Fifty Platinum – What Should You Do With It?

When you start Warframe, you’re given 50 Platinum. Platinum is the premium currency of Warframe which, unlike many other premium currencies, can be traded with other players. Most of the time. The 50 Platinum you start off with though can only be spent in the Warframe Market and can’t be traded with other players in any way. The question is, how do you spend that Platinum? It’s very tempting to instantly spend that 50 Platinum on one of the cheap Syandanas for your Warframe. The Uru Syandana for example is very nice, with a metallic sheen to it and a… [Continue Reading]

A Complete Lack of Mesa Prime

You know what? I was going to do one of my weird ability breakdowns and warframe review articles because there’s quite a few frames that I’ve missed, the most obvious one being Mesa. Mesa is a hugely popular gunslinger-based Warframe who very recently got a Prime upgrade. Mesa Prime looks amazing and comes with a bunch of very nice weapons, the Akjagara Prime and the Redeemer Prime, all coated in that lovely Orokin gold. I had planned to write a nice little article about how cool both Mesa and Mesa Prime were, then show off some nice fashionframe for Mesa… [Continue Reading]

Easy Things To Sell For Platinum

The way Warframe is set up, you can easily play Warframe and never spend a penny on it. But in order to do so, you do need to wander into the world of trading. While I’ve mentioned a few things that can make you a quick buck before, I think it’s time to have an updated list of things guaranteed to get you some Platinum. Whether you wade through the Trade Chat in-game or sit in your dojo waiting for people to message you via warframe.market is up to you, but these things will pretty much always help build up… [Continue Reading]

Mann Up Mode – A Very Fun Scam

Mann Up mode for Mann VS Machine is a scam. There, I said it. It’s a scam. A pretty expensive one, although not as expensive a scam as keys are. Particularly for early crates with just weapons and hats in, those crates were the scammiest of scams unless you got an unusual hat. But anyway, yes, Mann Up is not good, if you want to win some fun prizes. The first problem is simple. You have to complete a tour of anywhere between 3 and 6 missions to be able to have a chance at winning a good prize, like… [Continue Reading]

On Buying Warframes with Platinum

The other day, I checked my Warframe profile and was amazed to see that Ivara has sneaked her way into being my third most played Warframe, after Volt and Volt Prime. Wasn’t really that much of a surprise because Ivara is insanely useful in Spy missions, but she also comes in very handy for a large number of smaller tasks, such as quick alert missions, looking for and scanning enemies with her larger Enemy Sense, completing Riven mods and general roaming the plains. In fact, after Volt, Ivara is a really good Warframe on the Plains of Eidolon, as she… [Continue Reading]

Retvik’s Ridiculous Guide to Rolling and Selling Rivens

Riven mods. All the potential in the world to make your favourite weapons amazing, locked away behind a wall of randomness and horrible Kuva. They’re also locked away behind a limited amount of space, with a base amount of 15 Riven Mod slots, with more riven slots costing you 60 platinum for a measly 3 slots. They’re expensive and annoying and disappointing and if you want to make use of them, not end up with an inventory of crap or make some platinum, you need to learn how and when to get rid of them. Let’s make things clear right… [Continue Reading]

Trading in Warframe

If you want to get anywhere in Warframe, you need to learn how to trade. The only thing required to progress in Warframe that requires the premium currency of Platinum is the slot. Weapon slots and Warframe slots mainly. The other slots, for Archwings, Archwing Weapons, Sentinels, Pets and Riven Mods, they’re not compulsory but needed if you want to get everything. Things like Orokin Reactors and Catalysts, or Exilus Adapters, they can be obtained during events, given as rewards during sorties or are featured in Alert missions. It’s just Weapon slots (at 12 platinum for 2 slots) and Warframe… [Continue Reading]

Hats aren’t scary any more…

The other day, TMNWG mentioned an idea for an article, about how hats and strange weapons can intimidate people. Of course, a strange weapon like a Hale’s Own Sniper Rifle is pretty impressive and slightly intimidating if the person using it is genuinely skilled (rather than some idiot farming it in achievement_idle_noglass) but hats… I don’t know, I really don’t think they’re as intimidating as they should be. Hats used to be advertised as the be all and end all of TF2. You were a loser, poor and Irish, if you didn’t have something on your bonce. Hats have always… [Continue Reading]

I guess it’s campaigns forever now…

The Smissmas update is not exactly that Smissmas-y. Yes, Miss Pauling is supposedly on holiday. Yes we’ve got the noise makers and the stockings. Yes there’s a festive crate wandering around. But there’s no spirit or anything going around. Once everyone’s dumped their Giftapults and Secret Saxtons, that’s kinda it. Previous years weren’t much better, but they did bring new weapons for people to use. Just a few generally, but enough. This year we’ve received not new weapons, but weapon reworks and not always in a good way. It’s not really a rework if a weapon is made pretty much… [Continue Reading]

Gift Tips

It’s that time of year where a bunch of people go out and buy each other gifts to celebrate a gigantic mishmash of religious traditions all rolled up into one and loosely related to the birth of some kid 2000 years ago. Of course, as people get older and technology gets better, the circle of people we end up getting gifts for has gotten larger and larger. Looking at you, all you online friends! So, here’s a bunch of ideas to make people happy. Why am I doing this early? Well, you’re going to want to get this stuff ready… [Continue Reading]
