Psychic attacks make Nyx a dangerous foe. She reaches into enemy consciousness to provide crowd control and turn their attacks back on them. Such manipulation can turn the tide of battle.

This is Nyx, manipulator of minds.

On her own or with a group, Nyx can turn the tide of battle in her favor.

Release Date: January 29th, 2013

Scramble the enemy's psyche with her subliminal touch, turning friend into foe as chaos ensues. Manipulate the mind as Nyx to dominate their will, cripple their defenses, and reflect their collective strikes with her psychic prowess. Nyx infiltrated the enemy's ranks in Update 6.0 (2013-01-29).

Trivia

  • Nyx is the name of the Greek goddess of the night, the offspring of chaos.
    • During development, Nyx originally went by the name of "Jade".
  • Apart from the helmet and gender, Nyx's overall design is almost identical to ExcaliburIcon272 Excalibur. This was the result of a scrapped attempt to create alternative genders to the Warframes during the pre-alpha stages of the game.
    • This prototype Nyx was practically identical to Excalibur, with the only major difference being the body shape. Prototype-Nyx's base helmet (which was no different from Excalibur's base helmet design-wise) would occasionally reveal itself in earlier builds of the game, replacing the icon of the Menticide Helmet blueprint during extraction.
      MenticideIsSpy

      Screenshot of the Prototype/Menticide icon bug.

    • For a long time, the silhouette Chaos130xWhite Chaos projected in front of affected enemies also used prototype-Nyx's helmet, rather than her current base helmet. This was eventually corrected in Update 12.4 (2014-03-05).
  • Nyx is similar in design to Nadia Sudek's Nemesis armor from Dark Sector.
    • The Nyx Nemesis Skin further reveals the fact that Nyx was most likely based on Nemesis.
    • This makes Nyx the second-oldest known Warframe design.
  • Oddly, Nyx's default color scheme has three separate energy colors, the first being the deep blue energy seen within her Warframe such as the lights upon her helmet, the second being on minor effects within abilities and along her wrists and the last being for major power effects, a bright orange glow as seen around enemies within MindControl130xWhite Mind Control.
    • All of these will be set to one custom color if her energy color is changed.
  • When using MindControl130xWhite Mind Control on an enemy, the Tenno script that appears and floats around the enemy says "Obey".

Notes

  • Nyx Prime, compared to NyxIcon272 Nyx:
    • Higher Shields (365/465 vs. 270/370)
    • Higher Armor (135 vs. 105)
    • Higher Starting Energy (150 vs. 100)
    • Higher Sprint Speed (1.125 vs. 1.1)
    • Additional Vazarin Pol Polarity (Madurai PolNaramon PolVazarin Pol vs. Madurai PolNaramon Pol)
  • As with any other Prime Warframe, moving close to the location of an Orokin Void Death Orb will restore a pulse of 250 Energy to nearby allies, even if that Death Orb is inactive, destroyed, or non-present. This effect can only occur once per orb.

Trivia

  • Nyx Prime was the first Prime Warframe to have two enhanced stats, at the time she received increased Armor and Sprint speed over her normal version. When Update 17.0 (2015-07-31) launched she received an additional boost in Shields.
  • Enemies affected by Nyx Prime's Chaos130xWhite Chaos now show a Nyx Prime holding a BratonPrime Braton Prime instead of a regular NyxIcon272 Nyx holding a standard Braton Braton.

Patch History

Update 36.0 (2024-06-18)

Line Of Sight Improvements

As a continuation of our efforts to improve LOS systems within Warframe, which have been ongoing since Dante Unbound, we’ve made further strides towards improving how we handle these checks.

From a technical standpoint, we’ve improved the consistency and performance of the underlying LOS systems within the game by handling how we detect unrendered targets, in addition to improvements we’ve made in recent hotfixes.

Abilities that use LOS checks already have been updated to this improved technology! Additionally, with these improvements, we can now easily shift over any Warframe Ability that relies on LOS checks to be seamlessly migrated to this new, more accurate system, meaning we’re able to act faster on any outlying offenders that may arise.

To name a few Warframe abilities that benefit from this with Jade Shadows:

  • Nyx’s Psychic Bolts
General Changes
  • Defense missions will no longer be unnecessarily extended whenever enemies are affected by Nyx’s “Mind Control.” Instead, they’ll work similarly to Revenant’s Thralls, where invulnerable enemies don’t count towards the remaining enemy tally required to progress to the next wave.
TOP FIXES
  • Fixed Zephyr and Nyx being unable to acquire Decrees in Duviri while using Absorb.

Hotfix 35.5.7 (2024-04-17)

  • Fixed Nyx’s “Pacifying Bolts” Augment Mod not throwing an additional 3 force Psychic Bolts as intended.

Hotfix 35.5.2 (2024-03-28)

  • Fixed a script error caused by Nyx’s Psychic Bolts ability.

Update 35.5 (2024-03-27)

  • Fixed Nyx’s Psychic Bolts may cease to apply non-damage effects to targets after playing for a short time for Clients.

Hotfix 35.0.9 (2024-01-17)

  • Fixed Nyx’s Chaos Sphere ring VFX appearing as a very thin line.

Update 34.0 (2023-10-18)

Base vs Final Stats in Modding - Health / Energy / Shield / Armor Stat Overhaul

If you’ve spent any time invested in the deeper nuances of Modding, you may be familiar with “Warframe Math” - math that upon first glance doesn’t really make sense, but once you learn the inner workings of the game, it all comes together. While we can appreciate the value that complex systems offer to a certain subsect of players, there are other aspects of the game that should have clear and understandable outcomes. Namely: Shield, Health, Energy, and Armor Modding.

Pop quiz: what is 300 + 440%? If you answered 740, you may just be an Excalibur player.

Vitality (+440% Heath), Redirection (+440% Shields), Flow (+150% Energy), and Steel Fiber (+110% Armor) come with large modifier values that don’t seem to match their outcome in-game. This is because these Mods apply their multiplier to the base stats of the Warframe - i.e., the stats you have at Rank 0. In the Excalibur example, a Rank 30 Excalibur’s Health stat of 300 earns an additional 440 Health from max rank Vitality (+440% Heath) since it applies to his base rank Health stat of 100, resulting in 740 total health.

In this update, we have removed this obfuscation by having Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor Mods apply to the stats of Warframes at their current rank. Continuing our Excalibur example, instead of Vitality always applying to Excalibur’s base rank 100 Health, it would apply to his Health stat based on his rank - namely, the stat you can actually see in your Arsenal. If your Excalibur were Rank 30, his Health stat would be 300, which means Vitality’s multiplier would be calculated off of 300.

With previous Health and Mod values, additional adjustments are needed to make this revision work while maintaining game balance. By only changing where the multiplier applies, a Rank 30 Excalibur would receive an extra 1,320 Health from max rank Vitality, resulting in a total health stat of 1,600. This outcome is a significant buff, which is not the intention of this system change.

To remedy this, we approached this problem in two ways:

1 - We reduced the overall multiplier for Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor Mods.
Since these now affect Max Rank Warframe stats, these Mods need to scale differently to maintain the status quo. Additionally, we wanted these new values to be as clear and understandable to all players as possible! Here are a few examples of these value changes:

  • Vitality: Reduced from +440% to +100% Health
  • Redirection: Reduced from +440% to +100% Shield Capacity
  • Steel Fiber: Reduced from +110% to +100% Armor
  • Flow: Reduced from +150% to +100% Energy Max

Note: These are not all of the Mods affected by this change. We share the comprehensive list further down in this section of the update notes.

Doing some quick math, this means that a Rank 30 Excalibur (300 Health) with a reworked Vitality Mod (+100% Health, applied to the final Health stat) would receive 300 extra Health, for a total of 600. That, in contrast, is a nerf, which we also don’t want to do.

So, our next step:

2 - We adjusted Warframe Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor values to keep the end result of the revised Mods as close to the original values as possible.

With this change, Excalibur’s Rank 30 Health stat is 370. With +100% Health from a max Vitality Mod, his resulting Health stat would be 740, which matches what it was originally.

While this path to the same result may seem a little complicated, the outcome matches our intention: we want players to be able to look at their Health, Shield, and Armor Mods, and be able to understand how they affect the stats they see in their Arsenal.

In addition to everything above, we also increased the base stat values for Warframes so that these revised Mods offer similar value for lower-ranked Frames. To do so, we reduced the amount of Health/Shield/Energy that Warframes earn per rank in half, and transferred the sum of that value to their base stats.

For Armor, this is the one stat that does not increase with your Warframe’s level (with some exceptions). Armor values across the board have been slightly increased to compensate for the Mod changes.

Not to beat a dead Kaithe, but Mods will now be applying to the Max Rank stat instead of the Base Rank. You may look at these numbers and think “nerf” or “buff” depending, but the outcome is that total Modded values are the same, if not a little higher in some cases.

Warframe Stat Changes:

NYX
Health: Base Rank - 270 (from 100) / Max Rank - 370 (from 300)
Shields: Base Rank - 270 (from 100) / Max Rank - 370 (from 300)
Armor: Base Rank - 105 (from 100)
Energy: Base Rank - 175 (from 150) / Max Rank - 225 (from 225)

NYX PRIME
Health: Base Rank - 270 (from 100) / Max Rank - 370 (from 300)
Shields: Base Rank - 365 (from 125) / Max Rank - 465 (from 375)
Armor: Base Rank - 135 (from 125)
Energy: Base Rank - 175 (from 150) / Max Rank - 225 (from 225)

While there may be significant changes to Warframe Stats and Mod values as a part of this overhaul, the end result is that your Builds should mostly stay the same. The key difference is the added clarity of what your Health / Shield / Energy / Armor Mods do in your Upgrade screens!

Top Fixes:
  • Fixed Styanax’s Intrepid Stand Augment Mod unintentionally granting mind control immunity to Nyx’s mind-controlled enemies.

Update 32.3 (2023-02-15)

  • Fixed Nyx’s Absorb not absorbing damage.

Hotfix 32.0.7 (2022-09-28)

  • Fixed Nyx’s Psychic Bolts (with 125%+ Ability Strength) not removing all Shields from Steel Path enemies.

Update 32.0 (2022-09-07)

WARFRAME AUGMENT BUFFS PART 2

Nyx’s Pacifying Bolts

  • Was: Affected enemies will be confused for 10 seconds.
  • Now: Core Augment function unchanged. Creates an additional 3 Bolts on cast.

Update 31.6 (2022-06-09)

  • Fixed Nyx being able to Mind Control stationary turrets in the Plains of Eidolon and the Orb Vallis, causing them to teleport to her when she gets far enough away.
  • Fixed Nyx’s Psychic Bolts not removing enemy defenses or stunning them if the Pacifying Bolts Augment mod is equipped.
  • Fixed bug where hopping on K-Drive with Nyx Absorb active causing her to be ragdolled off.

Update 31.0 (2021-12-15)

  • Fixed Mind Controlling a Thrall as Nyx preventing it from being killed by a melee finisher.

Hotfix 30.9.3 (2021-11-12)

  • Fixed inability to roll while using Nyx’s Assimilate Augment on controller or a custom roll keybind.

Update 30.9 (2021-11-11)

NYX ABILITY CHANGES:

Mind Control

The thinking behind these changes are fueled by the amount of investment towards this single Target, and having that pay off more in your favor.

  • Base 500 percent Damage increase to the Target itself that you then feed into with your weapons DPS.
  • Increased base Duration to 45 seconds at maximum rank.
  • Mind Controlled Target now teleports to keep up! This acts similar to other allies (Wukong’s twin, etc).

Psychic Bolts

While this change is minor and provides more of a visual cue, the goal here was to provide a better presentation / feedback when Psychic Bolts connect with a Target.

  • Added a minor one-time stagger to targets bit by Psychic Bolts.

Absorb

  • Increased base Range to 15m at max rank.
  • Scaling Range is now capped at 50m (solving for an exploit), ensuring Damage is balanced by Energy Capacity.
  • Nyx’s Assimilate Augment now allows you to roll, similar to Mesa’s Waltz!
  • Nyx’s Absorb stat screen now shows max explosion radius value.
  • Absorbs additive weapon damage bonus now applies to the player's equipped Melee weapon.
  • Minor tweak to the GPU particles to clean them up!

Hotfix 30.7.6 (2021-09-23)

  • Fixed an issue where you could still do a Mercy kill on a Mind Controlled enemy, except the damage from it was delayed meaning you could perform it over and over.

Hotfix 29.2.1 (2020-10-01)

  • Fixed a script error when casting Nyx’s Psychic Bolts ability.

Hotfix 27.4.4 (2020-05-07)

  • Enemy summons can now be mind-controlled by abilities. Previously, there was a mechanic where 'owned' NPCs would not be affected by mind control, but now this only applies to allied owned NPCs (Sentinels, Pets, followers) so that there's no misleading things happening with Mind Control abilities.

Update 27.4 (2020-05-01)

  • Nyx Ability videos have been added to their respective Arsenals!

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

  • Armor Change:
    • Nyx: 15 to 100
    • Nyx Prime: 50 to 125
    • Why: The conversation surrounding Arcane Guardian led to a significant review of Armor stats on Warfarmes. The Majority of Warframes received an increase in the Armor stat to increase survivability. Compounded with Shield Gating and the numerous other changes covered, we expect a much more fair feeling playing field for all Warframes.

Hotfix 25.6.3 (2019-08-14)

  • Fixed Nyx’s Absorb consuming more than its base of 4 Energy per second even when not being attacked.

Hotfix 25.1.2 (2019-06-12)

  • Fixed Nyx’s armband Energy color persisting as default.
  • Fixed Nyx Prime / Nyx Immortal Skins forearm Energy color persisting as default.

Hotfix 25.0.6 (2019-05-29)

  • Fixed Impact Status and ragdolling breaking enemies out of Nyx’s Pacify effect before its Duration is up.

Hotfix 24.7.2 (2019-04-17)

  • Fixed Nyx’s Psychic Bolts ability sometimes going silent.

Hotfix 24.7.0.1 (2019-04-10)

  • Nyx’s Psychic Bolts now have an instant recast which simply selects 6 new targets and despells on older targets automatically.

Hotfix 24.2.9 (2019-01-18)
PSYCHIC BOLTS

  • Adding sounds to Psychic Bolts deactivate hold and end - you can dispell this ability by holding '2' by default!
  • Improved Psychic Bolts disabled FX.

ABSORB

  • Nyx Absorb explosion radius increases based on the Damage Absorbed (capped Nyx to 75m max).
  • Absorb now has 'lingering Absorption' - Nyx's Absorb now converts a % of the Absorbed Damage into a self Damage buff when the ability ends for a limited time, dispelled on recast.
    • Added +400% Damage cap to Nyx Absorb Damage buff.

Hotfix 24.2.7 (2018-01-09)

  • Lowered Nyx’s Abilities volume for less fatigue while using Abilities repeatedly.
  • Fixed Corpus Ospreys not following you closely anymore when under Nyx’s Mind Control ability.

Hotfix 24.2.2 (2018-12-18)

  • Updated Nyx's Mind Control + Psychic Bolts and Titania's Lantern ability descriptions to better reflect their recent ability changes.

Update 24.2 (2018-12-18)
Nyx Changes:
Nyx is the master of psychic manipulation - her abilities are now capable of Debuffing, CC'ing or dealing damage directly through means of psychic energy and manipulation!

Nyx's abilities have received an audio refresh - new sounds have been added to her powers!

Passive:

  • Nyx's Passive now causes enemies to miss her more often.
  • Nyx's last Passive was to randomly disarm enemies when hit by powers. Since her revisited kit depends on enemies effectively hitting each other, we changed the passive to make Nyx simply harder to hit.
  • Nyx’s passive ability to make enemies miss will be deactivated when she is using Absorb, meaning no shot will be wasted!

Mind Control:

  • Mind Control has a 4 second wind up at the start where incoming damage will cause the target's damage output to increase. The stronger your weaponry, the deadlier the output of your victim!
    • Reminder: All damage inflicted to the target will apply once Nyx deactivates Mind Control, or when the Duration runs out.
  • Better 'follow Nyx and attack enemies' AI pass.
  • Mind Control can now be cast while moving, and no longer halts Nyx in her tracks!
  • The cast time for Mind Control has been decreased, so you can better use the 4-second window to ‘power up’ your new minion!

Psychic Bolts:

  • No longer deals any damage and will temporarily disable Armor & Shield, slow down Infested units, and disable Ancients' Auras.
  • Psychic Bolts can be cast once on up to 6 targets. Kill these targets before you can cast again, OR hold '2' to reset targets and cast again!

Absorb:

  • Absorb damage type is now based on the damage types it absorbs.

Update 23.2 (2018-08-02)

  • Fixed Nyx Mind Controlled Shield Ospreys spawned from Corpus Tech and Attack Drones spawned from Fusion Moas not being friendly.

Hotfix 21.7.1 (2017-09-12)

  • Fixed casting Nyx’s Absorb when hitting an enemy with a "grappling hook weapon" allowing you to move around.

Update 21.7 (2017-09-09)

  • Nyx Nemesis Skin has received the PBR treatment!
  • Fixed the Edo Chest Piece sticking out on the Nyx Carnifex Skin.
  • Fixed the Pakal right shoulder Armor clipping into Nyx’s arm.
  • Fixed the Embolist chest piece clipping into the Nyx Immortal, Saikou, Athena, and Carnifex Skins.

Hotfix 21.3.1 (2017-08-04)

  • Fixed Nyx being able to sometimes cast Chaos on Mobile Defense terminals, causing it to spin around.

Hotfix 21.1.1 (2017-07-20)

  • Fixed enemies affected by Nyx’s Chaos, as well as Radiation procs, not taking increased damage from faction damage Mods.

Hotfix 21.0.9 (2017-07-17)
