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 – 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 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.

Weapon 101 – Corinth

Corinth, the dual-purpose Tenno shotgun, has brought quite the punch to the battlefield since it’s addition in the December 2017 Ghoul Purge Update. Coming in with some of the highest base Damage in the game for Primaries, it is a versatile weapon, cycling between its pellet rounds or Alt-Fire grenades. Its base Stats also give Read More

Weapon 101 – Burston / Burston Prime

The Burston is a burst-fire rifle of Tenno design. It fires three-round bursts in rapid succession to wear down a target and provide better precision than a full-auto rifle. The Burston will perform better at longer ranges due to its lower recoil, resulting in less time spent centering the reticle and more time relieving bad Read More

Weapon 101 – Anstrum / Prisma Angstrum

The Angstrum and Prisma Angstrum – a pair of handheld rocket launchers. Coming in with the highest base Damage for all Secondaries, these variants deliver a massive punch, especially to Grineer Machinery, Corpus Robotics, and Fossilized Infested. Just be sure to keep yourself and allies out of the blast, that is, unless you have a Read More

Weapon 101 – Braton / MK1-Braton / Braton Vandal / Braton Prime

The Braton series of weapons is a solid platform for beginning players. They let one know that – in this game about metal space ninjas fighting clones – you can still find something as basic as an automatic rifle and use it to kill said clones. The MK1-Braton presents the option of a more familiar Read More
