Gathering Tips

These are based on opinions and may not be true. These should be viewed as advice unless proven undoubtedly true. Check comments for confirmation. Results may vary. Please note each of the tips below is a subjective average, and may not necessarily represent your experiences.

  • Plato (Lua) guarantees a spawn of Sentients within the first couple of minutes. This is the most effective way of farming Neurodes, but bring a party, as Sentients do prove difficult.
  • Playing the assassination node of Lephantis on Deimos is one of the easiest ways to acquire Neurodes (1-2 average every run).
  • Newer players might find it helpful to search missions in Earth for Neuroptic Masses, the resource container for Neurodes. The chance for enemies to drop Neurodes is very low, making it worth spending time to search for the containers instead.
  • Sentient fighters spawning on Lua have a relatively high chance of dropping Neurodes (can be accessed upon completing The Second Dream quest).
  • Eris survivals and defense (including Dark Sectors) do NOT yield many Neurodes, about 1 for every 20 minutes/waves.


  • The singular form of Neurodes is Neurodes, according to the game.
  • The descriptions of Neural Sensors and Neurodes were swapped several times, at one point completely reversing what the components clearly were. This was finally reverted in Hotfix 15.16.2 to properly fit their obvious designs.
  • In computing, Neurodes (likely a portmanteau of neuron and node) serve as the building blocks of artificial neural networks.
  • Prior to the removal of Trials, a reusable Neurodes blueprint that can be purchased from the market for Platinum64100 or as a reward from The Law of Retribution Nightmare Raid:
