Infiltrate the enemy hold, and cripple their operation by striking at vulnerable points. The Minimap will lead you to the target. Once it has been destroyed, get to extraction as fast as possible.
—In-Game Description

Sabotage is a Mission type requiring players to reach an objective, and then destroy it before heading to extraction. The objective that needs to be destroyed differs depending on the mission's tileset.

Variants

Core Sabotage

On the majority of tilesets located on a planet's surface, players must find a reactor room, and destroy the reactor core. To destroy the reactor core, players will need to expose the reactor core by activating a control console, then proceed to destroy each of the cylinders sticking out of it. Up to 4000 objective affinity will be rewarded based on mission level upon the destruction of all cylinders.

Missions taking place on Corpus Outposts and Corpus Ice Planets feature a Corpus reactor design with hexagonal elements on a rotating core. Missions taking place on Grineer Settlements and Grineer Shipyards feature a Grineer reactor design with four sets of three cylinders which swivel outward from a stationary core.

Core sabotage missions have a chance of triggering a five-minute Timed Extraction event upon completion via the overhead message "Core Integrity Compromised". The mission will fail if players do not extract within the time limit.

Toxin Injector Sabotage

Missions in the Grineer Forest initially task players with finding a Toxin Mixer and destroying the Biocatalyst required for the creation of the Cicero Toxin. If players in the squad have Antitoxins in their Gear wheel, they may put them into the Mixer at this stage, granting the squad an additional reward at the end of the mission depending on the combined potency of all antitoxins used (as indicated by Antitoxin Strength) prior to commencement of the second mission stage. Objective Affinity is awarded upon Biocatalyst destruction which scales with mission level, up to a maximum of 4000 affinity.

Once the Toxin Mixer has been disabled, players are then tasked with sabotage of the Toxin Injector poisoning the soil.

  • If no antitoxins were inserted in the first mission stage, hacking the injector will send it into overdrive, causing it to destroy the toxin contained within. This sabotage outcome will award 1000 affinity at all mission levels.
  • If at least one antitoxin was inserted in the first mission stage, hacking the injector will cause it to pump the antitoxin mixture into the soil. This sabotage outcome will award 12,000 affinity at all mission levels.

Regardless of the sabotage outcome, players must defend the Injector from enemies for 75 seconds in order to complete the second mission stage.

Gas City Sabotage

Missions in the Corpus Gas City require players to find and destroy the elemental condensers and helium-3 processors aboard the city, gaining up to 1500 objective affinity for each group of equipment destroyed. They must then hack a terminal to begin overdriving the reactor core, and defend two consoles for 90 seconds from Nullifier Crewmen (or specialized Lancers for the Kuva Lich Controlled Territory variant) attempting to reverse the sequence until the overdrive process is complete. Completion of the overdrive process will award up to 2000 objective affinity. (The standard variant on Thebe, with a mission level of 18-20, grants 1000 and 1500 objective affinity for, respectively, equipment destruction and overdrive process completion.)

Reactor Sabotage

Main article: Reactor Sabotage

Introduced in Update 18.5 (2016-03-04), this Sabotage variant replaces core sabotage on the Grineer Galleon and Corpus Ship. In this mode, the player must sabotage up to two coolant stations of the reactor before destroying the reactor itself.

Sealab Sabotage

Main article: Sealab Sabotage

Missions in the Grineer Sealab require players to flood the main pumping room by destroying its pipes and then hack and defend a terminal. Depending on the type of lab, players are then required to either find and kill a Manic Bombard, or destroy cloning tubes and a research drone.

Hive Sabotage

Main article: Hive Sabotage

Missions taking place onboard Infested Ships require players to destroy three Infested Hives, that are protected by five Infested Tumors each; these must be destroyed before the hive can be harmed. Each destruction of a hive will increase the Infested spawnrate as well as triggering an environmental hazard, depending on the type of Hive destroyed. The hazards range from Lowered Gravity, Laser Hazard, Turret Activation, Cryogenic Leakage, DmgViralSmall64.png Viral Clouds and DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic Fields.

Orokin Sabotage

Main article: Orokin Sabotage

Orokin Sabotage takes place on Orokin Void and Orokin Derelict tilesets, where the objective is to close a Void portal allowing Corpus or Grineer troops entry into the Orokin structure. Closing the portal involves a mixture of Defense-style gameplay and Assassination where a special miniboss must be killed in the process.

Drilling Machine Sabotage

Missions on Grineer Asteroids task players with finding and destroying a number of Drilling Machines scattered around the map. Up to 4 Drilling Machines can be found during a mission. Unlike most other Sabotage variants, no affinity is rewarded for objective completion in this Sabotage variant.

Archwing Reactor Sabotage

Taking place on the Archwing Trench Run tileset, this mode sees players fly through a severely damaged Corpus Ship to destroy the reactor core. The reactor room has eight Auxiliary Power Cores that must be destroyed to expose the two larger Primary Power Cores that are the main objective. Deadly crisscrossing DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity beams activate whenever each auxiliary core is destroyed, making the area more hazardous. Unlike most other Sabotage variants, no affinity is rewarded for objective completion in this Sabotage variant.

Fomorian Sabotage

Main article: Fomorian Sabotage

Fomorian Sabotage is a special Sabotage Event variant that involves using Archwings to engage and destroy a Balor Fomorian before it reaches a Relay. Each Fomorian Sabotage mission has a timer displaying the time until it reaches the relay, along with a health counter showing the percent of health it has remaining.

In order to participate in a Fomorian Sabotage mission, a player must have an Archwing available, as well as a Fomorian Disruptor equipped in their Gear menu.

Deception

Main article: Deception

Formerly a mission type that phased out in Update: Specters of the Rail 0.0 (2016-07-08), this was changed into a Sabotage variant, then demoted to the first of two objectives in Grineer Settlement and Grineer Shipyard sabotage missions. The deception objective, which consists of inserting a datamass into a specific terminal, rewards up to 4000 objective affinity based on mission level.

Rewards

Many kinds of Sabotage missions contain Resource Caches. For each cache collected, the squad will earn up to 2000 affinity (based on mission level) as well as additional rewards depending on the kind of Sabotage mission. Like Spy Mission Vaults, these additional rewards will not be revealed until the mission is completed. On the mission completion screen, cache rewards will be marked with "Identified".

Sabotage missions in the Void give an additional Void Relic as an end of mission reward regardless of the number of discovered Resource Caches. These rewards are under the tiered drop tables under the Void tab. Archwing Sabotage missions do not feature Resource Caches but give an end of mission reward upon completion.

Notes

  • Prior to Update 18.5 (2016-03-04), sabotaging a core in either the Corpus Ship or Grineer Galleon missions would cause the entire level to become noticeably darker owing to lights being shut down, presumably due to lack of power from the now-destroyed reactor. There was also a chance of fire hazards breaking out.
  • Getting all 3 caches in Reactor Sabotage missions has a small chance to potentially reward Nitain Extract, and a Xiphos part – one part available from each tier.
