Grendel is the newest Warframe coming to, well, Warframe. This large and powerful war machine was officially named and announced at TennoCon 2019 — alongside another character called Gauss. And he’s awfully unique among the many playable classes in-game. Rather than a strange, writhing mass of flesh and circuitry, Grendel is a solidly built battler. Their unique silhouette seems to reflect their abilities, too. Learn all about those and more in our guide to Grendel in Warframe!

Grendel Abilities: Warframe Guide
We don’t actually know any specific Grendel abilities in Warframe just yet! The the frame was apparently almost done in time for TennoCon this year, but some last-minute changes and/or issues stopped them from showing him off too much. The developers at Digital Extremes did mention that he likes to eat things. His “face” can apparently split open and devour things “like Unicron eating Cybertron.” That might imply that he can consume enemies for some kind of buff, or to heal. Although there is already a Warframe who does something very similar: Inaros. So maybe it’s not quite that simple.
In addition, Grendel has idle animations that seem clearly based on sumo wrestlers. Given the character’s size and shape, that might be another clue as to his moveset as well. Perhaps Grendel is some kind of grappler! While Warframe does have several melee classes, there currently isn’t anyone who fits that specific bill. We’ll just have to wait and find out for sure. Check back later for a complete list of Grendel abilities when the Warframe is out!
How to Unlock Grendel: Warframe Guide
Once again, we don’t actually know how to unlock Grendel just yet. Digital Extremes hasn’t told us! But there are usually only a few possibilities. You might need to complete a side quest, farm for rare materials in an open world, or battle a specific boss. There’s always a chance the devs might surprise us, too!
It’s also safe to say that Grendel will be the next Warframe added to the game. We saw footage of him being played on the TennoCon 2019 main stage and, according to the developer, he is nearly complete. Gauss was also announced at nearly the same time. But as of our last update Digital Extremes said it hadn’t quite figured out that frame’s moveset yet. Barring even more surprises, Grendel seems like he should show up playable in Warframe quite soon.
