Warframe received its timed alert mission rework a few weeks back, with the release of Nightwave - a (free) battle pass sort of system where players attempt to climb through 30 tiers of daily and weekly challenges to unlock unique cosmetics, slots, and other assorted items.
Warframe Nightwave challenges have daily and weekly iterations, as one would expect. Daily challenges net you 1000 standing, while weeklies go for 3000. Elite weekly challenges, on the other hand, provide 5000 standing. Below you'll find out how to get through this week's offerings fast.
How to Quickly Complete this Week's Nightwave Challenges?
This week, developers have chosen to go with a number of mission completion tasks. This means that, depending on your skill level, you can get through the majority of this week's challenges really quickly. However, some of them might remain elusive for lower-ranking players.
- find 3 Sabotage caches in a single mission
- catch 6 rare Plains of Eidolon fish
- complete 5 Simaris scans
- complete 1 Sortie
- complete 3 Nightmare missions
- complete 10 Syndicate missions
- complete 3 waves of Sanctuary Onslaught
- ELITE: kill 3 Silver Grove Specters
- ELITE: win 3 wagers in a row playing the Index
- ELITE: reach wave 40 playing any Defense mission with a friend or clanmate
The majority of these are fairly straight-forward, really. If you're unsure how to get Nightmare missions to appear - you can only find them on planets you've finished all normal missions on. Also worth noting is that Simaris scans replenish on a daily basis, so you'll need to get chummy with him this week. There's a fast-travel option available in any normal Relay (Mercury, Saturn, Pluto).
Now, this week's Elites will send you on a hunt for Silver Grove Specters, no less. These Warframe Specters appear as part of Titania's questline. What you want to do is start The Silver Grove quest, get Apothic blueprints, and then locate and scan what plants you need in normal missions. When you've crafted your Apothics, go to a Grineer Forest mission and find the Silver Grove itself, where sacrificing the Apothic will spawn a Specter.
Since you can safely ignore up to 13 000 Nightwave standing each week and still complete all of its stages in the alloted timeframe, feel free to skip the Challenges that do not sit well with you!
We hope this guide helps you out in completing Warframe's weekly Nightwave Challenges, but keep in mind that you'll also be getting additional daily quests to bolster your standing accretion, though these can usually easily be completed in 5 minutes or less. Happy hunting!
