The Star Chart is the interface used to access missions through the "Navigation" segment in the Orbiter. It shows the celestial bodies of the Solar System (also referred to as the Origin System). Each celestial body (also referred to as "planet") has its own set of resources and a backstory regarding the faction that is controlling the planet (accessed through Cephalon Fragments). Some planets may feature more than one faction at the same time.

Once completing the The Archwing Quest, the player will have the possibility to switch between the normal Star Chart and the Empyrean one, and even if they haven't a built Railjack they can join other teams to play this game mode starting from Earth Proxima. More advanced planets aren't unlocked through Junctions but require a certain Intrinsics level.

Part of the star chart indicating unavailable, available and completed missions.


When zooming in or clicking on a celestial body, the player sees how they are linked through Solar Rails Junctions, beginning with Earth, and can select individual mission nodes to play.

The Star Chart uses the following symbols: 

  • Empty grey rhombus, with grey lines leading to it: This mission is not yet available because the missions leading to it must be completed first. 
  • Light blue rhombus, with light blue lines leading to it: This mission has not yet been completed but is available because an adjacent mission has been completed. 
  • White rhombus, with white lines leading to it: This mission has been completed but remains available for replay. 
  • Particular missions have special symbols, such as Dark Sectors with the default Clan logo, Quest missions with the Quest symbol, Syndicate missions with their respective symbol, Fissures with a flame symbol, Bosses with an eye wearing a crown, Junctions with a rhombus on top of a chevron insignia, Sorties with four diamonds within a flag, and Nightmare missions with a white swirl inside of red rhombus symbol.
  • If at least one node of a planet is controlled by a Kuva Lich, the planet itself will appear in the Star Chart surrounded by red blood droplets. Zooming on the planet will show the fog only on the nodes actually controlled by the Lich. Next to the planet name, the Kuva Lich symbol is shown.

Besides the mission nodes, some planets have a Relay Node. The available relays differ between the PC/Switch, PS4, and XB1 versions and two of the available relays will be locked behind a Mastery Rank of either 4 or 8. In addition, a special Relay called Maroo's Bazaar can be found on Mars and serves as a trading hub for players. Earth and Venus also feature Landscapes, which can be directly accessed from the Star Chart, and town hubs with their own nodes which offer unique Syndicates and vendors. Missions in Landscapes, called Bounties, can not be started from the Star Chart but only in the towns or in the Landscapes themselves.

Certain planets might have nodes that can not be immediately accessed even if the nearby nodes were completed. Clicking on them will show the requirements needed to play those missions: usually the completion of a specific Quest or a certain Mastery Rank.

Three locations can only be accessed with keys: the Orokin Derelict, the Clan Dojo, and the Mutalist Alad V assassination node.

Planets/Celestial Bodies List


  • Completing mission nodes for the first time yields various amounts of mastery points:
    • Clearing the main objective of a Mission node and extracting will grant an average of ~63 mastery points.
    • Victory against the opponent frame in a Junction grants 1,000 mastery points.
  • The specific enemy that appears on the mission detail screen (upon highlighting cursor on a mission node) has a markedly increased chance of spawning among the enemies present in that mission.
    • This can be a useful feature when farming for specific mods or resource from a specific enemy (like Oxium from Oxium Osprey).
  • As of Update 27.0, there are a total of 257 nodes that can be completed. This includes the 25 Railjack nodes on Earth Proxima, Saturn Proxima, and Veil Proxima.
    • All of the nodes are NOT required for unlocking higher level content.


  • Since Update 19.0, the Orbiter's reflection map is visible as the static background image behind the planets on the star chart. The image cannot be zoomed in normally, but through some UI glitching the player can zoom the foreground image out, allowing the user to see the majority of the image.

Patch History

Hotfix 28.2.1
  • Fixed your Warframe becoming hidden after swapping back and forth from normal Star Chart to Railjack Star Chart.

Update 28.1

  • The Star Chart Quest FX indicator will now still appear when you are zoomed out.
  • Fixed cases of using a Grustrag Three Beacon to escape a mission prematurely and it counting towards Star Chart progression.
  • Fixed the Star Chart UI breaking when selecting an Invasion mission from the WSW with the Railjack Star Chart open.

Hotfix 28.0.6

  • Fixed clicking Dojo when in the Liset from the Railjack Star Chart not functioning.

Update 28.0

  • Star Chart Nodes have been given a fresh new look and functionality upon hover!
    • Hovering over a Node will display a new tileset/accompanying enemy image and gamemode icons respective to the available game modes.
    • Upon clicking a Node that has numerous game modes available, a selector will open within the window for you to choose your game mode.

Hotfix 27.3.7

  • Fixed Lua and Kuva Fortress sometimes disappearing when zooming far out in the Star Chart.

Hotfix 27.2.1

  • Fixed missing Star Chart node lines when HDR is enabled.

Update 27.2

  • Fixed Clients experiencing infinite loading when attempting to load into the Dojo from the Star Chart with the Host.
  • Optimized the way the Star Chart is stored to save nearly 2MB of memory.
  • Fixed scrolling the mouse wheel while hovering over a Planet in the Star Chart resulting in the Warframe to zoom in improperly.

Hotfix 27.1.2

  • Rewrote how Navigation caches the active session counts to reduce latency and reduce server load (it should now update roughly 5x as frequently).

Hotfix 26.0.3

  • Kuva Siphons/Floods have been added to the World State Window Alert section in Navigation for increased exposure!

Hotfix 23.2.1

  • Fixed ‘Solar Map Progress’ stat displaying that there are 229 Nodes needing completion when there are in fact only *227. This stat was including the “invisible” Sanctuary Onslaught nodes, which resulted in the unbearable 228/229.

Update 22.20

  • New percussion-driven music has been added to the Star Chart and loading screens.

Hotfix 22.8.3

  • Replaced the Jupiter-Saturn Junction requirement of ‘defeat the Raptor on Europa’ with ‘complete Baal on Europa’. This is due to the Raptor’s boss fight getting increasingly difficult after his re-work, which created frustration for newer players attempting to unlock the Junction.

Hotfix 19.6.3

  • Fixed Friends/Clan screen presence information for real-time missions (Alerts, Invasions, Sorties, etc) showing the default mission type of the underlying Star Chart node.

Update: Specters of the Rail
