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

Weapon 101 – Quartakk

Forged by the Grineer, the Quartakk is a Burst-Fire Rifle with fairly decent stats all around. Unloading 4 rounds at a time, it can deal out some significant Damage when tuned. A little tricky to get your hands on, but definitely worth giving a try. How to Acquire Getting Quartakk is a bit RNG dependent. Read More

Weapon 101 – Snipetron / Snipetron Vandal

The Snipetron is the Corpus Rifle that does exactly what it says on the box (i.e., it’s a sniper). Not only does it have the coolest name out of the snipers (it could really only be cooler if it were called Snipey Sniperson, or something equally ridiculous), but it looks interesting and… isn’t terrible. Is Read More

Weapon 101 – Nukor

Nukor – the Grineer microwave sidearm. It’s a strange weapon – its Damage output starts at 30% and ramps up over 0.6 seconds as you fire continuously, which then decays after you stop firing. It also has a huge Critical Damage multiplier, but virtually no Critical Damage Chance. It’s just STRANGE. But at the same Read More

Weapon 101 – Boltace / Telos Boltace

The Tonfa pair, Boltace, forged of its brethren, will leave your enemies full of holes. These spiked twins are among the strongest Tonfas in the game and can be obtained relatively early. Later on, the Telos Boltace variant will also become available, improving on its base version. How to Acquire Both Boltace and Telos Boltace Read More

Weapon 101 – Buzlok

The Buzlok is that gun from The Fifth Element, minus the explosions… and it’s a sniper rifle. This rifle is one of the more unique weapons available to players of Warframe; however, its gimmick comes at the price of being an ineffective weapon in the traditional sense. Generally, sniper rifles are very hard hitting, single-shot, Read More

Weapon 101 – Boltor / Boltor Prime / Telos Boltor

The Boltor and its variants are a staple of any Tenno arsenal. The base Boltor is also one of the first Warframe-unique weapons available to new players, providing a very small taste of the massive array of weapons in the game. The Boltor is a fully automatic rifle that shoots nail-like projectiles thatdeal primarily Puncture Read More

Weapon 101 – Kronen / Kronen Prime

The Kronen: a Tonfa pair that will slice through your enemies. Added in August of 2014 with Operation Cryotic Front, Kronen is a fan-designed weapon that was later followed by Kronen Prime in March 2018, alongside Zephyr Prime. How to Acquire Kronen’s Blueprint can be purchased for 65,000 credits from the Market after reaching MR3. It is a Read More
