Ok, I downloaded the update and sampled it a bit, and liked the changes to the melee combat... but this video really shows it off and makes it look like an entirely different game.
Edit: The abilities of the new Warframe are really amazing too...
Warframe Update 11 Highlights
Damage 2.0 Explanation
Every weapon in the game is made up of a combination of these three damage types. The overall damage of any given weapon is the sum of Impact, Puncture, and Slash damage. Weapons will exhibit a variety of combinations on the Impact, Puncture, and Slash damage spectrum. Mods will affect damage types as decided by the player by their loadout.
In short, Weapon Damage = (Impact + Puncture + Slash)
Real-life Firearm Metaphor: Impact=Slug; Puncture=Armor Piercing; Slash=Hollow-point. When assigning physical damage aspects to weapons we avoid making them 'pure' (100% in one direction). This ensures you can damage all enemies in the game.
In addition to the 3 base damage types, Elemental Damage can be applied on top of a weaponâ€™s base damage depending on what Elemental Mods are applied. For some rare weapons, elemental damage is all they have.
There are four primary Elemental Damage types:
Elemental Damage can be applied alone but if you combine primary elements they create new combined elemental damage types! This opens up new possibilities, reduces 'rainbow build' problems and reduces some of the confusing effects like 'frozen guy is on fire'.
Combined Elemental Types:
To create these combined elements requires mixing two primary elements together:
Blast (Fire + Cold)
Gas (Fire + Toxin)
Radiation (Fire + Electricity)
Magnetic (Cold + Electricity)
Viral (Cold + Toxin)
Corrosive (Electricity + Toxin)
Elemental Damage is applied in addition to a weaponâ€™s physical damage types.
Weapon Damage = (Impact + Puncture + Slash) + (Elemental).
Elemental Damage Hierarchy & Combining Elementals
Elemental damage combinations are made by following a strict order.
Fire, Cold, Electric, Toxin.
As an example: If you want Fire damage + Magnetic damage (Cold + Electricity), you will need to split it between weapons because when a Fire Mod enters the mod loadout any other elementals will combine with it as it is first in the hierarchy.
Status Effects ('Procs')
All damage types have a chance to inflict a status on the target â€“ including you!
Puncture: Weakened (reduced damage output)
Slash: Bleed (health reduced over time, healing blocked)
Fire: Ignited (fire damage over time)
Electric: Chain Electricity Damage
Toxin: Poison Damage over time to health.
Gas: Poison in area
Radiation: Confusion (difficulties targeting)
Magnetic: Shield reduction
Corrosive: Armor Damage
Warframe has become more popular than anticipated. Over 3 million registered players as of yesterday!
