Warframe Useful Chat Commands & Lingo

Warframe Chat Commands are really important if you want to trade and communicate with the fellow Tennos. We have listed a few that you might need to put into use time-by-time when you play the game.

How To Link Items in Chat

If you are trying to find information or trying to sell an item, linking is really important. You might need to use this time by time, the way to do it is just typing the mod/weapon/frame/part name in square brackets.

Example: WTS [Soma Prime]

This will turn Soma Prime into a link. Same can be done for rivens. If you don’t remember the name of the riven mod that you want to link just type [Riven Mod] and the riven menu will pop up, just select the mod that you want to link.

Invite People

One way is to invite people by right clicking on their name, but what if you want to invite someone just by knowing their username?

Just type /inv username to invite the player.

Whisper Someone

Learnt this command while trading using the Warframe Market website. Generally we right click on users name and select “Talk” to open up a new chat with a fellow tenno. Type /w playername to whisper a Tenno. This command can also be used for finding out whether a player is online or not.

Command: /w username

Unstuck Command

Numerous times you will fall off from a cliff, or you might end up in a place where you can’t move off. This command comes to your rescue at that time. Just type /unstuck and your problem will be fixed.

Warframe Lingo

These are the terms that you will see in the trade chat time by time.

LF

Looking for. Is used when you are looking for a player of the desired criteria or just a player.

WTS

Looking to sell something? – Just type WTS [Item Name].

Platinum Farming Guide: How I Made 20K Platinum

How To Make Easy Platinum in Warframe – Platinum is the premium in-game currency that is used in Warframe, almost everyone knows about that. The thing that most Tennos don’t know about is, how to make platinum easily in Warframe. Today I am going to share everything I know about making platinum in this game. Some people might say that earning platinum is really hard and takes a lot of time, trust me, it’s not.

Earn Platinum in Warframe

How Much Have I earned myself?

I really use the supply and demand thing in this game, its basic economy. I have earned over 20,000 platinum just with trades. In this article, I am going to cover all the ways that you can use to Earn Platinum in Warframe.

Keep in mind, I am not going to cover things such as selling simple corrupted mods, syndicate weapons. This is basic knowledge and almost everyone knows about it.

Let’s begin

Buy/Sell Riven Mods

This is the number one way that I use for making loads of platinum in the game. This method takes a lot of time but its always worth the reward. Buy unrolled riven mods for the basic price of 100/50 platinum and reroll them for good stats.

My example: Sold Ignis CC+CD Riven for over 8000 Platinum. This happened when Ignis Wraith had made its arrival in the game. I bought this mod for just 50 platinum and rerolled it with Kuva almost 5 times for the amazing outcome.

Another thing you can do is buy veiled riven mods and keep them for a while. Whenever a new prime access drops or a new weapon is added, go and unveil the riven. There are chances that you might end up getting the riven for the new weapon. This is RNG based but has a huge reward.

My example: Bought 3 veiled mods when Sybaris Prime dropped. Unveiled all 3 and got a Sybaris Mod, instantly sold it for 500 platinum.

There is a really good demand for unrolled rivens for good/meta weapons.

Baro Ki’Teer Weapons/Mods

Baro is known for bringing different mods and weapons time by time, these weapons and mods have huge demand. These can be bought with ducats (currency used for exchange with Baro).

My Example: Bought 10x Quanta Vandal from Warframe Market for 50P when it came for the first time. Sold for 150 Platinum each after 4-5 weeks.

Vaulted Primes and Relics

Vaulted Primes and Relics are sold like hotcakes in the Warframe Market due to the limited availability. The simple logic is that you can’t farm them anymore from the game, so people who want to obtain it always have to buy it.

My Example: Axi E1 Relics that dropped the Ember Prime blueprint were being sold for over 120 Platinum. Can you believe it people were buying a relic for over 100 platinum. How crazy is that?

Another Example: I bought multiple sets of Ember Prime and Frost Prime when the were unvaulted. Kept them for a while and sold each of the set for a huge profit.

Bonus Tip

Warframe.Market – Always make listings in Warframe.Market, it is an amazing market place for buying and selling warframe parts and mods. The thing you should do is, search for the prime parts you are trying to sell and check the lowest price. Now list your part for 2-3 platinum less than the top listing. This works all the time for me.

Note: This is not the exploiting of the player base at all. Everyone buys with their own will, no one forces anyone. Everyone should realize that it is a free market.

As I said earlier these are the methods that are going to make you a lot of platinum. Other things such as selling mods and a single prime part are something that takes a lot of time and doesn’t feel rewarding at all.

Warframe Damage Types: Enemy Weakness, Damage Combinations

Warframe is a complicated game, there are a lot of things to understand which might overwhelm a new player. There are damage types, different factions that have a different vulnerability, different elements and a lot of other stuff.

Before breaking down everything, let’s read a funny story

My Funny story – When my friend was new, I took him to the Kela De Thaym boss fight, back when it was introduced. We were doing pretty well, the boss had a fraction of health left, I and one other squadmate were already dead. So the new player was only one left, I asked him why it is taking him so long to kill her when she has only a fraction of health left, he said he isn’t able to deal damage and I asked the numbers, he told me an absurdly small vanilla number (without any elementals).

So I asked him what build he was running?

He said he didn’t have any elemental mods installed on his Soma Prime. So that is how much of a difference a right build can make. We failed that sortie mission, but he learned his lesson.

Enough about the story, let’s jump right into understanding Warframe and it’s damage types.

Warframe Damage Types

Damage dealt by players will show up on the HUD, this number is a combination of both primary damage and elemental damage. The damage indicators are as follows:

  • Default damage is white.
  • Critical hits and stealth attacks show up as yellow.
  • Orange crits are a stronger variant of the yellow crits.
  • Red crits are a stronger variant of the orange crits.
  • Damage against shields is blue, whereas damage against over shields shows up as purple.
  • Damage against invulnerable enemies shows up as grey

Warframe has two damages: Primary and Elemental. I am going to cover both of these in detail below.

Primary Damage

Most weapons in the game have a combination of three damage types – Impact (hammer), Puncture (a pin puncturing a wheel), and Slash (a blade). The overall damage dealt by a weapon is a sum of all these damage types. The base damage can be increased with the usage of Serration mod (+165% damage).

One thing to keep in mind is that you cannot add physical damage to a weapon that deals no physical damage. Some weapons such as Glaxion or Phage can deal no physical damage.

Primary Damage Types and Weaknesses

  • Impact: Strong against shield enemies. Weak against flesh. Proc deals short stagger effect.
  • Slash: Is strong against flesh-based enemies. Causes a bleeding effect dealing damage over time. Weak against shields. Great against infested, once procced ignores shields and armor and deals true damage. Considered the best in the game.
  • Puncture: Strong against flesh. Weak against armor. Puncture proc reduces incoming damage by 30%, not really useful when there is damage type such as Slash in the game.

Best Damage type: Slash. I have explained above why it is the best.

Elemental Damage

A weapon that deals physical damage can deal elemental damage with the usage of Elemental damage mod. Creating these elements requires the mixing of two different elements. The Elemental damage can be buffed further with the usage of mods or dual stat mods.

Elemental Damage Types

A weapon can have innate combined elemental damage type such as Blast for Lenz. But if the weapon does only physical damage, you can add elemental damage using an elemental mod. These elemental mods can be combined to deal damage such as Blast, Corrosive, Gas, Magnetic, Radiation or Viral.

Further explained:

The order in which you put your mods in also matters. The hierarchy is from left to right (top to bottom). You can put multiple combined elemental damages types in a single weapon.

For example: If you put Hellfire and Cryorounds on Soma Prime, it will deal Blast damage.

Hellfire + Cryo Rounds = Blast Damage

Hellfire + Cryo Rounds = Blast Damage

Now adding Infected Clip to the combo, the weapon now deals Blast + Toxin damage as shown in the image below:

Hellfire + Cryo Rounds + Infected Clip = Blast + Toxin Damage

Now, swapping Hellfire with Infected Clip gives us Viral damage as shown in the picture below:

Cryo Rounds + Infected Clip = Viral Damage

More about elemental combinations and what combination is best for what faction in the article below. The above explanation was just to give you an example of how modding works.

Elemental Damage Combinations

Damage Types Result of Combo Status Effect
Electricity + Toxin Corrosive Corrosion: Reduces current armor by 25%.
Blast Heat + Cold Knockdown: Creates a 5 meter knockdown area. Knocks enemy whens procced.
Gas Heat + Toxin Toxin Cloud: Creates a 3m radius cloud dealing toxin damage overtime (8 seconds)
Magnetic Cold + Electricity Disrupt: Reduces enemy Shields by 75% for 4 seconds.
Viral Cold + Toxin Viral: Reduces health to 50% for 6 seconds.
Radiation Heat + Electricity Confusion: Confuses enemies. Enemies start attacking each other.

Best Elemental Damage type: There’s no best element type, it can vary on what faction you are fighting with. I mostly run a Corrosive build at all times since it’s an all-rounder.

Weapons that already have innate combined elements such as Penta (Blast), Nukor (Radiation) and Detron (Radiation) will always deal their own damage type. This cannot be changed by tweaking around with mods, though you can add another combined elemental damage type. For example, I can add Blast damage on top of the radiation damage to my Nukor as shown in the picture below.

Nukor with Radiation + Blast Damage

Understanding Enemy Weakness

Now all the knowledge we’ve gained from the above information can be combined to form the right build for each faction. Let’s find out what is the best damage type for each faction.

  • Grineer – Grineer enemies generally have huge armor. A corrosive build is what you should be running for all grineer tileset missions.
  • Corpus – Corpus have shields, magnetic damage takes away 75% of their shield. Running a magnetic build along with viral damage would be great for these missions.
  • Infested – Infested enemies can get way tanky as the mission’s progress. Running a weapon with Slash + Corrosive damage will be great for Infested missions.
  • Corrupted Enemies – These enemies are mostly found in Void and relic opening missions. It’s best to run a corrosive build for this.

The below image from Aahz will help you understand it better, this was made way back in 2013 but it’s still relevant:

Click on the image to zoom it

As you can see in the picture above, Slash damage is good for enemies with high flesh health, corrosive is good for enemies with high armor and so on.

Unique Damage Types

These are a few unique damage types in the game that are not offered by any typical weapon.

  • True damage: True damage is a damage type that completely ignores armor and health. True damage can be only applied through slash procs, finishers and a few warframe abilities such as Ash’s Blade Storm.
  • Void: Void damage can only be dealt by Warframe’s Operator. You can gain access to the operator once you have completed the War Within Quest.
  • Tau: Tau is a sentient energy attack damage.

Warframe Relic Farming – Best Place to Farm Neo, Lith, Meso, Axi

Warframe Relic Farming – Relic farming is a very important thing in the game, it might be termed as everything too since this game is all about farming and that grind. There are four kinds of relics in this game which you might already know about, but I am going to write about them anyway. The four relics are Lith, Meso, Neo, and Axi.

Before the changes to the void, void keys were used for farming prime parts, but now the same parts are farming using relics. Some people might argue that void keys were better, but I will say that the relic system is way better and less RNG dependent. The only downside being you able to only farm one part per relic is the only thing I don’t like.

 

Warframe Relic Farming

Updated: I have added a few new pointers and places along with drop rates in the article. Also, added a section for solo players and squad players.

I have made some changes to the article using the new input from the fellow tenno. Thanks to their comments.


How To Farm Lith Relics

Best Place to Farm Lith Relics – The best and efficient mission is Hepit, Capture on Void. It takes two minutes to run through this mission. Better if you run around using a frame such as Volt or Gauss. Great for solo players and guarantees a relic drop upon completion.

For Squads: Orokin Derelict Defense is another great place to head to if you are looking to hoard a nice amount of Lith Relics. Take a good squad or call your fellow tennos and get into the grind, the rotation is also pretty good, you will get 400 Endo once in a while.

If you are looking to solo this mission, then it might take around 15-20 minutes for you to complete 15 waves. All you need to do is, take a Speed Nova, now spam that 4 and chop up your enemies with Atterax. Also if you have Zenistar, you can throw it around the Cryopod and the enemies will auto explode without you worrying much. This is a little time consuming and I wouldn’t personally recommend it doing without a squad.

Drop Chances of Lith: 75% for a Lith relic, 12.5% each for every relic on rotation A.

Hepit Capture on Void almost guarantees a Lith Relic, it all depends on how fast you can complete the mission. Take a volt and this mission will be done in no time.


How To Farm Meso Relics

Best Place to Farm Meso Relics – IO, Jupiter is the hands down the best place for farming Meso relics. This is amazing for squads that can run through waves easily without any problems.

Farming Meso Relics is pretty easy with the small and nice tileset of IO, get a Banshee with Arcane Energize installed and kill all the enemies coming towards you within a few seconds. Rinse and repeat for a while and extract. The first two rotations will guarantee at least one meso relic drop.

The only problem you might face is nullifiers, bring a squadmate or you might have to pause your Resonating Quake spam from time to time which will make the farming process a little longer.

Drop Chances of Meso Relics: 85.74% for a Meso relic, 14.29% each for every relic on rotation A.

Best Meso Relic Farm for Solo Players – Void, Ukko Capture Mission is a great option for solo players. Since this is a capture mission it will only take you 3-4 mins to complete it. The drop table consists of 50% Meso and 50% Neo, which is not that big of a problem.


How To Farm Neo Relics

Tip from a reader:

If you need both Neo and Axi relics, you should be running Xini as you’re likely to get Neos while you get your Axis.

If you purely need Neos, Apollo on Lua has Disruption. If you only do 1 conduit per round you get the A rotation 3 times at the start, which has a 100% chance to drop Neo relics. It’s also about as fast as Oestrus.

I am verifying this information and will be replacing the one added below if this works better. Till then you can figure out which one works best for you.

Best Place to Farm Neo Relics – Oestrus, Eris.

Oestrus, Eris is an Infested Salvage mission. This mission was added some time back and is similar to defense missions. In this mission, players have to retrieve a shipping manifest from the infested ship. Oestrus, Eris is the only node on the starchart with this mission type. You can start this mission normally and you’ll find a team automatically, there’s no need to run squads for it. Just take a good frame so that you don’t die as the enemies scale.

Drop Chances of Neo Relics: 70% chance for a Neo Relic drop, 10% each for a relic every rotation A. You might get Magazine Warp, Trick Mag, Vitality as well sometimes.

Best Meso Relic Farm for Solo Players – As mentioned earlier Void, Ukko Capture mission has 50-50 chances of dropping both Meso and Neo relics upon completion. This is a nice option for solo players.


How To Farm Axi Relics

Best place to farm Axi Relics – Xini, Eris (Infested Interception) or Lua-Disruption Node. Both of these are great options.

The newly added infested interception is easy to do and has made Axi relic farming really easy. Earlier you had to fight high-level mobs and grind really hard to get those Axi Relics. The best part about this mission is that you can complete it solo. Earlier I used to complete a few rotations using Ember’s World on Fire, but that thing is ruined after the recent nerf to her main power.

Drop Chances of Axi Relics: 100% for an Axi relic on rotation B and C, 14.29% each for every Axi relic.

Best For Solos: Void, Marduk (Sabotage)

Marduk is a Void Sabotage mission which guarantees a Neo/Axi Relic drop on every completion. If you are solo farming and want to quickly farm a lot of relics, head to this particular node and start. I would recommend you to take a tanky frame since this is Void and enemies can take you down pretty easily.

Drop Chances: 50% for Axi and 50% for Neo Relics.


Farming using Syndicate Packs

Every syndicate vendor in the game offers a 3 relic pack that you can buy for 20,000 standing. Every pack has a guaranteed rare inside. Make sure to wear your sigils so that you can farm enough standing.


How To Open Void Relics

This part is self-explanatory, but I am still going to post it so no one has any questions

  • Open up your star chart
  • On the top right side, click the fissure icon
  • Select the relic mission, depends on which relic you want to open
  • When you click on the mission, a relic box will open up asking you to select relic
  • After selection, the mission will load up
  • Follow the orders given by Lotus and you’re good to go.

Note: You can refine relics using the Relic Refinement area located in your ship. This increases your chances of getting the rare drop.

How To Find Treasurer – Location

How To Find Treasurer – Everyone who is trying to farm for Protea or Weapon parts for Stropha, Stahlta or Velox is looking for the Treasurer. This enemy was added with the new Deadlock Protocol Update.

Locating him might be difficult for new players, don’t worry anymore, this guide will help you out.


How To Find Treasurer Location

First, you have to play the new Corpus tileset and wait for the Treasurer to spawn in. He might take a while to spawn so I’ll recommend you do missions that take a while. I did mine on Mobile Defense mission. He will spawn marked with a waypoint.

  • Fossa (Venus) – Granum Crown
  • Trition (Neptune) – Exemplar Crown
  • Oceanum (Pluto) – Zenith Crown

Some players might have trouble taking him out since he’s invisible and tanky. Just take a weapon with magnetic build to take out shields fast, and another weapon with viral build to take out health.

Once you takedown the treasurer, he will drop a Granum Crown (Type will depend on the difficulty of your mission)

One thing to note; Only one treasurer spawns per mission.

Did you guys enjoy the new quest? – I’ve been using Protea for a few hours now and really enjoying playing with her. I am also working on a few builds that will be published on the website soon.

Warframe Tier List – What is the best Warframe?

Warframe Tier List – What is the best Warframe? – This is a question that arises in almost every Tenno, there are so many to choose from. Players who have lower mastery rank/less experienced in the game face difficulties while choosing the best frame.

Answer From a Veteran: I would say that there is no such thing as the best frame in this game. Every player has a different playstyle, which is why modding is a huge part of the game. There are different scenarios in which you might have to choose a different frame to complete a mission easily. For example; if you are playing a defense mission, I would recommend the team to use a setup with Trinity Energy Vampire build (for unlimited energy) and Banshee Resonating Quake build (for killing enemies at range).

Warframe Tier List – What is the best Warframe?

As I said earlier, there is no best frame in the game, but I will still categorize Frames according to various scenarios/mission types

Best Overall frame for Every Mission?

A frame that can deal damage…

or give buffs to teammates?

can become invisible and grant invisibility to teammates?

Who is it?

Octavia

One of the best frames in the game, hands down. Since the release, this frame has been my go-to. Absolutely melts down enemies with her Mallet, the cool thing is that enemies stop shooting as soon as you spawn the Mallet.

Why?

  • Unlimited Invisibility
  • Grants multiple buffs such as multishot, invisibility to the whole team
  • Huge damage dealer.

Best Tanky Frame

Below I have listed the best frames in the Tankiness category.

Inaros

The Egyptian god is not liked by many, but the frame can take any kind of beating and can still survive. The Scarab armor is one of the most powerful ultimate in the game. The frame also would be my #1 in terms of survival since you can literally eat your enemies to restore your health. Also, you can Darude sandstorm your way out of almost every fight.

Why?

  • Insane Armor, thanks to Scarab Swarm. Inaros has a base armor of 200, with a fully charged Swarm this can be increased to 400. Combine this with Steel Fiber and you’ll have 620 Armor.
  • Devour your enemies and leech their health.
  • Use Desiccation to blind your enemies

Rhino

Rhino was one of the first frames that were introduced in the game. The frame was literally so tanky, that DE had to debuff it a little bit. Almost everyone that plays this game knows about Rhino and Iron Skin.

  • Provides damage buff with Roar (useful for teammates as well)
  • Iron Skin can help you in remaining alive when your other teammates are falling apart
  • Rhino Stomp can be used as a great CC (Crowd Control) if you have a little duration.

Nidus (Damage + Tank)

If you want to play a frame which offers both tankiness and damage, then Nidus should be your choice. This infestation based frame had seen its peak when it could heal the objectives, gone are the days though. Talking about Tankiness, this frame excels at it, you can leech the armor/health of an enemy using Parasitic Link, whatever damage you take is reflected towards that enemy.

  • Virulence is a great damage based ability. Combine Virulence with Larva to build up your mutation stacks and you’ll be good to go for hours of survival.
  • Nidus’s 4th ability is called Ravenous. This ability spawns a weird-looking infestation pool containing multiple high damage dealing maggots, this infested area also heals everyone. These infested maggots will increase your stacks every time they get a kill.

These were some of the best tanky frames that you can use in the game. I might have missed a few such as Valkyr, Oberon and such. I particularly don’t like those frames in terms of tankiness since they are affected with duration/energy.

Best Damage Dealing Frames

Time to clear some planets?

Let’s find out what the best damage dealing frames are

One thing to keep in mind is that everyone has a different playstyle. Some might like Mesa as a damage dealer, some might like Nova, everything depends on how you like playing the game.

Banshee

Banshee and Resonating Quake is one combo that I can never stop using. I used to do fast defense missions using Banshee to farm relics easily. Another useful ability that Banshee offers is “Sonar”, this ability reveals all critical weak spots of the enemies.

Why?

  • Amazing Damage dealing ability called Sound Quake
  • Sonar can be used to reveal critical hit spots to all of your teammates.
  • Silence can be used to escape from death.

Banshee is amazing at dealing damage at all times but is extremely squishy. You might need help from your teammates for surviving in high-level missions.

Mesa

Mesa’s 4 is so powerful that you can literally clear a room full of enemies with a few clicks. The only thing is that you might run out energy within many times. I love running the peacemaker build with Arcane Energize, thanks to the unlimited energy supply you will never run out of fun time shooting enemies.

Why?

  • Causes absolute destruction no matter how powerful the enemies are. Peacemaker is one of the most powerful ultimates in the game.
  • Mesa’s Shatter Shield (Power 3) makes her tank which reflects incoming damage. The energy shield can last over 20 seconds with the right duration build.
  • Shooting Gallery jams enemy guns while giving bonus damage to Mesa. This effect shifts between teammates.

Best Frame for Spy Missions

Loki Prime

You cannot obtain the primed variant anymore, the non-primed variant will work fine though. The fastest frame in the game when modded right, the frame can stay invisible for the longest duration. You can also use Loki for CC, combined with Irradiating disarm augment and a little range, enemies will start fighting with each other without any weapons.

But Loki is rarely used for anything other than Spy or sabotage missions. But the choice is yours, use whatever you like.

Ivara

Ivara is a huge pain to farm, you really have to learn to speed run spy missions to obtain this frame. But once you have it, spy missions become a piece of cake.

Once you obtain Ivara, just buy the Infiltrate augment from the syndicate vendors. Using Infiltrate + Prowl you can pass through any security barriers such as lasers without being detected.

Is there a Meta in Warframe?

I’ve been asked this a lot of times, hey what is the meta nowadays? – Warframe never had and never will have any meta. I have already written multiple times that you can play with whatever frame you like unless you’re a Limbo :P.

Conclusion

My conclusion for the sake of the tier list are these:

(Judged based on Survivability and all-round usage in every mission)

Tier 1 Frames

  • Octavia: I absolutely love this frame. You can stay invisible, deal a lot of damage and give buffs to your teammates at the same time. When this frame was initially announced, I was skeptical about it getting nerfed. But to this date, I still play and enjoy it.
  • Rhino: Rhino is an absolute tank is still good till date. My reason for listing it here is because it’s really easy to obtain for beginners. The prime variant might cost a lot since it has been vaulted.
  • Mesa: Press 4 to win, the right build can make your Mesa a tank and enemy killer. There’s no doubt about Mesa being a Tier 1 frame. Now, has a primed variant with better stats.
  • Chroma: Huge armor and damage buff, level 100-150? – No problem. The armor and damage scaling with the right-build will make this frame insane for any high-level mission.
  • Inaros: Another tank that takes damage like a champ and survives with a problem. The rage build gives you unlimited energy and desiccation ability with range gives you unlimited finishers on enemies. If you run out of health, just eat one of your enemy, simple.
  • Nidus: Nidus’s Virulence is one of the highest damage-dealing abilities in the game, once it’s fully powered up. Larva is an amazing CC ability that latches all enemies around you. So we have CC + Damage both in one package.
  • Trinity: Best support frame in the game. Can constantly heal teammates and prevent their death. Whoever runs this frame in PUBs is an angel.

Tier 2 Frames

  • Nova: Nova is amazing, there’s no doubt. But in high-level missions, it might face troubles in surviving. This is a good CC frame altogether and amazing for running defense missions in quick succession.
  • Banshee: Banshee deserves to stay in Tier 1, I know. Abilities such as Sonar and Sound Quake are one of the best damage-dealing abilities in the game. But my reason for putting it here is because this frame doesn’t survive well in high-level missions. You always need support around you.
  • Equinox: Amazing but squishy. Great frame for low level exterminate missions.

Tier 3 Frames

  • Frost: Moved to Tier 3 because it becomes obsolete in high-level missions. The globe is not powerful enough and disappears as soon as nullifiers touch them.
  • Vauban: Vauban’s 4 is great, but with a lot of great frames in the game now. There’s no great ability that this frame provides you with.
  • Volt: Good for running around fast. Can be a good enough CC but not compared to the other options that we have now.
  • Gara: The glass-based frame was something I thought would kill Frost, but then they nerfed it.
  • Zephyr: Haven’t seen a lot of people using this frame and I myself don’t like it. All abilities are average.

Tier 4 Frames

  • Ember: After the World on Fire nerf, I don’t think anyone even uses this frame anymore. Before the nerf, there were lobbies full of people running around with their 4 triggered. This created a community outcry and DE had to nerf it.
  • Titania: To this date, I have seen only 5-6 people using this frame. If you like flying around as a Butterfly, then this might be the frame for you. If DE ever decides to create Titania Prime, I am sure this frame will get reworked.
  • Wukong: Recently got reworked, but still don’t think it’s good enough compared to the other frames. I will change this if someone in the comment section proves it to be good enough.
  • Harrow: Obsolete support frame that works around shields. Leveled it to 30 and never touched it again.

I have not listed a few frames in the tier list above because I couldn’t find their fit in the list. Frames like Nekros & Hydroid can’t be put in tier lists since they have a niche use. Please keep in mind, these are my thoughts and these do not change anything. Play with whatever frame you like.

I will be updating this list time by time, drop your suggestions for lists so that I can create more of these. Some more lists like Best Support Warframe, Best CC Warframe are coming up soon, in the process of writing them now.

How To Farm Panthera Prime & Karyst Prime Relics

Our Desert King is finally getting the prime treatment, this will make a lot of people happy, including me. With the prime access, we are also getting the primed variants of Karyst and Panthera.

The exact stats of both of these weapons are not known as of now, I’ll make sure to update them once the update drops. The update is on July 14 if you don’t know, the date is the same for every region, although I am not sure about the time.


Karyst Prime Relics

This master blade is the heavier, oversized and far more lethal version of the signature weapon of an extinct order of Tenno assassins.

Panthera Prime Relics

The max-velocity saw-launcher, perfected. Features a larger mag, faster fire and a radial, slashing ricochet. Apparently, Panthera prime’s shots explode on impact.

  • Panthera Prime Blueprint – Axi C5
  • Panthera Prime Barrel – Lith P3
  • Panthera Prime Stock – Meso N10
  • Panthera Prime Receiver – Meso P2

Prime Access Details

Bonus Tip: Do not immediately start building your weapons once you farm the parts. This is the best time to make some platinum if you need it. Look at warframe.market and check how much are the parts selling for. Read the full platinum farming guide here.

How To Use Archwing in Cambion Drift, Deimos

All open-world areas are hard to navigate on foot, this is where you Archwing or K-Drive will come into use. Even with a Volt with full speed build, I was struggling to roam around since I didn’t have an Archwing equipped. Everyone has to grind quite a bit for getting Xaku and Necramech, so you’ll have to roam around a lot.

In this article, we will find out how you can use Archwing in Cambion Drift, Deimos, that is the new infested open-world.


How To Use Archwing in Cambion Drift

To be able to use Archwing, you’ll first have to make sure that you have completed “The Archwing” quest. This quest will be available for you once you have unlocked the Mars Junction. I know this information might be irrelevant because you are already in Deimos but I am mentioning it so nothing is left out.

Important: Make sure you have any Archwing already crafted, these are similar to other weapons. My favourite is Itzal for fast speeds.

Once you’ve checked out the previous requirement. You need the Archwing Launcher Segment to be installed into your Foundry. To obtain the blueprint for the same, head to your Clan Dojo and craft it. This will require 30 minutes for crafting and can be rushed for 10 platinum. Once complete, go ahead and install it in your Foundry.

After this, go to your Arsenal > Select the Q wheel (3rd option) > replace one of the things with Archwing Launcher. Now go to Deimos and move to any open area, and Press Q to select Archwing Launcher. That’s all you’ve successfully equipped the archwing and you’re ready to roll. You can exit from flying mode by pressing E.
