so you see, that's where the trouble began.
that smile.
that damned smile.

So why do we need a console thread?
  • Different Guilds,
  • There are currently differences in the UI,
  • HUGE differences in trading prices and techniques,
  • Spoilers from the latest updates,
The main thread is located here: https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3585612

Most discussion on modding weapons & frames, farming materials, storyline quests and everything to do with Warframe in general will probably get a better answer on there.

As a rule of thumb: if it applies to the PC and console versions, post it in the main thread; if it only applies to the console version or you're dodging spoilers, post it here.

Fair enough. So what's Warframe?

https://www.warframe.com/game/quickstart

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbHFGE4Siow

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOE6528pwFc

Warframe is a game about space ninjas and ha ha ha no way I'm not spoiling that in the OP, play the Second Dream quest. The backstory is a little confusing, but a long time ago in a galaxy far far away there were these dudes called the Orokin. Their empire collapsed, and their top warriors - the warframes - were put to sleep because their war was over.

You play one of these warriors waking up to discover that the relays (which enable planet-to-planet travel) have been shut down, and the system is enveloped in a war between two armies: the Grineer, and the Corpus. The Grineer are a clone army who want to eat your delicious warframe at the start of the game, and the Corpus are a trade cult obsessed with the Art of the Deal and robits.

There's also the Infested, but they're not so much an army as a crazy mutation slowly overtaking everything, and you occasionally find Corrupted, who are grineer and corpus who wandered into Orokin leftovers and got possessed by them.

There's a lot more to it than that, but if you want to find out more, do the story quests, scan stuff and read the codex on your ship.

Right, but why should I play Warframe?

Did I mention space ninjas? Because you are a ninja, in space. When I say you flip about the level with parkour I don't want you to imagine Assassins Creed style slow climbing, I want you to imagine Mirror's Edge, Prince of Persia style running along walls, bullet jumping across huge gaps and sliding along the floor while shooting two guns. It's fast, and it's fun as hell.

There are swords, and whips, and hammers, and clubs; staves, axes, daggers, katana nikana, nunchaku, spears, rapiers, polearms and knuckle dusters.

And that's just the melee weapons.

When you count up all the melee weapons, rifles, shotguns, bows, pistols, throwing stars and grenade launchers, there are close to 300 weapons which almost all feel substantially different.

The best thing about Warframe is the fact that in an age of "We're listening," Digital Extremes are actually listening. The aforementioned parkour came about because people were abusing a weapon by helicoptering to skip huge chunks of levels, so instead of banning the weapon they changed the movement system.

Most of the time, when a new frame comes out everyone has a go about how one of the powers doesn't work properly (or would be better if it worked differently), and within the week there'll be a patch to change it. Old frames regularly get a rework by Pablo (PBUH) which are generally extremely well recieved by the community.

They added a horde mode, they added an open world area on Earth and another on Venus. They're adding more storyline quests, constantly adding new frames and weapons, tweaking old frames and have completely overhauled the melee system. There are dailies, weeklies, an evolving pseudo battlepass system (but entirely free) and a ton of different play modes.

It's like having Destiny's exotics, with the movement system sonic 3D should have had, all jammed into Mass Effect 3 multiplayer but with Diablo's randomly generated levels. If you get bored of your current frame's powers, you can always switch to a different one you've unlocked without having to re-do all of the quests and starchart progress.

Also it's a free-to-play which is actually free to play (if you're patient), and you can get almost everything just by grinding and crafting.

You mentioned a guild?

Yes. You need to be in the guild to get the parts and blueprints for some of the frames and weapons. You don't need to commit to any raids (DE removed them anyway) or be social so if you just want the blueprints, nobody's going to be in the slightest bothered.

Heyo, LLJK clan leader here, (R7-PS on PSN)
It has come to my attention that the communities function on the PSN is being phased out by Sony, so we will no longer have the nice easy notification system for new players we loved and enjoyed.
Therefore: I invite all playstation warframe goons and those who wish to become one with our hive to join this discord https://discord.gg/cNdb5RHBhj

If this could be added to the OP that would be super good. Hope to see you all in discord.
(This is going to be the fastest way for you to get invited to a warframe playstation goon clan because I do not check the SA forums very often.)

Golgozor posted:

I am one of the leaders of LLJK as well [...] I do still login pretty much every day even if I'm not really playing. If you join the PS4 Warframe Goons community and ask for an invite somebody will get you into one of the clans. I also fund research when new poo poo comes out unless somebody beats me to the punch, so if you're new don't sweat that (except mutagen samples for hema). I will also pass out mods if you need them and I have them. Let me know.

I want to know more.

Well, most of the rest is covered in the PC thread OP: https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3585612

Again, if it applies to the PC and console versions, post it in the main thread; if it only applies to the console version, is about trading, or you're dodging spoilers, post it here.

The usual 'I just started and I'm a bit lost' advice is as follows:
  • Finish the Vor quest,
  • Buy all of the guns you can get get with credits, especially Strun.
  • Unlock the star chart,
  • Do the story quests, especially Second Dream,
  • By this point it should be obvious that the point of Warframe is "Play it because it's fun and you need to collect all the guns."
Cool. By the way, what's 'spoiler mode?'

It's what you get for finishing the Second Dream quest (along with an upgrade from War Within that you need to do the Plains of Eidolon at night), and the community will absolutely turn on you if you spoil the reveal for new players.

Anyone know if the Dragon Mod pack Baro is currently offering on PS4 includes corrupted mods? The name makes it sounds like it might, but I don't want to drop credits and ducks on it otherwise.

Dragon just refers to the size. The wiki doesn't say what's in it, but it does say that vaults are the only source for corrupted mods.

Either way, the drop chance would be horrifyingly low. I wouldn't buy a mod pack if you're looking to get a particular mod from it.

Glad to have a console exclusive thread for all of the reasons listed in the OP.

I'm approaching the top level of one of the syndicates, and the item I need to sacrifice to reach the next level is a Nekros Prime part. I have one of those parts, but I'd rather use it towards my Nekros Prime frame, since it was hard to get. Does anyone know if my syndicate level requirements will change once Nekros Prime is vaulted in a few days?

So one of the things I wanted to find out about the console experience is what people are doing with their Rivens.

I've managed to fill up my space with Rivens i'm never going to use, and with the exception of a vulkar riven I sold for 50p, I haven't been able to shift any on trade or Maroo's bazaar, even dropping the price to 10p each.

The problem is when I try to talk about it on the main thread, all it takes is one post that doesn't specifically say PS4 and it hops straight over to discussion of the PC economy, where apparently even lovely rivens can go for a hundred plat.

So what have been your experiences with Rivens and trading? Have you sold any? What do you generally do when your inventory is full?

Fluctus makes all the difference, even if it takes a bit of trading (or a lot of grinding) to get.

But before that, I found melee much more effective than the default gun. Sure, if the enemies are grouped up in the distance Id pick off one or two, but otherwise Id just zoom around and let the melee button do the targeting for me. And the trench run missions tend to be much easier if you stick to small adjustments. The Archwing does have inertia, so its easy to veer off target even if you thought you aimed the right way. Or slam into a wall next to the opening.

I can reliably sell unveiled Rivens in trade chat quickly for roughly these prices:

Rifle: 30p
Pistol: 20p
Melee: 20p
Shotgun: 100p

I just post WTS Veiled [Rifle Riven Mod] 30p and I get takers within 2 minutes. Once I unveil them, the price either goes up if you hit the jackpot, or generally down to 10-15p for the garbage guns. Generally, the high-end prices are much lower on console, which I suspect is because we can't buy plat with coupons so people are far more afraid to part with it.

That makes sense. I've not been as low as 10 yet but I might try. Generally if I get a riven for a weapon, I try to build the weapon and see if I like it before selling it so my riven inventory has been full of annoying multi-stage build weapons like the Dual Raza and Dark Split Sword.

I did buy a Rubico riven for 100ish plat, but it was pretty insane for plains / eidolon stuff.
