For the Sword Stance, see Vengeful Revenant.

Rise from the broken remains of the Eidolon to seduce an army of zealous thralls.

This is Revenant, the returned - the condemned. Harnessing the essence of Eidolon and warrior alike, he mystifies and obliterates his foes.

Revenant serves last rites for the souls he leaves on fire, without a plea for mercy.

Once the warden of the plains, tasked with protecting the Unum's tower and striking down the ghostly Eidolon forms that rose from the depths every night. Night after night, he cut them down. Not allowing them to take form. Then one night, he disappeared, lost… forever.

Release Date: August 24th, 2018

Ravaged by Sentient energy, wreathed with eldritch Eidolon essence, the blighted sovereign Revenant subjugates foes through his affliction. Bestow his sacrificial legion haunted dreams, reap unseen, and spill their lifeblood upon the desolate scorched earth. Revenant was resurrected in Update 23.5 (2018-08-24).


Revenant's main blueprint is awarded upon completion of the Mask of the Revenant quest, which is unlocked after reaching the rank of "Observer" with The Quills.

Revenant's component blueprints are acquired from Bounties in the Plains of Eidolon. Building at least two different components is required to advance through quest.

Additional main blueprints can be bought from Cephalon Simaris for ReputationBlackx64.png 50,000.

“You're not supposed to be in here! You're going to ruin the surprise!”
The following article/section contains spoilers. Please complete Mask of the Revenant quest before proceeding.
Main article: Mask of the Revenant

Why do I remember this? The land here, killing hot, full of strangeness. This is where Gara vanquished the Sentient! Where its essence fell into the ground, trapped in some unworldly between. It wanted out. At moon rise its ghostly tendrils would emerge, seeking form, seeking... return... And this... this was the warden... a Warframe. I can see it, like a dream repeating... The tendril emerging night after night, and the warden, night after night, cutting it down... until the warden himself was lost. How?

Following Gara's sacrifice over the Eidolon, at the very site of her decisive battle which the Ostrons now call Gara Toht Lake, a Warframe known solely as the Warden would arrive to drive away the Sentient as it emerged night after night. This trial would continue until one fateful evening, where the Warden foolishly tried to make contact with the Sentient and was overwhelmed. Discovering that the Sentient was using him as a means to reform itself, the Warden cast himself into the lake to seal it. The time spent as an "anchor" to the Sentient would infuse the Warden with its eldritch energies, becoming "the Lost One".

In the present day, Nakak receives a strange mask, the Mask of the Lost One, from Onkko. She sells it to the Tenno, instructing them to wear it in the Plains of Eidolon at nighttime. There, they see a large spectral silhouette of an Eidolon; meanwhile, Nakak receives a vision from the Unum, explaining the story of the Warden. After completing the story, the Warden, now transformed into the Revenant that serves as a "mask" for the Eidolon, emerges but is driven back, leaving behind its own blueprint. Having rebuilt the Lost One, Nakak claims the Warframe that had been infused with the powers of the Eidolon will be needed to combat a new threat imposed by the Sentient.


  • If Revenant wields his signature weapons:
    • RevenantShotgun.png Phantasma: Magazine size is increased by 4 rounds, for a total of 15 rounds.
    • Tatsu.png Tatsu: Projectile charge cap is increased to 9.
  • Revenant has the second highest base shields out of all Warframes in the game, behind HildrynIcon272.png Hildryn: 225 at rank 0 and 675 at rank 30.
    • When taking overshields into consideration, Revenant is the Warframe with third highest total shield value, behind Hildryn and HarrowIcon272.png Harrow.
  • Revenant is immune to the DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic proc from contacting water during the night in the Plains of Eidolon.


  • Revenant was revealed in Devstream 112.
  • Revenant's codename during development was Vlad, likely named after Vlad the Impaler who, in 1897, Irish writer Bram Stoker based the famous vampire "Count Dracula" off of. As described by Stoker, Count Dracula was an undead warlock that fed on human blood.
  • A revenant is an undead being that retains some purpose after its reanimation, usually to seek out and get revenge upon those who wronged it in life.
  • To enthrall somebody means to make one subservient.
  • The name MesmerSkin130xDark.png Mesmer Skin may be based on Franz Mesmer, a German doctor who came up with the theory of Animal Magnetism.
  • To reave means to deprive (a person) of something through theft or violence.
  • DanseMacabre130xDark.png Danse Macabre may be based on Danse Macabre, French for "Dance of Death", a late-medieval allegory of the universality of death.
  • When Revenant's Danse Macabre is discussed in his Warframe Profile, the Lotus says "Bewitch your enemies in the moonlight, Tenno." This is a lyric from the song Dance Macabre by the Swedish heavy rock band Ghost.
  • Revenant's fourth ability was originally a mass crowd control area of effect that put enemies to sleep.
  • Fitting with Revenant's Eidolon theme, Danse Macabre's rotating lasers is derived from an attack used by the Eidolon Gantulyst.
  • Revenant, alongside his signature shotgun, RevenantShotgun.png Phantasma, are the first Warframe and weapon to require Sentient Cores to craft.
  • After TennoCon 2018, Revenant's abilities underwent changes to include more lasers and lights to emphasize the Eidolon theme.
  • Revenant is the 36th Warframe to be released (excluding Primed and Umbra variants).
  • Revenant is the second Warframe whose component blueprints are acquired from Bounties, first being GaraIcon272.png Gara.
  • Revenant was originally tasked as a warden by the Unum to prevent the fallen Eidolon from coming back, implying that he was active after the Sentient War on Earth, at the very least. Whether he had directly participated in the War or not is unknown.
    • Revenant is the sixth known frame to be active before and/or during the fall of the Orokin Empire, after MirageIcon272.png Mirage, InarosIcon272.png Inaros, TitaniaIcon272.png Titania, HarrowIcon272.png Harrow, and GaraIcon272.png Gara.
  • Revenant is called "The Lost One" by Nakak and, by suggestion, the Unum, due to the fact that he was lost to the abyss, where Eidolon was banished to.
  • Unlike most of the Warframes, Revenant's signature melee weapon was not released simultaneously with him. Digital Extremes decided to withhold and release it later alongside Melee 3.0.
    • His signature Two-Handed Nikana, Tatsu.png Tatsu, was released with Update 24.4 (2019-03-08).


  • While MesmerSkin130xDark.png Mesmer Skin is active, if the operator exits then enters Revenant, the number of remaining charges will not be displayed. However, the charges will work normally and the number will reappear after being attacked.
  • While DanseMacabre130xDark.png Danse Macabre is active, if the player is airborne and would usually automatically mantle a ledge, the player will not mantle that ledge and will maintain free movement, but will no longer be able to use abilities or grab pickups. Moreover, once the player runs out of energy, they will be teleported to the ledge that would have usually been mantled.
  • Enthralled enemies under the effect of ValkyrIcon272.png Valkyr's Warcry130xDark.png Warcry will still be affected by Warcry130xDark.png Warcry's effect of slowing down enemies.

Edit Tab


Harnessing the essence of Eidolons, RevenantIcon272.png Revenant is immune to the DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic night waters of the Plains of Eidolon.

Additionally, when his Shield depletes, Revenant emits a 100 damage radial blast that knocks down enemies within 7.5m.

Update 30.7 (2021-09-08)

  • Revenant's Danse Macabre ability now deals finisher damage against inanimate objects instead of adopting a damage type based on the target. It still does adaptive damage and applies adaptive status effects against enemies.
    • Prior to this change, Danse Macabre was allowing Revenant to solve Operator-required puzzles, which is clearly not intended.
  • Fixed an issue where if you bullet jump with Revenant and then cast Danse Macabre his head would appear broken.

Hotfix 30.0.1 (2021-04-13)

  • Fixed Danse Macabre loop sound staying active when client aborts mission while power is active. Also fixed Danse Macabre end sound playing when entering the menu while power is active, it wont be triggered now.

Hotfix 29.5.7 (2020-12-10)

  • Fixed inability to use/cancel any abilities or use Operator after casting Revenant’s Danse Macabre and getting knocked down or attempting to ledge grab during its animation.

Update 29.5 (2020-11-19)

Hotfix 29.0.7 (2020-09-03)

  • Fixed a Revenant functionality loss if Reave is cast on an enemy who is both Enthralled and Blood Altared.
  • Fixed cases of Revenant’s Reave hitting ragdolled enemies multiple times in rapid succession, potentially insta-killing them.

Update 29.0 (2020-08-25)

  • Fixed script error related to Revenant’s Danse Macabre.

Update 28.3 (2020-08-12)

Update 28.1 (2020-07-08)

  • Fixed Enemies that are converted by Revenant's Enthrall energy pillar not appearing to have the Enthralled visuals around their head despite being friendly/affected.

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)

  • You can now sell your duplicate Revenant Blueprints for 2500 Credits from your Inventory.

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

  • Armor Change:
    • Revenant: 105 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 25.7.7 (2019-09-26)

  • Revenant's Reave ability is now an upper body animation only; alleviating momentum cancelling lower body animations.

Update 25.7 (2019-08-29)

Update 25.5 (2019-07-31)

  • Fixed Armored enemies affected by Revenant's Danse Macabre continuing to take Corrosive Damage after the Armor has gone, resulting in less damage because Flesh is stronger to Corrosive than Armor is.
  • Fixed Revenant's Danse Macabre doing Corrosive Damage to Infested.
  • Fixed not being able to perform finishers on blinded enemies from Revenant's Enthrall that are temporary allies (mind control, etc).

  • The Tatsu Soul Swarm (Revenant) projectiles now have a lifetime of 5 seconds.
  • Fixed Secondary Energy colors not applying to certain things (Revenant's Helmet beard, etc).

Update 24.6 (2019-04-04)

  • Having a ‘signature’ weapon now actually benefits you!
    • Phantasma: Has 15 magazine when wielded by Revenant.
    • Tatsu: Charge cap is 9 when wielded by Revenant.

Update 24.5 (2019-03-14)

  • Fixed Revenant Reave being able to give a Mesmer Skin charge to Operators.

  • Fixed "melee with fire weapon input" causing Revenant's Danse Macabre to be unboostable when a Melee weapon is equipped.

Update 24.4 (2019-03-08)

  • The homing energy projectiles that Enthrall pillars emit now have a chance to Enthrall enemies while inflicting damage if there is room in the Enthrall cap. This allows Enthrall to spread more organically, and as the cap is reached, damage continues on other targets.

  • Fixed Mesmer Skin consuming multiple charges when getting hit multiple times in the same frame from the same enemy (e.g. a projectile that hits you and explodes).

Hotfix 23.10.4 (2018-10-16)

  • Revenant's Reave now follows the direction of your reticle as opposed to always in a straight line. This allows you to steer it freely.

  • Fixed a script error when casting Revenant's Mesmer Skin ability.

  • Fixed the Revenant Warframe Blueprint not appearing in the Codex as a reward under any Eidolon variant.

Revenant Ability Changes

We have a big batch of changes to Revenant based on constructive player feedback. Specifics per ability follow below, but a big thanks to everyone who took the time to login, play, and visit a space (forums or otherwise) to give their thoughts. It's crucial to the iteration process. Thank you!


THRALLS: We have made changes to have Thralls have more value in life AND death - just as Revenant did. The general rule Thralls will follow is they provide CC in Life, Damage in Death. The goal is simply to have an easy supply of Thralls to make use of in both Life and Death.

Currently Enthrall has the following uses:

You can get up to 7 enemies Crowd Controlled - they won't attack you or allies and will draw Aggro from AI. It spreads / is transferred - the Enthralled state is contagious! You can Reave Thralls for greater scaling Health and Shield Leeching. If Thralls are killed by Danse Macabre, overshield drops are created.

It creates a damaging pillar, and that's it. Not useful enough in death at all!


  • We've added the following with this update:
  • While active, the pillar creates homing projectiles similar to the Vomvalyst attacks and Revenant's Signature weapon, the Phantasma!
  • The pillars can now be exploded to output their damage radially if hit by Danse Macabre.

On the development build before release, Mesmer Skin was recastable but we removed this due to balance concerns. But, our gut reaction was right and thanks to your feedback we've changed it back to how it was and you can now recast Mesmer Skin to recharge it!

  • Lowered Energy cost to 50.
  • Revenant is now fully immune to damage while Reaving - it's meant to be a life-saver!
  • When Reaving Thralls with Mesmer Skin active, it restores a charge.
  • When Reaving Allies with Mesmer Skin active, it adds the protective energy to your allies who happen to be in range. A small protective bonus!
  • When REAVE is cast while in DANSE MACABRE, Energy cost lowered to 25. This allows for quicker, risk-free placement of Revenant for tactical maneuvering.
  • The Direction of Reave now follows last Reticle aim point which makes casting more responsive to intent.
Revenant Fixes
  • Fixed Revenant’s Reave using the wrong value (Health) for Shield gain.
  • Fixed inability to damage Revenant’s Enthralled enemies with the Arca Plasmor.
  • Fixed Revenant’s Enthralled enemies still attempting to hack terminals during Interception missions.
  • Fixed Gara’s Mass Vitrify blocking Revenant’s Danse Macabre lasers.
  • Fixed Revenant’s Danse Macabre and Khora's Strangledome names being in ALL CAPS.

Update 23.6 (2018-08-30)

Revenant Fixes & Changes
  • Enthrall cap for thralled enemies increased from 4 to 7.
    • Developer Note: We listened to the feedback that 4 was too few, so we’ve buffed the number to match Nekros’ max Shadows.
  • Danse Macabre energy cost increased from 12.5 to 20 energy per second.
    • Developer Note: In keeping with changes we've made to Warframes in the past to deter from the "set it and forget" approach, we have increased the energy per second on Danse Macabre. We are hoping that with Enthrall's cap increase you can benefit from more overshield pickups with Danse Macabre. We’re always looking to iterate on your feedback, please leave yours in the dedicated Revenant feedback megathread!
  • Reave now looks more like the Vomvalyst charge.
  • Added FX and sound when Mesmer ends.
  • Fixed Danse Macabre showing 0 energy/second in abilities screen.
  • Fixed Danse Macabre becoming stuck while sliding.
  • Fixed script error if you cast Revenant's Enthrall on a roller or other similar enemy.
  • Fixed Mesmer not reflecting Status effects.
  • If you have Revenant building in your Foundry, the final stage of The Mask of the Lost One quest will now progress, instead of requiring you to claim the completed Warframe.
    • Developer Note: For those of you who offered feedback about the guidance within the miniquest, we are working on improving the player experience. This will take a little time, but thank you to everyone who offered constructive criticism on our first foray into this miniquest. In the meantime, you can read our step-by-step guide in the first spoiler here: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1001509-mask-of-the-revenant-update-2350/
  • Fixed a case of obtaining Revenant blueprint without obtaining final Fragment.

Update 23.5 (2018-08-24)

  • Introduced.
