Take down your enemies with magnetic force. Mag alters magnetic fields to provide crowd control and strip enemy defenses. Few can resist her attraction or her repulsion.

This is Mag, a force to be reckoned with.

Mag is a team player, Tenno, and a worthy addition to any squad.

Release Date: October 25th, 2012

Mag is a Warframe based on magnetic force. She boasts high shield strength in exchange for reduced health, and her abilities make her a potent medium for crowd control and manipulation. She is one of three starter options for new players.

Acquisition

Mag is one of the three starter Warframes, alongside ExcaliburIcon272 Excalibur and VoltIcon272 Volt, during Awakening.

Mag's main blueprint can be purchased from the Market. Mag's component blueprints can be obtained from defeating The Sergeant on Iliad, Phobos.

Trivia

  • Mag's given name is inspired from a shortened form of magnetism, used in a feminine fashion (see: Magdalene). Other possible inspirations include the concept of magnitude, a tribute to her affinity for dealing "in extremes".
  • Mag replaced VoltIcon272 Volt as an initial choice of Warframe in Update 7.0 (2013-03-18), though Volt would later replace LokiIcon272 Loki as a starter Warframe choice in Update 14.0 (2014-07-18).
  • The energy of Mag's helmet can be colored with the Warframe's energy colors, instead of the emissive colors.
  • Mag is the first female Warframe to possess a Prime variant.
  • Both of Mag's alternate helmets are named after the Gauss projectile accelerator consisting of one or more coils used as linear electromagnets to accelerate a magnetic or conducting projectile to high velocity. Weapons using said mechanic are commonly referred to as either Gauss guns or Coilguns.
    • GaussIcon272 Gauss, another Warframe inspired by the creator of the mechanism mentioned above, has an alternate helmet (Gauss Mag Helmet) which is deliberately a reversal of one of Mag's alternate helmets, the Mag Gauss Helmet.
  • A Mag is briefly shown in Livestream 17 along with Alad V.

Warframe Archive - Debrief excerpt

We sat strapped in, safeties off, waiting for the punch. Waiting for death. Through my filthy porthole I saw stars among the outlines of the other Splinter ships queuing for the Solar Rail. It would soon grip us with an incomprehensible power and cast us through the void into the mouth of our enemy.

I watched the ships one-by-one bending and gone. Each crammed with zero-tech soldiers sucking stale air, white knuckling their percussion rifles. Each filled with a desperation that comes from extinction. Our ship would be the last to cross the gap. Our ship had special cargo.

It was essentially empty. Just ten men, like me, strapped in with the best zero-tech suits and weapons the empire could build... and "it". "It" stood in the aisle, a slender and eyeless metal form. A Tenno inside its Warframe. Vaguely human, vaguely feminine. Was this armor or some ornate carapace for the monster that lived inside? I strained against the harness as the ship yawed for final approach. I could see the Tenno standing there freely. Solemn and gold-gleaming, oblivious to the inertial force.

I had been, until then, a Tenno denier. They were ghosts, propaganda, twisted casualties of the void era. Not possibly real. Yet here it was in the flesh. The Empire, in their desperation, was going to turn the demons loose and hope for the best. Who did we fear more, the enemy or this monster? We had our safeties off, could we trust it? Then it didn't matter anymore. The punch came - and our windows became blinding. When we could see again our ship was somewhere else, shattered and dead in an instant.

My lungs were flattened, eyes full of death. Ship debris glittered like a night snow. The alien blue star was dark and blinding beyond us. The countless articulating worm-ships of our enemy, ringed in glowing discs, undulating and heat-bursting the surviving soldiers like me. This is where I died. I was in R-disc, sweeping over my right and setting my blood on fire. My vision flattened, the hearing muffled and buzzed. I could feel the side of my face going slack and wet.

I was in a dying dream. I saw a bright spot blurring and weaving toward me. I felt a tug toward it from the metal clasps on my suit. It reached me, rising up - a gleaming beast, a plume of golden wings rising and unfolding behind it. An angel. It snatched me from my death. I could feel my lungs fill as it wrapped me in its wings. Its Void Shield shimmered blue, strained under the enemy beams. I felt a suddenly tug of acceleration. I closed my eyes and held on it like a child.

I awoke on the floor, the sting of crisping flesh on my face and side. It was standing over me, the wings gone. I heard the cracking of weapons echoing down the corridor. Maybe the mission would be saved, but I was dying and so I waved my hand to send it away. I felt a pistol thrust in my hand as I was heaved to my feet. The angel had saved me, pulled me from hell, but it would not pity me. I was to die on my feet, by its side. I turned my good side toward the gunfire and raised the gun. It nodded, its outstretched metal hand surging and pulsing in ancient shapes as blue shimmered around me. It turned, drawing its blade and together we surged headlong into the hailstorm of death and fire that awaited us.
The exquisite Mag Prime offers the same abilities as Mag but with unique mod polarities for greater customization.

Notes

  • Mag Prime, compared to MagIcon272 Mag:
    • Higher Health (270/370 vs. 180/280)
    • Higher Armor (135 vs. 105)
    • Higher Energy (215/265 vs. 140/190)
    • Higher Starting Energy (100 vs. 75)
    • Additional Madurai Pol Polarity (Naramon PolNaramon PolMadurai Pol vs. Naramon PolNaramon Pol)
  • As with any other Prime Warframe, moving close to the location of an Orokin Void Death Orb will restore a pulse of 250 Energy to nearby allies, even if that Death Orb is inactive, destroyed, or non-present. This effect can only occur once per orb.

Trivia

  • Mag Prime was added in Update 10.0 (2013-09-13) along with the BoarPrime Boar Prime and DakraPrime Dakra Prime weapons. She was the third prime Warframe added to the game and is also the first female prime Warframe to be added.
  • Mag Prime is one of the first Warframes (with the other being NekrosIcon272 Nekros) to require three Orokin Cells to craft.
  • Prior to Update 10.3 (2013-10-09), Mag Prime's secondary color could tint the gold accents on her body.
  • The floating gold plates by Mag Prime's shoulders are considered customization Armor parts, and will be removed if any other arm plates are used.
  • The "wings" mentioned in Mag Prime's Codex entry foreshadowed the Archwing, a feature added in Update 15.0 (2014-10-24). This was mentioned in Devstream 36, which showcased Archwing gameplay.
  • Mag Prime's Crush130xWhite Crush features golden debris being lifted off the ground, unlike the standard version.

Passive

MagIcon272 Mag automatically Mod TT 20px Vacuums Pickups that are within 8 meters towards her.

  • The passive does not stack with mods like Mod TT 20px Vacuum or Mod TT 20px Fetch, making it useless if these mods are used, since they override her passive due to providing more range.

Patch History

Hotfix 36.0.4 (2024-06-26)

  • Fixes towards Mag’s “Greedy Pull” not collecting pickups (ex: Endo).
    • Seeing as we cannot fix this without Code, we have temporarily reverted the Augment’s LoS check from render (which was introduced in Hotfix 35.5.6) back to raycast. This may result in issues of loot not being Pulled due to slight variances in elevation, but it fixes the issues of pickups being ignored by the Augment. We will return the LoS check back to render in the next Cert update.

Hotfix 36.0.1 (2024-06-19)

  • Fixed offset issues with the Corachrix Shoulder Armor when equipped on Mag.

Update 36.0 (2024-06-18)

  • Fixed Mag’s Magnetize Ability not taking effect when casted onto a target ragdolled by her Pull Ability.
  • Fixed Mag’s Magnetize Ability causing ragdolled enemies to float, jitter around or fly away.
  • Fixed Mag’s Magnetize sometimes not working when cast on ragdolled enemies.
  • Fixed Mag’s Pneuma Skin right fingers have misaligned details compared to the left hand.

Hotfix 35.5.7 (2024-04-17)

Line of Sight (LoS) Changes & Fixes

As mentioned in our last Hotfix 35.5.6, the team continues to address and assess player reports of further LoS issues. While the quality and consistency of LoS checks has improved significantly, we're still not 100% satisfied and sometimes the results are still unpredictable. The team is investigating LoS checks at large occasionally having odd interactions with terrain, enemies, etc. which is causing inconsistencies in the checks. We are looking to have this resolved in the next Cert update (more info on what that means here).

For today, we have made LoS improvements to the following Warframe abilities:

  • Fixed Mag’s Pull ability pulling enemies from all directions instead of in a cone directly in front of her as intended.
    • This was accidentally introduced with Hotfix 35.5.6 as part of our efforts to improve LoS check consistency with Pull. The established behavior for many years has been that Pull only works in the direction you are looking, so we’ve returned it to that intended state but with the new and improved LoS check logic.
  • Fixed the following Warframe abilities not ignoring terrain for enemies that are up to 5 meters from the ability starting point:
    • Mag’s Magnetize explosion (specifically on HOLD cast)

Hotfix 35.5.6 (2024-04-10)

Line Of Sight (Los) Improvements

As announced last week, we have revisited LoS checks on other Warframes to bring them in line with the new and improved version of Dante’s LoS added in Hotfix 35.5.4.

To reiterate, there are now two variations of LoS checking:

  1. The first type of check sees if any part of the enemy has been drawn on the screen, so that any part of an enemy, big or small, is considered visible/eligible to pass the LoS check.
  2. The second type of check is for enemies that are not on screen. We now check for LoS to the enemy's head, torso, and feet instead of only to their body which will increase reliability there as well.

For Abilities that hit enemies in a full circle around you, both checks are used: Once to evaluate enemies that you can see and then a second sweep to check targets to the sides and behind you that aren't visible.

The following Warframe abilities have received the aforementioned improvements:

  • Mag’s Pull (Rendered Check)

The above changes also tangentially fixes the issue of low FOV preventing LoS checks from occurring (this was most reported for Mag’s Pull).

Hotfix 35.5.2 (2024-03-28)

  • Fixed an issue with Onos’ projectiles which prevented them from being absorbed into Mag’s Magnetize bubble and causing them to literally bounce off of it into the stratosphere.

Update 34.0 (2023-10-18)

Base vs Final Stats in Modding - Health / Energy / Shield / Armor Stat Overhaul

If you’ve spent any time invested in the deeper nuances of Modding, you may be familiar with “Warframe Math” - math that upon first glance doesn’t really make sense, but once you learn the inner workings of the game, it all comes together. While we can appreciate the value that complex systems offer to a certain subsect of players, there are other aspects of the game that should have clear and understandable outcomes. Namely: Shield, Health, Energy, and Armor Modding.

Pop quiz: what is 300 + 440%? If you answered 740, you may just be an Excalibur player.

Vitality (+440% Heath), Redirection (+440% Shields), Flow (+150% Energy), and Steel Fiber (+110% Armor) come with large modifier values that don’t seem to match their outcome in-game. This is because these Mods apply their multiplier to the base stats of the Warframe - i.e., the stats you have at Rank 0. In the Excalibur example, a Rank 30 Excalibur’s Health stat of 300 earns an additional 440 Health from max rank Vitality (+440% Heath) since it applies to his base rank Health stat of 100, resulting in 740 total health.

In this update, we have removed this obfuscation by having Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor Mods apply to the stats of Warframes at their current rank. Continuing our Excalibur example, instead of Vitality always applying to Excalibur’s base rank 100 Health, it would apply to his Health stat based on his rank - namely, the stat you can actually see in your Arsenal. If your Excalibur were Rank 30, his Health stat would be 300, which means Vitality’s multiplier would be calculated off of 300.

With previous Health and Mod values, additional adjustments are needed to make this revision work while maintaining game balance. By only changing where the multiplier applies, a Rank 30 Excalibur would receive an extra 1,320 Health from max rank Vitality, resulting in a total health stat of 1,600. This outcome is a significant buff, which is not the intention of this system change.

To remedy this, we approached this problem in two ways:

1 - We reduced the overall multiplier for Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor Mods.
Since these now affect Max Rank Warframe stats, these Mods need to scale differently to maintain the status quo. Additionally, we wanted these new values to be as clear and understandable to all players as possible! Here are a few examples of these value changes:

  • Vitality: Reduced from +440% to +100% Health
  • Redirection: Reduced from +440% to +100% Shield Capacity
  • Steel Fiber: Reduced from +110% to +100% Armor
  • Flow: Reduced from +150% to +100% Energy Max

Note: These are not all of the Mods affected by this change. We share the comprehensive list further down in this section of the update notes.

Doing some quick math, this means that a Rank 30 Excalibur (300 Health) with a reworked Vitality Mod (+100% Health, applied to the final Health stat) would receive 300 extra Health, for a total of 600. That, in contrast, is a nerf, which we also don’t want to do.

So, our next step:

2 - We adjusted Warframe Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor values to keep the end result of the revised Mods as close to the original values as possible.

With this change, Excalibur’s Rank 30 Health stat is 370. With +100% Health from a max Vitality Mod, his resulting Health stat would be 740, which matches what it was originally.

While this path to the same result may seem a little complicated, the outcome matches our intention: we want players to be able to look at their Health, Shield, and Armor Mods, and be able to understand how they affect the stats they see in their Arsenal.

In addition to everything above, we also increased the base stat values for Warframes so that these revised Mods offer similar value for lower-ranked Frames. To do so, we reduced the amount of Health/Shield/Energy that Warframes earn per rank in half, and transferred the sum of that value to their base stats.

For Armor, this is the one stat that does not increase with your Warframe’s level (with some exceptions). Armor values across the board have been slightly increased to compensate for the Mod changes.

Not to beat a dead Kaithe, but Mods will now be applying to the Max Rank stat instead of the Base Rank. You may look at these numbers and think “nerf” or “buff” depending, but the outcome is that total Modded values are the same, if not a little higher in some cases.

Warframe Stat Changes:

MAG
Health: Base Rank - 180 (from 75) / Max Rank - 280 (from 225)
Shields: Base Rank - 455 (from 150) / Max Rank - 555 (from 450)
Armor: Base Rank - 105 (from 100)
Energy: Base Rank - 140 (from 125) / Max Rank - 190 (from 188)

MAG PRIME Health: Base Rank - 270 (from 100) / Max Rank - 370 (from 300) Shields: Base Rank - 455 (from 150) / Max Rank - 555 (from 450) Armor: Base Rank - 135 (from 125) Energy: Base Rank - 215 (from 175) / Max Rank - 265 (from 263)

While there may be significant changes to Warframe Stats and Mod values as a part of this overhaul, the end result is that your Builds should mostly stay the same. The key difference is the added clarity of what your Health / Shield / Energy / Armor Mods do in your Upgrade screens!

Update 33.5 (2023-06-21)

  • Fixed extremely bright VFX covering the majority of screen when combining Mag’s protective Magnetize (hold to cast) with the Catena Prime Ephemera.

Update 33.0 (2023-04-26)

  • Fixed Mag’s Shrapnel constantly orbiting you regardless of distance, as opposed to being extracted from enemies and laying dormant on the ground until Mag is in range.

Update 32.2 (2022-11-30)

  • Fixed extreme screen shake when using the Nataruk’s charged shot and Mag’s Magnetize together.

Update 32.1 (2022-11-02)

  • Fixed enemies instantly dying when casting Mag’s Pull on enemies that are affected by Titania’s Spellbind.

Hotfix 32.0.12 (2022-10-12)

Hotfix 32.0.9 (2022-10-05)

  • Fixed damage types from equipped weapons applying to Mag’s Shards while she is standing in a zone created by Residual Arcanes.
    • The Arcane effects apply only to weapons, her Shards will only apply Slash damage as intended while in these zones.
  • Fixed script error related to Mag’s Crush.

Hotfix 32.0.7 (2022-09-28)

  • Fixed Chroma’s ‘Cold’ Elemental Ward applying a large damage multiplier bonus to bullets that hit an absorb/redirect volume (Mag’s Magnetize).
    • Elemental Ward should only add bonus damage to bullets that hit the player and then get reflected at enemies. Absorb spheres are not intended to gain any special benefit from this.

Hotfix 32.0.2 (2022-09-08)

  • Fixed Mag’s Passive vacuum radius being smaller than it originally was before Update 32. It has been restored to its former glory.
    • Also fixed Mag Prime’s Passive description not being updated to its new form.

Update 32.0 (2022-09-07)

STARTER WARFRAME ABILITY CHANGES: MAG

The classic trio has been revisited for a bit of a facelift! Our goals were to make all abilities relevant, while simplifying some mechanics for new players to better understand. The changes are as follows:

MAG

Passive:

  • No longer requires you to Bullet Jump to pull pickups towards her.

Pull

  • Now creates a mini-vortex when casting, which gathers enemies in front of Mag. Polarize Shards on the ground will also be Pulled into this Vortex.
    • Helminth: Changed Mag’s Pull to now have diminished range when infused. Was 25m at max, now 12.5m.

Magnetize

  • Shards from Polarize are pulled into the Magnetize Bubble, including Shards orbiting Mag.
  • Charged Magnetize absorb shards increase its damage by 500 for each one. Scales with Ability Strength mods.
  • Increased the angle of Protective cast from 80 to 120 degrees across all ranks.
  • Unified Range value across all ranks (15m for Explosion Radius, 4m for Bubble Radius).
  • Unified Protective cast Absorption Multiplier across all ranks to 2x.
  • Added an FX when the Shards projectile expires.
  • Fixed the burst FX being incorrectly rotated.

Polarize

  • Shards are now significantly larger and hover above the ground, making them much easier to see.
  • Shards within 3m of Mag now orbit her, inflicting the Slash or Puncture Status Effect to nearby enemies.
  • Unified Range and Duration across all ranks to 8m and 5s respectively.

Crush

  • Unified range across all ranks to 18m.

  • Was: Survivors have their armor decreased by 50% and become unable to move for 7 seconds.
  • Now: Augment functions unchanged, casting speed is increased by 50%.
FIXES:
  • Fixed Mag’s Polarize inconsistently removing enemy armor if it affected a group of enemies versus a single unit.

Hotfix 29.6.4 (2021-01-06)

  • ‘Invert Tap/Hold Abilities’ option now lets you control the setting for each valid Warframe.
  • Numerous Warframes Abilities new and old have been given the ‘Tap/Hold’ functionality to do varying actions. Feedback showed that having the option to Invert the ‘Tap/Hold’ across the board to all valid Warframes was not ideal, as some Ability default functionalities are preferred. Upon selecting the ‘Invert Tap/Hold Abilities’ in the Options menu, you'll be met with a new screen allowing you to pick and choose which valid Warframes this applies to!

Update 29.6 (2020-12-18)

  • Fixed Arch-Gun becoming invisible and being unable to reload it when summoned as Mag and casting her "Absorb" form of Magnetize.

Hotfix 29.0.8 (2020-09-10)

  • Fixed certain Warframe abilities (Mag's Magnetize) that create reflecting bullets counting towards hits that increase the Hata-Satya Critical Chance buff. Only hits performed by Soma Prime should increase the Hata-Satya Critical Chance buff.

Hotfix 29.0.7 (2020-09-03)

  • Fixed enemies able to apply hostile Status Effects through Mag’s “held” variant of Magnetize despite the projectiles never actually reaching you.

  • Fixed a script error when casting Mag’s Magnetize ability.

Update 29.0 (2020-08-25)

  • Mag’s Magnetize now has an added functionality as seen in the “Awakening” cinematic.

Recast the ability to throw the absorbed damage in a cone back onto enemies. Mag can also walk while holding the bubble.

Hotfix 28.1.1 (2020-07-09)

Hotfix 28.0.6 (2020-06-24)

  • Fixed Mag's "Magnetize" ability displaying the chosen Energy primary/secondary colors differently depending on what rank Magnetize is.

  • Slightly reduced Mag’s Magnetize ‘Magnetic Pull’ strength to be more balanced with max level Strength Mods.

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

  • Armor Change:
    • Mag: 65 to 100
    • Mag Prime: 65 to 125
    • Why: The conversation surrounding Arcane Guardian led to a significant review of Armor stats on Warfarmes. The Majority of Warframes received an increase in the Armor stat to increase survivability. Compounded with Shield Gating and the numerous other changes covered, we expect a much more fair feeling playing field for all Warframes.
  • Fixed the Itzal Chest Plate being angled slightly to the left on Mag Prime.
Mag Magnetize Change

You’ll notice a new Arsenal stat for Mag’s Magnetize ability called ‘Magnetic Pull’. This value now represents Mag’s force of gravity that pulls targets towards a central enemy.’ Magnetic Pull’ is scaled with Magnetize’s Rank and can be Modded with Ability Strength Mods.

‘Magnetic Pull’ stat has been added to address enemies that are only affected by the pull for brief moments or those that ignore it completely, as opposed to getting pulled towards the central target. As reported here: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1131437-magnetize-not-pulling-in-all-enemies/

Mag Changes

  • Pull: Pull remains mostly the same as before. If an enemy is magnetized, bonus damage is dealt. Kills have a bonus chance of dropping energy, while causing enemies to experience almost physics-defying deaths.
  • Magnetize: Magnetize (previously Bullet Attractor) will root the target in place. Damage over time is dealt to all enemies within a set radius, with the amount of damage based on how far from the center of the Magnetized they are.

Targets with shields will take a fixed shield damage (no longer a %), while targets with armour take health damage and a permanent armour debuff.
