Electricity flows through Volt. His attacks deal high damage. Enemies will be shocked.

This is Volt, a versatile warrior.

Volt's arsenal is powerful and electrifying. Handle with care, Tenno.

Release Date: October 25th, 2012

Volt has the power to wield and bend electricity. He is highly versatile, armed with powerful abilities that can damage enemies, provide cover and complement the ranged and melee combat of his cell. The electrical nature of his abilities make him highly effective against the Corpus, with their robots in particular. He is one of three starter options for new players.

Acquisition

Volt is one of the three starter Warframes, alongside ExcaliburIcon272 Excalibur and MagIcon272 Mag, during Awakening.

Volt's blueprints can be researched from the Tenno Lab in the dojo.

Volt can also be bought complete from Teshin for ReputationLarge 60,000 once players have achieved Typhoon rank in the Conclave.

Trivia

  • The volt is a measure of electrical potential, a type of potential energy that could be released if an electrical current is allowed to flow, hence Volt's electrical essence.
  • During closed beta, Overload was notoriously overpowered as a result of a bug that would allow the lightning to daisy-chain throughout a level, killing any enemy that had spawned.
  • Before Update 7 Volt was one of the 3 initial starter Frames. He was replaced by MagIcon272 Mag due to a desire of the developers to have a female starter. Volt then replaced LokiIcon272 Loki as a starting Warframe in Update 14.
  • Volt has had three drop changes since Update 11; prior to Update 11 his components dropped from the J3-Golem on Jupiter. After The Hunt For Alad V, his components were moved to Survival mission rewards, making him the second Warframe obtainable through regular mission rewards (the first was BansheeIcon272 Banshee). Update 12 moved Volt and Banshee to the Tenno Research Labs, and the both of them have remained there since.
  • The rings on Volt's arms are considered customizable armor parts and will be removed if any other arm plates are used.
  • Volt's default energy color appears as deep orange-yellow on his body, but the color of any electricity he emits is a darker blue/purple.
  • The back of Volt's tunic stretches when Volt's legs move apart.
  • Volt is the first Warframe to receive 5 Augment Mods, 2 of them being Conclave exclusive.
  • Volt's Neuroptics is a requisite ingredient for ChromaIcon272 Chroma.

  • Baro Ki'Teer would sometimes bring relics containing Volt Prime and Odonata Prime.
  • Volt Prime, alongside Odonata Prime, was again available from April 30, 2019 to July 2nd 2019.
  • Volt Prime was available from Prime Resurgence which ran from November 16, 2021 to January 25, 2022.

Notes

  • Volt Prime, compared to VoltIcon272 Volt:
    • Higher Armor (135 vs. 105)
    • Higher Energy (200/300 vs. 100/150)
    • Higher Starting Energy (125 vs. 50)
    • Additional Madurai Pol Polarity (Naramon PolMadurai PolMadurai Pol vs. Naramon PolMadurai Pol)
  • As with any other Prime Warframe, moving close to the location of an Orokin Void Death Orb will restore a pulse of 250 Energy to nearby allies, even if that Death Orb is inactive, destroyed, or non-present. This effect can only occur once per orb.
  • Volt Prime possesses Appearance Arm Attachments titled Volt Prime Armor.

Trivia

  • Unlike the other starter frames (ExcaliburIcon272 Excalibur, MagIcon272 Mag, and formerly LokiIcon272 Loki) with their Prime counterparts, he does not possess their white and olive default color scheme. He also does not have the black and olive default scheme of the dark-colored Primes (Frost PrimeIcon272 Frost, Ember PrimeIcon272 Ember, Rhino PrimeIcon272 Rhino) either, instead having his own unique black and yellow scheme.
  • His appearance was seen in the PvP mod Mod TT 20px Relentless Assault before his release.
  • When using his Shock130xWhite Shock ability, Volt Prime summons a lightning bolt to strike an enemy from above, along with releasing a bolt from his hand. This effect, however, does not apply to chained enemies and is purely visual. The aerial lightning strike is also unaffected by energy color and will remain white.

Base vs Final Stats in Modding - Health / Energy / Shield / Armor Stat Overhaul

If you’ve spent any time invested in the deeper nuances of Modding, you may be familiar with “Warframe Math” - math that upon first glance doesn’t really make sense, but once you learn the inner workings of the game, it all comes together. While we can appreciate the value that complex systems offer to a certain subsect of players, there are other aspects of the game that should have clear and understandable outcomes. Namely: Shield, Health, Energy, and Armor Modding.

Pop quiz: what is 300 + 440%? If you answered 740, you may just be an Excalibur player.

Vitality (+440% Heath), Redirection (+440% Shields), Flow (+150% Energy), and Steel Fiber (+110% Armor) come with large modifier values that don’t seem to match their outcome in-game. This is because these Mods apply their multiplier to the base stats of the Warframe - i.e., the stats you have at Rank 0. In the Excalibur example, a Rank 30 Excalibur’s Health stat of 300 earns an additional 440 Health from max rank Vitality (+440% Heath) since it applies to his base rank Health stat of 100, resulting in 740 total health.

In this update, we have removed this obfuscation by having Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor Mods apply to the stats of Warframes at their current rank. Continuing our Excalibur example, instead of Vitality always applying to Excalibur’s base rank 100 Health, it would apply to his Health stat based on his rank - namely, the stat you can actually see in your Arsenal. If your Excalibur were Rank 30, his Health stat would be 300, which means Vitality’s multiplier would be calculated off of 300.

With previous Health and Mod values, additional adjustments are needed to make this revision work while maintaining game balance. By only changing where the multiplier applies, a Rank 30 Excalibur would receive an extra 1,320 Health from max rank Vitality, resulting in a total health stat of 1,600. This outcome is a significant buff, which is not the intention of this system change.

To remedy this, we approached this problem in two ways:

1 - We reduced the overall multiplier for Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor Mods.
Since these now affect Max Rank Warframe stats, these Mods need to scale differently to maintain the status quo. Additionally, we wanted these new values to be as clear and understandable to all players as possible! Here are a few examples of these value changes:

  • Vitality: Reduced from +440% to +100% Health
  • Redirection: Reduced from +440% to +100% Shield Capacity
  • Steel Fiber: Reduced from +110% to +100% Armor
  • Flow: Reduced from +150% to +100% Energy Max

Note: These are not all of the Mods affected by this change. We share the comprehensive list further down in this section of the update notes.

Doing some quick math, this means that a Rank 30 Excalibur (300 Health) with a reworked Vitality Mod (+100% Health, applied to the final Health stat) would receive 300 extra Health, for a total of 600. That, in contrast, is a nerf, which we also don’t want to do.

So, our next step:

2 - We adjusted Warframe Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor values to keep the end result of the revised Mods as close to the original values as possible.

With this change, Excalibur’s Rank 30 Health stat is 370. With +100% Health from a max Vitality Mod, his resulting Health stat would be 740, which matches what it was originally.

While this path to the same result may seem a little complicated, the outcome matches our intention: we want players to be able to look at their Health, Shield, and Armor Mods, and be able to understand how they affect the stats they see in their Arsenal.

In addition to everything above, we also increased the base stat values for Warframes so that these revised Mods offer similar value for lower-ranked Frames. To do so, we reduced the amount of Health/Shield/Energy that Warframes earn per rank in half, and transferred the sum of that value to their base stats.

For Armor, this is the one stat that does not increase with your Warframe’s level (with some exceptions). Armor values across the board have been slightly increased to compensate for the Mod changes.

Not to beat a dead Kaithe, but Mods will now be applying to the Max Rank stat instead of the Base Rank. You may look at these numbers and think “nerf” or “buff” depending, but the outcome is that total Modded values are the same, if not a little higher in some cases.

Warframe Stat Changes:

VOLT
Health: Base Rank - 270 (from 100) / Max Rank - 370 (from 300)
Shields: Base Rank - 455 (from 150) / Max Rank - 555 (from 450)
Armor: Base Rank - 105 (from 100)
Energy: Base Rank - 100 (from 100) / Max Rank - 150 (from 150)

VOLT PRIME
Health: Base Rank - 270 (from 100) / Max Rank - 370 (from 300)
Shields: Base Rank - 455 (from 150) / Max Rank - 555 (from 450)
Armor: Base Rank - 135 (from 125)
Energy: Base Rank - 200 (from 200) / Max Rank - 300 (from 300)

While there may be significant changes to Warframe Stats and Mod values as a part of this overhaul, the end result is that your Builds should mostly stay the same. The key difference is the added clarity of what your Health / Shield / Energy / Armor Mods do in your Upgrade screens!

General Fixes:
  • Fixed Volt Prime’s details on his lower back flailing around while you run.

Update 33.0 (2023-04-26)

Hotfix 32.2.9 (2023-01-11)

  • Fixed script errors caused by Volt’s Electric Shield and Discharge.

Update 32.2 (2022-11-30)

WARFRAME AUGMENT BUFFS - PART 3 (FINAL)

In the Veilbreaker and Nora’s Mix Vol 1 updates, we buffed a number of underused Warframe Augments (from Ash to Oberon). This third and final batch of buffs tackles Warframe Augments from Saryn to Zephyr. We have increased their viability in missions, which we hope will encourage more build diversity.

*Stats below are all at Max Rank.

VOLT
Shocking Speed

  • Was: Enemies touched while sprinting under the effects of speed will take 175 electrical damage with guaranteed Status Effect.
  • Changes:
    • Exposed the radius range stat (3m) and made it scale with Ability Range.
    • Increased Electricity Damage to 300.

Transistor Shield

  • Was: Allies can pick up Electric Shield. 300% of damage absorbed will be added to Volt’s Static Discharge.
  • Changes:
    • More than one ally can now pick up an Electric Shield. Previously, if a second ally picked up a Shield, the first would be forcibly dropped. Now, everyone in the squad can carry around a Shield simultaneously.
    • Volt can now cast more Electric Shields while carrying one. This change applies to the base ability as well!

Hotfix 32.0.9 (2022-10-05)

  • Fixed Volt being unable to pick up or carry his Shield after his Energy drops to 0.

Update 32.0 (2022-09-07)

STARTER WARFRAME ABILITY CHANGES: VOLT

The classic trio has been revisited for a bit of a facelift! Our goals were to make all abilities relevant, while simplifying some mechanics for new players to better understand. The changes are as follows:

VOLT

Passive:

  • Increased the points of Electricity Damage added for every 1 meter traveled from 5 to 10.
  • Updated passive to also include bonus damage to ‘Shock’ on attacks that bounce.

Shock

  • Reduced cost from 25 to 15 energy.
  • Unified range across all ranks to 15m.

Speed

  • Increased base speed from 50% to 75%, and unified across all ranks.
  • Increased duration from 5/10s to 9/12s (base/max).
  • Increased the reload speed buff from 17.5% to 25%.
  • Unified the range for all ranks to 25m.

Electric Shield (all changes below are specific to its carrying mechanic)

  • Removed Speed reduction while carrying the Shield.
  • Removed Energy Drain for every 4 meters traveled while carrying the Shield..
  • Removed Secondary weapon restriction. Primary and Melee weapons can now be used while carrying Shield.
  • Updated sound FX for picking up and dropping Shield.

Discharge:

  • Unified Electric Pulse Range to 20m across all ranks, and Electric Arc Radius to 8m across all ranks.
FIXES:
  • Fixed duration timer in HUD for Volt’s Speed disappearing if another member of the squad is playing Volt and casts Speed at the same time.

Hotfix 31.7.2 (2022-08-17)

  • Fixed a crash when Volt’s Speed ability expires.

Hotfix 31.5.6 (2022-05-04)

  • Fixed script error related to Volt’s Shock ability.

Update 31.5 (2022-04-27)

VOIDSHELL SKINS

The Void Jump transmogrified lifeforms and materials alike. In the Void’s clutches, even threads were imbued with adaptive properties. Suddenly, Zariman uniforms seemed to change from cloth, to stone, to metal, to liquid and back again as if of their own free will. The colonists realized materials had manifested new chemical structures, and a character you have yet to meet soon learned to control the transformations. Voidshell imbues cosmetics with the morphic material created in the Void Jump.

Introducing a brand new customization system that allows you to change the Material Structures on Voidshell Skins. There are Primary, Secondary, Tertiary, and Accent slots that can be swapped to materials of your choosing. They can also be color customized for the ultimate tailored look!

In this update, we are debuting the first round of Voidshell Skins featuring Saryn, Volt, and Rhino! Each of these following skins are available in the in-game Market and come with their own Material Structure:

Volt Voidshell Collection

Adorn Volt in the morphic material created during the Zariman Void Jump. This collection includes the Volt Voidshell Skin and Crimzian Opulence, a material structure for exclusive use on Voidshell skins.

Changes:
  • We have updated certain Warframe abilities to now affect allied NPCs! In the past, these abilities used to work to varying degrees of effectiveness, we now fixed some lingering issues with each of the abilities and they should be far more effective at assisting these allies in mission.
    • Changed the following Warframe Abilities to work on friendly NPCSs (Kavor Defectors, Cetus & Orb Vallis Drones, Specters, Companions, & Rescue Targets):
      • Volt’s Speed

Update 30.9 (2021-11-11)

  • Fixed playing as Volt during the tutorial allowing Electric Melee Damage to occur as a result of the passive.

Update 30.7 (2021-09-08)

  • Fixed the Tenet Envoy's guided rockets being unable to pass through Volt's Shield.

Hotfix 30.5.5 (2021-07-29)

  • Fixed a script error that could occur when using Transference next to a Volt Electric Shield with the Transistor Shield Augment equipped.

Hotfix 30.5.4 (2021-07-17)

  • Fixed Transferring to the Operator while standing beside Volt’s Electric Shield resulting in auto picking up the Shield.

Update 29.10 (2021-03-19)

  • Fixed Akarius’ projectiles detonating on Volt’s Electric Shield instead of passing through it.

Hotfix 27.3.14 (2020-04-15)

  • Fixed a script error when casting Volt’s Discharge ability right when another player was joining-in-progress.

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

  • Armor Change:
    • Volt: 15 to 100
    • Volt Prime: 100 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 27.0.12 (2020-01-23)

  • Fixed Volt visually missing his arm rings in his Codex/Market diorama.

Hotfix 27.0.11 (2020-01-16)

  • Fixed incorrect Electricity FX above Volt’s Electric Shield when Shock is cast through it.

Hotfix 27.0.10 (2020-01-11)

Hotfix 25.7.2 (2019-08-30)

  • Fixed the Prime Details toggle not behaving properly for TennoGen Skins on Volt Prime.
  • Fixed Volt’s electricity FX appearing as lines instead of lightning beams.

Update 25.7 (2019-08-29)

  • (Undocumented) Volt now has cloth physics.
  • Adjusted appearance of Volt’s Transistor Shield to make it clearer that squadmates can pick it up.

Update 25.6 (2019-08-08)

Transistor Shield - Electric Shield Augment - Volt
  • No additional energy drain when a shield is picked up by another player
  • Increase damage conversion %
Shock Trooper - Shock Augment - Volt
  • Holding the casting button will send out a wave (much like similar, expanding Warframe Abilities) giving the elemental buff to every player it touches, including the caster

Update 25.2 (2019-06-19)

  • Warframe Ability Augment stats are now displayed in the Ability screen for Volt!

Update 25.1 (2019-06-05)

  • Fixed Zanuka being unable to capture Volt.

Update 22.12 (2018-02-09)

  • Discharge
    • Removed the damage cap. Increased base damage output from 750 to 1200. Damage and stun duration are halved for enemies further away from Volt (affected by Mods).

Update 22.6 (2017-12-07)

  • Change:
    • Reduced Electric Shield’s Energy Cost per meter to 1 Energy per 4 meters (down from 1 per 1 meter)

Update 22.5 (2017-11-30)

  • Changes:
    • Since Volt has a new cosmetic entry, we've reviewed some long-requested QoL tweaks to his abilities to go along with it!
    • Added a minimum Duration for enemies affected by Discharge under the 'coil' CC effect. This could allow for possible modding diversity knowing minimum Duration for the 'coil' CC effect won't fall below 4 seconds.
    • Removed the passive 5 Energy per second drain from Volt’s Electric Shield when moving with it. The 1 Energy per meter drain remains.
    • Increased the base DPS of Discharge (from 450 at max rank to 750).
    • Discharge is now castable in the air.

Update 19.8 (2017-01-25)

  • Change
    • Volt’s Discharge no longer causes damage to Golem’s weak points in The Jordas Verdict. This was allowing Nerves to be destroyed without completing the prerequisite puzzles.

Hotfix 19.5.4 (2017-01-03)

  • Change:
    • Removed 'Hasten Coil' from Volt’s Speed ability description as the Hasten Coil was removed awhile back.
  • Fix:
    • Fixed very fast Volts not building up Static Discharge.

Hotfix: The Index Preview 4 (2016-10-25)

  • Conclave: Fixed a couple Dedicated Server script errors with Overload.

Hotfix: The Index Preview 3 (2016-10-21)

  • Removed the smudge motion blur from Speed ability.

Update: The Silver Grove (2016-08-19)

  • Conclave: Decreased duration of Shield.
  • Conclave: Removed duration reduction and reduced Energy drain when picking up Shield.
  • Fixed Discharge not applying diminishing returns to duration.
