Warframe: Rhino Builds 2019

Want to see how Rhino compares to your favorite Warframes? Check out our Warframe Tier List.

Rhino’s Abilities:

Rhino is one of the more popular Warframes to use in the game because you can get his parts relatively early in the game and he can tank massive amounts of damage with his Iron Skin ability which is friendly to newer players. In this guide, we’ll take you through three possible builds (with some variants) for Rhino that can suit your desired play style. In order to fully get an idea of how to build Rhino, we also need to take a look at his abilities.

  • Rhino Charge
  • Iron Skin
  • RoaR
  • Rhino Stomp

Rhino Charge: Rhino charges towards a target, clobbering any in his path and goring his victim.

Iron Skin: Rhino hardens his skin, insulating himself from all damage.

Roar: Grants all nearby Warframes increased damage for a short duration.

Rhino Stomp: Rhino stomps with force sufficient enough to disrupt time, tumbling enemies around in stasis.

Build 1: Iron Skin

This build focuses on Rhino’s “Iron Skin” ability in order to absorb damage and focuses on ability strength in order to increase the effect of “Iron Skin”. The mods in this build will also help you debuff enemies, and deal damage for when you have to recast the Iron Skin ability due to the “Iron Shrapnel” mod.

| Mods

  1. Corrosive Projection
  2. Power Drift
  3. Armored Agility
  4. Intensify
  5. Fleeting Expertise
  6. Iron Shrapnel
  7. Transient Fortitude
  8. Steel Fiber
  9. Streamline
  10. Blind Rage

Build 1.5: Iron Skin Alternate

Substitute the streamline mod for the Iron Clad mod. This will make the build less efficient, but will greatly increase the amount of damage you can take with Iron Skin. The Iron Clad mod increases your armor by %50 for every enemy hit with Rhino Charge.

| Mods

  1. Corrosive Projection
  2. Iron Clad
  3. Power Drift
  4. Armored Agility
  5. Intensify
  6. Fleeting Expertise
  7. Iron Shrapnel
  8. Transient Fortitude
  9. Steel Fiber
  10. Blind Rage

Build 2: Buffer

Rather than using “Iron Skin” as the main ability, this build focuses on Rhino’s “Roar” ability. Therefore, most of the mods will focus on ability strength and duration in order to keep the buff on your allies for as long as you can. If you feel you can stay close to your allies, substitute stretch for another mod.

| Mods

  1. Intensify
  2. Blind Rage
  3. Transient Fortitude
  4. Power Drift
  5. Narrow Minded
  6. Continuity
  7. Constitution
  8. Stretch
  9. Streamline
  10. Natural Talent

Build 2.5: Buffer Alternate

This buffer alternate will still provide you with the ability strength and duration to utilize the Roar buff on your allies. However, there are some mods that have been substituted out so that you can still maintain some of that tankyness that Rhino is known for.

| Mods

  1. Corrosive Projections
  2. Power Drift
  3. Narrow minded
  4. Blind Rage
  5. Intensify
  6. Streamline
  7. Steel Fiber
  8. Primed Continuity
  9. Primed Flow
  10. Stretch

Build 3: Eidolon Hunter

With the popularity of the Plains of Eidolon, there needs to be a Rhino build that allows you to gain energy passively and that’s what this build helps with. Energy Siphon allows you to passively gain energy between the damage periods for the Eidolons. Because of this, you can’t fully rely on Iron Skin being up all the time, so mods like Steel Fiber and Vigor help with innate tankiness to damage.

| Mods

  1. Energy Siphon
  2. Power Drift
  3. Steel Fiber
  4. Continuity
  5. Intensify
  6. Transient Fortitude
  7. Vigor
  8. Streamline
  9. Fleeting Expertise
  10. Blind Rage
