What are the best Warframe Shawzin songs? It didn't take Digital Extremes' legion of space ninjas long before the usual suspects were adapted to their new three-stringed instrument. Naturally the Shawzin song for Megalovania from Undertale was quickly committed to the sci-fi shredder, but there's already a treasure trove of other tracks to discover.

Warframe's Shawzin arrived in the game as part of the Saint of Altra update that also saw the release of the rapid new Gauss Frame. But, after you've had your fill of zooming around, you can now take a break with your new axe, now no longer just a decorative item. So, here, we're going to get you started with how to get Shawzin in Warframe and collected a few of our favourites to get your songwriting juices flowing.

Warframe: How to get Shawzin

Now that Shawzin is no longer just a decoration but a playable emote, too, you're going to want to know how you can get your hands on it. There are a few different variations available on the Market: Dawn, Dax, Mimica, and Nelumbo. Mimica can change colour based on the appearance of the Frame playing it and Nelumbo offers a unique sound.

To play the instrument you need to activate the Shawzin emote in your gear wheel. You'll know this has worked as your character will kneel down and hold the instrument, with the musical interface appearing.

When it comes to how to use Shawzin in Warframe, this Warframe wiki guide offers a useful primer on PC controls, scales, and transcription. It also offers sample songs such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Happy Birthday; pulling out the standard, real-life acoustic just won't cut it at parties anymore.

Shawzin songs in Warframe are transcribed as numbers, letters, and symbols. Each song can be manually recorded for up to four minutes with 100 notes. With practice the following song codes will make more sense but, put simply, the first number corresponds with the scale on which the song is played and every note consists of three characters, which are case-sensitive.

Warframe

Warframe's latest update⁠—Saint Of Altra⁠—is all about contrast. On one hand, you've got Gauss, the latest playable Frame. He's basically The Flash, but with more rocket launchers. He zooms around so quickly that enemies just drop dead in his wake, and crashing into walls causes the wall (and nearby enemies) to explode instead of him. And the icing on the cake? His signature weapons are a plasma-rocket rifle and a pair of homing missile pistols that reload faster when he's sprinting. A fun addition for the twitchiest of space ninjas.

But if all that running around is just too much, you can sit down and play some music. Previously available as a purely decorative item, the Shawzin (inspired by the Japanese Shamisen) is a three-stringed instrument that can now be played through a new emote. You can record songs (of up to 100 notes) for playback later, or even challenge yourself by playing the note chart, Guitar Hero style.

Playing the Shawzin appears initially simple, but if you want to play anything complex on it, there's a lot of work to be done learning its three-string, three-fret controls, especially as you have to quickly change scale to hit the full range of notes. 

The official Warframe wiki has a guide on what notes map to which inputs, and unsurprisingly players are already learning how to play whatever they can on it. Here, YouTuber "DNexus" strums along to Boney M's classic disco hit, Rasputin.

It's strange to see how far Warframe has come. From a threadbare shooter with only a handful of enemy types to a weird universe where space ninjas jam to old Earth disco tracks.

Also included in the Saint Of Altra update is a greatly expanded Disruption game-type. Players can now take Disruption missions in a far wider range of environments, and Grineer Ghouls (previously only unearthed for events near Cetus) are available as a standard enemy type there. There's also some new rewards to earn there, including the components to assemble Gauss and his weaponry.

There's also a new fashion-sharing system, a new skin for Harrow, and some new Infested dojo decorations. You can see the the full list of what the update adds here. Warframe is free-to-play, and you can grab it via Steam or its official page here.

Warframe

Surprise! You can now play the guitar in Warframe.

Quietly introduced with the latest PC update this weekend, the instruments themselves, called Shawzin, aren't new to the game per se, but this is the first time the items have been fully playable.

As you might well expect, the Warframe community has welcomed the musical additions with open arms and already Shawzin serenades are already popping up on Reddit and social media, such as this version of Despacito, and this absurdly impressive rendition of Through The Fire And The Flames (thanks, Kotaku):

Warframe - Wintermaker
This week on PC, Gauss shifts his kinetic Abilities into overdrive along with a convoy of new gameplay, customizations and rewards! Face some of the toughest enemies in the Origin System with six new Disruption Mode missions, let the Void consume you with the Harrow Reliquary Collection, show off your shredding skills with a playable Shawzin and more!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WjCqzeP5f8&feature=youtu.be

SPRINT INTO ACTION AS GAUSS

High speed, low drag — Gauss is turbo-charged and ready for rapid engagement. Survive the new Disruption Mode expansion to build this supersonic Warframe.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=gb9JKmJ5-6g


PASSIVE
Never stop moving. Keeping Gauss in motion generates an electrical current that charges his Speed Gauge, helping Shields recharge up to 80% faster, and decreasing recharge delay up to 80%.

MACH RUSH
Burst into a hyper-sprint to bowl over enemies and charge the battery, or crash into solid objects to generate a powerful shockwave. Hold to rush continuously.

KINETIC PLATING
Generate armor plating that converts a portion of absorbed Kinetic Damage into Energy, and protects Gauss from being staggered or knocked down. Damage Resistance is relative to battery level.

THERMAL SUNDER
Siphon kinetic energy from the area, charging the battery and inflicting Cold Status on nearby enemies. Hold reverses the process, draining the battery and inflicting Heat Status on nearby enemies.

REDLINE
Push Gauss’ battery beyond the redline, supercharging his Abilities and setting Fire Rate, Attack Speed, Reload Speed, and Holster Rate into overdrive. When past the redline, bolts of arcing electricity dance periodically from Gauss, exploding en masse when the ability is deactivated.

DISRUPTION MODE EXPANSION
Alad V, ever the enterprising businessman, has sold his tech to anyone with Credits to spare. As a result, Disruption Missions are popping up all over the Origin System bringing new rewards for willing Tenno like valuable Kuva from the new Kuva Fortress Disruption Node.



New Missions/Tilesets
• More Disruption nodes are appearing in unexpected places, including the Corpus Outpost, Grineer Galleon, Grineer Settlement, Grineer Kuva Fortress, and Orokin Moon

New Challenges
• Grineer Enemies join the fray with a twist! Vay Hek’s grotesque collection of Ghouls take the place of Alad V’s Amalgams. Hold them off as they try to wrestle back control of the Terminals scattered around the mission.

New Rewards
• Earn Kuva in Kuva Fortress Disruption Missions or uncover the new Universal Syndicate Medallion, found in all Disruption nodes (except Mars) to gain 1,000 Standing with any of the core 6 Syndicates

Note: The Sacrifice Quest must be completed to unlock Disruption Mission Nodes for the Kuva Fortress and Lua.

TENNO REINFORCEMENTS
Feel the need for speed with these brand-new Weapons and Customizations.

ACCELTRA
Never let a pit stop interrupt the action with Gauss' signature Primary Weapon!



AKARIUS
Gauss' signature Secondary packs a serious concussive punch.



GAUSS MAG HELMET
A uniquely-styled alternate helmet for Gauss.

ALTRA SYANDANA
Sleek and streamlined, Gauss' signature Syandana is sure to turn heads as you speed by!



HARROW RELIQUARY
Bound by void and will, Harrow's twilight heart pulses within the sacred casket of a body reinvented. Wield malicious spirits and arcane power with the Harrow Reliquary Collection, and renounce heresy with the Etheria Armor Set and Renuntio Spear!
