What are the best Archwings in Warframe and what purpose do they serve?

Archwings are used in Warframe to traverse environments that would be very difficult or impossible to do by foot. Some of these environments include space, open worlds, and underwater. They are required for certain missions in space, but also very useful for traveling around big areas when available.

There are currently only 5 archwings in Warframe. These archwings come with differing stats and offer different abilities that are very helpful in certain situations. 

5. Odonata

Odonata, the first archwing.

The Odonata is the first archwing that players receive in the game. It is the starter archwing which comes with decent abilities to aid the player during combat. It is best used for disrupting and diverting enemy fire. It may also be used for defensive purposes, but is not the best when compared with other archwings.

Archwing stats:

  • Health: 300 (900 at max rank)

  • Shield: 300 (900 at max rank)

  • Armor: 100

  • Energy: 100 (180 at max rank)

  • Flight Speed: 1.00

3. Elytron

The explosive Elytron.

The Elytron is a durable archwing with offensive capabilities in the form of explosives. This is a really good archwing for those who want to deal Area of Effect damage with its explosives. Very useful for dealing with numerous enemies and crowd control.

2. Itzal

The BL(ITZAL), the speediest archwing that can blitz the opposition.

One of the most useful archwings as it provides the most mobility out of all of them. The Itzal allows the players to blitz pass enemies as it is able to go invisible, teleport short distances, and unleash attack drones. It also comes with the ability to form black holes that pull both enemies and loot towards the user. This archwing is best used for quickly moving through large areas, minor crowd control, and looting purposes.

1. Amesha

The guardian angel, the Amesha.

The Amesha is a defensive archwing which does its job really well. It offers abilities that range from diverting enemy fire to healing allies.

Additionally, it can make missions like Mobile Defense very easy as its abilities can defend objective points from enemy fire.

Archwing stats:

  • Health: 400 (1200 at max rank)
