Random ideas for Warframe that aren’t enough to make a whole article out of.

I am not an ideas person. I have little ideas but never do much else with them. And 99% of the time, my ideas are not enough to write an entire article about, unless it’s that weird Medi Gun I suggested a while back. So today, after browsing on the not-quite-as-circlejerky-as-the-official-forums place known as r/warframe, I decided to just write my ideas down in a giant lump and leave the rest of you to deal with them. An Upgrade Foundry Component The pet-breeding area in your ship has an upgrade component which stops your mutant cats and dogs from dying,… [Continue Reading]

Super Shiny Warframe Guns

There are two big things in Warframe – getting lots of guns and loot, and making yourself and your guns look fabulous. To aid in both, there are a handful of special weapons that crop up every so often, styled after various aspects of Warframe, one of which was released in the Ambulas Reborn event. The weapon in question is the Supra Vandal. It’s a shiny version of the Supra, with extra ammo. Extra shiny weapons always tend to have a very slight buff, or perhaps a buff to one stat and a nerf to another. The Supra Vandal is… [Continue Reading]

A Very Angry Kitty

Once upon a time, I was randomly gifted a Warframe from a very nice person on Reddit who is MR23/4 and has way too much time on his hands, having been around from the very beginning and owning rarities such as Excalibur Prime. I thanked him kindly then spent a long time leveling this Warframe up, only to discover why everyone liked this character so much. Now that I have leveled up Valkyr and have her nice, shiny Prime version, maybe it’s time to talk about her. Valkyr is normally unlocked by defeating Alad V on Jupiter. Alad V is… [Continue Reading]

Digital Extremes Announces Keystone

Digital Extremes, the weird people who made Warframe and filled it full of weird prepubescent space kids, are making a new game called Keystone. They announced the new game on their new Twitter account, @PlayKeystone. The announcement was on the 23rd of May, and there’s also a related website, PlayKeystone.com. The game is said to be a first-person, team-based shooter. It’s set in some other timeline, not at all related to Warframe, with ‘every move’ transporting you into battle. Keystone will apparently blend first-person action with ‘deck-building strategies’, implying there’s some sort of collectible card element to the game, perhaps… [Continue Reading]

Bloody Hell, that Sonicor…

You remember when I talked about my most used weapon, the Ignis, then teased about another weapon that might end up replacing it? You know, the picture at the end of the article, with my invisible Loki holding that very weapon? Well this article isn’t about that weapon. This article is about the Sonicor. The Sonicor is amazing. Beyond amazing. Okay, what the fuck IS the Sonicor? I’m not really sure, to be honest. It’s an arm-mounted weapon sort of thing. Definitely Corpus in origin, but I have never really seen any Corpus actually USING the Sonicor*. It attaches to… [Continue Reading]

aabicus’ First Time in Warframe

As mentioned in this article, a few weeks ago Medic and I tried an experiment where we played a free game of each other’s choice, in the hopes of expanding our horizons. Medic played Planetside 2 with me and I played Warframe with her. The conclusion? She didn’t like her new game very much and I unfortunately have to say the same. 🙁 I really, really wanted to like it, which is the weirdest thing. I’ve loved games that are decidedly worse. I can’t even point to anything in particular the game did wrong, instead I’ve just got this laundry list of positives. The… [Continue Reading]

So Many Things a Space Ninja Can Hit You With…

Melee weaponry in Warframe is pretty varied. I mean, it’s not Skyrim with a billion mods levels of varied, or as varied as all the randomly generated bladed weaponry that increases melee damage in the Borderlands games, but really, unless you want spears, there’s a little bit of melee weaponry for everyone. That being said, there are spears. They’re just primary weapons – The Javlok and the Ferrox, which fire elemental blasts and can be thrown at enemies to cause explosions. The only downside is you need to go and pick them up afterwards. Anyway, back to melee weaponry. There’s… [Continue Reading]

The Razorback Armada Returns

So a while back, when Nidus came out, invasions between the Grineer and Corpus were given a little more meaning. For every invasion that was won by one side, they would spend 12 hours occupying the location they’d won and they’d build progress to one of two gigantic enemies. The Grineer are working on a Formorian Fleet and the Corpus are working on a Razorback Armada. Well, the Corpus got there first, probably because they offered us better loot to fight for them, and now we’ve got to fight this… thing as a weekend event. But before we do so,… [Continue Reading]

Ambulas Reborn – Grinding Giant Robot Emus

On Thursday 4th of May, Digital Extremes released Ambulash Reborn, a new Operation (i.e. mini event) for Warframe. Frohd Bek, one of those annoying Corpus guys who likes to make as much as possible, is funding and prototyping a new super beefed up MOA robot to replace the old Ambulas model manufactured on Venus. This new Ambulas is tied to an Animo system, which allows the giant mechanical emus with laser guns on their faces to adapt to their enemies. Frohd Bek promises plenty of Grofit – growth and profit – to anyone who backs his bad 80’s-advert-styled proposals. Well,… [Continue Reading]

An Ode to Ordis, for real

Ordis is a ship Cephalon and the AI controlling your home, the Orbiter, in Warframe. Damaged and slightly crazy, Ordis makes sure that everything is okay and refers to you as the Operator. He is the fourth being you’ll ever meet (after your Warframe, the Lotus and Captain Vor), and he’ll always be with you. Forever and ever. Because Ordis cares about you and will happily die for you if he has to. But not many people care about Ordis. His repeating lines, his bad humor, his error-induced puns, his violent outburts and that damn Grineer not-a-number witticism often drive… [Continue Reading]
