NotesEdit

  • Hydroid Prime, compared to Hydroid:
    • Higher Shields (175/525 vs. 125/375)
    • Higher Armor (250 vs. 200)
    • 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.

TriviaEdit

  • Hydroid Prime, along with Frost Prime, can achieve the second highest total shield value out of all Warframes at 3,195 by combining RedirectionPrimed VigorAugur Accord, and their maximum Overshields (+1200). Harrow currently holds the first highest possible shield value of 4,110. These numbers can potentially be higher with other buffs that increase shield capacity (such as Shield Charger and Sequence).
  • Hydroid Prime's Tentacle Swarm, Undertow and passive ability-spawned tentacles are no longer translucent. Instead, tentacles become opaque and have a new 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.
  • Hydroid Prime was revealed at TennoCon 2017 alongside Excalibur Umbra on Global version and Plains of Eidolon.
