Some alternate names and name ideas, as requested.  I'll let you decide if you like them or not.


"The Propaganda Cannon" -> Brainlock, Mindcrush, Headache(?), Migraine.


"The E-G Leech"  -> maybe something related to "Hirudinea" (the animal family leeches come from), or related to blood or life.  Maybe there's a common language that the names of existing corpus weapons are drawn from.  Something related to vampires didn't seem to fit due to the technical nature of the weapon.


"Experimental Nervo Seer" -> Truesight, Stormwatcher, Oracle, Overseer.  You should also have this be an upgrade/conversion of the standard Seer. Like the blueprint uses the player's existing seer as a component.   You could also have it look more like someone had converted the original Seer into a tenno weapon.  It might look like a combination of the Lex and the seer.  Or just generally bringing out the orokin characteristics of the weapon.


"Anti-Defect Circuitry" -> Omni Upgrade/Matrix


"Advanced Acrobatic Bracers"  -> Oxium Armor Conversion, High Jump Boots (I'm kidding).  It would also make sense to have this mod cut the warframe's existing armor by some amount in exchange for additional mobility, because it doesn't make much sense that adding more material to a warframe would make it able to move quicker.  It would need to be a different kind of upgrade if you didn't want to make it reduce the armor.  Maybe it could be like jet boots or maneuvering thrusters.


"Enhanced Bio-Gas"  -> Quick Response Nanites, Triage Booster, Personal First Aid System.  Maybe this could also buff how fast you revive other players.   




oooh heres another idea, whatabout hybrid weaponry? like a tenno+infested shotgun? or corpus+grineer grenades? and so on~


edit:i accidentally the wrong place of + sign


This would make for some pretty interesting weapon ideas.
