Castanas Secondary Weapon

[ratings]

warframe castanas secondary weapon

Some reinforcements just came in. The Castanas are these nasty remotely triggered electrical death traps.

The way it works is, you toss out up to six of these little suckers and run your under-powered frame off to a chicken corner. While you’re cowering in the corner, you light all six of the Castanas up at once, electrocuting any poor hostile standing near it. They go off like an electricity bomb. Zap!

Grinlok Rifle (Primary Weapon)

[ratings]

The Grinlok Rifle just became available in the market. It’s nice to see weapons being introduced so soon after the major 12.0 Update. We were surprised to see it so soon, but here it is, the Grinlok Bolt Action Rifle.

 

Grinlok Rifle

 

The Grinlok has a 6 shot magazine – other than that, here is the essential data.

Action: Semi-Auto

Fire Rate: 1.7 Rounds / Second

Reload Time: 2.1 Seconds

Physical Damage: 119

Critical Chance: 15%

Critical Damage: 200%

Status Chance: 35%

So, the Grinlok Rifle hits extremely, devastatingly hard – but you get a very limited amount of shots and a lengthy reload.

Also – it’s worth noting that as of 2/12/2014 the in-game user interface refers to the gun as the Grinlock, which I’m sure will be corrected soon.

What is the Best Warframe?

[ratings]

Which Warframe is the best? This is a very difficult question. Each Warframe has strengths and weaknesses, offering a great deal of customization based on the preferred play-style of the player. One Warframe might be better in a given situation or against a certain enemy, but ultimately the best Warframe for you depends on your preferred style of play.

Let me say it again – The best Warframe fits your play style.

How do you like to play? Are you a FPS player traditionally? Perhaps you would do best with a Warframe more suited for distance. Are you a tank? Is magic your favorite? No one Warframe dominates the field, and when temporary bugs give one frame a freakishly overpowered ability, it gets quickly nerfed...

Akmagnus (Dual Magnus)

[ratings]

With Hotfix 11.9.1 came the Akmagnus. Twice the ammo and twice the stopping power of a single Magnus. There have been mixed reviews on the forums, but there usually are. The reload is slower, obviously, since you are reloading two weapons – but with that you get the ability to plug twice as many holes in your foes.
