After the update in 2019, known as The Old Blood, Grendel was introduced in the Warframe.

He is also known as Kirby because he can eat his enemies and gets bonuses by doing it.

The farming process of Grendel is quite complex and is only meant for experienced players.

Grendel Warframe

In this guide, we will discuss how to get Grendel Warframe in detail. We will also discuss the best Warframes and Weapons, which are helpful while doing Grendel missions.


We will try to explain where you must start and how many resources you will need to get Grendel.


  • 🎮 Grendel is arguably the most difficult frame to acquire in Warframe.
  • 🚀 The specific route to find Grendel in Warframe can be confusing, but once you know the symbols to look for, it becomes much easier to locate the NPCs.
  • 🛡️ Grendel mission disables all your abilities and passives, making it a challenging survival mission.
  • 🛡️ The defense mission requires surviving 20 waves, making it the most challenging part of the mission.
  • ⚔️ Trinity is the best support frame in the entire game, offering more than other frames like Oberon or wisp.
  • 🩸 Grendel’s Blessing ability provides 50% damage reduction and full health restoration, making him a formidable tank in battle.
  • 🎯 Antimatter Drop ability allows Nova to throw a ball that, when shot with a pistol, can kill groups of enemies and provide damage reduction.

Buying the Blueprint Locators

Buying the Blueprint Locators

Before farming the blueprints, you must buy “Locators” from the Arbitration Honors Trader. You must visit the Arbiter of Hexis syndicate location and head to the person who is near the entrance.

You must buy three locators from him. Buying these locators will require 25 Vital Essences for each locator.

Vital Essences can be dropped from Arbitration Drones or obtained as a reward by doing the Arbitration missions. You must grind until you have collected 75 Vital Essences.

Using the Blueprint Locators

After purchasing the locators, a new mission node will appear in Europe and stay there permanently. The enemies in this mission are in the level range of 40-45, and you cannot use any operational mode or Warframes mode in this mission. That is why it is recommended to complete this mission with a premade group of allies.

The Three Different Missions Are:

1. The Grendel Neuroptics Locator

The Grendel Neuroptics Locator is a 20-minute survival mission that unlocks the Archaeo fighter. You will get a Grendel Neuroptics Blueprint as a reward after completing the mission.

2. The Grendel Chassis Locator

The Grendel Chassis Locator is a 15-minute wave defense mission that unlocks the Icefield of Riddah. You will get a Grendel Chassis Blueprint as a reward after completing the mission.

3. The Grendel Systems Locator

The Grendel Systems Locator is an excavation mission where you must collect the 800 Cryptic, and it unlocks the Mine of Karishh. You will get a Grendel Systems Blueprint as a reward after completing the mission.

After completing all three missions, you will need to craft the three parts. The primary blueprint can be purchased from the in-game stereo for the exchange of 35.000 Credits.

These Require Resources That You Can Farm For:

Grendel Neuroptics


  • 15,000 Credits
  • 3,800 Alloy Plate
  • 3,500 Ferrite
  • 5 Control Module
  • 2 Argon Crystal
  • 12 hours build time.

Grendel Chassis

  • 15,000 Credits
  • 30 Kuaka Spinal Claw
  • 25 Condroc Wing
  • 20 Tralok Eyes
  • 15 Murkray Liver
  • 12 hours build time.

Grendel Systems

  • 15,000 Credits
  • 1,125 Circuits
  • 125 Fish Meat
  • 100 Fish Oil
  • 10 Morphic
  • 12 hours build time.

Some of these resources are very rare and harder to obtain. You can obtain Condroc Wings by killing Condrocs on the Plains of Eidolon.

Here are all the resources which you will need to craft Grendel:

  • Murray Liver – you can simply check-in ocean biomes for this rare fish in the plains of the eidolon. Then, it would help if you cut in Cetus for the liver.
  • Control Module – You can obtain it by completing Neptune, Europa, and Void missions.
  • Argon Crystals – They are void-only, dropping, and disappear in 24-48 hours, so it is recommended to farm them only when you need them.
  • Morphic – They can be found on Mercury, Europa, Mars, and Pluto.
  • Orokin Cell – These are very important for the different Warframes and can be found on Ceres, Saturn, and by completing Orokin Derelict missions.

After gathering all the essential resources, you can finally start the crafting process of Grande’s parts. You must wait for 72 hours for the completion of the crafting process.

Best Warframes and Weapons for Grendel Missions

For this mission, you can choose any of your favorite weapons with high base damage, such as Tigris Prime, a weapon that can innate elemental damage such as Ignis Wrath.

It is always recommended to complete the Grendel missions along with the teammates.

The best Warframes types which you can consider during Grendel missions are:

1. Defensive Warframes

Defensive Warframes

Frost or Limbo will be perfect defensive Warframes for this mission because they have the power to shield everything from the incoming damage.

2. Supportive Warframes

Supportive Warframes

Trinity is considered significant when it comes to supportive Warframes. You can also choose Wisp because of her excellent health regeneration ability.

3. DPS


For the DPS, you can either choose Saryn or Mesa. Both are great damage dealers.

Final Words

Grendel is a fantastic Warframe, but its crafting process is immensely more complex than the other Warframes.

You must start by buying the locators and then using them to obtain the blueprint for the essential resources required to craft Grindel.

You can purchase Gridnel’s major blurring from the in-game store.
