Focus Lenses are special items that convert a specific percentage of Affinity earned on a fully leveled (Rank 30 or 40) gear item to Focus points; these accumulated points can be spent on upgrading or unlocking Focus abilities. A single Focus Lens can only be installed on fully leveled items; if an item currently equipped with a Focus Lens is polarized, it will need to be fully leveled back to continue earning Focus points. Focus points can be spent by accessing the Focus menu on the Orbiter's Transference Room. These can be spent to unlock a new school, unlock or upgrade a node or increase the maximum Way Capacity.

Equipping a Lens[]

Lenses can be applied to the following pieces of gear:

To equip a Lens, visit the "Actions" menu in the Mods loadout screen and select the "Focus Lens" item. Note that once a Lens is installed, it cannot be removed, only replaced with a different one (which will destroy the equipped lens).

Players who have not completed The Second Dream quest will not see the option to install a Lens.

Focus Gain and Affinity Distribution[]

The school of Focus earned is determined by which school of lens that is installed (e.g. installing a FocusLens Naramon Lens on a Warframe will earn FocusLensNaramon b Naramon Focus). Focus points as mechanics which pertain Affinity distribution are as follows:

  • Warframe-power kills award Affinity directly (100% to the Warframe) without any further distribution, fully converting the Focus through the Lens attached on to the Warframe.
  • Weapon kills distribute Affinity evenly (50% to the Warframe, 50% to the weapon) between the killing weapon and Warframe. If the Warframe does not have a Lens installed, this results in a loss since the Warframe is unable to convert excess affinity.
  • Allied kills distribute Affinity 25% to the Warframe and the remaining 75% shared among all equipped weapons. If a Rank-30 weapon does not contain a Focus Lens, it will not convert any affinity obtained from ally kills into Focus points.

Lens Effectiveness[]

There are multiple types of Focus Lenses of varying effectiveness available, which can be acquired from different sources.
