Warframe S-Tier Weapons List

1. Rifle

Rifles are the most versatile kind of weapon type in Warframe, and some of the strongest too! Warframe’s rifles have some of the most overpowered and broken, which means the best weapons in the game.

rifle Warframe S-Tier Weapons List

The amount of variety they offer is insane; their trigger types can go from burst-fire to charge-fire to full auto and even single fire. They have large magazine capacities and can shred through enemies and their armors. 

Recommended Rifles: Ignis, Acceltra, Trumna and Stahlta.

2. Bow

Warframe S-Tier Weapons List bow

Bows are a niche weapon, however if you have the right bow in Warframe; it will make all the difference! You can choose to spam arrows in a semi-automatic fashion or you can simply hold the trigger and increase the damage and increase the accuracy.

The best part about the bows is that you can play stealthily when you have a bow equipped, and most bows can one shot enemies up to the 60th level perimeter. These are all-rounder weapons.

Recommended Bows: Proboscis Cernos and Kuva Bramma.

3. Shotgun

shotgun Warframe S-Tier Weapons List

Shotguns are the spearhead weapons in Warframe, you will see almost every single player run these guns while keeping guns akimbo as their secondary weapons.

They have a relatively low ammo capacity, however, their damage totally makes up for it! They’re the best weapons for crowd control when you don’t have a high ammo capacity rifle; especially with mods attached.

Shotguns can make a faster runner’s gameplay twice as more enjoyable because you can get right up in your enemies’ faces! 

Recommended Shotguns: Cedo and Kuva Kohm.

Warframe A – Tier Weapons List

1. Sniper

sniper Warframe A – Tier Weapons List

Snipers are a tough subject to talk about in Warframe, some love them to bits and some absolutely despise them. The reason why they’re like so much is the high amount of damage they churn out per shot.

However, their slow fire rate and dependency on accuracy make them a tricky weapon to use in a fast-paced shooter like Warframe. Though make no mistake, Snipers can absolutely obliterate mobs in the right hands, so if you’re confident about your aim; snipe away!

Recommended Snipers: Rubico Prime and Vectis Prime.

2. Dual Held Sidearm (Automatic)

Warframe A – Tier Weapons List Dual Held Sidearm

Dual Held Secondary automatic weapons will be the perfect choice if you’re running a shotgun as your primary weapon.

These weapons have relatively low ammo capacity, but their fire rate and quick reload time give you a tactical advantage in any situation. Make sure you’re close to your enemies though, these weapons will not serve you too well over longer distances!

Recommended Weapons: Twin Vipers Wraith and Dex Furis.

3. Dual Shotgun Sidearm (Semi-Automatic)

Dual Shotgun Sidearm Warframe A – Tier Weapons List

These weapons have decent range for shotguns, and can be fire simultaneously. They are just as good as the normal shotguns at crowd control, however the lower damage and lower range can affect it at times.

The best way to use these weapons is to push in aggressively, do enough damage and run back away! You can also shoot these, and then chip away health with melee attacks.

Recommended Weapons: Akbronco and Akbronco (Prime).

4. Launcher

Warframe A – Tier Weapons List Launcher

Launchers have MASSIVE amounts of area damage; they can take down hordes of enemies in one hit and deal a ton of damage to brutes or bigger enemies.

However, they are balanced out by the low ammo capacity, and the ability to damage yourself if you’re not careful enough. 

Recommended Launchers: Ogris and Torid.

Warframe B – Tier Weapons List

1. Spear Gun

spear gun Warframe B – Tier Weapons List

Spear Guns are a peculiar special type of weapon; they are both spears and guns that can throw fireballs at your enemies.

This is probably the coolest weapon type in the game stylistically, you can use it as a melee weapon and you can even throw it at your enemies then pick it back up. You also have the ability to use it as a gun, albeit one with very slow fire rate and not a lot of damage. 

Recommended Weapon: Javlok and Scourge. The Ferrox is a decent choice too but inferior to Javlok and Scourge.

2. Single Held Sidearm (Automatic)

Single Held Sidearm Warframe B – Tier Weapons List

Single handed automatic sidearm is not the best choice of weapon; however they do have some good uses to them.

They can be good at chipping damage off in close quarter situations if you’re using a weapon with slow fire rate. They will absolutely shred the armor off your enemies.

Recommended Weapons: Cestra and Viper.

3. Dual Shotgun Sidearm (Automatic)

Warframe B – Tier Weapons List Dual Shotgun Sidearm

The dual automatic shotgun secondary weapon is great at close range; in some situations it is even better than proper shotguns! The only issue that comes with this weapon is the low ammo count, fire rate and damage when compared to solid S-Tier shotguns.

The dual automatic shotgun secondary is even better than normal shotguns in crowd control situations, but you will have to play the hit and run game that’s for sure.

Recommended Weapons: Twin Kohmak (Only weapon of its kind).

4. Beam Sidearm

Beam Sidearm Warframe B – Tier Weapons List

These weapons were made to be accurate and to have high damage in limited ranges.

They aren’t as good as snipers with beam mods or even as good as single fire rifles. However, their damage in close ranges can be great especially if you are accurate with your shots.

Recommended Weapons: Atomos, Spectra and Nukor.

Warframe C – Tier Weapons List

1. Thrown Weapon

Warframe C – Tier Weapons List Thrown Weapon

Thrown Weapons are your usual run of the mill Shurikens type weapon.

These weapons are low damage and slow fire rate. However, they’re fun to use especially during fast gameplay and they have a unique aesthetic!

Recommended Weapons: Castanas Sancti and Hikou Prime.

2. Shotgun Pellet Sidearm

Shotgun Pellet Sidearm Warframe C – Tier Weapons List

There is only of this kind of weapon in the game, the Euphona Prime and that weapon while being good in short range crowd control is pretty much pointless in other scenarios. 

3. Single Held Sidearm (Burst)

Single Held Sidearm (Burst) Warframe C – Tier Weapons List

Single held burst sidearms aren’t the best, but they’re still better than semi-automatic single held sidearms.

If you click heads with this weapon, they can deal some massive damage but if you’re hitting literally anywhere else; it’s useless.

Recommended Weapons: Kraken and Sicarus Prime.

4. Shotgun Sidearm (Automatic)

Shotgun Sidearm (Automatic) Warframe C – Tier Weapons List

The automatic shotgun secondary weapon is stronger than the semi-automatic variant of its type because it offers less range and damage in exchange for a wider spread and faster fire rate.

This weapon type has much higher damage capacity in shorter ranges because of how fast it churns out bullets, however, steals VERY weak in comparison to actual shotguns and dual shotgun secondary weapons.

Recommended Weapons: Kohmak and Pyrana.

5. Single Held Sidearm (Semi-Automatic)

Single Held Sidearm (Semi-Automatic) Warframe C – Tier Weapons List

The semi-auto single held sidearm is the second weakest form of ranged sidearm.

These are essentially pistols that only do chip damage; however, they’re not the worst sidearms in the game so you can use them if you like.

Recommended Weapons: Vasto Prime, Marelok Vaykor and Tysis.

Warframe D – Tier Weapons List

1. Dual Held Sidearm (Charge)

Warframe D – Tier Weapons List Dual Held Sidearm (Charge)

The charge weapon in the dual sidearm category is not the way to go.

There’s only one of its kind, the Staticor. It is essentially like beam sidearms but has much less damage and a bit faster of a fire rate and ammo capacity. 

2. Single Held Sidearm (Charge)

Single Held Sidearm (Charge) Warframe D – Tier Weapons List

These are awkward weapons to describe, they perform the same as Beam Sidearms but they’re weaker with less damage but a bit more fire rate. Not really the weapon you want but can definitely use it if need be.

Recommended Weapon: Stug and Angstrum.

3. Shotgun Sidearm (Semi-Automatic)

Shotgun Sidearm (Semi-Automatic) Warframe D – Tier Weapons List

These are honestly the weakest weapon types in my opinion, and there’s only a single one instead of the dual wielded secondary shotguns so you don’t even have that added fire rate of firing from two guns.

They don’t have much to offer, and I don’t really recommend them personally!

Recommended Weapons: Bronco Prime and Detron Mara.
