Warframe Drifter Intrinsics (Combat, Riding, Opportunity & Endurance)

The Duviri Paradox has introduced a whole new world where The Drifter has become the main character of the story.

As you progress in Duviri and continue with different activities, you will eventually encounter tougher enemies or harder tasks.

To make things easier, The Drifter has their own set of Intrinsics, which can be upgraded to give them a boost in Duviri and sometimes when you are somewhere else.

How To Get Intrinsics?

Intrinsic Points can be obtained by doing various activities such as The Drifter when you are in Duviri and the amount depends on what you do.

With the addition of Drifter Intrinsics, plays can enjoy longer runs and accomplish more quickly with the boosts that are provided.

A good way to get Intrinsic Points is to continuously play the game and focus on Duviri to get as many as you can.
