This is Cantis of the Red Veil Resistance and I am asking for your help. You fight the Grineer and Corpus and so do we, that makes us allies. We aren't as strong as you and we don't have your weapons but we've pissed off those bastards just the same. Now they're coming after us, systematically capturing our comrades and holding them hostage – using our brothers and sisters as pawns against us. Tenno, will you help us bring them home?

If you do this, you must strike quickly and quietly. If you are seen, the enemy will execute our hostage before you can rescue them. Please, do not give them this chance.

We can't offer you much but we do have large cache of Specter Blueprints. Bring home our people and we will share these with you. Those who go above and beyond will receive a special token of our appreciation.

Thank you Tenno, Cantis

Specters Of Liberty was an event released with Update 13.2 (2014-05-01). The Tenno must rescue members of the Red Veil resistance movement that have been captured by the Grineer and the Corpus. The event began on Thursday, May 2, 2014, and ended at 12 PM EDT on Thursday, May 8, 2014.

What You Need To Know[]

  • Rescue Missions throughout the Star Map have been upgraded to Rescue 2.0. These missions – and their rewards – are a permanent addition the game.
  • Be stealthy and you'll remain unseen by the enemy. Use this to your advantage to take down the Wardens and release the hostage in your own time. Killing all of the Wardens will also earn you an extra point. (See below).
  • Lend the hostage your Secondary Weapon and they will help you take on the enemy.
  • If a Fire Hazard is active on the mission, all enemies will be on alert, know of your exact position, and turning the mission alert status off using a console will be pointless as they will be hurt by a fire patch and take it as being attacked and reactivate the alarm. This makes a stealth completion very difficult. 
  • This operation will end on Thursday, May 8, 2014 at 12 PM EDT.

What You Need To Do[]

  • The Specters of Liberty Operation will utilize the New Rescue 2.0 Missions. Exclusive Operation Rewards will be awarded to Tenno that achieve point levels while the Operation is live. (See Operation Rewards below.)
  • The Corpus and Grineer have upgraded their prison security. Both factions have deployed these new facilities to three different nodes. There are Easy, Medium, and Hard facilities. Access these nodes directly on the Star Chart to participate.
  • You need to locate the Red Veil Hostage. They are located in a cell within the prison block.
  • Hostages are protected by Corpus or Grineer Wardens. Use caution, if alerted to your presence, they will try to initiate the Execution Sequence.
  • If the Execution Sequence is started, a timer appears. If you fail to rescue the hostage before the timer runs out they will be killed.


Scoring is based on your performance during the rescue operation; 1 point rescuing the hostage, 1 point for killing all the wardens present in the holding cells and 1 point for not setting off the kill switch (and therefore, not being spotted by any of the wardens, or killing the wardens before they set it off).

Additionally, a score multiplier is added depending on the difficulty of the rescue mission; a x1 multiplier for Easy missions, a x2 multiplier for Medium missions and a x3 multiplier for Hard missions. If Nightmare Mode is active, the multiplier is boosted to x4 regardless of the node's original difficulty. Below are the Rescue missions involved with this event.

Node Planet Difficulty
Vallis Mars Easy
Numa Saturn Easy
Brugia Eris Medium
Mab Uranus Medium
Nereid Neptune Hard
Cinxia Ceres Hard
