Operation Buried Debts is Warframe’s Latest Update and Available Now on PC

Digital Extremes has announced the release of the latest Warframe update; Operation Buried Debts. Available now on PC — coming to PS4, Switch and Xbox One later — Operation Buried Debts is the first, time-limited Community Event of 2019.

In the update, Tenno will have to band together to “unlock hidden secrets and dark lore.” 

To thwart the bitter cold and the dread it brings, the 39th Warframe Hildryn arrives in heavy armor and shield-based powers.

Operation Buried Debts takes place in a cold, snowy region of Fortuna’s Orb Vallis.

According to Digital Extremes;

Operation Buried Debts poses a disturbing new wrinkle to the evolving story of Fortuna’s debt-internment colony.

Following the original expansion and the subsequent update, The Profit-Taker, Tenno are thrust into a new storyline that re-defines the cynical deal Nef Anyo holds over the Solaris United Faction.

Teaming up with your fellow Tenno won’t just be a good idea, it will be a must!

In addition to the new storyline, Pase 1 of the melee revamp is included with Operation Buried Debts. With the changes, melee is faster and smoother. Players will be able to instantly switch melee weapons and can continue their melee combo after interrupting it with gunfire, dodging, bullet jumping or parkour. 

For more details on Operation Buried Debts, watch the video below.

Included with this Community Event is the brand-new and 39th Warframe; Hildryn. Hildryn draws power from its Shields in order to use abilities and uses Energy to recharge. By taking Hildryn into the air, Tenno can rain down destruction with a range of offensive tools.


  • Balefire: Charge and launch devastating bolts of fire.
  • Shield Pillage: Pillage a percentage of Shields and Armor of nearby enemies to replenish her own Shields and Overshields.
  • Haven: Create a Shield aura around allies. Enemies that approach Shielded allies will take damage.
  • Aegis Storm: Take the skies and rain Balefire rockets down on the enemy. Nearby enemies are blasted into the air where they will create an Energy Orb every few seconds. When Shields runs out the enemies are smashed into the ground.
  • Unlock Rewards: Earn unique items throughout the Operation such as an Emblem, Sigil, Amalgam Mods, and the Opticor Vandal, but you’ll need to take down a tremendous foe to unlock your final reward. You’ll find your first clue waiting for you in the Vallis.
  • Enhance Yourself: Earn Hildryn’s specialized new Surator Syandana and Asuron alt helmet, the Corpus Quaro Syandana, and wield her signature heavy weapon, the Larkspur, a unique and menacing Arch-gun with a wild initial attack that locks onto a target then chains other targets close to the first.

Check out Hildryn in action below.

Finally, Digital Extremes has detailed the following additions;

  • Mod Your K-Drive: Earn increased Standing faster by competing in K-Drive races around the Orb Vallis! Then unlock new modular parts to customize the K-Drive
  • Ephemera!: There is a whole new way to customize Warframes. Earn new Ephemera effects in a variety of ways: Arbitrations, the Stalker, and Elite Sanctuary Onslaughts
  • Limbo Deluxe Has Arrived: Become one with the Sentients as the illusive, deceptive Limbo! Available now in the Marketplace, the Limina Limbo Deluxe Skin, Tarock Thrown Blade Skin, Interga Sugatra, and the Sidereal Syandana are purchasable as individual items or as part of the Limbo Deluxe Bundle
  • Tatsu Sword: Fearsome and noble, the elegant two-handed Nikana is the pride of any arsenal
  • Curly Hairstyles: Give Operators a fresh look with one of three new curly hairstyles

Operation Buried Debts is available now for PC and will come to consoles later.

Warframe is available now.
