The Grendel Warframe will be making its arrival into the game pretty soon, DE Rebecca has confirmed that the mainline update will be coming in the month of August. That means we have only a few days left for the update to arrive. Both Gauss and Grendel were revealed in Tennocon and all the tennos were pretty hyped-up about it.
WARFRAME Grendel RELEASE DATE?
The exact release date for the frame is unknown, but Rebecca from Digital Extremes has confirmed that the mainline update (both Gauss and Grendel) will be coming in August 2019. So we can expect a major update within a few days. Below is a tweet from her
If you caught Friday's Devstream, we mentioned we aim to ship Gauss and his Mainline update on PC by end of August. That means we are in 'only hotfix if emergency' mode: https://t.co/fP3GumjAND

Below are the abilities of Grendel, these are subject to change with the official release.
Passive: Devours enemies and digests unlimited numbers of enemies using his abilities. With each enemy consumed Grendel will grow in size and gain bonus armor, this will drain energy though. Any incoming damage to Grendel will also be dealt to the enemies inside his stomach. This does sound like a weird ability, I might be able to better explain it once I have him.
Feast: Grendel opens up his jaws for a duration that sucks enemies, all these enemies are stored in his stomach. Holding down the 1 key will vomit these enemies and create a Toxin AOE. Grendel can eat multiple enemies in a single cast, the number of enemies consumed will show up in the HUD. The number of enemies consumed will also affect the amount of energy drain.
Nourish: Grendel stomps the ground and consumes a selected enemy, consuming the enemy completely will grant him and his allies with a buff depending on the type of the enemy.
The buffs are
- Nourish – Grants increased armor
- Energy Boosting Buff – Increases energy gain from energy orbs
- Toxin – Creates a toxin explosion when the player takes damage.
Regurgitate: Grendel spits a consumed enemy from a long-range. This is the damage-dealing ability and does a huge impact on impact.
Meatball: Grendel turns into a meatball. In this meatball form, Grendel will emit an aura around him that will consume any enemy that he hits. The radius of the aura will increase with the number of enemies consumed while running the ability. The ability has to be deactivated before Grendel runs out of energy or he will be left stunned for a when the energy is fully drained.
How To Farm Grendel
Grendel is likely to be tied to a quest that will grant a blueprint of the frame. The other parts might be tied to a farming spot or any of the open areas. The confirmed information is not known as of now and will be updated here.
The description of his passive is actually a function of his ability. This frame does sound like a remake of Nyx. But DE can always amaze us, let’s wait for the mainline update to drop and get our hands on both of these new frames; Gauss and Grendel.
Do let us know if you are excited for this, comment below and share this with your fellow Tenno.
