The Corpus Ice Planet is a planetside tileset introduced in Update 14.5 with the Operation Cryotic Front event. This tileset consists of a planet covered in ice, upon which Corpus underground outposts mingle with the wrecks of crashed Corpus ships and icy caverns both natural and manmade. The Ice Planet tileset became the default planetside tileset for Europa in Update 15.0, and also appears in nodes on Mars and Neptune.
Environmental Hazards[edit | edit source]
Cryo Temperatures[edit | edit source]
Outdoor sections of the Ice Planet tileset experience extreme cold, which has a detrimental effect on players in the form of a constant drain on their shields at a rate of 15 shield points per second. To counteract this, special Heat Generator structures are scattered throughout said sections, which prevent said shield degeneration if players are within their radius. Although Heat Generators offer protection, they can be destroyed by anyone, even the Tenno. Caution is advised when fighting outdoors.
Ice Water[edit | edit source]
Some bodies of water on the map have a random chance of inflicting Cold status proc to players if they stand within them for too long. A good way to check if a given pool is safe is to see if enemies will (or even can) readily run through it.
Destructible Features[edit | edit source]
Like with the Infested Ship tileset, certain parts of this tileset feature objects that self-destruct upon player contact, like collapsing ice bridges that can catch players unaware and send them to an abyss below.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This tileset features a battle between a Corpus ship and a Fomorian-class battleship visible in the skies above.
- Some pieces of wreckage show signs of Infestation on them, hinting at the probable cause of the ships' crash.
- This tileset was the second tileset to feature a Hijack type mission, after the Grineer Shipyard tileset on Ceres.
- This tileset features some unique features such as large Corpus-designed fans that can be used for quick travel in a specific direction. The effect is similar to that of the fans located in Councilor Vay Hek's boss room on Oro, Earth.
- Near the extraction point, players may find blackened bodies of Corpus Crewman laying around.
- A hologram can be seen showing the Zanuka.
- Due to how the hologram is fading, this can be easily missed
- On Neptune (and possibly Mars) missions that use this tileset, Jupiter can still be seen prominently in the sky despite actually being hundreds of thousands of miles away from the planet.
- This is because the tile set is used the most on Europa, one of Jupiter's moons.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
- There was a bug in which players fell through the tileset upon entering the mission. This was fixed on Hotfix 14.5.1, but this bug still occurs in other parts of the map.
