Quick Links

Wake up, Tenno! Welcome to the world of Warframe, a third-person looter shooter that combines customization and fast-paced gameplay for an adrenaline-fueled experience. As a Tenno, an ancient race wielding powerful Warframes with incredible abilities, you’ll unleash dual pistols that fire at the speed of light, rain down meteors upon your enemies, and so much more.

“Summon dual pistols that fire at the speed of light, GameTopicate your enemies with a barrage of meteors, and much more.”

However, don’t be fooled by its complexity. Warframe can be a tough nut to crack. The game throws you into the depths without much guidance, leaving you to navigate through constant updates and hundreds of missions. But fear not! Stick with it, and you’ll find yourself immersed in one of the best horde shooters out there, and it won’t cost you a dime. So, dive into our guides to master everything from basic controls to endgame builds for your favorite weapons and Warframes.

“An abrupt end to the in-game tutorial, rapid updates from the developers, and hundreds of missions can make this game seem impenetrable. But if you stick with it, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better horde shooter—let alone a free one.”
