If you have been playing Veilbreaker in Warframe since it launched as I have. You will only just now be able to build or use the Aegrit that has been locked behind Chipper. Unless you bought the Veilbreaker pack at launch to avoid the long wait. But, if you have been looking for a build to use for your Aegrit, you have come to the right place.
A Multi-Purpose Aegrit Build
The Aegrit is a very strong secondary weapon with a few drawbacks. For starters is its very low ammo pool. Which considering the current ammo economy in Warframe, I recommend using the carrier companion since its Ammo Case mod converts ammo for free. Here is the build I am currently running for them:
Do not try and build these revolving around a certain status effect considering they are good for one thing: Blowing up crowds of enemies. These deal extraordinarily high damage that you should focus on just the blast damage and then make a choice of arcane. I use merciless for the additional damage you will accumulate with it very quickly.
But when I use them with a Protea or Harrow, I changed to Cascadia Overcharged for the additional 300% more critical choice. I did not have much luck with these in Steel Path missions aside from infested and corpus enemies. But one thing is for sure, Aegrit is definitely a fun weapon to use.
