Strain Fever is a set mod that grants Helminth Chargers additional damage per Cyst.

When equipped with other Strain set mods, the Helminth will grow up to 2/4/6/8 Cysts over 24s, which then erupt, spawning Maggots that seek out and attack enemies.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When maximum amount of cysts are active provided all set mods are used, provides +240% damage on the helminth charger.
  • Strain Fever stacks additively with Mod TT 20px.pngMaul resulting in a 570% damage increase with the maximum effect from the cysts.
  • As the Helminth Charger gains more cysts with Strain Fever equipped, it will also grow larger. Once the Helminth Charger has 8 active cysts provided all set mods are equipped, it becomes taller than any Warframe.
