Trivia[]

  • Nova Prime is the second prime Warframe after Nyx PrimeIcon272.png Nyx Prime to have two enhanced stats, in this case, increased Shields and Energy over her normal version.
    • She is also the second prime Warframe with a boost to shields, the first being Frost PrimeIcon272.png Frost Prime.
  • Nova Prime marks the first time that an Open Beta Warframe – NovaIcon272.png Nova – has received a prime variant. The previous seven prime Warframes (ExcaliburIcon272.png Excalibur, FrostIcon272.png Frost, MagIcon272.png Mag, EmberIcon272.png Ember, RhinoIcon272.png Rhino, LokiIcon272.png Loki, NyxIcon272.png Nyx) are based on designs from the Closed Beta period.
  • Unlike previous prime Warframes, Nova Prime's gold parts can be recolored, which was made possible with the new Physical Based Rendering (PBR) techniques utilized in updates of the graphics engine first introduced at the time of her release. The PrimeSoma.png Soma Prime, PrimeVasto.png Vasto Prime and the Pyra Syandana Prime that came with Update 15.7 (2014-12-17) share the same feature.
  • Nova Prime's long ring neck design resembles the neck rings from the Kayan Tribe in Burma.
  • Nova Prime is the second prime Warframe to have a non-static model, the first being Rhino PrimeIcon272.png Rhino Prime, as her helmet and back have casings that open with advanced movement and activation of abilities, causing her energy coils to glow more intensely.

Bugs[]

  • Her moving parts will often become reversed, staying open even when the player is standing still with no powers currently active, and zooming in with a weapon will close them, with them re-opening when exiting zoom. The only way to fix this issue (although it will continue to happen) is to use a power.
