seeking range of DesolateHands130xDark Desolate Hands daggers is doubled.
  • Elude consumes 2.5 energy per second while active and will remain active until Baruuk's energy is depleted, or the ability is deactivated by pressing the ability key again.
  • Baruuk's idle animation changes to a nonchalant-looking stance as his torso visibly vibrates constantly while Elude is active. Flowing Void energy waves emit from his upper body to visually represent the angle of evasion.
    • Evaded attacks cause transparent holes to briefly open at the contact spots on Baruuk's body, while a stream of energy particles move through at high speed as each hole closes.

Tips & Tricks
  • 360° dodge can be achieved with a minimum of 200% Ability Range.
  • Pairs well with weapons with a charge trigger type, since Baruuk doesn't take damage while charging the weapon until firing.

LullModx256 Lull130xWhite
A calming wave slows enemies until they fall into a slumber. Enemies woken by damage will be confused and disoriented. Short-term amnesia means all waking enemies forget anything that happened before the lull.
Duration:2 / 3 / 4 / 5 s (wave duration)
10 / 13 / 18 / 25 s (sleep duration)
Range:10 / 15 / 20 / 25 m
Misc:0.81% (Restraint erosion per enemy lulled)

  • Baruuk casts a calming wave over an area of 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 meters that lingers for 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 seconds. Enemies in sight or aware of Baruuk's presence that enter the area will gradually slow and then fall asleep for 10 / 13 / 18 / 25 seconds. Sleeping enemies awaken early when damaged, suffering disorientation for a brief moment, along with amnesia causing their alertness level to reset.
  • Ability Synergy:
    • Baruuk's Restraint erodes by ~0.81% for each enemy affected.
    • Damage dealt by DesolateHands130xDark Desolate Hands daggers does not awaken sleeping enemies.
  • Can be cast while airborne.
  • Cannot be recast while Lull field is active.
  • Casting Lull is a full-body animation that stops Baruuk's grounded movement and other actions.

Tips & Tricks
  • Lowering duration allows Lull to be used more often, eroding Restraint more quickly.
  • Can be used in a choke point to cause enemies to slow down and sleep as they pass through.
  • As the ability resets aggression on enemies, it can be used to obtain easy stealth kills during mission.

    • While Elude130xDark Elude is active, the daggers' seeking range is doubled.

  • Enemies that have already been disarmed will not be targeted by the daggers.
  • Daggers can jump to ally Warframes within Baruuk's dagger seek range. Daggers provide both damage reduction and disarm charges to affected allies; each ally can carry up to half of the modded number of daggers.
  • Can be recast while active to restore the number of daggers to full.
    • New instance of Desolate Hands will cause daggers to retarget previously disarmed enemies if within range.
  • Casting Desolate Hands is a full-body animation that stops Baruuk's grounded movement and other actions.

Tips & Tricks
  • Low range values can help prevent the daggers from seeking out enemies, making it easier to keep them for damage reduction.
