[Top 5] Warframe Best Gunblade That Are Powerful

The best Gunblades.
If two guns are not enough, you can always get a third gun.

What else could be more innovative than a melee weapon combined with a powerful gun? These uniquely designed weapons are made for blasting, for every time you’re not slashing something. It turns out that Gunblades are also among the strongest weapon categories in the game.

Here are the top 5 best Gunblades in warframe:


5. Redeemer

Not a big deal, but still looks cool.

Redeemer is a gunblade that you’ll probably unlock the earliest in-game. It’s an entry-level weapon that gives you an idea of what a Gunblade really is. It’s not that great compared to the others, but you can’t really complain for an early game weapon.  It is equipped with a shotgun that deals heavy close-range damage.

  • It mainly deals slash damage, which is good against health.
  • It can fire a shotgun blast that deals up to 300 blast damage.
  • It has a good status chance.

Normal Attack Stats:

  • Damage: 180
  • Attack Speed: 0.833
  • Status chance: 22%
  • Crit chance/multiplier: 10%, 1.8x

Secondary Attack Stats:

  • Damage: 300
  • Charge time: 0.4s
  • Range: 300m
  • Attack Speed: 2.5


Blueprint for the Redeemer can be purchased from the market.

4. Sarpa

Probably the best looking Gunblade.

Sarpa is a better alternative for the Redeemer for a higher MR requirement. It is merged with a burst-rifle that shoots 5 bullets in succession.  It has a higher status chance, crit chance, and better attack speed. However, its problem is that it has the lowest base damage, and its alt attack has a very high spread. With a bit of modding knowledge, it can still be used well.

  • It primarily deals slash damage, which is good against health.
  • Alt attack, when used at a close range, can ragdoll enemies.
  • Each bullet hit with success increases the Melee Combo Counter.

Normal Attack Stats:

  • Damage: 160
  • Attack Speed: 1
  • Status chance: 28%
  • Crit chance/multiplier: 14%, 2x

Secondary Attack Stats:

  • Damage: 35
  • Charge time: 0.3s
  • Range: 300m
  • Attack Speed: 3.33


Blueprints for Sarpa can be purchased from the market.

3. Vastilok

Put any elemental mods and you're good to go.

Vastilok is another Gunblade equipped with a shotgun.  This weapon boasts the highest status chance among all Gunblades. This weapon comes with good stats and is probably the first one that can keep up till late-game.

  • It has the highest status chance among all Gunblades.
  • It has the highest blocking angle of all Gunblades.
  • Normal and gun attack both deals heavy damage.

Normal Attack Stats:

  • Damage: 279
  • Attack Speed: 1
  • Status chance: 31%
  • Crit chance/multiplier: 19%, 1.7x

Secondary Attack Stats:

  • Damage: 621
  • Charge time: 0.4s
  • Range: 300m
  • Attack Speed: 2.5


Unfortunately, there is no way to get blueprints for Vastilok for now. However, it could be obtained after watching TennoCon 2021 on Warframe’s Twitch channel for 30mins. There’s a high chance that it will be available again in the future. Till then, have some patience.

2. Redeemer Prime

Basically, a heavily buffed Redeemer with a golden touch.

The prime variant of the Redeemer is just stupidly buffed up compared to its classic counterpart. This melee weapon is easily one of the hardest hitters in Warframe and is still a top-tier weapon. This weapon could’ve been on the top spot but, since the devs nerfed Condition Overload mod, the Stropha has a bit more advantage.

  • It has the second-highest base damage of all Gunblades.
  • It has the second-highest crit and status chance.
  • Its alternate attack deals up to 800 blast damage.

Normal Attack Stats:

  • Damage: 212
  • Attack Speed: 0.917
  • Status chance: 30%
  • Crit chance/multiplier: 24%, 2.2x

Secondary Attack Stats:

  • Damage: 800
  • Charge time: 0.4s
  • Range: 300m
  • Attack Speed: 2.5


This weapon has been Vaulted and is no longer available. If you’re lucky and have a Void relic with this weapon in it, you can still acquire it.

1. Stropha

It's saddening that you can unlock it very early, but can only be used later into the game.

When Stropha was first released, many players thought that it just didn’t do enough damage. But after the bugs had been fixed, it has basically become one of the top-tiers in the game.  It has the highest crit stats and base damage among all Gunblades and deals a balanced combination of Impact, Puncture and, Slash damage.

  • It has the highest base damage among all Gunblades.
  • It also has the highest crit chance and multiplier.
  • Alt fire has a wide range and ragdolls nearby enemies when fired.

Normal Attack Stats:

  • Damage: 220
  • Attack Speed: 1
  • Status chance: 14%
  • Crit chance/multiplier: 30%, 2.4x

Secondary Attack Stats:

  • Damage: 700
  • Charge time: 0.4s
  • Range: 17m
  • Attack Speed: 2.5


Stropha has a 30% drop chance after defeating the Jackle. Its components can be obtained from the Granum Void.
