The Amphis used to be one of the best weapons in Warframe. Back in the old movement system, when spinning your way around levels was the best way to travel, the Amphis could hurl you across a room, which was a lovely bonus. But those days are gone, and the Amphis has been all but forgotten. In update 25.4.0, it has gotten a little update, but does this put any life back in the old war-stick?
How To Get The Amphis
You can pick up the Amphis Blueprint from the Market for 15,000 Credits. After that, you will need to build it in your Foundry using the following resources:
- 30,000 Credits
- 2 Neurodes
- 500 Salvage
- 600 Circuits
- 600 Alloy Plate
Is The Amphis Worth Using?
Being very blunt, I am going to say no, not for most players. Outside of the new jumping shock attack, the rest of the stats are just too low to matter. Zaws can completely outmatch a critical chance of only 7.5%, and a status chance of just 10% that you build on Cetus. It does high Impact damage, which is excellent against shields, but shields don’t matter right now in the game. While you can use the Clashing Forest stance with it, you can also use those on Zaws, so it’s not that attractive an option either.
The truth is that the Amphis is just outdone by many other weapons in the game, despite its lighting fast attack speed. It is just MR fodder, or perhaps a bit of fun for those who haven’t gotten a Lesion, which is a much better status weapon For critical builds, many other weapons provide a better foundation.
I reserve the right to change my mind, but after taking it out on a few missions, it just doesn’t have much to offer without a complete stats rework. So, while you might want to give it a whirl, I wouldn’t expect to fall in love with the Amphis any time soon.
