We’ve all been there before. You’ve created a brand-new account in Warframe. You’re about to pick your starting character. And then Mittens, you’re adorable but needy cat walks across your keyboard, selecting exactly the wrong Warframe for your Tenno’s play style. When that happens, you immediately want to know how to delete a Warframe character.
Unfortunately, this question has a pretty simple answer: You can’t. At least not easily. There are a few things you can do to compensate for your unruly cat’s behavior though.
Farm for New Weapons and Warframes
This is probably your best bet. If you started the game picking the wrong Warframe, you can easily find the blueprints for the other starting suits as you play through missions. Alternatively, you can spend credits at the market to purchase them rather than grinding to find the needed parts and recipes.
This is your best option for a couple of reasons. First off, it’s a good idea to get comfortable with a bunch of different play styles. The more you understand how Warframe works, the better a time you’ll have. Who knows, maybe you’ve picked a Warframe you didn’t want, and in your quest to find a new one, you realize that you like your accidental selection after all!
Also, fighting bad guys, defeating bosses, and grinding for gear is the essence of Digital Extremes’ game. Because you’re going to do all of those things a lot, you might as well keep moving forward instead of trying to start again.
Ask for a Reset
Though they don’t always grant them, in some cases Digital Extremes have been known to reset accounts if requested. Their bar for a reset is pretty high, but with good reason. The last thing they want is for a troll to hijack an account and have it reset against the wishes of the actual owner.
However, if you have a compelling reason, and enough evidence to show the account belongs to you, a reset might be possible. If you decide a reset is what you absolutely need, head over to Digital Extremes’ Support Page and file a ticket asking for a do-over.
Create a New Account
This is the nuclear option. If you absolutely can’t stand the state of your current account, and Digital Extremes doesn’t seem to want to grant you a reset, you can always abandon your old account and create a new one.
Yes, this is as drastic as it seems. It will require you to create a new account name, a new nickname, and you have to use a different email address as well. However, once you’ve set it up, you’ll have a clean slate to start over. When all else fails, maybe just starting fresh is the way you want to go.
There you have it. As far as how to delete a Warframe character is concerned, there isn’t really a clean way to do it. Instead, why don’t you keep playing and check out some of our other guides to help you on your way!
