Amp 101

Warframe Amp guide

Amps are build using three parts – Prism, Scaffold and Brace. Prism for primary fire, Scaffold for secondary fire and Brace for passive stats. Main use of Amp is to kill the bosses like Eidolon, Profit Taker and Ropalolyst.
For reaching MR30 you might want to make one Amp for each Prism, as prism only count for ranking-up

There are 7 Prism, 7 Scaffold and 7 Brace, so technically 7x7x7 = 343 combinations.. but dont worry you dont need all of them.
