C̶̹̃h̴̊̍̐͜i̶͓̩͛̽m̸̨̈́͘e̴̤̒ŕ̸͉͋̕å̸̙̭͕ is coming…
Update 23.10.6 has been sent off to cert! This mainline update is jam packed with all kinds of hotness and featured goods from PC Update 23.9.0 to 23.10.6. From the new Arbitrations (previous WIP title of Lethal Alerts) to the Daily Tribute changes, QOL changes and fixes, and everything in between, Update 23.10.6 is a hefty ~2.5GB worth of the latest for Warframe.
What is a mainline update you ask? To quote [DE]Rebecca:
“It’s the type of update where we send out everything we’ve been working on that’s accumulated that isn’t related to a bigger picture feature.”
Our last mainline update for consoles was back in July with the release of The Sacrifice, so you can expect a good helping of notes once the update drops!
This thread will be updated with the release date once we have passed Cert. With all that said, let’s take a glimpse into what Chimera: Update 23.10.6 will bring:
ARBITRATIONS: LETHAL ALERTS
The Arbiters of Hexis are providing you with the chance to fight with something unknown to most Warframe missions: Mortality! Arbitrations are single-life missions that put you in a scenario where you have to make your only life count!
Prepare for the arrival of Lethal Alerts! Complete all nodes in the Star Chart now to unlock Arbitrations when the update goes live.

Our goal with the Daily Tribute changes is to make it only slightly more flexible while still respecting the core need to login frequently. Personalization is a huge part of Warframe and we think that this changes the Daily Tribute system to better reflect that. Read more on the changes coming by checking out the Dev Workshops:
- We have added custom lines and videos to each Daily Tribute which brings a Warframe NPC out to greet you on your new day.
- There is a fixed Day 5 Reward of 25,000 Credits and 1000 Endo.
- The Lodestar Syandana and the Lodestar Armor Set – they are staying at Day 800 / 1000 respectively.
We have increased Miasma’s damage multiplier from 2x to 4x to encourage even more synergy between Miasma and Spores. By increasing the damage multiplier we have reduced the following to compensate for the change:
- Miasma base Damage has been halved.
- Spores scaling Damage per second cap has been reduced from 10 to 7.
- Revenant’s Reave will follow the direction of your reticle as opposed to always in a straight line. This allows you to steer it freely. You can of course maintain the original behaviour of a straight line by simply not aiming your reticle, but for those of you wanting better control over where Reave goes are now able to freely steer!
- Revenant’s Reave wall width will be affected by Range Mods.
- Revenant’s Reave will also sheds Status Effects on cast and applies them to targets it hits.
Phantasma Alt Fire Changes:
- Phantasma’s Alt Fire homing projectile amount is no longer based on charge time. Alt Fire will release 5 total homing projectiles.
- Phantasma’s Alt Fire damage per projectile will scale based on charge time.
Dojo Additions & Changes:

Weapon Aiming Changes:
While this is largely under the hood, we want to detail out some changes we made to how Weapons are fired, particularly projectile weapons. We’ve added some new behavior that makes it easier to hit targets very close to the camera, eliminates strange sideways flying projectile and can be applied to any projectile (projectiles with gravity were previously excluded from the coolness. The basic idea now is: if you’re aiming at it, you’ll hit it.
Forest Sabotage Changes/Fixes:
- Added a progress wheel to UI to show Antitoxin Strength.
- Antitoxin console disables when strength is at 100% to avoid wasting Antitoxins.
- Slightly increased strength score of common and uncommon Antitoxins.
- Fixed incorrect Affinity reward scaling for Antitoxins.
- Fixed broken materials on the Antitoxin console.
Update on Operator Suit Mesh Changes:
Since we reverted the Operator Suit Mesh Changes introduced in PC Update 23.10.0 to restore Operator Suit Meshes to their pre-Update 23.10 state, they will not be coming in this update. A more careful re-release of the Operator Suit Mesh Changes will come at a later date.
Virtual Cursor Changes/Fixes:
