Warframe Tier List Ranking Meaning:

S Tier – These are the most OP (overpowered) warframes in the game. These warframes are perfect in all game modes and can help you win games with ease. Highly recommended above all else, so you should get these frames first and upgrade them immediately.

A Tier – These are some of the best warframes for newer players, who have not yet mastered their craft. While they are not as strong as the S-tier warframes, these can still win most battles with relative ease. (If they are leveled and upgraded properly). You should prioritize these over the weaker warframes below.

B Tier –While these warframes may not have the best combat abilities, they can still be of use in battles if you have few other choices.

C Tier – The C-Tier Warframes are solid units, but they aren’t quite as powerful as the A-Tier or S-Tier warframes. They can be used to win games, but you might need to work a little harder to do so. Some stages might be harder with these frames than with the ones above.

D Tier – Here’s a list of warframes that don’t quite measure up in terms of overall usefulness. These frames have their uses, but are more niche than other warframes and don’t shine as bright in most situations. If possible you should avoid playing with these unless you don’t have anything else that’s better

F Tier – These are the warframes we think are the least effective. They aren’t very good and we don’t recommend using them.

How Did We Create This Warframe Tier List?

We think that doing a lot of research before publishing our tier lists for competitive games is a must if you want to give players an accurate depiction of the game and the current meta.

So we did the same when it came to this Warframe tier list. Since we are fans of the game and we have put hundreds of hours into it over the years, we feel like we know a thing or two about the best warframes to get in order to go through the content with ease.

Of course, personal opinion and playstyle is also an important factor, and since we are all different and unique human beings, some people might disagree with this list.

And that’s ok, after all, we’re all just trying to enjoy the game the way we like it.

So if you feel like we have maybe overlooked a warframe and ranked it higher or lower than it should have been, please leave us a comment down below and share your feedback with us (and with the other players). We’ll appreciate it!

But alongside our own personal opinions, we have also checked what other players are currently playing with and what are their choices for the top warframes to get currently. We’ve gone through places such as the official Discord server and the Warframe community on Reddit.

After we were done with our research, we put together this Warframe tier list that ranks the most effective warframes in several tiers. From the very best (S tier) to the weakest (D tier). Warframe players were asking for a tier list for a while, and now we’ve completed it just in time for TennoCon.

Warframe Beginners Guide and Tips

Warframe is a free-to-play third-person shooter developed by Digital Extremes. It’s an MMO with some RPG elements, like leveling up and customizing your character. The game has over 30 different Warframes that can be unlocked, each with its own unique powers and abilities. Here are some Warframe beginners guide tips:

  1. You can earn platinum (the premium currency) by completing missions, or by purchasing it in the store.
  2. You can use platinum to buy new weapons, Warframes, and equipment for them.
  3. Buying platinum is the only way to get some of these items without playing the game for a very long time (or paying real money).
  4. Equipment can also be upgraded using resources found during missions or bought in the market (for credits).
  5. Try to always play the game with someone else either a friend or a stranger. Playing in a squad is always better and more fun.

You can read more tips with our Warframe Beginner Guide for new players.

What is Warframe?

Warframe is a free-to-play cooperative third-person shooter video game developed by Digital Extremes for Microsoft Windows, Playstation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Xbox X, and S series.

In Warframe, players control members of the Tenno race who have awoken from centuries of cryosleep to find themselves at war with the Grineer, a race of militarized human clones built upon metal, blood, and war; the Corpus, a mega-corporation with advanced robotics and laser technology built upon profit; the Infested, disfigured victims of the Technocyte virus; and later the Sentients, an alien force of mechanical beings returning from the Tau system after being driven back centuries ago.

The player takes on the role of a Tenno, a newly awakened Tenno warrior who must master the Warframes that are the only weapons capable of standing up to these enemies. In the beginning, the player has access to four different Warframes: Excalibur, Mag, Volt, and Rhino.

Each Warframe comes equipped with unique attributes and abilities that can be improved over time as the player gains experience from completing missions.

New Warframes are released periodically via paid DLC or Fortuna’s Market — which requires real money to purchase items from it.

Warframe Gameplay

The game features fast-paced gameplay and intense battles with enemies.

The main objective of the game is to kill enemies and complete missions. Players can use different weapons and abilities to win their battles. There are multiple missions available in the game, each with its own unique challenges.

In order to complete these missions successfully, players must have good knowledge about their weapons and powers as well as their enemies’ weaknesses and strengths.

Is Warframe P2W (Pay-to-Win)?

The game is free to play but offers microtransactions. You can purchase platinum with real money which can be used to buy items in the game, including new weapons and frames.

The developers have stated they will not sell anything that affects gameplay or progression, only cosmetics.
