By channeling moisture and vapor in the surrounding environment, Frost creates formidable defenses and lethal attacks from sub zero conditions.

This is Frost, colder and deadlier than space itself.

Frost can protect or punish, the decision is yours.

Frost is a slow and heavily-armored Warframe that is able to utilize offensive and defensive skills to both his own and his team's advantage. He commands furious blizzards that pummel and freeze his enemies while providing respite and solace for his allies.

Concept art of an unused boss for Dark Sector, which was later adapted for Frost's design

  • Frost's design is based on concept artwork for an unused boss intended to appear in DE's previous game, Dark Sector.
  • The large, dark ports on Frost and Frost Prime's arms are considered customizable Armor parts, and will be removed if any other arm plates are used.
  • Both his Arcane alternative helmets will positively affect his Snow Globe ability.

Edit Tab

Frost Prime has the same chilling abilities as Frost but its altered mod polarities offer different possibilities for customization. It is also rumored that this Warframe has a unique reaction to certain Orokin technology.

Release Date: May 3rd, 2013

Frost Prime is the primed variant of the Frost Warframe featuring more powerful stats, possessing higher shield capacity as well as an additional Vazarin Pol polarity.

On March 17, 2015, it was announced that Frost Prime would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on March 24th, 2015. Any preexisting components or fully-built frames will remain as is.

Frost Prime along with Latron Prime and Reaper Prime was again accessible on December 8th, 2015 to January 5th, 2016 when the Prime Vault was unsealed.

Frost Prime (along with Sicarus Prime, Glaive Prime, Ember Prime, Latron Prime, and Reaper Prime) were available from December 6th, 2016 to January 3rd, 2017 as part of the Fire and Ice Prime Vault.

Duration:5 / 7 / 12 / 15 s (freeze duration)
6 / 8 / 10 / 12 s (ice duration)
Range:∞ (cast range)

  • Frost launches an icy projectile that inflicts 150 / 225 / 275 / 350 Cold b Cold damage on impact and 50 / 100 / 125 / 150 Cold b Cold damage with a 100% status chance in an area. Enemies directly hit by the projectile will be frozen over a duration of 5 / 7 / 12 / 15 seconds. If the projectile impacts a surface, a patch of ice will be created that lasts 6 / 8 / 10 / 12 seconds and slows enemies as they enter its area of effect.
    • All damage is affected by Power Strength and body-part multipliers.
    • Cold b Cold status effect reduces a target's movement speed and fire/attack rate by 50% over a duration of 6 seconds. An ice patch created by Freeze reduces a target's movement speed and fire/attack rate by 75% in an area that persists until the patch's duration expires.
    • Area damage affects the initial target, decreases with distance, and does not bypass obstacles in the environment.
    • Freeze duration and ice duration are affected by Power Duration.
    • The freeze duration will end prematurely if the initial target loses 50% of its current health during the time its frozen.
  • While frozen, enemies are unable to regenerate shields.
  • Casting Freeze onto the exterior of a Snow Globe will destroy it, triggering an icy explosion that damages and ragdolls enemies in an area of effect.
  • Casting Avalanche on a target frozen by Freeze will override Freeze's effects. The target will remain frozen for Avalanche's duration while temporarily reducing the target's armor and removing Freeze's health threshold.
  • Freeze is a one-handed action. As such, it can be used while performing various maneuvers and actions without interruption.
  • Can be recast on a frozen target multiple times, restarting the freeze timer.
  • Has a cast delay of ~0.6 seconds.

40% / 50% / 60% / 67% (slow)
Duration:1 / 2 / 3 / 4 s (invulnerability duration)
Range:5m radius

  • Frost creates a protective globe of ice with a diameter of 10 meters, a base health of 3000 / 4000 / 4500 / 5000, and additional health equal to 500% of Frost's base armor bonuses. Upon activation, the globe is invulnerable for 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 seconds. Incoming damage that is absorbed during the invulnerability period is converted into health and added to the globe's health.
    • Base health and armor multiplier are affected by Power Strength.
    • Snow Globe's health uses the following expression when accounting for Power Strength: Modified Health = (Base Health + 5 × Frost's Base Armor × Base Armor Bonus) × (1 + Power Strength) + Absorbed Damage.
      • For example, with a maxed Steel Fiber and Intensify, rank-3 Snow Globe will have an initial health of (5000 + 5 × 300 × 1.1) × (1 + 0.3) = 8645 before converting absorbed damage.
    • While active, a health counter becomes visible on the ability icon that tracks the health percentage of the most recently placed Snow Globe from 100% to 0%.
    • Frost and his allies do not contribute to Snow Globe's health gain by shooting the globe during the invulnerability period.
    • Invulnerability duration is not affected by Power Duration.
    • Globe radius is affected by Power Range.
  • Upon activation, Snow Globe freezes enemies within its radius over a duration of ? / ? / ? / 3 seconds while violently pushing them outwards. If the enemies hit obstacles, they can be dealt as much as 50% of their maximum health as Finisher damage. Enemies that enter the globe will have their attack/movement speed reduced by 40% / 50% / 60% / 67%.
    • Damage percentage and slow percentage are not affected by Power Strength, and the damage bypasses armor and shields.
    • Freeze duration is not affected by Power Duration.
  • Most gunfire, both friendly and hostile, is blocked from entering the globe (gunfire can exit the globe normally). Abilities which are not area-of-effect in nature (e.g., Shuriken) are blocked as well.
    • Before The War Within Update, Area-of-effect blasts from the attacks of Grineer Napalms and Bombards penetrated the globe, as well as their respective stagger, knockdown, and burn procs. However, a globe large enough could prevent these areal attacks from hitting players in the direct center or on the opposite end of the globe. Since Update 19 The War Within, these attacks don't penetrate the globe anymore.
    • Snow Globe will not block direct-targeted attacks, such as Soul Punch, Shock, and Smite. It will block attacks with Punch Through, but not Railgun MOA projectiles.
  • Casting Freeze onto the exterior of a globe will destroy it, triggering an icy explosion that deals ? / ? / ? / 150 Cold b Cold damage in an area of effect.
    • Explosion damage is affected by Power Strength.
    • The damage does not diminish with distance and bypasses obstacles in the environment.
    • Affected enemies are ragdolled by the explosion.
    • Freeze is capable of destroying a globe even during its invulnerability period.
  • Snow Globe can be recast multiple times, but there are restrictions on the number of globes that can be created in the environment.
    • A maximum of 4 separate Snow Globes can be cast at any given time. Casting Snow Globe after reaching the maximum will remove the oldest globe.
    • Casting Snow Globe while inside an existing globe will remove the older globe and combine the total remaining health values of both globes for the newer one. The invulnerability period is reactivated for each cast.
      • Snow Globes created inside existing globes do not count toward the maximum number of instances, and Snow Globe's health can stack with repeated casts until reaching a maximum combined health of 1,000,000.

  • Maximized Power Strength along with Steel Fiber and Armored Agility will add up to a total health of 26386.75 (using Arcane Squall Helmet and Arcane Guardian is recommended, because they increase Snow Globe's health even further).
  • Place over a cryopod in defense missions to shield it from all incoming fire.
    • Maximized Power Duration will reduce the globe's radius to 1.7 meters, allowing the globe to protect a cryopod without obstructing friendly fire.
  • Maximized Power Range will create a snow globe that can cover large areas, making it ideal for slowing down large numbers of enemy units or melee-oriented Bosses. Bear in mind however that this strategy runs the risk of incapacitating or even killing players wielding explosive weapons, and generally makes it difficult for players outside the globe from attacking enemies inside it. As such, use this strategy at your own discretion.
  • When a teammate is downed, place a Snow Globe over him/her to protect you while reviving.
  • When facing a boss with ranged attacks, do not place a Snow Globe on it. Instead, place it where your team is to protect them from incoming damage.
  • The particle effect inside the globe can distract players' vision. Having a black energy color will remove this particle effect entirely, allowing better vision inside the globe.
  • Recasting the ability after 4 seconds while remaining inside the Snow Globe will allow to sustain an impenetrable Snow Globe, that will grow stronger and stronger. This is due to the fact that it absorbs the enemy fire into its health and adds this health to the next Globe, as long as it is cast inside the first one.
    • Particularly useful in T4 Defense, since the enemies will quickly reach a level where it does not matter how much base health your Snow Globe has.
  • Snow Globe's ability to temporarily freeze and push away enemies can be an effective way to rapidly clear a large safe area to revive teammates or remove enemies attacking a defense objective.
  • Using Freeze to detonate a Snow Globe can also be done while inside another globe. This will not affect the globe you are in. If multiple globes overlap, it is possible to shatter a globe which protrudes into another globe by aiming at the part inside your globe.
    • It is possible to detonate the Snow Globe that you are in in some Corpus or Void missions by bouncing Freeze off the Bubble of a Nullifier Crewman.(Results May be unpleasant)

  • Frost summons an avalanche that freezes enemies over a duration of 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 seconds within a radius of 8 / 10 / 12 / 15 meters. Frozen enemies have their armor reduced by 25 / 30 / 35 / 40% of their current armor (like Corrosive b Corrosive proc) for the duration of the freeze.
    • Armor reduction is affected by Power Strength.
    • The armor reduction can only be applied once to a frozen enemy (i.e., the armor reduction does not stack with multiple casts).
    • Duration is affected by Power Duration.
    • Freeze radius is affected by Power Range.
  • Once the avalanche completely encompasses the area of effect after a short delay, 800 / 1000 / 1200 / 1500 Cold b Cold damage is dealt to all frozen enemies.

    Edit Tab

    General

    • Frost has high base armor and excellent shield values and can be played as either an offensive bruiser caster or a defensive tank support . An offensive Frost can focus on abilities such as Ice Wave and Avalanche to slow and clear entire rooms and waves, or use Snow Globe and Freeze for a more defensive role by protecting teammates from gunfire and immobilizing powerful enemies, respectively.
    • His base sprint speed is amongst the slowest of the Warframes. Keep this in mind when dealing with impatient team mates playing faster frames or when running from fast-paced enemies such as disgruntled Infested or Corpus Moa. Adding a sprint speed mod (Rush) of 20% or more is usually considered enough to keep up with other players and reduce the frustration from such a slow base speed. Advanced players may use the "Horizontal Kick-Off" Maneuver to catch up to teammates.

    Skills

    Freeze

    • Its primary strength is that a direct hit causes the target to be frozen in place for a fixed 10 seconds, regardless of rank. This is particularly useful when fighting single enemies such as bosses to buy time for teammates to revive incapacitated Tenno, recharge shields, reload, etc.
    • Targets that are frozen will be freed of their immobility if they take health damage by anything. Freeze's utility can be easily wasted unless proper coordination with teammates is exercised.
    • Freeze can be used to set up an effective kill-combo on an enemy with a burst-damage attack.

    Ice Wave

    • As a damage and crowd control ability, it can be dependent on the situation; it only affects those in front you rather than all around you. It works effectively against a large group of enemies rather than a single enemy like a boss.
    • Even though the wave moves along the floor, it is able to hit enemies that are slightly above or below it, such as Shield Ospreys.
    • Ice Wave is best used against enemies in a tightly-packed line. Loses effectiveness on infested as Ancients resist much of the damage.
    • Since it passes through Snow Globe, Ice Wave can be used to clear the globe of enemies if Frost is somehow forced out of it.

    Snow Globe

    • Enemies that enter or are already inside the snow globe will suffer the Cold effect, though their bullets will travel normally when fired inside the shield.
    • Those inside the globe can shoot targets outside, however players outside the globe cannot shoot targets inside; the globe blocks all incoming fire, enemy and player alike. Using a snow globe to trap and slow down a boss is best recommended for an organized team, as players some distance away will have their ordinance blocked by the globe.
    • The probability of being shot at when inside the shield is lower when fighting Grineer Lancers and Corpus crewmen, as they tend to melee when close to players.
    • Creative use of Snow Globe when on the run can be used to block incoming gunfire and slow down chasing enemies.
    • The Snow Globe can also be used as a way through Corpus lasers. Frost's shields will still take a hit, but you'll be able to get through without being staggered or knocked down.
    • This ability is perfect for the defense of any fixed location such as cyropod defense missions against Corpus or Grineer, as you can use it to slow a group of enemies closer to the pod and block their fire from the outside.
    • This ability does not block incoming Ignis fire from Grineer Scorches or rockets from the Ogris.
    • There is a bug where using Snow Globe displays 75 energy is used however only 50 energy is spent upon using this ability
    • When against Infested, Snow Globe is best placed at choke points or around but not directly on top of the cryopod. Their tendency to swarm means that a huge number of infested enemies will quickly be trapped in the Globe making them infinitely easier to kill rather than letting them swarm the pod before they are slowed. 
    • In Update 12.0 Snow Globe actually has health and can be taken down by enemies when damaged enough. Making Endless Defense missions against Corpus and Grineer harder.

    Avalanche

    • Avalanche stuns and knocks back enemies a small distance when cast, this may result in them being out of range for the freeze and subsequent damage, so it is important to make sure you group enemies effectively before casting.
    • This ability can damage enemies through walls. Using Avalanche while pressed against a wall can clear a room without even entering.
    • Avalanche can hit enemies who are above or below Frost's position.
    • Scales well against Corpus as freeze does double against shields, useful for destroying Corpus being protected by shield Ospreys.
