Warframe Secondary Weapons Tier List [All Guns Ranked]

After playing Warframe for at least 500 hours, here is my take on the overall ranking of secondary weapons in the game!

In the pulse-pounding world of Warframe, secondary weapons aren’t just tools, they’re companions in the chaos. Throughout my 500-hour Warframe journey, I’ve discovered that these weapons add a personal touch to combat. That is why I believe it was the right time to curate the Warframe Secondary weapons tier list and separate the best from the worst ones in the game! 

Key Takeaways
  • There are 136 secondary weapons in Warframe.
  • S-Tier: Unrivaled secondary guns with the best stats in the game.
  • A-Tier: Powerful weapons with balanced stats and versatility.
  • B-Tier: Dependable gun choices for well-rounded performance.
  • C-Tier: Functional weapons with strategic potential.
  • D-Tier: Fall short in performance and utility.

All Warframe Secondary Weapons Ranked

I have ranked all Warframe Secondary weapons in the game based on some important stats such as Accuracy, Critical Chance%, Critical Multiplier, Fire Rate, Magazine, Noise, Reload, Riven Disposition, Status Chance, Trigger, Total DMG, Average Hit, Burst DPS, and Sustained DPS.

The A tier showcases secondary weapons that stand as reliable and dependable choices in the Warframe arsenal. While not reaching the higher stats of the S-tier guns, these weapons excel in specific roles, offering impressive damage and unique features.

Players running with A-tier secondary weapons can confidently face a variety of enemies, whether in the midst of chaotic skirmishes or against powerful bosses. Just take my word and grab any weapon from this A-tier list, if you have one, and you will have little to no problem taking out targets!

What I have found is in the B tier, you’ll discover secondary weapons that, while not reaching the prime power of the above two-tiers, still stand as solid and amazing choices. These weapons offer respectable performance and versatility, making them reliable options for a range of situations.

While they may lack the extraordinary features of higher-tier weapons, B-tier secondary weapons still contribute to a well-rounded and effective loadout, ensuring you do not get the burden of having a weapon that does not do what it is supposed to do!

The C-tier Warframe secondary weapons list, according to my hands-on experience, houses secondary weapons that, while functional, may not excel in comparison to higher-tier counterparts. These options may lack the punch and unique features that define more powerful weapons.

I have opted for C-tier secondary weapons a lot of times and have found myself facing some limitations in terms of damage output or versatility due to lackluster stats. However, with strategic modding and skillful gameplay, these weapons can still contribute effectively in less demanding scenarios.

The D-tier encompasses secondary weapons that, unfortunately, fall short in terms of performance and utility. These weapons may struggle to keep pace with the challenges presented in Warframe, offering limited damage output or lacking standout features. I highly suggest you avoid running with these guns in the game! 

Warframe Secondary Weapons Tier List Criteria

After playing Warframe for a lot of years, I have carefully curated this tier list based on the following stats in the game: 

  • Accuracy
  • Critical Chance
  • Critical Multiplier
  • Fire Rate
  • Magazine
  • Noise
  • Reload
  • Riven Disposition
  • Status Chance
  • Trigger
  • Total DMG
  • Average Hit
  • Burst DPS
  • Sustained DPS

This brings me to the conclusion of my Warframe Secondary Tier List. Now, if you consider the content of this tier list was helpful to you, then I highly suggest you do not skip reading these: The Finals: Gadgets Tier ListPixel Piece Fruit Tier ListMW3 Weapons Tier List, and Fortnite Chapter 5 Tier List.
