Warframe is an online, shared-world game developed by Digital Extremes. As it features elements of MMOs, shooters, dungeon crawling looters, PvP, crafting, RPGs and more, we’ve put together a collection of guides to help new players get to grips.
With Warframe having just launched on Switch, it’s the perfect time for players to learn or get a refresher course.
Void Fissures and Primes
You will be expected to try Void Fissure missions after about 15 or so hours. It’s a requirement to unlock access to Phobos.
Over your play time, you will also collect Void Relics. These look like bronzed cabbages and are apparently referred to as such by the community and contain rare blueprints.
These are rare items that can generally only be found in this way, and are referred to as “Primes”. In terms of the lore, they are the original version of the Warframe or weapon from the Orokin era and have a slightly different aesthetic and improved base stats.
Each Void Relic contains a chance at a number of different items, each with different chances of dropping. You can increase these chances by improving a Relic using Void Traces, which are the byproduct of opening a Void Relic.
Opening the Relic requires players to enter a specific Void Fissure mission. In this mission, players will encounter corrupted enemies. These are harder to kill and feature more aggressive enemies. Some of them will drop Reactant.
Collecting 10 Reactant and completing a mission will unlock the Relic and award the player with their Prime blueprint part. Again, this is the only way to obtain Prime parts, which are among the most sought-after items in the game.
Not only because they are improved versions of the item in question, but also because they can be traded between players.
