Warframe Update 1.96 February 23 Brings Octavia Prime

Warframe Update 1.96 February 23

Tennos, a new Warframe patch is out today and it adds a fan-favorite Octavia Prime! The Warframe update 1.96 February 23 patch is live now, and we have the complete details below via the press release sent out.

Warframe Update 1.96 February 23 Patch Notes:

Before you dive in to the Octavia Prime info, here’s the latest hofix rolled out by Digital Extremes:

Nightwave Arcane Helmet Clarification:
Nora Night’s latest Cred Offerings include the Arcane Scorpion Helmet Blueprint, a long retired item since Hotfix 13.2.3. This item was actually meant to be a brand new Operator cosmetic, Operator Wolf Hood, but the backend data got a little switched around. The Arcane Scorpion Helmet Blueprint will run it’s store life span, at which time the new Operator Wolf Hood will take its intended place in future rotations.

Nihil Boss Fight Rerun
Are you prepared to face Nihil once again, Tenno?

Nora Night’s Cred Offerings will provide both the Nihil Key and Oubliette required to face off against Nihil. Once you have acquired both, interact with the Oubliette Decoration to fight.

The Nihil Key grants you one fight against Nihil, at which you’ll need to acquire another Key to go again. Nora Night will offer the Nihil Key in her Cred Offerings periodically.

For those who did not originally fight Nihil during Glassmaker, using this Key route will grant you the Vitrica heavy blade. Tenno who have already acquired the Vitrica can enjoy an End of Mission Riven Mod reward!

Look for the Nihil Key in next week’s Cred Offerings!


  • Fixed a Description error that stated ‘Rifle Riven’ in the Luminous Brilliance Bundle vs ‘Kitgun Riven
