The 5 Best Skills in Payday 2

There are enough skills in Payday 2 that you can craft almost any build you want. This is awesome for seasoned players, but new players can be a bit overwhelmed by all the choices available, especially when you’ve only unlocked a few skill points.

Today, we’re covering The 5 Best Skills in Payday 2. (Note that we’re talking loud, there are enough skill points to just… [Continue Reading]

Great Weapons for Warframe Newbies

You’re new. You want a new weapon. Your starter weapons are getting old and tired. You NEED something else. I get it. That’s why I’ve got a couple of good, strong weapons that a newbie Warframe player can easily get a hold of. And by newbie, I mean these are accessible to players at around Mastery Rank 2-4, who have access to all planets up to Ceres. After Ceres, and particularly at Saturn and Uranus, things tend to get difficult. Europa in particular is also a very tough moon. There is a quick thing I will mention before I continue.… [Continue Reading]

A Quick Guide to Low Level Mastery

No one really tells you this, but one of the main ways to level up in Warframe is to increase your Mastery Rank, by leveling items – everything from Warframes to Kavats – up to level 30. Mastery Ranks, as much as I’ve complained about them, are a good thing. You get extra space for Standing for Syndicates, the Plains of Eidolon, Simaris and Conclave, you get a loadout slot every few rank ups, you get extra mod space whenever you level a new weapon and you get more space for Void Traces, meaning you can make more relics radiant.… [Continue Reading]

The All-Rounders Volt Build, by an Everyday Volt Main

Volt makes up 50% of my total playtime in Warframe. I know him mostly inside out, from his weird two pairs of eyes to his little butt-cape. I regularly take Volt into lots of things and somehow manage to stay alive even when everyone else around me is dying. I honestly think it’s time to go through my build and how I manage to take him everywhere, from Kuva Fortress Assault to Sortie Defense, and not be totally useless. In hindsight, this might be because I am simply so used to playing Volt that I know his strengths and weaknesses.… [Continue Reading]

I’ve always done well when it comes to just writing stuff down, at the cost of not being very good at project-type assessments. But to make things fair, I’m going to give out some generic studying tips that I use to make sure I remember things. Write Shit Down You’re probably going to be writing things down in your exam, right? So you need to practice writing things down. Write all the things down. Actually, don’t. What you REALLY want… [Continue Reading]

How to Obtain Every Warframe, up to Excalibur Umbra

Oh hey, a random guide! I managed to get every Warframe in the game, you should be able to as well! Please note that you have to build each component first, then use them to build the complete Warframe. Components (Chassis, Neuroptics, Chassis) take 12 hours to build and Warframes take 3 days to build. Let’s get started! Ash Ash’s components are obtained by killing Grineer Manics, with about 30% to drop each piece. Ash’s blueprint is available in the market. The best source of Grineer Manics is Grineer Survival or Defection missions. Atlas Atlas’s blueprint is obtained at the… [Continue Reading]

More Tips for Warframe Sorties

Sorties can be daunting. In doing them, you face enemies in tougher conditions than anywhere else on the star chart. The only places where enemies only start to compare are in the furthest parts of the Void, Kuva Floods, fighting Eidolons and Sentients and maaaaaaybe tier 5 bounties on the Plains of Eidolon. But luckily, I’m here with some more tips to doing sorties. Learn to Love Rolling Rolling is a Warframe’s best friend. Okay, really Sentinels are with their ability to suck loot towards you, but rolling is good too. Rolling gives you damage resistance. But more importantly if… [Continue Reading]

Tips for Kuva Survival

Kuva Survival is the cool new thing, or at least it will be for a while until the new Sanctuary Assault game mode comes out in an upcoming update. It’s a nice blend between the normal sameness of normal Survival with a hint of Extraction thrown in, with the plus side that you don’t need to grab a billion power cores, you just need one to start extracting Kuva. Here are some tips for going into Kuva Survival, one of the highest outside of the Void and Sortie missions. Bring enemies to you Ideally, you want all the enemies to… [Continue Reading]

Becoming Obsessed with Frost Again

So a while back, Frost Prime was released as a Warframe bonus for Twitch Prime. He’d been re-vaulted a while back, and alongside the Soma Prime and Scindo Prime, was always a well-rounded frame, so as a free Warframe, Frost Prime was perfect for the huge amount of new players looking to try something other than Excalibur, Volt and Mag. Of course, because you could get these items with the Twitch Prime trial and a valid credit/debit card, it meant that almost everyone had Frost Prime. Unfortunately, this meant that everyone was using Frost Prime, and there simply wasn’t enough… [Continue Reading]
