Being a part of the Corpus can be rough, but that does not mean they are without hope. For among them lives a legend. A man who fears nothing. An unyielding hero against those who would stand in the way of Profit.
His name is John Prodman.

, Adam Ma, former Community Editorial Coordinator

John Prodman is a rarely-encountered enemy in The Index[1]. Similar to Clem, Prodman has his roots as a meme within the WARFRAME community.

According to the description of his autograph, he is an employee of Anyo Corp, and was recently awarded "Employee of the Month".

Origins Edit


On March 1, 2014, A user by the name of Llyssa posted a thread entitled " The Most Badass Ever In Warframe"[2], where during an Infested Invasion, Llyssa documented a Prod Crewman taking on Phorid and despite all odds, surviving the encounter. Other players noted the Crewman's bravery and subsequently exaggerated his accomplishments, and ultimately christened the lone Crewman John Prodman.

Over time Digital Extremes grew aware of John's existence, and has since canonized the crewman in a blog post on the official site [3]. In the post, the developers talk about John's exploits, such as being the first crewman to replace Zanuka as the Corpus's Employee of the Month, and turning down a Detron in exchange for his trusty Prova (and if need be, his fists). Digital Extremes has also stated that John is the Prod Crewman present in promotional videos involving the Corpus, typically those with a humorous slant.

As an Enemy Edit

John Prodman can only be found as an enemy unit in The Index: Endurance, regardless of what group of Brokers the players are currently facing or the investment risk tier the players chose beforehand. He will always appear after one hour, but only shows up once per mission with further hours not triggering more appearances. When defeated, he drops an autographed poster[4]. Further research is required to any abilities he has.
