Best Stealth Warframe?
Hellow gentleman, I am a newbie. I started with Loki because I liked his overall role and so far so good. But I really like playing stealth, and so now that I discovered more warframes I dont know which is best.

So I have a set of questions I need help with:
1 - What is the best stealth warframe? Like, Ash or Banshee? Why?
2 - What stealth build would you recommend for each?

Last but not least, is there a mod or an ability for me or my sentries that allows me to see the enemy's position in the map?

Thanks in advance

Loki is the best at stealth (I say that as, he literally can go invisible), while Ash is a "ninja" he does not have any stealth abilities really aside from teleporting and his shuriken is supposedly silent. Banshee I have no info on as I never have used it. However if you get a Shade sentinel you can get the mod "Ghost" to allow you to go invisible when near enemies (very helpful actually)

By stealth build I assume you mean weapons. My load out was Paris, dual vipers (for the screw it, been seen) and dual heat blades on my Ash along side with Shade sentinel.

As for seeing enemy positions you can do an alert to gain an artifact to allow you see enemies on the map, I think someone said something about a mod as well but I'm not 100% on that.

Well, Ash has smoke screen that makes him invisible as well, plus costs lets energy too. To be honest, Stealth abilities are not that important, you have a sentinel "Shade" that does tat for you.

I am considering banshee because of her "Silent" skill (removes noise from all weapons) and because she has an ability that show all enemy units in map (their positiions, which is REALLY USEFULL) as well as their weak spots (good for 1 shot kills using Paris or other snipers).

For seeing enemies on the minimap, there is an artifact called enemy radar or you could equip a mod called enemy sense
I think Ash is pretty nice for stealth gameplay, but mostly it depends from what equipment you have. I think best are Paris (bow), kunai (throwing knives, pretty OP), and Glaive (throwable melee weapon) and finally Shade. Thats my opinion. Also weapons dropped by Stalker will be cool to have for Ash.

Loki and Ash are the best for that.

I thought the Kunai didn't work for stealth right now? I mean, they're still great weapons, but here's a video from the wiki.

Thanks for the Info, going to build me a loki now.

Where can I get "Enemy Radar" or "Enemy Sense" ? Does Shade have any ability to help with that?

Also, what would you recommend for Loki Stealth? I have:
- Paris (main weapon)
- Cronus (sword)
- Lato (pistol)

And ofc, Shade.

Any warframe can be played with stealth. As long as you have right equipment for it.

Me and one of my irl friend has played with Rhino and Saryn with stealth, and it went pretty good. Till one enemy got spooked by a corpse and and saw us.

Most important is to play stealth IN THE RIGHT WAY. Meaning being awfully carefull. Sometimes you can shoot enemies without being seen my others, and sometimes you can not. Sometimes you can nail enemies to the wall when other enemies are around, even walking almsot hand to hand. And sometimes you can not. Stealth is not really that expanded on. Yet. I think they work on it and will add it later on.

The bow PARIS/DREAD is is a must, and the melee weapon GLAIVE as well. It can also be thrown. However as a pure melee weapon it kinda sucks, but when you throw it (and add charge dmg mod) you can one shot enemies. All daggers/swords can be used for stealth kills.

2nd weapon... Well, there is no 2nd weapon. The throwing daggers KUNAI is supposed to be silent, but they are not. At least not yet I think. I have used them a few times, and enemies has sometimes coming rushing from other rooms far away when I have used them. I guess it's random when they are silent and not.
Loki is clearly the best frame one for pure stealth play.

And the last thing you need is the Sentinel SHADE. Give him the mod GHOST and voila!

Well thanks, that was really helpful !!
Btw, I know I am repeating myself but, where can I get "Enemy Radar" or "Enemy Sense" ? xD

I got a question i just started and picked loki as my first warframe , is there a benifit to going unseen and "stealhed" the whole map or is it a waste of time ..

While on stealth mode you have benefits such as:
- Your attacks deal more damage
- Your enemies become un-alerted to your presence
- Your enemies cannot see you and attack you

This said, if you pass an entire map without killing anything, or getting the drops, I'd say you wont win much XP not Coins. Is it worth it? Well, it's certainly faster, but I will leave that decision to you.

At the moment their is no benefit (XP, Credit wise) to going full stealth, just the fun of it. As for the enemy radar all I can say is just watch this link or keep it in your tabs when your not on the game. http://www.kingtaro.com/warframe/
It will ding when a new alert pops up and what the reward is and where it is at. Upside is if you can't reach the alert, perhaps a friend or clan member can and they can bring you in.

Enemy radar is a random reward for doing an random alert. Enemy sense (I think) its a random mod drop. Getting stuff in warframe is more or less based on luck. But getting rewards for doing random alerts is very high so sooner or later you will get them all. There is few threads at warframe forum with ppl posting different threads about warframe apps they hade created. Like twitter apps and such. They help alot :)
