CHOOSING YOUR WARFRAME
At the end of the in-game Warframe tutorial, you will be instructed to select one of three Warframes. Your Warframe functions as a kind of exo-armor suit that protects you from enemies and provides you with unique powers. The Warframe you choose will greatly impact your first missions, so choose wisely! Not to worry, this selection is not final. In time you will be able to construct or purchase additional Warframes to master!
Excalibur is a Warframe with a balanced set of powers. Use Slash Dash to violently lead the charge into battle and follow up with Radial Blind to stun any survivors.Super Jump can be used to quickly cover ground and scout ahead of your squad. When executed, Radial Javelin will skewer any enemies foolish enough to be in the deadly range of an Excalibur Warframe.
Loki initially appears to lack offensive capabilities, but creative use of his powers can decisively turn the tide of any battle. Loki’s Decoy power confuses enemies and distracts them with a holographic image, leaving you in the perfect attack position. Invisibility allows Loki to vanish from sight, opening up the possibility of any ambush you can think of. Switch Teleport enables you to switch places with a targeted team mate or enemy, allowing you to manipulate your position in battle. Finally, Radial Disarm will cause enemy weapons to malfunction, turning a near defeat into a victory in the blink of an eye.
With full command of surrounding magnetic energy, Mag is an expert at energy manipulation. Use Pull to drag enemies out of cover, or allies to safety. Shield Polarize can drain an enemies shields, softening them up for an assault, or it can replenish the shields of your friends when they need help. Hitting an enemy withBullet Attractor will make any nearby bullets home in on the target; even those fired by other enemies! Mag's ultimate ability lives up to its name: Crush will lift nearby enemies into the air and deal massive damage as they're crushed by gravitational forces.
These robust Warframes will serve you well during your exploits and are capable of completing any mission. Remember you can still choose other Warframes to test out other play-styles and experiment with new powers.
