Warframe Best Beam Weapons

Beam Weapons are among some of the most powerful!

You ever wonder what holding a tesla cannon is like? Or even an infested version of said cannon?

As I’ve said before in my other lists, Warframe is home to hundreds of weapons and only about a thousand more combinations when you add mods.

In these categories we have the “beam” weapons. Or as I like to call them, weird-as-hell guns.

3. Synapse (Best for Aggressive Tickling)

The synapse is another one of those guns that have been around for a long long while. Some people think it’s bad, and others think it’s good. The stats, don’t lie however. This weapon is as tried and true as the game itself with its capabilities to pump out huge amounts of damage when you hold down that trigger!

2. Ignis Wraith (Best for Soul Burning)

You would be forgiven if you’ve never heard of the Ignis Wraith before while playing Warframe. Without paying attention, the Ignis Wraith looks pretty normal. The difference lies in the stats of the weapon. Every single one is a direct upgrade to the regular. The kicker? It’s only obtainable from some clans, but don’t worry. I’ll tell you another secret later on.

  • Writers note: Do keep in mind that people give away Ignis Wraiths for free. Being that it’s easy to get if you’re in a clan with access, it’s not really worth charging platinum. Remember this before you pay a large sum for this one of a kind weapon.

1. Amprex (Best for Unlimited Power)

Amprex. The king of the beams. The situations it can be used in are endless. A horde of enemies charging you? Fried. Leveling it up? Easy. Roleplaying Palpatine? Done deal. It’s held the title of best beam weapon for years, and that isn’t going to change anytime soon it looks like.
