Xaku arrived in Warframe with the Heart of Deimos update, bringing the community designed Broken Frame to fight the enemies of the Tenno. They are the 44th Warframe to be added to the game.

Xaku is held together by Void energy, and can break themselves apart upon command. As Xaku is made up of three different Warframe, twisted and entwined around each other by the furious energies of the Void, they are the first Warframe to not have an official gender.

How to get Xaku

To get your hands on Xaku, you need to make your way to Deimos and play through the Heart of Deimos quest. Once you have completed the quest, this will give you the Xaku blueprint.

To get the rest of the Xaku components, you will need to complete bounties for Mother, an NPC in the Necralisk. The Bounties that you will need to complete are as follows:

  • Neuroptics – Level 15-25 Bounty – Uncommon drop
  • Systems – Level 30-40 Bounty – Uncommon drop
  • Chassis – Level 40-60 – Uncommon drop
  • Chassis – Level 100 Steel Path – Uncommon drop

You will need to grind the bounties until all the components drop for you, then you will be able to build them with the required resources in your Foundry, and combine them with the main blueprint to create the Xaku Warframe.
