Warframe (Platinum) Purchase Guide

This guide aims to help you decide on what you spend your money / platinum on in Warframe.
TL;DR: The bundles on Steam are not worth it. The main items to spend your Platinum on are slots for Warframes, weapons, etc and occasional boosters.
Continue reading for more in depth info.

Price calculation is based on the regular Platinum prices in EUR and USD. Though we suggest you only buy Platinum with 50% or 75% off, since you can’t earn/rely on these discounts, we base the mentioned prices on the regular Platinum prices. Want to get Platinum for free? Check out our Platinum Farming Guide.

Prime Access

Since discounts don’t work on Prime Access, we don’t suggest buying these unless you’re going for the (exclusive) cosmetics. The Primes can relatively easily be earned in-game. Alternatively, you can farm Platinum in-game and buy the new Primes from other players. If you do this, we suggest waiting till at least a month after their release so prices will have dropped due to market saturation.

In-game Market

Warframes

Whether a Warframe is worth the purchase is based on the way to acquire it and if you enjoy that method / have access to that method already. Therefor we are simply going to mention the converted prices along with a quick note. Please check the Wiki if you wish to know how to acquire a certain Warframe, then decide if the price is something you are willing to pay to “pay to skip”. Keep in mind that if there is a Prime version of a Warframe that you’re interested in, it is often much cheaper to buy the Prime version from another player. Though you could also farm for the Prime version yourself of course.
