Best mods for weapons?
Yeah, topic says everything

For me (I think I didnt discover most of mods) its stacking armor penetration + critic damage, especially in melee fight (for lucky players it would be also mod with electrical dmg etc.)

What are your opinions? What about guns?

Alot of these discussions with guns and mods can get really complicated so lets see if i can help..

There are only 3 differnt gun styles
Shotgun (Close distance)
Rifle (Close to Medium distance)
Sniper (Medium to far distance)

For most warframes they would use the rifle selection and most likley the mk1_braton that is considerd one of the best to use.

However to use Shotgun or Sniper style its depends on the warframe and personal preferance.
So when you are looking at your warframe read there abilites, strong, and weak points.
If they are good at close range go shotguns, if they dont like to take alot of damage, go sniper or rifles, and for overall warframe you can go rifle with no problems.

People ask alot about the Paris Bow, that is completly preferance however it its on the sniper side of weapons but it is silent. All weapon selections are really just preferance but some decisions can be made wisely to what you want...

As to mods,
Basically the same as selecting a gun for a frame.

What are the guns strongs points and weak points and according to this things adjust your mods. Mods are self explanitory they tell you what they do and each gun tells you what they do so it shouldnt be to hard to figure out what you need.

The same goes for swords, adjust mods accordingly and chose weapons accordingly to frame and personal preferance.


Now you might be asking what the hell is the fusion process...
Fusion is the way to upgrade your mods to be more powerful and effective. You can either do fusion with Fustion Mods or other card.

The level of the card is highlighted by white squares on the left side and the amount of lvls is in black. Im not going to go to much in that becuz you can google fusion and it will explain everything but trust me you want to do fusion.

Hope that helps :)

Yep, it helps, I know what is fusion and I think I did my best to get 100% of my power per level as Excalibur. For me its HP & Shield buff + 4 abilities, 75% more "mana" and 15% shield regen (i ve to boost it up with next levels I think). For me its for "tanky" purpose and slash everything like a boss ;)

But I want to make this topic as discuss between select electric or frost dmg with sword, even if you have your own playstyle, there should be something whats worth to know ;) Maybe some ppl are boosting shields rather than Health and its more effective? I dont know, maybe some1 checked both styles and can say whats better?

Ah, btw. do weapons always ve 1 unique slot for mod? (I mean that icon at top right corner)

Yes I think each weapon has a "Polarity" some might have 2.
Ok i see what your doing but i would stay certain frames would use certain melee and weapons mods like volt=electric, Frost=frost= ember=heat. So they can have better advantages with frames and also ive noticed frost, electric, heat, etc. effect differnt factions so that is another thing to keep in mind.

The "best" mods for weapons/warframe will change depending on what you're fighting. Vitality is almost mandatory for fighting infected, but for everything else you can let it slip as long as you're boosting shields/shield recovery.

When it comes to weapons, again, the "best" is based on the enemy. Armor Piercing, Lightning damage, Frost Damage, Raw Damage, Fire Rate, Multishot, Magazine Size, Ammo Size, and Reload Speed are all viable against Corpus, while Crit Rate, Crit Chance, Puncture, Stun, and Fire Damage not so much.

apen against grineer, elec against corpus and fire against infected, frost for the slow is always nice

if u weap has high base dmg get dmg mods
multishot good in general at high lvls
charge speed and dmg on heavy weaps and furax
attack speed and crit on fast melee weaps like the fangs or dual zorens
freeze good on bolt weaps for easy aiming
