A new Warframe update 2.16 is available to download on PS4, PS5, PC, and Xbox One. According to the official Warframe 2.16 patch notes, the latest update added 51st Warframe, VORUNA and a long list of bug fixes to the game. Apart from this, Warframe version 2.16 download size is 12.7GB on PS4 and ~3.7 on PS5.

Previously, the Echoes of the Zariman major update 31.6 added new Zariman content and a plethora of quality of life changes. Unfortunately, many players are still experiencing a number of issues while playing the game. Today’s Warframe patch 2.15 will fix a few of these issues.

Check out more details below.

Warframe 2.16 Patch Notes – November 30, 2022

Update 32.2.0: Lua’s Prey

The Kuva was poured, the lamps were lit, and the ritual of Continuity began.

Banner 3

The 51st Warframe, VORUNA, is here! Four beasts, one heart. Voruna’s loyal wolf pack, Dynar, Lycath, Raksh, and Ulfrun makes for a deadly combination of strength and stealth.

Gourmand Augment Mod Change: 
Was: Instead of Energy, consumes 200 Health on cast and 30 Health drain.
Now: Instead of Energy, consumes 200 Health on cast. Gourmand grants an additional 150 Armor (up to 400) per enemy.

  • Removed the “cycle to select + hold to cast” feature for Nourish’s buffs. Now, Nourish grants the following buffs to Grendel and allies within range on a single cast (with some exceptions).
    • (Previously holding to cast) Nourish’s healing effects no longer scales with enemy Health, but instead now heals Grendel 1000 Health on each cast.
    • (Previously Nourished Energy) Grendel and buffed allies are granted 2x Energy from all sources (scales with Ability Strength Mods).
    • (Previously Nourished Armor) Grendel and buffed allies explode radial Viral damage (2 second cooldown, independent for each player) when enemies attack Grendel in a 12m radius (at max rank).  100% Viral Status and staggers enemies.
    • (Previously Nourished Strike) Grendel and allies are granted Viral damage to their weapons.
  • Added a “Gut Empty” error when attempting to cast Nourish without any enemies in Grendel’s Gut.
    • For Helminth versions of this ability, other Warframes will still be able to use Nourish without the consumed enemies requirement.
  • Nourish Helminth Ability Changes:
    • Prior to this update, the Nourished Energy buff was omitted when injected on other Warframes. Now, the new 2x Energy from Orbs buff applies.
    • The healing effects are not transferred over when injected on other Warframes and the Viral damage is limited to one stack.

Hearty Nourishment Augment Mod Change: 
Was: Clear status and gain 2s of Status Immunity for each victim in Grendel’s stomach. 
Now: Clear status and gain 5s of Status Immunity for each victim in Grendel’s stomach.


  • Moved to the 3rd ability slot.
    • We felt Pulverize didn’t suit the “ultimate” status we’ve prescribed for other Warframes. So instead, we buffed Regurgitate to bring it up to the level we expect for a 4th ability slot. 
  • Grendel no longer needs to have enemies in his Gut to cast Pulverize.
    • Worth noting that even if there are enemies in his Gut, there is no longer an energy-per-second drain tied to them as per the changes made to Feast. 
  • Reduced the drain on an empty Gut from 10 Energy/s to 3 Energy/s.
  • Feast, Nourish, and Regurgitate can now be cast while in Pulverize.
  • Added a 50% Armor Reduction (at max rank) to enemies struck by Pulverize (scales with Ability Strength Mods).
  • Removed the Enemy Level multiplier from the total Impact Damage scaling.
    • New formula:  Total Impact Damage = [Impact Base Damage + (Number of Enemies Stored≤10 × 350)] × (1 + Ability Strength)
  • Grendel will now heal 200 Health/s for 5 seconds after Pulverize is cast, and then decay to half its starting value over the next 5 seconds (scales with Ability Strength Mods).
  • Pulverize can now strike tileset breakables (crates, resource deposits, etc.).
  • Made several movement improvements:
    • Improved general control over Pulverize’s movement.
    • Improved movement went traversing slopes to make it smoother.
    • Momentum is now maintained on cast in and out.
    • Stairs can now be climbed while in Pulverize.
    • Sprint can now be used to go faster but at the cost of control over movement.
  • Grendel’s Pulverize form now takes on player customized colors and Voidshell Material Structure customizations if you own the Grendel Voidshell Skin.

Catapult Augment Mod Change:
Was: Launch Grendel in your aim direction. Costs 10 Energy. 
Now: Launch Grendel in your aim direction. Costs 5 Energy. Crouch to slow down. 


  • Moved to the 4th ability slot.
  • Added guaranteed Toxin Status Effect.
  • Added 75% Armor Reduction on Regurgitated enemies (scalable with Ability Strength Mods).
  • Increased Toxin Radius Range from 5m to 6m (at max rank).
    • Added VFX on cast to show the affected radius.
  • Enemies hit by Regurgitated foes are now slowed by 80%, which decays to 0% over time (6 seconds).
  • Changed the total Toxin Damage multiplier from enemy level to total enemy Health %.
  • Added a 50 Energy cost on cast.

Grendel Fixes: 

  • Fixed some hard edges on Grendel’s hand trail FX.
  • Fixed Grendel losing all momentum in Regurgitate when jumping with no forward movement input.
  • Fixed Grendel being able to Feast on Eidolon Lures.


Ride the wave, Tenno! Yareli has leveled up her water bending skills and increased her survivability with the following changes.


  • Added a 1 second delay before the Critical Flow buff ends after Yareli stops moving.

Sea Snares

  • Enemies captured in Sea Snares now have 200% Damage Vulnerability from all other sources (similar to Nezha’s Blazing Chakram).
    • Enemies that are immune to Crowd Control (Eximus with remaining Overguard for example) will not be impacted by Sea Snares’ immobilizing effect (as intended), but will still be affected with Damage Vulnerability if caught by the ability. Sea Snares’ bubble effects will still circulate around  Crowd-Control-immune enemies to indicate that they are being affected by its Damage Vulnerability (and its other damaging effects).  
  • Increased the seek radius range of Yareli’s Sea Snares from 4m to 10m.


  • For the first 4 seconds after casting, Merulina will gain Health instead of losing it when being attacked, similarly to how Iron Skin functions. Additionally, Yareli will be temporarily invulnerable during the damage absorption.
  • Merulina will persist with your Warframe when transferring to and from Operator.
    • Also enabled this for all other K-Drives and Warframes during Transference.


  • Riptide can now be cast in different ways for different effects:
    • Tap to create a Riptide water tornado that pulls in nearby enemies.
      • Upon expiry of the ability, or when recasting while Riptide is still active,  the existing Riptide will explode. 
    • Press and hold to create a Riptide that automatically pulls enemies in and explodes them out (how it used to work before above changes).
  • 2 seconds after casting, Riptide’s suction range now defaults to 5m (non-scaling).
    • Similar to how Nezha’s Divine Spears impales and slams enemies in two separate actions, Riptide now pulls in enemies first and explodes in the next. 

Yareli Fixes: 

  • Fixed Yareli going invisible during the Archon struggle animation in Archon Hunts if she is riding Merulina when the Archon grabs her.
    • Once the interaction begins, Yareli will be dismounted from Merulina to struggle against the Archon. 
  • Fixed loss of function after hacking a panel while riding Merulina and then using Transference.
  • Fixed Yareli Specter not using any abilities (apart from Merulina as intended).


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.

Revealing Spores 

  • Was: Infected enemies within 40m will show up on the Minimap.

  • Was: Hitting at least 4 enemies with Spellbind will grant Titania 50 Energy. 
  • Changes:
    • Successfully hitting at least 4 enemies also adds 40% more range on the next cast of Spellbind.

Beguiling Lantern

  • Was: Attracted enemies take 100% more melee damage. 
  • Changes:
    • The 100% damage bonus now applies to all weapons (including Titania’s Dex Pixia and Diwata) and scales with Ability Strength.

Pool of Life

  • Was: On death, marked enemies will drop 4 Health Orbs with a 25% chance of dropping an Energy Orb. 
  • Changes:
  • Energy Orbs now have a 100% chance of dropping. This amount can still scale with Ability Strength to potentially produce multiple Orbs.

Prolonged Paralysis 

  • Was: Affected enemies are pulled towards Valkyr and the stun duration is increased by 200%. 
  • Changes:
  • The pull strength now scales with distance from Valkyr – meaning enemies are now pulled close to Valkyr instead of colliding or flying past her.
  • Stunned enemies will now remain standing instead of getting knocked down so that they are opened up to standing finishers.

Swing Line 

  • Was: After using Rip Line, the next 4 Rip Lines will have no energy cost while airborne. 
  • Changes:
  • Added +20% Parkour Velocity.

Photon Repeater

  • Was: If Photon Strike hits at least 5 enemies, the next cast will cost no Energy. 
  • Changes:
  • After successfully hitting at least 5 enemies, the next cast will fire a second strike.

Transistor Shield

  • Was: Allies can pick up Electric Shield. 300% of damage absorbed will be added to Volt’s Static Discharge. 
  • Changes:

  • Volt can now cast more Electric Shields while carrying one. This change applies to the base ability as well!

Critical Surge

  • Was: Teleporting to a Reservoir costs 50% Energy and grants 10% Critical Chance to Sniper Rifles per meter traveled for 9s. Maximum of 350% Critical Chance. 
  • Changes:
  • The bonus 10% Critical Chance now applies to all Primary weapons.
  • Reduced the 350% Critical Chance maximum to 250% now that all primary weapons have the buff applied.

Enveloping Cloud

  • Was: Allies within 4m of the cloud become invisible to enemies for 14s. 
  • Changes:
  • Changed the invisibility applied to no longer make allies visible when they make noise. They will now remain invisible for the full duration regardless of noise.

The Relentless Lost 

  • Was: Casting The Lost increases Ability Strength for The Lost by 35%. The bonus can stack up to 3x and resets if you cast the same ability twice. 
  • Changes:
  • Each stack also increases Ability Efficiency for The Lost by 15% up to 45%.
  • Clarified in description: Casting the same ability back-to-back resets the effect.

Target Fixation 

  • Was: Each enemy hit increases Tail Wind Damage by 100%. Damage resets upon being on ground for 2s. 
  • Changes:
  • Casting Tail Wind (Tap and Hold) now resets Zephyr’s double/bullet jump – making it easier to stay airborne!
  • Bullet jumping now also overrides the velocity of Tail Wind – so you can more precisely control your direction after flight.

Airburst Rounds

  • Was: Each enemy hit by Airburst increases secondary damage by 25% for 14s. 
  • Changes:
  • Increased damage to 40% (max still 500%).


While reviewing the stats of some weapons with a semi-automatic mode, we noticed that certain weapons had an unsustainably high fire rate for most players. We adjusted the stats of the following semi-automatic weapons whose maximum potential was only being reached with the use of macros (to learn more about third-party use in Warframe visit our support article). Since not everyone is an avid macro user (within the boundaries allowed), we lowered fire rates to a more humanly achievable level and improved their damage or reload stats to compensate.

The following Eximus changes are a follow up to their rework, Eximus Reborn, that launched in Update 31.5: Angels of the Zariman. In that update, Eximus saw an improvement to their mechanic readability and were given consistent Heath/Energy Orbs drops and guaranteed ammo drops. Ultimately these changes made them a clear priority objective and turned them from a threat into an opportunity for players seeking those useful drops. Since then, we have identified where Eximus units are requiring some more tweaks in light of the previous rework: Spawn Logic and Base Health.

Eximus Spawn Logic Changes:
After the rework, we found that Eximus spawns were at times, too unreliable. In some missions, Eximus would not spawn until the 5 minute mark; in others, these enemies would appear earlier and with increasing frequency. While there will still be some variations in-place due to mission type and level, we want to rectify some inconsistencies for the appearance rates of these foes.

  • Unified the overall Eximus spawn experience across missions by changing their minimum spawn time down to 60 seconds, and unified the ramp up of spawn rates across all game modes.
  • Increased Eximus spawn chance by 20% across all game modes.
    • The overall increase of spawn chance was made in an effort to make encounters with Eximus more consistent and reliable. This is quite a large encompassing change, so we look forward to your constructive feedback! 

Eximus Base Health Changes:
The introduction of Overguard on Eximus units was introduced as a means to make them feel more formidable and encourage concentrated firepower. We did, however, find that once an Eximus’ Overguard protection was removed, they didn’t survive long after. Which ultimately made Mercy kills difficult to obtain since they were dying before the opportunity could present itself. That said, to improve the chances of a Mercy kill along with also maintaining Eximus as a threat after their Overguard is removed we did the following:

  • Increased a portion of their base Health so that they have a bigger Health pool (Overguard remains unchanged, Health only).
    • It is difficult to provide an exact global percent increase since different units scale in different ways, but you should expect to see them have around 30% more total Health. 
  • Increased Health threshold for Mercy kills on Eximus.
    • Before they needed to be below 40% Health to be Mercy killed, now that is doubled, so under 80% Health is enough to Mercy kill them. 


The sections below highlight quality of life changes that have been made in this update to improve player experience!

HUD Improvements: 
The following changes have been made to better communicate an enemy’s state to players via HUD improvements.

Break Narmer/Kahl’s Garrison Changes & Fixes: 

  • New Captura Scenes are available for Stock in Chipper’s Offerings:
    • Veilbreak Forest Scene
    • Veilbreak Murex Scene
    • Veilbreak Factory Scene
  • Changed the “Defeat Ven’kra Tel/Sprag” Challenges to be part of the randomized Break Narmer challenge pool instead of expected for their respective missions.
    • Prior to this change, they were 100% guaranteed to show up as challenges for their respective missions. After December 5th, they will no longer be forced and will just be added to the random pool of challenges that rotate. 
  • Re-enabled Arsenal access in Kahl’s Captura.
    • This was disabled in a past hotfix due to issues with Kahl’s Arsenal. As promised, it has been re-enabled so that you can access your Kahl fashion in Captura. 
  • Fixed Kahl’s Kuva Ayanga displaying ammo numbers despite having infinite ammo.
  • Fixed seeing your Warframe wearing Kahl attachments instead of Kahl himself when entering the Drifter Camp scene in Kahl’s Captura.
  • Fixed the mission overview for Break Narmer missions always showing “mission failed” and 0s on mission time even if it was a success.
  • Fixed Kahl gliding in the air towards targeted enemy if “Melee Auto Targeting” option is toggled on.
  • Fixed the Break Narmer mission start button appearing as “MENU_GENERIC1 START MISSION” while using a controller.
  • Fixed being unable to close out of the End of Mission screen after aborting a Break Narmer mission while using a controller.
  • Fixed Kahl’s Grakata sticking straight up after throwing Incendiary Grenades while scooting around on jetpack.
  • Fixed being unable to damage the Narmer Scyto Raknoid while Kahl has the Machete equipped.
  • Fixed crash related to using the Veilbreaker ability and mashing the context action while flying around with Hellion Jetpack.
  • Fixed the Gene Stamp context action being low res.
  • Fixed crash that would occur when attempting to enter the Dormizone and Drifter Camp Captura scene with Kahl.
  • Fixed a duplicate Kuva Ayanga appearing on the ground after mounting a Rampart in the Junk Run mission.
  • Fixed the tree behind Kahl’s Garrison having a semi-transparent root.

Trinity Well of Life Changes: 

  • Allies in range of Well of Life’s radius are now protected from Status Effects. When a Status Effect is blocked, the enemy trapped in Well of Life takes a 10% hit to their Health.
    • A projectile FX now circles the enemy affected by Well of Life to indicate when an ally is protected from Status Effects. 
  • Increased Trinity’s Well of Life base range from 8 meters to 15 meters.

Conclave Changes: 
We were able to make a handful of changes to Conclave based on player feedback to bring it up a bit more to meet their expectations. This mostly comprises a handful of fixes and adjustments. For transparency’s sake, the team’s resources are prioritized in Warframe’s PVE content. But in cases like these, we will provide maintenance here and there when a window opens for it.

  • Removed the Wolf Sledge, Telos Boltace, Zenith, Tatsu, Tatsu Prime, and Staticor from Conclave.
    • In their current state, they had several broken interactions. 
  • Disabled melee auto-blocking in Conclave.
  • Disabled shield gating in Conclave.
  • Disabled Atlas’ Rumblers having Petrify AOE in Conclave.
  • Fixed the Lacera dealing Toxin Damage instead of Electricity Damage on ground slams in Conclave.
  • Fixed Electricity Status Effects reproc-ing themselves repeatedly, especially if proc duration was longer (notably with Saryn’s passive).
  • Fixed Gas Status Effects using its non-Conclave duration.

General Additions: 

  • A new Captura Scene is available in Archimedean Yonta’s offerings in the Chrysalith: Lua Circulus Scene.
  • The following TennoGen items are now available for purchase in the in-game Market:
    • Mesa Kudegra Skin by malaya & Xtygian
    • Heavy Blade Ion Skin by Yatus & IgnusDei
  • Added Warframe surveys! You may now be part of a small percentage of players to receive an optional Warframe survey during your playing experience. We are continuing to experiment with these surveys as an additional way to get your feedback. These short survey questions are delivered at the end of a mission!

General Changes:

  • Ammo pickups have a brand new look!
    • Not pictured: Heavy Ammo pickups, but they have been updated as well! 
  • Updated the in-game Market landing page to showcase Update specific (Lua’s Prey) and Featured categories instead of a single grid.
    • This is a soft launch to test various features for the landing page, and as such will only appear from some players and not all. 
  • The Somachord’s UI in the Personal Quarters has a new look for all your music listening needs!
    • Also added helpful tips about the Somachord and Tones.
  • Increased the roll distance of Mirage’s Passive.
    • Before this change, Mirage’s increased roll speed affected how fast the roll animation played, but moved her forward at the same rate, resulting in the roll traveling less distance. Now, the roll moves forward faster, to match the increased animation, so that she travels a distance comparable to a normal roll.
  • The Exodia Force Arcane will no longer trigger Saryn’s Toxic Lash.
    • This combo was causing significant performance issues.
  • Updated the Zariman tileset’s PBR to add more roughness and color variation.
  • Removed the colorful flash of light when Thrax enemies leap in Zariman missions.

    • The options were previously Yes/No. 
  • Cleaned up some FX related to the Exodia Force Arcane.
  • The Last Gasp Indicator now pulses to its FX audio.
  • Reduced the cooldown on the Drifter’s Restorative ability in The New War Quest from 13 to 15 seconds.
  • Removed all of the extra decimal 0s from stats display to reduce the visual noise it was creating.

  • Fixed the Kompressa’s explosions causing significant spikes in GPU/CPU times.
  • Improved login and Lunaro load-times for people in Clans or Alliances without Emblems.

  • Fixed the Wolf Sledge’s Heavy Attack/throw not consuming its combo counter.
