Fuses with a Warframe to unlock the Exilus Mod Slot.

—In-Game Description

The Exilus Adapter is a special item that can be fused with a Warframe to unlock an Exilus Mod Slot, which is a special additional slot that can be used solely for Exilus Mods, aka Utility Mods. Each Warframe can only have a single Exilus Slot active, and any eligible mods used on the slot will consume mod capacity, like normal mods. An Exilus slot can be polarized using Forma.

How to UseEdit


Warframe mod slots (blue) with aura (green) and exilus mod slot (pink) marked

To use an Exilus Adapter on PC, click on a Warframe's locked Exilus Slot, which will open a prompt asking for confirmation to use the Adapter to unlock the slot. If a locked Exilus Slot is clicked without Exilus Adapters being available, a prompt will appear which will ask whether the player wishes to purchase an Exilus Adapter from the Market.

On Console, you must try to equip an Exilus mod on a locked Exilus slot with an Exilus Adapter in your inventory. If you do, a dialogue box will open asking if you want to fuse the adapter with the current Warframe. Once unlocked, you can change the polarity of the slot with Forma.

  • During the Natah quest Tyl Regor remarks that the Exilus Adapter was an ancient Forma.
