- This mod can be acquired by attaining the rank of General under Steel Meridian, or the rank of Genius under Cephalon Suda, and spending 25,000 to purchase.
- Damage bonus is applied to all weapons and some Warframe powers (check Smite Infusion notes for further information).
- Cold damage appears to combine with single elements from weapon mods.
- This augment can fuse with other damage augment abilities such as Venom Dose, combining the two to create their associated damage as separate elements (e.g.: If one casts Freeze Force ( Cold) and Venom Dose( Toxin) on a player, the final damage will be Viral).
- Unlike regular Freeze, the augment cast has no AoE and must land directly on the intended target.
- And unlike Fireball Frenzy, the actual projectile needs to hit the target, whereas with Ember's augment the player simply needs to be aiming at the ally during and slightly after the cast, with the fireball homing onto the ally.
- As with all elemental damage boosting augments, it can be cast on Companions, Specters, Mind Controlled enemies, Shadows, Saryn's Molt, Loki's Decoy, Invasion Allies weapons and clones created from Blade Storm.
- When cast on specters or invasion allies it used to provide a cold damage proccing aura around them, giving them more use as the damage increase is always minimal even with high power strength. This was removed by DE with no explanation.
- Recently (around Update 18.9) this feature was mysteriously restored, as well as the freezing aura now affecting allies. Now, allies who have freeze force placed onto them will emit a short range cold aura that will damage enemies and apply cold procs. It is unknown why this feature was returned and buffed.
- And around the Lunaro update, DE stealth nerfed it yet again, and it no longer provides this bonus cold damage aura.
- It was then re-buffed again, and currently is back as of October 7th, 2016.
