      HOW TO: Claim Livestream Platinum Prizes   31/03/16

      Hello fellow Tenno! Decided to make this guide after receiving multiple private messages and seeing multiple threads on how to claim plat prizes during official Warframe streams. Please remember to refer to the images in the spoilers for more information. Please Note: To be entered into a Platinum give-away on the Warframe Twitch Channel, all you have to do is log into Twitch and watch the stream. Despite what you may see in chat, there is NO requirement to post anything in chat. 
      Step 1:
      If your Twitch name is called out on a official Warframe livestream (Xbox 1 @ 1 / PS4 @ 4 / Primetime / Devstream), you will need to message the Warframe channel with your in-game alias and the platform you play on (PC, XB1, or PS4). To send a message select the "gear" icon at the bottom left, just under the stream window:
      Step 2: 
      Once you have selected the gear icon as shown above, click "message" to open up the editor:
      Step 3:
      Send a nice message to DE with your in-game alias and the platform you play on. Once you've done that click "send":
      Step 4:
      Be patient, once the message has been sent all you need to do is wait patiently and give [DE] "Ember Prime Ginga Ninja" Megan time to dish out the goods. You should have your plat within 24 hours provided there are no emergency issues at DE. If you believe you have been forgotten and it has been 3-4 plat-less days, then it might be a good idea to contact [DE]Megan on the Forums for an update on the situation since no one likes having platinum in limbo.
      Step 5: 
      Enjoy your winnings, Tenno!     [written by Community Moderator / Senior Guide NovusNova]

@[DE]Megan By existing weapon types... you mean no new type of weapons, say like a chainsaw for example?

And by grip type you mean it has to closely coincide with how we already hold the weapons available?

Also can proposed stats and stances be included?

to those asking on how to create a melee image you can just make it in MS paint or Krita a free art program, draft & design it there and the add it to your post using something like a image host, use imugr as it works easy on the forums

The best defence is a very good offence

A cool weapon Imo would be 2 shields in each hand that are worn like fist weapons

When sheated the shields could somehow collapse inward

Because the sheated form of the weapon would have to be quite small to not look stupid there could be a lore explanation like "the metal that the shields are made of are infused with a very rare and hard to extract material from the Ayatan stars (or argon crystals) that when presented to an electrical current (or a dose of radiation .fex) will make the metal alloy easy to fold" or something like that 

only now i realized how stupid this whole concept sounds but gonna post this anyway now that i wrote it xD

I'm not personally submitting anything but rather giving you guys ideas to maybe concept something in relation. If someone were to get it in game I couldn't care if I was credited or not. I'm wanting a weapon, not fame.

I've always wanted a Gun-Shield type of weapon in a game, espically after I saw Henry VIII's gunshields he had in his armory. Purely cosmetic and only one was ever fired but still amazing to look at. I made a post ages ago on this on fan concepts or something like that but it never gained much traction. Espically since I can't draw to make concept art...The bashing brutality and covering defense of a shield mixed with the range of a gun without having to get up close and personal. Although I guess some of that could describe the gunblade also.

I'm not sure how common "gunshields" are in media, animes or other such stuff but the best example I can think of off the top of my head is Umbrella from the Hyun's Dojo guys, who. like his namesake wields an umbrella type weapon that worked as both a shield and gun. I mention this last part in hopes looking it up may give you some feel for it.

So first, didnt think the image would be this big..oops well onto the description.

Name:Shishizon

weapon type:Gun blade

summary:An ornate tenno crafted gun sabre built around a ancient blundarbust type design. Built with the power of a normal sword and the power of a shotgun, this sabre utilizes the style of a rapier with elegant slashes and powerful forward thrusts causeing the gun blade to fire its pay load of shrapnel.

The Shishizon's damage is based on slash and puncture dmg instead of a normal impact, dont expect to much from this ancient gunblade though, for its design limits the time between fireing and its thrusts, but it makes up for it with its leval bladed underside.

Well, looks like more people have liked my idea, time to add more :D. a stance for this weapon i had in mind would be like vulpine mask but many of the moves would be swapped with forward thrusts for fireing and backslashes for the sword+fire combo.

Name: MK.7 Yataki 

Origin: Created by the Tenno as a prototype weapon of Galintine using its handle and a modified lighter build to make channeling less straining.

Summary: The MK.7 Yataki is a formidable quick swinging long sword with deadly channeling efficiency, it is the lighter shorter brother blade to Galintine blade with a distinct glow to guide the Tenno.

If we're talking weapon types, pretty sure most people would appreciate a lance/mace/flail and shield or any type of weapon + shield. Always love having a shield, and an actual weapon type and stances for halberds/polearms

don't take it the wrong way but i'm dissapointed because all of my weapon ideas are completely new types of weapons T-T, also even if I'm not that good in drawing my weappon idea, maybe someone can try it. I had an idea of a weapon that's able to shift between a greatsword to a scythe, The only way it made sense to me is if the scythe mode took from the melee mods of the greatsword mode but it had a scythe stance you couldn't change. to whoever continues my idea: good luck and contact me if you do ;)

It would be really cool to have a nikana and a short nikana. In the past some Samurai's have used one long and one short katana at the same time. And it fits the games concept too.
