With the daily login reset on Sunday, Warframe will also update its Nightwave acts for the week. Nora’s Choice is in its fourth week, with an updated Cred deals page and more challenges to complete.
Here are this week’s Nightwave acts:
- Animator – Fully Pedestal 3 Ayatan Sculptures
- Good friend – Help Clem on his weekly mission
- Sound Sleeper – Complete 3 nightmare missions of all types
- Unlock Relics – Unlock 3 Relics
- Venus Bounty Hunter – Complete 5 different bounties in Orb Vallis
- Hold your breath – Survive over 30 minutes in Kuva Survival
- Kill Shot – Kill 1,500 enemies
How to Complete the More Difficult Weekly Acts
Newre players may not know what Ayatan sculptures are. These are those rare pickups that you can find on every mission. Players can get used to them by visiting Maroo at their bazaar. Essentially, these ship decorations can become or be exchanged for Endo.
However, the challenge requires you to stick 3 of these. To fully pedestal an Ayatan sculpture, you have to Ayatan amber and cyan stars. The use of these stars increases the value of the sculptures. Fortunately, they aren’t all that hard to come by. Cyan Stars fall out of breakable boxes and lockers quite often in all types of missions. You’ll know when one falls because the minimap indicates they’re nearby.
You’ll also hear an audible alert if you know someone has fallen nearby. However, you will have to pick up these stars manually. Sentinels and other companions with a Vacuum or Fetch mod will not save these for you. Do lots of quick missions like exterminates and captures, but break lots of boxes and lockers along the way. These things will fall like candy. Once you have a good amount in your inventory, purchase a sculpture.
The quickest way to get a sculpture is to go to Maroo’s Bazaar and accept their weekly Ayatan treasure hunt. It guarantees a sculpture that you can then bring back to your Liset at your modding station. Select the Ayatan Treasures and Sculpture option. To save time, you can simply select the “Automatic Installation” option to fully pedestal a sculpture. You know if a sculpture is completely filled when it starts moving like a fully functional machine. Repeat this three times and the challenge is complete!
Every Warframe gamer has heard of this man before. The Man, the Myth, the Legend, Clem, is an over-the-top meme at this point, but an adorable figure in the cast. He will have a weekly mission that will be completed after the “A man in a few words” Seek.
Once that’s done, go to Darvo at any relay and he should have an additional option that says “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 watch out for the random appearance of a field boss, depending on the tileset. Upon completing the mission, you will receive Act Reputation as well as a Clem Clone Blueprint.
Nightmare missions are the harder counterparts to normal missions. They have some kind of mission modifier like energy drain, time mode, no-shield mode, and others. To play a Nightmare Mission, you must complete every node on a planet. There is also one Nightmare mission per planet. So the more planets you have fully unlocked, the more variety you have.
Ideally, you want to find a mission with one of the following modifiers:
- Death Detonation Mode
- No shield mode
- Timed mode
- Vampire fashion
- Low gravity mode
Basically avoid the Energy Drain mode as it makes every Warframe useless except Lavos and Hildryn. You should also avoid the No Shield Mode modifier when using a Hildryn. Complete three of these types of missions and the rep is yours!
Venus bounty hunter
You can easily complete the five levels of bounty Eudico gives you in Fortuna and end the day. However, levels 4 and 5, as well as the Steel Path bounties, can be very time consuming.
A time-saving alternative that I use a lot is to complete the first three tiers of bounty that Eudico gives you. To complete the other two, you can take on the Exploiter Orb or take part in the Robberies in the Vox Solaris room in Fortuna. However, you must have reached Old Mate rank with Solaris United in order to accept the Profit Taker Heist bounties. Phase 2 of the Profit Taker Bounties can be completed very quickly and has a really good drop table. Ultimately, taking over and defeating the Profit Taker itself will help complete the Venus Bounty Hunter Act.
Hold your breath
Long survival missions can be a burden for some players or, in some cases, a tough stats test. Kuva Fortress is one of the higher tier planets in the game. It’s dominated by Grineer so you don’t have to deal with energy stealing enemies and Nullifiers, but they do have annoying Heavy Gunners, Manics, and Kuva Guardians to deal with on a regular basis.
It’s a Kuva survival mission that works basically 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 life support capsules. It’s like a hybrid mission between survival and excavation. However, you do not have to collect the canisters. All you have to do is hit the 30 minute mark and then complete the mission.
If you feel that your equipment is not up to date, there are people out there who are more than willing to start a group on the recruiting chat.
Overall, this is a very easy and straightforward week. Nothing is going to be too difficult except possibly the Venus Bounty Hunter and Hold Your Breath challenges.
