CODEX Entry: NyxCodexbw
Mind control and psychic attacks make Nyx a very dangerous foe. Her ability to reach into enemy consciousness and manipulate their behavior can turn the tide of the battle.

Nyx is a psychic-themed Warframe released in Update 6. Her abilities allow her to disrupt movement and coordination within enemy ranks, making her a formidable ally in battle.

Trivia

  • Jade was this warframe's name before it was renamed with Nyx.
  • Nyx is also the name of the Greek goddess of the night.
  • Apart from the helmet and gender, the visual design of this Warframe is almost identical to Excalibur.
  • During pre-alpha stages of the game DE tried out alternative genders to Warframes; the Nyx model was originally intended to be the female variant of Excalibur. However, when the idea was finally scrapped, the female Excalibur was given its own powers and thus turned into Nyx. During the time when Nyx was the female Excalibur the helmet was not the same, instead it was very similar to the current Excalibur helmet and can be seen when obtaining the Menticide helmet. Source
  • Nyx is similar in design to Nadia Sudek's Nemesis armor from Dark Sector.
  • The silhouette Nyx's Chaos projects in front of affected enemies used to resemble what seems to be a female variant of the Excalibur warframe, just what Nyx was in early development stages. It can also be seen here around 0:32. This was recently patched to show a silhouette of the current nyx.
  • If you use Absorb right before the extraction cutscene plays you will be meditating during extraction.

Nyx Mind Control2 Mind Control Energy: 25Energy small Power #: 1 MindControlMod
Nyx invades the psyche of a target, confusing enemies and making them fight for the Tenno cause.
Equip Cost:
0 / 1 / 2 / 3
Power Strength:
N/A
Power Range:
20 / 40 / 50 / 50 m
Power Duration:
15 / 20 / 25 / 30 s

  • Nyx fully inhabits the mind of an enemy, forcing them to fight for her team for 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 seconds.
    • Duration is affected by Power Duration mods.
    • Target is initially stunned for 2 seconds.
    • Game-wide limitations prevent targeting an enemy more than 50 meters away.
    • Only one target may be controlled at a time.
  • Mind-Controlled targets use their abilities to the benefit of the Tenno and to the detriment of their former allies. For example;
    • The mines dropped by Mine Ospreys will not hurt Nyx and her allies, but will hurt the Osprey's former allies.
    • The heal pulse of Ancient Healers restores 100 Health to Nyx and her allies. It also restores the health of the Cryopod.
    • Mind-Controlled Security Cameras will ignore everything and never go into the alerted state. Mind-Controlled Turrets can behave unpredictably.(Mind controlling them will make them fight for you, but only when a camera activates them, meaning they can deactivate if the camera is destroyed/goes into the un-alerted state.)
    • Mind-Controlling a Shield Osprey will make it project shields on allies and defense objectives, although it is usually destroyed rather quickly. Gives a 200 shield buff and will instantly recharge shields on contact.
    • Mind-Controlled Capture target will stop running from Nyx's allies.
  • The Mind Control effect will not work on bosses. However the ability still applies a short duration stun.
  • Mind Control overrides the effect of Chaos on the selected target but will not be overridden by Chaos.
  • If the Mind Controlled enemy is killed by Nyx she will not receive any affinity.
  • Occasionally, armored Mind Controlled enemy may appear as he has no armor (yellow health bar is replaced by red health bar), the effect is purely visual, incoming damage is still reduced by armor.
  • Mind Controlling enemy Leaders will negate their Auras against you and your team for the duration. They will affect you positively instead.

Nyx Psychic Bolts2 Psychic Bolts Energy: 50Energy small Power #: 2 PsychicBoltsMod
Nyx launches a cluster of force bolts at enemies, using telekinesis to adjust flight patterns and seek nearby targets.
Equip Cost:
4 / 5 / 6 / 7
Power Strength:
50 / 100 / 150 / 200
Power Range:
50 m
Power Duration:
N/A

  • Launches 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 bolts of telekinetic energy which each deal 50 / 100 / 150 / 200 damage.
    • Targets enemies within 50 meters of the original cast location.
    • Press the zoom key after releasing the Bolts to make them all seek the nearest target. Using the skill while holding zoom works just as well.
  • The target of the bolts will be marked with a colored tint similar to the graphical effect of Mind Control. This seems to be nothing more than a visual indicator.
  • Each bolt resembles a pointy stone.

  • To prevent the bolts hitting obstructions in open-spaced areas, Psychic Bolts can be aimed into the air, where they will seek their own targets.

Nyx Chaos2 Chaos Energy: 75Energy small Power #: 3 ChaosMod
With a powerful psychic blast, Nyx causes mass hysteria on the battlefield by confusing all enemies to attack random factions.
Equip Cost:
6 / 7 / 8 / 9
Power Strength:
N/A
Power Range:
15 / 20 / 22 / 25 m
Power Duration:
10 / 15 / 20 / 25 s

  • Nyx causes enemies within 15 / 20 / 22 / 25 meters to perceive their allies as Tenno for 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 seconds. Affected enemies will indiscriminately attack whoever is closest for the duration.
    • Initially stuns enemies for 2 seconds.
  • Unlike Mind Control, enemies will target Tenno if they are too close and their attacks can still harm the team.
  • Affected enemies are given raised threat levels.
  • Can only be reused after current effect ends. The current effect can be ended prematurely by killing all affected enemies.
  • A psychic vision of Nyx is visible on affected units, reflecting how enemies perceive each other.
  • This ability will stun bosses but have no other effect on them.
  • Enemies killed by their allies while under Chaos will not yield affinity.
  • Shield ospreys will discontinue to project shields and simply close up and fly around until the effect is over, and unaffected Shield Ospreys will not shield affected enemies.
  • Ancient Healers will still emit healing pulses.
  • Grants minor Conclave rating of 1 at all levels.
  • Makes enemy Leader's auras negatively impact everyone, allied or enemy.
    • Example: Ice leader aura will slow anyone in range

  • This ability will help you a LOT against large numbers of enemies, especially in the Orokin tilesets.

Nyx Absorb2 Absorb Energy: 100Energy small Power #: 4 AbsorbMod
Nyx absorbs all incoming damage and channels that collected energy into an explosive radial discharge.
Equip Cost:
10 / 11 / 12 / 13
Power Strength:
800 / 900 / 1000 / 1500 (minimum)
Power Range:
5 / 7 / 8 / 10 m
Power Duration:
5 / 7 / 8 / 10 s

  • Nyx enters a meditative state for 5 / 7 / 8 / 10 seconds, becoming completely immune to all damage and forms of crowd-control such as knockdown/energy drain etc. After the duration ends, all damage which would have been done to Nyx is dealt as damage to every enemy in a 5 / 7 / 8 / 10 meter explosion of psychic energy. This explosion does a minimum of 800 / 900 / 1000 / 1500 damage.
    • Power Strength affects the minimum damage but does not affect the absorbed damage.
  • Raised Threat Level while ability is active.
  • Damage hits enemies behind walls or cover.
  • Enemies caught in the explosion are ragdolled.
  • Absorbed damage is visible as particles of light traveling into Nyx from roughly around an attack's impact point.
    • Enemies which attack other targets instead of Nyx from inside the Absorb bubble will produce particles but will not contribute damage.
  • Shields are restored while in the absorb state, whether Nyx is being attacked or not.

  • It is not advisory to use this skill with the sentinel Shade. Shade will cloak Nyx during the Absorb period most of the time, whether the enemy is crowded around Nyx or not. As such, no damage will be absorbed as the enemy cannot see Nyx. During solo, the skill works fine still, as there are no teammates to draw enemy attention away.
  • This ability is a good candidate to combo Maximized Power Efficiency and Maximized Power Strength with if playing solo. When combined, the ability will:
    • Take 4 seconds to execute.
    • Cost 65 energy.
    • Deal 3,435 damage to targets within 10 meters.
    • Ragdoll all enemies, throwing them backwards.
