Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 2, Week 10

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). Of note this week? The Grendel Alternate Helmet is available in the Nightwave store for the first time.

Thanks to Wrathoc for being awesome, as usual.

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 29 December/Monday 30 December:

  • Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Plains of Eidolon
  • Complete 9 Invasion Missions of Any Type
  • Complete 5 Scans for Cephalon Simaris
  • Complete 10 Syndicate Missions
  • Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Orb Vallis
  • Complete 10 Nightmare Missions of Any Type (Elite)
  • Complete a Survival Mission Reaching at Least 30 Minutes (Elite)

Some Tips

Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in 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 9 Invasion Missions of Any Type: This is a good challenge to have, because it kind of forces you to do Invasions – and there are some good things to be gained from Invasions. Of course, you can get some weapons, Mutagen Mass, and the occasional Forma (among many other things), but you can also double up on other challenges that may match the mission type. Tip if this is not the case? Do low level Phorid Assassinations. That can be smashed out quick and easy.

Complete 5 Scans for Cephalon Simaris: Keep in mind that you will need to have a target assigned by Cephalon Simaris, so go see him at any relay first. Hopefully he’ll give you a common target. You can quite easily combine this with most other mission types, depending on the target you have, so ensure you have your scanners equipped.

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. 

Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Orb Vallis: Rare gems are actually quite easy to find, so this won’t take too long. 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 10 Nightmare Missions of Any Type: This one isn’t too hard – just a little tedious. Depending on how well equipped you are, it shouldn’t be difficult, but you possibly want to be careful to double dip on things if you are struggling. Still – you need to do 10 of these, so you might be able to double dip by also knocking out any “Do X number of XXX mission type” missions.

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.
