I'm not asking for which weapon is OP and therefore I should forma. I got my share of formas on fairly reliable weapons like quanta vandal, tonkor, boltor prime, soma prime, prisma grakata, opticor and variety of secondaries like atomos, nukor, acrid, aksomati, most of the syndicate weapons, and lot more I can't remember off the top of my head.

Just wanted to hear about what weapons from the following list you think merit their share of formas. I'd like for you to select up to top three from each category and maybe an honorable mention or two. If you also have favorite build for any of them, sharing that would be appreciated too.

Candidates for Forma:

- Attica
- Drakgoon
- Gorgon Wraith
- Braton Prime
- Burston Prime
- Glaxion
- Penta
- Tetra
- Tiberon
- Sybaris

- akjagara
- akzani
- dex furis
- kohmak
- kraken
- mara detron
- pyrana
- spectra
- Tysis

Mara Detron, I have a 6 Forma Mara and it is honestly hilariously fun to use. Just peppering people down through walls.

Drakgoon, considering the u17 update should increase the damage quite a bit, wondering if the spread mechanic means that its "useful zone" that was mentioned will be larger than other shotguns, Pyrana for pellet count, same reasons.

I love burst-fire guns, mainly because they remind me of the Battle Rifle in Halo. So Burston Prime, Tiberon, and Sybaris have my vote for forma. Also, they are pretty great weapons for mid or long range firefights, even better at getting headshots with burst-fire guns than sniper rifles because snipers have weird scope designs and zoom in way too far for me in this game.

These are obviously not optimal builds for each weapon, but I've used them for a very long time and grew accustomed to them:

Burston Prime is like a status and AOE gun, due to the augment mod for it.

Sybaris is a crit-based burst-fire gun, but can only be fired 5 times before reloading. Fast hands (I don't have Primed Fast Hands) can be pretty helpful because you're going to be reloading constantly.

Tiberon is a raw damage burst-fire gun, but I still wouldn't add a Heavy Caliber on it. Fun Fact: "Tiburon" means Shark in Spanish.

If you noticed, I enjoy punch through mods and find them quite helpful but other players might disagree with me on that. So, replace Shred with a regular fire rate mod or Metal Auger with another elemental damage mod. Also, I don't really like Heavy Caliber with burst-fire guns because the scattering bullets can be detrimental when it comes to precision aiming and getting headshots.

Attica + 5x forma + normal crit/fire rate build, stronger than you'd expect
all the three burst fire weapons burston p, sybaris and tiberon are mid-end tier
Gorgon wraith as honorable mention ._.

Akjagara is pretty much a raw damage akmagnus/akvasto with minimum crit/status
Kohmak and mara detron for teh lulz

everything else not listed, never actually tried so no opinion :/

I don't think I have a "main warframe" like some people do. But there are frames that I just don't play much of at all which are:
  - excal
  - valkyr
  - Banshee
  - Zephyr
  - Limbo
- Ember

It's b/c for Excal, Valkyr, I haven't bothered to figure out the right mods/weapons for melee that's relevant to their ults; For the rest, I'm just not very fond of them or haven't really figured them out.

Otherwise, I do have and play every frame

Also, I don't see why knowing what frames I play is so important for you to know. Maybe aside from something like Mirage, I don't see how warframe choice significantly impacts my preferences in weapons. Everything I mentioned is for keeps. It's just what I'd find more worth my time to work on first that's the question.
