Warframe Grineer Build Guide Damage 2.0

November 25, 2013

Updated as of 11.7.

Puncture is the best physical damage type against Grineer. The best single elemental is heat. The best elemental damage against normal Grineer is viral and against bosses, it’s radiation. See the video below for details.

Any weapon whose primary damage is either toxic or puncture is fine. I personally like the Latron, the acrid, the bolt weapons (boltor, bolto), the thrown weapons, Fang, and the dual ichor.

Mod priority:
1: Base damage
2: Multishot: Lethal Torrent, Barrel Diffusion, Split Chamber, Hell’s Chamber.
3: Viral elemental, which is equal to cold + toxic. Cold, heat, and toxin are also acceptable options.
4: Crit build: If your weapon has a large crit percent, add a crit build here.
5: Puncture – The bonus from puncture mods have been reduced dramatically from damage 1.0, so it is often not worth putting them on.
6: Corrupted damage: Heavy Caliber is worth it for some guns depending on accuracy, Vicious Spread might be depending on how many polarity slots you have, Magnum Force is not.
7: Bane mods: Bane of Corpus, Expel Corpus, etc.
8: If you still have points left, use a reload or fire rate mod.

Generally, it is better to have a few mods all the way up than more mods at low levels.

Sample Builds: (mods all the way up, unless noted otherwise)
Soma – Serration, Split chamber, point strike, vital sense, infected clip, stormbringer.
Extra Mods: Hammer Shot, Fast hands, Shred, Speed trigger, Bane of Grineer.

Supra – Serration, Split Chamber, infected clip, stormbringer, Fast Hands, Speed Trigger (rank 2).
Other mods: Shred, Bane of Grineer, Piercing hit, Heavy Caliber.

Hek – Blaze, Point Blank, Incendiary coat, Hell’s Chamber, Accelerated Blast, Charged Shell (rank 3).
Extra mods: Ammo stock, Flechette, tactical pump.
Note: This is a radiation build.

Despair – Hornet Strike (use V polarity), Lethal Torrent (Use V polarity), Barrel Diffusion, Heated Charge, Convulsion, Ice storm.

Fang Prime – Pressure Point, Fury, Focus Energy, Rending Strike, Sundering strike, Fever Strike

N00b builds
These builds don’t use potatoes and don’t use any rare mods or mods over rank 4.
Ranged: Base Damage, Elemental (heat, cold, toxin, corrosive, or radiation), fire rate or reload mods.
Melee: Fury, Pressure Point, Either: (Heat + Electric) or (Toxic + Cold).
