Warframe has just received its long-touted and much-awaited Alert mission rework: the Nightwave. Functionally speaking, Nightwaves are a "battle pass minus buy-in" according to developers, and work like, say, Seasons, in Diablo 3, Path of Exile, and similar titles.
Warframe Nightwave is an evolution of the game's randomised missions, where instead of having to wait for desired items to appear completely at random, players can now collect tokens and trade them in at their own behest. Down below, you're going to find out what the rewards are and how to get them!
How to Get Nightwave Rewards in Warframe?
Nightwaves are apparently seasonal thematic missions, featuring special events, enemies, and rewards that may or may not be exclusive to a Nightwave. These long-term missions will, according to devs, take a few weeks to wrap up, and will provide eager players not only with gameplay-related goodies such as skins, weapons, and - yes - inventory slots, but also with additional lore and backstory.
The Wolf of Saturn Six is the very first Nightwave, and it brings with it a new boss enemy (the titular Wolf), his weapon, a slew of amazing new mods, cosmetics, assorted goodies, and the legendary Umbral Forma item. To get their paws on this loot, players must progress through 30 levels of the current Nightwave, each of which grants you a new reward.
Progressing through the Nightwave is easy - all you need to do is check out the rotating daily and weekly tasks available by clicking the Nightwave banner in the lower right corner of your Starmap, and then organically complete those assignments through regular gameplay. Doing so will award you Standing, and for every 10 000 Standing, you can upgrade your Nightwave level.
New items are purchased by spending Wolf Cred tokens, which you get by upgrading your Nightwave level. You can see what the rewards are for each and every Nightwave level at the top of the feature's interface, which you can scroll to see later level rewards, too. Umbral Forma, for example, is level 29 reward!
We hope this provides you with some direction in how to tackle Warframe's latest and greatest. Stay tuned for further coverage and guides, right here at Game Watcher.
