Rising from the ocean depths, Hydroid harnesses the power of water to a devastating effect.

This is Hydroid, a deadly mystery from the depths.

Whether the seas or the stars, Tenno, Hydroid takes a foreboding command of the battlefield.

Release Date: April 10th, 2014

With the wrathful seas at his command, Hydroid lurks beneath raging tides to plunge his foes into the abyss. Unleashing salvos of cannon barrage and tentacled ocean horrors to rend foes asunder, Hydroid is reminiscent of the age of corsairs. Hydroid surfaced in Update 13.0.

Trivia

  • Hydroid is derived from the Greek "Hydro"  meaning Water and the suffix "-oid"  meaning 'Of similar form to', likely alluding to his ability to transform into water. It is also a life stage for species of the Hydrozoa class of jellyfish.
  • Hydroid was claimed by the Development Team to have been inspired from the theme of pirates and seems to resemble Davy Jones from The Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise.
  • Hydroid is the first Warframe to use self-degrading Argon Crystal for construction in the Foundry.
  • Hydroid is one of the few Warframes that has visible "eye-spots" on his helmet.
  • Hydroid is the only Warframe that has a maximum shield capacity at 989 with maxed Redirection and Vigor mods. 
  • Hydroid is one of two Warframes with powers capable of ignoring enemy armor, along with Ash's Blade Storm.
    • Hydroid was the first Warframe to have Finishing Damage abilities, which is the only damage type – barring Toxin b Toxin and to an extent, Gas b Gas damage's proc – that can bypass shields entirely. Ash with his revamped Blade Storm was the second.
  • Despite the blueprint not having a Mastery Requirement, players will need to be Mastery Rank 5 in order to build Hydroid.
