400 / 600 / 800 / 1200 (absorbed damage)
Power Range:
Power Duration:

  • Grants 400 / 600 / 800 / 1200 Ferrite Armor-based hitpoints. This is increased by Power Strength.
    • Enemy weapons that deal mostly Puncture damage will deplete the health of the power more quickly than other damage types (Refer to Ferrite Armor).
  • Rhino does not take any damage to health or shields until the ability's hitpoints are drained.
  • Rhino regenerates shields while Iron Skin is active.
  • Ignores all crowd control and debuffs such as stuns, poison and energy drains.
    • Does not block the crowd control effect of the Nauseous Crawler's special ability.
  • Duration lasts until depleted.
  • Can be activated while sliding, jumping, forward flipping, wall running or wall clinging.
  • Can be used to both block and pass through Corpus Laser Barriers and Grineer Sensor Bars.
  • 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.
  • As of Update 12.5, Iron Skin will appear in gold when casted by a Rhino Prime.
  • As of Update 13 casting 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 whilst channeling.

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 you manage to activate iron skin as you enter bleed out, you cannot die from bleed out and the bleed out timer will get stuck at zero
