Is there any easy way to find specific mods? I'm trying to find both damage/multishot mods for my Paris/Kunai, and charge damage stuff so I can get Galatine to do even more stupid damage.

As a clone, you will have to choose one of the three starter Grineer: Sawman, Lancer, Scorpion. From there, you'll want to play the tutorial, where you lug around some Void-breaching machinery for Captain Vor, then get horribly slaughtered by a Tenno extraction team.

It'd never happen, but it'd be pretty rad if it was possible to have a mission type where you could play as stock enemies to prevent a team of player Tenno from achieving a goal.

Have it work like Counter-Operative from Perfect Dark.

I thought Radial Disarm was awful until I hit a big grineer survival mission and landed it on 20+ enemies, including 3 heavy gunners.

Then I had a bunch of idiots with sticks chasing me.

Radial Disarm is the funniest goddamn skill in the game in grineer defense and I will accept no argument.

Hitting 20+ dudes and running around in Yakety Sax mode while they try to tase you is glorious.

If you're having trouble aiming with the Lex, you're not going to have a good time with the Sicarus.

If it weren't for the neurode requirements, I'd suggest the Bronco. I'm using the duals now and oh my god they're the most effective thing I have.

Also, the Grakata changes have made it go from a joke weapon that wasn't even putting out numbers in a lot of cases to a scary bullet hose.

You'd need 4 players with the Lapis Antitoxin (that one gives 25 points, the worst antitoxin only gives you 10 and there's no 50 point AT) or just one guy with the vermillion (100 points), remember that the game only logs your highest score per mission, not the sum of all your mission scores. If you do things right, only one farmer and one mission is required to complete the event for four people.

The "fun F2P" part was when the 100 point antitoxin didn't exist, so you went on a 4 man Lapis party and one guy forgot to equip his flask, stopping the mission at 75 points and wasting everyone else's time and materials .

Metroid Prime: poo poo Edition is a thing that should be avoided and the person who farmed up the vermilion AT for my group is a saint. The defense is also the first time where my health's been relevant, due to eviscerators constantly proccing Slash.

How in the hell are people affording maxing Serration/Redirection/Hornet Strike? Like, is there some place that's good for farming Rare 5 cores?

With all the credit rewards being given out via invasions and the like, couldn't you just throw mountains of credits and common cores at it?

I have enough credits to swim around in them like Scrooge McDuck from all the invasions and there is no amount of common cores that will even make a dent in even my level 4 Serration.

And I don't have mountains of common cores, anyway. I'm kind of tempted to farm up Necros and find an Infested defense to galatine/desecrate on.

Get a volt. I know the OP says not to buy most warframes but the volt is only 75 plat, and it comes with a slot and a reactor, which cost 20 plat a piece. It was very much worth my purchase.

Volt, Zorencoptering, Speed, and a low gravity Nightmare mission provided me with the greatest launch in the game's history.

Also, if you want Nightmare mods easy, watch for Unda on Venus to be a nightmare mission. If you have Loki and some power duration mods, you can make it through without firing a single shot.

I ran it until I had everything I wanted except Hammer Shot.

Jesus christ, Penta. I just made it to Wave 15 of an Orokin Derelict defense mission by pointing the gun at the cryopod and pushing the trigger a lot.

I only stopped then because I thought it was offering me a boar prime part I didn't have.

Pretty cool that I can set it up to take on each faction most optimally for each level

I thought the Ignis was pretty bad at the beginning, but holy poo poo, it takes off. I really want Rifle Ammo Mutation for it.

I have learned an important lesson.

Do not use Vortex on capture targets. It may make them easy to shoot to death, but there's a chance it fires them through the geometry and they're gone forever.

What's the going rate for a max serration? I saw a guy offering 900 plat for a max one which made me want to dump everything I had into my current one to get it there but I have neither the credits nor cores to do it.

I've seen someone offering one for a hundred plat, but it got snatched up pretty quick.

Serration takes 147 of a core that's twice as good as the current best in the game to max.

edit: My Penta just went from 2k and change up to quite a bit over 5k from upgrading from 75% to 90% on Serration.

Wikia has all the relevant info. Best way to get things done is to build one vermilion antitoxin (100 pts) and take a group (or tag along with one). Do not rush to buy one, vermilion runs will be plentiful in the last days of the event. Second best way is to run with four people each possessing a lapis anti-toxin (25pt ea.).

Frost is mandatory. Rhinos and Novas and Vaubans to kit out. Nyx may or may not help since the enemies will murder you if you're in range.

Frost isn't mandatory. The biggest thing my group had to worry about was Eviscerators, since the end of the defense makes them do brutal bleed damage.

We had Ash/Nova/Loki/Vauban and pulled it off without any damage.

Any essential mods for the Penta? So far I'm just rocking serration and spilt chamber. Though I'm thinking spilt chamber doesn't work so well, will probably replace with firestorm

Firestorm, wildfire, split chamber, serration, cryo rounds, hellfire, heavy caliber, fast hands.



You can probably solo the first 40 waves of ODD without moving with that setup. I don't have heavy caliber, maxed serration, or a maxed cryo rounds on it and it's oneshotting everything but ancient healers at around that point. Those take two whole shots, or one if you impact them with the projectile.

If you need to powerlevel someone, this would be a ridiculous way to do it. The only obstacle is mind numbing boredom.

Any tips on making the Ignus into a killing weapon? I just threw a blue potato on it and its level 24 at the moment. Also got the Castanas built and loving the crap out of them, going to actually have to invest in some secondary mods for once.

Edit: How does split chamber work on the Ignis? Per trigger pull or per ammo used?

Ignis should just be constantly fed potatoes until you notice that everything in the cone just starts dying.

Mine's at 5 and until you get to really loving high level stuff, it's just wave the cursor around and watch experience numbers pop out. The only weapon I have that's more deadly is the Penta.

This is what i was already using. I affectionately refer to them as suicide stars, because anything running in front of me will make me instantly gib myself.

I tried to do a raid mission with my friends earlier and jesus christ I could barely hurt level 71 Grineer. I brought a Corrosive/Blast Ignis and it was functionally useless, and to kill things with Galatine I was having to hop up and down to cycle between ground finishers and knockdowns. The stars were somehow doing okay, which gives me hope for them once I max out Hornet Strike with this newfangled Endo system. Unfortunately, with Lethal Torrent and Gunslinger, I was pretty much just throwing the entire bag of stars at once and ran out super fast even with pistol mutation.

is there an irc besides the synirc one at this point or does just barely anyone use irc

Void missions literally just aren't worth it anymore, yet they didn't down tune them at all, so its still poo poo, and in some cases more difficult, (the 4 tower equivalents instantly spawn enemies that would appear later on in the missions, like bombards) but the rewards are less than a joke. They could have thrown people a bone and left some older items in there or at least credits.
