Weapon 101 – Heliocor / Synoid Heliocor

Forged by the Cephalons, Heliocor and Synoid Heliocor are a hammer pair that feed data to your Codex as you smash enemies. Heliocor, a signature weapon from Cephalon Simaris, is a high Impact Damage dealer second only to Arca Titron. Its sister, Cephalon Suda’s Synoid Heliocor, isn’t as strong but adds a Specter generating effect. Read More

Weapon 101 – Ferrox

The Ferrox is one of three spearguns in Warframe. Given its Corpus origin it has a blocky, cyber-tech design and utilizes Electric Damage for its alt-fire mechanic. As this is our first (alphabetically) introduction to the Speargun archetype, it is important to point out that Spearguns in Warframe have a unique secondary fire mode where Read More

Weapon 101 – Fulmin

Saying that making a dual-fire rifle good is like catching lightning in a bottle is less of a testament to the difficulty of making good weapons in Warframe and more of a blueprint for the Fulmin. Colloquially referred to as the “lightning gun”, it is one part Tenora and one part Arca Plasmor – quite Read More

Weapon 101 – Endura

If style is your game, then add Endura to your list. This Rapier is top of its class and though a Prime version does not yet exist, it is still a worthwhile pursuit. How to Acquire Unless you pick it up from the Market Pre-Built for 175 Platinum, you’ll have to reach MR7 and head Read More

Warframe 101 – Mesa

Thank you to DogingDoge for help with the main image for this article (above). Alad V fled across the Desert, and the Gunslinger followed. Born of his Mutalist experimentation, Mesa, the Outcast and Wielder of the Exalted Regulator Pistols, first stood opposed to the Tenno with Update 15.5 back in November 2014 with Operation: Mutalist Read More

Weapon 101 – Kestrel

The Kestrel is a Tenno melee weapon of the Glaive family, but it’s not really a Glaive. It’s a boomerang. If you’ve ever seen the Mad Max movies, then you know how awesome metal boomerangs can be. The Kestrel, though, has the added bonus of bouncing off walls and knocking down enemies, so I personally Read More

Weapon 101 – Mire

Born from the Great Plague, Mire is an infested sword laced with poison. While it can be attained relatively early with help, it isn’t among the strongest swords available, so don’t expect it to carry you through Late Game without some polishing. How to Acquire The Mire Blueprint is picked up from the Market for Read More

Weapon 101 – Dera / Dera Vandal

The Dera is a Corpus laser rifle with an automatic trigger… and is sadly nothing to write home about. Visually, the Dera is interesting and while firing the laser charges can be seen to fire out of the top and bottom barrels in an alternating pattern. The Dera can often be seen in the hands Read More
