Albrecht Entrati designed Qorvex to protect a Chosen Operator from the unique hazards of his lab. A Crucible Core gives Qorvex high survivability as he provides crowd control.

Release Date: December 13th, 2023

Crucible reactor overload, containment breach imminent. Erect industrial pylons of radioactive blight to cement our TennoIcon Tenno presence in the nuclear warzone, then eradicate all hostile forces entrenched by collapsed concrete. Disintegrate the irradiated lifeforms via concentrated emission from the Brutalist Golem, Qorvex. Perfect this unstable machine of Master EntratiIcon Entrati's design, in defense against unspeakable eldritch horrors festering from his labyrinthine laboratories below...

Tenno, the Warframe Qorvex was designed by my Albrecht's own hand, to protect the chosen Operator from the hazards of his laboratory. This design is yours by right.

Qorvex is a hulking mass of concrete arranged around a radioactive Crucible Core. Designed and created by Albrecht Entrati himself, he serves as a bulwark against the terrifying and eldritch forces that now invade his labs. Qorvex now serves as a new guardian to the Tenno.



  • Qorvex is the 55th unique Warframe to be released.
  • Qorvex was first mentioned in Devstream 174 during the upcoming features checklist showcase for Whispers in the Walls. His in-game model, abilities, alt helmet, and signature archgun were revealed in Devstream 175.
  • Qorvex is the first Warframe whose name begins with the letter "Q". As of his announcement, the only letter remaining with a related Warframe, is 'U'.
    • The name Qorvex could be a portmanteau of the words core and vex. In nuclear engineering, core is a term for "the inner part of a nuclear reactor where nuclear reactions takes place", which refers to Qorvex's Crucible Core contained by his innumerable concrete plating. Vex is a verb for "to annoy or irritate" or "to cause mental distress", which implies the confusion afflicting his foes by the DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation status effect.
  • Concrete is often used in the containment of radioactive material due to it being dense enough to absorb most forms of ionizing radiation, and cheap enough to be used in vast quantities. The penetrating nature of radiation is alluded to in Qorvex's Passive granting additional Punch Through to any of his guns. This may also be a reference to the use of depleted uranium in the manufacture of armor-piercing rounds.
  • Some of Qorvex' abilities give of the signature clicking sound of a Geiger counter, an instrument used for detection ionizing radiation.
  • ChyrinkaPillar130xWhite Chyrinka Pillar is derived from Cherenkov radiation, a form of energy emitted when the charged particles moving at speeds faster than that of light in a specific medium.
  • DisometricGuard130xWhite Disometric Guard is derived from dosimetry, the measurement and study of ionizing radiation as absorbed by the human body.
  • A week prior to Devstream 175, Creative Director Rebecca Ford and Warframe's official Twitter teased Qorvex's descriptive appearance and his official default colors, encouraging players to guess and draw his look.[1][2]
  • The development process on Qorvex spanned across 2023 according to Rebecca and Pablo. His brutalist concrete appearance drew heavy inspiration from the stone-like Murmur faction also introduced with him, and required several iterations from artist Mike "Mynki" Brennan.
    • Qorvex's concrete armor plating are separate slabs that pulsate in a breathing-like pattern during his idle Animation Sets. This animation affects various body parts, such as his helmet, chest, shoulders and arms, codpiece, thighs and legs.
    • When Qorvex was first announced, his passive was originally going to grant bonus DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation damage to all weapons he has equipped.
  • He is the ninth Warframe after LimboIcon272 Limbo, HildrynIcon272 Hildryn, WispIcon272 Wisp, TitaniaPrimeIcon272 Titania Prime, ProteaIcon272 Protea, XakuIcon272 Xaku and SevagothIcon272 Sevagoth, and GyreIcon272 Gyre with a unique dodge roll animation, where Qorvex slides in a bashing posture as the sound of moving stone plays.
    • Similar to StyanaxIcon272 Styanax's armor clanking footsteps, Qorvex's footsteps emit stone friction noise.
  • Qorvex's physical design and idle animations appear to be modeled after gorillas.

Hotfix 35.5.6 (2024-04-10)

Line Of Sight (Los) Improvements

As announced last week, we have revisited LoS checks on other Warframes to bring them in line with the new and improved version of Dante’s LoS added in Hotfix 35.5.4.

To reiterate, there are now two variations of LoS checking:

  1. The first type of check sees if any part of the enemy has been drawn on the screen, so that any part of an enemy, big or small, is considered visible/eligible to pass the LoS check.
  2. The second type of check is for enemies that are not on screen. We now check for LoS to the enemy's head, torso, and feet instead of only to their body which will increase reliability there as well.

For Abilities that hit enemies in a full circle around you, both checks are used: Once to evaluate enemies that you can see and then a second sweep to check targets to the sides and behind you that aren't visible.

The following Warframe abilities have received the aforementioned improvements:

  • Qorvex’s Chyrinka Pillar (Raycast Checks from top and center of pillar)

The above changes also tangentially fixes the issue of low FOV preventing LoS checks from occurring.

Hotfix 35.5.3 (2024-04-04)

  • Fixed Qorvex losing Disometric Guard stacks every 5 seconds by Status Effect procs caused by the game thinking that he was being inflicted by a slowing Status.

Update 35.5 (2024-03-27)

  • Fixed Status Effects negated by Qorvex’s Disometric Guard still causing the Riven Challenges with the “without getting afflicted by a Status Effect” condition to fail.
  • Fixed being unable to catch Servofish with Qorvex using the Stunna and Shockprod Fishing Spears.
  • Fixed “Catch X fish without missing a throw” Riven challenges resetting after each throw if attempted with Qorvex.
  • Fixed Qorvex Specter not rotating to face enemies when casting Crucible Blast.
  • Fixed offset issues with the Gillychap Shoulder Plate on several Warframes (notably Qorvex).
  • Fixed Qorvex’s Agile/Noble Animation set causing left hand to clip into Rifle.
  • Fixed some of Qorvex’s dash animations being cut short when using Amalgam Barrel Diffusion.
  • Fixed a typo in one of Qorvex’s ability tips.

Hotfix 35.1.2 (2024-02-28)

  • Fixed physics getting whacky after using Qorvex’s Chyrinka Pillar to dive into a Sanctuary Onslaught portal or to approach the closed Fortuna elevator doors in the Orb Vallis.

Hotfix 35.0.3 (2023-12-18)

  • Fixed various levels of function loss when casting Qorvex’s Chyrinka Pillar or Containment Wall in a nullifier field.
  • Fixed Qorvex’s Disometric Guard not scaling with rank.
    • With this change, we did not increase the Ability’s stats at Rank 30, instead we have reduced the stats at lower ranks to match scaling with other Warframe Abilities.
