Warframe Weapon Tier List

Published

on

If you’re looking for a Warframe Weapon Tier List you’ve come to the right place.

Warframe is a free-to-play online shooter that was released way back in 2013. Despite its old age, the title still has active players, amassing nearly 50 million in 2019. This continued popularity is largely due to the game’s multiple expansions. In fact, just last March, Warframe received yet another major addition to its game world: the Corpus Promixa expansion.

With all these new additions to the game, it’s worth revisiting to check for new gear and weapons. And when it comes to weapons, Warframe has a lot. Luckily, our Warframe Weapon Tier List is here to save the day. For this list, we’ll be ranking all the weapons that exist in the game, according to their usefulness and power. Yes, that’s right. All of the weapons! Primary, Secondary, and Melee.

Now, let’s get to our Warframe Weapon Tier List!

WARFRAME WEAPON TIER LIST: WEAPON IMPROVEMENTS

Warframe’s leveling and modification system forces players to commit to weapons if they wish to get stronger. Now that you know the best guns in the game, it’s worth touching on how you can utilize them.

AFFINITY

To rank up your weapons, you will need to earn affinity, which is how the game refers to experience points. Your entire arsenal of weapons gains affinity whenever you or your team scores kills. That said, the best way to level up your weapons is to only keep the most important ones. If you come across a weapon you don’t need, dispose of it immediately. This is because killing an enemy with a weapon splits the affinity among the weapons you currently hold. So, the less weapons in your arsenal, the better.

MODS

Equipping your weapons with useful modifications can give you the edge you need over the game’s enemies. Fortunately, you can acquire mods simply by playing the game. Battle with enemies, complete missions, and participate in events to get as many mods as you can.

 

Conclusion

You can play Warframe for hours on end without getting bored. With an ever-expanding world and fun gameplay, it’s hard not to get hooked. Though to be a good player, you’ll also need to plan out your gear, and weapons play a central role in that department. You don’t want to invest hours of your day leveling up a weapon only to realize later that it was a complete waste of time. So, study our Warframe Weapon Tier List, and try to get any of the top-tier weapons. If you do that, we guarantee that you’ll breeze through the game.

We hope you found this list useful! If so, you may also like our Warframe Tier List.
