New Warframe, New Quest, Infested Game Mode, New Weapons and more await!

The Glast Gambit is live on PC! Spread the Infestation with the Lotus' newest warrior, Nidus. Plague your enemies with new weapons, Secondary and Shotgun Riven Mods, a new Quest and more!

The Infestation is spreading. Begin your journey for the plagued powers of the New Warframe, Nidus by embarking on a quest to aid the Mycona Colony in the search of their lost children. Then discover more about the Infestation by recovering research data with the return of the Infest Salvage Game Mode and enhance your powers with new Infested Weapons and Riven mods.

Highlights from The Glast Gambit include:


Plague your enemies with the Infested powers of Lotus’ newest warrior, Nidus. Nidus adapts to his enemies weaknesses, evolving the infestation within him.

Nidus’ Abilities:

Rupture the ground with a damaging fungal growth that steals energy from each enemy it strikes. For every five enemies hit, the Infestation mutates, multiplying its destructive force.

Spawn an Infested pod that erupts with tendrils, latches onto nearby enemies and pulls them in.

Bind to a target with a parasitic link. For allies, both the host and Nidus deal increased damage. Linked enemies take the damage inflicted on Nidus.

Gluttonous maggots swarm nearby enemies, feasting until they burst with Infestation. The maggots benefit from Mutation and each enemy consumed adds to the Mutation stack.

If Nidus is killed with at least 10 stacks of Mutation, those 10 stacks are consumed; this grants 5 seconds of invulnerability and restores health to 50%.

Summoned by Ergo Glast of the Perrin Sequence to the outpost known as the Mycona, you have discovered that Nef Anyo has stolen the children of the Mycona Colony, and it is up to you to get them back. You must challenge Nef in The Index and beat him at his own game. But Tenno, beware, not all is as it seems.*

*The Glast Gambit is available to all Tenno who have completed The War Within.


Handle these new Weapons and Customizations with care as they have been corrupted by the Infestation. Then expand your strength by wielding new Riven Mods for Shotgun and Secondary Weapons -- but know that you must prove yourself before their powers are revealed.

HEMA – A bloodsucker. This symbiotic burst-rifle leeches health to forge its ammo and then restores health with each headshot.

HIRUDO – Rip into the enemy with fists of razor sharp cartilage. Steals health with each critical hit.

THORAC SYANDANA – A sinuous spine of Infested anatomy.

RIVEN MODS – Unlock Riven Mods for your Shotgun and Secondary Weapons.

NEW GAME MODE: Infested Salvage

A ship and its crew have fallen victim to the Infestation they were researching. Locate the ship’s manifest to recover their extensive research, but be fast as a corrosive gas fills the ship degrading your armor integrity.

I tend to favour the puzzle, RPG, action-adventure and strategy genres. My particular favourites over the years have been Final Fantasy IX, Metal Gear Solid, Civilisation V and The Last of Us. I'm also a sucker for a series: Darksiders, Assassin's Creed, Tomb Raider etc. I am a bit of a lone gamer as I tend to steer clear of PvP, and only play multiplayer with close friends.
