Excalibur Prime is the primed variant of the Excalibur Warframe featuring more powerful stats: possessing higher armor, as well as an additional and a Aura slot, rather than a slot without a polarity.
Excalibur Prime is a Founders-exclusive Warframe.
This Warframe is no longer available, and will not be available again due to it being exclusive to certain Founder packs. The Excalibur Prime Warframe was only obtainable by upgrading a Warframe account to Founders status of Hunter or greater, which is no longer available. The Warframe came with its own warframe slot and was already augmented with an Orokin Reactor.
The Founders' program closed on the 1st of November, 2013, as announced on the warframe forums. This closure is inclusive of pack upgrades.
- As a Prime Warframe, Excalibur Prime possesses a special passive ability where contact with an Orokin Void Death Orb will make them release an energy pulse that grants 250 Energy to all nearby allies. This effect can only occur once per Death Orb, and can occur even if the Death Orb has been previously destroyed.
- Excalibur Prime is the first prime Warframe in game.
- There is a statue of Excalibur Prime inside the Orokin Derelict vaults.
- Compared to the later prime Warframes, Excalibur Prime has the least cosmetic difference compared to his standard counterpart, with the only significant additions being the Void Key-shaped emblem on his helmet and golden blades along his forearms.
- When he was released, it was widely believed that Excalibur Prime had a slightly faster shield recharge rate compared to the non-prime variant.
- While the existence of this feature can neither be confirmed, nor denied, Excalibur Prime currently does not possess this stat change.
- Much like how Update 14.0 gave the standard Excalibur an ethereal Skana when using his abilities, Excalibur Prime uses an ethereal Skana Prime with his abilities, which was also added in the same update.
- Prime, the Orokin enhancement to a Warframe or weapon.
