Warframe Heart of Deimos: Hotfix: 29.2.2 Patch Notes


  • Made numerous micro-optimizations to scene rendering.
  • Optimized Local Reflections.
  • Optimized Foliage Rendering in the Enhanced Graphics Engine.
  • Optimized Visibility Culling speed and memory footprint slightly.
  • Optimized initial install size slightly.
  • Made systemic micro-optimizations to the animation system.
  • Made a micro-optimization to the Foot IK system.
  • Made a micro-optimization to HUD rendering.
  • Minor quality improvements for hair rendering.


  • Added game settings for tweaking deadzone values and other input behaviour for controller analog sticks. Each analog stick now has three settings as outlined on https://www.warframe.com/gamepad. This should improve the accuracy for movement controls in particular, which previously used a square deadzone, resulting in inconsistent mapping for diagonal inputs.
  • Removed ability to open the Helminth screen by fast-traveling using Operator mode, this led to issues with your Warframe becoming invisible.
  • Updated Ivara's Quiver, Vauban's Minelayer, Xaku's The Lost, and Titania's Tribute ability descriptions to list the sub-abilities and a brief general description of what they do. Tips related to these sub-abilities for each Warframe have also been edited for accuracy as a result.
  • Updated Zephyr’s Airburst ability description to include the tap-and-hold mechanic.
