Warframe’s Universal Medallion Sucks Ass and is Pointless

I’m a bit late when it comes to hopping on the Universal Medallion bandwagon. But I still feel it’s worth discussing as I consider leveling up the last two factions I’ve missed out on: Ventkids and Conclave. A Universal Medallion is an item you can exchange to a Syndicate to gain 1000 standing with them. However, out of these two factions, Universal Medallions only work on Ventkids. You can’t use Universal Medallions on Conclave. At the same time though, there’s far more problems with Universal Medallions than one would like to admit. Conclave: the elephant in the room The most-cited… [Continue Reading]

How To Fix the Bonewidow Necramech

We currently have two Necramechs in Warframe right now. The first came out with the Heart of Deimos update and the release of the Cambion Drift. The Voidrig Nechramech is a terrifying mechanical monster. It has an electric shield of death and immortality around it. The mech can lob volleys of grenades at you. It can and will bunker down, turning into a turret firing rounds of bullets that do thousands of damage. And, for some reason, the Voidrig Nechramech will occasionally throw canisters of worryingly white, slowing liquid at you. The second Necramech, named Bonewidow, is… uh… well, crap.… [Continue Reading]

On Grinding Ventkids Standing

Being Mastery Rank 30 has left me with a few realizations. There are things I never got around to doing, mostly because they were boring and/or tedious. After all, I haven’t touched Conclave at all, because I have no interest in PvP. But Ventkids on the other hand, they’re a simple Syndicate, right? I may have ignored them since they came out, but they’re… a thing. And, after leveling up the new infested K-Drive, I realised that maybe I could max them out. Well, I could, but it’d be boring. Two options: Races or Tricks. There are only two ways… [Continue Reading]

These New Isolation Vault Bounties Are Miserable

I thought I’d be happy to see more Deimos content, but it turns out I’m wrong. Yes, we got new bounties. However, these bounties are insanely tedious, not just to do, but to access as well! Like, who thought this was a good idea? Ugh, this is going to be a slog. Just like doing the actual bounties. To access a new bounty, you need to do its Isolation Vault. These new bounties are located in the underground Isolation Vaults. But to get to them, you need to do the related Isolation Vault bounty. So you’ve got to rush around… [Continue Reading]

Ranking the Cernos Bow Family

When it comes to weapons with the most unique variants, you’d think it’d be something simple, like the Skana or the starting Braton. After all, these are weapons seen from the very start of the game. They’re well-known and popular. For example, the Furis is one of the first guns you can make, and it has four variants. The normal Furis is given as a reward, while the MK1 Furis is in the market. But there’s also the Akfuris dual variant. AND we have the Dex Furis, the anniversary version. But for some reason, the Cernos, a random bow not… [Continue Reading]

I Can’t Work Out What Necramechs Are Supposed To Be Used For

Necramechs are really, really cool. They’re basically massive armed robot guards. Golden-plated monstrosities that mow down enemies with big dakka guns. These giant Orokin robots are the complete opposite to smooth, sleek Warframes. Despite their strange appearance, you can’t deny that a Necramech is a terrifying sight. But what are Necramechs actually useful for? Lore-wise, they’re basically no longer used. While Father will go on about how great Necramechs are, it’s clear that Warframes replaced them. After all, you can’t exactly fit a Necramech through a normal doorway. It also seems like they were awkward to make. The only reason… [Continue Reading]

Deimos Arcana, AKA I don’t have enough Pyrol

I don’t get the rarity some items have in Warframe sometimes. It’s just all over the place. Some items, despite being kinda meh, are locked away behind massive grinds. Others are, well, right there to grab. This has come up again in the Deimos Arcana update. Some of the new items are stupidly rare, some of them aren’t. It’s a very weird mess. The new Necramech is just… there. The biggest example of this whole strange rarity thing is the new Necramech. The Bonewidow and her new gun are just blueprints that Loid sells. You just go up to him… [Continue Reading]

The Problem With Exalted Weapons

An Exalted Weapon in Warframe is an ability where you summon a magical weapon and wreck havoc with it. There are different types of Exalted Weapon and, generally, they drain energy as you use them, in exchange for sheer power. But while exalted weapons are both cool and powerful, they are not always consistent. And, sometimes, there are better options out there. Exalted Weapons are Harder to Mod The first big issue with exalted weapons is that they are finicky to mod. They’re not consistent and can’t use all mods. Originally, you actually couldn’t mod exalted weapons. Instead, they borrowed… [Continue Reading]

The Problem With The Steel Essence Farm

With the upcoming Deimos Arcana update, there’s going to be a lot of changes to a lot of things. Part of the changes include one to Steel Path. Particularly how you get Steel Essence. The Steel Path overall is a bit tedious. It’s the normal star chart but everything is way, way tankier. There’s only two reasons to do it: Mastery and Steel Essence, which can be traded in to Teshin for various rewards. But unless you go looking, Steel Essence is hard to come across. Currently, on the Heart of Deimos update, it has a chance to drop Eximus… [Continue Reading]

My New Favourite Warframe Loadout

In the hours between failing the MR30 test and completing the MR30 test the next day, I went through a lot of resources. While I flailed around, I needed to try a lot of things. I went through various weapons and builds, not really sure what I was doing wrong. In the end, the problem wasn’t with my weapons, but my own performance. Anyway, when that was over, I decided to just dick around doing random missions. During which I used a slightly different version of what I used to do that MR30 test. Maybe it was the euphoria from… [Continue Reading]
