When is Styanax coming to Warframe?

Styanax is Warframe’s 50th frame and draws inspiration from Greek imagery as seen in its design. The frame was announced during Tennocon 2022 and revealed to have been originally named Hoplite, similar to the Greek fighter it was based on.

Styanax is to be released with the Veilbreaker update in September 2022 for free. Digital Extremes has announced that any player who logs in within two weeks of the update’s release can claim Styanax for free. Styanax will come with two alternate helmets as well as a signature shotgun named Afentis.

All Styanax Abilities in Warframe


Styanax is considered a support class and is capable of both dealing damage and defending enemies. Below are its abilities.

  • Axios Javelin – Styanax takes his spear and impales enemies in the wall behind them.
  • Tharros Strike – Perform a shield blow that stuns enemies around you and reduces their armor and shields.
  • Rally Strike – Depending on the number of enemies around Styanax, you will be able to taunt your enemies and buff your allies.
  • Final Showdown – Styanax will throw javelins at groups of enemies.

Another thing to note is that Styanax’s critical hit chance will increase based on how many shields he has and this doubles if he is using a crossbow.
