  • Thermite Rounds is additive with similar mods. For example, a CorpusSniperRifle Snipetron with a max rank Thermite Rounds and Mod TT 20pxRifle Aptitude will have a 20% × (1 + 60% + 15%) = 35% status chance.
  • This mod can be combined with Mod TT 20pxHigh Voltage, Mod TT 20pxRime Rounds and Mod TT 20pxMalignant Force to achieve a combined status chance bonus of 240%. With Mod TT 20pxRifle Aptitude and Mod TT 20pxHammer Shot, this bonus can be increased to 295%, nearly quadrupling the weapon's status chance.


  • Unlike the previous Cicero and Tethra mod sets that depict Warframes already available at the time of the event, the cards from Operation Breeding Grounds depicted  MirageIcon272 Mirage, a Warframe that at the time was yet to be revealed or released.
  • Thermite is a pyrotechnic composition of metal powder and metal oxide. The intense heat it generates when ignited is used to cut through or weld together metal objects for civil or military purposes, such as welding together copper wires for electrical connections.
