A Cheap Coward’s Guide to the Steel Path

The Steel Path can seem intimidating. All enemies are over level 100, and they’re all heavily armoured. The Corpus have tons of shields and the Infested are… Well, actually, the Infested are fine, as long as there are no Swarm Mutalist Moas around. Because they give the Infested tons of armour. Either way, the Steel Path is not a place for casual players. However, you don’t need to spend forever formaing your gear and making super OP ultra umbral forma builds.

Health VS Shields – What’s the Better Choice in Warframe?
