Strain Consume is a Warframe set mod that restores a small portion of health for every maggot that dies within 5 meters of the Warframe.

When equipped with other Strain set mods, the Helminth will grow up to 2/4/6/8 cysts over 6/12/18/24 seconds that erupt every twenty-five seconds, spawning Maggots that seek out and attack enemies.


Rank Range Health Restore Cost
0 5m 1% 2
1 5m 2% 3
2 5m 3% 4
3 5m 4% 5


  • As Strain Consume's health restoration is percentage-based, Warframes with high Health pools (such as InarosIcon272 Inaros) will see a greater benefit from this mod.
  • Assuming all Strain Mods are fully ranked and equipped, a Warframe can recover up to 48% of their maximum health should the maggots die within range.
