Started playing this the other day, and I agree it can be tough playing solo.

At one point I was essentially locked down in a corridor by infestation monsters who kept respawning faster than I could kill them. I started using Loki powers to slip by everyone instead of fighting though, and that seemed to work pretty well.

I picked up the basic shot-gun and it seems pretty powerful. Looking to get a new pistol next I think.

Personally, Latron has been my favorite gun forever. It really sucks when you first get it though, especially after U7. I think it only starts with 15 shots now or something? Even with maxed out Magazine Warp mod you only have 20 shots... But! If you can stick with it, the thing does nice damage later on modded out, especially if you headshot a lot :)

As for other rifles... People with the Boltor seem to tear things apart. Gorgon is fun, but eats ammo up... Haven't used it yet with the new mod system. Paris is really fun! Unless it's vs Infested... Don't see many Burston players around, so I don't know about that one.

As for shotguns, I enjoyed the Strun, but it has a looong reload. Never used the Boar... And if you get the chance to buy the HEK shotgun, do it. It's awesomesauce.

Sorry for belated response, my internet died for a few.

Warframe is in the top 10 games by current player count on Steam Stats. That's... Wow. And here I was honestly thinking they were bringing it to Steam a little too early.

Ouch, I am NOT feeling this auto-pistol. Bought a Sicarus just to try something other than the default sidearm, and it's not pulling it's weight. The recoil makes headshotting with anything but the first shot in the burst pretty much impossible (which is pointless on a pistol, unless you're panic shooting at something), and it eats ammo like nothing else.

I might keep it around for some mastery levels, but now my next chunk of change is going towards a sidearm again. Maybe I should just go for double Lato?

Bolto is a pretty fun pistol, if you like projectile weapons. Then later on you can make the Akbolto to pin every enemy on the wall!

Kraken is good too. It's supposedly an upgraded Lex, but with double shot.

Furis and Afuris are beast, but they chew up ammo like no tomorrow! Bring ammo kits, especially if you get Afuris.

Haven't used the Bronco, Viper or Aklatos.

Akilato is very versatile sidearm. It has good enought accuracy for headshoting, relatively fast reload, 30 clip and decent damage. Snipetron is nice. Its accurate even whitout scope to close-medium range headshots. Problem is the pathetic clip size and no reasonable way to expand it.

I have tryed to lvl Strun but cant just get it working right. Maybe my mod combo is off but the thing just does not have enought stopping power for the clip size and extremely slow reload.

I got the AKboltos, and they have one of he more satisfying gun sounds, beyond being highly lethal and pinning dudes to walls.

Strun feels really really strong to me, you probably just need to get it leveled up a few levels and get the right mods on it. I've been running with that lately for my rifle slot.

The Paris is great. Once you get the timing down you become a Legolas death machine FROM THE FUTURE. And multishot mods send 2 arrows without deviation (the arrow deals the damage 2 times).

Strum was needing multishot. Snipetron started realy shine when armor penetration was added. Armorpenetration + critical chance and pure damage = one shot killing again, now I just need to add effects as it goes up.

The new patch notes talked about update to item rarity. Anybody els have noticed the blueprints are even more rare now? Cant even harverst cronus BP anymore for cash. I just wish you could even buy the invidiual armor pieces blueprints from store. When I realised the 35k blueprints still needed you to find the pieceprints I pretty mutch yelled out loud about the free to play model. Weapons work ok, but with current rarity getting all 3 blueprints for warframe, finding oroching cells and other parts and paying the building costs for all 4 build you need to do is just way too expensive.

After playing more, the game has been pretty good fun overall. At this point I'd love to have another faction added into the mix, and maybe some more possible "environmental hazards" aside from the ones already in the game, although I'm sure this stuff is in the works.

I recently looked at my foundry and realized I had the Rhino helmet blue prints, so I've been trying to get the other pieces. I found systems pretty easily, but the chassis has been eluding me for a while now.

Also, anyone know if there's a way to turn off "Lotus" or whatever her name is? (the HQ person).

I'd say its a bit of a cross between ME3 and Left 4 Dead in that you are moving through large levels as opposed to defending one location generally,

I've got all three pieces of the Rhino now, just need that Rubedo stuff to build everything (luckily got a neural sensor on my second attempt on the Golem).

Also, I'm guessing built frames don't actually come with their abilities? I'm not sure if I've actually found any for Rhino yet.

Installed yesterday expecting to deinstall soon after. Actually spent a couple of hours in a row and can't wait to get back at it. Still need to figure out the upgrade system and some interface quirks.

Going solo doesnt work out after the first couple of missions, but multiplayer is fast and fun since everyone is trying to do the most damage.

Due to the speedrun character of the sessions i still dont know how the loot system works. Is it based on damage dealed, first come first serve?

Tried this out last night and it's actually pretty fun. I love the Warframe designs and the combat and movement feels really good. I only did the tutorial and the first mission solo. I'm hoping to play some co-op later.

The only downside so far is the seemingly large amount of locked content and the market prices seem a bit steep. Also, do the environments and enemies get any more varied?

All credits picked up are shared. Materials and mods are shareable, but you have to go pick them up yourself. Don't get anything for having most damage done and the like, except maybe an ego stroke :P

I'm fairly sure they come with a set of their skill cards :)

I don't know about locked content since I'm rank 7 mastery, but I agree platinum prices are a bit crazy. Luckily there's blueprints for just about everything to buy with credits!

As for environments & enemies, there's only 3 tile sets and the 3 factions in the game still. Repetitive, but oddly still fun haha!

Every frame has 4 unique abilities, and during the last LiveStream they hinted at "season 2" mod cards and possible new abilities for the frames!

And yeah, you can totally be an all out melee machine if you wanted. Loki is especially fun to melee with since he has an invisibility skill which turns all his melee attacks turn to crits :)

This playlist walks through most of the Warframes and covers some of the intricacies of the game.
He also manages to look cool while playing, unlike the GB guys. But let's be honest, Giant Bomb has never managed to make a game look good by merit of the level of play.

Am I playing this game wrong by going the solo route? I can't seem to find anything other than the occasional skill. Also, are blueprints and orkin reactors only available after unlocking access to other planet systems? I'm only on the second system at the moment, and I've only found one blueprint chronus, and I'm pretty sure that you get that from the boss anyways.

Not that I know of. Everything is shared and you can only benefit from the increased damage output. There is very little scaling in this game, if any at all.

The one thing that is potentially disrupted by having other players around is attempts to play the game "stealthily", but the stealth mechanics don't work very well anyways, so it's not that big of a deal. (Once you enemies are alerted to your presence, that's it for your attempts at stealth. Also, the bow is the only silent firing weapon in the game, so any other gunfire will alert enemies. This means you have to try and sneak around using only melee kills and also not be seen by anything once, or else they are put on alert and aren't going to be surprised again.) I'm guessing they are still testing things out for stealth play, because the mechanics were just changed for the most recent update. I don't know how it worked previously.

If you want to sneak attack enemies for huge damage (even in groups), just choose Loki and use the cloak ability judiciously.

Some bosses are almost impossible to solo.

Also, after playing with Ash for a bit, I think I'll like Loki more and Hyena drops his blueprintes. I hate Hyena :l (one of the bosses not soloable unless you have a specific gun and are very good).

Every planet has a boss and every boss drops blueprints. Vor drops Cronus sword, and the rest drop BPs for the other Warframes. To get Orokin Reactors and Catalysts, you must wait for a special rare alert mission with a "?" reward. Highly suggest following this forum!

Whoops, I missed out on two of those alerts. :\

As for the question of wanting to play solo, the only real concern that I have is that i'd play with more experienced players who'd breeze through the map as I stumble about exploring areas, plus I enjoy the solo aspect at times. I got the impression very quickly that there is little to nothing in the way of scaling based on party size, but i find the challenge very exciting, especially when I somehow come out of a instant death situation battered but alive.

Speaking of battered.. I login now, there's an alert. so I click on it and it takes me to the mission.. difficulty 4. I've only been playing level 1 difficulty missions.. and it's infection-based.

the only i'm surviving is by jumping onto crates and shooting/jump in air and downward thrust of my sword to conserve ammo, since from what I've seen only one enemy has a ranged attack and another blows up when it dies, so i stay on top of a crate and hope I don't fall. I'm still F'D, but i'm alive..

Added! Banshee is the hardest frame to get right now because there's no boss to get her blueprints from. You pretty much have to grind defense missions endlessly and hope a Banshee BP reward pops up. But, go with whatever frame you think has the coolest sounding skills :)

Also! Plugging my alert mission idea here for views & opinions :P
