Quests are a set of interlinked missions that occasionally provide lore for WARFRAME's setting, as well as giving various rewards such as Warframes and Weapons upon completion. Some quests such as Vor's Prize are mandatory as players will automatically be redirected by the quest, while some are optional (like Hidden Messages and Howl of the Kubrow). Several Junctions require quests to be completed in order for the junction to be unlocked. Additionally, a number of junctions award quests on completion.
To activate a quest after it has been unlocked, simply walk to the Codex station in the Orbiter, select the Quests tab, select the desired Quest and click "Begin Quest". However, not all quests are activated this way, with some quests having hidden activation requirements and these do not even appear in the Codex until their completion. The player can only take one quest at a time, although they can change the active quest.
Some quests can be repeated, which is useful for Codex Scanning missed quest-exclusive enemies, although the main reward will not be given again.
Starting in Update 25.7, many quests have become replayable. To replay a quest, one simply goes to the completed quest's codex entry and selects "replay quest". When replaying a quest, transmissions, cutscenes, missions, and most related inbox messages will reappear normally, but the primary reward WILL NOT be given again. Therefore, one usually replays quests either to complete Codex Entries for quest-specific enemies, or simply for enjoyment.
However, as of Update 29.0, the following quests are still NOT replayable:
- Main quests: Vor's Prize, Rising Tide, Chimera Prologue, and Erra.
- Side Quests: Hidden Messages, The Limbo Theorem, Sands of Inaros, The Glast Gambit, Mask of the Revenant, and Heart of Deimos.
- Sometimes, completing a quest objective may not yield the next objective upon returning to the Orbiter (Quest markers in the Operations window, Inbox messages, etc.). Relogging or entering/exiting captura (or another mission) typically resolves this issue.
