Earth has been long abandoned due to its toxic atmosphere. It is now overgrown with mutated jungle structures that have devoured most of the prior signs of civilization. Infestation and roaming wildlife still inhabit its surface but anything of value was stripped by scavengers generations ago.

—Earth Fragment

Earth is a planet under Grineer control, and is the first planet players can access. It is linked through junctions to Mars and Venus. Lua, the Earth's moon, becomes accessible from Earth (without a junction) after players complete the quest The Second Dream.

The Assassination Target for Earth is Councilor Vay Hek, located in the mission node Oro. Vay Hek drops the component blueprints for the parts of the Hydroid Warframe. A Mastery Rank of 5 or higher is required to access the boss mission.

Earth is the only planet to feature the Grineer Forest Tileset. Every four hours, the forest tileset will change from day to night, mimicking the day cycles in real life. The change will feature different vegetation that can be scanned for extracts that are used to craft Antitoxins, Apothics and medical regeneration packs, with Sunlight variants during the day and Moonlight variants at night.

Invasion Missions: The Infested will always appear as an "Opposing" faction during Invasion missions.

Grineer Infested Wild



  • Earth is the easiest place to farm Neurodes, with a large amount of low leveled enemies, excellent for longer farming runs.


  • Before Vor's Prize, Earth had higher level enemies similar to that of Mars.
  • Earth never has Invasions or Infestation Outbreaks, perhaps due to the low level.
  • Most of the names of Earth's missions are from a variety of Earth-related topics, such as:
  • Despite being previously described as a "desolate, ruined world" Earth has very lush forests, which Vay Hek tried to destroy during The Cicero Crisis. This original description is probably no longer canon.
  • The Strata Relay was the first player hub destroyed by one of Vay Hek's Balor Fomorians in the Eyes of Blight event.
  • Earth is the earliest planet on which Wildlife can be encountered, as it is the home of Feral Kubrows.
    • This also means that Earth is the earliest place for Kubrow mods to be obtained.
  • Earth seems to have the largest variety of enemy levels in the game, with most missions being at levels 1-8, Vay Hek's Assassination at 20-25, and The Law of Retribution being at levels 70-80.
  • Earth is the first and only planet to have a day-night cycle, which changes every 4 hours (12, 4, 8 am and pm eastern American time) with the exception of its Dark Sector nodes, Coba and Tikal, which remain in the dark.
  • Earth has no Survival missions; they are replaced with Excavation missions.
