Warframe Railjack Revisited Part 1 Launches Tomorrow on PC, Console Soon

Share this:

Digital Extremes has announced that after some testing, the first part of the Warframe Railjack Revisited update will be launching tomorrow on PC and will include a massive changelog.

Just how massive you ask? Well according to Digital Extremes there will be a total of 29 pages that go in-depth with all the fixes, balancing, quality of life, and other improvements. This pales in comparison to the tiny notes we published a few days ago, so be prepared for some major reading tomorrow! As for the reason why it’s called “part 1”, Digital Extreme’s Community Director Rebbeca Ford confirmed during the stay at home stream that this update would only focus on three core areas, with part 2 focusing on the bigger picture. Those core areas are the pacing, balance, and the tools of Railjack.

We’ll be sure to post the full Warframe Railjack Revisited patch notes once they’re live tomorrow for PC, but for now, you can take a look at the short snippet of the previously posted down below.

A preview of some of the changes included in the 29 pages Warframe Railjack Revisited update tomorrow:

General Changes:

  • Doubled the Railjack’s innate loot-pickup (Vacuum) Range.
  • Changing the pacing and general feel of all Railjack Piloting and movement to be less reliant on the optimal strategy of “Single strafe Boost then Repeat”:
    • Doubled the Raijack’s base Speed.
    • Lowered Boost Speed by 75%
    • Increased the Boost Speed cost of dodge.
    • Increased Boost Drain (8 – 15)
  • Made scale a factor in damage reduction and bonuses. This means Archwings and their weapons will do more damage to ships, while also taking less damage from them.
  • Fixed inconsistencies with the sensitivities of the emplacement positions (side turrets now match the pilot turret)

Ship Combat Changes:

  • Changed all Health, Shield, and Armour to use the new Tenno versions introduced in Warframe Revised.
  • Halved the Health and Armour of all Griner Fighters.
  • Randomized the number of Fighters required to be killed during the Extermination portion of the Skirmish mission so it’s not always the same.
  • Decreased the amount of time between landing the killing shot to the enemy explosion on Fighters (.1 – 1 sec) down from (1-3) seconds. The effect of this will be not only a quicker pace but also a quicker time to spawn any drops.
  • Decreased Railjack Shield Recharge delay from 5 to 3 seconds.
  • Railjack Weapon heat build-up changes:
    • Apoc – Sigma/Lavan/Nidar heat build-up reduced from 20 to 12. Zekti from 40 to 20
    • Carcinoxx – Sigma/Lavan/Nidar heat build-up reduced from 10 to 8. Zekti from 20 to 12
    • Cryophon – Zekti from 400 to 350
    • Photo( – Sigma/LavanNidar heat build-up reduced from 10 to 8. Zekti from 20 to 12

On-Foot Combat Changes:

  • Reduced the Health of all on-foot Gnneer Railjack enemies by half.
  • Removed scaled damage controllers from all on-foot Gnneer Railjack enemies.

Pacing Changes:

  • Added Caps for the amount of simultaneous Railjack Hazards (Fire, Electric, and Breaches). Your Railjack can only have 1 of each Hazard active at a time.
  • Drastically decreased the frequency of RJ Hazard types.
  • Made each RJ Hazard type more harmful to the ship.
  • Increased the amount of Omni Revolite required to remove hazard events but increased the XP gained.
  • Increased the number of fighters in all alert stages.
  • Enemies now spawn much closer to the Railjack vs. 1000. km away.

Archwing Changes/Fixes:

  • Longstanding issues with the usability of Archwing Melee has been fixed – it’s whacking day -let us know!
  • Archwing Melee Range mods now affect aim assist lock-on range.
  • Archwing Gun stats normalized – space combat now uses ground ‘Heavy Weapon- stats.
  • UI Lead indicator has been added to relevant Archwing Guns.

Systemic Changes:

  • The Kuva Lich ‘Valence Transfer’ has been added for built Armaments and Components-players can now Transfer progress and stats to the new better parts, boosting them.
    • Requires Dirac to perform the operation
    • Combining matching tiers gives 10% boost in stats
    • Combining lower tier gives 5% boost in stats,
    • Two tiers removed (Mk3 with Mk1) is 2% boost

Affinity and Intrinsic Gain Changes:

  • Doubled Affinity-to-Intrinsic Point conversion. You will now gain Intrinsics 2x faster.
  • Increased the earned Affinity on killing Elite Fighters and Outriders.

Avionics Changes:

When it comes to Avionics changes, there’s an overarching goal: Simplify Avionic management.

  • Each Integrated Avionic Type will now only exist with a single Manufacturer rather than three Manufacturer flavors.

  • The ‘retired’ Integrated Avionics will be removed from the player’s inventory via a script.

  • The remaining Integrated Avionic for each Type will take on the values of the previously highest valued Avionic of its Type.

  • ALL Dirac used to upgrade Integrated Avionics will be refunded. This applies to both retired and remaining Avionics

  • ALL remaining Integrated Avionics will have their Upgrades drained.


Like always, the PC version of Warframe will be receiving this patch first with the console versions (PS4, Xbox One, Switch) coming shortly after.
