Void Cascade is an endless Mission type introduced in Update 31.5 (2022-04-27). The Void threatens to disrupt the Zariman Ten Zero's systems and the Tenno must cleanse the Exolizers of Void Manifestations to prevent total cascade, while also fending off invading Corpus or Grineer.

Access to this mission requires completion of the Angels of the Zariman quest.

Mechanics[]

Periodically, a Void-possessed Exolizer will spawn, contaminated by multiple Void rifts. The contaminated Exolizer has a barrier with a 20-meter radius that forces Transference on entry, similar to an Orphix Field. The rifts must be closed using the Operator/Drifter's DmgVoidSmall64.png Void damage Amp or Void Sling, which will spawn a Void Manifestation above the Exolizer. Destroying the manifestation will purge the Exolizer, deactivate the Transference-disrupting field, and spawn a Thrax Centurion in its place, who will threaten to repossess the Exolizer if not defeated quickly enough; the Centurion is a formidable foe that possesses Overguard and defeating its physical form will revert it into a spectral entity that must be finished off with Operator/Drifter damage before it regains its physical form.

As the mission progresses, additional Centurions aided by Thrax Legatus will spawn in and attempt to possess any purged Exolizers. Centurions can only possess Exolizers while in their physical form; forcing them into their spectral state will interrupt the possession. Legatus will not attempt to possess Exolizers, but will instead intercept players and defend Centurions.

Players must monitor a Cascade gauge that fills in the presence of Void-possessed Exolizers. Purged Exolizers will linger on the field for a few minutes while they tick down, passively reducing the Cascade gauge. Killing enemies within 20 meters of a purged Exolizer will cause them to be absorbed into the Exolizer, reducing the Cascade gauge. Once a purged Exolizer has expired, it will be counted towards the total number of purged Exolizers. Retiring 4 purged Exolizers counts for one rotation, and will open extraction.

If the Cascade gauge fills completely, all Exolizers will despawn. If extraction is not yet available, the mission ends in failure. Otherwise, the Tenno are immediately directed to extract. All squad members' health will start draining, similar to when Life Support reaches 0% in a Survival mission. Should the Tenno linger too long after the Cascade gauge has filled, the mission will end in failure.

Some of Quinn's Bounties that involve Void Cascade may have a special condition that requires the Tenno to keep the Cascade Gauge below 50%, meaning players have to work faster on purging corrupted Exolizers. If the Gauge hits exactly 50% before completing one rotation, the mission will immediately fail.

Notes[]

  • Tenno Specters will instantly die if they enter a Void Cascade bubble.

Tips[]

  • The key to ensuring that the Cascade Gauge remains low is to ensure that there are more purged Exolizers than possessed ones. Having at least one purged Exolizer more than possessed ones will cause the Gauge to drop, and an equal number will cause the Gauge to remain still.
  • Fast moving Warframes such as GaussIcon272.png Gauss, WukongIcon272.png Wukong, NezhaIcon272.png Nezha, TitaniaIcon272.png Titania, YareliIcon272.png Yareli and ZephyrIcon272.png Zephyr excel in this mission as they can quickly breeze through corridors to get to spawning Exolizers in the other rooms.
    • Alternatively, inherently tough Warframes such as InarosIcon272.png Inaros, NidusIcon272.png Nidus and GaraIcon272.png Gara can move in advance to the other rooms with newly spawned Exolizers and hold on their own against swarms of enemies while waiting for others to mop up the previous room.
  • Possessed Exolizers will deploy in predetermined points across three distinct tiles in a similar manner to how Orphix are deployed in Orphix Missions. This allows players to anticipate where the next Exolizers will deploy and move there ahead of time.
    • Exolizers may deploy once every 30 seconds after the previous one, signified by a distinct sound.
    • If playing in a squad, it may be worth having some players remain in previous rooms with the purged Exolizers to protect them from potential Thrax repossessions.
  • Additional Thrax Centurion and Legatus spawns become more frequent as the mission progresses, with some appearing immediately after an Exolizer is purged at higher levels.
  • Although the spectral forms of the Thrax are immune to Status Effects, any status effects applied to their physical form prior will carry over. Applying DmgViralSmall64.png Viral stacks can aid in eliminating their spectral forms.
    • If a Centurion manages to possess an Exolizer, any damage received beforehand will be maintained.
  • The Operator/Drifter does not need to be inside a possessed Exolizer's disruption field to shoot and seal the rifts with their Amp. Doing so prevents their Warframe's activated and/or toggled abilities from being unceremoniously disabled by accidentally entering the field.
    • After purging an Exolizer of its possessing Thrax, the Operator/Drifer can safely return to their Warframe to engage and finish off the said Thrax as the device's nullifying field is already deactivated.
  • Lega Prism and Klamora Prism are highly effective at closing Void rifts due to their wide range and continuous stream.

Patch History[]

Update 31.6 (2022-06-09)

General Operator Changes & Fixes:
  • Updated the Anti-Warframe field (Exolizers in Void Cascade) to no longer nullify Warframe abilities on forced Transference. As mentioned in the Hotfix 31.5.10 notes.
Void Cascade Mission Changes:
  • In-Mission Tutorial Screen: We have added a new tutorial screen in the Void Cascade mission! To access it, simply open the main menu and select the “i” icon in the bottom right corner. This is the first tutorial setup of its kind, and we will be slowly considering more tutorials of this nature based on the feedback we receive.
  • Moved Mission progress tracker above the Threat meter.
  • Added tracker for successful rounds to Mission UI.
  • Reduced the amount of different Threat states to 4. The Threat states are now:
    • THREAT: MINIMAL
    • THREAT: MENACING
    • THREAT: SEVERE
    • THREAT: CRITICAL CASCADE
  • Increased the transition time between threat states so that you can spend more time in the last one before transitioning.
    • This now triggers a final state that has a 5 minute timer before extraction.
  • Added message for when Thrax are corrupting an Exolizer.
  • Added mid-mission icons to the first set of Void rifts encountered during the Void Cascade mission in the Angels of the Zariman Quest.
  • Tweaked timing of transmissions during Void Cascade missions.
  • Fixed the final State (CRITICAL CASCADE) immediately triggering, now you can exist in the final threat state before it ends.
General Zariman Mission Changes & Fixes:
  • Added individual extraction to endless Zariman missions (Void Cascade, Void Flood, and Void Armageddon).
    • In order to solo extract from endless Zariman missions, simply head to the elevator and hold to extract at the panel. Traditionally, in other endless missions you could solo extract by waiting out the timer at the extraction point, but doing that here will only extract once all team members have joined you in the elevator. We may explore this option for Zariman missions, but for now manual solo extraction is available!
  • Fixed glass material flickering if there is active VFX behind it (notably with the yellow Exolizer bubble in Void Cascade missions).
  • Fixed certain Warframes (notably while using Yareli’s Merulina and Sevagoth’s Exalted Shadow) losing functionality and getting stuck in t-pose after entering the Void Cascade Exolizer anti-Warframe bubbles.
FIXES:
  • Fixed Nidus’ Virulence not always creating a trail for Host if stomping down on forced Transference bubbles from above (such as in Void Cascade).

Hotfix 31.5.9 (2022-05-12)

  • Fixed an unusable context action appearing on the Exolizers in Void Cascade missions.

Hotfix 31.5.8 (2022-05-11)

  • Fixed cleansed Exolizers in Void Cascade missions expiring immediately after Host migration.

Hotfix 31.5.6 (2022-05-04)

  • Fixed the ‘Minimize Void Contamination’ Bounty for Cascade (Use 4 Exolizers while keeping the corruption bar from going above 50%) failing instantly upon mission start on older PCs.
  • Fixed anti-Warframe bubble not working on Clients in Void Cascade missions.

Hotfix 31.5.5 (2022-05-03)

  • Void Cascade Fixes:
    • Fixed Exolizer progression marker lingering with full bar after it disappears in Void Cascade missions.

Hotfix 31.5.4 (2022-05-02)

  • Fixed more script errors related to Thrax enemies in Void Cascade missions.
  • Fixed script error in the Void Cascade missions.

Hotfix 31.5.3 (2022-04-29)

  • Fixed script error related to Thrax enemy spawns in Void Cascade missions.

Hotfix 31.5.2 (2022-04-28)

  • Fixed sound being permanently ducked when entering the elevator during Void Cascade mission fail.

Hotfix 31.5.1 (2022-04-27)

  • Fixed several issues for remaining player after Host migration in Void Cascade after 1/3 completed Exolizers:
    • Lack of mission UI.
    • Unable to start a new Exolizer.
    • Not forcing transference to Operator when crossing into anti-warframe bubbles.
    • Enemies not spawning/moving.

Update 31.5 (2022-04-27)

  • Introduced.
