  • Though Mesa is not a quest-driven Warframe, completion of Patient Zero quest is a prerequisite in order to obtain her component blueprints.


  • After OberonIcon272.png Oberon, Mesa is the second Warframe whose main blueprint sells for Credits64.png 30,000.
  • The line in Lotus' summary, "Do you feel lucky, Tenno?" is a direct reference to one of Dirty Harry's most popular quotes
  • Mesa was first revealed in Devstream 41, when Art Director Mike "Mynki" Brennan displayed her concept art.
    • According to Brennan her default helmet is actually blindfolded, as she enjoys a challenge during fights.
  • With her gunslinger theme, Mesa's name is most likely a reference to the land formation of the same name which is common in the Western and Southwestern United States.
    • The word mesa is the Portuguese and Spanish word for "table"; the mesa land formation is an elevated area of land with a flat top.
  • Mesa is the second Warframe to come with built-in exalted weapons, following ValkyrIcon272.png Valkyr.
    • ExcaliburIcon272.png Excalibur's ExaltedBlade130xDark.png Exalted Blade was added after Mesa was introduced, despite being a Warframe that came before both Mesa and Valkyr.
    • The firing hammers for Mesa's Regulator pistols are mounted on her thumbs.
    • Mesa's Regulator pistols are colored separately in their exalted weapon menu rather than the main Warframe color selection.
  • Some related files refer to Mesa as "Cowgirl", which was most likely her name used during development.
  • The name of Mesa's 4th ability, Peacemaker, is probably derived from the Colt Single Action Army revolver, which was also called the Colt Peacemaker. Keeping with Mesa's Western theme, the revolver saw considerable use in the American Old West.
    • Additionally, the name of Mesa's Regulator Pistols might be a reference to the Regulators, a posse from the American Old West said to have been co-founded by Billy The Kid.
  • The style of movement during Peacemaker is inspired by the Gun Kata from the movie Equilibrium. The dual gun poses and near-instant transitions from one pose to another are almost the same as that movie.
