Warframe Veilbreaker

When the Veilbreaker update hits Warframe in September, the game will have reached an impressive milestone. With the update, Digital Extremes will be introducing Styanax, a Warframe inspired by the Greek warrior Astyanax, to the game. Styanax will be the game’s 50th playable Warframe and is described as “Herculean”. He’s also the first Warframe to get his own animated short intended to expand on the game’s universe.

Keeping with the Greek/Herculean theme, Styanax features abilities that emphasize the theme.

  • Axios Javelin - Call upon the Axios Javelin. Any enemy Styanax strikes with his javelin is pushed back. When the javelin propels an enemy into a wall, the area suffers a burst of damage.
  • Tharros Strike - Summon Tharros, the shield of Styanax. Swing Tharros to repel enemies and reduce their shields and armor. Styanax regenerates health for every enemy struck.
  • Rally Point - Draw enemy attention to Styanax. His resolve uplifts nearby allies, regenerating their energy and shields. Shield regeneration increases with the number of enemies near Styanax.
  • Final Stand - Exude might and valor. Rise into the air and throw a barrage of Axios Javelins. The javelins deal damage to nearby enemies wherever they land. Direct hits to enemies deal even greater damage.

The Veilbreaker update will also bring back Kahl-175 as a playable character with a single-player quest that follows the events of The New War update. There will also be new weekly missions to go along with that.
