Now that I'm back however, I've recently been getting back into Warframe - a third person cooperative online shooter (which apparently has a PvP mode, which wasn't there 2 years ago...) that involves the players as the Tenno - an ancient group of warriors that at one point were led by the Orokin before they vanished. Across a variety of mission types (from the simple Exterminate to Rescue missions to boss battles in Assassination) and with a huge variety of weaponry (48 primary weapons alone across various categories, not including retired or event weapons - some of which can be traded for) one fights the Grineer, Corpus, Infested, and other enemies both in the freeform missions, quests, or the brand new Trial. Every frame available has unique abilities too (Not that I have them all - I've seen many, not all however), such as Mag using magnetic forces to defeat enemies, Trinity being a healer/tank/energy supplier for the team, Nova (my personal favourite right now) using antimatter to both inflict damage and debuff enemies, Ember controlling the forces of fire, Frost being a powerful defensive caster with ice, Banshee using the power of sound, and - the newest frame - Equinox shifting between Day and Night to gain a variety of powers (Day being more offensive, Night having various defensive powers) as being a small sample of the frames in game. Weapon wise, divided across Primary, Secondary, and Melee, you have a huge amount of choices, from the standard (Braton automatic AR line, the Grineer Karak rifle, and the Burston 3-round-burst rifle) to the less so (including the Quanta mining laser, Miter sawblade launcher, and the various bows) primaries, a variety of secondaries (from traditional semiautomatics and revolvers to automatic shotguns, thrown electrical traps, to a pair of enhanced energy miniguns), and a large number of melee - and stance - options (including scythes, longswords, a shotgun-sword that is magically silent, boomerangs that can explode in mid-air while still being silent and returning to you, and more) to select from. Some weapons also have harder to acquire Prime variants, such as the Braton Prime or Burston Prime, which are upgraded versions of the standard weapon.Although there is a significant amount of grinding involved to get some of the items, if you get the Steam version and join the group, feel free to message me using the group and I can help cut that pretty significantly, though it's also on the PS4 and Xbox (where I really can't help, sorry!) for those inclined to try it there.If you decide to try it on the Steam version, join the 1MS group and message me, I can send you a referral code that'll double your Affinity (XP) gain for a week!
riend of mine used to play this, but it looks grindy as

Now, with a proper group that can accelerate that grind a lot by knowing exactly how, and due to my sometimes stupid generosity in trading to get my friends some of the parts they need for Prime weaponry, you can greatly cut down on it. I've played it a lot (well, not as much /right now/ as I have so many other things I'm trying to play ><) and now know pretty much the best way to get any resource... aside from Argon Crystals, which follow the logic of "If you want it, you will not get it."
Anyone still playing Warframe? It's come a long way since the release. Devs really improved it over the years.
Still play it on and off again, at least one person in the Steam group aside from myself does so too a lot more frequently than me,
Can't say I'm that great at it, but I'm not that bad at it either ;
Edit: Forgot to add, yeah, they've really made it better since 2013... and yet I'm still using the same frame basically. Some things never change. ;
