In an effort to balance things out more, and perhaps get the majority of the Warframe player base to broaden their horizons when it comes to which weapons they use, Digital Extremes recently reworked the game’s ammo system and nerfed several AoE-specific weapons. These changes were also focused around the Wukong Warframe, which allows players to clone themselves and deal even more damage – not exactly a good mix if players are already using incredibly powerful AoE weapons and the developers are hoping to create some kind of a challenge.
And, that’s more or less the point of the changes that have players so riled up. The idea was to balance things so that one character and three weapon choices didn’t dominate the game. According to Fanbyte, this meant nerfing Wukong by reducing its damage and forcing the clone character to use the player’s ammo rather than an infinite supply of its own. And of course, they also nerfed AoE weapons. Interestingly, one player review on Steam noted that 50% of the game’s player base makes use of one of these weapons, 25% uses another, and 10% uses a third. The remaining 15% of the player base is divided between nearly 400 other weapons available in the game. That’s definitely not ideal.
That being said, there are plenty of players upset by the changes, as they feel it’s making things harder for them. One review even notes that “players want to play more easily”. This probably is true, a lot of people do like for things to be easier. But, obviously, Warframe was never intended to be THIS easy. It’ll be interesting to see how everything shakes out, as changes have already been made to weapons that run on "batteries" rather than ammo, but it will likely be a while before we find out the final fixes coming from Digital Extremes.
