Open Call for Warframe Theme Ideas!

Recommended Posts

An infested-themed warframe, partially mutated by the infestation with the ability to mold and transform the frame into different types of infested creatures. Perhaps add different augments which change the form the frame transforms into and choose between being tanky/mobile or offensive.

Probably the weirdest theme possible:

"Luck/Fortune" based Warframe, which would grant bonuses to allies as well as put out CC and damage with random elements. This could be through the use of cards or dice.

A heavy armor themed frame? I'd imagine in the old war the Sentients had some big mamajama's (either in actual bulk or in just raw threat level) that would need the use of some real heavy firepower.

It could be an Exalted frame where it anchors down and just starts letting loose with a large number of guns (think asura's wrath's shooting segments), or maybe just to fire one really huge one once that'd make Vaubans Ion cannon blush.

I would love to see an warframe that actually got capture/controlled by the orokin in the old war.

You know the golden antenna thingy attached on grineer head? Yes, that kind of control. Oh yeah, so this frame starts with prime design.

Soaking in void energy for too long, whatever his original abilities are now gone. As his original tenno was not put into sleep like player, maybe their void energy got even stronger?

Abilities themes can play around void, a pure enegy warframe.

Then his prime version can be the pre-old war original frame that wasn't controlled by orokin, no shiny parts, but with his original abilities.

Okay throwing my hat in the ring here (and I apologize if this was already posted, but as of right now, 152 page is a lot to go through) how about (keeping in line with Wukong and Nezha) a Kyubi Warframe (and no not as in Naruto, I mean the legit legend) that can use abilities such as ethereal/spiritual fire, shape-shifting (an interesting idea for stealth), and possibly switching to a bestial form or heck even other aspects based on the slyness/wit associated with foxes in general.

A God of War/berserk warframe that a look similar to a six arm hindu God. The arms would be used a for different abilities regarding cc, damage output, takiness etc. Which would revolve around an 'adrenaline' meter that would increase as the frame receives more damage and gives a slight armor bonus. 

The passive could be something along the lines of receiving an 100% evasion when low on health. The amount of javelin thrown would scale with either duration or efficiency with a hard cap at probably ~20 or less javelins

The first ability be a series of homing javelin that would deal a given damage and drain the opponents health which would heal the frame. 

The second would be that all of the frames arm manifest and the frame lunges towards its target strips armor or shields at a given percent and depending on the enemy. Then the frame would fling the enemy dealing damage that can scale based power strength that also increases the percent of armor/shield gained. 

The third would be a series of of modes or stances that you could cycle through. Similar to chroma's color change or equinox's metamorphosis. 

And finally the frame would go on a rampage and gain health for every enemy killed. Until its adrenaline meter depletes. 

Edit: he would have a long waistcloth that would be in the style of a trench coat with segments of armor. As you'd go up the body you see various scars scattered across the abdomen and back. The back would look like a spine and rib cage extending through the abdomen and segments connecting to a series of 4 protrusions were the other 4 arms manifest as void projections that have parts of metal in the joints and for arms. Then the helm would like some kind of horned beast like demon esc type. Finally the arms and legs would have a series of rings attached to forearms and calves as in the fashion of piercings.

A frame without exterior skin. Made of muscles and tendons .Extremely nimble. Can detach body parts and regrow them at will.

Ditto - A warframe that can mimic other warframe abilities ... maybe with shorter duration/range/strength than the original warframe

eg look at volt team mate, press 1 and you now have the shock ability and you can use is throughout the rest of the mission. The shock damage will be 100 instead of 200 (volt's maximum)

look at rhino, press 2 and now you have iron skin but half the value that rhino player has.

basically, the initial idea was to have some sort of modular warframes from different warframe parts which grants you the different abilities but this one is more of a hijack team mate abilities

as for the powers when there are 4 ditto in a squad, i'll leave that to the community and devs to figure out

This is PANZER (can be whichever gender):

Passive ability: Any weapon that Panzer equips becomes One-Handed. ("When Panzer runs out of shield he can use his health to cast his abilities with 50% efficiency" I dont know if this is needed, maybe too OP)

First ability (costs x flat amount of shield):

Panzer slams the ground with his Great-Shield in front (similar to nidus but has no travel) causing an AOE dealing "x amount of damage".

-Damage type depends on his current weapont equiped [Primary weapon > Impact damage], [Secondary weapon >  Puncture damage], [Melee weapon > Slash Damage] (ability guarantees status proc)

-Damage is (insert damage), depends on power strength.

-Range is 15x2m, depends on power range (could only affect length, or also width).

-Ability cost depends on efficiency

BONUS: With Great-Shield active, adds side AOE to the ability (in a cross pattern).

-Range becomes 15x2m in front and 5x2m to the sides, depends on power range (could only affect length, or also width).

Ability explanation: This is the simple and basic ability, due to damage type depending on weapon equiped incentivise the player to be changing between his weapons. Adding slash damage for melee might make it endgame-worth. (Suggestion: add an passive where, for each weapon equiped the ability gains damage, in order to incentivise even more the use of multiple weapons).

Second ability (costs x percentage of current shield):

Panzer plants in the ground a beacon which grants to him and his allies several buffs, Shield regeneration/second.

-Total shield regenerated, is a percentage of Panzer's max shield (Shield regen is then calculated with ability duration), depends on power strength.

-Duration of the ability is 20s, depends on power duration.

-Range is 10m, depends on power range.

-Ability cost depends on efficiency

BONUS: With Great-Shield active, beacon also grants holster speed

-Holster speed is a flat 100% bonus.

Ability explanation: This is the main way for Panzer to gain back his shields. The hasle will be balancing the ratios for shield cost and regen, it will need lots of testing. 

Third ability (costs x percentage of max shield):

Passive, Panzer acumulates the last 15s of damage recived in a meter.

Active, Panzer prepares for dashing emitting an AOE weave of magnetic damage and emittis another AOE weave of radiation damage on landing.

-Damage recived acumulaton frame is flat 15s.

-Dashing range is 10m, can be recasted to finish dash early, depends on power range.

-AOE radius is 12m, depends on power range.

-AOE damage is 20% of damage recived meter, for each instance of the ability.

-Ability cost depends on efficiency.

BONUS: With Great-Shield active, the ability becomes castable on allies (Panzer will dash towards the ally instead), upon landing creates a cilindric energy shield (shape similar to Gara's 4) which stops enemy incoming bullets and adds magnetic damage and status chance to ally bullets that passes through the shield.

-Dashing range towards allies is 20m, depends on power range.

-Shield health is 50% of damage recived meter.

-Shield health type is the same as the Tenno's.

-Shield lasts unltil health depleated or after a new shield is created.

-Damage bonus 100%, depends on power strength.

-Status chance bonus flat 150%.

Ability explanation: A way to give Panzer some dynamic damage and boost ally damage output with the new status chance chages. The mechanics will make more sense with the last ability.

Forth ability (costs x percentage of current shield on cast, and drains x percentage of max shields/second while blocking):

On cast, Panzer loads his Great-Shield granting bonuses to his other abilities. While Great-Shield is active Pancer is inmune to knockdowns and staggers. Upon blocking Panzer gains damage reduction and attracts all enemy damage in an radius, reduces his movement speed and FOV and he can still shoot any of his weapons but can't ADS. While using melee the shield will retract but not uncast so Panzer can use melees normaly. Blocking with melee for more than 0.5s will bring up the Great-Shield and the last weapon used.

-Damage reduction 50% up to 90%, depends on power strength. Damage acumulated on 3rd ability isn't affected by this damage reduction.

-Damage attraction range 8m, depends on power range.

-Movement speed decrease flat 50%.

-Ability cost depends on efficiency.

Ability explanation: It's Panzer's singnature ability, and synergizes with his third ability. 

 

Authors comentary:

The Idea of a shield (physical shield) based frame was something I always thought about while playing warframe. Whithin characters pools of games like League of legends, Overwatch, R6... there is always an shielded hero, Leona, Reinheart, Monty... so I designed this frame to fit the roll of the shielded guardian of Warframe.

I was going to base my warframe in health and armor but I think this shield based version might be more original and fun. And a great partner for Hyldrin as the second warframe with abilities based on shields.

Panzer si a frame based on objective defense, damage mitigation and ally support, but can also deal tons of damage! 😄

The play-style of this frame can be simple and fun, or you can optimize every aspect of him to be extremely efficient, my objective is to incentivise coop play, active gameplay, and whise loadout choices, swaping between weapons to be as effcicient as posible.

 

PS: English is not my mother toungue, so writeing this took me a long while, sorry for any gamatical errors :c

I am Bad at Drawing so let me tell, just this concept i have been thinking about..

No idea about his name too, maybe like Fatgum or something.

How about a frame that shrinks or gets large in size based on the damage it dealt or damage dealt to it.

What i am trying to say is, it starts out as a regular frame with regular size who has 4 skills like rest, but there will be a meter that fills up, his/her damage taken and damage received.

once one of those 2 bars reaches full, if he/she had more damage taken, his/her size becomes large and all enemies aggro on him/her, in this state he/her gains new 3 skills and also a big armour boost,has one skill that grants him/her immunity and protects the team, rest 2 skills you decide, surprise me.

same goes for when he/she does more damage too, his/her size shrinks, and he/she is able to evade most enemy attacks, n has Aoe attacks, in this form too he/she gains new 3 skills..

well i came up with this idea because there is not size shrinking frames in warframe, this would create more diversity.

Ok so, my theme is inspired in Ruby Heart from MvC2 and the flying dutchman from spongebob

 

Ghostly Pirate warframe, that can summon his ship to cannon barrage the field,

also can call his ghost crew to aid him in fights

and use spectral weapons: pistols, cutlass and maybe chains/anchor

all about being spooky ghost pirate captain.

A cyber frame (magnetic) that can overload enemies causing debuffs (like jamming weapons, slow, and shield stripping) and overcharge allies (and self) increasing weapon damage (via adding magnetic), fire-rate, and/or status chance. Maybe an ability to grab, hold, and throw enemies, plucking them out, using them as a meat shield for a bit, then turning your unfortunate victim/s into a missile/s. An idea for a passive would be the ability to hack consoles to drain energy from them, once per console, but not all levels have consoles so this may not work..

You know how the Grineer were once Orokin? What if we had them try and construct a Warframe for their liches to use! They would probably have some sort of adaptiveness to their abilities and then they would probably be more tech based like an iron man Warframe or maybe they could scan the DNA/programming of their enemies allowing them to steal some of their powers? Not entirely sure on the abilities but I think it could make a pretty cool foundation.

Theme: Chaos/Entropy

A warframe born from the roiling, colliding forces of nature, an essence of chaotic energy. With a jittery gait, the warframe pick up enemies with the whisper of a thought, flinging them against each other. Objects and bodies (living and dead) circling around the figure mid-air, absorbing bullets, as if an invisible hand had picked them up for a macabre dance.

This warframe is unpredictable; primal, like a vicious beast. Yet still not an animal. It doesn't hunt, feed, or play.
It is a force of nature, but doesn't belong to any element. This frame is the force contained in a howling meteor, crashing into a moon. It is the wings ripping up trees and walls during apocalyptic hurricanes. It is the cracking ground racing across the surface, born from the mightiest of earthquakes.

This warframe is entropy incarnate.

Void (Name up for debate): A Space-themed Warframe

Abilities are directly related to the manipulation of space, be it from the usage of planar space or the plasma/void energy within space.

  • Dislocate - Shifting the space around it can relocate enemies and/or allies to its advantage
  • Channel - Drawing directly from above atmosphere or from local space around it, it charges itself with energy to create a planar armor of sorts, eating bullets or providing a hard, invisible wall against fire
  • Channeled Release - Expels this energy in offensive manners, harnessing beams of raw void/plasma energy
  • Shatter - Breaking the very plane of space around it, causing vacuums and void leaks, drawing the enemy in and amping its own power

This is definitely open for debate, but thats what I've got.

That just sounds like Mag with Gauss' Kinetic Plating and Wisp's Sol Gate
