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).
Keep in mind that DE has confirmed that Series 2 is set to end on October 13, so there’s only 2 weeks left!
Note: thanks, as always, to Wrathoc for wrangling the info for us.
This Week's Bounties
The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 6 October/Monday 7 October:
- Complete 12 Conduits in Disruption
- Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore on the Plains of Eidolon
- Kill 30 Eximus Units
- Complete 8 Waves of Sanctuary Onslaught
- Unlock 3 Relics
- Survive for over 30 Minutes in Kuva Survival (Elite)
- Kill a Tusk Thumper Doma in the Plains of Eidolon (Elite)
Complete 12 Conduits in Disruption: This is a new addition for Series2, and a welcome one. However, players do need to have completed Natah in order to tackle this one. It’s only 3 rounds (each containing 4 Conduits), so it shouldn’t be too hard, especially with a good team.
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.
Kill 30 Eximus Units: 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 8 Waves of Sanctuary Onslaught: Not difficult, and unlocked fairly early in the Star Chart, so this is accessible to most players. All you need to do is survive long enough to last 8 waves – advanced players can probably do this solo, newer players should enter in public or with friends. And yes, you can knock out some passive kill challenges at the same time! Not only that – you can do this in chunks (i.e., it doesn’t have to be 8 waves in one session).
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!
Survive for over 30 Minutes in Kuva Survival: One of the harder challenges, but recent changes made it easier. You will of course need to have completed The War Within to unlock the Kuva Fortress, and have unlocked the Survival node there… Totally possible to solo if you have high level gear, but the last 15 minutes may be a challenge – better to bring a team and it will be simple. Also? Tedious.
