Death's new master. Featuring altered mod polarities allow for greater customization.

"Fear is a weed, snaking in the dark. It vines within the mind, corrupting it. It germinates within tribes, dividing them. Your graces, we who are beyond death, have forgotten the simple power of fear. Let us now remember. You will find no greater power than the simple thought of your own name, inscribed upon a grave.

Our harbinger, our terror ... Nekros."

Notes

  • Nekros Prime, compared to NekrosIcon272.png Nekros:
    • Higher Shields (150/450 vs. 90/270)
    • Higher Armor (125 vs. 100)
    • Higher Energy (125/188 vs. 100/150)
    • Different Polarities (Madurai Pol.svgVazarin Pol.svgNaramon Pol.svg vs. Madurai Pol.svgVazarin Pol.svg)
  • As a Prime Warframe, Nekros 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.
  • Nekros is the warframe with the highest Polymer Bundle requirement, where he needs 12,000 to build the neuroptics.

Trivia

  • Nekros Prime is the third prime Warframe introduced via a cinematic lore video, continuing a trend that started with Saryn PrimeIcon272.png Saryn Prime.
  • Nekros Prime was revealed at TennoCon 2016.
  • The shadows Nekros Prime raises will appear more grotesque, like a rotting corpse, as opposed to the normal ethereal like shadows.
  • During Tennocon 2019, a free Nekros Prime was given to anyone who watched the second livestream for 30 consecutive minutes
