Warframe turns 7, hands out free gear and new patches at its birthday party

The poster child for games that started out terribly but worked their way all around to actually being good, Warframe is bigger and better nearly a decade after its initial release and that’s kind of inspiring. Everyone loves a good underdog story and Warframe is one of the best we have in the industry, establishing itself as one of the most fantastic looter-shooters/slash-and-grab games on the market…and it’s totally free! Warframe fans are an avid lot, I can tell you that much, and without their dedication and love it would no-doubt the game would have been quickly buried and forgotten about. Digital Extremes is clearly aware of this too, so to say thanks for everyone’s hard work they’re handing out free stuff.

Celebrating Warframe’s seventh anniversary, players who log into the game any time before March 30 will be gifted with a Dex Raksaka Armour Set, specifically designed for the birthday celebration. Of course, there’s more than just a free armour set though. Every three days throughout the rest of the month, players will be able to earn special items by completing in-game events; these items include weapon slots, Dex weapons and cosmetics from anniversary events past. Sounds like a lot to grind for but that’s basically the best part about Warframe, right? I’m genuinely asking because I’ve never played it. I’ll go ahead and assume I’m right.

This month of presents and events comes just before Warframe’s next big update, Operation Scarlet Spear which is expected to launch later this month on PC and on consoles a little later on. Time to go to war…with some frames, I guess? I don’t know what you Warframe players do. Go and kill things for a new helmet, I guess.

    “Dex weapons and cosmetics from anniversary events past”

    So no grind then because we did this every year for the same weapons and cosmetics.

    Why does this article have a condescending tone towards Warframe players?

          Dude, it’s a joke. I’ve gone to kill things for a helmet. I even spent around an hour killing high level infested to get this mod & 1 credit as a reward:

            Guess I’m just being really oversensitive. Spent too much time with MILLENNIALS this weekend.

            Were you born between 1980 and 1996?

            So you’re 60? (Or at least 41)

          • Original Heretic

            March 9, 2020 at 12:11

            Correct. I am at least 41.

            Damn you’re old. Do you even know how to use the internet? Need me to get off your lawn? Need me to show you how to unlock that new smartphone of yours (hint, use fingerprints. Yes, you can use fingerprints now. Tech is great.)?

            Finger?! I can use my finger?!
            Here I thought I needed to press my nose against it every time.

            Ah, you need glasses. That’s your problem!

            Me too. Sad face.

    Not even that sweet armour set is enough to entice me back.

    And FYI, anniversary item grind is piss easy because everyone’s meant to get it without too much effort. All you really need is to have the star chart unlocked so you can access the mission nodes.
