Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 2, Week 12

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).

Thanks, as always, to Wrathoc for tracking the details down once again.

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 12 January/Monday 13 January:

  • Find All Caches in 3 Sabotage Missions
  • Complete 6 Different Perfect Animal Captures in Orb Vallis
  • Complete 3 Exterminate Missions
  • Pick up 8 Rare Mods
  • Complete 3 Capture Missions
  • Kill Profit-Taker (Elite)
  • Complete an Extermination Mission with only Level 30 or Higher Enemies without Triggering Alarms (Elite)

Some Tips

Find All Caches in 3 Sabotage Missions: This isn’t a difficult challenge, but it’s definitely time consuming. Sometimes you just can’t find those damned caches. I wouldn’t recommend trying to double up with “Kill XX enemies” challenges as you just want to look for caches, but you can possibly knock these out at the same time as doing other related missions. You could always double up on the “Silver Grove” challenge by choosing the Earth Sabotage mission as well.

Complete 6 Different Perfect Animal Captures in Orb Vallis: Pretty straightforward, but somewhat time-consuming. If you have Ivara, I’d recommend bringing her, as she can sleep multiple critters with a single sleep arrow. Otherwise, you’ll just have to keep chipping away until you have 6… Doesn’t really combine well with other missions, except perhaps mining, which you can do while you explore, but that will involve juggling tools.

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.

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 3 Capture Missions: It doesn’t get much easier than this. My advice? Choose a low level capture, rush to the target, take him down, and rush out – you’ll smash out three in under 15 minutes.

Kill Profit-Taker: Oof. Glad this is an Elite challenge, as it’s not one that many players can actually achieve, particularly lower level players. Still, not only will you be taking down the Profit-Taker Orb, but you’ll also be fighting a bunch of Corpus, so best to combine this one with “Kill XXX number of enemies” challenges (don’t make it too complex, as you will need to concentrate on the Orb fight).

Complete an Extermination Mission with only Level 30 or Higher Enemies without Triggering Alarms: If you have a good stealth frame (Ivara, Loki, Ash, or even Banshee, Limbo, or Baruuk), then this probably won’t be too taxing for you, but note that the number of kills required will be significant. That said, there are no alarms in the Void, so you can just go ham in a Void Exterminate and the box will be ticked (well… this used to work – it may need to be tested).
