Nightwave banner

Greed. Brutality. Oppression. True stories, all, and the System is full of them. Dreamers? You listening? The System needs you performing your good deeds for the day. Nora needs it. Needs you to act. To change things. Hear the news, Dreamers. Hear it, or be it. Your call. Because in Nora's System, no good act goes unrewarded. This is Nora Night. You're listening to Nightwave.

Alert and Challenge Reward since Update 24.3

Nightwave is a pirate radio station hosted by the enigmatic Nora Night. Ingame, Nightwave serves as a system that offers various player rewards such as Mods, Resources, Cosmetic items and more through the completion of various mission challenges.

Apart from the reward system, Nightwave will also feature various stories that further expand upon WARFRAME's lore through their broadcasts.

Access

Nightwave can be accessed from either the Orbiter's Navigation console, or on the Main Menu, through a banner on the lower right corner of the screen. Alternatively, players can interact with the Orbiter's Radio Scanner to the right of the ramp to access Nightwave.

Mechanics

The Nightwave system consists of daily and weekly challenges that players can complete to earn Nightwave Standing, which is used to rank up through Nightwave's 30 levels, with each level requiring ReputationLargeBlack10,000 to level up. Every level attained grants unique rewards, with much rarer rewards being available at much higher levels. Unlike with traditional Syndicate standing, Nightwave Standing is only used to increase Nightwave ranking, and any leftover Standing upon leveling up is carried over to the next level.

Upon reaching Rank 30, players can prestige and reset their rank to 0. Each subsequent rank-up will then only unlock a special currency called Cred to be spent in Cred Offerings.

Series

Nightwave's reward system is presented in limited-duration seasons called Series, with each Series featuring its own story and set of level-up rewards themed after its accompanying lore. Each Series lasts for 10 - 11 weeks, and upon completion, all player progress with Nightwave will reset.

The current series is The Wolf Of Saturn Six.

Acts

Acts are challenges that players can complete to earn ReputationLargeBlackStanding to increase their rank in Nightwave. They fall under three categories of difficulty: Daily, Weekly, and Elite Weekly.

Daily Challenges are introduced daily, with each lasting 3 days, while Weekly and Elite Weekly Challenges are introduced on a weekly basis, and last for 7 days. Apart from the duration, the different Challenge tiers also offer different levels of difficulty, with Daily Challenges having the easiest tasks, and the Elite Weekly having the most difficult ones.

Possible known challenges for an Act are:

Note: Each challenge saves/updates its objective automatically with each step, so no progress is lost if a mission fails or is abandoned.

Cred Offerings Store

Apart from the ranking rewards, Nightwave also features a Creds Offering store, where players can purchase various items such as Aura Mods and Cosmetics.

During each series of Nightwave, players can earn an exclusive special currency by ranking up, which are then used to purchase the aforementioned Nightwave offerings. Note that after the end of a particular series, this currency will expire and the next Nightwave series will introduce a new currency to spend.

Cred Offerings

Note that these items are on 7-day rotation, so not all of these items will be offered at any given point. These items can be purchased using Wolf Cred.

Story Of The Wolf Of Saturn Six (Warframe)

Saturn Six Fugitives

  • In addition to Acts, reputation can also be earned by finding and capturing three Saturn Six Fugitives that spawn randomly in missions, granting ReputationLargeBlack50 per Capture. If they die instead of being captured (either through dying while capturing or waiting too long) no reputation will be given but it will still count as them being eliminated. A secondary objective labeled "Fugitives Eliminated" will appear when they spawn in a mission. These enemies appear in "unaffiliated" categories in codex despite their lore came from Grineer.

Trivia

    • This is the first time in WARFRAME history that the developers coordinated the release of new gameplay content on all platforms.[1]
