Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 3, Week 2

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, king of good people.

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 14 January/Monday 15 February:

  • Complete 6 Different Perfect Animal Captures in Orb Vallis
  • Complete 3 Exterminate Missions
  • Kill 30 Eximus
  • Feed the Helminth any resource (worth 1,500 rep, not 4,500)
  • Complete 10 Syndicate Missions
  • Kill Profit-Taker
  • Complete 3 Sorties

Some Tips

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.

Kill 30 Eximus: This won’t take TOO long, but can likely be easily knocked off passively while doing other challenges. If this happens in the same week as the “Kill 100 Eximus” Elite, then you are laughing – 8000 rep for 30-45 mins of work. Same tips apply – if you want to smash it out, do a high(ish) level Survival and stay for as long as you can.

Feed the Helminth any resource: A new addition! Head on into your Helminth room and feed him! Any resource! Yay! But… given this is so simple… it’s only worth 1500 rep. BOO.

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. 

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!
