OperatorSomaticLink

A Tenno in the Somatic Link.

...This is who you really are. A Tenno, more than human... but once a child like any other.

—The Lotus

The Operator (referred to as the Dreamer by the Worm Queen, Kiddo by The Man in The Wall, the Void Demon by Helminth, Star-Child by Vitruvian Ordis, and simply Devil by Ballas ) is the Tenno represented by the player, a young human whose VoidTearIcon b Void powers are the source of their Warframe's abilities. Operators control the Warframes through a process known as Transference, which uses a device called the Somatic Link to aid in channeling and consequently transfer the Operator's consciousness and powers into their Warframes that they control as a surrogate body, even over long distances.

As a game mechanic, a player first gains control over their Operator at the conclusion of The Second Dream quest, and continues to gradually evolve as they obtain new abilities at the conclusion of The War Within, and their weapons and arcanes at The Quills. Their importance lies in improving their grasp of the Tenno's five great schools in the form of the Focus system.

Functions related to the Operator can be accessed in the Orbiter's Transference Room by interacting with the Somatic Link inside, or by accessing the Operator option under the player's Settings.

FocusEdit

OperatorFocusMenu

Focus Menu and Daily Focus Cap

Main article: Focus

Focus refers to special abilities unlocked after The Second Dream quest, revolving around unlocking a Tenno's true powers guided by the principles of the Five Great Tenno Schools.

Operators gain power and utility by unlocking abilities through the Focus system, granting them active and passive buffs that enhance their combat power and survival abilities.

CombatEdit

OperatorTranscendence

A Tenno performing Transcendence as the Warframe lies inert on the ground.

The Second Dream: TranscendenceEdit

On completing The Second Dream, players will be granted a Focus gauge which slowly charges for a full three minutes (180 seconds), after which if used performs the Transcendence ability (default: 5 ). This temporarily disables their Warframe to summon the Operator in a spectral form for 10 seconds, firing a powerful Void Beam while also activating any Warframe passives related to the Focus tree. While Transcendence is active, both the Operator and Warframe are invulnerable to damage from all sources. Once Transcendence ends, the Operator disappears and control is returned to the Warframe. Unlike the Void Beam used during physical Transference, the Void Beam used during Transcendence cannot damage Sentients in spectral form.

The War Within: TransferenceEdit

OperatorBeamFire

A Transferenced Operator using Void Beam.

Completing The War Within will replace Transcendence with physical Transference, allowing the players to play as the Operator themselves during missions, complete with their own set of maneuvers - though limited to running, jumping, sliding and zip-line running. Unlike Transcendence, Transference has no charge up, and the player's unbound and primary focus passives will be instantly activated from the start of a mission. While Transference is active, the Warframe becomes invulnerable to damage from all sources; however if the Warframe is currently using a channeled ability, or an ability that has an active duration, it will still receive 10% damage from all sources. Using Transference while outside of the Warframe will not only dismiss the Operator but also teleport the Warframe to the Operator's last location.

Operators have a base health of 100 along with a base armor of 25. If the Operator loses all of their health during a fight or if their Warframe's health is reduced to 30 or lower, they will be forcefully returned to their Warframe's last location without it teleporting. The Warframe is also inflicted with a debuff named Transference Static, which depletes all their shields while taking 10% of their current health as damage. This debuff lasts for 45 seconds and additional Static will not refresh the timer, only stacking on top of it, up to 4 times.

Operators have a base energy of 100 (with an increasingly faster regeneration speed which refills completely in 6 seconds), which is independent of the Warframe, consumed by the Operator's abilities and indicated by the focus gauge. It can also be replenished by Energy Orbs or certain Warframe powers that restore Energy. Because all of their abilities deal VoidTearIcon b Void damage, they are effective against all Sentient enemies as it nullifies any damage resistance built by the creatures. The powers available to the Operator are as follows:

  • Void Beam
    Command: Primary Fire (default LMB )
    The Operator's default power, the Void Beam is a continuous energy beam fired from their right hand that extends up to 20 meters, which deals roughly 2,000 VoidTearIcon b Void damage per second to the target with a 1-meter radius of its impact point, with a 1.5x multiplier on critical hits. Despite its sound the Void Beam is considered silent and will not alert enemies, however Void Mode will be deactivated while firing.
  • Void Blast
    Cost: 20 energy
    Command: Quick Melee (default E )
    The Void Blast is a cone-shaped area-of-effect attack which knockbacks all targets in 4-meter radius and deals 200 VoidTearIcon b Void damage, the damage diminishes with range. Void Blast can also disarm Kuva Guardians of their Kesheg.
  • Void Dash
    Cost: 25 energy
    Command: Bullet Jump, i.e. Jump (default Space ) while in Void Mode (default Ctrl )
    Void Dash is a mobility power that launches the Operator towards the direction of aim for 12 meters, which will damage and knockback any targets in range. Each enemy hit with Void Dash will restore 10 Void energy to the Operator. It can be used to bypass Corpus laser barriers or Grineer sensor bars. Void Dash can also disarm Kuva Guardians of their Kesheg.
  • Void Mode
    Cost: 5 energy/second
    Command: Crouch (default Ctrl )
    Void Mode turns the Operator incorporeal and thus invisible to enemies and various sensors (but not Corpus laser barriers or Grineer sensor bars), while also protecting them from any incoming damage, including fall damage and Status Effects.

The Quills, Amps and ArcanesEdit

After completing Saya's Vigil and The War Within, the Operator can initiate into a Syndicate called The Quills, who can grant the Operator various permanent upgrades. The Quills are located at the northeast most part of Cetus, through a stone door that can only be entered by the Operator using Transference to leave their Warframe behind.

The Quills' Representative will provide the Operator their first AmpMote Amp, a specialized weapon to enhance their Void Beam while also creating a separate "ammo" gauge for them, allowing them to execute this ability without exhausting their other powers. It can be improved even further by gilding it and enhancing it with Virtuos Arcanes, both of which are provided by The Quills. Further Amps can also be constructed later by assembling different parts from the same syndicate.

The Operator's base health of 100 is also increased to 250 upon initiation, and other attributes such as armor or sprint can be enhanced with Magus Arcanes which can be acquired from The Quills as well. Additionally, the Operator will also able to perform a slide maneuver to help them dodge incoming attacks (default: LShift  while running), although they cannot slide while in Void Mode.

UmbraEdit

During the penultimate of The Sacrifice, the Excalibur Umbra Warframe is rewarded. Unlike other Warframes, Umbra possesses sentience, allowing it to fight on its own in a similar manner to a Specter when not piloted by the Operator. However, Umbra can be harmed and takes full damage from any source, and will stop moving altogether if it loses all its health.

CustomizationEdit

Character CreationEdit

OperatorCustomization4

The Operator customization menu.

Players can customize the appearance of their Operator under the Customize Tenno button accessible at the bottom right of the Focus Menu screen, or through Customize Tenno under the Operator option under Settings.

There is no option to change the Operator's gender, but a male or female voice and body shape can be selected independently from each other through the "Face" and "Voice" options.

The following options are available for customization in the Customization menu:

View Operator Customization List
  • HEAD options:
    • Face and Secondary Face - Customize the Tenno's head and face shape. Primary face defines which face-texture is being used, secondary face only influences geometry via face blend.

CosmeticsEdit

The Operator can be customized with various cosmetic appearance options under the Transference Suit section. The headgear and torso options on these cosmetic items, including the default Zariman suit, can be improved with Magus Arcanes that grant enhancements to Operator survivability.

Transference SuitsEdit

ArmorsEdit

Despite their name, these Operator Armors are purely cosmetic. All of them can be bought through bundles on the Market.
The Ceno, Vahd, Hazmat, Smelter, Outrider and Vent Rat armors can also be built from component blueprints sold by The Quills and Vox Solaris Syndicate Vendors.

MasksEdit

Nakak in Cetus sells masks that the Operator can equip as headgear. Her wares and their prices cycle daily, but it is possible to find her selling masks resembling Excalibur, Mag, Volt, and Trinity, as well as a generic Grineer mask. After reaching the rank of Observer with The Quills, Nakak can be asked about "Mask?" and will offer a mask that doubles as the trigger for the Mask of the Revenant quest.

These masks can be recolored independently from the outfit worn on the Operator's body, and will take their colors from the "Markings" and "Facial Accessories" sections of the Operator's Features customization panel.

Ki'Teer AccessoriesEdit

These can be bought from Baro Ki'Teer when they are in stock.

Health CalculationEdit

Warframe0097

Operator Health with Vazarin and Magus Vigor

Operator Health can be increased with MagusVigor64x Magus Vigor and with Vazarin Focus school's Enduring Tides. The formula to calculate operator health is:

HP = (Base HP + Magus Vigor) × (1 + Enduring Tides bonus)

Example: With a maxed MagusVigor64x Magus Vigor, if combined with the Vazarin Focus school's rank 3 or rank 4 Enduring Tides ability +150% bonus results in:

HP = (250 + 200) × (1 + 1.5) = 1,125

NotesEdit

  • Mods of any kind equipped on a Warframe or its weapons do not affect the Operator in any way.
  • Operators can use certain Gear items, which do not share a cooldown with a Warframe.
  • Any active Warframe abilities will persist while in Operator form.
  • Players can switch to their Operators while inside the Orbiter and interact with all segments inside.
  • Operators are capable of Hacking, opening lockers, reviving allies, picking up items and Mods on the ground, and picking up and carrying solid pickups like Datamasses and Power Cells, which will be dropped upon switching.
    • They can also pick up Health and Energy pickups, which will restore the Operator's health and Void energy respectively, but they cannot pick up Affinity pickups.
    • If Void Mode is activated before Hacking, opening lockers, or reviving allies has begun, the Operator will remain in Void Mode for its duration, unless they run out of energy to maintain it. This allows for the Operator to rescue would-be doomed allies in otherwise lethal situations, or hack things that would be too dangerous to hack in their Warframe.
  • Operators can gain energy from the Arboretum room in the Orokin Moon tileset.
  • The Operator's health does not recover by going in and out of Transference, they retain whatever amount of Health they had before returning to their Warframe. Operators can be healed by various sources, including their own Focus passives, Health Orbs or allied Warframe powers (this is not the case for Warrior Mode however.)
  • The effects of Volt's Electric Shield apply to Void Beam.
  • The Operator cannot be summoned in a Relay, but can be summoned in a Dojo, in Cetus or Fortuna .
    • Operators also cannot be summoned in the Conclave.
  • Operators can use the majority of Emotes, although the four acrobatic Nartas cannot be used.
    • Operator can use Handshake-emote to interact with another operator, but not with a warframe. The area in which the emote will 'lock on' to another operator is also far smaller than it is with two warframes.
  • Companions and Syndicate Operatives will not follow the Operator, and will instead stay behind with the Warframe. They will still remain active however, and will stand their ground and use abilities.
    • However, Specters, Rescue Targets and Operatives, and Eidolon Lures that have been deployed and hacked by the Operator will follow them.
  • Syndicate sigils equipped on the Operator will not earn Standing from the associated syndicate; the sigil is purely aesthetic.
  • Operators are able to bypass Corpus Laser Barriers and Sensor Bars using Void Dash, allowing them to stealth through Spy vaults.
  • The Operator has their own Stealth Affinity Bonus counter, which is independent of the Warframe's own Stealth Affinity counter. This counter is maintained and will continue to count down even when the Operator returns to the Warframe.
  • Operator's fall damage deals Impact b Impact damage.
  • Replaying The Second Dream quest will disable the player's ability to perform Transference when playing any mission in the quest. Players will be given access to Transcendence during the quest however.
  • While in Operator mode, Sentinels and Companions will continue to attack enemies and take damage.
    • Sentinels hover above the Warframe instead of following the Operator, making them vulnerable to damage.

TipsEdit

  • The Operator can be used as a complementary stealth kit for Warframes without stealth capabilities, as Void Mode allows them to remain undetected from enemy vision, Laser Barriers, Sensor Bars and other security apparatuses.
    • Additionally, all of the Operator's Void powers are silent, making them ideal for performing stealthy actions.
    • Note that your Warframe will still draw aggro if seen.
    • However, passing through Grineer and Corpus energy defenses like Sensor Bars and Laser Barriers in Spy Data Vaults will still activate the Vault's alarms.
  • Under Void Mode, it is possible to capture a target, hack a console, and revive an ally, while remaining invulnerable from all sources of damage including auras and Status Effects.
  • The Operator experiences reduced gravity while Void Mode is active and can be used to negate any fall damage they experience.
  • Void Beam can destroy Magnetic anomalies in Reactor Sabotage missions, though destroying it will emit Electricity b Electricity damage in a large radius, potentially dealing damage to the Operator.
  • Void Dash can be chained in quick succession allowing the Operator to traverse a significant vertical distance.
  • With Mind Sprint upgrade from Naramon focus school and Void Flow upgrade from Zenurik focus school, the Operator can Void Dash 8 times in a row(if no actives are equipped that would drain extra energy per second), traveling a significant distance with each dash. This makes the Operator a powerful mobility tool for traversing large open spaces.
  • The Operator counts as a separate entity from the Warframe for the purposes of mechanics like pressure plates. This can be used for various situations requiring a player to hold two different locations at once, such as the Collaboration Test on the Orokin Moon.
    • While the Operator can capture Interception points, their inactive Warframe will not.
  • The damage resistance gained by a Warframe during Transference can be used to survive damage that would otherwise be fatal, such as Toxin status effects.
  • Void Blast can be used to temporarily incapacitate shielded enemies such as Shield Lancers or knock enemies off Ramparts from the front, with the range in which you can do so increased by Unairu's Basilisk Gaze.
  • The Operator's Shwaak Prism Amp part can be used to quickly dispel Arctic Eximus Unit Ice Bubbles, enemy shields, or even Nullifier Crewman weak spots if you can aim it well thanks to the Shwaak's high innate Impact b Impact damage.
  • The Operator's brief second period of invulnerability can be used to body block otherwise fatal Bombard rocket damage if timed correctly.

TriviaEdit

  • In Digital Extremes's script of The War Within, they refer their own Operator used for story purposes as Mara.
  • The term Operator was first used by Ordis to refer to the Tenno during the events of the Vor's Prize quest, which was first introduced in Update 14.0.
  • The Transference ability appears to extend beyond controlling Warframes, as during The War Within it is once used to possess an Orokin creature known as the Ravenous Maw.
  • Before Update 22.0, the Operator was capable of using Ground Finishers on downed enemies with their fists by using Quick Melee (default E ) while standing over and aiming at the target. This action requires significant amounts of Void energy to perform however, otherwise the Operator will simply use Void Blast instead.
  • During Infested mission the Operator may be heard saying "We are immune to the Infestation, but they're still trying to kill us." This suggests the Tenno are directly immune to the Infestation, though it is unknown how or why. However, the Operator may also be referring to immunity by proxy, as the Warframes, being already infested, are immune to Infestation.

BugsEdit

  • Removing parts of the Zariman Suit may sometimes not update correctly after changing color options on the Operator.
  • A bug may happen on Grineer Sealab tilesets where the Warframe will float in the air.
  • In some situations, switching between the Operator and the Warframe may be erratic position-wise, including recalling older position and glitching the player out of the map. This occurs most often when attempting to switch forms while inside an extraction zone or falling into out-of-bounds pits.
  • There is a rendering bug in the Orbiter that that allows players to see inside the Warframe when walking through it as the Operator.
  • Placing a Warframe within the interaction proximity of consoles interferes with using them by the Operator (the action prompt may not show up at some positions) until the Warframe is relocated.
  • Switching to Operator and back or using void dash counts towards the "Exercising Power" Challenge Reward (Use your first ability 5 times).
  • In a high-latency match, it is possible to switch to the Operator just before their Warframe is downed, effectively allowing the player to revive their own Warframe.
  • If a player experiences an out-of-bounds glitch with their Warframe while in Operator form during a mission and is killed afterwards, the player will be stuck in Operator form after reviving. In this state, the Operator cannot be killed despite retaining the ability to receive incoming damage.
  • While Void Beam will activate the effect counters of conditional Rifle mods like Argon Scope when their conditions are met, the mod's effects will not actually apply to the Void Beam, conferring no benefit.
  • When switching to the operator in The Jordas Precept after killing the Juggernaut Behemoth and before the cutscene, the player will be sucked into space without their Warframe. The player will not be able to move until they switch back to their Warframe, and will then be stuck inside the infested corpus ship for the remainder of the mission.
  • When in void mode, the physical hitbox of the Cryopod does not apply, making it possible to walk through. When walking in and leaving the void mode, the Operator is stuck inside the Cryopod. Entering the void mode again makes it possible to walk out again.
  • During The War Within quest, beginning Return To The Mountain Pass: Earth as Operator instead of the Warframe will cause the game to break. This bug will persist, even if the player attempts to restart the game. It cannot be fixed unless the player reinstalls the game.

  • You can now double tap “shift” to perform a slide as the Operator.
