    Railjack status: repaired.
    Systems status: operational.

    Designation: HMS Dreadnought. Curious. Records indicate match with ancient pre-Orokin warship. Appropriate.

    I mean, would you rather the chase weapon be so much better than everything else that now you "have to run railjack in order to compete WTF DE NO FAIR"?

    It's cool, it does a cool thing, it looks cool and is flavortastic, and it's not "required" for a thing; this seems to me to be the perfect power level for a weapon in this kind of content. How much do we all love grinding the plains for amp mats, after all?

    Maybe, and it probably needs a lot of work. But I'm having a lot of fun with it so far. I'm just starting to get actual intrinsic abilities. I'm thinking gunner/engineer first as those seem to be the money abilities.

    The Shedu's greatest crime is that it fails fashion frame. It should have become your arm. didn't they have concept art where that happened? as it is base shoulder armor for most of the frames I use clip through it, and it makes me sad.

    Mine is pretty good. If I want to supercharge it with Harrow's 2 it regens ammo faster than you can shoot and it's just endless blasto.

    IDK.. I solo farmed my Shedu and ephemera through solo play, without abort spamming, and while it took a while to do, I don't think that it takes all that much to get within the scope of the average Warframe player's playtime.

    To DP's earlier point, the fact that it isn't a be-all end all weapon is good. It's not really meant to be a special-special weapon (the enemies that drop the part are surely going to show up elsewhere) and the only thing that makes it special now is the First To Get factor... so IDK.

    I mean compared to the grind to get a good roll on a specific Kuva weapon? I'll take the Shedu grind any day :P

    Welp ... I named my railjack ... um ... R34L.J4CQ ... not great but it will remain.

    Also, I didn't see a way to get a public match going since the only prompt you get is to start a mission. But if IDK if randos can actually start missions without a railjack so when you start a mission ... your first mission ... you'll probably be alone. IDK how public matchmaking works in RJ. My first mission was a dumpster fire which failed after I killed both crew ships ... lucky me? I ended up joining a group afterward by invite. Then proceeded to run circles around everyone else in the mission who were just faffing about. I took out every crew ship, repaired almost every catastrophic failure, and crafted more revolite than you could shake a stick at ... I felt like the hero of a movie.

    At one point just before I went out the airlock to take out a crew ship I hear catastrophic breach. I look for the crew ship and it is about 10,000 meters away ... so I die two times trying to make it over there. Take out the reactor, make my way back to the ship without dying, and the ship is still in catastrophic failure ... still? I'm sure it was a new catastrophic failure right ... anyway. I proceed to try and repair the damage ... out of revolite ... what have you guys been doing ... rush to the basement to make some revolite and then back up to repair the failure with two seconds to spare ... whew.

    And before you ask ... no, I do NOT have the perk that allows me to yeet myself across the map, breach the crew ship hull, OR return instantly to our ship ... so yeah. But then again I only ran two missions with the group before I have to head off to bed. Work is not going to work itself now is it ... Neither are bills gonna pay themselves. T'was a fun romp. Gonna take this in small doses though.

    Personally I do Titania because of the death pixie mode's innate loot vacuum but Titania requires a lot of work to get and then a decent amount of work to get up to snuff.

    My recommendation would probably be Rhino or Nezha and pubbing it. Mostly just because if you're doing the low risk version you can usually just do nothing and still win.

    If you're doing quest version of The Index? Then yeah that's a lot tougher solo. I'd probably recommend looking at some videos for strats because without a pre-built group it's... not fun.

    Something about Railjack is confusing me. I know that not being able to effectively aim turrets on the Switch version is a temporary issue that's going to be patched out, but how do people on the Xbox and PS4 aim turrets?

    To start an RJ mission, you need to select a node from the railjack's nav console. Picking a node from the orbiter's console throws you into someone else's mission.

    It seems to work from the observatory as well. Which is actually kind of annoying, since that means that you have to completely exit the dojo to join someone else.

    I wouldn't mind having a more general means of forcing yourself to host a new mission, rather than having when to her you start or join one be pseudorandom.

    Pilot turrets aren't on a gimbal on consoles. So you shoot where you're heading. you still get the lead markers from gunnery if you have that.

    Gunner turrets require Gunnery 2 to go 360, at which point they're less up to the whims of your pilot's direction. They also cease to make sense at this point (imo)

    I don't think that was ever in question, but the Hek is available at MR 4 and the base Tigris at MR 7, which is why the Hek gets recommended so often to new players.

    I like the Tiggy just fine, but its trigger type is pretty unique and takes a bit of getting used to, whereas the Hek is just boom, boom, boom, boom.

    I've just finally caught up with all the main stuff over the past few months. A finished Railjack, Shedu, a few Kuva Weapons, mods and Gauss and Garuda. The other ones I'll pick up as I go.

    Do you have gunnery for the lead marker?

    I don't believe there's any aim assist, magnetism or sticky at all in railjack either so if you're not on the dot with those shots then you're not going to hit. The twin lasers (forgot the name) get the brunt of this disadvantage.

    I wasn't aware that they were going to patch that out though.

    They've stated that the controls don't have gyro aim yet, which makes me fairly optimistic.

    I notice that you run Trinity whenever we play together. Allow me to give a little advice that MAY be helpful. As a fellow Trinity main (and if you run index with her) your job is to keep the ball/point carriers alive. Blessing and Energy Vampire are your friends. Just follow around the people who are tanking (usually the Nova [if built right], Rhino or the Inaros) and pop blessing whenever you run into enemies. Also, energy vampire will stagger most of the enemies in the index so you get at least a few free shots to hopefully kill them before they recover. Don't take it upon yourself to pick up points, just stay hypermobile, aware, and if you see a stray point lying around pick it up. But once you have more than 4 or 5 points bank them. If you keep the point carriers alive, and stick to them like glue it's easier even if THEY suck are not that good.

    I had a ton of graphical glitches since the patch drop. Plus we don't have some of the QOL from the latest hotfixes so it is a hot mess ... a fun hot mess .... but still sloppy. Gonna go run a few more RJ missions tonight but probably won't get too far.
