"Deimos is bewitching. And when you're bewitched, you're not. Paying. Attention. Then... this happens. So try to be less easily impressed out there, hm? For all our sakes?"

Son

The Cambion Drift is an expansive, open Landscape connected to Necralisk, an Entrati settlement located on Deimos. Beyond the gates of the Necralisk, the Infestation has taken control of a majority of the Landscape, the inhabitants being Infested units of the Grey Strain. Cambion Drift is available after initiating the Heart of Deimos quest in the Codex.

The giant Infested wyrms, Fass and Vome, represent the cycle of the Landscape, stuck in an eternal battle between the siblings for which there can be no victor. Entrati Necramech battle mechs are also found here, operating on their autonomous kill precepts.


It was introduced in Update 29 on August 25th, 2020 on PC, PS4, and XB1 and on August 27th, 2020 on NSW.

Deimos Cambion Drift annotated map: Mother, necramech, active crystals, conservation, caves, and K-drives

The Cambion Drift is an open area set within the Infested landscape of Deimos. Unlike other mission nodes, the Cambion Drift is not procedurally generated using Tiles, but instead acts as a static map with unique features. Its surface is smaller in size than the Plains of Eidolon or Orb Vallis but is home to rich underground cave systems that run deep into Entrati ruins. While the surface is static, some of these cave systems are procedurally generated.

The Cambion Drift can be accessed through two different mission nodes on the Star Chart on Deimos. The first node will spawn the player at the westernmost side of the area, in the cave behind Albrecht's Prospect. The second node is the central hub of the Drift – Necralisk – where the player will spawn in a plaza located across from Grandmother and Otak.

Each server instance of Necralisk can hold up to 50 players within the town, however, players can only exit onto the Drift in the standard 2-4 man squads or Solo. Each map is considered its own separate mission instance, and will not be shared between squads.

Entering into the Drift from either Necralisk or directly from the Star Chart will create a new mission instance of the Drift, with procedural generation applying to objects like resource spawn locations, mineral veins, and underground cave routes.

Progress on the Drift is saved under the following conditions:

  • Upon returning to Necralisk through the airlock at any point, with the mission concluding and all progress saved.
  • On returning to the player's Orbiter via the escape menu.
  • All progress is automatically saved on completing Bounties.
  • Fishing, Mining, or using consumables results in a specific save of that content (fish caught, minerals extracted, consumables used).

NecraliskEdit

Main article: Necralisk

The Necralisk is the home of the Entrati Family who are partially infested Orokin, located to the north of Dirus, Deimos. It is the ruins of an opulent Orokin mansion-like residence, much smaller than an Orokin Tower, hidden inside a large round Infested growth in the north-east of the Cambion Drift.


Main FeaturesEdit

Fass & Vome CyclesEdit

The Cambion Drift features a real-time cycle which sees the map transition between the Infested wyrms in the background: the orange wyrm Fass and the blue wyrm Vome, who are constantly warring with each other. These wyrms will emerge, fire a destructive beam that destroys the other wyrm and litter their remains across the Cambion Drift, only to eventually regenerate and exact revenge in a repeated cycle. All players will experience the same wyrm at any particular time in the Cambion Drift. The Cambion Drift uses exactly the same cycle length as the Plains of Eidolon, where Fass' period last for 100 minutes and Vome's only 50 minutes. Both periods are set at the same time it is day and night respectively on the Plains of Eidolon.

The active wyrm determines the amount of enemies as well as the type of fish that players can encounter on the fields, and consequently affect the map's difficulty level. Fass increases the amount of Infested enemies present, litters Vome Residue, and Necramechs are found deactivated (and able to be piloted with Transference); while Vome decreases the amount of Infested enemies, litters Fass Residue, and allied Necramechs will roam and engage Infested. Additionally, the surrounding scattered Fass and Vome Residue nodes will affect players and allies in the area surrounding them, indicated by red or blue highlighting on the effected entity, with Fass Residue areas slightly slowing movement speed and Vome residue providing slight speed boost and health regeneration effects to Warframes, Companions, and piloted Necramechs.

FishingEdit

Main article: Fishing

The Cambion Drift excretes exocrine, a viscous translucent Infestation-infused liquid, that acts as water in the environment. Due to its Infested nature, exocrine does not allow non-Infested matter, regardless of weight or size, to traverse through it. Only fish and specialized fishing spears crafted from the Infestation can pass through exocrine.

There are Infested, Orokin/Infested hybrid, and pure Orokin fish that are capable of flight, and can be caught using any fishing spear when they emerge from the exocrine. Players can engage in spearfishing to catch these Infested biomes, which can then be used as resources to craft various Entrati items or gifted to Daughter to earn DaughterToken64 Daughter Tokens.

ConservationEdit

Main article: Conservation

Wildlife on Cambion Drift draw great interest to Son. Players can track creatures, use Echo-Lures to draw them out, and Tranq Rifles to subdue them, rewarding tags to be traded in for SonToken64 Son Tokens and Orbiter decorations.

The Velocipods that roam are passive to the Tenno and can be ridden on like a K-Drive.

Vulpaphyla and Predasite variations are targeted by the Infested. If they take damage from the Infestation, before or after being sedated, they will become "weakened". They can then be captured and brought to Son to create a modular companion through the process of Revivification.

MiningEdit

Main article: Mining

Another means of getting resources in the plains is through mining; players can find mineral veins, visible as bright glowing marks, scattered throughout the landscape, which can then be mined with a dedicated cutting tool. The mineral veins appear in orange (ores), rather than red for other landscapes, and blue (gems) and can be spawned on any infested surface, including stalks and tendrils, but not on actual rocks.

Ores and Gems are used in a variety of crafting recipes, and these can also be traded in to Otak to earn OtakToken64 Otak Tokens.

BountiesEdit

Main article: Bounties

Bounties are randomly generated quests in which the player completes a series of short objectives from Mother. Upon completion of a set of missions, the player will randomly receive a reward from the reward pool, along with MotherToken64 Mother Tokens.

Mother can appear in various spots outside the Necralisk and continues to provide bounties, allowing players to embark without needing to return to the Necralisk.

Points of InterestEdit

Requiem Obelisk (Reactive Crystal)Edit

Along the surface of the Cambion Drift are obelisks that depict a Requiem symbol. When their Reactive Crystal is shot with the Operator's VoidTearIcon b Void damage, the obelisk will activate for 90 seconds, with a cooldown of 12 seconds. Depending on the Requiem symbol depicted, the obelisk produces various effects against the nearby Infested that spawn, and killing these affected Infested yields various Cambion Drift resources near the obelisk, including fishing and mining parts.

Obelisks have a small health bar that is depleted by each instance of activation damage, eventually breaking and becoming inert once the bar fully depletes. It is recommended to use low-damage attacks so that the obelisk can be activated a greater number of times.

Image Name Effect Resource Acquisition
FassRequiemIcon Fass (Chaos) Applies the Confusion Effect, making enemies attack each other. Explodes every 12 seconds. The Effect lasts 6 seconds. Confused units cannot be attacked until the Effect ends (possible bug, needs confirmation). Confused enemies killed by other confused units or the Operator.
JahuRequiemIcon Jahu (Form) Creates a 10m sphere that pushes enemies away. Deals no damage, but occasionally generates Impact b Impact proc on enemies. Only functions when there is a Warframe or enemy (but not just an Operator) within the radius. Repelled enemies killed by the Operator.
KhraRequiemIcon Khra (Time) Slows down enemies in range every 12 seconds. The effect lasts 6 seconds. Slowed enemies killed by the Operator.
LohkRequiemIcon Lohk (Void) Damages enemies with claw-like pulses. Enemies killed by these pulses.
NetraRequiemIcon Netra (Decay) Summons two friendly Deimos Tendril Drones. A maximum of four can be active at a time. The tower will not reactivate until there are less than four drones alive. Drones are killed when the obelisk deactivates, and become lootable corpses at that time. Enemies killed by the Deimos Tendril Drones.
RisRequiemIcon Ris (Light) Blinds enemies in range every 12 seconds. The effect lasts 6 seconds. Blinded enemies killed by the Operator.
VomeRequiemIcon Vome (Order) Tethers enemies, preventing them from leaving its 10m bubble. Tethered enemies killed by the Operator.
XataRequiemIcon Xata (Truth) Randomly cycles into a different symbol when activated. Returns to Xata when the effect ends. See above for the respective effect.

Isolation VaultsEdit

Main article: Isolation Vault

Deep beneath the surface, old Infested-ridden Entrati ruins contain Isolation Vaults that are guarded by Necramechs. These vaults were once containment chambers for Orokin explorers of the Void, who brought back treasures from their travels.

EnemiesEdit

InfestedEdit

Infested Centipede

The Grey Strain of the Infestation evolved to create new forms of Infested as Deimos units. Existing units such as Chargers, Runners, and Ancient Healers have their appearance modified, having more tendril growth and orange/violet coloration.

Deimos Tendril Drones act as flying sentries and will occasionally latch themselves onto Warframes.

Cambion Drift is home to the gargantuan Deimos Carnis, Deimos Genetrix, Deimos Jugulus and Deimos Saxum. All of these heavy Infested units are immune to Viral b Viral status.

Most Infested gain the ability to shoot homing projectiles at airborne targets, making Archwing just as risky as the other two open world areas. A single hit will usually eject the player out of their archwing and force them to the ground.

NecramechsEdit

Necramech
Main article: Necramech (Enemy)

These Entrati machines from The Old War roam autonomously about the Cambion Drift, unable to distinguish friend from foe due to their corrupted precepts. During Vome, surface Necramechs will be allied to the player, killing nearby Infested. During Fass, however, Necramechs on the surface will be deactivated, allowing Operators to perform Transference on them.

Minor FeaturesEdit

Ridable VelocipodsEdit

VelocipodPoster
