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 unfathomable awesomeness.
This Week's Bounties
The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 23 July/Monday 24 August:
- Complete 5 Different Bounties on the Plains of Eidolon
- Complete 3 Exterminate Missions
- Complete 3 Spy Missions
- Polarize a Weapon, Companion, or Warframe (not in Simularcrum)
- Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Orb Vallis
- Survive for over 30 Minutes in Kuva Survival (Elite)
- Kill a Tusk Thumper Doma in the Plains of Eidolon (Elite)
Complete 5 Different Bounties on 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.
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.
Complete 3 Spy Missions: Again, an easy one, and again, one that you might be able to double up on with Invasion missions (if you’re lucky). This will work for ANY Spy mission, so keep an eye on the Sortie as well, because that might tick off one of these if you also need to do a Sortie challenge.
Polarize a Weapon, Companion, or Warframe (not in Simularcrum): Not one that can be doubled up with anything else, and also a challenge that requires players to actually HAVE Forma… Perhaps slightly annoying for some, but really quite easy… and essential!
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.
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.
Kill a Tusk Thumper Doma in the Plains of Eidolon: This Act is a pain, for various reasons. For one, you need to spawn this specific Thumper – it spawns at a minimum of Enemy Level 30, so you should choose a bounty that can provide enemies of at least that level. The Doma itself is also pretty tough. I’d recommend bringing a Slow Nova or Rhino (for his Stomp) to slow it down a little and make taking out its knees easier (some also like to use their Archwing to keep out of range). The biggest pain for this, though, will be in simply finding the Doma itself. Keep in mind it only spawns during Daytime!
