The Ignis Wraith has been top-tier in Warframe for a long time now. It is not a thinking Tenno’s weapon, as it merely fires a massive burst of flame at enemies. It is perfect for rapidly cutting through large groups, however.
It does inherent Heat damage, but like all weapons can be modded to output other elemental types. It also combines solid Critical Chance and Status Chance, making it suitable for taking on all kinds of enemies.

I have used this Ignis Wraith build for quite a while. I have never felt any need to change it up, regardless of the enemies I am fighting. The Ignis Wraith is not a boss fighting weapon but is one of the best in the game for clearly out mobs, even at higher levels. You do want to back it up with a hard-hitting secondary weapon for good single target damage.
Heavy Caliber, Serration, and Split Chamber all provide general base damage buffs, while Vital Sense ups the damage of the Critical Hits the weapon generates. Point Strike will increase Critical chance, and you can take advantage of this by running a Sentinel weapon with lots of Vigilante mods on it to improve the criticals.
Primed Cryo Rounds and Infected Clip will combine to give you Viral damage. This means you are doing both Heat damage, which will strip armor. Viral damage will seriously reduce enemy health pools.
After that, the fire rate mod of choice. This will dramatically increase DPS, and give greater opportunities for both critical and status ticks. This build will one-hit anything on the star map, and easily cut through enemies up to about level three Sorties.
