Who will conquer the Steel path meta?

Recommended Posts

Who and what weapon will conquer the steel path meta?

Frames:

For now im thinking scaling or nuke frames could still be used to cheese the hard mode
Saryn : Scaling damage and high aoe Nuke
Octavia/Vauban: For those scaling damage skills, and vauban for CC
Nidus: Well he's Nidus

Nova:Great CC and damage buff
Mesa:Could be useful but maybe capped at 200-300 enemies?



And those frame with insane survivability capabilities:
Revenant: Mesmer skin is too good
Wisp: Provide team buff
Trinity: Has great survival capabilities
Rhino: Possible with a great build, and huge enemy crowds
Hildryn/Ember/Wukong/Gara: Could possibily work well?
Inaros:Can be a good option, but it is very weapon dependant and doesnt provide much for the team


Invisibility frame:
Ash / Loki / Ivara : Invisibility frame are more build dependant, but im opting for Ash more due to his armor stripping capabilities

Utility/Support frame:

Oberon- For its 30m healing radius, good for supporting damage dealers
Titania- I think frame that can provide team buffs could be useful

Augmented: Claw frenzy Valkyr/ One punch Atlas/ Kung fu Baruuk
Maybe its their time to shine?

Im thinking people might even start using banshee ?


Weapons:

Primary: Its hard to give a say on this, probably people will use more high damage single target weapons?
Or generally bleed weapons/ viral hunter munition build becos they work well on high armor targets
     Sniper:Rubico Prime / Komorex
     Shotgun: Tigris Prime/ Sancti Tigris / Kohm variants / Vaykor hek
     AOE weapons : Most aoe weapons
     Most bullet hose weapons with Hunter munition build

Secondary: Gaze/Tombfinger/Pyrana Prime/ Stat stick secondary/ Kuva nukor/ Kuva Seer etc.


Melee: I think any decent melee well built will work well since melee is king
     




But anyways i believe most teams will have saryn prime to cheese the mode, and boost her survivability with wisp, what do u think is gonna be meta in this mode?

IMO it will probably end up with Saryn, Mesa, Nova/Frost and probably Trinity

Might get some variation here and there but I suspect they'll be the ones used in most cases.

Weapons... mesa lol

Saryn and mesa weren't really all that great when I tried them out, and ocativa's mallet is kinda meh since the blast damage changes. Vauban and Hildryn were definitely chadding it up though.

Don't forget Oberon, he can heal himself and others, is kinda tanky, and can also strip armor.

Banshee.

Why? Biggest complaint i've heard was bullet sponges. Banshee negates that and allows a broader weapon selection. Regarding survivability people would have to play the hardest tanks or simply be more careful, use CC, shield gating and parkour to survive. In high levels like these, Banshee won't be much squishier than say a Saryn, Khora or Nova.

Also Oberon can spam heal defense obj. instead of being limited to that 100/s like Vazarin and co.

Saryn has no way to defend herself. Without a squad, she'll die.

I will likely just play Rhino. A Rhino, with Naramon school and a melee, can easily solo lvl500 enemies or higher on his own with literally no effort. Then if you add an Arcane Guardian and a Arcane Strike or Fury, it's just cheese at that point.

Nah, I like the "set and forget" of Guardian better. Who wants to worry about having to do finishers? I just hold/spam E (my melee button) with my Dakra Prime and watch lvl170 Gunners get 1 shotted. 

I probably won't even bring a primary or secondary into hard mode. What's the point?

Built an umbral wisp, wish can sustain myself in steel path, as it is too simple in normal mode.

CC warframes.

From what I've seen, Saryn and Mesa are ineffective choices because of the high armor. Saryn needs very high strength, Mesa needs to be in max focus in order to kill reliably.

I see warframes like Vauban, Grendel, Titania, Trinity, Inaros, Ivara, Loki, Ash and other CC/support oriented warframes to be in the spotlight over DPS oriented warframes.

Listed him under utility support! Could be good in some lineups

Yes saryn has low survivabity, but with the help of wisp , and maybe some defensive frame, she can just stay at one spot and deal dmg with her scaling spores

Chroma for bosses, Khora, Octavia, Nova, Rhino, Inaros, Wisp. Maybe Ivara for spy.

Weapon-wise: scythes, kronen prime, redeemer prime, kuva nukor, I saw phage performing well too.

I agree with u , but if saryn can sustain without dying, her spore will keep building up dps until the enemies die


 

As for mesa even with a very good build, it can falloff pretty quickly 

 

 

I also think that this is the time for utility/ cc frame to shine
