The Hive Sabotage mission is a variant of the regular Sabotage mission. This type of mission was first introduced in the Operation Breeding Grounds event, and is now a regular mission node on Eris.


This mission requires players to destroy three Infested Hives, each protected by five Infested Tumors that must be destroyed before the hive can be harmed. Each Hive destroyed will trigger an environmental hazard depending on the type of Hive destroyed, and will also increase the Infested spawn rate.

Corpus Resource Caches, similar to those found in the Orokin Derelicts, serve as a secondary objective. There are three caches hidden throughout the map, rewarding an additional item at the end of the mission for each cache discovered.


Planet Mission Name Faction Level
ErisNaeglarInfested30 - 34
There are a total of 1 Hive Sabotage Missions


  • Hives which are damaged, but not destroyed, will regenerate after 5 seconds of not taking any damage.[1]
  • Codex Scanners and Synthesis Scanners reveal Infested Tumors within a short range through terrain.
  • Enemy radar from Enemy Sense or similar mods will show Infested Tumors on the map as yellow arrows.


The reward level and count depends on the number of Resource Caches found. In order to receive the third reward, all three caches must be opened.

    • I came into a already started match where they had that bug and it fixed when one player disconnected.
    • Just had this happen to myself, and on a kuva siphon as well. Feeling very salty having to abort.
