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 to Wrathoc for his awesomeness.
This Week's Bounties
The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 16 July/Monday 17 August:
- Complete 6 Different Perfect Animal Captures in Orb Vallis
- Pick up 8 Rare Mods
- Destroy a Crewship with Forward Artillery
- Complete 3 Mobile Defense Missions
- Complete 3 Nightmare Missions of Any Type
- Kill Profit-Taker (Elite)
- Complete 3 Sorties (Elite)
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 – but note this does specificy 6 DIFFERENT captures. Doesn’t really combine well with other missions, except perhaps mining, which you can do while you explore, but that will involve juggling tools.
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.
Destroy a Crewship with Forward Artillery: Kind of requires you (or someone you are playing with) to have unlocked forward artillery in your Intrinsics. Still needs to be tested – unsure if this has to be done by you, or a team mate. Do it in Earth Proxima so you can get that one shot kill.
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 3 Nightmare Missions of Any Type: Did you forget about Nightmare missions? I know I did. But this isn’t too hard – just find a mission you’re happy to do and smash it out. 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.
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 3 Sorties: Pretty straightforward really – just do Sorties. You CAN double up on other challenges while doing this, but I wouldn’t recommend it – just smash out the Sortie. Keep in mind that some Sorties are more difficult than others, so if you decide to skip one here and there, you’ll have to make it up on another day!
