Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 3, Week 7

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).

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 21 March/ Monday 22 March:

  • Complete 3 Assassination Missions
  • Find All Caches in 3 Sabotage Missions
  • Kill 100 Enemies with a Mech
  • Complete 3 Nightmare Missions of Any Type
  • Complete 8 Zone of Sanctuary Onslaught
  • Complete 8 Zones of Elite Sanctuary Onslaught (Elite)
  • Complete 5 Steel Path Missions (Elite)

Some Tips

Complete 3 Assassination Missions: Easy, but will take time. Keep in mind that this is a good opportunity to farm a boss for a specific drop. If you don’t need to farm anything, just choose an easy boss and smash it out. OR! Go for a Phorid Invasion – that also counts as an Assassination. Probably the most flexible challenge.

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.

Kill 100 Enemies with a Mech: Well… this is interesting. For now, it can only be done on Deimos, but do keep in mind this will also work on the “dead” mechs if you haven’t got your own just yet. Not that hard, but annoying to some, I would assume, and just a pain in the butt.

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.

Complete 8 Zone of Sanctuary Onslaught: Not difficult, and unlocked fairly early in the Star Chart, so this is accessible to most players. All you need to do is survive long enough to last 8 waves – advanced players can probably do this solo, newer players should enter in public or with friends. And yes, you can knock out some passive kill challenges at the same time! Not only that – you can do this in chunks (i.e., it doesn’t have to be 8 waves in one session).

Complete 8 Zones of Elite Sanctuary Onslaught: There are some great rewards to be gained from ESO – including Radiant Relics, and the Braton and Lato Vandal variants, but lower level players are likely to struggle. Note, though, that this is a great place to also farm focus, and you can also knock out a bunch of kills, including Eximus enemies.

Complete 5 Steel Path Missions: Oooh, yikes. This is getting “Elite”. Not only do you need to complete every node to unlock the Steel Path, but you also need to have the equipment to handle it. Not so bad if you are truly elite, or have friends that are, but I can see this would annoy some.

Episode 138 – Railjack 3.0 Workshop

Our first two-week break between episodes, and I’ve gotta say… it was a good idea! 

There wasn’t much news to discuss over the last two weeks, and we’ve come back to a major workshop forum post! And not only that – details on the Zephyr rework! A brilliant bunch of info to discuss — please join us for the fun and speculation…

Topics:

  • News: Railjack 3.0 workshop, Zephyr rework, TennoGen Rd 20 shown off on Prime Time
  • Discussion: Railjack 3.0 and the Zephyr Rework

Episode Notes:

The Dev Workshop for Railjack 3.0 was released on March 8, as promised (also available in video form!) 

Old mate Pablo jumped onto YouTube to share his rework of Zephyr, just prior to the release of the new Zephyr Deluxe

TennoGen Round 20 was shown off during Prime Time this week! 

DE reposted the FAQ about the Railjack 3.0 workshop… so… maybe this week? 

Thanks for listening – please use the Contact Us link at the top of the page if you have any feedback!

Episode 137 – Devstream 152

[Note: the usual editor isn’t working today, so let’s hope this works!]

It was Devstream week, and you know what that means? Yep, Cephalon Squared was all over it!

This week was full of all sorts of details – upcoming content, Sevagoth, and much much more, alongside a bunch of nerfs and fixes set to come down the pipeline… There was a lot to talk about, so jump in and have a listen!

Topics:

  • News: Octavia Prime Access is out on all platforms! and… Cephalon Squared is moving to one episode every two weeks, instead of an episode every week
  • Discussion: Devstream 152, of course!

 

Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 3, Week 4

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 being amazing.

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 28 January February/Monday 01 March:

  • Complete 3 Assassination Missions
  • Complete 3 Spy Missions
  • Complete 3 Mobile Defense Missions
  • Complete 3 Rescue Missions
  • Complete 3 Sabotage Missions
  • Complete a Defence Mission reaching at least Wave 20
  • Complete a Survival Mission Reaching at Least 30 Minutes

Some Tips

Complete 3 Assassination Missions: Easy, but will take time. Keep in mind that this is a good opportunity to farm a boss for a specific drop. If you don’t need to farm anything, just choose an easy boss and smash it out. OR! Go for a Phorid Invasion – that also counts as an Assassination. Probably the most flexible challenge.

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.

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 mssion types). Can also be combined with Dailies, depending on what they are, so consider them before jumping in.

Complete 3 Rescue Missions: Super duper easy – you could probably smash this out in 5 minutes. Choose a low-level, simple Rescue – rush to target, rush to exit, done. Not likely one that needs to be combined with any other challenge, but keep it in mind.

Complete 3 Sabotage Missions: Another super duper easy one, and one that can be doubled up with Invasions or Relic runs if that is also on the cards for that week (provided, of course, that there are Sabotage missions available). Otherwise, smash out three low level ones and be done with this in 10 mins.

Complete a Defence Mission reaching at least Wave 20: Not too hard, you just have to last a long time. That many waves is going to be at least half an hour, so buckle in – and remember, all you need to do is survive, so you should be fine with a good group. You can smash out a bunch of other passive challenges as well, so make sure you bring the right weapons to get multiple jobs done (if they are on the menu for that day/week).

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(ish)-term survival.

Episode 136 – Arcane Helmets

Almost 2 months in to 2021 already – can you believe it? Well, next week brings a new Devstream, so get excited!

This week, though, saw an error in the Nightwave rewards, which meant that players could get their hands on an Arcane Helmet, which haven’t been seen in-game for several years now. As a result, we decided it was a good discussion topic – to help new players understand where they fit into the game and discuss whether or not they are still worthwhile!

Join us!

Topics:

  • News: Relink your Warframe and Twitch accounts, Celebrate the Lunar New Year, Orphix Venom ending soon on consoles
  • Discussion: Arcane Helmets

Episode Notes:

The new Twitch Drops system is here – if you haven’t done it yet, remember to unlink and then RElink your Twitch and Warframe accounts 

The Lunar New Year celebrations are out on all platforms – aprt from the cheap stuff available in the market, there are also some packs available for Platinum – and those little cute Lucky Kavats are super cute. 

And although Star Days has a bunch of stuff to grab via Ticker – don’t forget there’s other stuff available in the market, too, including the Valentines colour picker 

Operation Orphix Venom ends this week on consoles! Feb 22 at 3pm ET – get all your stuff done beforehand!

Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 3, Week 3

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).

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 21 January/Monday 22 February:

  • Find All Caches in 3 Sabotage Missions
  • Complete 9 Invasion Missions of Any Type
  • Kill 500 Enemies
  • Unlock 4 Orokin Vaults on Deimos
  • Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Orb Vallis
  • Survive for over 30 Minutes in Kuva Survival
  • Kill 1,500 Enemies

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 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.

Kill 500 Enemies: Super easy, because it can be done passively! Don’t focus on this at all – it should just happen. If not, choose a high-level Exterminate and you should knock this out quickly.

Unlock 4 Orokin Vaults on Deimos: This is accessible to all players now, as a results of the Derelict moving to Deimos, but lower MR players may struggle. Recommend lower players to go in with friends/clannies. Still, this can also be solo’d by higher level players, and is a great opportunity to collect some rare (and highly tradeable) mods.

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 1,500 Enemies: Actually relatively easy, for an Elite challenge, as it’s one that can be done passively! Don’t actually focus on this one until you’ve done everything else. Then choose a high-level Exterminate and you should knock this out quickly.

Episode 135 – Bringing Tenno Back to the Dojo

Have you ever thought about the Dojo, and how – apart from trading and the labs – there’s little point in visiting? Well, we have, as did a few of our Discord users. And out of that little discussion came a few great ideas to try to bring players back to the Dojo on a more regular basis.

Not what you were thinking? Send us your thoughts!

Oh, and we’ve made the decision to cut Beginner and Advanced topics from today – they were getting hard to think of, plus, we can add more tips into the rest of the content!

Topics:

  • News: Nezha Prime access ending soon,  Star Days has begun, Lunar celebrations starting soon, Devstream 152 locked in for Feb 26, and a new Twitch drops system is incoming
  • Discussion: bringing Tenno back to the Dojo

Episode Notes:

Nezha Prime Access ending Feb 23 – and Equinox, Stradavar, Tipedo Primes are headed into the vault… 

Star Days has arrived on all platforms – huzzah! 

DE released a little sneak peek of what to expect this .. Spring/Autumn, wherever you are in the world. All stuff we’ve seen before, but… still nice to see. 

Celebrate the New Lunar Year in style! Some… stuff is headed to Warframe from the 16th, including some new bundles, with cutie little good luck Kavat statues…

The next Devstream has been announced – coming on Feb 26TH, woo! 

Also coming on Feb 16th, alongside the Lunar New Year stuff, but completely unrelated? Twitch Drops 2.0! It’s a new system, so check out the details!

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!
