"Actualise... synergy... SYNERGISE. Growth... profit... GROFIT?! Fellow profiteers, this is a once-in-a-lifetime strategic investment opportunity. A game-changer in robotic combat solutions. We're taking big data from our Animo Project and doing a full-stack integration into our most lethal combat proxies. This is: AMBULAS, REBORN!"

Operation: Ambulas Reborn is an event released with Update 20.4. During the event, the Tenno must defeat new Ambulas combat MOA prototypes in normal outdoor Corpus missions in order to gain access to the Ambulas manufacturing facility on Hades, Pluto.

On PC, this event started on Thursday, May 4, 2017 and ended on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 2PM Eastern Time. Full details can be found on the Official Announcement Post.

Event Synopsis[edit | edit source]


Perrin Sequence leader Ergo Glast has intercepted disturbing communication from the profit-hungry Corpus, they are attempting to grow their military to dangerous and uncontrollable levels. Corpus Board Chairman Frohd Bek is inviting investors to witness the newest and deadliest Ambulas Prototype equipped with state-of-the-art processors called Animo. These investments will push the Ambulas Reborn project into full production.

For Frohd Bek, credits talk, and it’s apparent that he is deploying new Corpus technology to battles as product demos to display their lethality to his investors. Sightings have been confirmed on any Corpus planet region — this technology is not suitable for ship environments, look to terrain and open-air locations to engage.

Work with Ergo Glast and fellow Tenno to halt Frohd’s project and disrupt the Ambulas deployment before they see widespread use.

What you need to do[edit | edit source]

First thing's first: you need to encounter the Ambulas Reborn Prototypes head on. Frohd Bek is deploying them on new Condor Dropships. These deployments *only occur* on Corpus open-air surfaces - not ships!

Take down Ambulas in your encounters and ensure you Hack the target — this will release Animo Beacons which can be used to home in on the Ambulas facility.

Once you have collected enough Animo Beacons, you can head to the Ambulas Plant on Hades, Pluto for a final battle. Taking down Ambulas at the source will earn you a SupraVandal.pngSupra Vandal and the peace of mind that you've helped put a stop to Ambulas's production.

But these ANIMO BEACONS have other use...

What you need to know[edit | edit source]

Remember: Ambulas will only spawn on Corpus open-air Tile Sets like Corpus Ice Planet (except Syndicate missions).

You can collect Animo Beacons from Ambulas encounters based on the level of the Ambulas defeated:

Ambulas Level Drop Count
1-10 2
11-20 3
21-30 4
31-40 5
41+ 6

To encounter the final Boss Fight on Hades, you will need to earn a certain amount of Animo Beacons depending on if you are a Solo player or in a Clan. You will have a progress bar on your Navigation that displays this. This number is just total earned, they do not need to be kept (i.e. you can earn and spend and it still counts toward this reveal goal).

Revealing the Hades node requires:

Clan Size Required Animo Beacons Earned
Solo Player 200
Ghost 400
Shadow 1000
Storm 2400
Mountain 7200
Moon 31800

Challenging the Hades, Pluto node costs 40 Animo Beacons.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Ambulas only spawns in three tilesets: Corpus Ice Planet and Corpus Outpost and Corpus Gas City. They must also be Corpus-controlled, they will not spawn if controlled by the Infested or is in the middle of a crossfire.
  • More than one Ambulas can spawn on a single mission in an interval of 3-5 minutes. Similar to Bursas, additional Ambulas will spawn if enough time is spent in the same mission. For this reason, players will likely find it more effective to spend a large amount of time at an Endless node such as an Excavation or Defense mission rather than repeatedly running shorter missions.
  • Ambulas drops with a large entourage of elite crewmen and MOAs. They however, can all be killed before they even make it on the ground by bombarding the dropship with AoE attacks, Ambulas included.
  • All members of the squad get credit for each kill. If two members in the squad are part of the same clan, the clan will effectively get double credit towards unlocking the Hades node for each Ambulas killed.
  • As with most event reward weapons, SupraVandal.pngSupra Vandal is only awarded for the first successful completion of Hades by each player. It comes with an Orokin Catalyst already installed along with a free Weapon Slot.
