This is Volt, a versatile warrior.

Volt’s arsenal is powerful and electrifying. Handle with care, Tenno.

—Lotus

 

Volt has the power to wield and bend electricity. He is highly versatile, armed with powerful abilities that can damage enemies, provide cover and complement the ranged and melee combat of his cell. The electrical nature of his abilities make him highly effective against the Corpus, with their robots in particular. He is one of three starter options for new players.

 

Acquisition

Volt’s blueprint and components can be researched and purchased from the Tenno Research Lab. Volt can also be bought complete from Teshin for ‍60,000 Standing once players have achieved Typhoon rank in the Conclave.

 

Trivia

  • The volt is a measure of electrical potential, a type of potential energy that could be released if an electrical current is allowed to flow, hence Volt’s electrical essence.
  • During closed beta, Overload was notoriously overpowered as a result of a bug that would allow the lightning to daisy-chain throughout a level, killing any enemy that had spawned.
  • Before Update 7 Volt was one of the 3 initial starter Frames. He was replaced by Mag due to a desire of the developers to have a female starter. Volt then replaced Loki as a starting Warframe in Update 14.
  • Volt has had three drop changes since Update 11; prior to Update 11 his components dropped from the J3-Golem on Jupiter. After The Hunt For Alad V, his components were moved to Survival mission rewards, making him the second Warframe obtainable through regular mission rewards (the first was Banshee). Update 12 moved Volt and Banshee to the Tenno Research Labs, and the both of them have remained there since.
  • The rings on Volt’s arms are considered customizable armor parts and will be removed if any other arm plates are used.
  • Volt’s default energy color appears as deep orange-yellow on his body, but the color of any electricity he emits is a darker blue/purple.
  • The back of Volt’s tunic stretches when Volt’s legs move apart.
  • Volt is the first Warframe to receive 5 Augment Mods, 2 of them being Conclave exclusive.
  • Volt’s Neuroptics is a requisite ingredient for Chroma.
