WARFRAME Wiki

Mutation is endless. The ravening plague-bearer returns in a long-unseen form, seething with a primal strain of the Infestation. Features altered Mod polarities for greater customization.

We cast our shining child adrift on strange seas. For with time, these starless currents black as mourning may work a sea-change. And if, one grisly dawn, the skies should hurl you, herald-like, back to Earth, remind us, foundling, of what we immaculate ones have lost.

What succulent riches disease's kiss may bring.

My festering demigod. My Nidus.

Notes[]

  • Nidus Prime, compared to NidusNidusIcon272.png Nidus:
    • Higher Health (175/525 vs. 150/450)
    • Higher Energy (125/188 vs. 100/150)
    • Higher Armor (350/525 vs. 300/450)
    • Different Polarities (Madurai Pol.svgNaramon Pol.svgVazarin Pol.svg vs. Madurai Pol.svgVazarin Pol.svg)
  • As a Prime Warframe, Nidus Prime possesses a special passive ability where contact with an Orokin Void Death Orb will 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.
  • Nidus Prime's appearance changes as he accumulates Mutation Stacks:
    • At 3 stacks, black tendrils form on the left side of his face, as well as his entire left arm.
    • At 5 stacks, the tendrils extend to cover his chest and back.
    • At 7 stacks, the right side of his fleshy body becomes covered in a black mass, as the golden metallic spikes on his right arm protrude outward, while tendrils form on his lower body.
    • At 10 stacks, the tendrils extend to cover his entire face and thighs.
  • VirulenceVirulence130xDark.png Virulence, LarvaLarva130xDark.png Larva, RavenousRavenous130xDark.png Ravenous' Maggots and its Infested nests have unique models of Orokin design, appearing twisted and overtaken by Nidus' Infestation.
