LoreEdit

Fair, but the Myconians aren't asking for charity. Their ancestral understanding of the Infestation comes from an Old War relic. A relic that I know, will be of extreme interest to you. Return the Triuna, and the relic will be yours. Fair compensation for the risk.

—Ergo Glast on Nidus during The Glast Gambit

Little is known about the history of the Nidus Warframe. However, the Myconian's relationship with the Infestation reveals that the Infested strain that created Nidus has helped them understand how to become immune to it, allowing them to harvest Infested flesh as part of their livelihood.

Nidus has a mysterious connection with the Helminth being that resides in the Orbiter, being the only Warframe that can purposely be infected by the Helminth Virus; the extent of this relationship is currently unknown.

NotesEdit

Nidus with 100 stacks

  • As Nidus has no shields, any Hijack objective will drain his health instead in order to move.
  • However, there are benefits with Nidus's lack of shields, such as:
    • The Decaying Dragon Key having no negative effect, allowing Nidus to carry it without issue.
    • The No Shields Nightmare Mode condition has no effect.
    • Cryogenic Leakage has no effect on his nonexistent shields. His friction is still affected however.
    • Magnetic b Magnetic has no effect on his nonexistent shields. Energy drain and HUD disruption still occur, however.
    • Mod TT 20pxRage and Mod TT 20pxHunter Adrenaline always giving energy when damage is taken.
  • Nidus has the unique passive ability to infect other players both in combat and in a Clan Dojo with the "Helminth Virus" acquired from the Infested Room onboard the Orbiter. Nidus is the only Warframe that can be used to open the Infested Room without having a fully mature cyst.

TriviaEdit

  • Nidus is the first Warframe to use Kuva as a Blueprint ingredient.
  • Nidus is the second Warframe after InarosIcon272 Inaros to have no base shields whatsoever.
  • Nidus is also the first Warframe to use another type of ability resource besides energy, in the form of Mutation stacks.
  • Nidus is the first and only Warframe to innately regenerate Health.
  • Nidus is the first frame to have extra stat bonuses when leveling up.
