Installing an Orokin Catalyst[edit | edit source]
To install an Orokin Catalyst on a weapon, go to your Arsenal, and select Upgrade to open the Mod screen.
From there, click the Actions button located in the bottom right, just below your mod list. Select the Upgrade panel.
How it works[edit | edit source]
An applied Orokin Catalyst will double the mod capacity of a weapon. This increases the total power that can be consumed by mods, but not the number of mod slots. A rank 1 weapon with a Catalyst installed will have a capacity of 2, which will increase to 60 at rank 30. Unlike Forma, Catalysts can only be applied to a weapon once.
It does not matter when the catalyst is installed; the capacity of a weapon with a Catalyst installed will always be double its rank.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Orokin Catalysts are often referred to by players as 'blue potatoes' (as opposed to Orokin Reactors, called 'golden potatoes'), or in some cases, simply 'potatoes'. This originated from a short animation called "War friends" on YouTube; this was later tweeted by the Warframe Twitter and referenced by the Devs.
- Weapons bought with platinum from the Market come pre-installed with a Catalyst and their own weapon slot.
- Once applied to a weapon, it cannot be taken off to use on another weapon.
- Orokin Catalysts/Reactors are not removed after applying a Forma.
