Duviri is here! The precise where and when has been hard to pinpoint, but Drifter’s time in Duviri is finally becoming clear. Start The Duviri Paradox Quest to experience a never-ending spiral of life, death, and rebirth at the hands of Dominus Thrax. All Tenno, including those brand new to Warframe, will be able to dive into The Duviri Paradox straight away. After quest completion, there are three Game Modes for experiencing Duviri:

  • THE CIRCUIT: Focused on Warframe combat within the Undercroft, The Circuit revolves around endless gameplay objectives in the Undercroft with rotating weekly rewards. Pick your difficulty and reward track, complete rounds to fill out the track, and claim rewards such as new Arcanes, Incarnon Genesis, or even blueprints to build an entire Warframe!
  • THE DUVIRI EXPERIENCE: Duviri as it is meant to be played – the Open Landscape experience with a Spiral story, side activities, and open exploration. This game mode allows a Tenno to experience everything that Duviri has to offer.
  • THE LONE STORY: A streamlined version of Duviri with only the Spiral story for Tenno looking to face the Orowyrm’s fury as fast as possible.

When exploring Duviri’s mind-bending reality, you can expect to encounter:

  • SPIRALS: Duviri is at the whim of Dominus Thrax’ Spiral, with each Spiral featuring its own story, unique threats, and changing environment for the citizens of Duviri.
  • DECREES: Specialized Drifter and Warframe upgrades unique to each Duviri visit. Completing activities in Duviri grants a choice between randomized upgrades, improving your chances against the challenges found in Duviri and The Undercroft.
  • DRIFTER MELEE: Drifter has taken up melee weapons to fight back. Block incoming attacks to parry for a quick strike, or take Dax down hard with a Power Strike.
  • THE UNDERCROFT: The Undercroft hosts familiar warriors of various origins, rewriting Duviri’s rules to allow Warframe combat.
  • DRIFTER INTRINSICS: Enhance the Drifter within Duviri with permanent upgrades aimed to improve Combat, Riding, Opportunity, and Endurance.
  • KAITHE: A customizable mount able to carry you above, below, and through the many islands of Duviri.
  • SIDE ACTIVITIES: Duviri has significantly more to experience, including new enemies, Orowyrm boss fights, plus a wealth of side activities including Maw Feeding, Shawzin playing, Komi, with many others to find!

The Duviri Paradox update comes with far more to discover beyond the bounds of Dominus Thrax’ imagined reality. There are new Incarnon Geneses, Arcanes, and Cosmetics which can all be used across Warframe:

  • INCARNON GENESES: Imbue your weapons with the power of the Void, unlocking specialized upgrades. Masters of the Steel Path Circuit can earn these to breathe new power into a pool of old favorites.
  • NEW MELEE WEAPONS: Drifters and Warframes alike can use five new Melee Weapons coming with Duviri! Take down the Orowyrm to earn Pathos Clamps and use them to unlock these new Weapons and their Blueprints.
  • NEW DELUXE SKINS & CUSTOMIZATIONS: Community artist concepts turned into reality, the Baruuk Doan and Wisp Somnium Collections are here! Look out for new Drifter Transference Suits, Drifter facial hair, and Visage Inks available on the Market for Platinum.

Duviri needs you, Drifter. Dominus Thrax controls the Spiral and only you can break the cycle. Each new Spiral is a chance to discover the power you hold and bring change – bring color – to Duviri. Challenge Dominus Thrax and earn your escape from this endless cycle.

The Duviri Paradox is available to every Tenno, whether they’ve been playing for 10 years or are just starting today.

It’s time to enter Duviri and break the never-ending spiral!

The Duviri Paradox is a Mainline Update, meaning that everything the team has been working on since the launch of Citrine’s Last Wish earlier this year is in this update (with the obvious exception of content that is not ready to be released). It is very likely, as it is with all Mainline updates, that things can slip through the cracks so we will be looking at reports here for any fixes and changes for follow-up Hotfixes to come.

Duviri as it was intended to be played. STORY (Spiral) and SIDE OBJECTIVES together. You will be given a series of tasks through a guided story featuring the many colorful characters residing in the Paradox.


Just the SPIRAL’s story. Duviri devoid of all side objectives. Focus all of your attention on the story-telling as it happens in real time!

The Lone Story offers the same challenges and rewards as The Duviri Experience for completing the story stages.

A brand new Warframe-only gamemode. Battle through an endless chain of missions in the Undercroft with rotating weekly rewards. Read the full “The Circuit” section to learn more!

Each visit to Duviri via The Lone Story, The Duviri Experience, and The Circuit begins from TESHIN’S CAVE.


Teshin’s Cave is where you make preparations for the challenges before you. Unlike other open landscapes, it is not a hub. It is just as much a part of Duviri as anything else, and acts as the true beginning to your journey within Duviri.

Here you will be able to select a LOADOUT, invest in DRIFTER INTRINSICS, select/purchase a DRIFTER MELEE WEAPON, and customize your Drifter and KAITHE.


Upon entering Teshin’s Cave, you will be presented with randomized Warframe and Weapon options. These options are pulled directly from your Arsenal, and at least 1 of the options from each category (Warframe, Primary Weapon, Secondary Weapon, and Melee Weapon) will be something you do not own*.

*Unowned Warframes and Weapons will always be the base version. This means only Excalibur, not Excalibur Prime; only the Hek, not the Vaykor Hek or Kuva Hek.

Unless of course you do in fact own everything – you go getter! In a similar fashion, if you have less than 10 unowned Warframes, those Warfames have a lower chance of appearing in the Cave to prevent repeated options across each Spiral. A similar methodology is applied to Weapon selections as well.

The most powerful version (based on stats and bonus effects) of the Warframe and Weapon variants you own will be offered in Teshin’s Cave (e.g. Hildryn Prime vs. Hildryn if you own both).

At the base rank of the Drifter Opportunity Intrinsics, 3 Warframe options, one of each Weapon type (Primary, Secondary, and Melee), and an additional weapon of any type are offered. Unlocking certain Opportunity Drifter Intrinsic Ranks will increase the number of Warframe and Weapon options available to choose from. Read the “Drifter Intrinsics” section below to learn more!

Each new Spiral means a new set of randomized options become available, granting you new opportunities to take on whatever the mad king throws at you. Successfully extracting from a mission in Duviri (either by defeating the Orowyrm and using the Portal, or by selecting “Extract” in the Circuit Stage Completion Screen) will also randomize the equipment available in Teshin’s Cave on your next visit.

Teshin’s Cave provides safe ground for you to test and practice all of the equipment available – you are not bound to any of your selections until you leave the Cave via the portal to the Duviri landscape, so play around as much as you like before committing! Swapping your Warframe or using the “Configure” context action will refill its Energy.
1. Select Your Warframe:
A most important choice is to be made – select from the Warframe options available to level the battlefield with their unique strengths and abilities.

Teshin has a list of Warframes specially curated for Tenno who are Mastery Rank 3 and below. The following are intended to teach the foundations of the way of the Warframe:

  • Frost
  • Mirage
  • Nezha
  • Oberon
  • Protea
  • Rhino
  • Saryn
  • Styanax
  • Wukong
  • Volt
  • Excalibur
  • Mag

Increasing your Mastery beyond Rank 3 by exploring the Origin System, and ranking up your equipment will unlock the full list of potential Warframes that can appear in Teshin’s Cave.

You can learn about each of the Warframes available by approaching them and using the “Configure” context action. Here you see their stats and learn about their passive and abilities by hovering over each ability icon.

2. Select Your Weapons:
After selecting your Warframe, the next step becomes available – choosing which Primary, Secondary, and Melee Weapons to bring into the fray.

You can view the stats of the Weapons available by approaching them and using the “Configure” context action.

Modular weapons (Zaws & Kitguns) are not eligible to appear in Teshin’s Cave, as well as Heavy Weapons (since they require Gear Wheel access to spawn in mission).

Warframe & Weapon Appearance:
Warframes and Weapons you own use the Appearance Config A from your Arsenal, while those you don’t own are set to their default. To change the appearance of the Weapons you own, simply return to the Dormizone or Orbiter and customize Appearance Config A via the Arsenal.

(TIP: You can drag Config names to change their order in both your Appearance and Upgrade menus)

In-Game Market – Teshin’s Cave Offerings:
If you wish to procure the items shown in Teshin’s Cave, there is a Duviri-specific “Teshin’s Cave Offerings” in-game Market tab that contains the Warframes and Weapons that appeared in your last visit to the Cave.

From here you can gain instant access to these items by purchasing them with Platinum or learn about how you can earn them by exploring the Origin System!

3. Select Your Mod Configurations
A crucial element to both Warframe and Weapons alike – power upgrades! Mods are quintessential to increasing your equipment’s effectiveness against enemies.

Mod Configurations can be selected for your Warframe and Weapons by using the “Configure” context action when approaching them in Teshin’s Cave.

Here you are able to choose from all of your existing Configs* for equipment that you own. DEFAULT MOD CONFIGS are also available and are the default option for unowned equipment. Configs with 40+ used Mod Capacity will appear first, instead of the Default Mod Config.

*Configs must have at least 1 Mod equipped to appear as an option.

Existing Mod Configs available in Teshin’s Cave mirror those from your Arsenal, but also apply the following upgrades, such as:

  • Arcanes (tied to the specific Config it was equipped)
    • Arcane Revives: In addition to the revives granted to Tenno who have unlocked Rank 3 (Determination) and 8 (Tenacity) of the Endurance Intrinsics, revives from Warframe Arcanes also apply to the total count usable in Duviri!
  • Helminth Infused Abilities (tied to the specific Config it was assigned to)
  • Helminth Invigorations (applied to all Configs)
  • Archon Shards (applied to all Configs)

Default Mod Configs:
Default Mod Configs are Mod presets for each of the Warframes and Weapons that appear in Teshin’s Cave. Each and every Warframe and Weapon have their very own curated combination of Mods based on their unique traits, strengths, and weaknesses. These are meant to be mid-game builds for newer players to use, but well-equipped Tenno can use their own builds instead if they choose to.

Warframes have 6 guaranteed Ability and Survivability Mods (Flow, Continuity, Streamline, Stretch, Intensify, and Vitality) and 2 Mods based on a Warframe’s specific Health, Shield, and Armor stats (e.g. Redirection, Steel Fiber, etc.).

Weapons have 3 guaranteed base Mods (like Serration, Split Chamber, and Vigilante Armaments for Primaries, or Pressure Point, Fury and Reach for Melees), 3 Mods determined by the weapon’s stat strengths (Critical Chance/Damage, Status Effect, etc.) and 2 Mods based on Damage type (Physical and Elemental Damage).

Damage mods try to match the weapon’s existing strength, so for instance the flamethrower Ignis will only get Heat Damage Mods. There are specific situations where we override certain Mods, like not equipping Flow on Hildryn or Lavos, or excluding fire rate Mods on weapons like the Tonkor or Exergis.

Unowned Warframes and weapons use Default Mods exclusively (which can be viewed by using the “Configure” button). The “Configure” button will also show you details about the Warframe, such as their stats and abilities, so that you can get familiar with them before heading out into Duviri!

You can swap between Mod Configs at any point in the Cave by simply re-approaching the pedestal where it spawned and use the “Configure” context action.

To customize the Mods in your Mod Configs of owned equipment, return to the safety of your Orbiter or Dormizone to access the Arsenal. Any and all changes applied to the Mod Configs in your Arsenal will appear in Teshin’s Cave for the Warframe and Weapons you own.

If you thrive in the unknown, you can also jump into Duviri without making any equipment selections. Doing so will simply randomize a chosen loadout for you (including their Mod Configs).


  • Changed the Synth Charge Mod to now apply to the following weapons:
    • Sepulcrum
      • The damage bonus for Synth Charge does not apply to its alt-fire, as it uses the entire magazine in one shot.
    • Pyrana
    • Pyrana Prime
    • Kuva Brakk
    • Zakti Prime
    • Tenet Detron
  • Changed the Shawzin default controller bindings – the previous bindings made it considerably harder to use Shawzin compared to keyboard. If you wish to change them back to their previous state, you can do so in the “Customize Controller” option:
    • Sky Fret: Left D-Pad (was L1)
    • Water Fret: Right D-Pad (was R2)
    • Earth Fret: Down D-Pad (was R1)
    • Songs: R2 (was Up D-Pad)
    • Change Instrument: R3 (was Left D-Pad)
  • Changed how Dormizone invites interact with Squads:
    • Inviting Tenno to your squad while in the Dormizone no longer forces Clients to load into the Host’s Dormizone. Instead, they can now accept a squad invite from where they are without needing to migrate over. In the chance that someone does want to join someone else’s Dormizone to show off their lavish decorating, they can do so by selecting the new option “Invite to Dormizone”.
    • Added a prompt to invite all squad members if you’d like to exit the Dormizone into the Crysalith if desired.
    • Fixed being unable to accept invites from your Dormizone.
  • Made the following changes to Mirage’s Sleight of Hand with the Explosive Legerdemain Augment Mod in order to solve major performance issues that would occur when rapidly casting Sleight of Hand with the Augment Mod equipped while Hall of Mirrors was active:
    • Explosion radius is no longer affected by Mods. It is now always 15m.
    • Proximity mine triggers no longer replicate to Clients (this was a particularly brutal performance issue origin for Clients in squads where the Host was casting Sleight of Hands with Hall of Mirrors often).
    • Proximity mines now have a 20 second lifespan unless it is attracting an enemy, in which case it is paused. Only one mine can attract a particular enemy at a time.
      • The lifespan previously used to be extended if an enemy entered its trigger range, but if they never reached the explosion (e.g. something else killed them first) the lifespan could be extended indefinitely, causing strain on performance when stacking mines with multiple Sleight of Hand casts.
    • Optimized the proximity mines when cast in the dark.
    • Optimized the proximity mine triggers when there are multiple placed with Hall of Mirrors. Now there will be one trigger per group of mines, since they are close enough to one another. The trigger will swap to a new mine if the latter is destroyed.
    • Also fixed flickering on her shaders.
  • In addition to the 50% of Affinity gained being granted to Warframe, the remaining 50% while using the Parazon is now distributed to the weapon you had equipped before the Parazon Mercy kill started.
  • Updated all Warframe descriptions!
    • Since this will be the first time many players encounter the Warframes (via Teshin’s Cave), we updated their descriptions to provide practical explanations of playstyles (without sacrificing the lore tidbits).
  • The following weapons can now be found in their corresponding categories in the Arsenal when searching using the tag “Battery”:
    • Basmu
    • Bubonico
    • Tenet Cycron
    • Cycron
    • Flux Rifle
    • Fulmin
    • Tenet Plinx
    • Plinx
    • Shedu
  • Changed Incarnon Weapons’ “DAMAGE” stat to “Incarnon Form” when viewing the Incarnon Form damage values in the Arsenal.
  • Added Mission Tips to the Risk Investment selection screen for The Index.
  • Updated the Drifter mini-map icon.
  • Made slight adjustments to the rendering of Caliban’s Cranion Helmet to be more accurate for reflections.
  • Made some adjustments to lighting in the Cetus Temple during the Vor’s Prize quest.
  • Updated the rendering for the water FX on the Grav Lifter Factory decoration.
  • Updated “The Hunt is On” Nightwave Act description to say “Pick up Syndicate Medallions” instead of “Find” as it requires you to interact with them in order for it to count towards the Act.
  • Updated the on-hover Credits and Platinum icon descriptions to be more informative on what each currency is used for.


  • Made several micro-optimizations to base game code.
  • Made a micro-optimization to loading times and streaming.
  • Made several optimizations related to code responsible for HUD processing.
  • Made a micro-optimization to memory footprint in several levels.
  • Made several micro-optimizations related to script performance.
  • Made improvements to how animation data is stored.

  • Fixed loading hitches when swapping default customizations between Male and Female Operator.
  • Fixed the game becoming unresponsive when:
    • Selecting a color picker or an item from the in-game Market selection screen while in Railjack customization.
    • Selecting chat, viewing a player profile and then selecting exiting from both Menus.



  • Made memory optimizations for PS4.
  • Potential fixes towards tearing on PS5.
    • For those of you that have noticed tearing on your PS5 (a noticeable divide on your screen when frames are rendered out of order, causing a notable horizontal line on your screen) we have submitted a potential fix for these issues.
  • Fixed an OOM crash that could occur if you hovered over every ability in the Helminth menu and activated too many video popups within 60 seconds
  • Made systemic micro-optimizations to memory footprint, load times, and PlayStation rendering performance
  • Fixed PS4 players receiving achievement pop-ups for PC achievements.
  • Fixed rare slowdown related to cloth rendering on Nidus Prime.


  • Fixed the following issues from the Citrine’s Last Wish “Known Issues” list:
    • Fixed primary target not receiving any bonus Status Effects from the Secondary Encumber Arcane while using a chaining weapon (i.e. Atomos).
    • Fixed the Secondary Encumber Arcane unintentionally counting staggering as a Status Effect, leading to many unintended Effects being applied.
      • This Arcane is intended to trigger only from Physical and Elemental Status Effects i.e. Status types which show on an enemy’s health bar.
    • Fixed many mods that previously worked on Exalted Weapons not correctly applying, for example (but not exclusively) Internal Bleeding and Hunter Munitions when installed on Ivara’s Artemis Bow, or Life Strike not working when installed on Exalted Melee Weapons. Valkyr’s Hysteria not having life steal was in the same category.
    • Fixed casting many Warframe abilities interrupting aim gliding and forcing you to land.
    • Fixed Battacor requiring all 3 charges to use its alt fire instead of the intended 1 or 2 charges to scale the damage.

    • Fixed Volt’s Electric Shield and Vazarin’s Guardian Shell not preventing self-staggering with explosive weapons, as reported here:’s-last-wish/
      • This also fixes the Propa Scaffold Amp part bypassing Electric Shield and Guardian Shell, causing the Operator to self-stagger.
  • Fixed mouse sensitivity being tied to controller sensitivity settings instead of mouse and keyboard sensitivity settings.
  • Fixed Arcane Steadfast not working consistently on ability casts when equipped on Vauban.
  • Fixed Garuda being unable to perform Melee Finishers with her Talons in missions that disable Melee weapons.
  • Fixed major performance issues occurring when rapidly casting Mirage’s Sleight of Hand with the Explosive Legerdemain Augment Mod equipped while Hall of Mirrors is active. In order to solve the performance issues, the following changes were made to Explosive Legerdemain:
  • Explosion radius is no longer affected by Mods. It is now always 15m.
  • Optimized the proximity mines when cast in the dark.
  • Optimized the proximity mine triggers when there are multiple placed with Hall of Mirrors. Now there will be one trigger per group of mines, since they are close enough to one another. The trigger will swap to a new mine if the latter is destroyed.
  • Proximity mine triggers no longer replicate to Clients (this was a particularly brutal performance issue origin for Clients in squads where the Host was casting Sleight of Hands with Hall of Mirrors often).
  • Proximity mines now have a 20 second lifespan unless it is attracting an enemy, in which case it is paused. Only one mine can attract a particular enemy at a time.
  • The lifespan previously used to be extended if an enemy entered its trigger range, but if they never reached the explosion (e.g. something else killed them first) the lifespan could be extended indefinitely, causing strain on performance when stacking mines with multiple Sleight of Hand casts.
  • Also fixed flickering on her shaders.
  • Fixed certain bosses being permanently stun locked by the Proboscis Cernos stun effect.
  • Fixed exposing an enemy to a Viral Status Effect just as the last Viral Status Effect on the enemy is about to expire, and while there is a Heat Status Effect on the enemy, can lead to the enemy becoming invincible.
  • Fixed only firing the Staticor with one hand as opposed to the intentional two hands.

  • Fixed K-Drive randomly doing a spin instead of the tricks you’re trying to do.
