All drop rates data is obtained from DE's official drop tables. See Mission Rewards#Standard Missions for definitions on reward table rotations. Drop chances are rounded to two decimal places, following the official drop tables repository.
Expected means a player can expect to obtain at least one of a drop every N attempts on average.
Nearly Guaranteed refers to the total number of attempts a player needs to obtain a 1 in 10^2,3, and 4 probability not to have recieved a single drop (99%, 99.9%, and 99.99% probability to have received at least one drop).
The combined probability of multiple drops is 1 - ((1-A%) * (1-B%) * ...) (add drops in same rotation)

  • Oberon (also spelled Auberon) is classically portrayed as a king of the fairies in medieval and Renaissance literature. He is best known as a character in William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream, in which he is Consort to Titania, Queen of the Fairies.
  • Oberon used to share his name with a mission node on Uranus, which in astronomy corresponded to one of Uranus' moonsTitaniaIcon272.png Titania follows this same trend.
  • Developer Digital Extremes has described Oberon's ability design as based around the idea of a Paladin or Druid.
    • Oberon was first constructed under the name Paladin. (internally, Lotus/StoreItems/Powersuits/Paladin)
  • In its first conception, Oberon's HallowedGround130xDark.png Hallowed Ground ability was called "Stairway to Heaven".
  • Oberon's visual design is likely modeled after the white stag, a rare, pale-pelted deer that plays a mythological role in many cultures.
    • In Arthurian legend, the white stag was said to be nearly impossible to capture and seeing a white stag was an omen that it was time for the knights of the kingdom to pursue a quest.
    • Oberon bears the white stag's likeness with his pale coat, antlered default helmet, and cervine hooves.
  • Oberon's close ties to the Madurai Pol.svg Madurai polarity — a sharp, sweeping symbol linked primarily to damage mods — reinforce his theme as a zealous warrior.
  • Oberon Component Blueprint, as dropped by an Eximus enemy.

    Previously, Oberon's blueprints were obtained in the Everest, Earth assassination mission by the old model of Councillor Vay Hek. (This changed in Update 13.0 (2014-04-09) by which the blueprints are now dropped by Eximus units in any mission they appear.)
  • Compared to the construction materials of other Warframes, which are often similar, Oberon's assembly is the only one requiring two Orokin Cells and two Gallium.
  • Prior to the Update 29.10 (2021-03-19) Railjack update, Oberon was one of the only 3 Warframes whose component blueprints were dropped from non-boss enemies.
  • Oberon shares a similar physical build with NekrosIcon272.png Nekros, having slender arms and legs in comparison to most male Warframes.
  • Oberon has two separate idle animations for primary weapons.
  • Oberon is the 3rd tallest frame, surpassed only by LimboIcon272.png Limbo and ChromaIcon272.png Chroma.
  • The curving spikes on Oberon's shoulders are considered customizable Armor parts; equipping alternative arm plates will replace them.
  • Prior to Update 29.10 (2021-03-19), Oberon's component blueprints dropped from Eximus enemies.

Greed and denial will seduce any destruction... even our own. We're blind to future consequence, casting our debts on those to come. But what if now, the Gray Mother sought revenge?

A brutal thorn... piercing the gushing ulcers of waste and industry.

A new green... sown upon sanguine ground. Fertilized... with the blood and bone of its defilers.


Release Date: May 30th, 2017

  • Oberon Prime's design might be a reference to bulls, and their connection to nature in many religions and cultures.
    • His design also features several parts resembling crenellated walls, such as the battlements of a castle, likely referencing Oberon's knightly and protective nature.

Subsumable to Helminth

  • Oberon smites an enemy target with hallowed light up to 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 meters away, dealing 150 / 200 / 300 / 500 damage while knocking-down with a 100% DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation status chance.
  • Additionally, the target emits 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 orb projectiles that seek out enemies within 5 / 7.5 / 10 / 12.5 meters from the main target, over a duration of 12 seconds. Each orb deals 75 / 85 / 100 / 150 DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation damage, plus 15% / 20% / 25% / 35% of the main target's maximum health and shields divided among the number of orbs; additionally, orbs stagger and DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture weaken their enemy targets, with a low DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation status chance.
    • Orb Damage is affected by TheoremDemulcent64x.png Theorem Demulcent.
    • Number of orbs and their base damage are affected by Ability Strength.
    • Orb lifespan is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Orb homing range is affected by Ability Range.
    • Hitpoints to damage conversion and status chances are not affected by mods.
    • DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture Weaken reduces the target's damage output by 30% for 6 seconds.
    • If there are more orbs than enemies in homing range, the remainder will fire in random directions bouncing off of any environmental surface they touch, locking on to the first enemy which crosses into their homing range.
    • Multiple orbs from a single cast can hit the same enemy if they travel close enough to the target after bouncing.
  • Smite is a one-handed ability and as such will not interrupt full actions such as reloading, shooting, or charging weapons.
  • Subsuming Oberon to the Helminth will offer Smite and its augments to be used by other Warframes.

Main article: Smite Infusion

Smite Infusion is a Warframe Augment Mod for OberonIcon272.png Oberon that allows Smite130xDark.png Smite to be held on cast, creating a wave of energy traveling outward from the user that temporarily grants the caster and nearby allies additional DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation damage to all attacks.

1 65% 32s 15m 7
2 80% 36s 15m 8
3 100% 40s 15m 9

Tips & Tricks
  • Smite's DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact / DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation damage type is particularly effective vs Corpus Shields and Grineer Alloy Armor, and less effective against most Infested units.
  • Try using Smite's guaranteed DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation proc to misdirect enemies by turning a high-threat target and nearby foes against each other.
    • Moreover, the additional DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture proc forces enemies to expend more time fighting against their confused comrade.

  • When affected by the critical chance buff from a Smeeta Kavat's Charm, the orbs will deal orange critical hits, though will only do 0-1 additional damage depending on target. (E.g: level 125 Chargers receive 0 additional damage from the critical hits, but level 125 Bombards receive 1 more damage, tested at 154% Ability Strength.)

    Main article: Hallowed Ground (edit)
    HallowedGround.png OberonHallowedGround.png
    Hallowed Ground
    Sanctifies the ground before Oberon with righteous fire, inflicting damage to any enemy that stands in the flames.
    Strength:25 / 50 / 75 / 100 (DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation damage)

    5 / 10 / 12 / 15% (status chance)

    Duration:10 / 15 / 17 / 20 s
    Range:90 / 100 / 120 / 180° (angle)

    8 / 10 / 12 / 15 m (radius)

    • Oberon consecrates the ground in an angle of 90 / 100 / 120 / 180 degrees in front of him, spanning up to 8 / 10 / 12 / 15 meters, for 10 / 15 / 17 / 20 seconds. Enemies standing on the area of effect are dealt 25 / 50 / 75 / 100 DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation damage with a 5 / 10 / 12 / 15% DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation status chance every half second, while allies are relinquished of any negative status effects and become immune to them for as long as they are standing on the area.
      • Damage and status chance are affected by Ability Strength.
      • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
      • Radius and angle are affected by Ability Range.
        • The radius follows the expression Base Range + 11.25 × (Ability Range - 1)
          • For example, with a maxed Mod TT 20px.png Stretch, the radius will increase to
            15 + 11.25 × (1.45 - 1) = 20.0625 meters.
        • The angle follows the expression Base Angle + 135° × (Ability Range - 1)
          • For example, with a maxed Stretch, the angle will increase to
            180° + 135° × (1.45 - 1) = 240.75°).
          • Therefore, 234% Ability Range is needed to bring the angle up to 360°, making it a full circle. This will also increase the radius to 15 + 11.25 × (2.34 - 1) = 30.075 meters.
    • Status effect immunity applies to physical disabling effects such as knockdowns and staggers.
      • It does not apply to Eximus energy drains or Nauseous Crawler disables. DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic procs from Ancient Disruptors are resisted; however, Disruptors are still able to drain a small amount of energy with every attack.
      • DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation procs, however, are not removed from already irradiated allies, but only from Oberon himself, and only with his own Hallowed Ground.
    • Enemies and allies must be grounded and standing on the area to be affected by Hallowed Ground.
      • Flying enemies that are too high above the ground may not be affected by this ability.
    • Ability Synergy:
      • If Oberon or any allies affected by Renewal130xDark.png Renewal stands on Hallowed Ground, they will receive the Iron Renewal buff, which grants 125 / 150 / 175 / 200 bonus armor for as long as Renewal is active. Once Renewal is deactivated, the armor buff will remain on all affected units for 20 more seconds.
        • The armor bonus is affected by Ability Strength.
        • Bonus armor is added after other armor increases (e.g. an Oberon with a maxed Mod TT 20px.png Steel Fiber and Mod TT 20px.png Intensify will have (150 × 2.1) + (200 × 1.3) = 575 armor).
        • Buff duration is affected by Ability Duration.
        • As Mod TT 20px.png Link Armor scales with the player's armor, companions with this mod benefit twice from Iron Renewal, as the companion links into the player's increased armor and then gets buffed by Iron Renewal.
      • Enemies that survive Reckoning130xDark.png Reckoning while standing on Hallowed Ground will have their armor permanently reduced by 10% / 15% / 20% / 30%.
        • Armor reduction is affected by Ability Strength.
          • Armor reduction is applied to the enemy's base armor when accounting multiple casts.
    • Can only have 4 instances of Hallowed Ground active at once per player.
    • If cast in midair, Oberon will instantly drop to the ground to perform this ability.
    • Hallowed Ground spawns foliage inside its area of effect as visual representation. Oberon creates a field of grass, while Oberon Prime creates a field of ferns. Grass and ferns are affected by Oberon's chosen Warframe Accent color.
      • The shimmering energy field encompassing the ground is affected by Oberon's chosen Warframe energy color.

    Main article: Hallowed Eruption

    Hallowed Eruption is a Warframe Augment Mod for OberonIcon272.png Oberon. Upon casting HallowedGround130xDark.png Hallowed Ground again with a previous instance still active, the first one will immediately expire, dealing all remaining damage in a single instance with a chance to deal DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation proc. This mod also passively increases Hallowed Ground's duration.

    Rank Status Chance Bonus Duration Cost
    0 30% 25% 6
    1 50% 50% 7
    2 70% 75% 8
    3 100% 100% 9

    Tips & Tricks
    • Enemies will traverse and fight through Hallowed Ground without any special attempts to evade its area of effect.
    • Narrow pathways such as doorways and halls are effective at forcing groups of enemies to cluster into Hallowed Ground.
    • Summoning multiple, overlapping layers of Hallowed Ground will deal the full combined damage over time to enemies.
    • Hallowed Ground is most efficiently used in areas where constant enemy and ally activity is expected over an extended period of time.
    • Hallowed Ground's status effect immunity can be used to pass through environmental traps unhindered, such as Grineer DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic Sensor Bars and Corpus Laser Barriers.
      • Note however that activating these traps in spy missions will still trigger vault alarms.
    • Hallowed Ground will make players immune to to DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation and DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic singularities in Sorties.

    Main article: Renewal (edit)
    Renewal2.png OberonRenewal.png
    Healing waves of energy flow outward from Oberon to his allies, regenerating health over time.
    Energy Drain: 2 s−1
    Energy Drain per Target: 3 s−1

    Duration:20% / 25% / 35% / 45% (bleedout slow)
    20 s (buff)
    Range:10 / 15 / 20 / 25 m

    • Oberon channels a field around him with radius of 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 meters. Ally players entering the field will receive a buff which will regenerate 15 / 20 / 25 / 40 health every second, while allied summoned units affected will regenerate 5 / 6.7 / 8.3 / 13.3 health every second (1/3rd the normal rate), for as long as Renewal remains active, regardless of range. Fully healed allies are additionally cleared of all negative status effects.
      • Initial heal and health over time are affected by Ability Strength.
      • The duration of the expanding pulse is inversely affected by Ability Strength, meaning it reaches its total range faster the more Ability Strength is used.
      • Field radius is affected by Ability Range.
      • Allies affected by Renewal include all Warframes, Companions, Eidolon Lures, summoned allied units such as Specters, allied Invasion units, Hostages, Kavor Defectors, Sortie and Arbitrations Defense Operatives, and Defense Objects.
        • Renewal will continue to heal all affected targets for the duration of the ability, even if all their health has been restored and regardless of distance. Buff will remain until skill is deactivated, Oberon runs out of energy, or Oberon/ally falls off the map.
    • Incapacitated allies will have their bleedout time slowed by 20% / 25% / 35% / 45% for the ability's duration.
      • Bleedout slow is affected by Ability Duration.
      • Bleedout slow is capped at 90%.
      • Renewal will show an additive increase to the bleedout timer, rather than slowing the rate at which it counts down.
      • Allies will have their bleedout timer extended or reduced even if they are already incapacitated when Renewal starts/stops affecting them.
      • As Mod TT 20px.png Loyal Companion scales with the player's bleedout timer, companions with this mod benefit twice from Renewal, as the companion links into the player's extended bleedout and then gets buffed by Renewal, potentially allowing several minutes of bleedout.
    • Ability Synergy: If Oberon or any allies affected by Renewal stands on HallowedGround130xDark.png Hallowed Ground, they will receive the Iron Renewal buff, which grants 125 / 150 / 175 / 200 bonus armor for as long as Renewal is active. Once Renewal is deactivated, the armor buff will remain on all affected units for 20 more seconds.
      • The armor bonus is affected by Ability Strength.
      • Bonus armor is added after other armor increases (e.g. an Oberon with a maxed Mod TT 20px.png Steel Fiber and Mod TT 20px.png Intensify will have (150 × 2.1) + (200 × 1.3) = 575 armor).
      • Buff duration is affected by Ability Duration.
      • As Mod TT 20px.png Link Armor scales with the player's armor, companions with this mod benefit twice from Iron Renewal, as the companion links into the player's increased armor and then gets buffed by Iron Renewal.
    • Renewal drains 2 energy per second to remain activated. When allied targets are below their maximum health, Renewal will drain an additional 3 energy per second for every allied player and 1 energy per second for every allied summoned unit affected by its healing; Renewal will end if Oberon runs out of energy, it is dispelled, or if deactivated manually by pressing the ability key again (default 3 ).
    • Multiple instances of Renewal's healing per second, and of Iron Renewal armor buff, do stack with each other.
    • Renewal's initial casting area will not expire unless Renewal is deactivated, allowing allies to receive the buff when they choose.
      • If Renewal is removed from Oberon or an Ally, (such as by falling/jumping out of bounds, or from the effects of a Nullifier or Nul Scrambus) they will not be able to regain the buff until Oberon re-casts Renewal. They can still gain the buff from another allied Oberon, though, as long as that Oberon's buff has not also been removed.

    Main article: Phoenix Renewal

    Phoenix Renewal is a Warframe Augment Mod for OberonIcon272.png Oberon's Renewal130xDark.png Renewal. If a player takes fatal damage while under the effects of Renewal, instead of becoming incapacitated, the player is healed for a percentage of their health and granted 5 seconds of invulnerability. Each player that triggers Phoenix Renewal's effects must individually undergo a 90-second cooldown before they can benefit again.

    • Oberon lifts enemies within 8 / 10 / 12 / 15 meters up into the air and violently slams them to the ground, dealing 500 / 750 / 1000 / 1250 damage and applying knockdown and a DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation proc. Additionally, Reckoning deals 100 / 225 / 400 / 625 extra damage to enemies affected by DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation status effects. An enemy that dies by the effect of this ability has a 25% / 35% / 45% / 50% chance of spawning a Health Orb.
    • Affected enemies that survive the impact will emit an intense flash of light, blinding surrounding enemies within 2.5 / 3 / 3.5 / 4 meters that were unaffected by the initial cast, for 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 seconds.
    • Ability Synergy: Enemies that survive Reckoning while standing on HallowedGround130xDark.png Hallowed Ground will have their armor permanently reduced by 10% / 15% / 20% / 30%.
      • Armor reduction is affected by Ability Strength.
        • Armor reduction is applied to the enemy's base armor when accounting multiple casts.
    • Can hit enemies above and below the player.

    • Use Reckoning when surrounded by a large group of enemies to maximize its offensive effects and health orb generation.
    • Similar to Smite, Reckoning's DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact / DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation damage type is particularly effective vs Corpus Shields and Grineer Alloy Armor, while being less effective against most types of Infested units.
    • Reckoning's widespread DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation proc can be used to tactically nullify the threat of a large area of enemies, relieving allies outside of the area (temporarily) from needing to deal with them.
      • Try Smite130xDark.png Smite for smaller-scale misdirection.
    • Enemies blinded by Reckoning's outer flashes are vulnerable to melee finishers.
    • With the health-to-energy conversion of an equipped Mod TT 20px.png Equilibrium mod, dropped health orbs from Reckoning may meet or exceed the ability's energy cost.
    • Pair with the Mod TT 20px.png Health Conversion mod to gain additional armor from Reckoning's health orbs.
    • Against higher level enemies, Ability Strength benefits health orb generation by increasing Reckoning's potential to kill.
    • Using Smite130xDark.png Smite and HallowedGround130xDark.png Hallowed Ground to confuse enemies before using Reckoning, successfully increasing damage output.
      • Reckoning already has a 100% chance to confuse targets, increasing its own damage with further casts.

    • Occasionally, if Oberon is knocked down just as Reckoning is cast, enemies will be attacked as normal without Oberon doing the skill animation. Only upon standing up from being previously knocked down does Oberon then perform the animation.
    • Casting Smite130xDark.png Smite then immediately casting Reckoning removes the casting animation of Reckoning, allowing for player movement while casting Reckoning.
    • Rarely, spamming the ability on a group of enemies will make some enemies hover permanently in the air, much to the effect of Bastille130xDark.png Bastille. This may be caused by an enemy that is being lifted is struck again by the ability but not brought down.

    • Changed Oberon's Passive description from ‘buff’ to ‘link’ since allied companions stats are calculated based on Oberon’s.

    Update 30.7 (2021-09-08)

    • Fixed Oberon’s Smite VFX color not reflecting the player’s custom color choice.

    Hotfix 29.10.8 (2021-03-31)

    • Added acquisition tips to Oberon’s Component Blueprints as they now live in Railjack.

    • Oberon have been added to Railjack rewards! Oberon Component Blueprints can be found in Grineer Railjack Point of Interest and Skirmish Bonus reward tables

    Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

    • Armor Change:
      • Oberon: 150 to 175
      • 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.

    Update 27.1 (2020-02-04)

    • Fixed damage done by Oberon’s Hallowed Ground during The Index will dramatically increase if the player is in Operator mode.

      • Oberon Hallowed Ground

    Update 20.7 (2017-06-07)

    • Fixed Oberon’s shoulder armor appearing black.

    Hotfix 20.6.4 (2017-05-31)

    • Introduced Oberon Prime.

      • Tweaked Hallowed Ground FX to reduce performance issues.
      • Range Mods now apply 75% to Range (distance from Oberon) and 75% to Arc Angle of Hallowed Ground (before was 25% to Range and 75% to Arc before).
    • Renewal
      • Oberon’s Renewal now heals friendly summoned units (IE Nekros’ Shadows of the Dead) at 1/3 the rate but consumes 1/3 the Energy drain for doing so. The change to have Renewal not affect friendly summons was met with varying opinions, and is now further tweaked to meet a happy middle ground.
      • Oberon’s Renewal Armor buff will be applied to allies anytime they step on Hallowed Ground while Renewal is active on them as opposed to them having to be on Hallowed Ground when Renewal hits them.
      • Renewal no longer affects Nidus’ Maggots as to not prevent them from exploding (their intended behavior).
    • Reckoning
      • Oberon’s Reckoning Armor debuff is now based on the target's base Armor instead of current Armor (meaning no more diminishing returns).

    • Fixed Renewal not being applied to allies in bleed out as it did previously.

    Hotfix 20.3.1 (2017-04-27)

    • Conclave: Decreased Oberon’s Renewal stats to balance the removal of Heal Time in Conclave.
    • Smite:
      • Increased Smite's projectile damage from 20% of the target's max Health + Shield to 35%.
      • Added base damage to Smite and its projectiles. With the damage of Smite scaled into its projectiles, this will give Smite more punch when facing lower level enemies.
    • Renewal:
      • Oberon’s ability to keep himself and his teammates alive is a large part of his overall role. Feedback brought forth further tweaks with the intention to solidify this role.
      • Removed Heal Time from Renewal. Renewal now functions more conventionally as a toggle which drains 2 Energy per second while active + 3 Energy per second per target actively being healed. *Please note that Trinity's Energy *Vampire will not give Oberon Energy while Renewal is active.
      • Added the "is active" ability icon animation to Renewal.
      • Fixed Renewal bleedout buff being removed when entering bleedout.

    *We are aware of a UI bug where the Arsenal stats for Renewal show that Energy per target is not affected by Efficiency/Duration Mods. A fix will come at a later date- we wanted to get this out ASAP!

    • Hallowed Ground:
      • Fixed Hallowed Ground being impossible to see with low particle quality setting. *Please note we are still working on Hallowed Ground FX improvements overall.
      • Fixed a script error with Hallowed Eruption Augment upon deactivating while another Oberon has Hallowed Ground active, resulting in the FX to remain forever.
      • Fixed Hallowed Ground & Hallowed Eruption Augment not hurting ragdolled enemies.
