Operation: Plague Star

Also premiering today is the return of the popular Operation: Plague Star event.  The event runs for a limited time only through Thursday, September 30. Players will rally together to defend the Plains of Eidolon on Earth against Infested lifeforms before they make their way to Cetus. Operation: Plague Star will feature a slew of anticipated player rewards, including the new Ghoulsaw; the cruelest of weapons built for the crudest of Grineer soldiers. Available only through participating in Operation: Plague Star, the Ghoulsaw features a multitude of aerial attacks, slide attacks, and heavy-hitting combos.  During this three-week event, players participating in Operation: Plague Star will also have the chance to receive Nidus Prime Relics in drops.  This adds an additional bonus path to earning Nidus Prime in Warframe.

The latest Warframe update also introduces the Revenant Mephisto Collection to the Warframe Market.  This is a unique alternative skin for the Revenant Warframe and brings some changes to Yareli’s movement ability.  It introduces a foundational change to Merulina Dashing and Stat changes to Yareli’s abilities across the board, including:
