Mercury is a planet under Grineer control. Unlike all other planets, Mercury does not have Dark Sector missions and cannot have any Invasions occur on it.
Mercury becomes accessible by defeating the
Specter in the Mercury Junction on Venus after completing the required tasks.
Assassination Target for Mercury is Captain Vor, located in the mission node Tolstoj. Captain Vor has a chance to drop blueprints for the Cronus longsword and his personal sidearm, the Seer. He also has a higher than average chance to drop Morphics.
Larunda Relay Status
Spy Missions: Special enemy variants have a chance of spawning during Spy missions.
Survival Missions: The following list(s) do not apply to Survival missions.
Apollodorus ( Survival) is one of the best places to farm Ferrite, yielding approximately 1,000 units every five minutes.
Odin ( Interception) is a good way to farm affinity for new players, since it can yield 300 affinity per captured objective and 500 for total control. Consider allowing the enemy to capture the objectives frequently for more affinity gain.
The Larunda relay on the PC platform is the earliest available relay, new players can enter this relay and potentially interact with more experienced players, as well as find other players who may be willing to play missions with them.
Nodes on Mercury mostly have the names of craters on the planet Mercury or names which reference Ancient Rome.

Update 14.0 Before , Mercury was the first planet accessible to players, beginning with the Terminus node.
Update 14.0 Mercury is currently the only planet that does not reward Warframe components from its assassination target.
Captain Vor, the boss of Mercury, is one of a few bosses to potentially drop more than one item after being defeated.
These items are, as mentioned before, the Seer and the Cronus
The other notable boss(es) to do this is the dual boss fight on Exta, Ceres, that awards the player Frost component blueprints, Miter components and the Twin Gremlins blueprints
Interestingly, one of the bosses fought there is also Captain Vor. This marks the second boss fight where a player can encounter him in.
On the PC platform, the Larunda Relay, the first relay available to new players, is available on this planet.
This relay does not have a Mastery level requirement to access.
