Credits Credits64‍ are the standard currency in WARFRAME. They are used to purchase Blueprints, Equipment, and some Weapons from the market. They are used in the Foundry as a cost to create an item from a blueprint. Credits are also used in the fusion and transmutation of Mods.

Every time a player completes a mission, they will normally be given a credit reward dependent upon the difficulty of the mission. Players also receive a team credit bonus equal to one tenth the base mission bonus multiplied by the number of teammates (excluding yourself) in the game. Alert missions often come with a high credit reward which is added to the mission's normal credit reward.

Credits can also be obtained from killing enemies, breaking containers, and searching lockers. Survival missions can offer bonus Credit Caches in small amounts on completion of the mission. They can also be gained by selling ModsWeapons, Warframes, Sentinels, Boss Sigils, Titan Extractors, and blueprints from a player's inventory. Keep in mind that while earned Mastery Ranks from Affinity on Warframes, Weapons, and Sentinels will be retained if sold, the following investments will be lost even if rebuilt:

Resources, Appearance items, Void Keys, Lenses, and Archwing Equipment cannot be sold. Credits can be gained with real world money directly via the two Credit Bundles: Frugal and High Roller.

Farming tips

These are based on opinions and may not be true. These should be viewed as advice unless proven undoubtedly true. Check comments for confirmation.

  • The Index on Neptune is one of the most lucrative game modes in Warframe, as it is specifically designed to gain large amounts of credits via wagering. Choosing the High Risk investment gives Credits64200,000 for every round won.
  • Because the Sortie timer and the daily login timer are independent of each other (about 7 hours apart), you can exploit this to complete the first two Sortie missions, then complete the third Sortie after the daily login timer resets for an easy doubled first win bonus reward of Credits64100,000.
  • Credits can be gained in large amounts by playing Dark Sectors, especially if the Clan or Alliance controlling the solar rail offers a low or no credit tax rate. Infested spawn at higher numbers than other factions for the most part, which means Eximus enemies also will, so the drop rate for OberonIcon272 Oberon parts will be higher. These parts can be sold to add to the additional credits of completing the mission and through pickups.
    • Hieracon on Pluto is one of the fastest ways to farm credits. Since it's an excavation mission, extracting after the first excavator has finished will yield Credits6420,000 in under 5 minutes. However, bear in mind that defending the extractor and keeping the power up may be hard for a lone player, so it's advised to bring someone along.
    • Sechura on Pluto, and Seimeni and Gabii on Ceres will give Credits6420,000 after the first 5 minutes/waves, extracting in the 5th minute/wave under few runs (3 or 4) will give high amounts of credits, Bear in mind the more people you have in your squad, the more credits you get (increasing by approximately Credits641,000 per additional player).
  • Battle pays from either the Grineer or Corpus as part of Invasions and infested outbreaks often yield high amounts of credits for a generally easier mission as the faction you are allied with will supply troops to assist you.
  • Comb through your inventory occasionally. You may find things you don't want and can sell items such as Warframe component blueprints; the credits can quickly add up.
    • This also applies to your mods. Occasionally you should sell all your duplicate common mods. This can also stack up to quite a number of credits.


  • One credit is equal to 0.0015 U.S. cents.
  • The Credit seems to be of Corpus design.
  • According to Cephalon Cordylon, Credit rewards are distributed by the Lotus for the successful completion of a Mission. These Credits are obtained by various means, whether through the resale of information obtained during espionage or the acquisition of goods obtained through remnant Corpus or Grineer outposts. On rare occasion the Lotus is forced to keep such discoveries secret, but such valuable data often comes with its own benefits.
