Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 2, Week 1

NW I2W1

Welcome back, Dreamers.

Intermission is back! Looks like there are 30 Ranks, with the potential to presige another 30 times, so this may be in place for a while… Or not – we’ll have to wait and see!

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).

As always, thanks to Wrathoc for his help tracking this info down. Don’t forget to give him a follow at twitch.tv/wrathoc!

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 27 October/Monday 28 October:

  • Complete 3 Assassination Missions
  • Complete 5 Different Bounties in the Plains of Eidolon
  • Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore on the Plains of Eidolon
  • Pick up 8 Rare Mods
  • Complete 1 Sortie
  • Win 3 Wagers in a Row without letting the Enemy Score in One Match of The Index (Elite)
  • Kill or Capture an Eidolon Hydrolyst (Elite)

Some Tips

Complete 3 Assassination Missions: Easy, but will take time. Keep in mind that this is a good opportunity to farm a boss for a specific drop. If you don’t need to farm anything, just choose an easy boss and smash it out. OR! Go for a Phorid Invasion – that also counts as an Assassination. Probably the most flexible challenge.

Complete 5 Different Bounties in the Plains of Eidolon: Now that there are camps on the Plains, this will be much easier. You can either jump in and just smash out 5 in a row, or do a few here and there across several days. Not hard, but time consuming, as usual. Good chance to farm for anything you are missing from the Plains.

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.

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.

Complete 1 Sortie: Sadly, this locks out players that are yet to complete The War Within, but it’s not terribly difficult.

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.

Kill or Capture an Eidolon Hydrolyst: Not difficult if you are experienced with the Eidolons, but keep in mind the Hydrolyst is the third Eidolon,so you need to Capture the Teralyst, then take the Brilliant Shards to the lake to call out the Gantulyst, and then reinse and repeat for the Hydrolyst. As a result, you’ll kind of need a team that knows what they are doing.
