Warframe Tier List: Best Warframes 2022

From the best to the worst!

Warframe, as a game, has a lot of customizable exo-suits that you can get your hands on. Some of these suits are downright versatile and excel in every role. Other suits, based on their abilities and stats, are suited to a specific type of task. Keeping in mind all these parameters, here's a quick tier list of all the Warframes, from the best to the not-so-great ones.
