[Top 5] Warframe Best Archwings (2021 Edition)

Warframe Best Archwings
Fly around the space with these sci-fi wings.


Running around the map and slashing enemies, again and again, can be pretty boring after some time. So, the developers of Warframe introduced us to Archwings. It’s still hacking and slashing enemies, but this time, you get to fly around the map with new abilities. Who wouldn’t like to glide around the map with an entirely new skill set? If that makes you wonder, “What could be the best Archwing that suits me?” here’s the list of the top 5 archwings in 2021.

 

5. Odonata

Your first ever archwing.

 

Odonata is the first archwing you’ll unlock as a starter. It gives you the feel of what an archwing is and how to use it. While not the best, it’s an overall balanced archwing with equally offensive and defensive capabilities. Once you get the hang of Odonata, you can grind your way to other archwings.

4. Elytron

The king of explosions.

 

Elytron is a damage-dealer type archwing composed of high damage nuking abilities. It makes up for large health and shield caps for what it lacks in speed. If you’re into offensive and explosive-action gameplay, then Elytron is the best choice for you.

Abilities:

  • Bloomer: Launches a projectile that latches onto a target and detonates after recasting the ability.
  • Core Vent: Releases a trail of smoke that neutralizes incoming enemy missiles and projectiles.
  • Thumper: Launches a beacon that is triggered when it collides with a solid object or is remotely detonated. Random explosions happen at the targeted location.
  • Warhead: Launches a guided missile that detonates on contact and creates a massive explosion.

Base stats at max level:

  • Health: 1350
  • Shield: 1350
  • Armor: 150
  • Energy: 225
  • Flight Speed: 0.9

3. Odonata Prime

A better Odonata

 

Odonata Prime is the first and the only Prime archwing in the game. It is an upgraded version of Odonata. Everything about Odonata Prime is similar to Odonata except the Prime has better health, shield, and speed cap, and of course better looks, though it all comes down to users’ preferences. Unfortunately, they discontinued Odonata Prime from reward tables on 02/28/2018.

Abilities:

  • Energy Shell: Creates a protective shell around the player that absorbs incoming damage. Grants 50% heat damage and 200% critical damage to outgoing shots.
  • Disarray: Releases flares to confuse and neutralize incoming missiles and projectiles.
  • Seeking Fire: Launches a volley of missiles that tracks enemies and deals aoe damage.
  • Repel: Emits an energy wave that deals damage enemies in range and pushes them away. Disarms and stuns affected units.

  • Health: 1200
  • Shield: 1200
  • Armor: 100
  • Energy: 180
  • Flight Speed: 1.05

2. Amesha

The healing angel.

 

Amesha is a support type archwing which is also the tankiest archwing in the game. While not the best archwing for offense, Amesha has an armor rating of 200 and supportive abilities with damage absorption and an insane amount of healing. This archwing is best suited for people who like to assist their teammates.

Abilities:

  • Watchful Swarm: Releases a swarm of drones that tank hits for the warframe and nearby allies.
  • Benevolent Decoy: Creates an energy sphere that converts absorbed damage to healing pulses.
  • Warding Grace: Creates a field around the warframe that renders it and nearby allies immune to status effect. Also slows nearby enemies.
  • Vengeful Rush: Converts damage taken to energy and provides buffs to abilities and warframe. This ability affects nearby allies too.

Base stats at max level:

  • Health: 1200
  • Shield: 600

1.Itzal

The stealth archwing.

 

Itzal is a mobile support-type archwing that can manipulate its surrounding like no other archwing can. With abilities that include creating vacuums that suck everything into it to making warframes invisible, Itzal is the most versatile archwing you can get. It also happens to be the fastest archwing in the game.

Abilities:

  • Arch Line: Throws a grappling hook that can either pull enemies it latches into or pull the warframe towards the location of the hook.
  • Penumbra: Creates a field that renders invisibility to any nearby allies for as long as they are stationary.
  • Cosmic Crush: Creates vacuum that pulls all the enemies and pickups in before it explodes to deal blast damage.
  • Fighter Escort: Summons drones that assist the player in battle. Drones deal continuous electrical damage and explode if it is destroyed or the duration runs out.

Base stats at max level:

  • Health: 600
  • Shield: 600
  • Armor: 50
  • Energy: 360
  • Flight Speed: 1.2
