Forged in the labs of the Zanuka project, the original Valkyr was subject to cruel experiments, leaving her scarred, angry and frighteningly adept at killing.

This is Valkyr, the tormented, the experiment.

Valkyr was crafted from torment, Tenno. Take control of her rage.

Release Date: November 20th, 2013

Valkyr is a berserker-themed Warframe. Driven by feral rage, her attacks rend her prey with fury and ferociousness, while her tortured cries break the imposing silence of the Tenno presence. Valkyr was unleashed in Update 11.0.

LoreEdit

Previously having thrived among the Tenno in her natural Gersemi form, Valkyr is known for her capture and subsequent torment at the hands of Alad V. The obsessed Corpus scientist would bring Valkyr to his lab on Themisto, Jupiter where she would be restrained and subjected to harsh experiments. This mad science would greatly expand the Corpus' knowledge of Warframe design, and consequentially left Valkyr maddened and scarred.

Ultimately, Valkyr was deconstructed and used to produce the Zanuka prototype, Alad V's companion fighting machine. However, blueprints of her components can still be found after defeating Alad V in combat.

Valkyr's abilities reflect her madness, accompanied by cries of anguish.

TriviaEdit

  • "Valkyr" is derived from Valkyrie. According to Norse Mythology, the Valkyries were a host of divine creatures in service of the gods that brought the "chosen" among the fallen up to Asgard (where the gods resided). It was generally believed that dying in battle with your honor intact was a sure way of being chosen.
    • This is further reinforced by her Kara Helmet and her Gersemi Skin, both of their names having ties to Norse Myth.
  • Thematically, Valkyr's design was inspired largely by felines:
    • Valkyr has visible claws on both her hands and feet, and Hysteria130xDark Hysteria gives her an additional set of claws on her hands which accents the ability's wild, feral nature.
    • Her Bastet Helmet, is named after Bastet, the Egyptian Goddess of Home and Family, who was commonly depicted with a cat's head.
    • Her Passive – added knockdown recovery bonus and immunity to heavy landings – belie a feline's agility.
    • A now-patched bug unintentionally caused any equipped Whip to extend while Hysteria was active, giving the appearance of a tail.
  • She is the second female Warframe whose base stats defy a trend of fragility; despite having low shields she has the highest armor value of all the Warframes.
  • Both her Warframe Profile video and in-game description verify that she's a product (or possibly a failure) of the Zanuka Project.
  • Valkyr is the only Warframe which has human-like audible cries, voiced by Digital Extremes community coordinator, Megan Everett.
  • Valkyr is the second Warframe to replace Alloy Plates with Circuits in her construction, following SarynIcon272 Saryn.

Edit Tab

A proud fighter emerges unscarred by time or malice.

"Our long deathless winter has left us numb. Our wasted animal within, ugly and gaunt, hibernates beneath our shimmering beauty. Why do these Warframes stir us so? They burn with our lost desires, lost instincts. Tenno tamed, but only just. Cast and hunted as game. Trapped and tortured, yet they remain... animals.

Less than their human seed, gnawing their limbs from the snare, devouring a banquet of suffering, obese with heat and acid... and rage.

That is why they will destroy us."

Release date: November 22nd, 2016

TriviaEdit

  • Building a Valkyr Prime will also grant players a Chordalla Prime auxiliary attachment specifically for it. This makes the Valkyr Prime the first Warframe to feature an auxiliary Prime cosmetic item free of charge upon construction.
  • Valkyr Prime's RipLine130xDark Rip Line shoots out multiple lines when targeting enemies. This effect is purely cosmetic, and does not impact the damage of the ability.
  • Valkyr Prime's Hysteria130xDark Hysteria emits an additional rolling energy circle on her gauntlets.
  • The design for Valkyr Prime, along with the CernosPrime Cernos Prime and VenkaPrime Venka Prime, was unintentionally leaked in Update 19.0, visible as a preview from chat item linking.
  • Valkyr Prime initially did not have a fully narrated and animated introduction video on release, unlike the three previous Primes before her (Saryn PrimeIcon272 Saryn Prime, Vauban PrimeIcon272 Vauban Prime, Nekros PrimeIcon272 Nekros Prime). A full introduction video with narration was only released for Valkyr Prime after the release of Banshee PrimeIcon272 Banshee Prime.
    • Valkyr Prime's introduction video is the only one that does not mention Valkyr by name.
  • By Default, Valkyr Prime's energy colour is a light blue, and sigils will turn this light blue as a result. However, when using abilities, the energy emitted is quite clearly a dark Orange.
  • When channeling during Hysteria, the back of Valkyr Prime's hands glow vibrantly. If in default energy colour, the Hysteria claws will be Orange, and the glowing from her hands will be light blue.

MediaEdit

VaultingsEdit

  • On September 11th, 2018, it was announced that Valkyr Prime would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on September 25th, 2018. Any preexisting components or fully-built frames will remain as is.

Abilities Edit

RipLineModU15 RipLine
ENERGY

KEY
1
Rip Line
Valkyr hurls forth a hook. If it hits an opponent, they are knocked down and damaged. If it hits terrain, she pulls herself to the hook's location.
Strength:30
Duration:1 s (combo window)
Range:26 m

Info
  • Valkyr fires a grappling hook that covers a range of 26 meters. If the hook hits terrain or an ally, Valkyr will be pulled towards the hook's location. If an enemy is hooked, they will be knocked down and will be dealt 30 Slash b Slash damage.
    • Pull strength is affected by the distance Rip Line is cast, as well as the verticality of the angle.
      • The more vertical the pull of Rip Line is, the stronger it will be, making it far more effective at vertical traversal than horizontal traversal.
    • Rip Line can pull Valkyr across chasms and long gaps; however, Valkyr is not pulled the full distance to the hook's location.
  • If Rip Line is successfully cast within a window of 1 second after the previous cast, its damage will be multiplied by 20%, and its energy cost will be reduced by 50%. Any successful cast thereafter will multiply Rip Line's damage by 40% and reduce its energy cost by 75%.
    • The duration of the combo window and the respective damage multiplier for the next successful cast are displayed underneath the HUD's targeting reticle.
    • If no casts are performed within the combo window, the damage and energy cost will reset.
  • Rip Line is a one-handed ability when cast onto terrain and can be used while performing various maneuvers and actions without interruption. When used upon allies, both Valkyr and the ally will also treat this action as a one-handed ability. However, casting on enemies will cause interruption.
  • Rip Line has a slight delay between activation and pulling either an enemy or Valkyr, as the grappling hook has a minute travel time.
  • Has a cast delay of about ~0.9 seconds between uses.

Duration:12 s
Range:12 m

Info
  • Valkyr lets out a rallying cry, bolstering the melee attack speed and defenses of herself and her allies while diminishing the melee attack speed and mobility of her enemies within 12 meters.

    • Damage is distributed evenly between Impact b Impact, Puncture b Puncture, and Slash b Slash.
    • Valkyr gains a 5 meter Martial Magnetism while in Hysteria, which allows her to lock on towards targets.
    • While Hysteria is active, its claws are the only weapon Valkyr can use. However, her other abilities can still be cast normally.
    • Hysteria consumes 7.5 energy per second while active. Hysteria will remain active until either Valkyr's energy is depleted, or the ability is deactivated by casting it again (default 4 ).
