Things the Scarlet Spear Operation Probably Needs

Operation Scarlet Spear has left an awful taste in people’s mouths. Despite being a long-wanted event, the amount of grind, the bugs and the all-round confusion have made the operation a pain in the butt. People aren’t enjoying the missions at all. But while bugs and the like will be fixed eventually, here are a few… quality of life features I think this operation needs. Better Reward Scaling on Ground Missions No matter how you look at it, it’s better to do Murex if you want credits. While Murex are slower missions, they are somewhat easier to cheese and give… [Continue Reading]

Operation Scarlet Spear is Absolutely Pointless Solo

There’s a LOT of problems with Operation Scarlet Spear, which I’ll get to in time. But for me, right now, the biggest issue is that these missions are arbitrarily harder if you do them solo. You are forced to join a team if you want decent rewards or if you want, well, efficiency. There’s no way around it. Is solo doable? Definitely. In fact, solo is perfectly doable. With just a Limbo, you can make the Railjack mission simple as heck. The ground mission requires nothing more than a Sarpa to get rid of the Condix’s armour. I managed to… [Continue Reading]

Operation Scarlet Spear – A Simple Event With An Awful Grind

After a promise of “early March”, Operation Scarlet Spear has arrived, alongside a bunch of other changes. The other changes are numerous, mostly bug fixes, as well as a Nova skin and some augments. But the Operation is… something else. And not in a good way. For starters, it’s buggy. This is basically guaranteed for every new event that comes out these days. Scarlet Spear is no different. It’s full of crashes. Okay, sure, a lot of this is being fixed as we go along, but it’s a pain in the ass. Between people crashing and the bugs, not much… [Continue Reading]

Operation Very Slow Mobile Defense

So there is a new Operation out in Warframe. For those who don’t know what an Operation is, it’s basically an event that lasts about a week or so and requires players to do specific tasks. The Razorback Armada and the Balor Fomorian missions for example are old Operations that are brought back occasionally. Other Operations include Plague Star, Ambulas Reborn and the Pacifism Decect. Ghoul Purge is also basically an Operation but that one reappears on a regular basis because weapons are locked behind it. The new Operation, Buried Debts, seems to have arrived in two parts. The first… [Continue Reading]

Random Tips for Plague Star – the new Operation

Fancy a chance at getting the new Hunter series of set mods, that work on companions? Fancy a chance to get the Snipetron? How about the Ether Daggers which you probably sold after doing that New Strange quest then realised that you needed them for mastery rank? Fancy walking across the entirety of the Plains in order for the same rewards to be repeated over and over? If any of those appeal to you, then the new Operation: Plague Star is for you! So a massive infested meteor has crashed in the Plains of Eidolon and now it’s spitting infested… [Continue Reading]

Ambulas Reborn – Grinding Giant Robot Emus

On Thursday 4th of May, Digital Extremes released Ambulash Reborn, a new Operation (i.e. mini event) for Warframe. Frohd Bek, one of those annoying Corpus guys who likes to make as much as possible, is funding and prototyping a new super beefed up MOA robot to replace the old Ambulas model manufactured on Venus. This new Ambulas is tied to an Animo system, which allows the giant mechanical emus with laser guns on their faces to adapt to their enemies. Frohd Bek promises plenty of Grofit – growth and profit – to anyone who backs his bad 80’s-advert-styled proposals. Well,… [Continue Reading]
