Warframe’s latest development stream was all about shredding on your K-Drive

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Warframe

When Warframe players get to Fortuna and meet the Vent Kids, they’re not going to be ranked by who has the best weapons. They’re not even going to be ranked by who brings these enthusiasts the most Grineer salvage. No, status among the Vent Kids and their love of K-Drives will be determined entirely by who can do the sickest possible kickflip off a halfpipe. Yes, the latest development stream leaned all in on showing off the game’s K-Drives, better known to casual viewers as totally sweet hoverboards complete with all sorts of rad deck customization.

For those of you who are entirely unable to enjoy the idea of grinding rails on your future hoverboards, there were other things on display as well, like the upcoming Equinox deluxe skin and the quality-of-life changes coming with the game’s major melee improvements. But the big point of interest was, yes, K-Drives. We’re not saying that you should go dig out your copy of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 to prepare for their inclusion, but it probably couldn’t hurt.

I didn’t watch the full devstream, but while I’ve been seeing people talk about swapping, have they made any progress towards the Melee + Secondary option yet? I have built up a wicked Zaw and have an amazing Riven for my Stubba — really want to use them together.

I didn’t watch the entire stream yet, while jumping through it i did catch some of the switching, and yea, i like it… allot. Very seamless. If that’s what you are asking?

Well if it is seamless, that’s great. But I’m more curious about if it is coming or not (and in what time frame we might hope to see it live). Too much talk about it and not enough detail!

Pretty sure no date given and unsure if they expose any more details, i did hear “can’t talk about it” so… atm we are left waiting to hear from Namtubb, but i think he’s too busy looking for poop?

The second half of this devstream was the greatest thing ever. I’m so happy I saw it live xD
All I’ll say, “We are looking for some poop.”

An interesting take on the coming features. For myself, I am FAR more interested in the changes coming to weapon swapping than any related to boarding around. That may be because I am not at the ‘End Game’ fashion parade yet and am still run’n and gun’n (or slashing, as the case is).

It will certainly make using multiple weapons much, much more viable than it is now. Currently I tend to stick to my Melee weapon (I really like the game play) and only use my Secondary when I need silence or ranged. That will likely change once the new design goes into release. Primary not used at all, really. Just there to level up for Mastery Rank points.

I mostly use my primary, have a very strong secondary in case i go down or on carry duty, and always use my melee for MR gains.

With these changes coming i looked into a long haul melee option, settled on the Nikana Prime, i had the Dragon version first, and loved the feel of it.

Sure Galatine Prime and Vaykor Sydon are arguably better and one third the plat if you want to go that route for them, but the Nikana Prime is vaulted so i grabbed that now, well before the changes take place.

Once everyone starts taking melee more seriously outside the melee purest players :) i’m sure the cost of a Nikana Prime will rocket on the market.

So i really can’t wait :)
