** The Rhino Prime frame. Up until this point, Prime frames only had extra polarities, not counting the LostForever Excalibur Prime. Rhino Prime has all the tanking ability of the original without the slower movement speed, making him a LightningBruiser even without the Vanguard Helmet. And now a Loki Prime with a bigger energy pool than the original has been released, so this appears to be the new standard for Primed Frames.

** As if Excalibur Prime didn't have enough controversy, the announcement that Warframe China (working title "Star Armor") would get their own special limited-edition Founder's Pack Excalibur frame called Umbra Excalibur. Cue the fanbase exploding, with many people still sore over Excalibur Prime being LostForever feeling Digital Extremes is legally barred from doing this, [[CriticalResearchFailure somehow]]. [[OhCrap And then Warframe China started distributing the Lato Prime]], which was part of the same Founders pack as Excalibur Prime.

*** In Octavia's Anthem, Ordis vehemently states that [[spoiler:he is willingly distancing himself from Karris as far as possible (which is [[{{Irony}} ironic]], since his lines during the finale show that he still takes joy in killing somewhat, especially when it's Hunhow's fighters), and later makes it clear that he holds genuine sentiment towards the Operator, most prominently in the letter he believes to be his last that is automatically relayed to them once Hunhow captures him. So the former is the most likely correct interpretation of Ordis's personality.]]

** The [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter Tigris]] [[BlingOfWar Prime]] is the latest in the line of shotguns that can reach 100% status chance (which means every ''pellet'' will ''always'' trigger a status effect, instead of an overall chance of at least ''something'' triggering an effect). Unlike the earlier 100% status shotguns (the Strun Wraith and the Boar Prime), the Tigris Prime has ridiculous base damage (meaning the disadvantage of status builds in terms of raw damage is largely negated), a damage distribution heavily biased toward Slash damage (which is a [[DamageOverTime damage-over-time]] status effect that is a player-favorite which each proc stacks on top of each other). A properly built Tigris Prime will melt most mobs with its raw damage like the other top-tier shotguns, and unlike those damage-oriented shotguns, when its raw damage doesn't suffice (mostly against heavily-armored foes at Level 120+ or so), the Slash status effects you inflict on that enemy will still kill it within seconds without requiring another shot (and there's nothing stopping you from firing another shot anyway). It is mainly balanced (with the other top-tier shotguns) by the lack of the healing utility found on the Sancti Tigris, its New Loka syndicate brethren, as well as the highest mastery rank requirement of all weapons (13, shared with the [[BigFreakingSword Galatine Prime]]).

** During missions two and three of the Pacifism Defect event, Sargas Ruk sends [[LaughingMad Manics]] to attack the Grineer defectors that the players are tasked with rescuing. As it turns out, somehow the Manics were never coded to target the defectors, only players, demoting them from serious hazard to relatively-minor nuisance.

Added DiffLines:

** While the Pacifism Defect event had a pretty smooth launch from a mechanical perspective, the way it handled scoring and rewards was rather controversial. In previous events, the Clan and individual components were pretty firmly segregated; each player's performance only affected whether they as an individual would get the individual rewards like cosmetics, mods, and weapons, while a Clan's overall performance only affected communal rewards like trophies for the Clan Dojo. The Pacifism Defect bucked this trend, tying the new event weapon to Clan performance instead of individual performance. Like Clan research, the score thresholds for each reward tier scaled according to the Clan's size category, but, as is traditional for events with a Clan-based component, Clan rosters were locked at the start of the event, preventing larger Clans from kicking inactive players and downsizing for a challenge more appropriate for the number of active members; since a Clan's score was based on the sum of each member's best run of the final mission, this made it progressively harder to reach the higher reward tiers as you went up through the Clan size categories. The next major misstep was the nature of the reward tiers themselves; while previous events had always bundled a weapon slot and pre-installed Orokin Catalyst with their weapons, the Pacifism Defect opted for three different reward tiers for the same weapon: the Participation Tier, which would only give all Clan members a blueprint for the weapon, the Victory Tier, which would give all Clan members a fully-built copy of the weapon with the traditional accouterments, and the Hardcore Tier, which would let the Clan research the weapon for an infinite supply of blueprints. It didn't help matters that the score thresholds for the Participation and Victory tiers were set excessively high given the nature of the event missions, and while the threshold for the Participation Tier was quickly slashed to one-fifth its previous value, the Victory Tier threshold was not adjusted; meanwhile, the cutoffs for the Clan trophies were set so low that achieving the revised Participation tier would get your Clan the second-best trophy automatically. The icing on the cake was the Hardcore Tier, which didn't have a fixed score threshold at all; instead, once the event ended, the Hardcore Tier would be awarded to the top 10% of Clans in each category.

* EightPointEight:
** IGN's review [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/12/05/warframe-review-2 gave it only 7.5]] and made a few factual errors that showed the reviewer clearly didn't bother understanding the game's systems.
*** In particular he referred to the solar map as galaxy map and talked about the player being tasked to kill aliens. It's an easy enough mistake to make if you've only fought Infested, but the game mostly uses humans and robots as enemies; only one of the three factions isn't comprised of them.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Warframe: A race of superpowered ninja killing machines [[SealedEvilInACan awakens from a long slumber]] and proceeds to systematically wipe out the remains of the human race...or at least until the [[LaResistance Red Veil]] showed up.

** The Corpus are men in suits accompanied by robots. Tenno operatives routinely go to their planets and exterminate them by the hundreds, sabotage their economies by destroying their (non-military) mining installations, and destroy their ships. One of the grineer bosses is marked for assassination simply for attempting to reverse the genetic deterioration of his people. Is it a stretch that the Tenno might actually be the villains here?

*** Its [[AceCustom successor]], the Steel Meridian-built Vaykor Hek, is even more powerful, due to its larger clip, high critical chance, and (thanks to Primed Ravage) extremely high critical damage. The one downside is that it loses the ability to use a unique mod for the Hek that increases the number of pellets per shot, but the benefits ultimately outweigh the negatives.
