Neither he nor she, Xaku is a composite... a Warframe assembly made of others lost in the early Entrati Void expeditions. Xaku has mastered this power of the Void to terrify and bewilder their adversaries.

Forged from the remnants of lost Warframes, they channel the spirits of the Void. This is Xaku, the fragmented, the restored.

In the concert of mayhem, Xaku is a law unto themselves, Tenno.

Release Date: August 25th, 2020

Of the Void ethereal, yet coalesced into corporeal shape, the fractured anomaly Xaku exists as an entity thrice entwined. Fused from the shattered remnants of three warriors, they bridge reality to the horrors from beyond the fold. Xaku reassembled in Update 29.0.

Notes

  • When Xaku wields their signature Quassus.png Quassus, the weapon's ethereal daggers become more accurate.
  • Xaku's VoidTearIcon b.png Void damage is only capable of procing its Bullet Attractor status and resetting Sentient and Shadow Stalker resistances, and only Xata'sWhisper130xDark.png Xata's Whisper and TheLost130xDark.png The Lost's Deny can do this. Their VoidTearIcon b.png Void damage lacks all other benefits, including bypassing Eidolon-type Sentient invulnerabilities and changing Profit-Taker Orb's shield weakness.

Trivia

  • Xaku is the 44th unique Warframe to be released.
  • Xaku is the second community-designed Warframe after NovaIcon272.png Nova. Xaku's theme selected from the chosen entries is "Broken Warframe", suggested by forum community member eaterofstorms.
    • Xaku's abilities were selected from multiple suggestions by hundreds of community members in the Open Call forum threads, with a Void-manipulation power theme chosen by the developers.
    • Community artists involved with the design of Xaku and their accessories include: Eornheit (Warframe concept art), Faven (alternate helmet), Kedemel (signature weapon), and Karu (signature Syandana).
  • Because Xaku is an amalgamation of three different Warframes, Xaku is the first Warframe to not have a distinct gender, being addressed by DE as "they/them".[1]
    • Despite this, concept art for Xaku shows that they were originally designed as a distinctly female Warframe. Some elements of this early design were incorporated into the final version.[2]
  • Xaku's idle, dodge, and ability animations involve the fragmentation of their body parts and exposure of the Aboroflora skeletal structure beneath.
    • Xaku is the sixth Warframe with unique rolling animations, after LimboIcon272.png Limbo, HildrynIcon272.png Hildryn, WispIcon272.png Wisp, TitaniaPrimeMain.png Titania Prime, and ProteaIcon272.png Protea, where Xaku launches themselves forward a short distance while their broken pieces come apart and reattach onto their energized skeletal form.
    • Xaku becomes fully skeletal in appearance while TheVastUntime130xDark.png The Vast Untime is activated.
  • Xaku's ability names relate to four Requiem Mods: Xata, Lohk, Fass and Ris.
    • The Lost's name may refer to part of Fass' description ("Roiling, moaning this realm of ours / In madness lost shall die") and the name of its sub-abilities - Gaze, Accuse, and Deny - are taken from Ris' description ("In luminous space blackened stars / They gaze, accuse, deny")
  • Xaku is the first Warframe to possess an ability buff that deals VoidTearIcon b.png Void damage.
  • Xaku is the first Warframe to possess sporatic base attributes, breaking the trend that all Warframe base attributes are multiples of 5.
  • Xaku's skeletal form has a visible face with distinct eye slits and eyes within them, marking them as the second Warframe in the game to have visible facial features, after Excalibur Umbra.
  • When Xaku is equipped with Wisp's Agile animation, and unarmed they will split into their composite and skeletal form. Similar to Wukong who spawns his celestial twin with the same animation or Equinox who will split into her day and night form
