How to Get Frost in Warframe

Last Updated on April 21, 2022

Frost might not be among the best Warframes in the game. However, he’s worth bringing along due to his superior defensive and offensive abilities. Those attributes have often placed him ahead of most same-category Warframes. 

Besides, the Warframe features excellent health, although it depletes with every damage taken. Overall, Frost will be a reliable source of solace for his team. Thanks to his Abilities.

Frost’s Abilities

Frost is a nice-to-have Warframe owing to what he can help you achieve in the game. Here’s what he’ll bring along.

Snowball

If there’s a reason for getting Frost in Warframe, it must be his Snowball ability. Casting a Snowball scatters nearby enemies and helps slow down incoming enemies to help you slay with minimum hustle. The Snowball also creates a sphere to shield the team from attack. Meanwhile, you can still inflict injury while behind the protective sphere. Interestingly, you can refresh or strengthen an old Snowball by casting another Snowball on it several times.

 Freeze

The effect of Frost’s freezing abilities depends on usage. The Warframe can inflict cold damage on enemies. Frost fires his freeze projectile at an enemy, which freezes them instantly for that to happen. The projectile can also be fired on a surface to create a frozen area. That helps to slow down any approaching enemy. Lastly, freeze can help detonate Snowball to kill enemies that enter his range.

Avalanche

Inflict cold damage, freeze nearby enemies, or temporarily reduce their armor by leveraging this ability. Lastly, enjoy massive destruction with this ability and watch enemies explode and destroy other enemies. However, the enemies have to die within the avalanche to explode.

Ice wave

Like the Snowball ability, the Ice wave ability will significantly slow down your enemies’ attack speed and movement. Alternatively, you can use it to inflict damage. This ability helps you handle weaker enemies as well as a group of enemies.

How to Get Frost in Warframe 

Frost goes for 175 platinum from the Ingame market. Farming will require you to complete the Extra assassination mission. The bosses you’ll be tackling are Captain Vor and Lieutenant Lech Kril. This assassination mission is different since you’ll be tackling the two bosses simultaneously.

The bosses are located on Ceres. In order to get both of them, first, locate the pointer that indicates the boss fight area. Then, proceed until the cut scene plays and start fighting them.

Although you can attack them together, it’s best to start with Vor since other enemies abound in the Grineer area. Also, Vor is pretty easy to defeat. You’ll realize that his Alloy armor can hardly withstand Radiation damage. 

Also, Captain Vors shields will melt under Magnetic damage. Lastly, trick Vor into repositioning himself by moving out of the area and then attacking. Put simply, it makes sense to attack one at a time.

Remember, the Captain keeps appearing and disappearing. Therefore, make sure to hammer him continually until he dies, then shift your focus to Lieutenant Lech Kril. Since the Lieutenant rarely moves, it is easy to spot and shoot the coolant tank on his back.

That will help disconnect the tubes, and he’ll freeze when he attempts to perform a slam attack. You can now grab the opportunity and damage the tank as much as possible. Once that’s accomplished, remove the tubes and kill him. 

After defeating the two bosses, go ahead and extract. Following are the components you’ll obtain:

  • Frost Neuroptics
  • Frost Systems
  • Frost Chassis

Building Your Frost

You’ll be building your Frost in the Foundry. Aside from the components, you’ll need an extra Orokin Cell plus his Blueprint. You can buy the Blueprint from the Orbiter for 25,000 credits.

The breakdown of the building requirements are as follows:

Frost Blueprint

  • Frost Neuroptics x 1
  • Orokin Cell x 1
  • Frost Chassis x 1
  • Frost Systems x 1
  • Credits x 25,000

Frost Neuroptics

  • Alloy Plate x 150
  • Neural Sensors x 1
  • Rubedo x 500
  • Polymer Bundle x 150
  • Credits x 15,000

Frost Systems

  • Control Module x 1
  • Salvage x 500
  • Plastids x 220
  • Morphics x 1
  • Credits x 15,000

Frost Chassis

  • Morphics x 1
  • Rubedo x 300
  • Ferrite x 1,000
  • Credits x 15,000

It’s advisable to reserve your platinum for future use. However, you use 25 platinum to avoid building the components. To skip building the Warframe, you’ll part with 50 platinum. In addition, you’ll spend about 12 hours building the component and 72 hours crafting Frost himself.

 Conclusion

I’d advise you to tag along with a squad if you’re new to the game. After all, Frost isn’t available in Warframe. Therefore, getting him can be a bit challenging. To fellow tennos, it’s essential to remind you that Frost is naturally slow and not as sturdy as other Frames. That said, here are weapons I’ve used to improve his effectiveness during missions:

  • Glaxion
  • Spira
  • Ninkondi
