Limbo is an aquired taste, and the abilities seem wierdly useless..untill suddenly you GET it (after watching youtube videos).
It is a warframe hated by other players because it can really mess up others play, but in certain situations with everyone accepting the Limbo, it can carry the party far – For example Hieracon Excavation a well played limbo can carry a party very far, and solo at least through 20 drills.. Just practice and the right mods plus one of the suitable melee weapons.
One of the tricks is .. Get mods to make a huge long lasting bubble, only use melee inside the bubble (you are invincible in the bubble) once your abilities cooldowns are done, refresh the bubble (this is the part you could get splatted, but with practice..).. Rinse repeat infinitely. And it only works on some “maps” that don’t have enemy nullifiers and other things that can break the bubble, and the Limbo is squishy as f.. So it is very situational.
Also useful for a lot of other solo stuff, such as unlocking rivens.
Limbo was one of my most used frames.. Though I am not sure what changed, its been a year or so since I played.

Thanks for the info. This is the type of gameplay I really like trying to learn, even if I end up not being very good at it. Now I just need to get the Limbo frame to give it a shot.

You can now use ranged weapons in the bubble. Still freezes enemies and enemy fire.

It is my favourite frame. Can do so many missions types and keep a bad team afloat. But you do need to know how to use it properly, and just what the bubble breaks and allows (as far as pickups, interactions with objects). If you don’t, limbo is a detriment to a squad and can stop you from completing goals.

Is invincibility an aspect of the Prime Limbo? Because I play Limbo almost all the time, and you’re not invincible inside it. You can’t be attacked by enemies outside it, but enemies aren’t frozen inside the bubble unless you use stasis.

One great use of the Limbo is to go into the Void before rezzing a teammate. Even if they’re surrounded by enemies, they can’t touch you.

Bubble and stasis always goes together obviously, but you know this and you know it makes you invincible, so why ask?

Not sure what’s with the attitude, but no, I didn’t know this. I know it freezes them so you can kill them, but only a few at a time. You’re still not invincible; just unable to be killed by those particular enemies. Reading your description of Limbo doesn’t sound much like the frame I play.

Sorry didn’t mean it to come out with an attitude :) I assumed you knew. check https://youtu.be/EOJ080CXxpE?t=248

Go invincible (forgot the name of that ability), run to excavator, use stasis then cataclysm (or other way around), stay in bubble where you are invincible and melee (non status weapon setup with good range, I use a huge range whip which name I don’t recall – non status because you are halting time so status effects wont count). When you refresh stasis then cataclysm make sure you have enough range to mobs so they can’t splat you during the second it takes to re-cast… rinse repeat. When excavator fully charged and has like 30 sec to go, refresh stasis+cataclysm at excavator and run for the next (with good duration your bubble should last up to a minute), as soon as you go outside your bubble, immediatly go into invicible mode to make the run to the next excavator risk free.

If you solo, then your problem is that when mobs gets level 150 they have so much hp you will have trouble melee them down fast enough, but with a full party of people (who knows to ONLY melee and use a correct weapon + able to survive the run to next excavators) you can go for a few hours.
Practice this on hieracion excavation.
I have/had maximum range and duration possible with mods at the time, 56 sec on cata if I recall and a gigantic bubble (non prime Limbo).

Of course all of this unless they nerfed some of this the past year while I haven’t played.
