Nightwave Weeklies, Series 2, Week 9

NW S2W9

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: thanks as always to Wrathoc for helping gather all this info!

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 8 September/Monday 9 September:

  • Catch 6 Rare Fish on the Plains of Eidolon
  • Complete 3 Different K-Drive Races in the Orb Vallis
  • Complete 3 Mobile Defense Missions
  • Complete 10 Syndicate Missions
  • Unlock 4 Orokin Derelict Vaults
  • Win 3 Wagers in a Row without letting the Enemy Score in One Match of The Index (Elite)
  • Survive for over 30 Minutes in Kuva Survival (Elite)

Some Tips

Catch 6 Rare Fish on the Plains of Eidolon: I expect these will require players to catch the baited fish, including: Sharrac, Karkina, Murkray, Norg, Cuthol, Glappid. Whichever you have the bait for should suffice, but do note when and where that fish may be available. Keep in mind you can do this with friends that have the bait – you don’t HAVE to have the bait yourself!

Complete 3 Different K-Drive Races in the Orb Vallis: Not so hard, provided you’ve unlocked Fortuna. Head into the Orb Vallis (perhaps go in Solo if you have no other Acts this can be perfromed alongside). If you equip your K-Drive and open your map, the Race locations willbe marked. Note there are only 5 per day, which refresh Daily, but you only need to do 3, so it won’t take too long. Can work nicely with fishing, mining, or bounties Acts on the Orb Vallis.

Complete 3 Mobile Defense Missions: Again, an easy one, and definitely one that can be doubled up with Invasion challenges (as Mobile Defence missions are often offered as Invasion mission types). Can also be combined with Dailies, depending on what they are, so consider them before jumping in.

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. 

Unlock 4 Orokin Derelict Vaults: This is accessible to lower rank players (you’ll need to grab the Dragon Keys from the Orokin Lab in your dojo and the Derelict Keys from the Market), but they may struggle. Recommend lower players to go in with friends/clannies. Still, this can also be solo’d by higher level players, and is a great opportunity to collect some rare (and highly tradeable) mods.

Win 3 Wagers in a Row without letting the Enemy Score in One Match of The Index: You’ll want to do this with friends, and to avoid frustration and embarrassment, perhaps stick to low risk investment. It won’t be too hard to win three rounds without the enemy scoring, but maybe keep someone near their bank just to make sure nothing slips through… Best not to double up here, and just focus on getting those wins. Recommended bank protectors? Defence frames, such as Frost or Gara will do well here, as will Zephyr or Hydroid.

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.
