Never stop moving. Gauss' battery is charged by movement, powering his devastating kinetic abilities. They can't kill what they can't hit.

Charging his abilities with every step, he's streamlined for speed. This is Gauss, the runner, the rapid.

If the battle seems out of control, Tenno, you're not going fast enough.

Gauss. Front edge: smooth heat-resistant composites. Trailing edges: streamlined, foiled, this particular one vaguely warped by extreme heat stress.

The Saint of Altra. If the mind wanders, what do you see?

I see a vivid Lord-like Festival, the tremor mines bursting in a blinding wave, rising toward Altra. And Gauss - a smear of light, just ahead of the thermal avalanche - fast as fire. No... faster.

Release Date: August 29th, 2019

Engines ready for ignition. Coolant circulation systems online. Revved into kinetic overdrive, the speedster Gauss leaves his competition amidst the dust. Accelerate and race across vast landscapes or seas. Recharge power from hostile strikes and reduce the force of their impact. Flash-freeze enemies dead in their tracks, then spontaneously combust his foes, as he paves the path to a swift victory. Gauss kickstarted in Update 25.7: Saint of Altra.

Acquisition

Gauss components drop from Tier C Disruption on Kelpie, Sedna. Each component has a 10% drop chance.
Drop Chance Expected Nearly Guaranteed
Chassis Blueprint 10% 18 – 19 Tier C Rewards 76 ± 21 Tier C Rewards
Neuroptics Blueprint 10%
Systems Blueprint 10%

Expected refers to total number of runs a player can expect to receive at least one of each drop associated with the respective values.

Nearly Guaranteed refers to the total number of runs a player needs to obtain a 99%, 99.9%, and 99.99% probability to receive at least one of each drop associated with the respective values.

LoreEdit

Ah, Gauss. Where to begin, where to begin... Well, the Ceres excavation of course. The site of the ancient tower of Altra.

Blastcrete emplacements, air sentries... its fields saturated with tremor mines. A great fortress for the Great Lords of Ceres... until they were pitched from the roof, immortal bodies erupting on the dread mines below.

An insurgency, from within. The Dax sent to reclaim Altra fared no better. Those that ran the gauntlet of bore-guns were soon cindered in the field beyond... That's when they called in our fleet-footed friend here.

Altra was an ancient tower fortress on Ceres owned by the Orokin. An insurgency occurred there and the Orokin demanded its recapture. However, the tower's defenses proved to be impenetrable to the Dax batallion.

Gauss was then called in to quell the insurgency. With his immense speed, he blitzed through the tower and was able to reclaim it. His victory earned him the title: the Saint of Altra.

Drusus, the Leverian's host, later found Gauss and his equipment in an excavation of the area.

NotesEdit

TriviaEdit

  • Gauss is named after Carl Friedrich Gauss, the German mathematician and physicist who made significant contributions to many fields in mathematics and sciences. Most notably in Electromagnetism, Differential Geometry, Algebra, and Statistics.
  • The term Redline is an automotive term that refers to the maximum revolutions-per-minute (RPM) that an engine is designed to withstand without damaging its own components. It can also be used as a verb to refer to running an engine at or beyond its maximum safe RPM (e.g. "to redline").
  • The name of the Gauss Mag Helmet, his alternate helmet, is a deliberate reversal of one of MagIcon272 Mag's alternate helmets, the Mag Gauss Helmet.
  • Gauss is the 41st Warframe to be released (excluding Primed and Umbra variants).
  • Unlike several other Warframes that require exclusive resources from only one of the Landscapes, Gauss' Chassis and Systems require resources from Plains of Eidolon and Orb Vallis, respectively.
  • Gauss is the first Warframe whose component blueprints are acquired from Disruption.
  • Gauss was planned to be released alongside Grendel, who is said to be his best friend, but DE made the decision to release Grendel later. As a nod to this, Grendel can be seen in Gauss' profile video, riding a K-Drive while Gauss sprints beside him.
  • Gauss is the first Warframe to be featured in the Leverian.
    • The Leverian displays Gauss' airfoil system as a separate part.
  • Gauss is the fourth Warframe to use another type of ability resource besides energy, after NidusIcon272 Nidus, BaruukIcon272 Baruuk, and HildrynIcon272 Hildryn. In Gauss's case, he uses his Electrokinetic Battery.
    • Unlike other Warframes, all of Gauss' abilities still require energy to activate.
  • In Gauss' profile video, Lotus pronounces his name as "goss" (to rhyme with "moss"), as opposed to the usual pronunciation of "gouse" (to rhyme with "house"). Unlike TitaniaIcon272 Titania this pronunciation choice is inconsistent as Drusus uses the latter option.
