:community:

==================

How have the snowy mountain tops and damp luminous caves of the Orb Vallis been treating you so far? Been seeking out a lot of poop for Biz? Sounds about right! Well soon there will be even more poop variants, along with a whole new challenge, Warframe, and much more. 

Fortuna Part 2: The Profit Taker - Update 24.2.9 has been sent to cert! 

This update will include everything from Hotfix 24.1.1 + 24.1.1.1 to Hotfix 24.2.9.1 with some cherry picked integrations beyond. The update will roughly be 1.6 GB in size! Once the build has passed cert we will update this thread and all of the usual Warframe channels with the official launch date. 

Let’s take a look at what The Profit-Taker: Update 24.2.9 (and the 31 pages of update notes!) will bring:

ORB HEISTS
Here’s the score, Tenno: Nef has the entire Vallis on lockdown. Supply lines are cut off, and we can't get anyone in or out of Fortuna. So we’re planning something big. Something dangerous.

We’re going to fight a massive, mechanical spider. An Orb Mother, to be precise.

THE PLAN: TAKE DOWN THE ORB MOTHER
Before we can take on the Profit-Taker, we need to discover a weakness in its defenses. In Update 24.2.9, you’ll have to work with Solaris United to get the intel and the tools you need to get the job done.

NEW WARFRAME: Baruuk - The Reluctant Warrior
Beware the fury of the truly patient. Pushed beyond restraint, a reluctant master unleashes the storm within.

PASSIVE:
RESTRAINT

Each projectile dodged, each enemy lulled or disarmed, erodes Baruuk’s restraint and fuels the storm within. As Baruuk’s restraint is diminished he becomes more resistant to damage.

ELUDE
Dodge all incoming projectiles, but only while not attacking. Edge closer to The Brink with each projectile dodge. Use again to deactivate this ability.

Included changes to Elude from from Hotfix 24.2.7 and 24.2.8:

  • Baruuk’s end of Elude animation no longer prevents movement.
  • Baruuk’s Elude conal indicator FX will only be seen by the local player (person casting the ability).

LULL
A calming wave slows enemies until they fall into a slumber. Enemies woken by damage will be confused and disoriented. Short-term amnesia means all waking enemies forget anything that happened before the lull.

Included change to Lull from from Hotfix 24.2.3:

  • Animals are less stressed the closer you are to them when casting Baruuk’s Lull ability.

DESOLATE HANDS
Summon a bevy of orbiting daggers to seek out enemy guns, destroying them with a small explosion. Combine with ELUDE to double the range.

SERENE STORM
With his Restraint eroded, Baruuk commands the Desert Wind to deliver powerful radial strikes with his fists and feet. Each moment commanding the storm restores his Restraint.

Exalted Fist Weapon for Arsenal:
DESERT WIND

Baruuk channels the desert wind to turn his fists and feet into an exalted weapon.


NEW TENNO REINFORCEMENTS!

0698421264424f575b35dd4eb92af141.png

NEW BARUUK COLLECTION

  • Baruuk Meroe Helmet: A uniquely-styled alternate Helmet for Baruuk.
  • Akrabu Syandana: This Syandana of corded-knots wrapped in linen is used by Baruuk for meditation and contemplation.
  • Cobra & Crane: A shield for restraint. A sword for retribution. The crane and the cobra, Baruuk’s signature melee weapons.
  • Sloughi Kubrow Armor: Don your Kubrow with Baruuk's distinctive armor.
  • Baruuk Mandala: Bestow the serenity of Baruuk’s meditative energy mandala upon your orbiter.

NEW WEAPONS

  • EXERGIS: Feel the kick of this Corpus shotgun as it shatters a high-yield crystal into anyone and anything standing in your way.
  • PLINX: Cultivate a meaningful relationship with this deceptively simple battery-powered pistol. The Plinx rewards attention and investment from the wise.
  • GALVACORD: Shock and maim with this heavyweight retractable whip.

NEW HELMETS AND MORE

  • NIDUS MYXINI HELMET: Evolutions’ nightmare. Open wide with this alternate helm for Nidus.
  • TITANIA MAB HELMET: Muse. Mother. Queen. Rally your court with this alternate helm for Titania.
  • FLOX SYANDANA: A Corpus-inspired Syandana that responds to the wearer's well-being, unfolding in response to damage. As you endure the Flox unfolds.
  • MOTHERWRENCH HAMMER SKIN: Leave the Corpus in no doubt as to where your allegiance lies with this iconic Solaris utility item. Lift together, smack 'em down.

‘ATMOSPHERE’ ARCH-GUN WEAPONS
Update 24.2.9 is bringing some serious floor firepower! You will be able to use your Arch-Guns on the ground - or as we like to call it ‘Atmosphere’ - with the use of a ‘Gravimag’. This device can be installed on any Arch-Gun (with an Orokin Catalyst installed) via the Upgrade Arsenal - similar to installing a Catalyst.

Comparable to the Archwing and K-Drive Launchers, a respective Gear item known as the Archgun Deployer will be required to activate your Atmosphere Arch-Gun. 

Atmosphere Arch-Gun Specificities:

  • Atmosphere Arch-Gun can be summoned in normal missions with the Archgun Deployer, but once Ammo has been depleted there is a cool-down until you can summon again. 
  • Atmosphere Arch-Guns consume Ammo as opposed to unlimited Ammo/Battery in Archwing. Specifically new Heavy Ammo Drops, which can be found from Corpus enemies in Orb Heist missions. 
  • Included change from Hotfix 24.2.6: Shared Affinity gain now applies to Atmosphere Arch-Guns but only while equipped in the main hand.

The following stat changes will be for Atmosphere Arch-Gun mode, while Mastery Rank changes will be global.

Nyx & Titania Changes

For a complete deep dive into intent - check out the original Dev Workshop!

Nyx Changes:

General change: Nyx's abilities have received an audio refresh - new sounds have been added to her powers!

New Passive: Nyx's Passive now causes enemies to miss her more often.

  • Nyx's last Passive randomly disarmed enemies when hit by powers. Since her revisited kit depends on enemies effectively hitting each other, we changed the passive to simply make her harder to hit.
    • This new passive is deactivated when Nyx is using Absorb, meaning no shot will be wasted!

Mind Control:

  • Mind Control has a 4 second wind up at the start where incoming damage will cause the target's damage output to increase. The stronger your weaponry, the deadlier the output of your victim!
    • Reminder: All damage inflicted to the target will apply once Nyx deactivates Mind Control, or when the Duration runs out.
  • Better 'follow Nyx and attack enemies' AI pass.
  • Mind Control can now be cast while moving, and no longer halts Nyx in her tracks!
  • The cast time for Mind Control has been decreased, so you can better use the 4-second window to ‘power up’ your new minion!

Psychic Bolts:

  • No longer deals any damage but will now temporarily disable Armor & Shield, slow down Infested units, and disable Ancients' Auras.
  • Psychic Bolts can be cast once on up to 6 targets. Kill these targets before you can cast again, OR hold the ability to reset targets and cast again!
    • Included change from Hotfix 24.2.9: Added sounds to Psychic Bolts deactivate hold and end - you can despell this ability by holding the ability by default!

Absorb: What Nyx can do with her 'Absorb' now allows for more tactical team play / solo play!

  • Absorb damage type is now based on the damage types it absorbs.
  • A thematic element of 'manipulating others damage' has been weaved through Nyx's Absorb. Absorb now has 'lingering Absorption' - Nyx's Absorb now converts a % of the Absorbed Damage into a self Damage buff when the ability ends for a limited time, dispelled on recast. This means as your teammate or enemies power your Absorb, you can tactically break it for damage/range - and/ or a self-damage buff for Nyx imbued by those around you! This synergizes with Mind Control, allowing more powerful victims, as well as allowing more lethality on Nyx's weakened and distracted enemies.
  • Nyx Absorb explosion radius increases based on the Damage Absorbed (capped Nyx to 75m max).
  • Added +400% Damage cap to Nyx Absorb Damage buff.

Titania Changes:

General Change: Baseline Energy Capacity increased to hit 225 at Max Rank.

Tribute:

  • The Energy cost for Tribute has been decreased from 50 to 25.
  • Simply getting 1 type of Tribute will be enough to have its maximum power. You can continue to acquire Tributes to refresh the Duration, but you no longer need to build them up.
  • As for the 4 Tribute types:
    • Dust - keep as-is:it reduces enemy accuracy by 50%!
    • Thorns - increase to 50% of damage reflected back to the attacker and increased its range from 10m to 30m!
    • Entangle - keep as-is: one Entangle Tribute slows an enemy by 25% but we increased its range from 10m to 30m! 
    • Fullmoon - the 75% damage buff now applies to ALL (Sentinels, Moas, Companions) + Razorwing Butterflies

Lantern:

  • Lantern can be cast up to 4 times at once (new targets replace old). Targets will gradually float back to their starting positions. You will be able to 'explode' all targets by holding the Lantern cast.

Razorwing:

  • Titania’s Razorflies will gain Health when Titania kills enemies while in Razorwing!
  • Razorwing has a 'Vacuum' built in!
  • Optimized Razorwing's ability sound.

Harrow Changes:

  • As per feedback, Harrow’s Systems Blueprint will be added as a Rare drop in Rotation B for Defection missions. This means you will have 2 chances in the Endless loop to obtain Harrow, not just one at Rotation C. To maintain balance, a Corrupted Mod will be moved to Rotation A.
  • Increased Harrow’s Energy gain from his Thurible ability (max ranked now gains 2x as much).
  • Increased Duration of Harrow’s Penance by around 20%.

Venus Osprey Changes:

  • Venus Shield Ospreys that spawn Nullifier bubbles will only spawn if the Orb Vallis Alert level is 3+ and if the enemy level is 20+.
  • Level 2+ Alert level will spawn Shield Ospreys that don’t spawn Nullifier bubbles.
  • A max of 2 Nullifier bubbles can be created per Drone.
  • Total active Nullifier bubbles (from all Drones) in the area will not exceed 4 - 10 bubbles (scaling with player count).

Controller Responsiveness Changes

We increased controller responsiveness in a number of ways:

One major issue we addressed were cases where almost 50% controller input was required before a hip-fire camera manipulation could be executed. We’ve decreased coded dead zones to allow for more refined, precise aiming and removed the inherited velocity when shifting directions. Players should now notice an immediate falloff in camera movement once input is no longer applied to the control sticks.

Additionally, we have added a number of mathematical improvements regarding the ramp and acceleration curves used to interpolate control stick input. This should make the camera manipulations feel much smoother and allow for a closer approximation of circular movement, compared to the very ‘square’ like motions we had previously.

We’ve also increased the amount of vertical movement seen when manipulating the control stick to reduce the amount of asymmetry between it and horizontal movement. There is still a bias towards the horizontal plane, but moving the camera up/down should not feel so drastically different when now compared to left/right movement.

Conservation Additions & Changes:

  • Animal Pheromone Synthesizer items have been added to The Business’ Offerings! When deployed before using an Echo-Lure, these increase the chance of attracting a Rare variant of the respective animal.
    • Included change from Hotfix 24.2.3: Reduced the Pheromone Synthesizer Standing Cost from 1000 Standing to 100 - 500 Standing depending on the animal.
  • When completing a successful animal Conservation using a Warframe ability, it will yield a ‘Good Capture’, as opposed to sometimes yielding a ‘Perfect Capture’. A successful animal Conservation using the tried-and-true Tranq/Echo-Lure technique was always intended to yield a higher gratitude.
    • Ivara’s Sleep Arrow will however grant a ‘Perfect Capture’ if the shot is a direct hit. The farther off your shot the more distressed the animal gets.
  • Changed the the Tranq Rifle to be ‘Silent’! This should ensure you are not startling animals if you miss - it's only on hit they'll react.
  • Increased range of Tranq Rifle pulsing sound from 100m to 180m.
  • Increased the fire rate of the Tranq Rifle so that it enters the reload state faster.
  • The Conservation gear when tracking animals will function similar to the Fishing gear, where tapping the bound key will auto-equip the respective item, instead of having to hold and re-select the item.
  • Changed the Conservation gear to show the 'Infinity' symbol, indicating the fact that it is not consumed on use.
  • Echo-Lures will no longer need to be equipped in your Gear Spiral, they are auto-equipped in the Conservation gear when a Tranq is equipped.

Dojo UI Changes:

  • The initial Trading Post screen and Research screen in the Dojo have been reworked to not only be more functional and aesthetically pleasing, but also to match your chosen UI Theme!
  • Research in progress will display contribution progress in the right panel and incomplete material contributions will appear faded.
  • Hovering over non-Credit Research requirement materials will show the item info as well as the amount owned.

K-Drive Changes:

  • K-Drive Races will require and reward Standing! Boon has adapted the high risk high reward lifestyle - glinty!!
    • The amount of Standing required is based on the number of gates * 5 (10 gates * 5 = 50 Standing requirement) regardless if you win or lose the race.
    • The amount of Standing rewarded is based on the number of gates * 100 (10 gates * 100 = 1000 Standing) if you successful complete the race.
  • High value tricks will reward you more Standing.
  • A successful K-Drive grind grab will be called a ‘Knuckle Duster’.

General Changes:

  • Blueprints for Warframes obtained from quests will no longer be able to be sold for Credits.
  • The Emote Gear wheel will show Emotes as available to use when you're playing an Emote instead of fading out as though unusable, even though you can still select them to play another/cancel current emote. 
  • Any input will cancel Emotes, instead of having to re-enter the Emote Gear wheel and re-select the Emote.
  • Arch-Gun Mod changes:

    • Dual Rounds: 30% to 60% Multishot

  • Reduced the Standing cost of Cetus Wisps from 10k to 5k.
  • Javlok Capacitors will be able to be sold to 2,500 Credits (as to not pile up in your Inventory).
  • Improvements towards Vallis Mining deposit spawn locations that resulted in an inability to successfully Mine them.
  • Restored the option to purchase 1 Forma or a pack of 3 Formas when you don't have any and you want to Polarize something.
  • Replaced the Braton Prime Blueprint with the Braton Prime Receiver in the Lith K2 Relic due to an unintentional vaulting of the Receiver!
  • Fast Travel in Fortuna will be enabled for Little Duck when appropriate.
  • Venus Dropships will be affected by Corrosive Projection, Magnetic, Heat, and Electricity Status Effects.
  • Dropships will loop through and check for the landing zone closest to the chosen encounter location. This should reduce situations where Dropships could pick a very far away point from the encounter area.
  • Reduced the required amount of enemy deaths for the Submersible Archwing Exterminate Sortie mission.
  • Orb Vallis Excavation missions will spawn Excavators that will equally match player count, with the exception of a full squad of 4 players where only 3 Excavators will spawn.
  • Improved Bounty boards to gracefully refresh and have next set of Bounties all lined up and ready to go without downtime.
  • Replaced old Corpus lockers of various types with shiny new and improved Corpus lockers on numerous tilesets.
  • Corpus Lockers/Caches that can be opened will display a holographic symbol to indicate such. Corpus Lockers/Caches without the holographic symbol cannot be opened.

  • Read Twitch Drop Inbox messages will be auto-removed after 30 days.
  • Chat will autocomplete when attempting to link a Zaw, MOA Companion, K-Drive, and Kitgun.
  • A search box will be added to the Arsenal Loadout selection screen.
  • Renamed the Archwing Mod category to ‘Vehicles’. Both Archwing and K-Drive Mods will be able to be found here.
  • The Flashlight brightness will be ducked when using a Scanner.
  • Reduced the flashlight FX further when Mining to avoid excessive bloom and inability to see deposits.
  • Numerous performance optimizations across the entire game! Including K-Drive performance improvements and Texture Streaming (it now reacts more quickly with a lower performance cost). We’ve touched upon shaders, particle system, weather, and more!
  • ...and more! 

 

And over 7 pages of fixes! 

MISSED INCLUSION:

Is the Moa companions AI fixed from this update so they don't shoot at the ground or wall and where they can follow your character mapping without standing in place and dying from being attacked?

Amazing work console team. It's been a hot minute for updates to console, but hopefully this will tide me over for a good bit. Sad to hear that Round 14 is going to be delayed even further though, was very much looking forward to the Gara skin personally. Hopefully the next update doesn't take as long. Good luck guys.

There's a lot of content still missing which is a bit disappointing. Of course I'm bummed about Tennogen, but even the Moa legs weren't added. We waited two months, why is there still basic content not being added?

Hey at least the last phase of profit taker gives 400k credit just like the trials gave and its not a daily reward its per run of phase 4 # credit farm material 

Sitting upwards of 40 mil right now, that means nothing to me. I'm just curious as to why after 2 months we don't even get the full amount of basic content.

So we were kept in the dark for almost 2 whole months and don't even get Round 14 from back in September AND most of the new things added in hotfixes for Fortuna 2.... This is thee most inflated update to date. No offense but to be honest I would have preferred waiting longer to get EVERYTHING. But to everyone else enjoy the update I guess.

How have the snowy mountain tops and damp luminous caves of the Orb Vallis been treating you so far? Been seeking out a lot of poop for Biz? Sounds about right! Well soon there will be even more poop variants, along with a whole new challenge, Warframe, and much more. 

Fortuna Part 2: The Profit Taker - Update 24.2.9 has been sent to cert! 

This update will include everything from Hotfix 24.1.1 + 24.1.1.1 to Hotfix 24.2.9.1 with some cherry picked integrations beyond. The update will roughly be 1.6 GB in size! Once the build has passed cert we will update this thread and all of the usual Warframe channels with the official launch date. 

Let’s take a look at what The Profit-Taker: Update 24.2.9 (and the 31 pages of update notes!) will bring:

ORB HEISTS
Here’s the score, Tenno: Nef has the entire Vallis on lockdown. Supply lines are cut off, and we can't get anyone in or out of Fortuna. So we’re planning something big. Something dangerous.

We’re going to fight a massive, mechanical spider. An Orb Mother, to be precise.

THE PLAN: TAKE DOWN THE ORB MOTHER
Before we can take on the Profit-Taker, we need to discover a weakness in its defenses. In Update 24.2.9, you’ll have to work with Solaris United to get the intel and the tools you need to get the job done.

1f5386fa2d51f21571c6d4ab947a60a9.png

NEW WARFRAME: Baruuk - The Reluctant Warrior
Beware the fury of the truly patient. Pushed beyond restraint, a reluctant master unleashes the storm within.

PASSIVE:
RESTRAINT

Each projectile dodged, each enemy lulled or disarmed, erodes Baruuk’s restraint and fuels the storm within. As Baruuk’s restraint is diminished he becomes more resistant to damage.

ELUDE
Dodge all incoming projectiles, but only while not attacking. Edge closer to The Brink with each projectile dodge. Use again to deactivate this ability.

Included changes to Elude from from Hotfix 24.2.7 and 24.2.8:

  • Baruuk’s end of Elude animation no longer prevents movement.
  • Baruuk’s Elude conal indicator FX will only be seen by the local player (person casting the ability).

LULL
A calming wave slows enemies until they fall into a slumber. Enemies woken by damage will be confused and disoriented. Short-term amnesia means all waking enemies forget anything that happened before the lull.

Included change to Lull from from Hotfix 24.2.3:

  • Animals are less stressed the closer you are to them when casting Baruuk’s Lull ability.

DESOLATE HANDS
Summon a bevy of orbiting daggers to seek out enemy guns, destroying them with a small explosion. Combine with ELUDE to double the range.

SERENE STORM
With his Restraint eroded, Baruuk commands the Desert Wind to deliver powerful radial strikes with his fists and feet. Each moment commanding the storm restores his Restraint.

Exalted Fist Weapon for Arsenal:
DESERT WIND

Baruuk channels the desert wind to turn his fists and feet into an exalted weapon.


NEW TENNO REINFORCEMENTS!

0698421264424f575b35dd4eb92af141.png

  • Sloughi Kubrow Armor: Don your Kubrow with Baruuk's distinctive armor.
  • Baruuk Mandala: Bestow the serenity of Baruuk’s meditative energy mandala upon your orbiter.

NEW WEAPONS

  • EXERGIS: Feel the kick of this Corpus shotgun as it shatters a high-yield crystal into anyone and anything standing in your way.
  • PLINX: Cultivate a meaningful relationship with this deceptively simple battery-powered pistol. The Plinx rewards attention and investment from the wise.
  • GALVACORD: Shock and maim with this heavyweight retractable whip.

NEW HELMETS AND MORE

  • NIDUS MYXINI HELMET: Evolutions’ nightmare. Open wide with this alternate helm for Nidus.
  • TITANIA MAB HELMET: Muse. Mother. Queen. Rally your court with this alternate helm for Titania.

‘ATMOSPHERE’ ARCH-GUN WEAPONS
Update 24.2.9 is bringing some serious floor firepower! You will be able to use your Arch-Guns on the ground - or as we like to call it ‘Atmosphere’ - with the use of a ‘Gravimag’. This device can be installed on any Arch-Gun (with an Orokin Catalyst installed) via the Upgrade Arsenal - similar to installing a Catalyst.

Comparable to the Archwing and K-Drive Launchers, a respective Gear item known as the Archgun Deployer will be required to activate your Atmosphere Arch-Gun. 

Atmosphere Arch-Gun Specificities:

  • Atmosphere Arch-Gun can be summoned in normal missions with the Archgun Deployer, but once Ammo has been depleted there is a cool-down until you can summon again. 
  • Atmosphere Arch-Guns consume Ammo as opposed to unlimited Ammo/Battery in Archwing. Specifically new Heavy Ammo Drops, which can be found from Corpus enemies in Orb Heist missions. 
  • Included change from Hotfix 24.2.6: Shared Affinity gain now applies to Atmosphere Arch-Guns but only while equipped in the main hand.

The following stat changes will be for Atmosphere Arch-Gun mode, while Mastery Rank changes will be global.

Nyx & Titania Changes

For a complete deep dive into intent - check out the original Dev Workshop!

Nyx Changes:

General change: Nyx's abilities have received an audio refresh - new sounds have been added to her powers!

New Passive: Nyx's Passive now causes enemies to miss her more often.

  • Nyx's last Passive randomly disarmed enemies when hit by powers. Since her revisited kit depends on enemies effectively hitting each other, we changed the passive to simply make her harder to hit.
    • This new passive is deactivated when Nyx is using Absorb, meaning no shot will be wasted!

Mind Control:

  • Mind Control has a 4 second wind up at the start where incoming damage will cause the target's damage output to increase. The stronger your weaponry, the deadlier the output of your victim!
    • Reminder: All damage inflicted to the target will apply once Nyx deactivates Mind Control, or when the Duration runs out.
  • Better 'follow Nyx and attack enemies' AI pass.
  • Mind Control can now be cast while moving, and no longer halts Nyx in her tracks!
  • The cast time for Mind Control has been decreased, so you can better use the 4-second window to ‘power up’ your new minion!

Psychic Bolts:

  • No longer deals any damage but will now temporarily disable Armor & Shield, slow down Infested units, and disable Ancients' Auras.
  • Psychic Bolts can be cast once on up to 6 targets. Kill these targets before you can cast again, OR hold the ability to reset targets and cast again!
    • Included change from Hotfix 24.2.9: Added sounds to Psychic Bolts deactivate hold and end - you can despell this ability by holding the ability by default!

Absorb: What Nyx can do with her 'Absorb' now allows for more tactical team play / solo play!

  • Absorb damage type is now based on the damage types it absorbs.
  • A thematic element of 'manipulating others damage' has been weaved through Nyx's Absorb. Absorb now has 'lingering Absorption' - Nyx's Absorb now converts a % of the Absorbed Damage into a self Damage buff when the ability ends for a limited time, dispelled on recast. This means as your teammate or enemies power your Absorb, you can tactically break it for damage/range - and/ or a self-damage buff for Nyx imbued by those around you! This synergizes with Mind Control, allowing more powerful victims, as well as allowing more lethality on Nyx's weakened and distracted enemies.
  • Nyx Absorb explosion radius increases based on the Damage Absorbed (capped Nyx to 75m max).
  • Added +400% Damage cap to Nyx Absorb Damage buff.

Titania Changes:

General Change: Baseline Energy Capacity increased to hit 225 at Max Rank.

Tribute:

  • The Energy cost for Tribute has been decreased from 50 to 25.
  • Simply getting 1 type of Tribute will be enough to have its maximum power. You can continue to acquire Tributes to refresh the Duration, but you no longer need to build them up.
  • As for the 4 Tribute types:
    • Dust - keep as-is:it reduces enemy accuracy by 50%!
    • Thorns - increase to 50% of damage reflected back to the attacker and increased its range from 10m to 30m!
    • Entangle - keep as-is: one Entangle Tribute slows an enemy by 25% but we increased its range from 10m to 30m! 
    • Fullmoon - the 75% damage buff now applies to ALL (Sentinels, Moas, Companions) + Razorwing Butterflies

Lantern:

  • Lantern can be cast up to 4 times at once (new targets replace old). Targets will gradually float back to their starting positions. You will be able to 'explode' all targets by holding the Lantern cast.

Razorwing:

  • Titania’s Razorflies will gain Health when Titania kills enemies while in Razorwing!
  • Razorwing has a 'Vacuum' built in!
  • Optimized Razorwing's ability sound.

Harrow Changes:

  • As per feedback, Harrow’s Systems Blueprint will be added as a Rare drop in Rotation B for Defection missions. This means you will have 2 chances in the Endless loop to obtain Harrow, not just one at Rotation C. To maintain balance, a Corrupted Mod will be moved to Rotation A.
  • Increased Harrow’s Energy gain from his Thurible ability (max ranked now gains 2x as much).
  • Increased Duration of Harrow’s Penance by around 20%.

Venus Osprey Changes:

  • Venus Shield Ospreys that spawn Nullifier bubbles will only spawn if the Orb Vallis Alert level is 3+ and if the enemy level is 20+.
  • Level 2+ Alert level will spawn Shield Ospreys that don’t spawn Nullifier bubbles.
  • A max of 2 Nullifier bubbles can be created per Drone.
  • Total active Nullifier bubbles (from all Drones) in the area will not exceed 4 - 10 bubbles (scaling with player count).

  • Killstream Loader status chance increased from 11 to 13% when used with Catchmoon Chamber.
  • Tombfinger Chamber area-of-effect damage origin now matches point of impact instead of behind it.

 

Controller Responsiveness Changes

We increased controller responsiveness in a number of ways:

One major issue we addressed were cases where almost 50% controller input was required before a hip-fire camera manipulation could be executed. We’ve decreased coded dead zones to allow for more refined, precise aiming and removed the inherited velocity when shifting directions. Players should now notice an immediate falloff in camera movement once input is no longer applied to the control sticks.

Additionally, we have added a number of mathematical improvements regarding the ramp and acceleration curves used to interpolate control stick input. This should make the camera manipulations feel much smoother and allow for a closer approximation of circular movement, compared to the very ‘square’ like motions we had previously.

We’ve also increased the amount of vertical movement seen when manipulating the control stick to reduce the amount of asymmetry between it and horizontal movement. There is still a bias towards the horizontal plane, but moving the camera up/down should not feel so drastically different when now compared to left/right movement.

Conservation Additions & Changes:

  • Animal Pheromone Synthesizer items have been added to The Business’ Offerings! When deployed before using an Echo-Lure, these increase the chance of attracting a Rare variant of the respective animal.
    • Included change from Hotfix 24.2.3: Reduced the Pheromone Synthesizer Standing Cost from 1000 Standing to 100 - 500 Standing depending on the animal.
  • When completing a successful animal Conservation using a Warframe ability, it will yield a ‘Good Capture’, as opposed to sometimes yielding a ‘Perfect Capture’. A successful animal Conservation using the tried-and-true Tranq/Echo-Lure technique was always intended to yield a higher gratitude.
    • Ivara’s Sleep Arrow will however grant a ‘Perfect Capture’ if the shot is a direct hit. The farther off your shot the more distressed the animal gets.
  • Changed the the Tranq Rifle to be ‘Silent’! This should ensure you are not startling animals if you miss - it's only on hit they'll react.
  • Increased range of Tranq Rifle pulsing sound from 100m to 180m.
  • Increased the fire rate of the Tranq Rifle so that it enters the reload state faster.
  • The Conservation gear when tracking animals will function similar to the Fishing gear, where tapping the bound key will auto-equip the respective item, instead of having to hold and re-select the item.
  • Changed the Conservation gear to show the 'Infinity' symbol, indicating the fact that it is not consumed on use.
  • Echo-Lures will no longer need to be equipped in your Gear Spiral, they are auto-equipped in the Conservation gear when a Tranq is equipped.

Dojo UI Changes:

  • The initial Trading Post screen and Research screen in the Dojo have been reworked to not only be more functional and aesthetically pleasing, but also to match your chosen UI Theme!
  • Research in progress will display contribution progress in the right panel and incomplete material contributions will appear faded.
  • Hovering over non-Credit Research requirement materials will show the item info as well as the amount owned.

K-Drive Changes:

  • K-Drive Races will require and reward Standing! Boon has adapted the high risk high reward lifestyle - glinty!!
    • The amount of Standing required is based on the number of gates * 5 (10 gates * 5 = 50 Standing requirement) regardless if you win or lose the race.
    • The amount of Standing rewarded is based on the number of gates * 100 (10 gates * 100 = 1000 Standing) if you successful complete the race.
  • High value tricks will reward you more Standing.
  • A successful K-Drive grind grab will be called a ‘Knuckle Duster’.

General Changes:

  • The Bloodshed Sigil will remain visible in Relays/Liset and Cetus/Fortuna and in the Arsenals (applies to Operator as well) provided you're returning from a mission where you took damage (more damage = more blood). We have also decreased the time it takes to appear by 20%!
  • Blueprints for Warframes obtained from quests will no longer be able to be sold for Credits.
  • The Emote Gear wheel will show Emotes as available to use when you're playing an Emote instead of fading out as though unusable, even though you can still select them to play another/cancel current emote.

  • Arch-Gun Mod changes:
    • Automatic Trigger: 45% to 60% Fire Rate
    • Dual Rounds: 30% to 60% Multishot

  • Fast Travel in Fortuna will be enabled for Little Duck when appropriate.
  • Venus Dropships will be affected by Corrosive Projection, Magnetic, Heat, and Electricity Status Effects.
  • Dropships will loop through and check for the landing zone closest to the chosen encounter location. This should reduce situations where Dropships could pick a very far away point from the encounter area.
  • Reduced the required amount of enemy deaths for the Submersible Archwing Exterminate Sortie mission.
  • Orb Vallis Excavation missions will spawn Excavators that will equally match player count, with the exception of a full squad of 4 players where only 3 Excavators will spawn.
  • Improved Bounty boards to gracefully refresh and have next set of Bounties all lined up and ready to go without downtime.
  • Replaced old Corpus lockers of various types with shiny new and improved Corpus lockers on numerous tilesets.
  • Corpus Lockers/Caches that can be opened will display a holographic symbol to indicate such. Corpus Lockers/Caches without the holographic symbol cannot be opened.

Are the Tennogen skins listed here coming in this update or the next one? 

Here it says that these items will be coming in a future update, not this one, whereas on the devstream they say that these items ARE coming this update.

Please can we have some clarification.

Thanks

Interesting I see 12 slots on all warframe when I look at them on the warframe app

 

And it only took I think 1 day short of 50 days to get this into cert I just hope it passes and drops before my birthday Saturday February 2nd the day I never want to have anything to do with 

Just please please please fix mesa prime so you can toggle her prime on the mesa deluxe skin because I tried to turn it on but the toggle wasn't there so please dont remove the prime toggle for us for mesa prime it's just not right every other prime has it but mesa's gets removed for us in this update, instead of removing you could have fixed it instead

There's a lot of content still missing which is a bit disappointing. Of course I'm bummed about Tennogen, but even the Moa legs weren't added. We waited two months, why is there still basic content not being added?

Hey at least the last phase of profit taker gives 400k credit just like the trials gave and its not a daily reward its per run of phase 4 # credit farm material 

 

All these new things and 2 of which stand out confirming that I'm getting rid of Nyx prime and titania because their reworks are pretty passive at best sorry but I'm never using anything except my patriot prime mesa prime with a white and gold battacor and white and gold moa I call moa prime but my mesa is red white and blue with gold accents for flare 

 

I finally got rid of my boredom playing warframe but in the process I forgot all my controls after getting back on yesterday after quitting fallout 76 so I'm ready for another long 450 12 hour days and preparing for my dreaded birthday next Saturday February 2nd I honestly can't get anything more exciting profit taker is coming before my birthday but my 1 worry is that with how its set up if you can actually solo it in time 

 

I hope the added the magnum force buff to this but no that just dropped yesterday on PC after this went into cert

Yes, I would like an answer as well. I was really hyped for this update because of the tennogen (even though we were only getting half of it) but now it seems we aren't getting any and have to wait for a future update... I'm actually annoyed by this.

"Once the build has passed cert we will update this thread and all of the usual Warframe channels with the official launch date."  So when is the launch date? 

Sorry for being impatient but, like many other xbox 1 users, who waited for this over 2 months,  I am very excited with this update and can't wait for it 🙂

JANUARY 28 STATUS UPDATE:

Profit-Taker Update 24.2.9 has passed Cert and will be launching TOMORROW, January 29th at ~ 2pm ET!!

:community:

==================

67f0933d7fb43c28a374341459da42e8.jpg

How have the snowy mountain tops and damp luminous caves of the Orb Vallis been treating you so far? Been seeking out a lot of poop for Biz? Sounds about right! Well soon there will be even more poop variants, along with a whole new challenge, Warframe, and much more. 

Fortuna Part 2: The Profit Taker - Update 24.2.9 has been sent to cert! 

This update will include everything from Hotfix 24.1.1 + 24.1.1.1 to Hotfix 24.2.9.1 with some cherry picked integrations beyond. The update will roughly be 1.6 GB in size! Once the build has passed cert we will update this thread and all of the usual Warframe channels with the official launch date. 

Let’s take a look at what The Profit-Taker: Update 24.2.9 (and the 31 pages of update notes!) will bring:

ORB HEISTS
Here’s the score, Tenno: Nef has the entire Vallis on lockdown. Supply lines are cut off, and we can't get anyone in or out of Fortuna. So we’re planning something big. Something dangerous.

We’re going to fight a massive, mechanical spider. An Orb Mother, to be precise.

THE PLAN: TAKE DOWN THE ORB MOTHER
Before we can take on the Profit-Taker, we need to discover a weakness in its defenses. In Update 24.2.9, you’ll have to work with Solaris United to get the intel and the tools you need to get the job done.

1f5386fa2d51f21571c6d4ab947a60a9.png

Plan Ahead! ‘Old Mate’ Rank with Solaris United Standing is required to run the Profit-Taker Bounties. Now is a good a time as ever to rank up to qualify once the update goes live! 

The following changes from Hotfix 24.2.2 - 22.2.7 have been integrated into this build for Orb Heists! Expand the spoilers below for list:

NEW WARFRAME: Baruuk - The Reluctant Warrior
Beware the fury of the truly patient. Pushed beyond restraint, a reluctant master unleashes the storm within.

PASSIVE:
RESTRAINT

Each projectile dodged, each enemy lulled or disarmed, erodes Baruuk’s restraint and fuels the storm within. As Baruuk’s restraint is diminished he becomes more resistant to damage.

ELUDE
Dodge all incoming projectiles, but only while not attacking. Edge closer to The Brink with each projectile dodge. Use again to deactivate this ability.

Included changes to Elude from from Hotfix 24.2.7 and 24.2.8:

  • Baruuk’s end of Elude animation no longer prevents movement.
  • Baruuk’s Elude conal indicator FX will only be seen by the local player (person casting the ability).

LULL
A calming wave slows enemies until they fall into a slumber. Enemies woken by damage will be confused and disoriented. Short-term amnesia means all waking enemies forget anything that happened before the lull.

Included change to Lull from from Hotfix 24.2.3:

  • Animals are less stressed the closer you are to them when casting Baruuk’s Lull ability.

DESOLATE HANDS
Summon a bevy of orbiting daggers to seek out enemy guns, destroying them with a small explosion. Combine with ELUDE to double the range.

SERENE STORM
With his Restraint eroded, Baruuk commands the Desert Wind to deliver powerful radial strikes with his fists and feet. Each moment commanding the storm restores his Restraint.

Exalted Fist Weapon for Arsenal:
DESERT WIND

Baruuk channels the desert wind to turn his fists and feet into an exalted weapon.

  • Sloughi Kubrow Armor: Don your Kubrow with Baruuk's distinctive armor.
  • Baruuk Mandala: Bestow the serenity of Baruuk’s meditative energy mandala upon your orbiter.

NEW WEAPONS

  • EXERGIS: Feel the kick of this Corpus shotgun as it shatters a high-yield crystal into anyone and anything standing in your way.
  • PLINX: Cultivate a meaningful relationship with this deceptively simple battery-powered pistol. The Plinx rewards attention and investment from the wise.
  • GALVACORD: Shock and maim with this heavyweight retractable whip.

NEW HELMETS AND MORE

  • NIDUS MYXINI HELMET: Evolutions’ nightmare. Open wide with this alternate helm for Nidus.

‘ATMOSPHERE’ ARCH-GUN WEAPONS
Update 24.2.9 is bringing some serious floor firepower! You will be able to use your Arch-Guns on the ground - or as we like to call it ‘Atmosphere’ - with the use of a ‘Gravimag’. This device can be installed on any Arch-Gun (with an Orokin Catalyst installed) via the Upgrade Arsenal - similar to installing a Catalyst.

Comparable to the Archwing and K-Drive Launchers, a respective Gear item known as the Archgun Deployer will be required to activate your Atmosphere Arch-Gun. 

Atmosphere Arch-Gun Specificities:

  • Atmosphere Arch-Gun can be summoned in normal missions with the Archgun Deployer, but once Ammo has been depleted there is a cool-down until you can summon again. 
  • Atmosphere Arch-Guns consume Ammo as opposed to unlimited Ammo/Battery in Archwing. Specifically new Heavy Ammo Drops, which can be found from Corpus enemies in Orb Heist missions. 
  • Included change from Hotfix 24.2.6: Shared Affinity gain now applies to Atmosphere Arch-Guns but only while equipped in the main hand.

The following stat changes will be for Atmosphere Arch-Gun mode, while Mastery Rank changes will be global.

Nyx & Titania Changes

For a complete deep dive into intent - check out the original Dev Workshop!

Nyx Changes:

General change: Nyx's abilities have received an audio refresh - new sounds have been added to her powers!

New Passive: Nyx's Passive now causes enemies to miss her more often.

  • Nyx's last Passive randomly disarmed enemies when hit by powers. Since her revisited kit depends on enemies effectively hitting each other, we changed the passive to simply make her harder to hit.
    • This new passive is deactivated when Nyx is using Absorb, meaning no shot will be wasted!

Mind Control:

  • Mind Control has a 4 second wind up at the start where incoming damage will cause the target's damage output to increase. The stronger your weaponry, the deadlier the output of your victim!
    • Reminder: All damage inflicted to the target will apply once Nyx deactivates Mind Control, or when the Duration runs out.
  • Better 'follow Nyx and attack enemies' AI pass.
  • Mind Control can now be cast while moving, and no longer halts Nyx in her tracks!
  • The cast time for Mind Control has been decreased, so you can better use the 4-second window to ‘power up’ your new minion!

Psychic Bolts:

  • No longer deals any damage but will now temporarily disable Armor & Shield, slow down Infested units, and disable Ancients' Auras.
  • Psychic Bolts can be cast once on up to 6 targets. Kill these targets before you can cast again, OR hold the ability to reset targets and cast again!
    • Included change from Hotfix 24.2.9: Added sounds to Psychic Bolts deactivate hold and end - you can despell this ability by holding the ability by default!

Absorb: What Nyx can do with her 'Absorb' now allows for more tactical team play / solo play!

  • Absorb damage type is now based on the damage types it absorbs.
  • A thematic element of 'manipulating others damage' has been weaved through Nyx's Absorb. Absorb now has 'lingering Absorption' - Nyx's Absorb now converts a % of the Absorbed Damage into a self Damage buff when the ability ends for a limited time, dispelled on recast. This means as your teammate or enemies power your Absorb, you can tactically break it for damage/range - and/ or a self-damage buff for Nyx imbued by those around you! This synergizes with Mind Control, allowing more powerful victims, as well as allowing more lethality on Nyx's weakened and distracted enemies.
  • Nyx Absorb explosion radius increases based on the Damage Absorbed (capped Nyx to 75m max).
  • Added +400% Damage cap to Nyx Absorb Damage buff.

Titania Changes:

General Change: Baseline Energy Capacity increased to hit 225 at Max Rank.

Tribute:

  • The Energy cost for Tribute has been decreased from 50 to 25.
  • Simply getting 1 type of Tribute will be enough to have its maximum power. You can continue to acquire Tributes to refresh the Duration, but you no longer need to build them up.
  • As for the 4 Tribute types:
    • Dust - keep as-is:it reduces enemy accuracy by 50%!
    • Thorns - increase to 50% of damage reflected back to the attacker and increased its range from 10m to 30m!
    • Entangle - keep as-is: one Entangle Tribute slows an enemy by 25% but we increased its range from 10m to 30m! 
    • Fullmoon - the 75% damage buff now applies to ALL (Sentinels, Moas, Companions) + Razorwing Butterflies

Lantern:

  • Lantern can be cast up to 4 times at once (new targets replace old). Targets will gradually float back to their starting positions. You will be able to 'explode' all targets by holding the Lantern cast.

Razorwing:

  • Titania’s Razorflies will gain Health when Titania kills enemies while in Razorwing!
  • Razorwing has a 'Vacuum' built in!
  • Optimized Razorwing's ability sound.

Harrow Changes:

  • As per feedback, Harrow’s Systems Blueprint will be added as a Rare drop in Rotation B for Defection missions. This means you will have 2 chances in the Endless loop to obtain Harrow, not just one at Rotation C. To maintain balance, a Corrupted Mod will be moved to Rotation A.
  • Increased Harrow’s Energy gain from his Thurible ability (max ranked now gains 2x as much).
  • Increased Duration of Harrow’s Penance by around 20%.

Venus Osprey Changes:

  • Venus Shield Ospreys that spawn Nullifier bubbles will only spawn if the Orb Vallis Alert level is 3+ and if the enemy level is 20+.
  • Level 2+ Alert level will spawn Shield Ospreys that don’t spawn Nullifier bubbles.
  • A max of 2 Nullifier bubbles can be created per Drone.
  • Total active Nullifier bubbles (from all Drones) in the area will not exceed 4 - 10 bubbles (scaling with player count).

  • Killstream Loader status chance increased from 11 to 13% when used with Catchmoon Chamber.
  • Tombfinger Chamber area-of-effect damage origin now matches point of impact instead of behind it.

 

Controller Responsiveness Changes

We increased controller responsiveness in a number of ways:

One major issue we addressed were cases where almost 50% controller input was required before a hip-fire camera manipulation could be executed. We’ve decreased coded dead zones to allow for more refined, precise aiming and removed the inherited velocity when shifting directions. Players should now notice an immediate falloff in camera movement once input is no longer applied to the control sticks.

Additionally, we have added a number of mathematical improvements regarding the ramp and acceleration curves used to interpolate control stick input. This should make the camera manipulations feel much smoother and allow for a closer approximation of circular movement, compared to the very ‘square’ like motions we had previously.

We’ve also increased the amount of vertical movement seen when manipulating the control stick to reduce the amount of asymmetry between it and horizontal movement. There is still a bias towards the horizontal plane, but moving the camera up/down should not feel so drastically different when now compared to left/right movement.

Conservation Additions & Changes:

  • Animal Pheromone Synthesizer items have been added to The Business’ Offerings! When deployed before using an Echo-Lure, these increase the chance of attracting a Rare variant of the respective animal.
    • Included change from Hotfix 24.2.3: Reduced the Pheromone Synthesizer Standing Cost from 1000 Standing to 100 - 500 Standing depending on the animal.
  • When completing a successful animal Conservation using a Warframe ability, it will yield a ‘Good Capture’, as opposed to sometimes yielding a ‘Perfect Capture’. A successful animal Conservation using the tried-and-true Tranq/Echo-Lure technique was always intended to yield a higher gratitude.
    • Ivara’s Sleep Arrow will however grant a ‘Perfect Capture’ if the shot is a direct hit. The farther off your shot the more distressed the animal gets.
  • Changed the the Tranq Rifle to be ‘Silent’! This should ensure you are not startling animals if you miss - it's only on hit they'll react.
  • Increased range of Tranq Rifle pulsing sound from 100m to 180m.
  • Increased the fire rate of the Tranq Rifle so that it enters the reload state faster.
  • The Conservation gear when tracking animals will function similar to the Fishing gear, where tapping the bound key will auto-equip the respective item, instead of having to hold and re-select the item.
  • Changed the Conservation gear to show the 'Infinity' symbol, indicating the fact that it is not consumed on use.
  • Echo-Lures will no longer need to be equipped in your Gear Spiral, they are auto-equipped in the Conservation gear when a Tranq is equipped.

Dojo UI Changes:

  • The initial Trading Post screen and Research screen in the Dojo have been reworked to not only be more functional and aesthetically pleasing, but also to match your chosen UI Theme!
  • Research in progress will display contribution progress in the right panel and incomplete material contributions will appear faded.
  • Hovering over non-Credit Research requirement materials will show the item info as well as the amount owned.

K-Drive Changes:

  • K-Drive Races will require and reward Standing! Boon has adapted the high risk high reward lifestyle - glinty!!
    • The amount of Standing required is based on the number of gates * 5 (10 gates * 5 = 50 Standing requirement) regardless if you win or lose the race.
    • The amount of Standing rewarded is based on the number of gates * 100 (10 gates * 100 = 1000 Standing) if you successful complete the race.
  • High value tricks will reward you more Standing.
  • A successful K-Drive grind grab will be called a ‘Knuckle Duster’.

  • Blueprints for Warframes obtained from quests will no longer be able to be sold for Credits.
  • The Emote Gear wheel will show Emotes as available to use when you're playing an Emote instead of fading out as though unusable, even though you can still select them to play another/cancel current emote.

  • Reduced the required amount of enemy deaths for the Submersible Archwing Exterminate Sortie mission.
  • Orb Vallis Excavation missions will spawn Excavators that will equally match player count, with the exception of a full squad of 4 players where only 3 Excavators will spawn.
  • Improved Bounty boards to gracefully refresh and have next set of Bounties all lined up and ready to go without downtime.
  • Replaced old Corpus lockers of various types with shiny new and improved Corpus lockers on numerous tilesets.
  • Corpus Lockers/Caches that can be opened will display a holographic symbol to indicate such. Corpus Lockers/Caches without the holographic symbol cannot be opened.
  • Syndicate Offerings screen will display Mastered/Forma icons.
  • The Gift recipient name will be auto-filled with attempting to send said Gift from that respective players Wish List.
  • Read Twitch Drop Inbox messages will be auto-removed after 30 days.
  • Chat will autocomplete when attempting to link a Zaw, MOA Companion, K-Drive, and Kitgun.
  • A search box will be added to the Arsenal Loadout selection screen.
  • Renamed the Archwing Mod category to ‘Vehicles’. Both Archwing and K-Drive Mods will be able to be found here.
  • The Flashlight brightness will be ducked when using a Scanner.
  • Reduced the flashlight FX further when Mining to avoid excessive bloom and inability to see deposits.
  • Numerous performance optimizations across the entire game! Including K-Drive performance improvements and Texture Streaming (it now reacts more quickly with a lower performance cost). We’ve touched upon shaders, particle system, weather, and more!
  • ...and more!
