Warframe Glaive Prime Build 2024

The Glaive Prime is the Primed variant of the original Glaive, featuring an increase in damage, Critical Chance, Status Chance, and attack speed.

This weapon allows you to deal swift attacks up close to enemies or to throw the weapon to deal damage from a distance.

Read more about the above mentioned builds in detail:

1) Exploding Glaive Build (Throw Build)

Exploding Build

The Exploding Glaive Build is a throw build for the Glaive Prime which focuses more on using the heavy attack after throwing the weapon.

The mods in this build further improve the damage from heavy attacks, boosting the explosion damage of the Glaive Prime even further.

This is perfect for destroying groups of enemies in a large radius, making it one of the best weapons for taking out larger groups of enemies.

2) Bouncing Glaive Build (Pure Damage Build)

Bouncing Build

The Bouncing Glaive Builds allows you to throw the Glaive Prime and cause it to bounce between multiple enemies before returning.

At any time, you can cause the blade to explode with a heavy attack, causing damage in an area around the Glaive Prime.

This gives you more time to trigger an explosion while also hitting multiple enemies close to each other before finishing them off with a blast.

3) Gladiator Build (Melee Build)

Gladiator Build

The Gladiator Build for Glaive Prime focuses on more melee fighting than throwing the weapon but also allows you to deal a good amount of damage both ways.

Utilizing the Gladiator mods, we aim to make the most from its set bonus, which increases the Critical Chance of the weapon as the Combo Multiplier rises.

When it comes to using this build, you will mostly be rushing into fights with enemies while slashing at them to deal more damage as you increase your Combo Multiplier.


The Glaive Prime is a versatile weapon and can be used alongside a secondary weapon if you choose to do so for a more flexible way to deal damage.

Its throw attack deals a good amount of damage while causing an explosion and is extremely useful when dealing with groups of enemies.

This weapon is both agile and powerful, making it great for almost any situation be it up close or from a distance in a fight.
