Trying out unowned Weapons, Warframes and Mods in Simulation

It would be great to be able to try out any warframes and weapons that we don't yet own, and test out mod configurations, being able to set our own levels for them and forma in slots, maybe even helminth an ability if you have the segment unlocked, within a simulation such as in the Simulacrum. This would allow us to test mod combinations and weapons/warframes before farming for or purchasing them, and testing different combinations against simulations of enemies. I think this would also benefit DE as it would show what certain warframes or weapons have to offer and increase desire to obtain them, while we as consumers and players would have a better idea of what we are purchasing or farming for, and plan out builds better. There are third party sites that do DPS calculations of given mod configurations, but an ingame way to test out the builds would be great.

I sorta like the fact that you need to invest in gear before you can test them. The game would be that much worse if you have a bunch of content creators running around with artificially good builds within 30 seconds of an update and then saying whether a weapon is good or not without actually acquiring the weapon, leveling it, and figuring anything out through planning.

Fair point, but it also means we have to invest in a weapon or warframe before actually testing it, and then ending up regretting it because it doesn't work at all like how we initially thought it would. Dedicated content creators likely already have a lot of resources, all they need to do is acquire the weapon blueprint and components, rush it in Foundry for platinum, do a single Ceres Gabii that can level it up from 1 to 30, with mods they already likely have, since a couple great mods work for most weapons of the same type. A couple hours at most. Content creators can afford to spend plat to speed up processes, rush in foundry, buy 30 day affinity/resource/credit boosters, or invest in gear, buy forma and the like. It's the casual players that suffer and can't afford to invest in something they would later regret, those that would benefit the most from a trying-out system for weapons and warframes, unlike well established content creators that can likely buy every warframe in a day and make a video out of it too.
