STRENGTH TO EVERYONE?! Enemy additions/concepts, 100+'s of units, weapons; lore and pictures [NEW: Corpus Lore FULL REMAKE]

Recommended Posts

Welcome to my thread!

Here you will find my "little" attempt at effectively remaking the many enemies of the Tenno. While this thread started out as "Grineer-only", I've decided to expand onto the other factions.

Welcome and enjoy, dozens of new units, characters, stories, locations, etc. await.

As it has become somewhat popular these days, here's a rough roadmap of things to come:

Quote

Grineer Roadmap:

Quote

1. Finishing Regicide (IS Trial rework); ongoing

2. Orokin Dig Site Kronos (6 new different activities, score-based leaderboard endless endurance mode included);

3. LoR 2.0/Operation Towerfall (complete PoE overhaul/expansion + Law of Retribution Trial);

4. Urania Depths (3-dimensional underwater open world + Grineer Zaws, Kitguns and Bashgears);

+ one secret expansion involving Knights.

Corpus Roadmap:

Quote

1. "Revitalisation Project" (making Corpus feel actually different from the Grins, meaning loadsa money changes); ongoing!

2. Adding a stuff ton of things so it feels fair compared to the Grineer, xD

3. ???

4. Grofit.

Infestation Roadmap:

Quote

1. Complete rework of bosses (weakest element in my opinion)

2. MOAR units!!!

3. Aaaaaah!!! Too many units!!!

4. Half on foot-Half Archwing Eris Orbit Open World: "The Cemetery"

Corrupted/Orokin Roadmap:

Quote

1. Remaking the entire faction to not be reskins.

2. The Origin, the Armageddon.

ViSoRi Roadmap:

Quote

1. Minds below the Dunes event/quest

2. 4-way Crossfire Mars Openworld ???

Disclaimer: I'll try to mix it up with the factions, instead of posting huge blocks of content for one. Expect chaos.

Now, don't expect me to really adhere to all that above stuff. I'm like Bioware with Anthem when it comes to keeping to schedules 😉.

Also, you've probably noticed I omitted the Sentients. 2 Reasons:

a) I don't really care about them;

b) Jado's got them covered anyway.

Old greeting:

Spoiler

 

I recently found out about this section of the forums (I have only come here for patch notes before) and it inspired me to make some of this concepting stuff myself. But, instead of making a new warframe or weapon, I decided to add some things to my favourite faction in the game (spoiler: It's the Grineer).

This is going to have 3 (maybe more, who knows) parts. I'll go until I have no more ideas, strap in bois. In each of them, I will create concepts for new units, bosses, lore and event-like stuff. Okay, I'll make some weapons as well.

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTES!:

Quote

Disclaimer: All lore that doesn't go with official materials or outright changes/removes canon is made like that on purpose. This is NOT supposed to be canon in any way, I am effectively making fanfiction here. Everything should be considered my headcanon, I do NOT make these concepts to be realistically put into the game.

Small, but potentially important note: This thread is best viewed in the default (light) forum theme. I am aware of several things that might be harder (or maybe even impossible) to read/see when using the dark theme. I simply can't be bothered to keep the topic up to my admittedly high standards in both themes as it would require way to much menial work (As this is a "for fun" project, I thinks it's understandable why I don't want to do things I consider "unfun").

Sidenote: All the drawings and art is mine. Made the logo using some materials from the fansite kit available on the official Warframe site and the amazing TennoTyper (found here: https://clarvel.github.io/TennoTyper/) Official Warframe materials are used on certain occasions.

Since the thread has become pretty sizeable, I decided to make a working table of contents, full of links for reader convenience.

If you wish to follow the story as it was made, you are welcome to read from beginning to the end. Alternatively, use the Chronological List. (Decided it was taking too much space, I recommend using the Thematic Table of Contents for the best "experience").

If you are interested in a specific topic, or wish to read everything in a more cohesive, logical way, use the Thematic List.

Additionally, I have a small, "miscellaneous" thread with bonus ideas. While those are generally way less "grandiose" than what you'll find here, I do consider them as "in-game" for the purposes of this thread, so if something doesn't make sense, it might have been mentioned there.

PART 1:

Fall of Vay Hek and Operation Shadow Marines

 

Background info:

After the fiasko of the Balor Fomorians, Vay Hek lost much of his foothold in the Grineer Military Council, even the Queens have shown their displeasure with his failure. In official materials, it's Tyl Regor who has been given the authority over the future offensives. However, this is where my concept will diverge from canon. Enter Nazol Fokk, one of the oldest Grineer generals and, conveniently, Hek's biggest rival in the Council. There is a saying that "opposites attract each other", then I guess it is normal that Nazol and Hek are sworn enemies. They are very similar, both in their background and in their heavy use of augments. One thing divides them, however. Fokk is a traditionalist, where most Grineer officers would like to use the Tenno, he would like to destroy them all. He's deathly afraid of them. When Hek started losing power, Nazol was the one who took over. His great intelligence and independent thought, results of a mistake during the cloning process, let him quickly subjugate the Council. 

Nazol Fokk:

nazol_fokk_by_huginthecrowda_dcsnee4-ful

 

 

This old, veteran Grineer is only alive due to double-redundant life support systems, specifically crafted for him by Tyl Regor. But while his body might not be in combat-ready state, his mind is more than enough to completely outpace most of the Grineer. He's a mastermind-in-hiding even moreso than Hek.

First thing Nazol did with his power, was promoting a young, aspiring Grineer, named Vuuk Nob, as his right hand assistant. Vuuk is a similar freak accident, capable of critical thought and, more importantly, innovation. Thus, after the failure of the Fomorians, a new operation was planned. "Grineer technology is not enough" Nob decided "We need to gain understanding of corpus tech to advance ourselves". This was approved, as a lot of generals considered a more open conflict, or even a flat-out war with Corpus a possibility, after Hek decided to assault them with his Balors. This was the beginning of the Shadow Marines.

An elite dispatchment of Grineer soldiers, specifically cloned, trained and equipped to deal with Corpus. Their mission: to stealthily board lone Corpus vessels, then comandeer them and take them to Ceres for "deconstruction". Their existence shall be always denied and Corpus ship losses explained as "Tenno attacks" or "increased pirate activity".

The Worm Queen was promised a "completely new type of protein slurry, with a unique, Crewman taste" and so she happily agreed to the plan. Vuuk had an additional, hidden agenda, however. He wanted to find a way to contact the Tenno. From the moment he barely survived a Tenno attack, he became obsessed with them. He thought: "Tenno are the perfection of war, Grineer must become that same perfection".

Vu'uk Nob:

And so begun operation Shadow Marines...

General mechanics:

Shadow Marines (or as they are often called, "Korsar" Grineer, e.g. Korsar Lancer) are not featured in a one-time event. Instead, they can be encountered when the following requirement are met:

1. The planet (not the mission) needs to be under a Grineer offensive (invasion). They will not appear if it's the Grineer who are defending.

2. The player needs to have completed the War Within cinematic quest.

3. The player needs to start a mission on a node featuring Corpus Ship tileset or Corpus Archwing tileset, that does not have any Grineer presence (meaning: not an invasion node, not a kuva siphon/flood node). These guys work as a stealth team, other Grineer would blow their cover.

If these conditions are met, the Korsar units have a high chance of spawning during the mission. They can and will appear in Corpus sorties (that fit other requirements). Once they are there a few short transmissions will confirm their arrival.

Spoiler

Lotus:"Strange... What is that signal? Someone is trying to contact you..."

???: Oh, the Tenno are also here! Great, this is our chance!

???: So, you came to fight the Corpus? Want to team up? We'll split halfsies on the loot.

The player will then have a choice, if they attack the Korsars, they will obviously retaliate, but if no offensive action is taken for a short time, they will become allied for the mission.

The Shadow Marines  always spawn several levels over the average mission level. Due to this, they can be a dangerous foe in higher level planets. The player will get different rewards for fighting them or fighting with them.

Fight the Korsar and you can acquire blueprints of their advanced weaponry. Help them out enough times and you will gain a blueprint Hrokgar Grineer-made Archwing as well as a Korsar Teleport Beacon gear item blueprint (which allows you to summon the Korsars in any mission, which meets the normal conditions).

Korsar Forces:

Some common things:

1. All Korsar units wield a full loadout of weapons (primary, secondary and melee), when disarmed, they will first switch to the secondary weapons (they need to be disarmed twice to switch to melee).

2. All Korsar units are equipped with Hrokgar Jetpack/Archwing. They can use them even in non-Archwing missions to dash around very quickly.

3. All Korsar units use a new armor class, the Composite Armor. Their health is still the good, old Cloned Flesh.

Korsar Lancer:

Spoiler

korsar_lancer_2_0_by_huginthecrowda_dcxh

Description:

The most common unit in the force, Korsar Lancers are nevertheless not to be underestimated. As a result of different cloning practices, they are able to act more independently and use more advanced tactics. As with all Korsar units, they are equipped with a Hrokgar Archwing/Jetpack, granting them mobility nearly on par with the Tenno as well as granting them the ability to dash around in non-Archwing missions. They will frequently do so to gain a better position over their enemies. For their weapons, they use the fearsome Voltakk Submachine Gun as a primary and Dwerg Burst Pistol as a secondary, their melee weapon is Skulbak Combat Mace.

Mechanics and Abilities:

Movement: Jetpack Dash: Using their Hrokgar Gear, this unit can quickly reposition themselves, gaining damage reduction on certain frames of the animation.

Grenade: EMP Grenade: This unit can throw EMP grenades, which detonate after short delay, disabling electronical units and proccing 18?cb=20140124221429 Magnetic status effect on all units in the radius.

Heavy Lancers are the tanks of this detachment. These troops feature not only increased armor but are also equipped with a personal shield (physical object, not energy shielding) they use to obscure their head when firing at their enemy (the shield is immune to damage and punch-through). As always, they also possess the Hrokgar Jetpack. Their primary weapon of choice is the Batlok, a heavy Battle Rifle with selective fire capabilities. Other than that, they also use the Dwerg Burst Pistol and Skulbak Combat Mace.

Description:

Korsar Shield Lancers have a similar duty to the generic ones found within the Space Marine corps. However their shields are bigger, immune to punch-through and are augmented with powerful strobe lights, capable of blinding nearby foes. These units opt out of using a primary weapon and instead rely on their comrades to deal the damage. They are still equipped with a Jetpack and use Dwerg Burst Pistol and Skulbak Combat Mace.

Description:

Korsar Troopers are heavily armored CQC specialists. Armed with powerful Nob Pump-action Shotgun, they can deal a lot of punishment very quickly. Their other weapons are the Dwerg Burst Pistol and Skulbak Combat Mace. Their favourite tactic is to dash towards a chosen target with their Jetpack, then blast them right in the face with full 2-barreled fury of the Nob. They are also way more likely to throw grenades and will often use two at the same time.

Mechanics and Abilities:

Movement: Jetpack Dash: Using their Hrokgar Gear, this unit can quickly reposition themselves, gaining damage reduction on certain frames of the animation.

With their primary they will often spin-up before engaging the opposition, then charge in with their Jetpacks. The Missile Pods can fire traditional 18?cb=20140124221425 Blast damage explosives or 2-stage Magnetic b-18?cb=20140124221426 Magnetic-Electric warheads designed to counter Corpus units.

Heavy Support Gunners are dedicated anti-armour units. They are often capable of killing enemies like Bursas in one shot with their incredibly powerful Demolok Anti-Materiel Rifle. As opposed to most heavy units, they prefer to stay behind and lock down the enemy from range. You could say they are a heavily beefed-up Balista equivalent.

korsar_tech_2_0_by_huginthecrowda_dcxhjz

Description:

These specialised elites are most often the leaders of Korsar raiding squads. They are equipped with state-of-the-art hacking equipment, allowing them to hack the Corpus consoles just like Tenno do. They will often times turn off the alarm or release lockdowns on Corpus Ships. They can also sometimes attempt to steal data in Spy missions, be careful, however. If you haven't allied with them, they can cause you to lose the mission, as any vault hacked by an enemy Tech is considered purged. They use the Dwerg Burst Pistol and the Skulbak Combat Mace as their weaponry, and will attempt no direct combat, trying to hack as many things as they can.

Mechanics and Abilities:

Movement: Jetpack Dash: Using their Hrokgar Gear, this unit can quickly reposition themselves, gaining damage reduction on certain frames of the animation.

Grenade: EMP Grenade: This unit can throw EMP grenades, which detonate after short delay, disabling electronical units and proccing 18?cb=20140124221429 Magnetic status effect on all units in the radius.

Spoiler

Old art:

Spoiler

16___yl5fcyv_by_huginthecrowda_dcsnfff-f

Description:

The Batlok rifle is a heavy-duty tool of destruction. Initially designed solely to punch holes in enemy ship hulls, the weapon found another use as a counter to newer heavy Proxy designs. Developed in secret by the Hrokgar Masterworks, like most Korsar weapons.

Nob Pump-action Shotgun:

Spoiler

Old art:

Spoiler

18___x9rnadc_by_huginthecrowda_dcsnfh6-f

Description:

This weapon is a conversion of the classic Hek design. Decreased amount of barrels tightens the spread, and added Pump-action increases stopping power. Each barrel has an independent magazine, which allows the weapon to fire in duplex mode. Developed in secret by the Hrokgar Masterworks, like most Korsar weapons.

Mechanics:

Innate: Double Mag: Reload can be interrupted in half to reload only one barrel. This disables the Duplex firing function.

Design notes:

Looks inspired by SPAS-12, just way more bulky (like the Grineer). Duplex shotgun that doesn't have to reload every time is my dream weapon.

19___k4azf7o_by_huginthecrowda_dcsnfi3-f

Description:

If you ever found yourself needing more firepower, look no further. This is THE GUN. This quad-barreled rotary autocannon deals the damage. Just needs to be spun-up first.

Mechanics:

Innate: Rotary Engine: The weapon cannot be fired before achieving maximum spin. This weapon fires straight from reserves.

Description:

This precision semi-auto rifle was created to destroy enemy armour. It's stopping power is so high, that instead of having normal recoil it pushes the shooter back.

Innate: Dual Stage Warhead Munitions: Fires powerful 2-stage warheads, which first deal 18?cb=20140124221429 Magnetic damage (with a guaranteed proc) in a small aoe, then deals the rest of the damage

Alt-fire: Modular Scope: Press while Scoped in to switch between a 2.5x/4x magnification.

Design notes:

Skulbak Combat Mace:

Spoiler

21___7zarw0e_by_huginthecrowda_dcsnfk8-f

Description:

A replacement for the standard Sheev Palpatine, this mace is better designed to deal with shielded opponents.

Mechanics:

Innate: Energy Coils: This weapon has innate 18?cb=20140124221426 Electricity damage.

Charge attack/Finisher: Magnetic Force: Guaranteed 18?cb=20140124221429 Magnetic proc on charge/heavy attacks and finishers.

Design notes:

There is no small maces in this game (Silva Prime doesn't count). Also makes more sense to use an impact based weapon against a faction weak to impact (considering that most Grineer weapon follow this, it makes sense their melee would be the same). It's a machete, because a Kronsh Zaw with a short handle makes a machete-stanced mace.

Blueprint obtainable from helping the Korsars out. Given in mail by Korsar Leader.

 

Bonus informations:

Just to clarify some other things I didn't touch up on.

1. Korsars spawn in a single "wave" if they are eliminated, they won't reappear in the mission.

2. Regarding their spawn location, they will generally attempt to either spawn in next room closer to the objective than the players, or just teleport on top of the Tenno.

3. They will never be the first to attack the Tenno. However, they will instantly assault the player if they are attacked.

4. While their base level is 15, they will always have higher level than the mission they spawn in (generally 10-15 levels higher) So they can't actually spawn in early missions (e.g. Venus)

5. I'd imagine (based on details we don't know yet) that they could possibly spawn in Railjack, but that would be based on what level that mode will be.

6. The Korsar Teleport Beacon (image below) is a one-use gear item (blueprint acquired by helping out the Korsars a few times, just like the Archwing bp), which forces Korsar spawn in a mission that otherwise has met a the base requirements.

22___x4a1zml_by_huginthecrowda_dcsnfkx-f

7. The Korsar use a new special Stealth Ship, the Manannan (image above)(named after Irish mythology guy with a Cloak of Invisibility, keeping with the theme of Grineer ships). This is mostly only lore-relevant though. It is around the size of a Firbolg and manned by a skeleton crew. It's role is to fire Teleport beacons at Corpus ships, which are then used to triangulate the position of them, when the Korsars decide to go say hello (violently).

Grineer Reinforcements:

27___8zkovsv_by_huginthecrowda_dcsngh2-f

Introducing: Grinbau Explosive Bow, Nidlok Bolt Pistol, Misilok Portable Launcher, Kombinak... I'm not sure what it is to be honest... and the Brunink Heavy Machinegun!

Grinbau:

Spoiler

Description: 

Grinbau is an exclusive weapon wielded by bored Nobles during occassional hunts. Sometimes the game is a wild, mutated animal, sometimes it's a squad of very unlucky marines. It's special functionality ensures the target dies, no matter what it is.

How it works:

1. User puts the arrow against the center opening.

2.User pushes the arrow in, which locks it inside and activates a pump mechanism, filling the arrrow with detonite.

3.User pulls the arrow back, which in turn, extends the injector needle and locks the pump system

4. When fully extended, the locking mechanism opens (those thin antenna bits in front), and the arrow can be fired.

Mechanics:

Innate: Heavy Detonite Casing Arrows: Arrows need to be fully charged before shooting. Arrows do not explode on impact. Instead, they inject their contents into the enemy hit. Each "Detonite injection" grants the explosion bonus damage, flat bonus to crit chance equal to this weapon's base crit chance as well as increased aoe.

Alt-fire: Trigger: Detonates all enemies tagged by the arrows.

Design notes:

This is the Grineer bow. Because they need one. The idea is that you can fire the arrows really quickly and decide when to blow everyone up. Be careful about self-damage though :tongue:

Nidlok:

Spoiler

Description:

Once in a rare while a Tenno drops their weapon in the heat of battle. Be it due to actually being overwhelmed and having to retreat or just because of neglect, it doesn't really matter. What does matter is that those guns often times end up in the hands of the enemy, just like this Bolto conversion. The Nidlok is an example of the inexplicable ability of the Grineer to reverse engineer pretty much anything given enough time and samples.

Mechanics:

Innate: Grineer Tampering: This weapon fires at full auto.

Design notes:

This gun is a "what if" about a Grineer gunsmith who found a Bolto. And then tampered with it to the near-breaking point.

Misilok:

Spoiler

Description: Small and portable, the Misilok has gained popularity with the Urban-Warfare Troops, like the Drok Division, as it is much easier to use in tight quarters than the bulky Ogris, all the while still delivering a similar result. Likewise, it has gained notoriety amongst many rebels of the System as the "Nightmare Gun".

Mechanics:

Innate: Full Burst: This weapon fires all of it's payload simultaneously.

Alt-fire: Lock-On Module: While Scoped, hold to lock on to targets, causing fired missiles to gain homing capabilities. The missiles will be equally split amongst all Locked-On units. Lock-On delay is affected by Fire Rate.

Design notes:

A portable version of AT Ogris, which lets you decide who to chase around the map. Potentially dangerous to the user when engaging melee enemies. Be careful about the self-damage.

Kombinak:

Spoiler

Description:

This weapon is a pet project of Horma Vamrak, an eccentric Noble and the head of the Vamrak Industries, which is infamous for creating many a weird gun. The Kombinak rifle uses a unique mechanical system to simultaneously feed rounds into 3 barrels. Hitting an enemy with all of them might prove to be quite a challenge however, as they rotate and move in random directions with each shot.

Mechanics:

Innate: Instant Burst: All shots in the burst are fired instantaneously.

Innate: Spread Damage: Each shot in the burst carries a part of the damage, instead of each shot dealing the full amount. Each barrel fires a different type of projectile, one 18?cb=20150811174304 Impact, one 18?cb=20150810075255 Puncture and one 18?cb=20150811174234 Slash.

Innate: Full Force: Hitting an enemy with all 3 bullets in one burst causes an explosion, dealing 300% of the weapon's damage.

Design notes:

Can't find right now, but when I was looking through DE artists' Grineer weapon concepts on Artstation, I saw this three-barrel monstrosity, and decided I'd make it a thing. Changed the looks quite a bit though.

Brunink:

Spoiler

Description:

This powerful Machinegun is extremely heavy and hard to control. Originally designed as a mounted, immobile emplacement, it was re-built after soldiers begun to rip them out of the mount to charge the enemy, when they could no longer fire at them from their previous fortified postions. Surprisingly, that worked pretty well.

Mechanics:

Alt-fire: Deploy Mount-Pod: Press to enter immobile stance, greatly increasing stability and handling of this weapon.

Brunink = Browning machine gun. Doesn't really look the part, but the mechanics are there.

An immense, dark fortress looms in the distance. It is too massive to be completely visible from this location. Countless Grineer galleons and corvettes are ceaselessly flying in and out of this behemoth of steel and rock. It's blood-shot, ever-searching eye suddenly turns, as if could look directly at a small vessel hidden between the asteroids.

36___mvfpuek_by_huginthecrowda_dcsngro-f

"On that day, the tenno have rebelled against their masters and ended the Orokin Empire. Even now they struggle against us. But did you really think you could kill me so easily, Teshin Dax?"

Part 2:

Kuva Fortress, the Inner Sanctum:

Kuva Fortress has many secrets. The Tenno thought they had it penetrated and searched through after their daring escape from the Twin Queens.

They were wrong.

What they saw, what they fought through was just the outer layer. A glimpse of the true Fortress was revealed when they found the Kuva Harvester units and, blasphemously, took them for themselves.

But the Inner Sanctum awaits.

"Tenno, you are still just a child, prepare to be taught a lesson about good manners."

Grineer Reinforcements:

8ZKovsV.jpg

Introducing: Grinbau Explosive Bow, Nidlok Bolt Pistol, Misilok Portable Launcher, Kombinak... I'm not sure what it is to be honest... and the Brunink Heavy Machinegun!

Grinbau:

  Hide contents

Description: While at first glance, the Grinbau might seem as an inferior Lenz, it's unique stacking mechanic more than compensates for lower stats. The Detonite-infused arrows do not explode on impact. Instead, they inject their contents into the enemy hit. Each "Detonite injection" grants the explosion bonus damage, flat bonus to crit chance equal to this weapon's base crit chance as well as increased aoe. Use the secondary fire to trigger the explosion.

Design notes: This is the Grineer bow. Because they need one. I suppose they would use this weapon when killing some really big animals on planets they control. The idea is that you can fire the arrows really quickly and decide when to blow everyone up. Be careful about self-damage though :tongue:

Misilok:

Description: Small and portable, the Misilok fires all of it's payload simultaneously. Using the scope (zoom) allows to Lock-On to chosen targets, which causes the missiles to home onto them.

Ah, the bow seems to be a reasonable piece of kit as far as I can tell. Tempted to suggest an increased fire-rate and a decreased damage output to "let the pay-off actually happen", but, you seem to have things set up and layered with establishing concrete.

Well, seeing as it is a bow, all fire rate mods affect it with double power. Didn't want to overdo the speed, as it could make it kind of ridiculous. One thing I suppose I should add, is that the bow needs to be charged fully to fire. No half-charged shots.

Ah, a need to prime the injection pump by giveing it a full draw, I can see that. Otherwise, it's like throwing a heavy glass container filled with liquid at someone with a hypodermic stuck on the end.

I can get behind that aspect.

But the Inner Sanctum awaits.

Let us begin then.

The Inner Sanctum is meant to be endgame. Prepare for 3rd Sortie-tier levels, difficult minibosses at every turn and heavy usage of the Transference. The requirements for unlocking this new area of the Kuva Fortress are also somewhat intricate. So here we go.

Prerequisites:

1. Reach Mastery Rank 10. This one is simple enough. Ensures you have adequate equipment and understanding of the game.

2. Clear all currently (as of the time of writing this post) available quests. If somehow you didn't do that yet. Ensures plot continuity.

3. Acquire 10000 Kuva (not a career total, must have it all in the inventory) as well as have cycled a Riven mod at least once (that part should be easy though). Ensures you have the resources you will need.

4. Acquire the Korsar Teleport Beacon by helping out the Shadow Marines (see Part 1 of this thread) and use it at least once. Ensures plot continuity.

5. When all of the above is done, the player will be contacted by Krina Hrokgar (Korsar Leader). The message will unlock a new quest, "Corpus Omega-Proxy".

Spoiler

"Hey Tenno, I know it might seem weird to ask you for help, but we fought together before.

Here it goes: We got some intel on a brand new Corpus proxy being built. It's big, really big.

This message got the coords, if you think you could come and hang out."

6. After the quest completion (more on that below), the player will be messaged by Teshin. This transmission will also unlock the Inner Sanctum's first mission node (connected to Taveuni, Kuva Fortress). It will also PERMAMENTLY increase base level of all Kuva Fortress missions to 50-60 as well as introduce permament alert level system to them (again, more on that below).

Corpus-Omega Proxy Quest:

After the message from Krina, a quest node on Pluto will become available. The mission is a Corpus Ship Assassination, with it's target being the mysterious Omega-Proxy. When the mission starts, the player will be contacted by Krina, who will lead them towards the target. No enemies will be present at that point. After reaching the boss arena, the player will be ambushed by a great number of Kuva soldiers, including multiple Guardians and Jesters.

Spoiler

Krina: "Sorry, Tenno. But you got something we need and asking politely just wasn't an option."

Ordis: "Operator?! The Grineer! They are on the Orbiter! THESE BLOODY-*static*"

After fighting off the Kuva forces, the player will return to the Orbiter, only to find that nothing really changed. Except, the Vitruvian device (acquired during the Sacrifice quest) is gone.

This discovery prompts the aforementioned message from Teshin.

Spoiler

Teshin: "Tenno, you were made a fool. There is no saying what the Grineer could do with Ballas's knowledge.

Thankfully, I know where they took the Vitruvian. It's the Kuva Fortress."

Operator: "Well, it shouldn't be too bad then. I've already raided that place multiple times."

Teshin: "There are things you still don't know about that place... I... You need to be careful Tenno. The enemy has only grown in power since we last fought them."

This completes the quest, unlocking the Inner Sanctum's first node, the Hall of Greetings. Entering this mission requires 500 Kuva every time (although Kuva can sometimes be acquired inside). Next nodes will be unlocked later, each with their own requirements.

Permament Alarm System:

As mentioned before, a special system becomes active in all Kuva Fortress missions, obviously including the Inner Sanctum.

Inspired by the Alarm Level mechanic showcased during the Fortuna sneak peek, Kuva Fortress has multiple stages of Alarm. Once a stage has been reached, however, it can only be reverted once. After the same Alarm level has been raised again, it cannot be hacked away. The Fortress hates uninvited guests. Door lockdown happens every 2 Alarm stages and can always be disabled via hacking.

In addition to increased enemy spawns and levels, the Alarm levels can attract different, powerful enemies.

Kuva Fortress Alarm levels:

(Each Alarm level increases enemy unit levels, up to level 100)

1. Normal effects of a raised alarm.

2. Door lockdown, spawns large force of enemies in a room close by.

3. Guaranteed Heavy Unit Eximus dispatchment spawn (teleports to next room, or even on top of the player).

4. Door lockdown, spawns large force of enemies in a room close by.

5. Guaranteed Kuva Guardian and Jester spawns, from now on these units can spawn normally in the level.

6. Door lockdown, Heavy Unit Eximus dispatchment spawns on top of the player, led by a Kuva Guardian and Jester.

7 (and every odd level from now on). Kuva Bombard Eximi now spawn periodically on top of the player's location (each Alarm level adds another Bombard).

8 (and every even level from now on). Door lockdown, Kuva Guardian Eximi (Yes.) now spawn periodically on top of the player's location (each Alarm level adds another Guardian).

Reasoning for the changes: This makes the Fortress truly feel like the heart of the Grineer empire. You don't go in and do whatever you want for as long as you want. You go in, and attempt to get out as fast as possible.

Inner Sanctum Alarm levels:

(Each Alarm level increases enemy unit levels, up to level 150)

1. Kuva Executioner and Kuva Assassin duo deployed against the player.

2. Door lockdown, Kuva Executioner and Kuva Assassin duo deployed against the player.

3. Kuva Executioner Eximus and Kuva Assassin Eximus duo deployed against the player.

4. Door lockdown, Kuva Executioner Eximus and Kuva Assassin Eximus duo deployed against the player, the Void Phantom starts spawning rarely.

5. Kuva Vor spawns.

6. Door lockdown, the Void Phantom appears more often.

7 (and every odd level from now on). Kuva Carriers appear more rarely in the mission, the Void Phantom appears more often.

8 (and every even level from now on). Door lockdown, Kuva Carriers appear more rarely in the mission, the Void Phantom appears more often.

It's time. This is just the beginning, Tenno.

Inner Sanctum: Basic mechanics:

1. As said above, entering any Inner Sanctum mission costs [500*Mission tier] Kuva. This has to be paid by every player in the party.

2. In the Sanctum, no male Grineer, apart from the Kuva Daks and Kuva Vor, can be found. Yes, this means yet more units are coming.

3. Inner Sanctum uses a variation on the Grineer Asteroid Fortress tileset (called Asteroid Fortress Hidden), with new rooms and traps. No archwing tiles exist within this tileset.

4. Teshin replaces Lotus-Ordis for these missions.

Void Phantom:

Spoiler

41___rj576bu_by_huginthecrowda_dcsnh00-f

A unique mechanic tied to the Permament Alarm System (read in posts above) is the Void Phantom.

When reaching a certain Alarm level inside the Sanctum, the Phantom gains increasingly high chance to spawn ever so often.

When appearing, it will taunt the players directly.

The Phantom is completely INVULNERABLE AND IMMUNE TO ALL CROWD CONTROL. It will despawn after some time has passed.

While unkillable, it cannot directly damage the players, it's attacks can only cause stagger. However, when in Operator mode, the Phantom may attempt to possess the player's Warframe.

When that happens, the Operator is instantly recalled and multiple Transference Static procs is applied, these have no cap. Umbra Warframes can only be possessed when their hp has been depleted.

Kuva Immortals:

Spoiler

39___i1i1dyb_by_huginthecrowda_dcsngw1-f

Kuva Immortals are Inner Sanctum specific traps that fill many rooms in the tileset.

These warriors of old are strapped into the walls of the Sanctum, forced to defend it for eternity.

When alerted, they will instantly raise Alarm level and engage the player. When killed, they will be revived by an automatic electro-revive system after a delay. This cannot be stopped.

Their life support system cannot be destroyed.

Just as a heads up: I'm planning on having 4 Inner Sanctum missions, each unlocked by completing the previous. Those would be, in unlock order:

1. Hall of Greetings (Exterminate);

2. Lidless Eye (Sabotage);

3. Kuva Refinery (Defense);

4. Yuvan Theatre (Assassination).

As mentioned before, entering costs Kuva (500 x Mission Tier, where Mission Tier is equal to the unlock order).

An additional Quest mission will be unlocked after defeating the Yuvan Theatre's boss a few times. Stay tuned I guess.

Spoiler

It may or may not involve truly killing an Orokin.

Fast post to clarify the Kuva Flask mechanic possessed by multiple units I've previously shown here (e.g. Kuva Executioner).

Reminder: As long as a unit possesses a Kuva Flask, they are invulnerable to damage and resist all crowd control applied to them.

dcsnh9z-65de86fe-56e7-4266-83e9-b936a26e

As seen on the picture, the Flasks can only be destroyed when they are extended (this happens periodically based on certain attacks and abilities used by the enemy in question).

The Flasks can only be damaged with Void damage.

Enemies generally have multiple Flasks on their armor, however they do not regenerate, so after destroying all of them, the unit will not regain their invincibility.

 

Coming soon: new Grineer Reinforcements!

Grikrat:

Spoiler

Description:

This streamlined Grakata variant possesses variable firing modes, allowing for greater accuracy and power over longer range. Default full-auto retains the familiar feel, while added 3-round burst mode deals more focused damage to priority targets. Designed by the Arno Harkonar as his first display of genius.

Mechanics:

Primary Fire Mode: Full Auto Trigger

Secondary Fire Mode: Tri-Burst Trigger

Design notes:

Meant to be Prisma Grakata's sidegrade, this gun is probably what you would want to get if you enjoyed base Grakata in the early game. Alt-fire to switch fire modes.

Leviathan:

Spoiler

Description: 

This heavy battle rifle is an evolution of multiple Grineer weapon technologies. State of the Art trigger mechanism design combined with unique scope system make this rifle stand above. Equipped with the same Target-Finder technology as the Batlok as well as an under-slung Incendiary Shell Launcher, this is not a gun for basic grunts.

Mechanics:

Innate: Advanced Target Finder: while scoped in, enemies glow in the weapon's energy color (not just an outline, their whole sihouette would be marked), Punch-Through allows to see enemies through walls (up to the Punch-through value).

Alt-fire: Underbarrel Incendiary Shell Launcher: Fires a fiery HEAT projectile. Get it?

Design notes:

I like burst weapons, I like duplex weapons, so this is a duplex-burst gun. With added grenade launcher (uses 16 ammo per nade). Alt-fire shoots the nade instantly instead of switching fire modes.

Toksilok:

Spoiler

Description:

Using unique "wet can"-type silencer, the Toksilok is completely supressed. Toxic ammunition it fires behaves like it's smaller brother's, Acrid's. As a bonus, enemies killed by this weapon cannot scream, due to their vocal cords/systems being melted. This is a lethal, inhumane assassination tool.

Mechanics:

Innate: No Escape: This weapon is completely silent, procs Toxin on every hit and disintegrates killed enemies instantly.

Acrid as a sniper rifle, kinda.

Shrap:

Spoiler

Description: 

These shrapnel grenades are perfect for clearing out closed spaces and dealing with Infestation. When they explode, a large amount of small metal blades damages everything around.

Mechanics:

Innate: Shrapnel: This weapon releases deadly projectiles on detonation.

Charge: Hot Potato: Hold to "cook" the grenade.

Design notes:

I feel like thrown weapons are too stale with "different type of throwing knife". We have electric castanas. So, let's have actual frag grenades. Beware of self-damage.

Koilok:

Spoiler

Description: Powered by a strong electro-magnet, the Koilok can fry enemies with pure energy. Due to the need for a closed circuit, this weapon only fires when the aiming reticule is on an enemy.

Mechanics:

Innate: Short Circuit: This weapon can only fire if there is an enemy in it's range.

Design notes:

An "auto-trigger" gun. It's inherent "cheatiness" is offset by the fact it's not actually that super powerful and has a pitiful range.

Gustof:

Spoiler

Description: Gustof is a powerful hand cannon capable of breaking through heavy armor. Originally made as a gift by Gaud Krupp for Ela Drakkar, one of the Grineer High Councillors, it's design has proven exceptional during her hunting sessions. She enjoyed the weapon so much that she ordered weaker copies to be given to her loyal Widowmakers. 

Mechanics:

Innate: Heat Dissipation Shroud: This weapon briefly decreases 18?cb=20140124221428 Heat resistance of all nearby units (including the user) by 16.66% per bullet loaded (additive, or rather subtractive*).

Alt-fire: Super-Combination Chamber: This weapon can fire it's shots individually, or, by using a unique lever action, load up to 6 rounds to fire them as one (combining their base stats** into a single, powerful bullet).

Design notes:

"Choose your firepower" the gun. Either really strong, or absolutely overkilling everything.

*Say a dude has 50% resistance to Heat, with all 6 bullets shot he has -50% now, etc.

**Yes, this means 4 shots combined have base 100% status, as well as 6-combined shot having 300% base crit chance and 15x multiplier. It takes 6.6 seconds (6 times the reload, obviously) to load all the bullets.

Stats:

Mastery: 13

Slot: Primary

Type: Rifle

Trigger: Semi-Auto

Inner Sanctum - Hall of Greetings, the Grineer High Noble Quarters:

Each time the Inner Sanctum is entered, a single Noble House will be chosen from the available pool (starting at 4, but I might add to it later).

Houses possess unique units, abilities and tiles (I will elaborate on those in further posts, for now I'll namedrop a lot 😉 ), which only appear when fighting the specific House.

For easier recognition in battle, each House has a main color, which replaces the normal Kuva coloring of all units in the mission (including generic Grineer units not exclusive to any House).

As said before, there are currently four Houses:

The High Noble Houses:

1. House Drakkar:

2. House Spruk:

Spoiler

2. Spruk Panzor

3. Spruk Martyr

Unique Tactics:

1. "Unending Service"

2. "Our Bodies as a Shield"

4. House Krall:

House Motto: "The Stars, they are the Grineer Empire."

House Color: Morning Blue (RGB 141, 163, 153)

Unique Units:

1. Krall Alfa-Lancer

2. Krall Stapled

3. Krall Invigorator

Unique Tactics:

1. "Revive Protocol"

2. "Thirst for Knowledge"

Each House will have it's own post, for easy access, when I make an actual table of contents.
