The only reply i can give is to each their own, people swear by the frame they really like. I liked Volt when i started, it's great against Corpus. Totally sucks powerwise against infested, ATM i am running with a Banshee.
Which i like, she is a good allround frame..

You either need to buy him with platinum or buy his blueprint and collect the materials needed to build the chassis, systems, and helmet.

You need to drop chassis, systems and helmet (blueprints) on venus's boss. Dont forget to buy the rhino's blueprint on shop

I think, Nyx and Rhino stand above the two others.
However all warframes are enjoyable to play.

I got Nyx to 30. Nyx is really good for soloing. The mind control and confuse abilities help with that. If you run into a single tough enemy, just MC them and they are your pet for a while. You can gun them down on the spot or use them for a bit in battle. You can even use MC on bosses, but it only stuns them for a few seconds (still very useful). But I feel like in multiplayer games it would be better to have more damaging abilities. Nyx's special helmet kind of sucks too because it reduces your shields. I'm trying Rhino next.

Rhino got nerfed recently... so... not so much (my favourite frame before that).

i have banshee nyx and rhino all maxed as i can see it banshee got soundquake nerfed so you now take damage while your (casting) considersing you kneel for a good 4-6 seconds that can kill you if your not carefull

rhinos armor skill has been nerfed and no longer has the time for it to be usefull for anything more than a quick getaway even with mods to increase it

nyx however had chaos nerfed and you know what IT DIDNT DO A BLOODY THING its still overpowered to hell add mods its worse find a infestation defence map and happy farming :)

all in all tho it realy is how you like to play take your time a read wiki about each warframe

Its all about your play style. I chose banshee because I can make use of all her skills except silence. Even with the nerf on sound quake, the skill still stagger enemy within 30m and do decent damage. Sonic boom is great for controlling mob, pushing enemy can sometime be fun. Sonar is such a great skill because you can do 4x the damage on the target weakspot. You can even go up to 5x the damage with max focus mod.

Nyx is very good at crowd control - in higher level defense missions like Xini (on Eris), it'll be pretty hard to advance into higher waves without Nyx's "Chaos" ability. Basically you make the mobs fight themselves while you can start killing them without worry.

Banshee is a also a great crowd control frame, but in a different way. Sonic boom kills some weak enemies and knocks back the stronger ones. Her Sound Quake is pretty simple to grasp - press 4 and (almost) everything dies. In boss fights and high-wave defense, her Sonar is extremely useful as it creates glowing spots on enemies, which when shot at, deal 500% more damage.

Volt is a bit... situational in my opinion, he excels against Corpus, decent against Grineer and a bit weak against Infested ( Infested are more or less resistant to electricity). Nonetheless he's a fun warframe to play.

Rhino is was my personal favourite, but since his Iron Skin has been nerfed to oblivion, he's rather bad at tanking now. But he still has very high base shields and health which scale better with Redirection and Vitality (+shield and +hp mods respectively).

So Nyx and Banshee are about tied, followed by Volt and then Rhino.

I'm a big fan of Loki and I was thinking about moving on to Nyx- would you say their play styles are more similar or unique?
AureasAetas Jun 8, 2013 @ 9:41am 
everything but similar

Rhino is too slow for me.

Haven't tried Nyx or Volt, but Volt is, oddly enough, ready to be built.

Banshee is fun as hell. If you're wise with her, you can use her without the use of Redirection, Vitality, or Steel Fiber. Just have maxed out Focus, Stretch, and maybe Continuity and you're good to wreck someone's day, even without an Orokin Reactor. Just have Sonic Boom and Sound Quake as your active abilities.
