Weapon 101 – Orthos / Orthos Prime

The Orthos is a dual-bladed Polearm that resembles the result of a bored Tenno duct taping a Dual Skana onto a Bo before swinging it around with wild abandon until everything in the room is dead. At Mastery Rank 2, the Orthos is an excellent melee weapon for new Tenno to take through the Star Read More

Warframe 101 – Octavia

Released alongside Update 20 in early 2017, Octavia is one of only several frames with their own acquisition quest, Octavia’s Anthem. This is a really enjoyable quest (although frustrating at times), that has a very original story thread running through it – I do recommend you play through it if you get the chance. If 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 – 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

Warframe 101 – Khora

Khora, the crazy cat lady, joined Warframe in early 2018 as a later part of Update 22 (“Beasts of the Sanctuary”, which included the Sanctuary Onslaught game mode). Initially touted to be the flag bearer for the Damage changes to IPS, this was later shelved, as the team realised that these changes would have a Read More
