Vauban Changes

Bounce Revisions
•    Vauban’s Bounce ability has been renamed to Minelayer.
•    Cycle through four deployable trap mines: Bounce, Trip Laser, Shred and Concuss!
•    Bounce: A deployable launch pad that can be attached to any surface. Use on enemies, squad members, or as a personal mobility tool.
•    Trip Laser: Creates a horizontal laser that trips/stumbles incoming enemies. 
•    Shred:  Landmine that flings enemies backwards while ragdolling them, stripping armour in the process. 
•    Concuss: Landmine that makes enemies deaf and confused.

Conclave Changes & Fixes

•    Reduced the damage of the Stradavar semi-auto fire in Conclave.


•    Warframe Mod text descriptions are receiving a visual overhaul! All Mod descriptions are being manually audited by our team to reflect appropriate status icons and uniform text case. Our goal is to bring consistency to all Mods, and so far almost every Mod has been updated to this format! We ask that you be patient with this change as we comb through Warframe’s extensive Mod collection. This change is purely visual to reduce overly verbose descriptions and discrepancy, and does not affect the functionality of these Mods in any way.

•    Improved load-times on low-end systems by around 5% and improved the responsiveness of the progress-bar.
•    Improved logging for launcher Dx11 auto-detection.
•    Added diagnostics to investigate problems where players get disconnected while on loading-screens.
•    Added diagnostics to investigate how some corrupt installs are evading detection and causing crashes.
•    Improved handling of computers with so little free memory that they cause the updater to crash.
•    Improved defenses against corrupt localization caches.
•    Improved rewards for the Tycho Orokin Moon Survival mission to now include T3 Void Keys.
•    Improved texture visibility for low-end PC’s with numerous display options turned off.
•    Improved the way that Landing Craft Decorations are loaded upon login or return. For those with an extensive Noggle collection, you will notice a smoother loading transition when returning to your Landing Craft. 
•    Imperator Vandal parts are now tradable!
•    The Ymir-Form Gemini Nikana Sheath and the Surt-Form Gemini Nikana Sheath can now be equipped on the Nikana, Nikana Prime and Dragon Nikana.
•    Loki Prime, Bo Prime, and Wyrm Prime have been removed from the Void and put into the Prime Vault until further notice.


•    Fixed crash that could occur if a slightly damaged cache were repaired on the fly.
•    Fixed the Ringers skin not working properly with Furax Wraith as per

•    Fixed Grineer Butchers playing their attack animation in slo-mo when in an unalerted state.
•    Fixed numerous incorrect tutorial transmission subtitles.
•    Fixed being able to walk through objects while in Wukong’s Cloud Walker ability.
•    Fixed Kela De Thaym having an incorrect sleep animation.
•    Fixed perpetually falling through a hole in the Orokin Moon Defense map.
•    Fixed a door not opening unless all squad members were present in the Orokin Moon Survival mission.
•    Fixed certain enemies continuing their slowed animation after being released from Vauban’s Bastille. 
•    Fixed Power Strength Mods (Blind Rage, Intensify, etc.) not applying very much to Vauban’s Vortex initial blast and damage over time.
•    Fixed the Sands of Inaros bundle diorama appearing blurry. 
•    Fixed Nezha’s Warding Halo ability appearing while aiming with a Sniper Rifle as per:

Hotfix 18.12.1: Vauban Prime

Conclave Changes & Fixes

  • Fixed casting Vauban’s Concuss grenade disabling your powers until you died in Conclaves.
  • Fixed seeing Vauban’s Minelayer power icons while loading into the Conclaves.


  • Tweaked Rathuum Judgement Points in an effort to allow players only fit for 'Easy' to progress with less repetition:

    • - Yam (Hard) 60 Judgement Points to access (still awards 25 Judgement Points)

  • Improved lighting on Grineer doors.
