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.

Information for other categories is obtained by owning the item in question (Mods) or by progressing in Mastery Ranks (Art Gallery).

This section is yet to be implemented. The following data is based on the information from the livestreams and is subject to change.

Missions will have a special object (mainframe or reactor) that will provide information when scanned with the data sample.

The data masses picked up in the Spy mission are planned to hold random blocks of information that will be filled in the codex once mission is complete.

There is a variety of information that can be gathered on each mission:

  • Drop Tables

It is unknown if there is a bonus associated once all information is discovered.
