A desolate, ruined world. Home of the oppressive Grineer Empire.
—In-game description Earth is a planet under Grineer control, and is the first planet players can access.
Assassination Target for Earth is Councilor Vay Hek, located in the mission Oro. Vay Hek drops the blueprints for the parts of the Hydroid Warframe. A Mastery Rank of 5 or higher is required to access the boss mission.
Earth is the only planet to feature the
Grineer Forest Tileset.
Every six hours, the tileset will change from day to night, mimicking the day cycles in real life. The change will feature different vegetation that can be scanned for extracts that are used to craft
Antitoxins, with Sunlight variants during the day and Moonlight variants at night.
Strata Relay Status
Invasion Missions: The Infested will always appear as an "Opposing" faction during Invasion missions.
Earth never has Invasions or Infestation Outbreaks, perhaps due to the low level.
Most of the names of Earth's missions are from a variety of Earth-related topics, such as:
As of Update 14, Earth is the first planet accessible to players, beginning with the Vor's Prize quest.
Prior to Update 14.0.6, Earth rotated in the wrong direction on the mission screen.
Earth was the first planet to have Interception missions.
Despite being described as a "desolate, ruined world" Earth has very lush forests, which Vay Hek tried to destroy during The Cicero Crisis.
The Strata Relay was the first player hub destroyed by one of Vay Hek's Balor Fomorians in the Eyes of Blight event.
Earth is the earliest planet on which Wildlife can be encountered, as it is the home of Feral Kubrows.
This also means that Earth is the earliest place for Kubrow mods to be obtained.
Earth seems to have the largest variety of enemy levels in the game, with most missions being at levels 1-8 and the Law of Retribution being at levels 70-80.
Earth is the first and only planet to have a day-night cycle, which changes every 4 hours in real time.
According to DE's Steve Sinclair, there's a reason as to why the Moon can't be seen at night.
Earth has no Survival missions, due to them being replaced with Excavation missions.
