Warframe Guide: How to get Harrow

How to Get Harrow in Warframe

It’s time for another new Warframe guide, this time we’re going back a bit in time to 2017. The introduction of this particular monk-like warrior is interesting, and he is arguably one of the more fun hybrids between DPS and defense in the game at the moment. Plenty of Warframe players have some issues figuring out these complex mechanics. The common questions of “How do I unlock this Warframe?” and “Where do I find this item?” are very common questions in the community. So following our guides on farming and building Warframes like Ivara, Mesa, Vauban and others, here’s a new how to get a Warframe guide. That way players know exactly what to do.

Harrow was introduced as part of a unique quest line, something not too common for new Warframes. He’s an incredibly enigmatic choice. Harrow is basically a Void-infused destroyer of all his enemies, and yours. Harrow also has the highest Overshield capacity of all Warframes in the game, making him a great defensive choice. Abilities like Condemn offer better defensive scaling. Penance is his DPS boost ability that sacrifices some of that defensive layer to earn more kills. Combining this with Thurible creates a lethal self-healing combo which makes this Warframe nearly unstoppable.

Dauntless and devout, the dark priest Harrow bestows upon his coven three virtues: salvation through sacrifice, redemption through vengeance, and ascension through defiance.

Getting the Blueprints is your first hurdle. Not only are each of the four Blueprints restricted to certain quest rewards, but they also have extremely low drop chances. Refer to the list below for the required area or quest you need to complete to have a shot. Luckily, the time you spend doing Kuva missions will also pay off when farming Kuva for the builds later, so kill two birds with one stone.

  • Blueprint – Chains of Harrow quest reward
  • Neuroptics  – Pago, Kuva Fortress [11.28%]
  • Chassis  – Corrupted Void Fissure enemies [3.00%]
  • Systems – Defection missions, Rotation B & C [7.52% (Rotation C) Tier I/11.28% (Rotation C) Tier II and III]

Here’s a quick primer on what missions on what planets to do if you’re farming basic resources. We’ve listed the most common of the resources you will need here.

  • Alloy Plate: Venus, Sedna, Jupiter, Ceres, Pluto and Phobos
  • Ferrite: Earth, Mercury, Neptune and Orokin Void
  • Rubedo: Earth, Europa, Phobos, Sedna, Pluto and Orokin Void
  • Polymer Bundle: Venus, Mercury and Uranus
  • Plastids: Saturn, Phobos, Uranus, Eris and Pluto
  • Salvage: Mars, Jupiter and Sedna
  • Circuits:  Venus, Ceres, and the Kuva Fortress

Then there’s the rare drops. These are pretty easy for those wanting Harrow to farm, with one major exception.

  • Neural Sensors: Missions on Jupiter and the Kuva Fortress
  • Control Module: Void Missions are a good source for this, as are higher level missions on Europa and Neptune
  • Kuva: The regular Kuva Siphon (mission level 25-35) and the Kuva Flood (mission level 80-100). Successfully destroying one Kuva Siphon will grant around ‍550-700 Kuva
  • Orokin Cell: Defeat Lech Kril (Mars, War) or General Sargas Ruk (Saturn) for the best drop chance. Also found on Saturn, Ceres and Orokin Derelict.
  • Cryotic: Complete Excavation cycles in the Extraction game mode
  • Oxium: Oxium Osprey random spawns are your best bet, these can also be found by opening the 3rd Cache in Grineer Sealab Sabotage missions.

To assemble Nyx, you will need the following resources for each part, and some extras for final assembly:


  • 15,000 Credits
  • 20,000 Alloy Plate
  • 25,000 Salvage
  • 800 Oxium
  • 5 Orikin Cell


  • 15,000 Credits
  • 4,000 Polymer Bundle
  • 1,500 Rubedo
  • 2,000 Plastids
  • 5 Neural Sensors


  • 15,000 Credits
  • 25,000 Ferrite
  • 1,000 Cryotic
  • 2,500 Circuits

Full Frame

  • 25,000 Credits
  • 1 Harrow Chassis
  • 1 HarrowNeuroptics
  • 1 Harrow Systems
  • 2,000 Kuva

Once you have all the Blueprints, head to the Foundry and start build. Although remember, it’s going to take time. And the few days you have to wait can be better spent doing other farming or leveling up gear, so save your Platinum and don’t rush it. Also, check to make sure you have an open slot before beginning the build.

Warframe is free-to-play now on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch. The developers recently deployed the Rising Tide update, which introduced the first of the player-built ships, the Railjack. You will want to jump on that to be ready when Empyrean drops next year.
