Just go with the $20 founder's pack and get plenty of plat. Just don't waste it on anything but slots for weapons and frames. They are the only thing that MUST be gained through plat. Everything else can be gained without, given enough effort.
love fang(note: easily to kill off all corpus if you add even a low level electrical mod to it..can perma stun bosses too) for its attack speed perfect blending weapon. however there are three attacks per animation so it makes it impossible to use for ur jump attack thingy that you can do with duel zoren to cover almost a whole defense map if timed right. i love both of these weapons and can't say either one is better than the other cause they both fit different roles. fang= attack / zoren= speed runs
I've used a lot of melee weapons, zorren, scindo, dual ether, gallatine, to name a few. Personally, yeah, the zorren has a great attack speed, the best you can get without mods, but I didn't realize how low the damage was when I went back to my dual ether. The galatine isn't half bad, but when you are going on stealth missions like me, it sticks out like an elephant in the room. Plus the galatine makes noise. The scindo: It does a fair amount of damage, and the attack speed isn't great, but it is good if you like speedrunning, or if you like going rambo. The whip (Update 11 I forgot the name of it) is actually not the best, but not the worst. it isn't the best for accuracy, because you have to have a close to still enemy to hit it with if you don't have good aim. It only has 2 whips before you go into the more powerful 'ending' hit. Really, the only perk of it is that it does electric damage, straight out of the foundry.
