Abilities of Warframe Atlas:
If you want to create an Atlas build then you must be aware of the abilities of Atlas Warframe. All of the Warframe builds revolve around their abilities. Let us take a look at the abilities of Atlas:
Using this ability, Atlas strikes an explosive punch to the enemy while dashing towards it. The nearby enemies take some amount of damage as well. A quick second punch converts into a combo knocking down the enemies. Petrified enemies take more damage and drop rubble which restores the health of Atlas and supplements the armor.
This ability allows Atlas to summon a rock wall and activating it again lets the rock crashing with the enemies giving them huge blows and creating chaos. It can be used to defend from the incoming damage as well as to attack the enemies coming through.
Using this ability, Atlas fossilizes the enemies by turning them to stone. The enemies are then unable to move or attack. The best use of it is in crowd control to target multiple enemies and make them an easy target by turning them to stone. Enemies which are killed petrified drop rubble which grants health and bolsters the armor of Atlas.
Atlas summons two stone brawlers for a melee attack. Activating this ability petrifies the nearby enemies making them easy targets to be smashed. The enemies killed drop health rumblers and heal Atlas.
Best Atlas Builds of Warframe:
Now, we will discuss the main and the most important builds of Atlas that can be used in the mission. Generally, in the Atlas builds players look for the use of melee weapons and if they could not find them then they use the different mods so that the melee build can be balanced.
Atlas Build – The Tank Build
The main Atlas build is its Tank Build. In this build, you will find that bashing the enemies is fun to explore using melee weapons. Though it is not necessary to use the melee weapons in this build, melee strongly supports the build, and that is why it is suggested that you go for melee weapons.
As an additional survival mod, you can use the Umbral Vitality mod for gaining control over the Tau Resistance and Umbral Fiber for boosting the armor agility.
The Steel Charge is the most essential mod if you are using melee weapons as it will boost your melee damage. The other mods that can be found useful in this build are the Primed Continuity and the Primed Flow mod that will be providing you energy max and ability duration.
Rumbler Atlas Prime Build
The next build that we will be discussing is the Rumbler Atlas Prime build. Finding the right build is the most challenging thing to do as there are many things that we need to keep in mind when searching for the right build.
You can switch to the Augur message mod for boosting up the ability duration and Augur Secrets for converting the energy spent on the abilities into shields. Also, it boosts the ability duration.
The next significant build is the Steel Charge. Increasing the melee weapon damage and any other mod is not useful because this build is focused on melee weapons.
Atlas and its abilities have become a prime part of Warframe, and that is why they are loved by everyone. However, the builds that Atlas offers are relatively challenging to act on and thus require more knowledge to get through them.
If you know which mods to be used with which abilities, then there are high chances that you might get through it. Make sure that you pick the right build, and the right augmented mods in the mission.
