Command the ocean's fury with this king of gold and silver. Featuring altered mod polarities for greater customization.

Fear... is the greatest of faith. While our immortal vines have left us distant from our baser selves, consider our subjects:

Those who gaze upon our cloud-swept towers, with simmering, violent envy, they hold still the old fears.

Depth and darkness... The windless embrace...

We will give to fear a form and yet none a vague hydra, a load monstrosity, surging from the unfathomable... reminding them who their gods are. Hydroid.

Release Date: August 29th, 2017

NotesEdit

  • Hydroid Prime, compared to HydroidIcon272 Hydroid:
    • Higher Shields (175/525 vs. 125/375)
    • Higher Armor (275 vs. 225)
    • Higher Energy (150/225 vs. 125/188)
    • Different Polarities (Madurai PolVazarin PolNaramon PolNaramon Pol vs. Madurai PolNaramon Pol)
    • Higher Mastery Rank required (5 vs. 0)
  • As a Prime Warframe, Hydroid Prime possesses a special passive ability where contact with an Orokin Void Death Orb will make them release an energy pulse that grants 250 Energy to all nearby allies. This effect can only occur once per Death Orb, and can occur even if the Death Orb has been previously destroyed.
  • Hydroid Prime's TentacleSwarm130xDark Tentacle Swarm, Undertow130xDark Undertow and passive ability-spawned tentacles are no longer translucent. Instead, tentacles are opaque and and have a new organic texture that is affected by Hydroid Prime's Warframe Appearance colors.
    • Energy color applies a coat of energy on the tentacle's model and alters the color of the numerous glow spots on the texture. This allows players to customize their tentacles to look similar to the older tentacle model prior to Update 21.4.
    • Tentacle texture can return to default non-Prime translucency by equipping different skins (e.g. Hydroid Immortal Skin on Hydroid Prime)

TriviaEdit

  • Hydroid Prime, along with Frost PrimeIcon272 Frost Prime, can achieve the third highest total shield value out of all Warframes at 3,195 by combining Mod TT 20pxRedirectionMod TT 20pxPrimed VigorMod TT 20pxAugur Accord, and their maximum Overshields (+1200). HarrowIcon272 Harrow currently holds the second highest possible shield value of 4,110, beaten only by Hildryn's 6555. These numbers can potentially be higher with other buffs that increase shield capacity (such as Mod TT 20pxShield Charger and Sequence).
  • Hydroid Prime was revealed at TennoCon 2017 alongside Excalibur UmbraIcon272 Excalibur Umbra and Plains of Eidolon.
  • His Prime trailer was revealed at TennoCon 2020.
  • A fully built Hydroid Prime was given for watching TennoCon 2020 on WARFRAME's Twitch with a Twitch-linked account for 30 consecutive minutes, after 5:00 p.m. ET, on August 1st, 2020. It comes with a free Warframe slot and pre-installed Orokin Reactor.
    • Due to thousands of players reporting missing Twitch drops, on August 6th, 2020 Hydroid Prime was distributed to all players if they were logged in to WARFRAME during TennoCon 2020, regardless if they watched the streams or not.[1]
