Orokin Derelict (Planet) since Update 29.0

Even the most culturally and technologically advanced civilization in history could not contain the menace of the Infestation. After an unknown cataclysmic event propelled them from the Void, Orokin vessels were left adrift, becoming uninhabited and overgrown. The tireless force of probing infested tendrils penetrate and dislodge the once majestic and opulent halls of these Orokin vessels.

—Derelict Fragment

Deimos is a moon of Mars where the Infestation b.svgInfested are the controlling faction. This Infested-controlled moon uses a tileset similar to the Orokin Towers, called Orokin Derelict, taking place on ancient Orokin vessels that are left abandoned to tides of time and tarnished due to long-term exposure to the Infestation. The caverns beneath the moon's surface are home to an Orokin device known as the Heart, the legacy of the Entrati family which establishes a connection to the Void to power all Orokin Void technology across the Sol System. The Heart of Deimos quest implies that Deimos was previously concealed in the Void, having recently re-phased into Martian orbit after the Heart begun to break down.

Deimos becomes accessible after clearing Kadesh, Mars, and does not have a Junction.

The Assassination Targets for Deimos are Lephantis and the Zealoid Prelate, located in the mission nodes Magnacidium and Exequias respectively. Lephantis drops the component blueprints for the parts of the NekrosIcon272.png Nekros Warframe, and The Zealoid Prelate drops the blueprint and parts for the Pathocyst.png Pathocyst.

Deimos also features a Landscape: the Cambion Drift. Unlike the Derelicts, it consists of a wide, open terrain on the surface of the moon heavily mutated by the Infestation's Grey Strain. In the northeast lies a large structure home to the Entrati family, now known as the Necralisk.

Orokin Vault[edit | edit source]

Main article: Orokin Vault


The Orokin Vaults, also known as "The Golden Door" by the Ostrons[1], are special vaults found in the Orokin Derelict tileset on Deimos missions which require a unique void key to unlock, called a Dragon Key.


Corrupted Mods[edit | edit source]

Main article: Category:Corrupted Mods

Corrupted Mods are dual stats mods, where one stat is positive and the other is a negative side effect. One Corrupted Mod will be awarded to each player after a member of the squad successfully opens an Orokin Vault. Each Corrupted Mod has an equal chance to drop (4.3478%).

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Deimos is the first location in the Star Chart where Orokin Cells can be found, making it a good place where to farm them due to the low level of enemies in the first missions.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Deimos, which in Ancient Greek means Dread, is named after the Greek God of Terror who is also the twin brother of Phobos.
    • Befitting of its name, the moon as a whole resembles a large skull with its lower jaw hanging open.
  • Mission Nodes on Deimos are usually named after fear, death, and suffering.
    • Phlegyas in Greek mythology is the son of Ares and Chryse and therefore a sibling of Deimos. Its etymological root is in the greek verb flego which means to shine, to burn, to blaze.
    • Formido is the Roman equivalent to Deimos.
    • Hyf in Old English roughly translates to (bee)hive and in Swedish it refers to the long, threadlike filaments that form the mycelium of a fungus.
    • Dirus is a Latin word that means "fearful" or "ominous".
    • Horend is a form of the word Horrendous.
    • Terrorem means terror.
    • Exequias is a Spanish (coming from latin exequiae-arum) word that translates to Funeral (rights).
    • Magnacidium may be a portmanteau of the Latin words Magna (from the word Magnus, meaning "Large" and "Great") and the suffix -cidium (meaning "slaughter" and "act of killing").
  • It is implied that Deimos, much like Lua, was hidden within the Void until recently in the game's timeline, as Loid mentions in Heart of Deimos that they "have been forced to re-phase into Martian [orbit]" before being interrupted by Otak as well as the quest's description saying "Deimos emerges in Martian orbit".
