* MasterOfAll: Rhino Prime, especially with the Arcane Vanguard helmet. Extremely durable, possesses a powerful mobility power and with the Vanguard helmet can keep up with the ''fastest Warframe in the game'', can buff allies and temporarily neutralize enemies in a wide radius. Outside of Defense and Excavation missions, he is one of the most powerful and adaptable warframes. Prior to its nerf, the Synoid Gammacore secondary weapon was a handheld DeathRay with nigh-infinite ammo that could scythe through entire platoons of troops before having to reload, causing all other seconds and even most primaries not called the "Boltor Prime" to become redundant, though the post-nerf version drains ammo at a truly alarming speed.

* MetalSlime: Oxium Ospreys are an uncommon Corpus enemy and one of the few sources of the Oxium resource. They love to charge at unsuspecting Tenno and blow up without dropping anything. They do make a unique noise beforehand, allowing Tenno to dodge and get their hits in, but newer players can become frustrated at missing a chance at more Oxium.

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: The Steel Meridian and Red Veil may be working together as two parts of LaResistance against the various despots, madmen and abominations causing suffering in the System, but ''Operation: Rathuum'' seems to indicate that this works ''only barely''. If your primary allegiance is to the Red Veil group, they will demand you turn over the Grineer defectors rescued from Kela De Thaym to them, even though it was their allies, Steel Meridian, who asked you to intervene in the first place. The Veil promise to release them to Steel Meridian if they find the defectors to be "honorable" but does anyone ''really'' believe that?

* RocketPoweredWeapon: The Jat Kittag has a pair of jet engines mounted behind the hammer head, allowing it to attack almost as fast as a regular weapon while simultaneously stunlocking the enemy. With the Crushing Ruin stance, the rockets can be engaged to launch the player forward while [[SpinAttack spinning the hammer]] to murderize anything in the way. Ground-slam attacks will send enemies flying across the room.

* RocketPoweredWeapon: The Grineer are big fans. The Jat Kittag heavy hammer has a pair of jet engines mounted behind the hammer head, allowing it to attack almost as fast as a regular weapon while simultaneously stunlocking the enemy. With the Crushing Ruin stance, the rockets can be engaged to launch the player forward while [[SpinAttack spinning the hammer]] to murderize anything in the way. Ground-slam attacks will send enemies flying across the room. Meanwhile, the Halikar is a rocket-powered, guided throwing mace which automatically returns to its user and can ever disarm the enemy it hits.


Added DiffLines:

** Grineer weapons design philosophy centers around any number of ''outlandishly'' brutal combinations, such as rocket-powered hammers and boomerangs, whips with ''meat grinders'' attached to the business end, swords and knives with electrically-superheated blades, man-portable saw-blade launchers and handheld flak cannons.

** Cephalon Suda vs. New Loka: Side with a unfeeling, possibly crazy A.I. who wishes to study everything in the universe (and "study" includes "maim, kill, and disassemble anything she considers worthless"), or side with [[GranolaGirl a bunch of hippies]] who wish to revert to untainted humanity (and their idea of 'untainted humanity' seems to only include ''them''), yet see no problem in employing [[EvilIsNotAToy Infested Ancients]], and recolonize Earth, at the cost of technological progress and placing the Earth above everything else in the war.

* NoTranshumanismAllowed: The New Loka group wants to return humanity to its "untainted" form, believing that this is the only way to stop the war and restore peace to the system. As noted above, humanity as we understand it is ''long'' gone, and the time before the Orokin Empire is all but completely forgotten. The current inhabitants of the System still ''resemble'' humans superficially but even the civilian hostages the Tenno have to rescue are capable of at ''least'' the superhuman agility required to keep up with their rescuers. Beyond them, Grineer footsoldiers are, to a man, augmented with cybernetics that keep their bodies functioning and Corpus crewmen are equipped with all sorts of technologies like shield generators, [[TrickedOutShoes hover-skates]] and anti-Tenno auras.



* PeninsulaOfPowerLeveling: The Interception mission located in Draco, Ceres is a popular area for power leveling due to the large swarms of high-level enemies you'll find there. With a good enough group, it's possible to fully level what would have been a mid-level Frame/weapon.

The [[ANaziByAnyOtherName fascist, militaristic]] Grineer Empire is subjugating and crushing its way through the Solar System with [[CloneArmy a flood of degenerating clones]], sustained by [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul perverted science]]. Humanity lives in terror of the Twin Queens and their cronies, who rule with an iron fist, and slaughter and destroy with impunity. Anything they can't annihilate or rule is bought and sold by the Corpus, a [[MachineWorship machine-worshiping]] [[MegaCorp merchant alliance/cult]] of [[CorruptCorporateExecutive backstabbing sadists who'll kill each other for a few credits,]] who run the interplanetary Solar Rails and seek to recover ancient artifacts at any cost - be it their own lives, or anything or anyone that stands in their way, enslaving populations and making profit from their endless proxy wars. And what the Corpus can't buy is infected by the virulent and ancient [[TheVirus Technocyte Plague]] that preys on both, twisting them into [[ZombieApocalypse horrifying Infested that exist only to destroy, consume and assimilate]].

* EvilMakesYouUgly: The Grineer are all clone troopers and their genetic stagnation really shows in their faces. Most of the Grineer bosses have been cybernetically modified and augmented to the point where very little of their original flesh is left and only their decaying faces remain as a key to the human origins they disgrace. Contrast the Steel Meridian leader, who, despite being ex-Grineer, only has a scar on her lip to show for it.

** The Steel Meridian leader is openly dismissive of the Tenno - ''even when you join up with the faction'' (she does appreciate your help, but as per the trope she's really bad at showing it).

** The Steel Meridian vs. The Perrin Sequence: Either side with Grineer traitors who believe in protecting the weak and helpless, but believe in force, violence, and ''especially'' war and all its terrible costs, which they push onto the people they protect by demanding payment, or side with Corpus traitors who push for peace, pacifism, and progress, but still pursue the prized profit, and primarily push for peace to pocket more payout. Also, the Steel Meridian leader is kind of a dick to recruits.

** Tubemen of Regor did a better job of it; Alad was genuinely sympathetic in his desire to purge himself of the infestation, but at the same time his prior actions made it tempting to side with Nef, if not to keep Alad out of the picture then to at least spite him. The fact that both sides offered worthwhile rewards meant Tenno might actually consider both sides this time around (and in fact did, as Alad won on PC and Xbox, but Nef won on PS4.)

* SoLastSeason: The PS4 trailer shows Volt shooting at a Zanuka with a Soma, but to little effect. This is reflected by Damage 2.0 (introduced in the same update as Zanuka) making the Soma not-so-top-tier.

*** Seems he finally learned his lesson, because his next appearance had him offering the Tenno some nice goodies for helping him swipe Tyl Regor's clone research to reverse his infestation; once he decided to start paying the Tenno to help him, his scheme went off without a hitch, even with Nef Anyo trying to counteroffer him to avoid him regaining power (except for PS4, where Nef was successful in blunting his recovery.)

* ExcusePlot: The game began with one; you are part of a clan of space ninjas, fighting to push fascist space assholes and their army of degenerate clones out of the known galaxy, and crush some corrupt corporate goons, ''and'' deal with a '[[TheVirus technocyte plague]]' that's overrunning countless ships, stations, and colonies. Later updates have been adding more and more lore, backstory, and character depth; so far this has culminated in the Second Dream, a ''major'' WhamEpisode that heavily invokes NothingIsTheSameAnymore.

** One possible mission style for the Archwing is called the [[Franchise/StarWars Trench Run]], and it involves the Tenno zipping through canyon-like passageways and through ship vent shafts. Speaking of Star Wars, a secret order of samurai-influenced warriors fighting against a corrupt empire that fields cloned stormtroopers and a galaxy-spanning corrupt corporation that relies on robots seems familiar. The Grineer Dargyn (the standard Grineer enemy in Archwing) also shares the shape and design of the Slave One, albeit scaled down and unable to turn into a tank.

** The Arbiters of Hexis are a group of Tenno who reject the "Tenno are bloodthisrty assassins and nothing more" concept, instead focusing on honor, scholarly pursuits, and martial perfection, and avoid violence except when it's necessary to uphold justice; they want to keep the galaxy in balance, and only turn to violence when it's necessary to maintain that balance. The Red Veil are fanatical, bloodthirsty (but intelligent and professional) warriors who believe that, in a galaxy full of brutal tyrants with armies of clones, world-sundering factories, and scorched-earth military tactics, corrupt profit-hungry CEO opportunists who backstab anyone and everyone to make a quick buck and spend all their resources and creative power inventing new ways to kill things, and vicious monsters that can't be reasoned with and kill anything that moves, KillEmAll is the best approach to sorting out the conflicts plaguing the galaxy.
