  • So i recently got back into this game. I made a new account and got to Europa; no problems. I step into the raptor fight, 900+ sheilds, 600+ health, max Fast Deflection, and get one shot by a volley of rockets. Has anyone beaten this boss recently, becasue it seems pretty impossible now. Not only does it instakill you, it constantly respawns. It's supposed to drop some sort of bomb, but after barely managign to kill 3 of them, none dropped. Each time my squad runs out of revives. pleas help

    • yes i did i used a mag and a opticor. after you killed a raptor it drops a bomb and you must put this bomb in one of the three pipes.

    • There a different variants or the Raptor now, similar to the Hyena Pack. Each time you blow up the production thing, a new one appears. You need to kill the raptor that pops out, and it will drop a small red and green bomb. You only have about 5 seconds until the bomb explodes, so you need to be quick. Pick up the bomb and drop down the production pipe things before it explodes and you should be good. Keep doing this until all 3 are down. TBH, I've not actually completed the boss so I don't know what happens after that. Good Luck Tenno

    • How do you "put this in the pipe" so to speak because everytime i pick the bomb up and walk up to one of the pipes nothing happens, press X nothing happens, jumping down the pipe nothing happens. shifting weapon nothing happens. i just stand there like a retard and explode. i need to kill this boss to move forward so until this f*cker dies im stuck. whoever made this boss can go /%!=# himself right in the (!=/"+=+)(/%!)"!

    • run to the pipe, press the switch weapons key (i think it's F) will drop the bomb down the tube.

    • Some ridiculous shit there, ending up having to carry a clanmate after the buff. Got my ass handed to me the first try on my loki, ended up having to restart and switch to faction loadout for copus.


      I have no idea how they expect a new player to handle this on their own.

    • I've just beat this boss. First two stages are ridiculously easy with Ivara's prowl and dashwire. NS's blue bombs can't do any harm when you are far enough from floor and flying arc traps  can't fly after cloaked players.

    • I have a ftp account that im running through the new patch and its so awful. most guns even in t1 require plastids. You cant even get a decent amount of plastids till saturn, which you cant get to without beating the raptor, which is arguably the hardest boss in the game. G G

    • Used my undying Wukong build and Lifeeater Furis with Ammo Mutation Prime. 90% time Reviving teammates and Pets. 9% of the time scanning them so I don´t have to do Raptor again... 1% bombing it (Last time I looked at it It was lv 100 or so. Then Bombing. Originally went there to farm cephalons XD Random rework. But It is possible with a semi- good team. For new players it is time to scale it down to MR-Strength or something like this...

    • Im playing as a "new" player, so far haven't really hit the grindwall so many people talk about. my mods are done up pretty well imo i've been getting new weapons and warframes without really grinding for the resources. been having a ton of fun. i hit this boss. and i just, can't even. wot. how do. Tbh ive been playing solo and have just recently got to the boss recently haven't tried to squad up but on my 3 runs so far my boltor does shit all to it. and my warframes are loki and mag ( in the process of getting frost) so to start with loki. he's just mmmm *drools* every other boss is soloable with cheesey easy caus invis lol. but even with out using invis pretty much every boss was easy. but now this one can see me when im invis AND it goes invincible when i'm invis. well GG. then mag, i've used it a lot less than loki so i know im not using all the abilites well etc. but i just had a run through were her magnatize dissapeared as soon as i put it on the boss when it was 25%ish health. like what. The plus side of that run is the fact that if i was in a squad it'd probably be possible. but it should be possible solo.

      so any advice on why it seems to be stupid difficult would help. oh and im mastery rank 4 nearly 5 so if there is a specific weapon/frame i should grab just for this please suggest it. but the only resources avalible are any planets before this.

    • If you are in a clan, you could ask a member or friend to help you with it. Not a boss I would do solo... Or you try untill you get in a good team which can pull you through :-)

      If you want a frame sugestion, Wukong can tank them with the right Defy/ Rage build, but I think you might miss the mods...

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, the problem is lack of people, not your frame. Get three other people, and you'll be fine. Hell, just do a public game and you'll probably get one or two others along for the ride.

    • This is probably the hardest boss in the game, and it's stupid.  They need to nerf it's damage by a TON to put it in-line with the level it's supposed to be.

    • Clannie had trouble with this, and I was surprised by the change. Lotus tells you to wait until it pops out then drop the bomb, however, that's not true. You just grab it, jump in and switch guns to drop it. It did bug out saying 3/3 destroyed when only 1 had. Used Frost P, and sat in my bubble of safety while shooting the raptor down. Most annoying part was listening to lotus spam the same 3 comments repeatedly. The raptor can indeed down you extremely fast if you're unprotected. *Hides in his bubble to avoid reality*   -.-

    • I have just defeated it twice. First with someone who had a grenade launcher then solo using all NO POTATO equipment: Rhino with 1k HP, 700 shield and Fast deflection, Latron, Radiation+Serration+Puncture on Latron, Ammo supply on gear and lots of dodging and well timed reloading. Smashing helped a lot on the second Raptor because it releases some small weak electric damage drones. Rhino's shield helped a lot but they are defeatable if you pay close attention to Raptor's attack pattern, then dodge and spend your magazine with half decent timing. Bursas were easily defeated by radiation so it helped to have radiation on melee (I had twin basolk) too.

        Loading editor
    • Same guy as last post, correction: Rhino had 1050 shield, 780 HP, 380 armor.

    • I haven been throught the raptor round like 6..7 times first 2 times other guys killed it before i could get there and diddnt even get to see the dam thing, then sacrigicing power duration for speed i did manage to make it and be a part of the hunt.. i was using a Tonker and a sniper so it was doing a fare amount of damage with proc....the only thing i felt was this enemy need s a long range wepons... an ya we need to drop those bombs in the tunneles or else i guess those thing keep comming cose in the last round i think we fought 5 of those and were struggling but managet to finish it...

    • Soloed it just now, but it did take potatoed stradivar, dex furis, and inaros.

      And even then it needed two revives becase of me being unable to avoid all the craw they threw all over the arena.

      The biggest issue is the opening raptor with the missile barrage. In large part beause you have to shift your focus from the raptor to the floor and back constantly to avoid taking massive (1000+) damage.

    • Soloed it with a 5 forma Opticor. I used a Banshee to ensure the 1 shottiness as well. And the Opticor vaporizes them as expected.

      As long you can one shot them, it becomes more of a turkey shoot and just waiting to pick up the bombs. In fact, I was never at risk of dying at all.

      "As long as you can one shot them"

      Yes, because progressing players all have their handy opticors with 5 forma available right from the start.

    • I found that the new Raptor was most easily defeated by actually jumping INTO the pipe holding the bomb... did they change this?

      I is just a respawn out of bounds is it not?

      Also, Maximized Lanka can own without Banshee.

    • The first time I tried to do the raptor as a noob I failed, but I did it easily the second time by just using frost and inviting a random excal. Hide in a bubble and have someone else use exalted blade's ranged attack and it's easy. Just because you can't do something solo the first try doesn't mean it's broken or impossible. Now I farm it for mods by switch teleporting it into the shelter thing with Loki.

    • Did it first try with Mag. Maximize range and duration as much as you can and bring a Kohm (easy to get rank 2 weapon that is quite good btw) with radiation damage. You can put gas/mag on your secondary and melee for the crewmen etc. Hit him with a magnetized bubble as soon as he comes out of his pipe and whale on it with your Kohm. Gone in seconds and the explosion clears the trash out of the room nicely. Rinse and repeat with the next two little jerks. Only trouble I had was with the last one, whose lasers escaped the bubble for unknown reasons and took me out once. But they were easy enough to dodge after that.

    • I did the raptor fight four times. The first time we fought it we couldnt kill the first one. The second time we killed the first raptor near the tube closest to the entrance, but my team mate picked the bomb up a little late and decided to bring it to the middle and it exploded on him. The third time, we killed the first one but the second one was impossible to take down with raptor's little flying arc traps constantly spawning. Then the fourth time i found a random guy who i brought into the mission, he reached the fight area before i did and he already destroyed a tube. Then he just cheesed the rest of them and i was out of the mission in no time

    • I've beaten all 3 just so the third bomb could drop outside the map then again so the mission could randomly fail 1 melee attack from victory..I run raw melee tank build so I'm ticked.

    • Step 1: Kill Raptor

      Step 2: Drop bomb into pipe

      Step 3: Realize it didn't work so repeat 1 and 2

      Step 4: Cry after repeating 3 5 more times.

      Step 5: Put Boltor to head and pull trigger (quit and try again because run was probably bugged)

    • i tried using a lot of high rate of fire weapons on this boss but couldnt even manage to destroy the shield on the first raptor. After messing with mods and trying but failing three times i switched to my Vectis. As soon as i did i was able to solo this boss. The best strategy i found was using my frost prime warframe i would pop a bubble and work work the raptors health down with the vectis. The first raptor was the hardest because its intense rockets and crap but after that the other two were a breeze as my sentinel and high shields just made the seconds arc traps like little flies. High hit weapons blow these guys down however even solo i had to revive three times.

    • You can 3-4 shot it with a Vectis fairly easily. Run with Rhino, use iron skin and just take the damage to the face. Shoot the Raptor however many times you need to, sometimes if you are quick enough on its spawn., It will drop the bomb into the spot for you. If not, pick up the bomb and drop it on top, and voila. Easy solo like this every time.

    • Just soloed it yesterday. Wa gonna get help, but my roommate was arguing with me and dared me that I couldn't do it. Took my Frost Prime, Soma Prime (kitted for radiation damage), Afuris (only mid rank, radiation as weell, I think), and Jat Kittag (rank 26? Kitted for mag damage though i only got in a few hits with it). Killed the first one and it glitched, had to restart. Went back and tried it again, several glitches and several misses meant I ended up killing 7 or 8 of the drones. Wasn't that hard after I got in the groove, surprisingly. Frost's Snowglobe negates pretty much all of their attacks. Drop it (and stand at the far side of the globe if fighting the one with AoE) and they will hover nearby for you to just wail on. Mod for maximum ammo capacity. I ran out after like, 5 of them, and had to go killing adds for a bit to get back my ammo.

    • I just beat the bosses using the New Loka Ancient Healer Specters, a maxed out Tigris and a Carrier with the Ammo Case Mod. Went pretty well. Just hide inside the Ancient Healer inside the building while you are take almost no damage from anything. Works pretty good most of the time. Also would reccommend some sort of other specter to take out all the adds that the second raptor spawns.

    • For those who struggle...Just take a Banshee, stand by the tube, as soon as the Raptor is visible apply 1 or 2 sonars and shoot. Any weapon you take will do the job, but if you can have something with a good crit chance as a Baza or Soma it's almost instakill. Just for the sake of testing i'll try with a Lato this evening, but I'm damn sure it will work.

    • Kind of old thread but I just beat this boss solo but you NEED a fast warframe and a couple specters with a long range high damage weapon. Once you get there, hang around the pipe you want to throw the bomb in and have your specter hold that position. The raptor wont attack the spector so just focus on dodging the boss while the specter rips through it. throw the bomb in the pipe and wash rinse repeat.

    • Just in case anyone's still interested in tips, hitting them with Mag's Magnetize, then pumping them full of rounds from the Panthera works incredibly well, especially if you have it spec'd for Radiation damage.  Running solo, took care of all three of them in under a minute.  For those who aren't Mastery 7, I suspect Miter would work as well.  I'll give it a go soon.  Since Mag drops from the Sergeant on Phobos and Miter's components drop from Vor & Kril on Ceres, it's even possible for a beginner to have this set up on their first run.

        Loading editor
    • Okay, yes.  The Miter also works, but not nearly as well as the Panthera.  Atomos works nicely, though, when spec'd for Radiation.
