Highlights from Sands of Inaros include:
New Warframe: Inaros
Inaros – Risen from the sands, Inaros commands the desert’s fearsome power.
Inaros’ Abilities are as follows:
DESICCATION – Blast enemies with a wave of cursed sand that blinds them and steals their health.
DEVOUR – Hold power to trap target in quicksand and draw them in for devouring; this steals health and ultimately creates a friendly Sand Shadow.
SANDSTORM – Become a whirling spiral of sand that sends enemies flying and devours those trapped in quicksand.
SCARAB SWARM – Charge to transform health into hardened scarab armor. Discharge to blast enemies with a scarab swarm; survivors have their health drained and bestowed on allies.
New Quest: Sands of Inaros
Baro Ki’Teer is searching for riches under the sands of Phobos, but he needs Tenno help in order to find his fortune.
KAVAT – A feral Kavat. Feral Kavats can be found in all Derelict Missions except Defense.

LESION – An instrument of unrelenting harm in close combat.
MUTALIST CERNOS – Overcome with Infestation, this bow’s arrows now spread poisonous contagion to any surface they hit.
