“It is done. The Cicero Crisis is no more.”
This event has concluded on all platforms.

Join your fellow Tenno in Warframe's latest event: The Cicero Crisis!

The Forests of Earth have evolved. Centuries of manipulation by the Orokin have created breeds of super plants that grow tougher and faster than anything seen before. Until now the Grineer have been unable to conquer these unruly forests, but Councilor Vay Hek plans to use his Cicero Toxin to clear the land and make way for Grineer settlements.

Visit Earth and sabotage Councilor Vay Hek's plans!

How to Participate[]

  • Buy the blueprint bundle of the anti-toxins at the market!
  • Visit and Select the unique Mission located on Earth!
  • Be sure to equip your Codex Scanner! Scan plants on Earth to collect necessary samples and data of mysterious plants! Scan everywhere! The flowers are rare, but in obvious places!
  • Collecting the correct number of plant scans will unlock the permanent use of a Foundry Blueprint that can be used to create one of a variety of anti-toxins.
  • Equip and carry one of the anti-toxins into a mission and load it into the Cicero Toxin injectors that you must find in the mission.
  • Work solo or with a team. Each player can take a different anti-toxin into the mission to create a combination of anti-toxins. Combining anti-toxins will make them last longer and increase your score.
  • These Forest missions will have dynamic Day and Night settings! Every six hours, Day will change to Night, and Night to Day as the cycle goes on! New plants will appear throughout the Day and Night, so be sure to explore at different times!

Event Start and End Time[]

The Cicero Crisis started on December 18, 2013 and ended on Monday, January 6, 2014 at 12 PM EST. The in-game timer appeared to have changed to end on Sunday, January 5 at 12 PM EST.

Upon completing each mission, all Tenno in your Squad will receive the same point score. This score is determined by the rarity of anti-toxins used in the mission:

To achieve a 100-point score, all four Tenno in your Squad must bring a Rare anti-toxin worth 25 points each, and successfully defend the Cicero Toxin injector.

  • As of Hotfix 11.5.2 (2013-12-20), a single Vermillion anti-toxin will achieve a 100-point score. It takes 4 times the resources of the Lapis anti-toxin to craft. If four Vermillion anti-toxin is injected, the neutralization will reach 400 points at the cost of the defense being four times longer.

Solo and Squad Scoring – Aim for your personal best! Your best mission score will be saved. These score points do not accumulate over the event.

Clan Scoring – Clan scores will accumulate to determine Clan winners at the end of the event.

  • A Gold, Silver or Bronze Clan Statue
  • An example of the reward message can be found here.


  • Zooming with the Right Mouse Button while holding a scanner will highlight all scannable items in your view and behind objects. This is useful for finding small ingredients blended in the environment. If you also click the left mouse button rhythmically while zoomed in, you can cause the objects to stay glowing orange, instead of blinking (which makes it easier to see).
  • Although Toxin Injectors can be scanned regardless of mission, injectors scanned during Recon/Exterminate missions will not count towards codex progress.
  • Holding the left mouse button, while playing as a client and not as the host, will let you scan in 3rd person, allowing for a greater field of view.


  • The Cicero toxin is named after a Roman philosopher named Marcus Tullius Cicero.
  • Strangely, the Codex entry of this machine mentions the faction as Tenno, while it is clearly Grineer in design.
