7 Ways to Improve the Operator

I still hate those damn space kids. Right now, they’re a horrible waste of pixels and I hate them and their stupid, hypocritical observations. Yes, the Corpus are greedy, but we’re space ninja mercenaries killing them to get a stupid barrel for a shiny new gun, so get off your damn high horse. That being said, the Operators could all be improved. Here are some ways we can do that.   Level up Operators the same way you level up Warframes. Operators should start at unranked and get to level 30. By using your Operator, you should level him or… [Continue Reading]

On the Hell Hole that is the Sortie

Sorties are daily mini-quests that are super hard. They feature three super hard missions, with enemies ranging from level 50 to level 100. Each mission generally has an extra modifier, like enemies having stronger armour, fires exploding all around the mission, half health or shields, hugely decreased mobility or, if you’re lucky, weapon restrictions, such as Shotgun, Secondary, Sniper or Bow only. I’ve mentioned them before, and only done a handful of them because of their difficulty. Of course, being super hard, I generally avoided them. Despite my love for my Ignis and my Volt, they are simply not strong… [Continue Reading]

The Braton and the Soma

When I started Warframe and was given a choice of my first starter weapons, I decided to go for the MK1-Paris, the Lato and the MK1-Bo. A bow, a bog-standard pistol and a long, pointy stick. I could have alternatively chosen the MK1-Braton, the Kunai or the Skana. While the Kunai and the simple sword-like Skana are rather ninja-y, the MK1-Braton is an automatic rifle, about as nonsensical as the (admittedly boring and horrible) Lato or a flamethrower like the Ignis when it comes to ninja weaponry. That being said, the MK1-Paris eventually just wasn’t cutting it any more. The… [Continue Reading]

The Nonsense that is the Glast Gambit Quest

Who likes gambling? Raise your hands! Well, none of you probably like gambling as much as the fictional Nef Anyo, a nefarious piece of shit character from Warframe, who you could formally kick the shit out of on Phobos before he was replaced with the Sergeant. Anyway, this Nef is a complete cock. Because back in the last major update, he went and fucking kidnapped the children from a colony of peaceful folks called the Mycona and left them defenseless. The Perrin Sequence, a bunch of friendly Corpus, are offering vast amounts of money to pay their ransoms, but Nef… [Continue Reading]

Escaping the Stalker

Volt hated Spy missions. He hated them with a passion. Not because Volt couldn’t hack, in fact, Volt had mastered hacking pretty quickly. He didn’t mind the sneaking either, he actively enjoyed being sneaky at times. No, Volt hated Spy missions because of all those stupid energy fields and sensors and cameras and stuff that the Grineer and Corpus always chucked around their stupid vaults. Why couldn’t they just be in rooms with locked doors that needed to be hacked, rather than stupid jumping puzzles that required Volt to stop running, slow down and start doing stupid backflips and stuff… [Continue Reading]

What the Hell is Lunaro?

Okay. What was that? Why was that in my Warframe? What purpose does it have? Why is it called Lunaro? What does that even mean? Why am I writing an article about it? One sec. Let me explain. It all started when I joined a new clan after I was kicked out of my old one. The old clan was small and tiny and no one ever used it apart from trading. This new clan is a bit bigger, they let me contribute to things and people actually use it to actually talk to each other occasionally. Turns out, the… [Continue Reading]

Octavia’s Anthem – The Trouble with Cephalons

On Friday 24th, Update 20 came out for Warframe. Dubbed Octavia’s Anthem, it boasted “30 pages” of updates, fixes and changes. They were not wrong. The update was just over 1GB to download, amd featured the new Warframe Octavia, as well as the quest to obtain her. Octavia’s Anthem is an… interesting quest to say the least. NOTE: SPOILERS AHEAD. I can’t really write a non-spoiler-y review of this quest as it is SUPER lore-heavy. As always, you have to talk to someone. If you have access to the quest (which requires the War Within to be completed), you can… [Continue Reading]

On Obtaining Chroma

Chroma is the dragon-like character in Warframe. He breathes fire, he has elemental powers, he’s big and bulky and dragon-like and he rips his skin off and turns it into a dragon minion that kills people. But holy fucking Bahrag is this motherfucker hard to fucking get. I kid you not. To build Chroma, you need five things. Firstly you need to complete a rather simple quest, the New Strange, in which you see a ‘feral Chroma’ attacking Corpus and Grineer and have to track it down. Cephalon Simaris, a self-proclaimed gatherer of knowledge, keeper of the (purely digital) Santuary… [Continue Reading]

A Generic Trickster Warframe

So many games with multiple characters have one. A generic trickster character. Sometimes a good guy, most often an enemy. And most of the time they’re named Loki. Warframe is no exception to this unwritten rule of trickster characters. He doesn’t look like a trickster, and he’s not even the only trickster character around, but he’s definitely a slippery little monster. Loki was originally one of the choices in character you could have when you start Warframe, and funnily enough, he was replaced by Volt of all frames. Probably because Volt is much simpler as a character. Loki’s gameplay is… [Continue Reading]

The Pacifism Defect

So right now, the first ever Clan-based event is going on. Which is nowhere near as big a deal as it sounds. Events are somewhat common, you’ll see them from time to time, generally over weekends and the like, involving 3 missions that need to be completed to get a prize of some sort. Most of the time, it’s variations on a theme, like Darvo running away from debt collectors, or teasing new main-game content via events like Rathuum and the Index Preview. The Pacifism Defect isn’t much different. It features a new game mode, Evacuation (not to be confused… [Continue Reading]
