The On Call Crew Command Could be Better

After much grinding, I have finally unlocked Rank 9 Command. This unlocks the On Call ability, allowing me to summon one of my Railjack crew to help me in normal missions. It’s a nice idea to tie in Railjack and normal missions a little bit further. But, honestly, after playing around with it, I find it lacking. First off though, I’m an idiot. Smarter people than I managed to unlock all 9 ranks of the Command Intrinsic almost instantly. On the other hand, I had to grind my way back up from zero. You see, we actually got ALL our… [Continue Reading]

A Four-Legged Saryn

Lately, I’ve been bringing a new companion to missions. The good little boy/girl happily follows me around as I blow things up. And, despite all the carnage around me, it rarely dies and instantly revives itself. I’m of course talking about Vulaphylas. You know, the hideous fox-like cat-like companions from Deimos. But one particular breed of Vulpaphyla does way more work than the others. Let’s talk about our friend the Panzer Vulpaphyla. Panzer Vulpaphyla are the uncommon breed of mutated Kavat out on Deimos. But when it comes to usage, they are by far the most common. This is mostly… [Continue Reading]

Infested Doggos and Infested Kitties of the Cambion Drift

The Heart of Deimos has brought us new companions! The last companion we got was the third type of Kavat, the vampire-like Vasca. The Vasca appeared in the Plains of Eidolon revamp update. Since then, companions have been pretty quiet. But now we have six new ones! SIX! Three Kavats and three Kubrows. Oh, sorry, they’re called Vulpaphyla and Predasites. Anyway, let’s have a look at them! Three cats that look like foxes, three dogs that look like sphinxes. For some reason, the appearances of these pets are reversed. We have infested fox-like creatures with long snouts that are actually… [Continue Reading]

An Adorable Mess of Mutated Infectious Tissue

Helminth Chargers are weird. They’re Kubrows but they’re not Kubrows. They are weirdly cute, infested monstrosities made by squeezing a pink and grey zit on your Warframe onto a Kubrow egg and then incubating said egg. They shouldn’t exist, but they do. But what do these weird mutant dog-like beings actually do? To be honest, I’m not sure. The two breeds of Kavats we have both have a use – one gives huge crit buffs and the other gives random buffs at entirely the wrong times. The other breeds of Kubrow all do various things, even if those various things… [Continue Reading]

Like Sentinels but Worse

One of the biggest draws of Fortuna is the ability to build your own MOA, the two-legged mechanical critters the Corpus normally throw at us and we massacre in droves. MOAs were said to be a cross between Sentinels and Pets, giving you the power of both, while also having their own powers and abilities. In theory, that sounds bloody amazing. But having used MOAs? I’m not so sure. There are currently three types of MOA and they all look cute and derpy rather than like killing machines. Even the bog-standard Shockwave MOAs look more menacing than the bulky, lumpy… [Continue Reading]
