A bad day fishing's better than a good day working!

ExcaliburFishing

Fishing is a non-combat activity available during Free-Roam missions, that allows players to catch fish which can be used as resources for various crafting requirements. It was first introduced in Update 22.

Fishing BasicsEdit

Preparing to FishEdit

Once players have earned enough Standing with the associated Landscape's faction (Ostron in Cetus, Solaris United in Fortuna) by completing Bounties or Incursions, they are able to purchase a Fishing Spear at their fishing supplier (Hai-Luk or The Business respectively).

Once a Fishing Spear has been purchased, the player can equip it in the Gear menu through their Arsenal. Note that it is not necessary to equip more than one spear (or any baits, dyes, etc.) as all available spears and other fishing utilities will be selectable through the fishing menu once any spear has been readied.

After the spear is equipped, players can head out into the Plains of Eidolon or the Orb Vallis to find eligible bodies of water such as ponds, lakes, or the ocean. In order for fish to begin spawning the player must first bring out the fishing spear from the Gear menu (default hold Q  and select the spear).

Fishing MenuEdit

Once the player has armed themselves with a fishing spear, the fishing gear menu will automatically appear on the bottom right of the screen, indicating the currently selected spear, dyes and bait. Players can change their current selection by holding the respective key (1 , 2  or 3 ), while pressing the respective key will cast that current dye or bait. Consequently, use of Warframe abilities (bound to the number keys) will be suppressed while armed with a spear.

Catching FishEdit

While aiming the spear (default hold RMB ), environmental sounds will be dampened, allowing the player to listen for the splashing and bubbling of nearby fish. Use the direction of the sounds to locate your possible prey and spear them by pressing the fire button (default LMB ). A suggested tip is to watch for the fishes' name in conjunction with the bubbling/splashing sound. The spear—as a throwable projectile—has travel time and a slight ballistic arc, therefore the player must adjust trajectory based on distance from the fish (i.e. aim minimally above the fish to compensate for the arc and slightly ahead of the fish for the travel time). Abilities like Zephyr's Jet Stream can decrease the spear's travel time. Luminos Dye illuminates all fish in a given area with a bright blue glow, making fish incredibly easy to spot and easier to catch.

If successful, the player will be shown holding the catch with statistics on species, size (small, medium, or large) and gross weight displayed in the lower right infobox. If the player misses or disturbs the water by walking into it, nearby fish will be alerted and quickly scatter away. Scaring the fish multiple times can result in them de-spawning.

While fishing, the player is completely vulnerable to nearby enemies, and is unable to use any abilities or weapons with the exception of quick-melee (default E ), if a melee weapon is equipped.

Shock SpearsEdit

While the Servofish in Orb Vallis can be caught using the Fishing Spears from Cetus, doing so will damage the Servofish, which will reduce its value in both Standing gain and parts given when dismantling.

Catching Servofish safely requires the use of Shock Spears, which can be purchased from The Business using Solaris Standing. Shock Spears are used identically to Fishing Spears on the initial throw, however once the Servofish has been hooked, a silver shock gauge will appear. This initiates a minigame where players have to time the movement of a white marker to land on the small red section of the gauge using the fire button (LMB ).

If successful, a shock pulse stuns the Servofish allowing it to be lifted from the water. If the player fails to land the marker on the red zone, the player will be staggered and fish will escape. If the player does nothing, the bar will reset and are able to reattempt right away.

Fish in Plains of Eidolon however, cannot be caught with Shock Spears.

RewardsEdit

Player-caught Fish can be redeemed either for Standing, or cut up into generic resources and a resource specific to each type of fish. Fisher Hai-Luk handles such services on Cetus, while The Business handles the same job on Fortuna.

Orb VallisEdit

The Orb Vallis, due to its lack of actual bodies of water, does not have traditional biological fish, instead being home to aquatic machines called Servofish, which are autonomous drones tasked with performing specific functions in the coolant lake and ponds out in the Vallis. Though they are mechanical in nature, their behaviors are still similar to that of biological fish.

One of the main differences of the Servofish is how the different qualities of fish are identified; while Cetus' fish are separated into small, medium and large size, the Servofish of the Vallis are sorted between Basic, Adorned and Magnificent models. The quality of a Servofish can be estimated by looking at how many attachments are on the fish as opposed to its size, eg. Tromyzon gain additional rings on their back at higher qualities. Additionally, none of the Vallis species require any bait to spawn, instead any rare fish can potentially be found without luring it, though with greatly diminished chances of appearing.

BaitEdit

HotspotBubble

A ripple on the Plains of Eidolon indicating a hotspot near the shore.

Bait are consumable items that can be used to increase the chances of certain types of fish appearing. Any baits are automatically held in the fishing gear menu.

In order for bait to attract fish, players must throw them near a hotspot, an area of water where fish are the most active. Hotspots differ in appearance depending on their location:

  • In the Plains of Eidolon they appear as visible white patches of bubbles rippling in a circular pattern
  • In the Orb Vallis they appear as an oily fluorescent sheen emitting slight green aurora-like light glows

This will activate the bait, which will then increase the chance of certain types of fish spawning within the hotspot. The bait's initial effects will last for up to 3 minutes, during which it has a high chance of making its target fish appear on the spawn intervals within that period. The bait will visually disappear after that period, however it will still have a much smaller chance of making the target fish appear on subsequent spawns in the same hotspot. If the hotspot is still active after the bait expires, players can throw in another bait of either the same type or a different one to attract the desired fish. Different baits will work when luring their fish type in the same hotspot (however the same bait will not stack its own effect) but this will reduce the chance of luring a specific fish.

A baited hotspot will remain visible until all fish within the area have been caught or escaped, in which case the ripples will disappear, indicating that the hotspot has expired.

Certain fish types, like Norgs and Glappids, do not normally appear in standard fishing and thus require specialized bait to lure out. On the other hand, all Servofish types can appear even without bait, though using bait will increase their chances of appearing.

As of Update 23.10, fishing hotspots are shared between all members of a squad (host & client).

  • It is not necessary to aim at the ripples in order for the bait to activate, simply throwing a single bait into the vicinity will do.
  • Throwing additional bait into the same hotspot will not increase the chances of fish spawning – only one bait is required to affect the hotspot. 
  • The targeted fish may spawn a distance away from the hotspot the bait is thrown in, sometimes appearing in other nearby hotspots. 
  • Bait designed to attract fish active during a certain time will attract fish regardless of what time of day it was used. For example, a day-bait used at night will attract Goopola, which are active at both day and night, but not Tralok, which are active at day only.

ProductsEdit

All fish/servofish species are graded into three classes (Small/Medium/Large for Plains, Basic/Adorned/Magnificent for Vallis). Specified fish weight/point value is purely cosmetic.

NotesEdit

  • The burbling of spawning fish is heard a few seconds before a fish actually spawns in.
  • Depending on the species (color and size), water (clear or filled with plants), water effects (reflection and lighting), and time of day (some fish are luminescent at night) it can be difficult and take a while to spot them.
    • Luminos Dye is the easiest solution, taking only a small amount of Ferrite, Iradite, and credits to produce ten 'charges' that will clearly highlight all fish in a decent radius for a short time.
    • The player can bullet-jump above the water-surfaces in order to scan for fish; using aim gliding, mid-air slides, and double-jumps to maneuver back to shore.
    • Ivara's Dashwire ability can create ziplines above the water to get a better spotting view, however, it is not possible to zoom in with the fishing spear while on the zipline. Additionally, throwing may not be immediate while balanced on the wire; the Warframe will wait until its arm is in position for a throw, affecting timing; aiming with the spear then moving along the zipline will also cause the spear to be thrown from the location where the action was initiated. A remedy is to zoom in and immediately throw the spear at the fish.
    • Banshee's Sonar ability can be used to highlight the fish with an outline briefly, though they won't get weak points or appear in minimaps.
    • Limbo will see fish with an entity outline while inside the rift, although the spear will not work since the fish are not inside the rift as well.
    • The Codex Scanner and Synthesis Scanner can be used to highlight fish briefly every few seconds.
  • Spear type does not influence spawning species, and all currently known species can be caught by any spear, although non-specialized spears will require several hits to catch fish they are not designed for.
    • This can be counteracted by Warframe abilities that buff weapon damage, such as Volt's passive, Electric Shield, or Rhino's Roar.
    • Spears are affected by Flight Speed buffs, such as Zephyr's Jet Stream.
    • Ivara's Navigator ability can be used to steer the fishing spear.
  • More likely that the fish tend to spawn at the moment when you are equipping the spear. If you can't see any fish around and hear no burbling try to equip the weapon than re-equip your spear once or twice.
  • Wading into the water will scare away the fish. At night, contact with landlocked water will also apply a weak Magnetic b Magnetic proc, quartering your shield capacity for 1 second and draining 100 energy.
  • Fish are tradeable as crafting components.
  • The number of fish caught is affected by a Resource Booster.
  • The base number of fish spawns is affected by a Resource Drop Chance Booster .
  • Transference and Warframe abilities cannot be cast while wielding a Fishing Spear and will remain so until the player switches to a weapon. However, quick melee can still be used.
    • While the normal ability buttons do not work with a Fishing Spear equipped, it is still possible to cast the "Currently Selected Ability" with a dedicated hotkey, as well as scroll through the list of abilities to select the desired ability.
  • If the player misses the fish, or randomly lobs the spear at the shoreline or underwater ground, there's a chance of getting a Boot (Plains of Eidolon) or Crewmen's Boot (Orb Vallis), and when reeled in, a banjo sound plays in the background. It can be sold for Credits64400.
  • Void Strike from the Madurai focus school does not appear to increase damage done by fishing spears (needs further testing)
  • Fishing cannot be performed on an Archwing or K-Drive.

Trivia Edit

  • Concept art for some of the fish species, particulaly the Mawfish, Mortus Lungfish, Norg, and even the Lanx, are viewable via the Art Gallery section of the Codex.
    • The Mawfish and Mortus Lungfish, or rather their models, were the first fish species to be "introduced" in the game proper; they can be seen swimming in the floor of the Helminth Infirmary.
  • The Mawfish is most likely based on an order of real-world, deep-sea fish called Gulper Eels, most closely resembling the Pelican Eel.

BugsEdit

  • Fish can swim through the floor near the shoreline, swimming below you inside the rock/earth. This can be seen using the Luminos Dye.
  • Fish can appear to be floating above the water. In this case, it is also possible for them to float near the water above the ground.
  • Attempting to equip any spear while Ivara's Artemis Bow is active will cause you to not be able to draw your spear until you are downed.
  • Luminos Dye range is reduced on low Geometry Detail. Increasing it fixes the problem.
  • Occasionally, fish may appear as a doubled image of themselves, making aiming/catching a bit more difficult.
  • Occasionally, while fishing in the ocean, bait and dye will not float on the surface but fall through the map. Leaving and reentering the plains usually fixes this (confirmed still happens in 23.0.7)
  • The Fishing Spear can become invisible when quick melee with a melee weapon, that is set to be not visible when holstered in the melee slot options. This can also cause a small time of immobility after throwing and catching the spear back.
  • Echowinders don't have the visual differences on their models in game despite having them in their menu icons.
  • Sometimes, after missing a spear shot, the spear will retract and begin spinning around the Warframe, who gets locked into the position where the spear would come to its hand, unable to move or use items. Entering archwing mode fixes this, and the bug will end itself after a few seconds.
  • You can sometimes call and use your Archwing if you equip your spear first before doing so.

Patch HistoryEdit

Hotfix 24.0.7
  • Changed the Sapcaddy Bait to the intended Mirewinder Bait. Broad-Spectrum Bait is your desired Sapcaddy cocktail.

Hotfix 24.0.5

  • The Eye-Eye now shows up during warm temperature only instead of cool temperature in Orb Vallis.
  • Recaster Bait is now correctly labeled as Longwinder Bait.
  • Narrow-Spectrum Bait was incorrectly described as attracting Tinks and Brickies (they are common fish and only require Broad-Spectrum Bait; Narrow-Spectrum Bait attracts Recasters and Eye-Eyes).

Update 24.0

EMP Spearfishing!

A new take on the Plains of Eidolon Fishing Mechanic!

The best way to catch the robotic 'Servofish' in The Orb Vallis is with The Business' offering of PULSE SPEARS - tools used to disable mechanical fish! This new type of fishing spear maintains the high quality of every Servofish you catch.

The Business offers 2 variants of Pulse Spears:

SHOCKPROD

Built to recover Servofish without damage. Delivers a disabling electromagnetic pulse after a successful hit, if timed correctly

STUNNA

Successful electromagnetic pulses radiate outward also disabling any nearby servofish

Equip this in your Gear Spiral to begin your journey of catching Servofish in the Coolant! The fishing mechanic here is different - not only is aiming precision necessary, but also timing your Pulse detonation! Click within the red bar to succeed!

https://thumbs.gfycat.com/ImaginaryAmusingAfricanparadiseflycatcher-mobile.mp4

Your Ostron Spears will still work in The Orb Vallis, but the fish will be damaged. The key is to catch undamaged fish with the specialized Pulse Spears.

There are 13 species of Servofish to be discovered in the various Coolant areas of the Orb Vallis. Some require Baits - be sure to read descriptions to find your very own:

  • Eye-Eye
  • Scrubbers
  • Echowinders
  • Mirewinders
  • Longwinders
  • Sapcaddy
  • Brickie
  • Tink
  • Kriller
  • Recaster
  • Charamote
  • Tromyzon
  • Synathid
Baits

Baits are used to attract certain species of Servofish. Acquire them with Solaris United Standing and read about their uses in the descriptions!

Update 22.20
Spear Fishing HUD Changes:

  • You can now Quick Melee while Spearfishing in the Plains!

Update 22.0
