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).
Note: as always, HUGE props to Wrathoc for helping gather the info.
This Week's Bounties
The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 25 August/Monday 26 August:
- Complete 3 Kuva Siphon Missions
- Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore on the Plains of Eidolon
- Complete 3 Exterminate Missions
- Complete 3 Rescue Misions
- Unlock 3 Relics
- Kill or Capture an Eidolon Hydrolyst (Elite)
- Kill 1500 Enemies (Elite)
Complete 3 Kuva Siphon Missions: A little annoying that one of the standard weeklies requires players to have completed The War Within – particularly because this will also prevent players from being able to play catch-up content if they can’t clear this… However, Kuva Siphon isn’t terribly difficult, and is even kind of fun! Will work alongside “Kill XX enemies” Acts as well.
Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore on the Plains of Eidolon: Rare gems are actually quite easy to find, so this won’t take too long. I’d recommend using the Orb Vallis mining tool if you have it. You’re more likely to find them in blue veins, but red veins will also have a chance (but only when the small target spawns). Just do a lot of mining, and do your best to be as perfect as possible – and always go for the small target if it’s there.
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.
Complete 3 Rescue Misions: Super duper easy – you could probably smash this out in 5 minutes. Choose a low-level, simple Rescue – rush to target, rush to exit, done. Not likely one that needs to be combined with any other challenge, but keep it in mind.
Unlock 3 Relics: Crack three relics? Seriously? Definitely double this up with a “Complete 3 [mission type] missions if you can, and don’t forget to do it in public so you have a better chance at some good Prime drops!
Complete 10 Syndicate missions: Nice and easy – you can knock out a bunch of passive challenges as well while doing these, as well as possibly some less passive ones, such as Simaris scans and so on.
Kill or Capture an Eidolon Hydrolyst: Not difficult if you are experienced with the Eidolons,but keep in mind the Hydrolyst is the second Eidolon,so you need to Capture the Teralyst, then take the Brilliant Shards to the lake to call out the Hydrolyst. As a result, you’ll kind of need a team that knows what they are doing.
Kill 1500 Enemies: Actually relatively easy, for an Elite challenge, as it’s one that can be done passively! Don’t actually focus on this one until you’ve done everything else. Then choose a high-level Exterminate and you should knock this out quickly.
