    I appreciate Volt Now...

    Maybe I’m being misunderstood, but his kit Augments both “Gun AND Blade” as I stated. You are actually proving my point as an Augment Frame vs Raw Damage from powers only (Honestly the majority of Frames operate this way) which confuses newer to mid-level players given his description. 1. His speed AND damage buffs Melee and Primary/Secondary. Melee: -Attack Speed -Closing Speed -Passive Static Shock to 1K Shocking Speed Mod Primary/Secondary -Quicker Reload -Shield crit Chance buff and electrical damage. -one-handed action stealth reload sans animation with shock. Both: The Status effects (stuns) from his entire kit also hold enemies in place for higher accuracy across the board. As states above, your High-Powered Discharge is used only for defense and leveling and not damage at higher levels. You are kit-buffing Melee for that. Having said that, a well-tooled Valkyr Prime has much greater survivability in general if you are pushing into level 100 enemies with Melee-Centric Volt.

    Same frame. Volt FF is as versatile as his kit.

    Top 3 fashion frame as well! Have you played with the Transistor Shield Augment?

    On this I wholeheartedly agree. It’s what makes him so great. Different builds for all facets of the game. If you have some skill (sounds like you do), you CAN push his damage kit in higher level gameplay, and speed runs to finish objectives quicker with seasoned players is one of his best features in a Loot n Shoot n Loot. Well said.

    That’s why what I proposed is just one build. Hydron is a super-forgiving, super fun but repetitive Killbox that cares little for survivability/duration/enemy strength for 20 waves and if you are Power Strength speed-running with a squad they better be clan mates who know/don’t mind. At Sortie levels and above, the damage starts to compromise utility and survival and no, it won’t compete.
  6. Been proposing this for months. Make the Assimilate Augment Standard (30%) and the Augment 75% of movement speed.

    Opticor riven, conflicted

    Keep it. Puncture/Toxin crit builds with reload speed vs Corpus in Sorties. my guess? 200 now. 500-600 after Vandal. It will likely do slightly less base damage with more crit, bigger Mag size, and better reload speed/fire rate.

    Here is a build strategy I recommend, because you can build Volt to perform very different due to utility: Build him to Augment Weapon damage despite his “description”. Power Strength is the LEAST important stat despite being an Electricity Frame. You want a decent range, energy pool, duration mix first. Don’t fall in love with being able to run into walls faster than anyone else (or causing your squad to) or how much DAMAGE your powers cause. They will never compete with Gun and Blade. Play with the following, depending on how important shields/HP vs eHP is for you: Max Intensify or other Power Strength Mod Max Primed Vigor Max Vitality Max Redirection Max Primed Flow Max Quick Thinking Max Stretch Max Primed Continuity Max Constitution Max Capacitance Streamline ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ If you add up the energy demands above, you need forma in certain builds. You’ll notice I haven’t gone crazy with any Corrupted Mods above. You can do that to push range to over 200% and Power Strength below 50%. I typically go a bit more balanced, but in cases like Elite Sanctuary Onslaught, Frames like Saryns and Equinoxs etc will play off mapwide stuns and constantly regenerating Overshields if you use Capacitance.

    Mod Library Maturity (Frames AND Weapons) over the long term has a greater impact on hit kit and gameplay and when you couple this with actual skill and strategy, players often have a “Eureka!” moment with him. My only wish is that his base speed would go from 1.0 to 1.1. Been asking for 5 years...
  10. Yeah, sure. So far all I’ve heard is a smooth-jazz sounding radio freedom DJ “CRYING WOLF”. Now how about you show yourself before we as a collective group find you and put boot to chest and knock you into the Void-pit. We are in no mood for theatrics after recent events. ”THIS! IS! LUA!”
  11. Spectacular. This is the evolution of core combat that made Warframe great. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that this is dropping when it is...wink, wink. Sometimes you beat an opponent before they even know what’s happening.

    Operator age?

    Game design that saved on character model building has them fairly androgynous tbh.

    Here. It’s 8 years old, but it’ll get the bad taste outta yer mouth. Video game movie short done right.

    I’d say it’s the opposite and this is the newest angle on the “hype machine”. They are tying name recognition to their game based on PAST accomplishment to try and add perceived substance. The most distinguishing aspect is a bald girl. That’s it. The Mortal Combat Short from a few years ago destroys this thing, both in terms of “vibe” and substance and clarity of message.

    Lol. Touché. It still makes no sense and is a bunch of edgelordy, angsty, teeth-nashers doing their best to not stumble into Michael Bay territory with the subject material and script they are given.
