Warframe Platinum Farming Methods Guide (2024)

Almost all games have a special in-game currency that allows you to purchase certain goods or speed up your progress when playing and so does Warframe.

In Warframe, you have Platinum, which is the premium currency used in the game for various things such as making purchases, speeding up crafting, or boosting your progress.

While Platinum is a premium currency, not everyone has to spend real money to get it as you can earn it in the game for free, mainly through trading.

Platinum can also be purchased through the in-game Market, which you can access while you are inside your Orbiter. (This will redirect you to the site or open it through Steam)

You may also purchase Prime Access or Prime Vault items, including Exclusive Bundles which usually add some Platinum to their packages.

2) Trading With Players

Trading items with the players for Platinum in the game

Most players will tend to farm items such as Mods, Rivens, Prime Parts, and more to sell them to other players, which is often how Platinum is traded amongst players.

For trading with other players and posting or searching for things to buy and sell, you can check out the Warframe Market website as these have some of the best prices.

With sites like Warframe Market, you can post items you want to sell or view what others are selling and can easily communicate with them using the whisper feature.

Another way to trade with players is to chat in the Trading Chat channel, which is where players can post items that they are willing to buy or sell. (You can link items in the chat, including Rivens)

3) Joining Warframe Contests

From time to time, Warframe will occasionally have contests that let players join in and these have a lot of fun activities for you to do besides playing the game.

Players who win these contests will be rewarded with Platinum, which comes in different amounts depending on which place they are in, such as 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place.

4) Watching Livestreams and Streamers

If you’re the type who enjoys watching live streams or loves to witness other players streaming their gameplay and more, you can resort to these and sometimes get freebies.

During Devstreams, you can participate and get a chance to get free Platinum or other rewards, and streamers often give giveaways during or at the end of their stream.

Becoming a Merchant For Platinum in Warframe

Aside from enjoying the story, grinding, and everything else, you can farm certain items that are valuable to players that you can sell for Platinum.

Once you have items that are worth selling, you can either post in the Trade Chat or a Warframe Trading Site so people know what you have for sale.

All you need to do after is wait for someone to message you and the two of you can meet up and trade at a Clan Dojo.

The following are items worth selling in Warframe:

1) Prime Parts

Prime Parts have always been one of the most sought-after items in the game and players would open relics by grinding Void Fissures.

Players will often purchase these in sets or target an item they are missing, making it easy to sell off new as well as old Prime Parts.

2) Riven Mods

Grinding for Riven Mods and unlocking them can be tedious but once you get a good roll, these can be worth a fortune in Platinum.

Depending on in demand a Riven Mod is as well as how good the roll turns out to be, you can sell it easily to players who want it.

3) Arcanes

Weapons and Warframes can often be improved by slotting Arcanes in them but some are harder to farm than others, which makes them good for trading.

If you have some of the rarer Arcanes available that you don’t need, you can trade these for Platinum to get a good amount after farming them.

4) Kuva Lich/Tent Sisters

Kuva Liches and Tenet Sisters that have been collected may be sold to other players, which allows them to challenge them later on.

Players will be able to see what weapons or stats these enemies have and can challenge them for a sure chance to get the weapon or turn them into an ally.

This makes them valuable for trading, especially if you get a good weapon or if the unit can become a valuable asset for later.

5) Rare Mods

Players will always be on the lookout for Rare Mods that they can use for their builds whether new or old and these are often in demand for new players.

Farming Rare mods is a good way to prepare a stock for sale and once you have enough, you can start trading these for Platinum.

6) Legendary Mods

Primed Mods and other Legendary Mods are some of the best mods you can get but these are often only available for the Void Merchant, which makes them good for selling.

Keep in mind that trading Legendary Mods can cost a lot when it comes to Credits and it will be important to have a lot. (Often costs 1 million Credits to trade)

7) Ayatan Sculptures

These are obtainable as rewards from Sorties, Arbitration Missions, Ayatan Missions from Maroo and can even be picked up during missions if you find them.

Players need these to exchange them for Endo and will sort to purchase these sculptures (best if slotted with Ayatan Stars) for Platinum.

8) Requiem Mods

Requiem Mods became a thing when Kuva Liches were introduced to the game and these allowed players to get Kuva Weapons.

Later on, Tenet Weapons were added to the game and these could be obtained after challenging a Tenet Sister, where both of these weapon types required you to have Requiem Mods.

This makes these important to obtain if you want to get such weapons, making them valuable for players who plan on getting them.

9) Void Relics

Getting your hands on Prime Parts requires that you have Void Relics that can be opened when you are doing Void Fissures and sometimes these become vaulted, making them impossible to get.

Players can sell both vaulted relics and new ones to others as these will be used to farm certain Prime Parts that they are after.

Platinum UsesUses of Platinum in the game (Warframe)

While Platinum is essentially used to purchase items from the Market, it also has a lot of other uses such as rushing buildings in the foundry and for buying cosmetic items.

Players usually tend to sell items for Platinum in-game so they have a good stock to use whenever they need to buy something or make quick progress.

Below are some of the uses for Platinum as well as how much you will need for each transaction within the game.

1) Purchasing Items From Market

The in-game market in Warframe has a lot to offer from players, including premade Warframes, Weapons, and more.

Using Platinum, you can purchase these, and they will go directly to your inventory, saving you the time of farming resources and waiting for crafting times.

Some of the more popular purchases for players who wish to progress are boosters such as the Affinity, Credit, Resource, or Resource Drop Chance Boosters.

2) Purchasing Equipment Slots

There is a limit to how many items you can have per type in your arsenal, but this limit can be exceeded by purchasing additional slots.

This will allow you to widen your collection of Warframes, Weapons, Companions, and more so that you have a bigger arsenal to choose from.

Currently, these are the possible slots that can be purchased:

  • 1x Warframe Slot – 20 Platinum
  • 2x Weapon slots – (12 Platinum
  • 2x Operator Amp Slots – 12 Platinum
  • 2x Archwing Weapon Slots – 12 Platinum
  • 1x Vehicle Slot (Archwings and K-Drives) – 12 Platinum
  • 2x Robotic Companion Slots – 12 Platinum
  • 2x Railjack Armament Slots – 12 Platinum
  • 2x Railjack Armament Slots – 12 Platinum
  • 1x Necramech Slot – 20 Platinum
  • 1x Railjack Crew Member Slot – 20 Platinum
  • 3x Riven Mods Slots – 60 Platinum
  • 1x Loadout Slot – 20 Platinum

3) Rushing Foundry Crafting

One of the downsides to building everything is that there are specific items that may take longer than most to craft.

Those items that are crafted in the foundry do not have to wait for a long time and you can simply speed things up using Platinum.

Once you have used Platinum to rush the building process, it will instantly be complete and you will be able to claim it as soon as possible.

4) Purchasing Items from Players

Most players in the game will want a good stock of Platinum and a way for them to earn it is by selling the excess items that they have obtained.

You can use Platinum to get an item that you currently do not wish to grind for and may instead buy it from another player.

This will save you the time of having to go out and collect several resources and blueprints and will help out the other players in return as they earn from it.

5) Name Changing

Sometimes using the same old name can be dull and you might want to change it from time to time, which can be done with Platinum

You may use platinum to change your character’s name on the official site for 200 Platinum and may even do the same to rename a Clan for the same amount.

Changing a Clan Emblem will cost you 150 Platinum and for those who are a bit picky with their companions, you can change their name at the cost of 15 Platinum.


While almost everything in Warframe can be obtained by grinding for them, the use of Platinum can speed things up so you can do more as you play.

There are also certain items such as boosters that can help you progress faster as you play the game, which is a good thing to save up for when you can.

Platinum is much easier to obtain once you can farm items that are worth selling and there is always someone out there who will need them.
