Digital Extremes’ Warframe finally receives a new update named ‘The Saint of Altra’. This update brings a new character, mode expansions and additional exciting content to the free-to-play action game.
The Saint of Altra update introduces a new Warframe, Gauss. This super-speedy warrior can run at lightning speeds by building up kinetic energy. Gauss can run fast enough to cross huge expanses in seconds and run on water with ease. The update also brings new changes to the previously released Disruption Mode. There are new nodes for these challenges at the Grineer Settlement on Mars, the Corpus Outpost at Laomedeia Neptune, Grineer Galleon at Sedna Kelpie, Grineer Galleon on Uranus, the Grineer Kuva Fortress at Tamu, and Lua at Apollo.
The update also added new skins, armor sets and emotes to the customization menu, and a boost to the Riven Mod slot limit from 90 to 120 to expand your arsenal. That’s a lot of content considering that Warframe is a free-to-play game.
The highlight of this update is obviously the new Warframe character, Gauss. If you are eager to give Gauss a try, we have a guide for you on how to get it in Warframe. Just continue reading this article.
Keeping Gauss in motion slowly generates an electrical current that charges his Speed Gauge. This will help Shields recharge up to 80% faster, and decrease recharge delay by up to 20%. The Speed Gauge will drain based on the usage of Gauss’s abilities.
Gauss can dash forward at fast speeds. While running, Gauss inflicts huge damage to enemies in the area of effect. Crashing into solid objects will generate a powerful shockwave that inflicts huge damage to enemies.
Activating Kinetic Plating generates an armor plating around Gauss that converts absorbed Kinetic Damage into Energy. This protects Gauss from physical damage (Puncture, Slash, Impact), Cold and Heat damage. But with every hit, the Energy Gauge will deplete. This ability is similar to Nezha’s Warding Halo and Rhino’s Iron Skin.
This ability absorbs kinetic energy which boosts Gauss’s battery gauge and inflicts Cold status on nearby enemies. Holding the ability drains the battery and inflicts Heat Status on nearby enemies.
Pushing Gauss’ battery over the redline will supercharge his abilities and set Attack Speed, Reload Speed, Fire Rate, and Holster Rate into overdrive. This will open up his thermal vents which inflict huge damage on enemies.
How to get Gauss in Warframe
In order to get parts for Gauss, you have to play the new Disruption Mode expansion.
- First, travel to Grineer Galleon: Sedna, Kelpie Node to finish rounds of Disruption Mode at this location.
- Gauss parts have a 10% drop chance from Rotation C on Disruption missions from Sedna. There’s only one mission. So, you have to grind the same mission multiple times.
- If you are new to Disruption mode, this can get quite complicated. You have to hack a terminal to begin a wave. This will spawn infinite groups of enemies called Amalgams. To complete a wave, you have to hack four terminals to restrict Amalgams from spawning and destroy special enemies called the Demolysts. Also, make sure you protect at least one terminal for each wave since Demolysts will try to destroy the terminal by self-destructing. If you stop the Demolysts before the self-destruction, you will successfully defend the terminal.
- You have to defend all four terminals on the third wave to receive a Gauss’s part. But from wave four, you only need to defend three terminals each time.
- Make sure you choose the right Warframe to complete the challenge. We recommend you to choose Rhino. His Stomp ability gives you an opportunity to heal your allies and his Iron Skin ensures less physical damage.
- Once you get all of Gauss’s parts, buy the primary Blueprint for 30,000 Credits from the market.
