Q: How can Support help me and when can I expect an answer?
A: Digital Extremes has a full-time Support team that works to solve in-game problems for our players. They are the team to consult about almost everything.

If you are unsure whether your issue is right for Support, a Support ticket is still a great place to start. Our Support team will direct you to the right place if they are ever unable to help!
Support receives a high volume of tickets, so depending on the nature of the issue, it can take about two weeks to receive a response. You are welcome to check out the Warframe Wikia and ask questions on the community forums. These resources are full of useful information!
Q: Where can I tell a Dev about my concerns about changes made to Warframe?
A: We welcome constructive feedback and always check the forums to get a sense of how our players feel about Warframe. It’s amazing that our players have cared so much about Warframe’s development since the very beginning! The public forums are the best place to share your feedback. We love to see constructive posts and the community’s responses to those posts. It helps us understand what we need to improve.
The Warframe Team shares our players’ passion for Warframe, so we know it's easy for discussions to become heated. That's why we use the Community Guidelines as an outline for keeping feedback constructive. We want to know how our players feel so we can continue to make Warframe the best it can be, and constructive feedback is the best way to help us do that. Please read the Community Guidelines here if you haven’t already!
Q: I’m concerned about an in-game ban or suspension. Who should I speak to?
A: All in-game bans and suspensions are handled by our Support Team. If you would like clarification about an in-game ban or suspension, please make a Support ticket and a member of our team will review the reason for the penalty with you. They might not lift the penalty if you broke any of our rules. You can make a Support ticket here.
Here are links to the documents our Support team uses to moderate:
Q: I’m concerned about a forum moderator. Who should I speak to?
A: Our moderators moderate in accordance with the Community Guidelines. Please read the Community Guidelines here if you haven’t already. If you disagree with a Moderator’s decision, please contact the Moderator directly in a PM. He or she will be able to outline the reason for your penalty with you.
You are encouraged to report your PM conversation with that Moderator to [DE]Marcus if at any point the Moderator does not act in accordance with the Community Guidelines. Like all players, Moderators must adhere to the Community Guidelines.

Q: Where can I find a retired Glyph?
Unfortunately, we are no longer able to distribute Glyphs which have been retired from Warframe.
Q: Can I move my Playstation / Xbox One / Nintendo Switch account to PC? Can I move my PC account to Playstation / Xbox One / Nintendo Switch?
A: Warframe accounts can’t be transferred between platforms. There are technical barriers that prevent us from being able to move accounts between console and PC. In the past, we offered account migration between PC and PS4. We later did the same for PC to Xbox One and PC to Nintendo Switch. In those cases, we were able to work with different companies to make account migration available for a limited time in celebration of Warframe’s launch on new platforms, but account migration is not available regularly.
We don’t have plans to make account migration available again in the future, but you are welcome to start another account! We don’t have any problem with players having accounts on multiple platforms.
Q: Why doesn’t Warframe offer cross-platform play?
A: The differences between platforms prevent us from offering cross-platform play. The updates between PC and console don’t align, for example. There are also differences between items on Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. With these nuances in mind, we don’t have any plans to offer cross-platform play in the future.
Q: Where did my forum thread go?
A: If a thread seems to have disappeared, there are a few possibilities. It might have been moved to a different topic or hidden. It’s also possible that it was merged into another thread. To keep the forums organized, our Moderators will move off-topic threads to the appropriate subforum. When your topic is moved, a link to its new location will be available for a day.
Forum threads that violate the Community Guidelines will be hidden. A Moderator will send you a private message about your forum thread if you are being issued a warning or if they feel you need a reminder to adhere to the Community Guidelines. If you haven’t read the Community Guidelines, please read them here!
Forum Moderators will also merge multiple threads about the same topic into one thread. This helps our team gather feedback. We don’t want to miss details, especially about pressing issues, so we keep topics together. Our team also sets up master forum threads for major updates to streamline the feedback, so if a feedback thread related to the update is shared outside of the master thread, it will be moved there.
Q: How do I join the Guides of the Lotus?
A: The Guides of the Lotus program has formally retired. We are so grateful to all the volunteers for the time and care they offered the Warframe community! You can read more about their retirement and related community engagement changes here.
Q: Where can I share my concepts, quest ideas, and fan art?
A: The best place to share your concepts, quest ideas, and art is on the forums! There’s a subforum for just about any idea. Megan and Rebecca check out fan concepts and fan art every week and share our community’s amazing work on Prime Time. One of these subforums might be a great place to share your idea:
Q: Why are some TennoGen items missing on consoles?
A: The main reason not all TennoGen has arrived on consoles yet is the difference between purchasing TennoGen through Steam on PC and purchasing TennoGen with Platinum on consoles.
All TennoGen starts with Steam on PC. That’s where designs are submitted by TennoGen creators and how we distribute items to PC Tenno. Since Steam distribution isn’t possible on consoles, it takes time to set up TennoGen on consoles. We need to work with each TennoGen creator and each console’s unique market system to set everything up.
Now that we have set up a method for buying TennoGen with Platinum on consoles, we know how to integrate new TennoGen items sooner. That’s why we are usually able to release new TennoGen items to consoles soon after they arrive on PC. The TennoGen items that were released before we arranged a method for buying TennoGen with Platinum on consoles are now being integrated. That said, we still need to work closely with the each TennoGen creator, and that takes time.
The goal is to have all TennoGen items available on consoles so everyone can enjoy player-created items! There are just differences between platforms that we need to account for. We’ll keep working with TennoGen creators to bring new and older TennoGen to consoles!
Q: The server is down! What do I do?
A: Be sure to check the forums to see if other players are experiencing the same issue. Our team will post in News & Events when we are made aware to let you know we are looking for a solution! If other players are not experiencing the issue and it persists for you, please contact Support! There might be a problem on your end, and our Support team will do everything they can to help you find a solution.

Q: Are events like Operation: Plague Star and Acolytes coming back?
A: We don’t have a set time line for all events to return, but most will, especially if the community really enjoyed them! You can also count on us planning new weapons and cosmetics for Warframe nonstop. Whether or not an event is in-bound, we’ll keep the content coming!
Q: Is Excalibur Prime ever coming back?
A: No, he’s not. Excalibur Prime was offered to Warframe’s founders who believed in Warframe early in its development. There would be no Warframe without their support, and Excalibur Prime is how we acknowledge their invaluable contribution. Excalibur Prime was offered once and represents that history, so he will not be released again.
We are delighted that Warframe has grown and that our community is so unique and amazing. Even as we remember that our founders are Warframe’s foundation, Warframe is defined by all Tenno. We will continue to make more great Warframes, Prime Warframes, and content for all of our players!
Q: What happened to the Community Inbox?
The Community Inbox has been retired, because it was no longer an effective way of communicating with our players. If you would like to contact us, please use the information above to locate the best place to direct your questions, ideas, or concerns.
