Once again, with the daily login reset on Sunday, Warframe will also be updating its Nightwave deeds for the week. Nora's Choice is in its fourth week, with an updated credits offers page and more challenges to complete.
Here are this week's issues of Nightwave:
- Animator – Fully Taken 3 Ayatan Sculptures
- Good Friend – Help Clem with his weekly mission
- Sound Sleeper – Complete 3 Nightmare Missions of any type
- Unlock Relics – Unlock 3 Relics
- Venus Bounty Hunter – Complete 5 different bounties in Orb Valley
- Hold Your Breath – Survive more than 30 minutes in Kuva Survival
- Kill Shot – Kill 1 enemies
How to Complete the Hardest Weekly Acts
New players may not know what Ayatan Sculptures are. These are those rare pickups that you can find in any mission. Players can get used to it if they frequent Maroo at his bazaar. Essentially, these can become ship decorations or be exchanged for Endo.
However, the challenge requires you to be in socket 3. To fully embed an Ayatan sculpture, you will need to have Ayatan Amber and Stars Cyan. Using these stars increases the value of Sculptures. Luckily, they're not too hard to find. Cyan Stars drop from breakable crates and lockers quite often in all mission types. You'll know if one drops because the minimap will show it's nearby.
You will also hear a beep knowing that a nearby signal has dropped. You will need to manually pick up these stars though. Sentinels and other companions with a Vacuum or Fetch mod will not pick them up for you. Complete lots of quick missions like Exterminate and Capture, but break lots of crates and lockers along the way. These things will fall like candies. Then, once you have a good amount in your inventory, acquire a Sculpture.
The fastest way to get a sculpture is to go to Maroo's Bazaar and accept his Ayatan Weekly Treasure Hunt mission. This guarantees a sculpt that you can then take back to your modding station in your Liset. Select the Ayatan Treasures option and choose a sculpture. To save time, you can simply select the automatic installation option to fully embed a sculpture. You will know if a sculpture is fully filled when it begins to move like a fully functional machine. Repeat this three times and the challenge will be complete!
Every Warframe player has heard of this man. The man, the myth, the legend, Clem, is an overdone meme at this point, but a lovable character in the cast. He will have a weekly mission available after completing the "A Man of Few Words" quest.
Once done, head to Darvo at any belay and he should have an additional option that reads "Does Clem need my help?" This will prompt you to start a mission to…help Clem. It's a ten minute survival mission where you fight alongside Clem. The mission is very simple; just pay attention to the random appearance of a field boss depending on the tileset. Upon completing the mission, you will be rewarded with Act status as well as a Clem clone blueprint.
Nightmare missions are the more difficult counterparts of normal missions. They have some kind of mission modifier like energy drain, timed mode, no shield mode and others. To play a Nightmare mission, you must complete all nodes on a planet. There's also one Nightmare mission per planet, so the more planets you've fully unlocked, the more variety you'll have.
Ideally, you would want to find a mission that has one of the following modifiers:
- Lethal Detonation Mode
- No shield mode
- Timed mode
- vampire fashion
- Low gravity mode
Basically, avoid Energy Drain Mode as it renders all Warframes except Lavos and Hildryn useless. You would also want to avoid the No Shield Mode modifier if you are using a Hildryn. Complete three of these types of missions and the Rep is yours!
You can easily complete the five levels of bounties that Eudico gives you in Fortuna and call it a day. However, levels 4 and 5, as well as Steel Path bounties can take a long time.
An alternative that I often use to save time is to complete the first three tiers of bounties that Eudico gives you. Then, to complete the other two, you can take on the Orb of the Exploiter or participate in the Heist Bounties in the Vox Solaris room in Fortuna. You will, however, need to have reached Old Mate rank with Solaris United if you want to take advantage of the Profit Taker Heist bounties. Phase 2 of the Profit Taker bounties can be completed very quickly and has a very good drop table. Finally, facing the Profit Taker himself and defeating him contributes to the completion of the Venus Bounty Hunter Act.
Long survival missions can be a drag for some players, or in some cases, a difficult stat check. Kuva Fortress is one of the higher tier planets in the game. It's dominated by the Grineer, so you won't have to deal with enemies and energy cancellers, but they do have Heavy Gunners , Manics and Kuva Guardians annoying to deal with periodically.
This is a Kuva Survival Mission that essentially acts the same as a normal Survival Mission. The only difference is that you can actively farm Kuva by picking up a canister dropped by certain enemies and placing it in the survival pods. It's like a hybrid mission between Survival and Excavation. You don't need to pick up the canisters, though. All you have to do is hit the 30 minute mark and then complete the mission.
If you think your gear might not be up to snuff, there are people who are more than willing to start a group in the recruiting chat.
All in all a very simple and straightforward week. Nothing will be too hard to complete, other than maybe the Venus Bounty Hunter and Hold Your Breath challenges.
