I Think the Ignis Wraith is Fine

The Ignis Wraith came out as one of the most used weapons in 2020. Frankly, I’m not surprised. Despite being a top tier weapon, it’s damage isn’t amazing. It’s just a cool flamethrower that’s fun to use. However, just because it’s popular, doesn’t mean it’s bad. Still, plenty of people will probably complain about a flamethrower being so popular. Well, of course it is. We’re playing a hoard shooter. There’s a constant stream of enemies running at us. While, originally, Warframe was a lot stealthier than it is now, there’s always been lots of enemies. A big part of the… [Continue Reading]

5 Other Cool Warframe Melee Weapons You Should Try

There are tons of cool weapons in Warframe, but none are as varied as melee weapons. From massive swords to petite daggers, there’s something for everyone. But even among melee weapons, there are plenty of even cooler ones. Melee gimmicks that help a weapon stand out from the crowd. Here are 5 other cool melee weapons you should try in Warframe. Vitrica The Vitrica is a badass glass sword, once wielded by an ancient Orokin bastard. After defeating said Orokin bastard in the Weave, the Cephalon version of the internet, you obtain the blueprint for this cool weapon. While it… [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]

Weird Little Warframe Facts About Weapons

Years and years ago, aabicus wrote an article about little-known mechanics in Team Fortress 2. He went into a detailed list of various things that really aren’t obvious at all. Some of these were minor differences like how a Sniper’s rifle’s laser will detect invisible spies. However, some mechanics were rather large, like how crouching breaks hitboxes. The article is quite an interesting read, and aabicus suggested I write one about Warframe, with my insane knowledge. Small problem with that: There are SO MANY little-known mechanics that it’s impossible to list even some of them in a single item. That… [Continue Reading]

I Miss My Ignis

In my quest to finish leveling every weapon in the game, I’ve been neglecting my Ignis. It’s been sitting there, unused, for ages. While the Ignis still sits at the top of my most-used primary weapons, I actually haven’t touched it in a long, long time. In fact, even after I finished leveling everything up, my Ignis remains somewhat untouched. Why though? Why did I abandon my Ignis? Well, simply put, I’ve been using other weapons lately. Out of the last 10 weapons I needed to level up for mastery, all of them except one were primary weapons. The Kuva… [Continue Reading]

Self Damage Is No More

Self Damage no longer exists in Warframe, at least when it comes to explosive weapons. No longer can you blow yourself up while using an explosive weapon. You don’t have to play Inaros or Wukong to use the Kuva Bramma. Squishy frames no longer instantly die from misfiring alternate-fire modes like the Corinth. And I no longer have to scoop my Ogris-using friend off the floor every other mission! Actually, I take that back, self-damage still exists in some exceptions. For example, the Nightwatch Napalm mod for the Ogris. But in 99% of cases? Self damage is gone. Self damage… [Continue Reading]

Boomkong – The Joy of Wukong and Exploding Bows

I’ve never been a fan of exploding weapons in Warframe. Explosive weaponry is simply too scary for the average Tenno. Because of how much damage explosive weapons do, we blow ourselves up. A lot. To the point that we leave most explosive weapons to one side. In fact, the only really popular explosive weapons were originally weapons like the Tonkor… which had next to no self-damage. Which was removed. The Exceptions to the Rule The Kuva Bramma on the other hand is quite a popular weapon. While it IS a Kuva weapon and requires killing a Lich to obtain, it’s… [Continue Reading]

The Zenistar Of course the Zenistar is on this list. For a long time, the Zenistar was the… [Continue Reading]

Looking at Warframe’s Milestone Weapons

With Warframe’s milestone login system, you get a little reward every time you sign in, with bigger rewards every 50 and 100 days. On your 100th, 300th, 500th and 700th logins, you get a choice of one of four weapons: the Azima, the Zenistar, the Zenith or the Sigma and Octanis. Considering you get one of these weapons every 200 days, it can be pretty hard deciding which one to choose. You can get your first special weapon on your 100th login, with a choice between the Azima, the Zenistar or the Zenith. The Sigma and Octanis becomes available from… [Continue Reading]

5 Shotguns You Should Try in Warframe

Shotguns are always a fun weapon type. Limited mag sizes, slow reload speeds but a fuckton of damage, all neatly wrapped inside a cool-looking gun. Sure, reload times will be a problem, but that doesn’t matter when you can spray enemies with death in pellet form. Or some other form, because Warframe shotguns are weird, crazy things. Anyway, here are five shotguns that you should really try and aren’t the Tigris Prime. Because the Tigris Prime is hard to get and insanely over-hyped these days. The Corinth Th Corinth is a Tenno-made shotgun that was hyped for an insanely long… [Continue Reading]
