A frigid energy blast that freezes targets in their tracks.
Strength:150 / 225 / 275 / 350 (DmgColdSmall64.png Cold main damage)
50 / 100 / 125 / 150 (DmgColdSmall64.png Cold area damage)
Duration:5 / 7 / 12 / 15 s (freeze duration)
Misc:600% (DmgColdSmall64.png Cold status chance)
50% (freeze health threshold)
3m (impact radius)

  • Frost launches an icy projectile in the direction of the reticle, traveling until it reaches an enemy or a surface. The projectile deals 150 / 225 / 275 / 350 DmgColdSmall64.png Cold damage to an enemy if hit directly and freezes them in place for 5 / 7 / 12 / 15 seconds. Inflicts 50 / 100 / 125 / 150 DmgColdSmall64.png Cold damage with a 600% status chance to all enemies within a radius of 3 meters from the impact point.
    • All damage is affected by Ability Strength, body-part multipliers and TheoremDemulcent64x.png Theorem Demulcent.
      • DmgColdSmall64.png Cold combines residual elements. For example, ResidualViremia64x.png Residual Viremia forms DmgViralSmall64.png Viral.
      • Area damage affects the initial target, decreases with distance, and does not bypass obstacles in the environment.
    • Freeze duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Impact radius is not affected by Ability Range.
    • Status chance is not affected by mods.
    • Has a cast delay of ~0.6 seconds.
  • The freeze duration will end prematurely if the initial target loses 50% of its current health during the time it is frozen.
    • While frozen, enemies are unable to regenerate Shields.
  • Ability Synergy:
    • Casting Freeze onto the exterior of a SnowGlobe130xDark.png Snow Globe will destroy it, triggering an icy explosion that damages and ragdolls enemies in an area of effect.
  • Casting Avalanche130xDark.png Avalanche on a target frozen by Freeze will override Freeze's effects. The target will remain frozen for Avalanche's duration while temporarily reducing the target's armor and removing Freeze's health threshold.
  • Freeze is a one-handed action. As such, it can be used while performing various maneuvers and actions without interruption.
  • Can be recast on a frozen target multiple times, restarting the freeze timer.

Freeze Force is a Warframe Augment Mod for FrostIcon272.png Frost that allows Freeze130xDark.png Freeze to be held on cast, creating a wave of energy traveling outward from the user that temporarily grants the caster and nearby allies additional DmgColdSmall64.png Cold damage to all attacks.

3 100% 40s 15m 9

Tips & Tricks
  • Its primary strength is that a direct hit causes the target to be frozen in place for a fixed 10 seconds, regardless of rank. This is particularly useful when fighting single enemies such as bosses to buy time for teammates to revive incapacitated Tenno, recharge shields, reload, etc.
  • Targets that are frozen will be freed of their immobility if they take health damage by anything. Freeze's utility can be easily wasted unless proper coordination with teammates is exercised.
  • Freeze can be used to set up an effective kill-combo on an enemy with a burst-damage attack.
  • Arbitration Shield Drones won't dispel the freeze effect from frozen enemies.
  • Placing a DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash proc on enemies and then casting freeze can stop an enemy from killing you while slowly killing them via bleed damage.
