  • The amount of Energy gained from damage taken to health is affected by Warframe Armor.
  • Stacks with Mod TT 20px.png Rage for a total of 85% damage conversion.
  • Applies to Status Effects that deal damage over time and damage that bypasses shields.
  • Does not apply to the following sources of damage:


  • Hunter Adrenaline gains more mileage when equipped to Warframes with high Health such as AshIcon272.png Ash, InarosIcon272.png Inaros, MesaIcon272.png MesaSarynIcon272.png Saryn or NidusIcon272.png Nidus.
    • In particular, InarosIcon272.png Inaros and NidusIcon272.png Nidus benefit greatly from Hunter Adrenaline due to their lack of shields and significantly high health.
  • Hunter Adrenaline can be used alongside healing effects to create a renewable source of energy.
    • Examples of healing include Mod TT 20px.png Life Strike or Mod TT 20px.png Healing Return for melee weapons, Valkyr's Hysteria130xDark.png Hysteria ability, and the healing abilities of TrinityIcon272.png Trinity and OberonIcon272.png Oberon.
      • Note that Trinity already possesses a primary means of generating energy via EnergyVampire130xDark.png Energy Vampire.
    • Many Warframe ability Augments (such as Saryn's Mod TT 20px.png Regenerative Molt) create healing effects which can be employed in the same fashion.
    • Beware of high amounts of burst damage which may overwhelm a Warframe before they can heal themselves.
  • If the player has Mod TT 20px.png Quick Thinking equipped and suffers lethal damage, the gain in energy will be converted back over as emergency health.
  • When hunting for vaults in the Orokin Derelict, or even outside of the derelict, equipping the Decaying Dragon Key handicap to sacrifice shields will reduce the time needed before Hunter Adrenaline can take effect.
