Warframe Primary Weapons Tier List [All Guns Ranked 2024]

This Warframe Primary Tier List is curated after experiencing the game for 140+ hours and considering some of the important weapon stats!

Warframe features hundreds of weapons across various categories, and there are 167 primary guns. While most weapons perform spectacularly in any scenario, not all of them are the go-to options. To separate the best from the weak or underperforming guns, I have curated the Warframe Primary weapons tier list and ranked all guns in the game.  

Key Takeaways
  • There are 167 Primary Weapons in Warframe.
  • S Tier: Unparalleled power, dominating enemies with the best weapon stats in the game.
  • A Tier: Reliable and strong, offering consistent performance for various in-game scenarios.
  • B Tier: Versatile and balanced, providing dependable firepower in any mission situation.
  • C Tier: Functional, occupying a middle ground with decent but not outstanding performance.
  • D Tier: Less effective, challenging players to overcome limitations with skill and strategy.
  • F Tier: Subpar, facing increased difficulty, recommended to pass for more effective alternatives.

Throughout my 140+ hours of experience, I had the most fun when I was using these S-tier Warframe Primary guns. The devastation these weapons unleash on targets in the game is unparalleled to what you never get from the guns of lower tiers.

These top-tier S-ranking weapons deliver unparalleled damage and efficiency, making them indispensable for any mission. If you want to melt enemies and put them out of their misery faster, just go with the guns I have listed in the table above.

The A-ranking weapons on this Warframe guns tier list encompass high-quality primary weapons that excel in various combat scenarios. While not reaching the peak performance of S-tier weapons, I still found these armaments offer exceptional performance. Any Tenno wielding A-Tier weapons can confidently face formidable foes, delivering substantial damage with reliability and, of course, some of the best weapon stats in the game.

A-tier primary weapons are considered good because they strike a crucial balance between effectiveness and accessibility. I personally recommend the A-tier’s sweet spot of reliability, a go-to option for players who seek a strong and consistent primary weapon without the need for the over-the-top capabilities found in higher tiers.

B-tier primary weapons in this Warframe tier list earn their merit due to their versatility and reliability in diverse gameplay situations. While they may lack the extraordinary power of higher-tier counterparts, B-tier weapons offer a balanced and functional performance, making them well-suited for a wide range of missions.

If you take my opinion, I find the C-tier primary weapons in the Warframe guns tier list, while functional, occupy a middle ground where their performance is neither exceptional nor lackluster. These weapons offer a decent, but not outstanding, experience in gameplay. They may lack the standout features or power found in higher tiers, requiring players to approach challenges with a more thoughtful and strategic mindset.

While not the go-to choice for those seeking top-tier damage, C-tier primary weapons can still get the job done in less demanding scenarios.

D-tier primary weapons fall into the category of less effective armaments, presenting a challenge for players seeking optimal performance. These weapons are not recommended for those aiming for top-tier efficiency, as they may lack the power, accuracy, or special features found in higher tiers.

I have never seen an appeal to use the D-tier Warframe primary weapons mentioned in the list above when the games offer far better guns.

The F-tier Warframe primary weapons list represents the lowest guns in the pack, offering the least effective options among Tenno armaments. These weapons are generally considered subpar, lacking the power, accuracy, and special features that define higher-tier choices. These weapons are undoubtedly the least effective, lacking the punch and precision I’ve come to expect.

The limited power and accuracy of F-tier weapons demanded an extra level of skill and strategic thinking. Honestly, I found myself questioning whether the added challenge was worth it. In hindsight, I’d recommend passing on F-tier weapons unless you’re specifically looking for a heightened difficulty level.

Warframe Primary Tier List Criteria

With 140+ hours of Warframe experience, I carefully ranked all Primary weapons in the game based on the following stats:

  • Accuracy
  • Critical chance %
  • Critical multiplier
  • Fire rate
  • Magazine
  • Noise
  • Reload
  • Riven disposition
  • Status chance %
  • Trigger
  • Total damage
  • Average hit
  • Burst DPS
  • Sustained DPS

That pretty much sums up my Primary Tier List and the overall ranking of all guns. If you find this tier list helpful, I recommend you also check out the Warframe Archwing Launcher Segment Guide and how to farm Corrupted Mods in the game.
