The Three Best Void Fissure Missions You Should Always Try to Do

Not gonna lie, I open a lot of relics. To the point that I get low on Axi relics. Void fissures are a great, rather mindless pass time for me. Not only am I getting some sort of loot out of all these relics, but I can also get Forma or occasionally things that sell for a lot of plat. You don’t even need to join pre-made squads, you can often get random gold parts just by chance. That being said, not all Void Fissures are made equally. Some are way better or worse than others. Today, we’re going to… [Continue Reading]

Soloing Orokin Vaults

Orokin Vaults are an old, old part of Warframe. They’re the only place to get Corrupted Mods, which have both a negative and a positive. However, these vaults aren’t just old, they’re archaic as well. And it was only with the appearance of Deimos that they became far more accessible. What’s more important though is that these Orokin Vaults are easier to solo than ever. You don’t actually need to solo them though. I should probably start by pointing out that Deimos has normal matchmaking. Back when the Orokin Derelect was the home to Lephantis, you needed keys to access… [Continue Reading]

The Best Affinity Farms and XP Grinds in Warframe

Warframe is a game about grinding. Sure, there’s a small part of it that’s about skateboard grinding. But most of this game is about leveling up new gear. Not just the titular Warframes themselves, but guns and pets and swords as well. And amps, Archwings, Necramechs… The list goes on. In fact, there’s over 800 items that can be leveled up! And after a while, you kinda get tired of leveling things up. Luckily, there are some hot spots where you can level things up more quickly. The Obvious: Sedna’s Hydron and Saturn’s Helene There’s very little that can beat… [Continue Reading]

The Importance of Ranking Up Serration and Hornet Strike and why you are probably dealing no damage in Warframe

The other day, I was browsing through Region Chat when I saw a message. Someone wanted help with a particular mission. I looked up the mission in question, Carpo on Jupiter. At first, I though it was either the spy or rescue missions. Jupiter’s new-ness makes it so these missions are harder than they should be compared to previous planets. But no, Carpo is an exterminate. Of course, I offered to help. This was a MR5 Rhino after all, and Jupiter is a hard planet. After we finished the mission, I asked him to show me his mod config for… [Continue Reading]

Retvik’s Warframe Tier List for Lazy People

It’s genuinely hard to make a Warframe tier list. There’s so many ways you can categorize Warframes! Do you categorize them based on how much damage they can do? How many enemies they can kill? What enemies? What level of enemies? How about missions? Is a Warframe bad because it can’t survive 3 hours in a survival mission? Or is it just not suited for the job? So many questions, so many tier lists. Which is where I come in. This tier list is simple: How much bang do you get for your buck? What Warframes require the least amount… [Continue Reading]

5 Heists For Farming Easy Cash in Payday 2

I’ve gotten a few requests over the years to make a sequel to my “5 Heists that Give Easy XP” video, except regarding cash. But for the most part, I haven’t felt the need to actually do so, since the game pretty much drowns you in dollars no matter what you do, and you should be sitting comfortably after completing a few heists of any length or difficulty, so my main advice is to just play what you want and don’t worry about it. But I guess if you have an academic curiosity, or a minmaxing fetish, here are 5… [Continue Reading]

3 Free Programs That Will Turn You Into a Video Editor

I’ve been video-editing for most of my life, and these days I pay the bills making motivational-coaching vids for this YouTube/Instagram channel. And I’m here to tell you that if you have any interest,¬†any predilection whatsoever towards even maybe learning video editing, you should absolutely do so. You know how everyone tells high-schoolers to become programmers? That programming pays well due to being a highly skill-based, in-demand industry with no threat of robots stealing your job? Well, all those perks apply to video-editing too. But where to start, I hear you ask? With these three programs. Pick your favorite video… [Continue Reading]

A Biased Guide on What to Subsume and Use with Helminth

I’m pretty biased when it comes to the Helminth system. When it comes to the surface idea, I think the Helminth system is great. But when you look more deeply at it, you can tell that it’s all a mess. The costs are arbitrary and all over the place, the abilities chosen are weird, some have been arbitrarily nerfed. And, of course, there was the Marked for Death ability that made Ash good for about five seconds. That being said, I’ve been playing around a little with the Helminth system, and I’ve come up with a very simple, very biased… [Continue Reading]

A Beginner’s Guide to Shoutcasting

I’ve been amateur shoutcasting for 3 years, and I recently got voted by League Zero to cast the grand finals, but I’ve also never peaked beyond low gold in my game of choice. So don’t worry about your in-game talent level, you’re fine! Shoutcasting has almost a completely different skillset from actual playing (just like how most chess commentators aren’t grandmasters) so don’t feel discouraged about your own personal heights. (This goes for other possible esport positions as well, there are tons of options other than playing for breaking in!) If you’ve ever watched a shoutcast and thought it would… [Continue Reading]

How To Solo Gian Point and Other Railjack Missions

One of the larger grinds in Warframe is getting to level 10 in all four Intrinsics schools. The amount of intrinsics required doubles with every level, with level 10 requiring 512 intrinsics. While this seems like a massively daunting task, it is doable, just very slow. Over the recent Double Affinity weekend, I spent a lot of time playing Railjack to get those last few levels. But in doing so, I found that I had to regularly play on my own. This meant setting up my ship to be able to do everything myself. At the end of the double… [Continue Reading]
