Staminamods like Quick Rest or Marathon. The melee mod Second Wind can provide boosts of stamina upon killing enemies with your melee weapon, making hit-and-run combat more viable as melee drains stamina quickly.
All Warframes have a base stamina count of 80 except Valkyr, who has 150. Level has no effect on stamina.
- Main article: Melee
Melee 2.0 is a form of combat system that utilizes edged or blunt weapons and close quarter attacks. Every attack uses Stamina and causes the player to take a single step forward. Melee weapons can be equipped in the tertiary slot of the arsenal in Warframe.
Current melee weapons consists of a number of classes, in which each class of weapons has a unique set of attack animations, including normal, jump, slide, stealth attacks, finishers, combos, and blocking.
Sprinting will cause the frame to lower their weapon and move at a greatly increased speed. Each warframe may have a different speed modifier for sprinting. Sprinting speeds can be increased with Rush.
Note: In options you can configure a new Key Binding to Toogle On/Off to auto-sprint. This is useful to make maneuvers without holding the sprint button all the time.
Rolling is a basic combat evasive maneuver used to get out of the way of a charging enemy, to evade bullets, grenades or melee attacks and to transition from cover to cover. It can also be used as a stealth maneuver while crouching. The short burst of speed can avoid detection in situations where the slow crouch-walk speed is not sufficient.
Crouching lowers the warframe to an average of about half height, increasing survivability and stealth by presenting enemies with a smaller hitbox. When crouched, near-normal movement is still possible, albeit slower. You can, however, still roll while crouched. If crouch is toggled on, you stay crouched.

Sliding is crouching during a sprint. This will bring a frame to a gradual stop (Except when sliding down a slope). While sliding, no stamina is used. After a few seconds of sliding Stamina will start charging. Ranged weapons may be used while sliding and a melee attack creates a separate combat maneuver.
A basic function that uses a minor amount of stamina. Many powers cannot be used while jumping.
|Combo||While Sprinting + Jump + Crouch|
|Combo||While Sliding + Jump|
While sliding, pressing the jump button will cause the warframe to jump and front flip in the direction it was sliding. In mid air the player can hit the crouch button again to resume sliding on land (This can be done infinitely. Simply keep pressing the Move Forward key (default "W", L3 forward). Example use: if the player is currently sliding into a low cover, they can choose to flip over it and instantly continue sliding behind it.
|Combo||Aim + Backward + Sprint|
While holding the aim button hold the back key and tap the roll button to do a back handspring.
|Combo||Aim + Left/Right + Sprint|
While holding the aim button, hold the left or right key and tap the sprint button to do a back sideways roll. This is very useful while trying to fight around grineer and with seekers or against bosses with slow attacks. The two dodge roll animations differ slightly, as the leftwards dodge roll includes a small hopping animation that the warframe completes at the end of his/her roll, while the dodge roll to the right is simply a roll.
After jumping, a frame will attempt to grab onto an edge of any kind, then attempt to climb up to a standing position regardless if there is enough space to stand or not.
Noted Bug: Occasionally players will attempt to climb into the shields of shield lancers, and the invisible ones they leave behind when killed.
|Combo||Sprint Forward + Jump|
Run at a wall then press and hold jump and a directional key. All wall running maneuvers require stamina which is drained over time.
Run at around a 90 degree angle toward a wall, then press and hold jump to run straight up. Upon releasing the jump key or movement key the warframe will backflip off the wall. If the top can be run onto, continue to hold the jump and directional keys to simply run up and over the edge to a stand. The faster the sprint speed of the frame, the higher it can climb.
- Wall Jump Climbing: Reminiscent of a certain plumber, the player may exploit vertical parallel surfaces (such as broken elevator shafts) to ascend continuously without the need for ledges. First, begin a vertical wall run up one of the walls. As you begin to slow down, release Jump to kick off, then quickly turn your camera directly toward the opposing wall. Begin holding Jump once again, to run up the new wall. This may be repeated as many times as stamina allows, to quickly reach areas at higher elevation.
- Power Wall Climbing: This can be done continuously on a single wall by combining Crouching and Jumping after reaching a certain height with the climb. Once a player reaches the climb limit, the player must crouch and hold the jump to reenact the climbing on the wall, thus creating a continuous climb. This climb will deplete stamina, but has no requirements to it, allowing an endless vertical ascent.
Sprint with less than a 70 degree angle towards a wall and press and hold jump to run horizontally across the wall. Releasing jump will cause the frame to leap from the wall with an accelerated speed. Sloping, non-hard-angle, corners can be run around; this enables many short cuts. Zooming, shooting, blocking, and many powers may be performed.
- Horizontal Kick Off: Releasing the jump button while preforming a horizontal wall run will cause the frame to leap off with a notably higher velocity. However there is a special case wherein the jump button is released immediately after beginning the wallrun. This will send the warframe flying at a very fast speed in the direction of the wall run allowing it to span huge gaps in a single bound. Which is useful for slower frames like Frost or Rhino to keep up with faster teamates. This jump's direction cannot be changed unless you crouch mid-air, however this will cause the frame to lose much of its velocity.
After running up a wall, a Tenno will grab the wall and begin to slowly slide down. During this, a Tenno may fire his weapon. Letting go of the jump button while sliding will cause the Tenno to backflip away from the wall. Pressing the melee attack button will cause the Tenno to jump and slash (see "Wall Attack" above) toward the direction of the crosshair. Holding or toggling crouch will make the Tenno slide when they touch the ground.
Added on Update 11, this maneuver can be done on obstacles half the size of the Warframe, allowing more movement across blocked paths with ease. Jumping while near these obstacles causes the Warframe to vault over them, whether Sprinting or not.
