New War Predictions and Desires

The New War is the next part of the Warframe storyline, a quest that features the Sentient Natah rather than the Lotus. Although frankly, considering that the only info we have is that Natah went back to her mum and her mum wants her to destroy everything, all coming from a very small trailer released at the end of Tennocon 2018, the New War could consist of just about anything. So, since we know nothing of the New War, here’s some predictions and desires as to what the New War will contain. Let’s start with predictions, because we can certainly… [Continue Reading]

Fortuna and the Orb Vallis So Far

It’s been… a while since Fortuna released. Has the hype died down? Probably not. Is everyone still singing “We all lift together?” Oh yes. Is Fortuna 69 still alive? Totally. Is there anything special going on in Fortuna? Not really. So what HAS been going on in Fortuna and the Orb Vallis? Honestly? Not that much. There have been two major Fortuna updates so far. The initial update and the first Heist update in which we took on the Profit-Taker Orb. MOA companions and Kitguns were introduced, as were K-Drives and two whole new Warframes, as well as some nice… [Continue Reading]

“A Potent Alternative to Gunplay”

“This is a high-damage Warframe perfect for players looking for a potent alternative to gunplay” is part of the flavour text for when you preview Volt, either in the Warframe market or via the codex. But for the longest of times, this sentence was completely wrong. Firstly, when it comes to high damage, Volt actually kinda lacked in that. It wasn’t until Update 22.12, when two new Eidolons were released and we could steal Dargyns from the Grineer, that Volt’s damage was uncapped. Before then, most of Volt’s abilities actually didn’t do much damage at all, and his main damage… [Continue Reading]

Servofishing

Servofishing is just fishing for robots. Because for some reason, the Orb Vallis doesn’t have any normal fish, it has a strange mixture of mechanical fish, a combination of boxy Corpus fish robots and smooth, sleek Orokin fish creatures that have been swimming in the coolant waters for hundreds of years and have suddenly been dragged out of the water so us Tenno can turn them into scrap. I’ve already brought up fishing, both on the Orb Vallis and on the Plains of Eidolon before, but lately my new favourite thing is to sit on my lazy yellow ass and… [Continue Reading]

Eidolons and Spidolons

After the Fortuna 2.0 update, there are now two massive bosses you can fight. They both have the same basic idea, being composed of adapting Sentient parts, requiring a little team work at first and being immune to various sorts of damage. In fact, the Orbs are actually made from bits of sentient stuff, hence why they’ve got the nickname Spidolons. But the two fights are very, very different. And not always in a good way. Let’s have a quick recap of how an Eidolon fight and how a Profit-Taker Orb fight works. Eidolon fights require you to take down… [Continue Reading]

On Being Mastery Rank 26

Mastery Rank 26, Silver Sage, is currently the highest accessible Mastery Rank in the game, with there not being enough weapons, Warframes and other items to level up to be able to reach Mastery Rank 27. Somehow, I managed to reach Mastery Rank 26. I did so in just under 2500 hours, according to Steam, but really it was far less, since those 2500 hours include the time I’ve spent idling in Fortuna 69, trading in my dojo, answering questions in Region Chat and, uh, updating the game. I’m pretty sure I’ve spent at least 20 hours alone updating the… [Continue Reading]

Angry Monk Frame

It took me long enough but I finally managed to obtain and start leveling up Baruuk, the new Warframe released alongside the Fortuna Part 2 update before the holidays. Baruuk is supposedly some sort of peaceful frame that loses his restraint before murdering everything with his fists, but it feels like there’s something missing. As to where Baruuk came from, there’s no lore about him yet. Like Garuda, he was plonked into the new Venus areas and basically left there, just sitting in the inventory of a grumpy bitch hiding out in a backroom in Fortuna. All we have so… [Continue Reading]

Heavy Weapons Frames – Archwing Guns on the Ground

“I am Heavy Weapons Frame. And THIS is my weapon.” When I first conjured up the title of this article, I had very little to say about Archwing guns being used on land. Mostly because I only had the Grattler available for use outside of Archwing missions and the costs to using Archwing weapons were way too fucking high. You see, Archwing guns were always “too heavy to use in an atmosphere” and were “designed for space use only”, but the Profit-Taker bounties gave us an excuse. All we had to do was install a Gravimag on our Archwing guns… [Continue Reading]

Rock Punch Man

There’s really only one way to describe Atlas. He’s a rocky, punchy guy. He’s also one of those frames which are really fun to play but sit in my foundry, rather unused. I can see why though. Atlas isn’t hard to obtain. In fact, he’s pretty easy to get, but you need to have the right gear. Atlas’s blueprint is the reward for the Jordas Precept quest, in which you try to save a Cephalon trapped by the Infested, only to find out the Infested are using him to lure ships in and infest them. The quest isn’t hard, but… [Continue Reading]

Fun Warframe Weapons You Should Try

While the majority of weapons in Warframe are either pointy things you hit people with or guns that do various amounts of pew-pewing, there are definitely some guns that you really should try. The Ogris There’s only one rocket launcher in Warframe currently and it’s the Ogris, a really ugly lump of a weapon that actually originally used to look like the Black Box. While Grineer Bombards use the Ogris to great effect, it’s… not very good. Sure, the Ogris does a lot of damage, but you will most likely blow yourself up. Still, stick Heavy Caliber on it (+damage,… [Continue Reading]
