I Have a Nidus, and I’m Not Afraid to Use It!


No deep brooding post today. Just alien Infestation everywhere.

Holy hell, he is so much fun.

Nidus is the Infested Warframe – all his abilities involve shooting, spreading, or otherwise controlling various tentacled Infestation.

He is the first warframe I own to be primarily an ability caster – that is, he can get away with not relying on weapons much and instead let his abilities do the killing.

It takes some time to build up to seriously awesome power. Doing an ordinary mission with him felt like it kept his power level low.

Soloing an endless dark sector survival mission is a whole ‘nother story.

It’s going to take some time to figure out how to take him further with forma and the correct mods and all that, but for now, decimating packs of enemy Infested is ludicrously fun.

One thought on “I Have a Nidus, and I’m Not Afraid to Use It!

  1. Nidus has several good builds. The current “favorite” one includes the Umbral mods, though with the new “Adaptation” mod that recently came out, there are new variants coming out that use that instead, as the defense it provides works better than a bit of extra health from the Umbrals.

    Biggest thing to remember with him is that for “tankiness” you want to always have his #3 on a “heavy” mob so that it will survive the damage redirect for the duration of the skill, then building and keeping a minimum of 15 mutation stacks so that you self-resurrect if you happen to actually die. And then of course gathering everything with your #2 and blasting it with your #1 to gain MOAR STACKS!!!!! 😉
