The ground of the Plains is erupting with vile beings of Grineer origin - repugnant Ghouls that overrun their victims in a gruesome mass of limbs and toxin.

—Official Video Description of Ghoul Purge

Ghoul Purge is a recurring world state event which occurs once every few weeks, located at Plains of Eidolon, Earth. During the event, the plains will be populated by an increased amount of Ghouls and will remain so until the Ghoul population has been exterminated.


MechanicsEdit

When the event starts, the Lotus will send the player an inbox message informing them about the Ghoul Purge. Konzu will subsequently offer two more Ghoul-themed bounties within their bounty boards, and completion of these bounties will contribute to the overall extermination of the Ghoul population.

These bounties are very similar to the basic ones that can be taken on the bounty board in Cetus, with certain objectives being more focused on the Ghouls themselves than usual. The following is the list of bounty tiers that appears as well as the rewards associated with it.

Mission TypesEdit

Ghoul Bounty mission types are largely Ghoul-themed just variants of regular Bounties. A large portion of them do not have bonus criteria and as such, it is impossibe to get an end-of-bounty bonus reward from them.

View Ghoul Bounty Missions List
  • Ghoul Alpha Assassinate

These Bounty missions involve killing a Grineer Ghoul Alpha (Ghoul Auger Alpha or Ghoul Rictus Alpha) who will erupt from the ground once a minimum of 20 Ghouls have been killed within a target area.

Players have a total of 5 minutes with which to kill the necessary amount of Ghouls to draw out the Alpha, and then kill it. The mission fails if the timer expires.

Bonus: Not implemented.

  • Ghoul Cache Recovery

This mission tasks players with finding three Supply Caches within a marked location, visible as a yellow circle on the minimap. The Supply Caches take the form of small spherical orange containers with orange lights, which will emit a distinct sound that can be heard about 30 meters from its position. The caches can be scanned, so using a Codex or Synthesis Scanner can aid the search. Players must find all three caches within the allotted amount of time, ranging from a minimum of 2:40 minutes to a maximum of 3:00 minutes. Failing to find all three caches will result in failure, although players will still keep any resources collected from successfully opened caches.

Bonus: Complete within X minutes.

  • Ghoul Alpha Capture

Similar to a standard Capture mission, players must find the Ghoul Capture target within the designated area. Once found the target will begin running towards an extraction point, and players must deal enough damage to the target in order to immobilize them, allowing players to interact with the target, which will begin the 5 second capture process. Grineer reinforcements will arrive via drop pod once players reach a downed capture target, which can hamper recovery efforts.

Bonus: Complete without killing an enemy.

  • Ghoul Exterminate

For Ghoul Extermination missions players must clear a minimum of twenty Ghouls from a minimum of two Burial Grounds (40 Ghouls in total). Unlike the regular Exterminate bounties, leaving the designated area for too long before an objective is complete will cause the mission to fail.

Bonus: Not implemented

  • Ghoul Defector Rescue

Rescue requires players to find a Ghoul Defector being escorted by 4 Grineer guards and free them. When approaching the designated mission area, the defector and their guards will be highlighted by waypoints showing their location. Alerting the guards to the player's presence will cause them to activate a bomb collar strapped to the defector, which will begin a 30-second countdown until the defector is killed. Players must first kill the 4 guards, which will then allow players to hack the bomb collar, cancelling the timer if successful. Once the defector is freed, players must lead the them towards a designated extraction point, and the mission will be complete once the they reaches the extraction point.

Bonus: Not implemented

  • Grokdrul Injection

This unique mission requires players to find and kill an enemy carrying an orange Power Cell. After grabbing the Power Cell, the players must fill it by collecting 10 Grokdrul dropped from killed enemies or from containers, within 5 minutes. Once filled, the Power Cell is fed to a Grokdrul Injector (a modified extractor) dropped in the vicinity of the players. The players must then defend the injector until all the Grokdrul has been injected.

Bonus: Not implemented
