This egg is used to transplant the genetic code of a Kubrow onto a Kubrow clone.
—In-Game Description

Kubrow Eggs can be incubated to hatch into either a natural Kubrow of a random species or according to two Genetic Imprints of the same species used in breeding. Kubrow Eggs are rare and can only be obtained by destroying Kubrow Dens in the Grineer Forest tileset, which is only located on Earth. Alternatively, it can be bought for Platinum64 10 in the Market.

Obtaining an Egg[]


Kubrow Eggs have the same visual effect as rare mods do.

Upon breaking a Kubrow Den, there is a small chance that a Kubrow Egg will drop. Usually, upon breaking a den, you will automatically pick up the egg. There are multiple dens, usually on the lower ground levels. Dens resemble the base of a tree, with a root system and a hole from which Kubrows emerge. If you fire into or strike the den additional Kubrows emerge. Kubrow Eggs use the same visual effects that rare mods and 5,000-standing Syndicate Medallions use, namely a column of light.

As of Update 23.10 (2018-10-12), the pickup limit on eggs has been lifted, allowing more than one egg to be stored.

Eggs cannot be traded between players.

  • Running the Capture mission on Mantle, Earth is a good way to farm Kubrow eggs. Using a fast moving Warframe (VoltIcon272 Volt, LokiIcon272 Loki, NovaIcon272 Nova), simply run around the map destroying dens (on average there are 2-4 Dens in a mission) until there are none, then capture the target and extract. Alternatively you can abort the mission if no eggs are found. Running solo is considered faster and an egg can usually be picked up in around 4-5 runs. This method normally takes around 30 minutes or less before getting an egg. Also, being a beginners mission, one doesn't have to worry about high level enemies.
