The factions in WARFRAME are the civilizations and groups fighting for supremacy in the solar system; their conflict is the backdrop of the game's missions. Because nothing in the game indicates an alien origin of any faction, it is assumed that they all are human, trans-human, or created by humans.

The only playable faction are the TennoIcon Tenno. Other factions such as the IconGrineerOn Grineer, the IconCorpusOn Corpus, the Infestation w Infested, the SentientFactionIcon Sentient, the StalkerSigil Stalker, the IconNarmer Narmer, MurmurIcon The Murmur and the IconOrokinOn Orokin are presented as adversaries, while the ReputationLarge Syndicates and the IconWild Wild are mostly neutral, but can act as allies or enemies to the Tenno.

TennoIcon Tenno

They were called Tenno. Warriors of blade and gun: masters of the Warframe armor. Those that survived the old war were left drifting among the ruins. Now they are needed once more.

IconGrineerOn Grineer

They say there is power in numbers - the Grineer are living proof. Wretched from centuries of cloning that has left their genetics in decay, this horde expands their vile empire through brute force, conquering anyone who tries to stop them.
—Warframe Official Website

IconCorpusOn Corpus

The Corpus embody the cold vacuum of space - heartless and bent on taking anything left unprotected. Driven by profits, the Corpus Board’s small numbers are supplemented by their legion of robot proxies, optimized for quick and efficient destruction.

Infestation w Infested

Infestation Diorama

The Infestation is more than a disease - it is a horror of twisted flesh, monsters made into reality. The blight consumes its victims, transforming them into unrecognizable atrocities controlled by rabid impulse.

The Infested are a single-minded scourge that belongs in the realm of nightmares, but instead chooses to invade ships and colonies, leaving only death and destruction in its wake.
—Warframe Official Website

IconOrokinOn Orokin

The highly revered Orokin civilization built sovereignty on a culture of art, technology and architecture. To prove oneself worthy of elevated social status, one must face Orokin trials in the golden and majestic Halls of Ascension. At one time a utopian society of omniscient leadership, the great Orokin Era ended in a divine realization of their own ignorance.

SentientFactionIcon Sentient

Whispers from the Old War have begun to escape the deepest shadows. What terrible secret calls out to be discovered?

StalkerSigil Stalker

Some have walked these desolate worlds while you have slept. Some like me. I remember what you did. I remember the day. [...] Now I hunt, dividing your numbers. Watching from that dark place, cataloging your sins, I am the ghost of retribution. You may forget but you are not innocent.

ReputationLarge Syndicates


Syndicates are groups of interest operating throughout the Origin System separate from the Corpus, Grineer, and the Tenno. These groups have their own ideologies and goals regarding the fate of the system, with some inevitably in disagreement with at least one other syndicate, though alliances between said syndicates exist.

IconWild Wild


Unaffiliated or Neutral lifeforms are those that do not side with any of the major factions, including wild animals.
