Dakka and Twin Dakka

There’s no such thing as too much Dakka. You can never fire too many bullets. Overkill doesn’t exist. Everything must die in a hail of bullets and explosions. And what better weapon to do that with than the Grakata. Yes, the Grakata. The weird, ugly, Ork-like, Grineer-based automatic rifle, spraying bullets at your enemies. Sure there’s only a clip size of about 60, but that’s better than a lot of guns, and a speedy reload means you’ll be shooting again in no time. The heavy Bzzting and Dakkaing are enough to keep most enemies at bay, even if you haven’t… [Continue Reading]

What the Fuck is Warframe’s Lore Anyway? Warframe Lore 2: Lore Harder

Warframe’s lore is fucked up. It’s insane. No one knows what’s going on, everything is dead or dying or desperate. Everything sucks. And most of this lore comes from little tidbits and past events you may or may not have missed. But what the fuck IS Warframe’s lore anyway? This article should cover most of it. Consider it an updated version of this angry rant. Yeah there’s a story in Warframe. It’s a thing. It’s a weird, confusing, messed up thing. Pretty dark as well. You don’t actually see what’s going on 99% of the time, you’re just sitting on… [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]

WTFrame! Tennocon 2018

What the fuck. What the fuck Warframe, what was that? That was all insane! I decided to stay up until 2am watching the Tennocon Live Stream, which has always proven to be pretty neat. In 2017, Digital Extremes announced the Plains of Eidolon and the Sacrifice. They decided to completely one up that in 2018 with the reveal of not one, not two but three insane things. I’m going to stick the full video here just so you can all see it, because frankly my descriptions probably aren’t doing it justice. So firstly there’s the new expansion for Venus. Named… [Continue Reading]

Probably the Only Priest I Could Trust – Harrow

Harrow is basically the Priest Warframe, the Masochist, sacrificing shields and energy, my two favourite things, to buff himself and his team. He is the exact sort of frame I never thought I’d like, as I’ve always been a very selfish Warframe player (Ignis Wraith blueprints aside) and why would I want to give up the things I use to stop myself from dying? Yet somehow, here I am, enjoying Harrow. You get Harrow’s blueprint from his quest, Chains of Harrow, but the rest of him is locked away behind Defection missions and a single Spy mission on the Kuva… [Continue Reading]

That Slow Feeling of Being Burnt Out

It was bound to happen eventually. I’ve been playing Warframe for a long time, coming up to about two years now. And now, after hitting Mastery Rank 23, I’m starting to get burnt out. I’m running out of things to do, and a string of bad luck when it comes to acquiring the new stuff is making me kinda tired. Okay, yes, I got an Arcane Energize yesterday, but I’ve gone though twenty Neo B4 relics trying to get a Kronen Prime handle and eventually it all starts wearing you down. Let’s be fair though. Warframe has done an amazing… [Continue Reading]

My Growing Obsession with Khora

It’s weird how a new favourite suddenly emerges out of nowhere, leaping up behind you and giving you the shock of your life as you realise you’ve been using this new favourite more and more. Okay, I’m still utterly obsessed with Volt, but Khora? Bloody hell, I never thought I’d be using her so much. Khora just kinda popped out of nowhere. I leveled Khora up and stuck her in the arsenal while I resumed with playing Volt and trying to get Kronen and Tiberon Prime, but when I failed that (to the point that I STILL don’t have Kronen… [Continue Reading]

Rambling About the Corpus

The Corpus aren’t treated fairly in Warframe. Most of the time they’re simply set to one side. Most of the time, we have to deal with pissed off Grineer. The Natah quest featured Grineer. The War Within featured Grineer. The Silver Grove, Chains of Harrow, the Plains of Eidolon, the Sands of Inaros and even the shitty quest that is the Limbo Theorem are all Grineer places. What is Corpus-orientated? The Glast Gambit. And that quest was worse than the Limbo Theorem. The best Corpus thing we got lately was the Corpra Tennogen skin for Excalibur, the Supra Vandal, the… [Continue Reading]

Ordis Deserves Better

I’ve been meaning to write another article about our good friend Ordis for a while, and the Sacrifice is the perfect opportunity to do so. All these years, Ordis has been by our side, helping us out, looking after our quarters, sorting out our Warframes and building our weapons for us. Ever since we woke up, weak and confused, Ordis has been there. Heck, he was the third person to speak to us, after Captain Vor threatening us and Lotus waking us up. Ordis has always been there. Ordis cares about us. But frankly, we treat him badly. Okay, maybe… [Continue Reading]

Payment in Detonite Injectors and Fieldrons

I’ve been doing a lot of Invasions lately. Or rather, looking at invasions and wondering whether I can be bothered to do them or not. And then eventually doing them anyway because I need loot. Well, I say loot, I mean components. Well, I say components, I mean a handful of resources to build clan tech weapons. Alright, so Invasions are simple. There’s two types: you either have Corpus attacking Grineer nodes or vice versa, or you have Grineer or Corpus fighting off Infested, often called an Infested Outbreak. If it’s an Infested Outbreak and the mission node under attack… [Continue Reading]
