My Favourite Warframe Companions

Really, when you think about it, there aren’t that many options when it comes to companions in Warframe. You have robotic things that float behind you, you have cats and dogs, you have weird-looking infected dogs and you have mechanical chickens with guns. Of course, all these creatures do different things and provide different gameplay options, but they’re not the most… lovable things in the world. At least, the Sentinels aren’t. But considering the reactions I have gotten from showing people my freshly incubated companions, I don’t think everyone agrees that Kubrows and Kavats are as cute as I think… [Continue Reading]

Companions and Sentinels – Revenge of the Kavat

I’ve always held the belief that Sentinels, no matter what, were better than Kavats and Kubrows, and honestly I still think they’re better than MOAs, even though MOAs combine most of the things that Sentinels and Kavats and Kubrows do. But lately, I’ve been running around with a Smeeta Kavat and I think my opinions are changing slightly. Why am I running a Smeeta Kavat rather than my normal Carrier Prime? Well, it all started with the Week 2 Nightwave challenges. Two of the elite challenges involved hour long survivals, so we went off to do an hour long Kuva… [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]

On Giving Guns to Sentinels

I forget that Sentinels have weapons. I always do, up until I get Riven Mods for them from sorties. My Riven luck has petered out completely, gifting me a perfect mod for the Glaxion that only shoots 10% of the time and three shitty Sentinel weapon Rivens. Almost no one wants a Riven Mod for a Sentinel. In fact, not everyone wants guns on Sentinels in general. But why? Well firstly, giving weapons to Sentinels causes them to draw aggro. Which often means they get killed. Unlike Kubrows and Kavats, Sentinels can’t be revived unless you use the Regen or… [Continue Reading]

Some Good Mods for Sentinels

I’ve mentioned a few times that Sentinels are better than Kubrows and Kavats. The reasons are obvious. Sentinels don’t run face first into danger, they are far easier to maintain, they are cheaper to make, you can give them different weapons and they don’t need to be fed. But Sentinels have the added bonus of also having more initial polarities than companions too. Which means you can squeeze more mods on your floating buddies. But what mods should you use? Before we start, when companions, it matters where your mods go. For mods that make your Sentinel actively do things… [Continue Reading]

The Floating Nut Sack of Suckiness

The Floating Nutsack of Suckiness is probably one of the most useful things around. It happily floats behind you, sucking loot towards you and minding its own business. Give it a shotgun and it will shoot things. Give it more shields and it’ll buff you when your shield runs out. Give it an ammo case and it will convert dropped ammo you can’t use into dropped ammo you can’t use. Let it die in a fiery explosion and it has a chance of giving you rare items. I’m of course talking about the Carrier. The Carrier is one of a… [Continue Reading]
