Sanctuary Onslaught – An Excuse to Kill Stuff

The Sanctuary Onslaught mission is now available to play. Cephalon Simaris, the orange AI who love getting all in your face, has invited you to his datascape in order to do some experiments for him. He offers you two difficulties, a normal version and an ‘elite’ version, which is just a fancy way of saying hard mode, with much higher level enemies. Simaris wants to do tests in efficiency and lethality, and up until now, he has been recreating battles inside his Sanctuary in order to study how quickly and efficiently things die. But after so many tests, he wants… [Continue Reading]

Terror in the Locker Room

The Crewman could hear lockers opening. He had finished his shift and was going to head down to the canteen for lunch. He needed to drop off his weapon and change out of his suit. Someone else was in there though, clanging and banging around. Rather than just barge in, the Crewman decided to sneak in and see what was going on. As he peered around the corner, the Crewman felt a tingle in the air. Like miniature electric shocks. There was a Warframe in the locker room. A brightly coloured one. A weird cape around its backside, rings around… [Continue Reading]

Warframe without Warframes

Warframes are ugly. Corpus and Grineer are ugly. Most of the human beings in Warframe are ugly as fuck. Even the cats and dogs can be absolutely hideous if you get unlucky. When you think about it, most living things in Warframe are really horrible, the result of hundreds, if not thousands of years of everything going to hell in a hand basket. You have endless wars between the Grineer and Corpus, you have the Infested biting at everyone’s heels and the few normal outposts filled with normal human beings generally have something terrorizing them every night. No wonder they’re… [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]

Zaws – Build Your Own Weapons in Warframe

The Plains of Eidolon brought with them a lot of content, a lot of which I never really got around to covering. One of the more prominent features was the ability to build your own weapons, using a combination of set parts. It’s a strange system, something that allows you to have a lot of creativity, but at the same time isn’t actually that creative. Actually I take that back. Zaws can be kinda creative. But there’s work to be had. First off, a Zaw comes in three parts. A pointy bit you hit things with (the strike), the blunt… [Continue Reading]

A Quick Guide to 1 Hour Survival Fissures

Sometimes you need to open relics and fast. You’ve got a mountain of relics and Baro Ki’Teer’s coming tomorrow and you have no idea what to do. Alright, sure, you could do Capture and Exterminate missions, but you lose a lot of time between loading screens. Defense and Excavation missions offer endless rewards, but enemies are slow and often hide. Nope, if you want to open a relic every 5 minutes, you’ll want to do a marathon Survival Fissure. With the right set up, you can easily go for an hour or longer. And this is a quick guide on… [Continue Reading]

Plague Star Has Returned!

From April 5th to April 17th, Plague Star is back, bringing Infested and a massive, hideous lump of cancerous matter to the middle of the Plains of Eidolon. The event is a platform-wide operation, affecting the Plains no matter what if you’re on PC, and is probably coming back to Console versions in 2-3 weeks. The way Plague Star works is pretty much the same as last time. You grab the Infested Catalyst blueprint from your Clan Dojo, you build some and equip them in your gear slot, you accept the bounty from Konzu in Cetus, you head out to… [Continue Reading]

Things You Should Never Buy When it Comes to Warframe

Warframe’s a free to play game. You can get to Mastery Rank 25 and unlock every game-changing item in the game for free, aside from Founders’ items. You can trade for the in-game premium currency Platinum, which is extremely rare for a free to play title. There are also a lot of items only available for free currencies in the game. It’s really pretty amazing. BUT there are still a handful of expensive pitfalls that you really should avoid. Mod Packs These things are fucking awful. You’re guaranteed one ‘rare mod’ in each pack, but rare just means gold, and… [Continue Reading]

An Old Medic Failing with the Best Healer Ever

For someone who calls himself Medic, mained Medic in Team Fortress 2 and had a single class make up about 80% of my gameplay, it seems really weird that I wouldn’t leap into Warframe and grab the healing character at the first opportunity. Back then, Trinity wasn’t even that hard to get, her parts dropping from a tag-team fight between two bosses I’d already soundly defeated. Considering how powerful Trinity is, was and always will be, it seems insane that Medic’s playing anyone but. That’s not to say I never play Trinity. She has her place. She’s a good frame.… [Continue Reading]
