Warframe Strain Mods (How to Get, Mod Set Bonus)

Warframe Strain Mods

A Helminth companion on its own can prove to be quite deadly to your enemies but when your Warframe and the Helminth can synergize, more destruction is guaranteed.

The Strain Set Mods are meant to increase the spawning of cysts that explode into maggots, dealing damage to enemies and providing certain bonuses before exploding.

This set of mods work best when completed and will provide healing, increased base and critical damage, and the explosion of the maggots upon death.

How To Get Strain Mods?

Currently, you can only obtain the Strain Mods by completing Profit-Taker Orb Heists which can be done on Venus accepted from Vox Solaris.

Heists can be accepted in the backroom located within Fortuna when you interact with the Briefing Table, near Little Duck (Fast Travel to Little Duck to get there faster).

Strain Set Mods

1) Strain Consume Mod

Strain Consume allows your Warframe to regenerate health by a certain percentage for every maggot that dies within 5 meters.

Health that is restored begins at 1% at rank 0 and will reach up to 4% at Rank 3 while still retaining the same range of 5 meters.

Your Warframe will benefit from this greatly since more of the maggots spawned by the set bonus means more health restoration opportunities.

2) Strain Eruption Mod

Strain Eruption is a mod that is equipped on your Helminth Charger, which causes the maggots that have been spawned by its set bonus to explode on death.

Each explosion will deal Corrosive Damage based on the health of an enemy’s current health, starting from 1% reaching up to 4% with a range starting from 2 meters up to 8 meters.

This can make it easy to clear out several enemies and since their damage is based on the enemy’s health, higher-level enemies will cause the maggots to deal more damage when they explode.

3) Strain Fever Mod

Strain Fever increases the damage your Helminth Charger does based on how many cysts are present, which benefits from having more mods from the Strain Mods Set.

The percent of damage per cyst starts from 7% and reaches up to 30% when the mod is at max rank, applying the percent for each cyst from the set bonus.

Your Helminth Charger will be able to do even more damage as new cysts form on it, making it even deadlier when more set mods are equipped.

4) Strain Infection Mod

Strain Infection increases the Critical Damage by a certain percent based on how many cysts are present that have been spawned by the set bonus of the Strain Mods.

The more cysts that are present, the higher the increase of your Critical Damage, making your melee attacks even deadlier as you fight beside your Helminth companion.

More cysts are ideal to maintain a high amount of Critical Damage which is a good bonus along with the other effects that focus more on the damage from the Helminth.

The Strain Mods Set Bonus causes the Helminth Charger to grow a number of cysts that grow over a certain period, erupting after to spawn maggots that attack enemies.
