Iron Skin
Rhino hardens his skin, insulating himself from all damage.
Strength:400 / 600 / 800 / 1200 (Ferrite armor)

  • Rhino hardens his skin to create a reinforcing buffer with 400 / 600 / 800 / 1200 Ferrite Armor-based hitpoints. While the buffer is active, Rhino becomes immune to damage and Status Effects. Iron Skin will expire when the buffer's hitpoints are depleted.
    • Total amount of hitpoints is affected by Power Strength.
    • Iron Skin acts as separate layer of protection over Rhino's health and shields. As such, Steel Fiber and abilities that increase Warframe armor do not affect Iron Skin as these only increase the damage resistance of Rhino's health.
    • Status effect immunity includes crowd-controlling effects such as Knockdowns and staggers. Energy drains from Ancient Disrupters, including the small amounts of energy they drain with each melee attack, are resisted. However, Eximus energy drains and Nauseous Crawler disables are not resisted by Iron Skin.
    • Much less effective against the Corpus faction, as their weapons deal mainly Puncture b Puncture damage, dealing 50% more damage to Rhino's Iron Skin and thus depleting it quicker.
      • The Corrupted faction in the void includes some units with Puncture b Puncture-based weapons as well.
  • Allows Rhino's shields to regenerate while active.
  • Protects Rhino's health from damage that bypasses shields, such as Toxin Damage.
  • Can be used to both block and pass through Corpus Laser Barriers and Grineer Sensor Bars.
  • Iron Skin will prevent you from deflecting bullets and blocking while in melee stance. It also does not allow you to perform any finishers initiated by blocking while channeling.
  • Using Iron Skin will not stop the health damage you take in the Vampire Challenge of Nightmare Mode. At the same time, it will not be drained automatically and can serve as a massive HP buffer.
    • When the air runs out in Survival, Iron skin will deplete almost immediately and recasting it will cause it to dissipate near instantly.
  • Trinity's Blessing damage reduction does not apply to Iron Skin.
  • Iron Skin's visual effects will appear gold when cast by Rhino Prime.
  • Can be activated while sliding, jumping, forward flipping, wall running or wall clinging.

Main article: Iron Shrapnel

Iron Shrapnel is a Warframe Augment Mod for Rhino's Iron Skin that when active allows it to be detonated by pressing the ability key (default 2), unleashing a radial AoE attack that deals a portion of its remaining health as Puncture b Puncture damage.

  • With a Streamline or Fleeting Expertise mod, Rhino can cast Iron Skin immediately after the first Energy Drain tick in order to give himself a "shield" of sorts.
    • Enemy weapons that deal mostly Puncture damage will deplete the health of the power more quickly than other damage types (Refer to Ferrite Armor).

Maximization is a form of specialization: mods may be blended to result in values that vary between the top-end limits listed here. Click any maximized link to learn how to build it.

  • Falling into an endless pit (or anywhere which causes the game to teleport you back up) or migrating hosts will completely remove Iron skin, regardless of the level it is at.
    • This gives a hint that falling into a pit does instantly destroy any sort of defense systems in the Warframe (health, shields, armor, etc.), although this applies to almost every beneficial abilities in the entire game.
  • If Rhino manages to activate Iron Skin as he falls backwards and enters bleedout, his bleedout timer will reach zero and he will never die. He will remain in bleedout until he is revived.
  • Procs from Blast b Blast damage can knockdown the player even if Iron Skin is still active.
