There are times in Warframe when players wish to enjoy their weapons and not overshadow them with their Warframe’s killing skill. Rhino or his Prime variant (essentially a stronger and flashier version) allows you to do just that and not worry about dying. While all of Rhino’s skills are useful and have their own specialities, it’s his third skill, Iron Skin making him one of the few hard-to-kill warframes.
On his own, he can not be easily seen in the toughest missions in Warframe. However, using two mods Ironclad Charge and Iron Shrapnel, he becomes a tank with the highest amount of effective health in Warframe.

Have you thought of destroying your enemies before you even spot them? If yes, Saryn will definitely come handy to you in warframe. Saryn is the best DPS frame and beleived to be the best warframe when it comes to dealing heavy damage to every enemy in a 50+ meter radius. What makes Saryn extraordinary is her commendable skill, Spores, inflicting damages enemies, spreads to other enemies, and strips their armour.
Combining her third skill Toxic Lash and ultimate skill, Miasma, Saryn can remove any enemy on the map as soon as they appear. However, Saryn is not very good at surviving and is quite fragile, a glass cannon, if you will. Hence, this is where her second skill, Molt, comes into play as it will draw enemy fire and even regenerate her health when modded.
