Nightwave Intermission: Week 3

intermission week 3

Welcome back, Dreamers.

The Nightwave weekly bounties change every Sunday at 12 midnight GMT (or Monday morning, if that’s your preference), so keep your eyes out every week after that time for our weekly update – letting you know the activities you’ll need to complete for the week (note this will not include daily challenges, of course).

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 30 June/Monday 1 July:

  • Complete 3 Exterminate Missions
  • Pick up 8 Rare Mods
  • Kill 30 Eximus
  • Complete 3 Capture Missions
  • Complete 3 Spy Missions
  • Complete 3 Sorties (Elite)
  • Complete a Survival Mission reaching at least 30 Minutes (Elite) 

Some Tips

Complete 3 Exterminate Missions: This one is really easy, but keep the daily acts in mind, as you can double or triple up on basic challenges (such as Kill XX enemies with XX weapon type, and so on). You might be able to also cover any Invasion Acts as well, but only if you’re lucky enough to have an Exterminate mission in Invasions.

Pick up 8 Rare Mods: seems difficult at first glance, because Rare mods … well, they’re rare. They don’t necessarily drop that often. While it’s quite possible that 8 will drop as you do other challenges, this pairs PERFECTLY with an Index challenge, as all Index mods are Rare, and they drop frequently. TL;DR: go to the Index, if you can.

Kill 30 Eximus: This won’t take TOO long, but can likely be easily knocked off passively while doing other challenges. If this happens in the same week as the “Kill 100 Eximus” Elite, then you are laughing – 8000 rep for 10-15 mins of work. Same tips apply – if you want to smash it out, do a high(ish) level Survival and stay for as long as you can.

Complete 3 Capture Missions: It doesn’t get much easier than this. My advice? Choose a low level capture, rush to the target, take him down, and rush out – you’ll smash out three in under 15 minutes.

Complete 3 Spy Missions: Again, an easy one, and again, one that you might be able to double up on with Invasion missions (if you’re lucky). This will work for ANY Spy mission, so keep an eye on the Sortie as well, because that might tick off one of these if you also need to do a Sortie challenge.

Complete 3 Sorties: Pretty straightforward really – just do Sorties. You CAN double up on other challenges while doing this, but I wouldn’t recommend it – just smash out the Sortie. Keep in mind that some Sorties are more difficult than others, so if you decide to skip one here and there, you’ll have to make it up on another day!

Complete a Survival Mission reaching at least 30 Minutes: With a good group, this is actually quite easy. I’d recommend doing this while cross-referencing other requirements for the week, as you may be able to knock off a few passive challenges as well. Not too straining, but tedious if you don’t enjoy long-term survival.
