Oxium is a rare lighter than air alloy of Orokin origin.

–In-Game Description

Oxium is an uncommon component. Although dropped by the uncommon enemy unit Oxium Ospreys with a perfect drop rate, it can only be found in quantities of 1-3 and will only drop if the Osprey is killed before it destroys itself by charging against the player, an ally, or a wall.

Oxium can also be found in the Orokin Void by destroying canisters, and as rare loot in Corpus canisters.

Gathering TipsEdit

These tips are based on opinion and may not be true. They should be viewed as advice and not solid fact. Keep in mind that factions on nodes change over time with Invasions, so farming locations will change over time.

As the Oxium Ospreys always explode on death, regardless if killed or selfdestructed, Nekros' Desecrate cannot be used to farm Oxiums.

  • Playing Corpus Defense, Survival and Mobile Defense missions can yield 15-30 Oxium per run.
    • Baal on Europa seems to be the best known place to farm Oxium since the update.
  • Post update 14, these nodes no longer spawn ospreys and therby are not recommended for Oxium farming:
    • Sedna
      • Kappa frequently yielded 20-55 Oxium
      • Camenae frequently yielded 40-60 Oxium in a 15 round defense. An Osprey spawns almost every round.
    • Venus
      • E.Gate produced 1 Osprey every 10-15m. Longer runs yield more chances to get Oxium
      • Venera produced 20-40 Oxium every 15 waves. Oxium Ospreys spawn quite frequently on this node.

NotesEdit

  • As of update 12, Oxium is used in both research and construction of the Zephyr warframe
    • For Moon Clan, 20000 Oxium is needed for the warframe blueprint, followed by 2000 each for its components, amounting to a total of 26000 needed to complete the warframe research.
    • For Mountain Clan, 6000 Oxium is needed for the warframe blueprint, followed by 600 for the components, amounting to a total of 7800 needed to complete the warframe research.
    • For Storm Clan, 2000 Oxium is needed for the warframe blueprint, followed by 200 each for its components, amounting to a total of 2600 needed to complete the warframe research.
    • For Shadow Clan, 600 Oxium is needed for the warframe blueprint, followed by 60 each for its components, amounting to a total of 780 needed to complete the warframe research.
    • For Ghost Clan, 200 Oxium is needed for the warframe blueprint, followed by 20 each for its components, amounting to a total of 260 to complete the warframe research.
  • Due to it being dropped by a specific enemy and not a planet-specific drop, it cannot be obtained by using Extractors.
  • Strangely, Feral Kubrows have a chance of dropping oxium, this may be a bug.
