Best Warframe Amps

Warframe has been one of the most anticipated games and, ever since it was launched, it has ruled the gaming market. This guide is all about Best Amps you can get in Warframe from various components like Prism, Scaffolds, Braces and More.

So without further ado let’s get started…

Amps Features

  • There is a term called “amps” which are extremely important in this exciting game and it gets unlocked after completing The Second Dream Quest, which provides you with the ability to switch between operator and warframe modes. 
  • After you initiate the Quills syndicate quest, you will receive a Mote Amp which will be the first-ever amp you get in Warframe. There have been a lot of questions about what amps are, and how it works. So, let’s just dive straight into it.

What Actually are Amps in Warframe?

If you want to enhance your combat capability and you are a tenno operator, you can use the amps. They are special modular weapons that you can acquire from the quills and vox Solaris. 

  • The amps can alter the operator’s void beams and are worn on the right forearm as a gauntlet.
  •  It also gives them a separate energy gauge from the operator’s main void energy pool and allows the operators to find their type and efficiency of energy without affecting other capabilities.
  •  You can’t modify an amp but, you can mix it with different arcane and can be useful in combat if grinded intensely. 
  • You have to farm the materials for grinding and then craft the amp. Although they are useful, they aren’t too important in the game, and also, they are significantly weaker than the other weapons.

Purpose of AMPS and how you can use it?

Sentient enemies have damage adaptations built up against them, and to break that, you need to avoid damaged weapons. Amps are the only void damage in the game and, thus to weaken such enemies, amps can be used. Enemies like shadow stalkers, conquests, battalysts are some types of creatures that have an accumulated damage adaption, and the melee weapons in the game become inefficient when it comes to defeating them. You can switch to your operator amp when needed in such situations and then go back to your original weapon.

Amps are mostly used to take down this one, deadly enemy that has created a lot of havoc. It is called the eidolon and these are beasts that are found in the plains of eidolon during the nighttime. The eidolon shard is the most powerful thing in this game and, to acquire that, you need to defeat this massive beast. They have got the special void shields, which again, won’t work with normal attacks and, thus an amp is needed.

You can create an amp only if you have been converted to a tenno operator, and then it is an easy process. The amps have 7 tiers, and each tier has one component within it. The mixing and matching of components are how you can customize your amps and form a new one. There are almost 343 combinations, and you can make any of them.

To buy the amp components from tier 1 to tier 4, you can visit Quill Onkko in Cetus and, for tier 5 to tier 7, you can visit Little duck in Fortuna. The only way to get the higher tier components is by having a higher standing, so you need to spend considerable time with either of these vendors and then try purchasing.
