Warframe: How to Acquire Nidus Prime

Here is what you'll need to obtain the infested bad boy along with build requirements

by Elliott Gatica

Nidus Prime is finally out in Warframe, and fans are eagerly jumping on the hype train of this infested wonder. He harnesses the ravenous power of the infested, allowing him to lock down the battlefield, provide immense damage output, and even tank lethal damage. Nidus in his original form was already a force to be reckoned with, but now as a Prime, he’ll deliver even more havoc to his enemies.

Nidus Prime sports higher base stats compared to his original counterpart, making him a lot more tanky and a caster than he already was.

Farming Nidus Prime

Nidus Prime has been out as of Update 30.7, and his relics can be farmed in one of two ways. The first way, which many players are familiar with, is by playing endless missions, getting cache rewards in missions like Spy and Sabotage, or through syndicate rewards.

However, with the inclusion of Operation: Plague Star, his relics can be farmed in this event through killing the Hemocyte boss. Stack up on the relics here while you can, the event runs through September 30!
