Along with the in-game tutorials, these guides are here to help you navigate Warframe.

SELECTING YOUR LANGUAGE

When you first launch Warframe, it will check for updates using the launcher. In this launcher, you can specify the language you would like Warframe to run in by opening the language drop-down list in the top-right corner. Selecting the correct option will make all text in the game localized to your native language!

CHOOSING YOUR WARFRAME

After the introductory cinematic, you’ll be given a choice of three Warframes. Your Warframe functions as a kind of exo-armor suit that protects you from enemies and provides you with unique powers. The Warframe you choose will greatly impact your first missions, so choose wisely! Not to worry, this selection is not final. In time you will be able to construct or purchase additional Warframes to master!

Volt can create and harness electrical elements. This is a high-damage Warframe perfect for players who want a potent alternative to gun-play.

Shock Launches a shocking projectile. It stuns and deals high damage to a single target and chains damage to nearby enemies.
Speed Volt energizes his body and nearby Warframes, giving them increased speed and dexterity for a short time.
Electric Shield Volt deploys an obstacle of energy, providing cover in any situation.
Discharge Paralyze nearby hostiles with a damaging electric charge, this also shocks approaching enemies.
These robust Warframes will serve you well during your exploits and are capable of completing any mission. Remember you can still choose other Warframes to test out other play-styles and experiment with new powers.

YOUR FIRST MISSION

Your first mission will teach you several basic mechanics of the game, as well as have you choose your initial equipment loadout. Like your Warframe selection, these choices are not permanent; there are over a hundred different weapons for you to find and add to your arsenal!

CHOOSING A MELEE WEAPON

Your melee weapons allow you to perform special stealth attacks on enemies that are unaware of your presence. If you are able to perform a stealth attack on an enemy, a special context action will be available (Default: E). Stealth attacks will deal massive damage, killing weaker enemies outright. You may find missions easier to complete by eliminating enemies stealthily before they can raise the alarm.

CHOOSING A SECONDARY WEAPON

Your sidearm may not be as strong as your primary loadout weapon, but has a separate ammo reserve, and can be used while you’re in a near-death bleedout state. Properly modded, your secondary weapon may become the deadliest weapon at your disposal!

The Lato is a pistol that deals average damage but is highly accurate thanks to its low recoil.
The silent Kunai travel in an arc when thrown, allowing you to hit enemies that are behind cover without raising an alarm.

CHOOSING A PRIMARY WEAPON

Your final selection will be your primary weapon. With a primary weapon, your loadout will be complete; try a weapon that covers the shortcomings of your other weapons so you can handle most situations you’ll come across.
