Warframe: Hotfix 33.0.4 Applies Notable Changes to Undercroft Following Community Feedback

Hotfix 33.0.4 Twitter/@PlayWarframe

Warframe players were having a tough time protecting the Defense Target at The Undercroft, which prompted developer Digital Extremes (DE) to launch Hotfix 33.0.4, now available on all platforms.

The Undercroft was introduced as part of Warframe: The Duviri Paradox, and it is an area where Dominus Thrax's influence is weak, allowing players to fight in their preferred Warframes. That said, DE made notable adjustments to defense missions in The Undercroft to alleviate concerns about the Defense Target getting destroyed way too easily.

In Hotfix 33.0.4, the Defense Target's level now scales between stages. This occurs alongside enemy level scaling between stages up to level 50, after which, the scaling rate gradually decreases to maintain a level of challenge in The Circuit. Furthermore, the company reduced the damage the Defense Target takes from Thrax units.

While the tweaks to defense missions in The Undercroft are appreciated, the bug that occasionally prevents Defense Targets from spawning as intended still remains a problem to this day. Hopefully, the company can resolve this soon.



  • Increased the Defense Target's starting level in The Steel Path from 76 to 101.
  • Increased the rate at which the Defense Target's Shields recharge.
  • Defense rounds will now only start when someone enters the Defense Target's radius.
    • This addresses enemies rushing to the Defense Target before players have even found it and positioned themselves to defend it.


  • Added the Sun & Moon, Edun, Sampotes, Azothane, and Syam Blueprints (for Warframe use) to Cephalon Simaris' Offerings for those who accidentally sell theirs.
    • The Sun and Moon Blueprint is purchasable from his offerings after completing The Duviri Paradox Quest (Quest reward). The Edun, Sampotes, Azothane, and Syam Blueprints are purchasable after obtaining the Drifter version (via Platinum or Pathos Clamps).
  • Updated the Zylok, Despair, Hate, and Sibear's Incarnon Mode VFX.
  • Made adjustments to Luscinia's volume, gain, and radius in the Undercroft.


Warframe Hotfix 33.0.4 is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
