How to get Inaros in Warframe

Command the sands.


Inaros is an ancient Egyptian themed Warframe, commonly considered the hardest to kill Warframe in the game, with the correct build. Inaros eschews shields, relying on his substantial health bar and ability to generate armor to keep him alive.

Inaros can only be gotten by completing the Sands of Inaros quest, which is purchased from Baro Ki’Teer for 100 Ducats and 50000 Credits. The quest can be gotten from Baro as long as he is in the Relay, so it is available every two weeks. You will, however, need to be Mastery Rank 5 to purchase it.

During the Sands of Inaros quest, you will need to assist Baro Ki’Teer in a personal matter. You will be able to start the quest from the Codex. This is a very interesting quest and gives a deep look into Baro’s history. Much of it is spent charging an ancient vessel, by killing certain types of enemies, and the quest ends with a boss fight that doesn’t happen anywhere else in the game. Remember to scan the boss when you get a chance because you won’t get another one.

During the quest, you will earn the main blueprint for Inaros, along with the blueprints for his Chassis, Neuroptics, and Systems. You can then build the components in the Foundry, and combine them with the main blueprint to build the Warframe itself.
