Where to get the Acrid in Warframe

The Acrid is a Grineer-designed pistol with innate Toxin damage. This status effect deals poison damage over time, which is most effective against flesh and proto-shield armor classes. This weapon can only be found, researched, and built using a Bio Lab. The Bio Lab can only be located inside a Warframe clan dojo. This requirement can make it difficult to procure one if you’re a solo player, but it isn’t impossible to earn it.

The easiest method of accessing a Bio Lab is to join a Warframe clan. You can use the in-game recruiting channel or ask players when you’re playing public missions. Clans are always looking to recruit members, which is the simplest method for researching the Acrid blueprint.

If you don’t want to join a ready-made clan, you can make one yourself. This is a costly endeavor but not a difficult one. Once you have made your Warframe clan, you must construct a Bio Lab. At the Bio Lab, you can begin researching the Acrid blueprint.
