Saryn Prime: Press 4 to Destroy Everything | Warframe Build

...and teammates. People may not like you stealing their DPS

No, for real. So many Warframe players straight up leave the game after seeing Saryn Prime in action, especially if you’re Focus-farming in Sanctuary Onslaught.

Saryn Prime is Warframe‘s best nuke. I haven’t invested so much Forma (or cosmetic styling) in any other Warframes as I have in her. She has insane crowd control skills and DPS, and is an invaluable addition to any mode you’re playing. Except for Spy, for obvious reasons, she will shine wherever you use her. If modded correctly, she is ridiculously strong at destroying hordes of enemies, and Volt and Equinox are the only other Warframes that come close to that kind of nuking potential.

General Build: An All-Rounder

The following build can be used for regular missions, where you need a balance of everything and aren’t really min-maxing. The enemies won’t really scale much, and you won’t have too much energy at your disposal.

  • Loot Detector + Power Drift
  • Stretch
  • Overextended
  • Umbral Vitality
  • Umbral Intensify
  • Regenerative Molt
  • Transient Fortitude
  • Primed Continuity
  • Cunning Drift
  • Arcane Guardian + Arcane Energize

Efficiency plays a big part here, since you may not have an EV Trinity on your team. This build can be used outside of organized gameplay, and can easily hold its ground in public lobbies.

Elite Sanctuary Onslaught Build: For Max Strength

The following build can be used for Elite Sanctuary Onslaught or Sanctuary Onslaught missions, where you do have an EV Trinity to keep your Energy count high.

  • Power Drift + Enemy Radar
  • Stretch
  • Overextended
  • Vitality
  • Streamline
  • Blind Rage
  • Transient Fortitude
  • Primed Continuity
  • Cunning Drift
  • Arcane Guardian + Arcane Energize

Here I’m taking out a lot of Efficiency (25 lower than the Regular build) and piling in Strength (44 higher than the Regular build) via Streamline and Blind Rage. Having the additional Strength really helps you get through those rounds. Hope you get your Khora parts soon, if that’s where you’ll be using your Saryn. Side note: ESO is where Saryn is the most satisfying to use. You’re basically the main DPS of the team, unless you have an Equinox alongside, and you’ll most likely be getting the highest damage numbers at the end of the mission.

Endless Build: For Endurance

The following build can be used for endless modes such as Survival or Defense:

  • Power Drift + Enemy Radar
  • Stretch
  • Quick Thinking
  • Vitality
  • Rolling Guard
  • Blind Rage
  • Augur Reach
  • Regenerative Molt
  • Primed Flow
  • Arcane Guardian + Arcane Energize

This build has 175% Range and 214% Strength, sacrificing on Efficiency (45%). This is all you really need, as long as you have your Operator built properly. You may have to rely on them to generate Energy, but other than that you’ll be good to go. This build deals pretty well with scaling enemy levels, and should do you good for a long run at Mot. You can always spec your build and lower range if you’re grinding at Hydron, or doing any other Defense missions.

There’s a dichotomy to ridiculously powerful characters in Warframe. On one hand, you get hyped about builds that let you kill things easily, and on the other, you hate it when your teammates take the spotlight away with insane damage scores. Saryn Prime is a nuke-character done right, and it never gets boring to hear the squish-squash in your speakers as her spores spread out.
