The Codex is an in-game database containing data on all aspects of Warframe. Several sections of the Codex are automatically populated as content is released (Warframes, Weapons, Events, Sentinels, Sentinel Weapons) and are additionally used to track player's progress in attaining and leveling those items.
In order to obtain information on enemies, missions and game world objects for the Codex players need to scan the relevant items using Codex Scanner.

There is a variety of information that can be gathered on each enemy type:
- Level Range
- Mod Drops (and rarity)
- Effectiveness of Physical and Elemental Damage Types
The Codex displays the enemy's weakness and resistances to each damage type. Each plus or minus sign means 25%.
The number of scans needed of each enemy type for the codex profile to be complete varies between 3 and 30. 3 For bosses and high tier enemies and 30 for the lowest tier enemies (like the different types of crawlers).
