Episode 7 – The Syndicates

Episode 7 of Cephalon Squared is available for your listening pleasure! Cephalon Squared, for those that may not be aware, is the best Warframe podcast made by two Australian guys pretending to be an Artificial Intelligence, no competition!

This week, we decided to do a special on the Syndicates – so we’ve taken a deep dive into all 6 of the competing Syndicates, along with an overview of the neutral Syndicates. We talk about what they are (first and foremost) and why you should care, among many other things!


  • News (lots of stuff for Xbox fans)!
  • We take a look at the Syndicates – lore, mods, and weapons!
  • Beginner’s tip: the neutral Syndicates!
  • Advanced tip: levelling multiple Syndicates!
