Question

It says "without using life support modules."

Does that mean we can't use the pods the normal way,
press X on them when close,
or does it mean we can't use them at all, even to get Kuva?

1 hours of Kuva Survival where we get no Kuva sounds like a big pass for me.

Correct.

You CANNOT hit the use key on the towers to get life support

You CAN bring kuva drops to the towers to siphon kuva

You CAN pick up life support that drops from enemies

Yeah I just figured and edit my previous post the towers are called capsules and the small thingyntuat mods drop are called Modules. So getting loki, ash, Octavia and going into stealth and just wait untill u get those capsules.

I confirm this as well.

for anyone planning this,

would suggest to bring at least 3 CP , enemies do get tough after 40 minutes.

Nekros and a defense frame (Frost / Limbo) are essential , last two can be support and DPS to ensure kill ratio.

Just finished with a group, you can pick up the life supports that drop from enemies, can't use towers.

you can use them to harvest kuva or you can ignore them completely or you can use them as fodder like use as kuva siphon then let them get killed

Nekros is a must pretty much but today me and a clan mate did it with 2 people Nekros & Rhino and no we're not pro players with optimal builds we just didn't have anyone else. We used a first few support pods as kuva siphons then let the rest get killed, constant movement and reviving eachother (a lot of operator mode involved) does it.

I dunno. We didn't try to use them for kuva either, lmao.

I stand corrected.

I checked it at the Tenno Tools website (before doing the 1 hr mission), where it says capsules: "Stay 60 minutes in the Kuva survival mission without using life support capsules".

Sorry about that.

However, mission-wise it actually is the capsules you can't use... so DE has the wrong text/word in the description. And some players were smart & knowledgeable enough to notice, which understandably led to a somewhat strange conclusion (having to do Taveuni for an hour while trying to NOT pick up even one module would be quite hellish, in addition one would have to burn all the capsules for life support and not get any kuva as a result).

The UI is wrong.

Source a bunch of livestreams doing the challenge.

1st try - a player activated life support unintentionally at 46 minutes (trying to pick up a kuva catalyst close to the capsule).

2nd try - one player decides the mission is not for him (brought a build for "leveling") and exits the mission at around 38 minutes after dying every 20 seconds...

3rd try - one player joins the mission (via the recruit chat) without understanding what it is about and moves to the extraction zone after 20 minutes. You can imagine the ensuing discussion... (the guy exits after 5 mins of back-and-forth).

4th try - everything going smoothly (Nekros with good despoil range staying inside a Limbo rift bubble), general small-talk in the chat and suddenly one player writes: "did we all friend up before the mission?" -> discussion about how this would be beneficial (doing two missions at once for 2 x 5000 standing). Just before 30 minutes we decide to extract (at 30), friend up and re-start.

5th try - smooth sailing until 60 mins, with 19600 kuva as a bonus (incl. kavat extra). Also hits the "8 rare modules" target for even more standing and (together with a few from the earlier missions) the "30 eximuses" target. Frustrating start leading to a nice feel-good glow. Decided I like the new system...

So basically a 'normal' kuva survival farm. Good to know, thanks for the info.

Why not friend up mid mission? It worked for me

No, it does not. It says "life support capsules".

Which are the ones Lotus drops in, not the ones that drops from enemies (those are "modules").

So, you just need to go 60 minutes without activating a single life support CAPSULE for "life support". You can use them for kuva farming as normal.

You can also pick up the "life support modules" dropping from enemies (otherwise the mission would be impossible).

In my opinion it is one of the better challenges, since it is quite hard for "less than experienced" players (the enemies will be at lvl 140-150 at the end, with lots of eximuses). Btw, doing three ESO-fights is child's play compared to this (but nets the same amount of standing) => the amount of standing does not scale with the difficulty, rather it is a question of also having to do hard missions to max your standing...

i agree, in fact i was about to post a new thread about this too, seeing loot right in front of you without the ability to take it is too much for me to take in

Aren't the modules the drops and the pods are called capsule?

Which confuses me even more, are we supposed to dodge random drops for 60 minutes? Oo
