Warframe Weapon Tier List

Warframe Weapons Tier List
By | September 22nd, 2022 | Categories: Warframe

In the dangerous outskirts of space, having the right weapons can mean life or death in many situations. Warframe offers players a plethora of items that they can use to protect themselves and slay enemies. From precise single-fire pistols to moving offensive drones, there are a lot of potential armaments to include in your arsenal. The question that needs to be asked is, “Which of these weapons should you actually get?” This Warframe weapon tier list will help players figure that out.

Warframe Weapon Types

There are seven types of weapons in Warframe, but only five are used in close-up battles. Archwings and Railjacks are mainly used for space battles and exploration, so this tier list won’t include those categories. This ranking guide will cover weapons used in face-to-face fights.

During their space incursions, Tenos can equip five armaments to their kit: a primary, a secondary, a melee, a modular, and a Robotic. Modulars are not specific items but rather a combination of several components, so finding the best ones for this type of weapon relies on the variety of certain parts. It would be hard to grade each element due to their niche role, so they will not be included in the list.



Each of these weapons has its own functions and sub-categories. Defining and explaining how each of these works will help gamers understand the tier list better. Here are all the offensive items in Warframe:

Primary

Primary Weapons are the main damage-dealing items in Warframe. They bring out the most firepower among every item in this game, so gamers should be very picky about this category. The primary weapon will influence whether your playstyle suits range battles or close-quarter fights.

When your guns fail and run out of bullets, you must make sure you have a trusty melee weapon to fall back on. Whether it be slashing or smashing, these items can get you out of sticky situations. For these armaments, you must see if you prefer slow, massive blunt damage, or fast-and-lethal slices.
