Warframe Guide: How to get Rhino

How To Get Rhino In Warframe

We’re back once again here at ISKMogul with yet another Warframe guide. For you new folks in the back, Warframe is a free-to-play shooter made by Canadian studio, Digital Extremes. The game has earned a pretty good reputation over the years for delivering a truckload of fun and engaging content across a variety of expansions. Problem is, sometimes new players can get lost in the mechanical depth. So we’ve started building out some Warframe guides, and one the areas of interest is how to get new frames. We already did guides on Ivara, Garuda, Vauban and others. Now we’re focusing on a purely tank Warframe, Rhino.

As the wiki describes Rhino, “Rhino is a heavily armored Warframe with the strength and fortitude of his reckless, stampeding namesake. Rhino trades speed for power and is designed to fill the tank role.” He’s a bulkier frame, so he isn’t nearly as fast as other basic options like Volt or Gauss, but he makes up for it in raw power.

His in-battle abilities can chew through quite a lot of enemies, and soak up tons of damage. He can deal damage as a great crowd control build too. Iron Skin makes up his primary defensive layer, meaning he’s pretty high on the list of staying power rankings in a fight. Rhino Roar and Stomp offer a few AoE offensive options to help clear away enemies, while often stunning them. His Rhino Charge is great for maneuvering into a better firing position, while also pushing away opposition.

Rhino is a pretty easy Warframe to build, but he’s much harder to farm for compared to the other starter options we’ve covered in other guides.

Farming the three component Blueprints is going to take some doing. To get Rhino, you will need to fight the Jackal on the Fossa node, which is the latter part of Venus. This means you will need to be in the mid-tier of the Star Chart at a minimum. Fighting through to the Jackal, the final boss on the planet is the easy part. It’s taking down the Corpus monstrosity that’s more challenging. You will have to run this fight multiple times to get the Blueprint set, so be prepared.

Here are some basic tips for defeating Jackal:

  • Avoid head-on fights, keep to his flanks. He is easier to coral while also avoiding damage.
  • Bring Radiation damage, which is composed of Electricity and Heat elements, he’s weak to those.
  • Shoot his legs, the stumble this can cause is really useful for getting easy DPS in.
  • Keep Adds clear, especially the Ospreys.

The Systems Blueprint is decidedly rarer too, so keep that in mind. Compared to the 38% drop chance of the other two components, the Systems BP drops about 22% of the time. You also need the Blueprint for the full frame of Rhino, which is just 35,000 Credits from the normal Market. No need to much about with farming for that part at least.

For the basic resources listed below, they drop most often on the planets listed. Normal enemies and loot containers drop them in OK quantities. Always keep cycling your Extractors for those basic resources, even early in the game when you’re low in Mastery Ranks, you will save a run or two later in your farming efforts.

  • Alloy Plate: Venus, Sedna, Jupiter, Ceres, Pluto and Phobos
  • Ferrite: Earth, Mercury, Neptune and Orokin Void
  • Salvage: Mars, Jupiter and Sedna
  • Rubedo: Earth, Europa, Phobos, Sedna, Pluto and Orokin Void
  • Polymer Bundle: Venus, Mercury and Uranus
  • Plastids: Saturn, Phobos, Uranus, Eris and Pluto

The farming of these more rare resources is pretty tricky. These rare resources are often restricted to higher Mastery Rank, and sometimes locked behind boss fights.

  • Neural Sensors: Missions on Jupiter and the Kuva Fortress
  • Morphics: Mercury, Mars, Europa and Pluto
  • Control ModuleVoid Missions are a good source for this, as are higher level missions on Europa and Neptune
  • Gallium: Defeat Lech Kril (Mars, War) or Tyl Regor (Uranus, Titania)

To assemble Rhino, you will need the following resources for each part, and some extras for final assembly:

Chassis

  • 15,000 Credits
  • 1 Morphics
  • 1000 Ferrite
  • 300 Rubedo

Neuroptics

  • 15,000 Credits
  • 150 Alloy Plate
  • 1 Morphics
  • 150 Polymer Bundle
  • 500 Rubedo

Systems

  • 15,000 Credits
  • 1 Control Module
  • 1 Morphics
  • 500 Salvage
  • 600 Plastids

Full Frame

  • 25,000 Credits
  • 1 Rhino Chassis
  • 1 Rhino Neuroptics
  • 1 Rhino Systems
  • 1 Gallium

Once you have all the Blueprints, head to the Foundry and start build. Although remember, it’s going to take time. And the few days you have to wait can be better spent doing other farming or leveling up gear, so save your Platinum and don’t rush it. Also, check to make sure you have an open slot before beginning the build.

Warframe is free-to-play now on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch. The developers recently deployed the Rising Tide update, which introduced the first of the player-built ships, the Railjack. You will want to jump on that to be ready when Empyrean drops next year.
