This is automatically generated from our internal data but this data comes with no guarantees -- do not expect it to be comprehensive for how complex the game is.

This list will be maintained by an automated process combined with manual publishing with Updates (not all Hotfixes). We update often and new game systems may or may not be covered here.
—Disclaimer on drop table site

Digital Extremes publishes WARFRAME's drop tables on their website, which is automatically generated from the game's internal data. It covers the drop rates of most items in the game obtainable through bounties, caches, missions, relics and enemies. Since the game updates frequently, some game systems (especially new ones) may or may not be covered.

Due to the length of the full list, the official website for the drop rate tables can be found here or https://www.warframe.com/droptables.

Mechanics[]

General[]

Based on the official drop table repository, one can deduce several rules that apply to all drop tables in the game:

  • All individual drop chances of items in the same drop table must add up to 100% (there may be rounding issues due to drop chances rounded to the two decimal places).
  • Each drop table has its own chance of rolling a reward from its reward pool (separate from item drop chance). This chance can be over 100%, meaning that a player may roll a reward from said drop table more than once. Mod drop tables are an exception and are capped at 100% drop table chance.
  • There are multiple drop table types in the game that have an independent chance of rolling rewards. These types do not necessarily restrict the type of contents that a drop table may reward. For example, a Sigil drop table can drop resources despite there being a Resource drop table type.

Rarity Classification[]

The following article/section is conjecture. Content is subjected to change/removal as the game progresses. Please do not use this article for critical in-game information.

In the official drop table repository, each possible reward that can be randomly pulled from a drop table has a rarity classification based on their individual drop chance. Rarity weighting is a separate concept independent from classification and is used by the game internally to calculate an item's individual drop chance.

Drop Table Repository
Rarity Classification
Rarity Class Drop Percentage Range Possible Values In Drop Tables
Very Common 60.00% ≤ x ≤ 100.00% 100.00%, 91.67%, 86.44%, 77.78%, 77.44%, 75.50%, 68.18%
Common 33.33% ≤ x < 60.00% 56.34%, 50.00%, 48.71%, 38.72%, 33.33%
Uncommon 10.00% ≤ x < 33.33% 28.57%, 26.09%, 19.35%, 15.10%, 14.29%, 12.90%, 12.65%, 11.06%, 10.84%, 10.00%
Rare 2.00% ≤ x < 10.00% 9.68%, 8.70%, 7.69%, 7.14%, 5.88%, 5.50%, 4.35%, 2.58%, 2.00%
Ultra Rare 1.00% < x < 2.00% 1.84%, 1.58%, 1.36%, 1.01%
Legendary 0.10% < x ≤ 1.00% 1.00%, 0.85%, 0.67%, 0.50%, 0.40%, 0.37%, 0.34%, 0.22%, 0.18%
Beyond Legendary x ≤ 0.10% 0.00% (rounded to the nearest ten thousandths)

However, in-game, rarity classification of rewards in Codex entries, Sortie menu, Bounty menus, and Void Relics use different systems that are visual in presentation and are based on internal rarity weights after normalization. This classification applies to all items in the same rarity rather than individual drop chances.

Drop Table Types[]

Any enemy may have more than one drop table to pull rewards from. For example, a Heavy Gunner has both a mod drop table and a blueprint/item drop table, each with an independent chance of rolling a drop from their own reward pool.

Heavy Gunner Mod Drop Table[1]
Heavy Gunner Mod Drop Chance: 3.00%
Slip Magazine Uncommon (18.97%)
Magazine Warp Uncommon (18.97%)
Blunderbuss Uncommon (18.97%)
15 Endo Uncommon (18.97%)
Shell Compression Uncommon (11.06%)
50 Endo Uncommon (11.06%)
Decisive Judgement Ultra Rare (1.01%)
80 Endo Ultra Rare (1.01%)
Heavy Gunner Blueprint/Item Drop Table[1]
Heavy Gunner Blueprint/Item Drop Chance: 1.00%
Gorgon Blueprint Very Common (100.00%)

According to the official drop tables, the following drop tables types are available:

Over 100% Drop Chance[]

If a drop table has over a 100% chance to have a reward chosen from its reward pool, then that means it will have a chance to grant another reward from the same pool in addition to the guaranteed roll(s). For example, the Exploiter Orb has a Sigil Drop Table with a 300% drop chance, meaning it will choose a reward three times independently (with replacement).

Exploiter Orb Sigil Drop Table[2]
Exploiter Orb Sigil Drop Chance: 300.00%
Synathid Ecosynth Analyzer Uncommon (16.67%)
Tromyzon Entroplasma Uncommon (16.67%)
Charamote Sagan Module Uncommon (16.67%)
Zodian Uncommon (16.67%)
Thyst Uncommon (16.67%)
Longwinder Lathe Coagulant Uncommon (16.67%)

Over 100% drop chance can also be achieved by using a Resource Drop Chance Booster with a Clan Dojo Pigment research active, causing pigment drops to be doubled since pigments are guaranteed to drop from the corresponding enemy.

Note that Mod Drop Tables and Resource Drop Tables of Bosses or boss-like enemies cannot go over 100% drop chance unless hard-coded by the developers like in the case of Tusk Thumper Doma. This means despite being in the Mod Drop Table, Arcane Enhancement dropped by Eidolons will not drop more than once per enemy, even with a Mod Drop Chance Booster on or with The Steel Path Mod Drop Chance bonus.

Rerolling Drop Tables[]

Players will gain another chance at rerolling the loot drop table of a particular enemy that is affected by the abilities below. These abilities may act on the same enemy more than once to produce multiple loot drops. However, abilities of the same class (e.g. Mod TT 20px.png Pilfering Swarm and Mod TT 20px.png Pilfering Strangledome) cannot stack to produce more than two loot drops.

Bosses and boss-like enemies are not affected by these abilities.

Rolling drop tables on Living Enemies
Rolling drop tables on Petrified Enemies
Extra drop table rolls upon Enemy Kill
Rerolling drop tables on Enemy Corpses


Calculating Item Drop Probability[]

On the wiki, drop chances of individual items in a drop table are represented as probabilities which are calculated from the drop table's drop chance multiplied by the individual item's drop chance in said table.

For example:

Expected Value[]

Using the item drop probability, one can calculate the expected number of drop table rolls before a player sees at least one of that item:

This assumes that the probability distribution of the number of rolls that a player experiences before getting at least one specific item drop follows a geometric distribution.

Patch History[]

Hotfix 9.5.2 (2013-08-12)

  • Fixed boss drop tables. A blueprint will no longer drop 100% of the time being a “Chassis”. Every Blueprint has a chance to drop, but you may not get a blueprint every time.
  • Please see DE_Steve’s post regarding Drop Tables 2.0, issues we are working on, and how Fusion Cores and Mods fit into this.

Warframe friends-

The crusty Titans of the old RNG have been defeated by new RNG Gods. Update 9.5 (with subsequent adjustments coming in the next hot-fix) features a completely new loot table implementation.

OLD: Per-faction massive table with hundreds of entries of varying rarities.

NEW: Per-enemy table with half a dozen entries of varying rarities.

Yes, rare Mods are still rare. Yes, we still are tuning values (it's raining Chassis blueprints)! No, farming Xini will not yield every Mod in the game anymore... you gotta mix it up.

Thanks for your patience as we tune the new system!

ISSUES WE ARE WORKING ON:

-Blueprint and Resource drops from bosses is out of wack.

-Some UI to learn this stuff.

-Fusion Cores rarity.

-Proper attenuation for harder enemies dropping rarer stuff.
