An Infested pet bred from the Helminth Cyst


The Helminth Charger is a pet, similar to a Kubrow, obtainable after interacting with Helminth.


24 hours after being infected by Helminth or another player, a pink cyst will appear on the infected Warframe's neck. Six days after its appearance the cyst will be fully grown (a single tendril will be visible, emerging from the follicle) and ready to drain.

While using the infected Warframe, the player can select "Begin Incubation" under the Kubrow Breeding tab. There, a new Helminth Cyst option will appear at the bottom of the Incubator menu (see picture) via a button marked "drain". (This will consume an egg as well) Clicking this will bring up a confirmation dialog, after which the incubation process will proceed as it would for any other pet.



  • More than one Warframe per player can have the cysts.
  • Be warned: After curing a cyst on a Warframe, that Warframe will be unable to be infected with the Helminth virus again.
  • If one chooses to remove the cyst by sitting in the chair, the cyst can not be used to breed the Helminth Charger.
  • Prior to Update 20.0, the pet shared the same model of that of an Infested Charger that is however attached to a Kubrow skeleton. As such, the model often stretched awkwardly and cosmetics don't properly fit.
    • The Charger model is purchasable in the Marketplace for Credits6410,000.
  • The natural color of the Helminth Charger may not come out as the expectation photo and it is completely random. The color, however, can still be customized by purchasing the Kubrow Gene-Masking Kits in the Market (Credits64100,000 for the basic one) and/or the Kavat Gene-Masking Kits (Credits64160,000).
  • Players must complete the Howl of the Kubrow quest before using the Helminth Charger in a mission.
  • Players cannot get imprints from Helminth Chargers.


  • After the Helminth Charger has matured for combat, the player may notice they cannot equip the pet due to a "Missing Collar" lock. Simply exit Warframe and re-login, or entering any mission node will allow the Charger to be equipped.


  • The first model of the Helminth Charger prior to Update 20.
  • Nidus style Helminth Charger after update 20
  • Rhino and Helminth Charger
