Escape is a hidden mission which can only be accessed when the player is defeated and "harvested" by the Harvester. The mission requires the player to collect their confiscated weapons and escape from the Zanuka Project facility in the Corpus Gas City in Jupiter.
When the player is engaged and defeated by the Harvester, his/her current session will end and automatically tranferred to the Escape mission.
The mission starts with the player being strangled on a Warframe dissecting equipment, as shown previously in the PS4 "The Profit" trailer. The Lotus will then disable the equipment and assist the player in escaping the facility. The mission requires the player to locate and retrieve their equipment before heading to extraction.
At the start of the mission, the player's warframe powers (i.e. any of the 4 powers that are specific to each warframe), all weapons, and Sentinel are confiscated and stored in varies locations throughout the map, leaving the player with only basic fist attacks. The player will still maintain other warframe mods such as shields, health and movement speed etc.
Until the player retrieves his/her first weapon, he/she will have to use fists (which is very weak) to fight enemies. It is recommended to avoid combat altogether, sneak around enemies without being seen, and run to retrieve each of your items. With bare fists, sneaking up behind Humanoid enemies and doing a stealth assassination is the fastest way to take them down (remember that MOAs are immune to stealth assassinations). Doing a charged attack will knock down any enemy you are fighting (your "fists" use the Obex animations).
The mission is a solo session and it will not allow you to be part of a group or invite any friends to join you.
Should a player die and forfeit or quit during the Escape mission, they will be returned to the Star Chart. The player will be unable to play in any other missions and must replay the Escape mission until it is completed.
The equipment (Warframe, Weapons, and Sentinel) that were captured will be rendered unusable until they redo the Escape mission. Unusable equipment will appear as red holograms of the original item. Switching Warframes and/or weapons before trying the mission again will not make any difference; the Warframe and weapons the player had when captured by Harvester will still be the ones to find/use in the Escape mission, and you will still have to complete this mission before you can do any other missions.
- The Escape mission was introduced in Update 11.7.3, and was indirectly mentioned in the build notes.
