Phobos has always been a highly contest area. Skirmishes between the tireless Grineer and Corpus factions occur in orbit and on the Martian moon surface. Unanswered questions about this natural satellite still remain as all research is endlessly delayed by war.

—Phobos Fragment

Phobos is a moon of Mars under Corpus control.

Phobos becomes accessible by defeating the Specter in the Phobos Junction on Mars after completing the required tasks.

The Assassination Target for Phobos is The Sergeant, located in the mission Iliad. The Sergeant drops the component blueprints for the Mag Warframe .

Phobos does not have a Tenno Relay.

  • Phobos is the first planet to unlock that has Plastids in its droptable.

TipsEdit

TriviaEdit

  • Phobos is named after the Greek personification of fear and one of the sons of Ares, who is Mars's Greek equivalent. It has a twin moon called Deimos (terror), which is currently not available in Warframe and there are no plans to add it.
    • From Update 9.5 to Update: Specters of the Rail, Phobos was depicted as a round planetoid in-game, as opposed to being irregularly-shaped in real life. It is widely believed to be a captured asteroid and is speculated to either collide with Mars or disintegrate within the next 50 million years.
    • The nodes on Phobos are named after actual named geological features of Phobos. Other than Monolith and Iliad, those in turn are named either after astronomers (e.g. Asaph Hall, who discovered Phobos) or after characters in Gulliver's Travels (as its author, Jonathan Swift, predicted the existence of Mars's moons).
    • The boss level, Iliad, is named after an ancient Greek epic poem, which tells of the battles and events during the Trojan War and of the quarrel between King Agamemnon and the Warrior Achilles, where Ares (father of Phobos) is a significant character.
  • This planet was unlocked as a reward for the community completing the Arid Fear Event. Much of the event involved the Grineer and the Corpus trying to hide the existence of Phobos from the Tenno.
  • Up until The Gradivus Dilemma, Phobos was the third planet in the game that was completely under the control of a given faction (besides the indigenous species), following the (then) Infested-controlled planets of Eris and Jupiter.
  • Phobos was the first planet to have an Assassination mission involving more than one entity, the second being the first phase of Lephantis.
  • Phobos is the only planet in which Research components do not drop.

MediaEdit

  • Captain Vor and Krill as seen in the mission lobby screen (before U19)
  • Vor and Kril during the opening cinematic (before U19)
  • Vor and Kril together during the fight (before U19)
  • Grineer asteroid base possibly of Deimos, Mars' other moon
  • Mining station that is mining into Phobos (message says 'Danger', obviously)
  • Important machine in the center of a cave, seems to be consuming massive amounts of power, what could it be?
  • What appears to be an artifact resembling a cat with Orokin rings on its head, found hidden in one of the extraction tiles.
