EVENT EXTRACT BUG 1: Countdown Timer disappears when an Orphix is destroyed.

  • TYPE: In-Game
  • DESCRIPTION: Tried to exit operation alone (public mission, also was not the host) via extract point, while other squad mates stayed. While counting down, the extract timer disappeared when an Orphix was destroyed. Had to move out and then back in the extract point to restart countdown.
  • VISUAL: -
  • REPRODUCTION: Stand in the extract point alone to start the countdown timer, and wait for an Orphix to be destroyed.
  • EXPECTED RESULT: Uninterrupted countdown timer.
    • 1 active orphix:
      • The countdown timer disappears while in the extract point alone (not the host) after the orphix got destroyed. Waiting without restarting the timer does nothing. Wasn't able to test with two or three players in the extract point.
      • On other instances, countdown timer worked fine (still not the host).
    • 2 active orphix: After 1 of the 2 orphixes was destroyed, the countdown timer worked fine while extracting alone (still not the host).
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: 100% Inconsistent.


EVENT EXTRACT BUG 2: Stuck in Rewards Screen after extract.

  • TYPE: In-Game
  • DESCRIPTION: After exiting mission alone (public mission, as the host), got stuck in Rewards Screen.
  • VISUAL: -
  • REPRODUCTION: Solo extract as the host?
  • EXPECTED RESULT: Not get stuck.
  • OBSERVED RESULT: Can't close the layer or do anything else. Had to Alt+F4.
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: Unknown. Only doing public missions ATM, most squad mates extract with me.


EVENT + EXCALIBUR UMBRA BUG: Inconsistent Sentience and Transference In.

  • TYPE: In-Game
    • While in Necramech or Operator mode, inconsistent Excalibur Umbra sentience state after Orphix is destroyed - sometimes auto enabled, sometimes remains disabled.
    • After transference out from Necramech In Operator mode, inconsistent transference in - sometime spawns Excalibur Umbra in Operator's location as expected, sometimes spawns in Excalibur Umbra's location instead even if it's a few rooms back. (Aside: transference in works fine while using other frames that I used, didn't try all - which spawns in Operator's location.)
  • VISUAL: -
  • REPRODUCTION: Inconsistent. Tried getting caught in the bubble spawn while in frame/operator/mech modes, or getting in the bubble from outside while in frame/operator/mech modes - all have mixed results.
    • The sentience should be auto enabled after Orphix is destroyed because sentience is Excalibur Umbra's unique trait, right?
      Err never mind, not unique *cough echoes of umbra when cough* but still, sentience should be auto enabled.
    • Transference in should spawn Excalibur Umbra where the Operator activates it - like with other frames.
  • OBSERVED RESULT: As described.
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: Inconsistent. 


EVENT + UNIVERSAL ORBS BUG: Uncollected universal orbs follow necramechs, with stacking sound loops.

  • TYPE: In-Game
  • DESCRIPTION: Uncollected universal orbs - particularly generated by Lavos in this case - follow necramechs, with stacking sound loops.
  • VISUAL: -
  • REPRODUCTION: Pickup universal orbs using any necramech with missing health and full energy.
  • EXPECTED RESULT: Uncollected universal orbs shouldn't follow necramechs (although kinda nice to have blobs following you around as health and energy reserves, but remove the annoying sound loop. LOL.)
  • OBSERVED RESULT: As described. (Aside: will probably happen in open world maps too, didn't test that personally though, FYI.)


EVENT HOST MIGRATION BUG: Host migration disables mods on necramech's equipped archgun.

  • TYPE: In-Game
  • DESCRIPTION: Host migration disables mods on necramech's equipped archgun.
  • VISUAL: -
  • REPRODUCTION: Host disconnects. I don't know if this happens too when the host extracts and others stay.
  • EXPECTED RESULT: After host migration, mods on necramech's equipped archgun should still be enabled.
  • OBSERVED RESULT: My necramechs equipped archgun's damage, fire rate, etc. etc. were all reduced (felt like default stats without mods). Same results for me when the necramech was equipped with either Mausolon or Fluctus. Though the heavy weapon's mods still worked even after host migration - I had Fluctus equipped on both the heavy weapon and necramech weapon slots on one of the instances.
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: 2 for 2 when I experienced it.


EVENT + LOCKED OUT THEN LOCKED IN: Locked out own necramech but was able to use free ones. Then got locked in the warframe for a few rounds.

  • TYPE: In-Game
  • DESCRIPTION: Locked out of own necramech but was able to use free ones. Then got locked in the warframe for a few rounds.
  • VISUAL: -
    • Transference out of warframe at almost the same time as the orphix bubble appears? Or get caught by the orphix bubble while in a warframe or necramech? Try both but before and after necramech summon? Not sure yet, experienced it once (for now). 
    • Casting an ability - in my reproduction's case, was casting Dispensary on Excalibur Umbra - at almost the same time as the orphix bubble appears? Still not sure.
    • Either transference out of warframe (not directly transferring in the summoned personal necramech) or casting an ability at almost the same as the orphix bubble appears (or at some point in the initial sound cue). Kinda sure - was casting Dispensary on Excalibur Umbra on the second instance; was transferring out of Excalibur Umbra in the third instance; was transferring out of Hildryn with Aegis Storm active on the fourth instance (didn't happen on earlier runs when I let the orphix bubble transfer the operator out even with Hildryn's Aegis Storm active, only happened on transference out key press).
  • EXPECTED RESULT: Not get locked out of own necramech or get locked in the warframe.
    • First Instance: Summoning necramech works fine in both states:
      • State 1 - Locked out of own necramech only: For a few rounds, couldn't transference in own necramech, but could transference in free ones inside or outside the orphix bubble. Warframe abilities were still usable and can transference in or out of warframe  - was using Excalibur Umbra if that could be a factor.
      • State 2 - Locked out of own necramech and locked in the warframe: After a few rounds with State 1 active, I suddenly got locked in the warframe with "abilities in use bug" and couldn't transference out. Then when I got in the orphix bubble and wen't to operator mode, i could still transference in free necramechs but not in my own. Then, once I transference back in the warframe I got locked in again... then after a few rounds of State 2, it went back to State 1 until we extracted.
    • Second Instance:
      • Single State: Locked out of the necramech, then once I got in the warframe it locked me in too, persisted until extract. 
    • Third and Fourth Instances:
      • Single State: same as Second Instance.
    • Unknown. Experienced it once (for now).
    • Twice experienced, but still uncertain.
    • Requires luck (or great timing) when transferring out of a warframe or casting a warframe ability as the orphix bubble appears.

OVE Mission complete while downed/reviving; no mission score/rewards

  • TYPE: OVE mission extraction
  • DESCRIPTION: Completed 36-kill OVE, while waiting for other players to reach extraction I was downed.  Held X to revive, at the moment I revived the mission completed.  I received resources and mods I collected during the mission, but did not have an event score, receive any phasic cells, or my earned round rewards.
  • REPRODUCTION: Could attempt to recreate the circumstances.  I would rather not spend another hour to test.
  • EXPECTED RESULT: I should have received event score and round rewards.
  • OBSERVED RESULT: Mission completion failed to recognize my participation in event.
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: Currently unknown.

EDIT: Also received no affinity from mission, despite it displaying at the end of mission screen.  No longer certain I actually received anything at all.

  • TYPE: In-Game
  • DESCRIPTION: Was running in a Bonewidow Necramech provided by the event and was running into a Orphix Area. Transferred out of Necramech to  destroy the sentient sensor thing, only to find that I'm now invincible, gravity no longer affects me, and enemies ignore me as if I was a non-entity. Necramech also vanished.
  • REPRODUCTION: Unknown if the bug can be replicated. Fixed itself after I transferred into a new Necramech/
  • EXPECTED RESULT: I should have transferred out, blasted the sensor with my amp, then be able to return to my necramech.
  • OBSERVED RESULT: I assume I became a non-entity with full capabilities of a tenno, including the ability to kill enemies
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: 1/7 Necramechs. ran t1-t3 missions without this happening, Happened on my second run and have no idea how to replicate it.

This same bug happened to me. However it happened while I was holding a sentient. I was having my friend shoot it in my hand, and I didn't realize we were being shredded by another sentient, and the mech was destroyed while I held a sentient. I'm not sure if that's the main cause of the bug, but it's what happened for me.

  • TYPE: [Launcher, In-Game, Chat, etc.]
  • DESCRIPTION: [Tell us what you were doing when the bug occurred. Details here are helpful]
  • VISUAL: [This is where you would add your screenshot or video]
  • REPRODUCTION: [Tell us how we can replicate this bug, if known]
  • EXPECTED RESULT: [Tell us what you think should have happened, ex: “I should have drawn my weapon”]
  • OBSERVED RESULT: [What actually happened, ex: “I went into a T-Pose”]
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: [How often it happens when you try to reproduce it, ex: “It only happens half the time / when I am crouching / when using Hydroid.”]
  • In-game
  • 2 issues: 
  1. Affinity not gained for mech + weapon
    Not sure why this is happening, 2 theories. Mech is destroyed and so no affinity gained for some reason, or mech is not present at extraction (extracting as frame lets say) does not show mech affinity gained on mission result screen. Does the game see what you extract with differently? 
  2. Loss of XP if entering another mech by accident 
    Not sure why XP was lost, I accidentally got into another mech (conveniently placed next to mine of course) and this led to a loss of all XP when I got back into my mech. 
  • N/A
  • 1) play a mission and die in mech, then extract. 
    2) play a mission, use another mech after having gained some XP in yours. 

  • Should get XP, also should not reset if another mech is entered
  • Happened more times than I had successful XP gains.


Other things which could be improved: 

  • Make getting into a mech like getting into a Warframe with regards to companions. My companion can still die, however it cannot be revived in mech-form. If the companion can take damage/die I should be able to benefit from its mods like Animal Instinct, vacuum/fetch etc. Also not sure why Animal Instinct does not work in operator mode but vacuum/fetch does? Anyway consider making the pet immune when in mech-mode if its mods cannot be active. 
  • After crouching in a mech, starting to walk should auto-deactivate crouch. One cannot run/dash as the game thinks you are crouched, however your height is the same when walking, so it should just auto-deactivate as it appears as though you are at normal height. Little confusing, not intuitive.

  • TYPE: In Game
  • DESCRIPTION: Sortie1, Spy mission with energy reduction. I go to use operator to void dash a few times, no problem, then i can't use operator. No enemies around.
  • REPRODUCTION: Unwilling to repeat mission.
  • EXPECTED RESULT: As there are no Sortie limitations on restricting the use of the Operator, so I should be able to use Operator any time i want.
  • OBSERVED RESULT: After a few void dashes was locked into warframe unable to access Operator.
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: Unwilling to test further.

Issue obvious: Beacons spawning behind locked doors. Ruined this run at once, like many others before.

Sometimes the Beacons won't even spawn at all (2 out of 3, or simply put 1-2 pieces missing which results into game- and progression-breaking error = force failing/extracting from the mission).

  • TYPE: In-game, end of orphix mission, 2 parts
  • DESCRIPTION: Grinding aff in T3 oprhix mission with double aff buff. Tried to ext and countdown to ext reset every ~20 sec for around 5 rounds of orphix spawns. I died once during this time.
  • REPRODUCTION: Attempt ext without rest of squad.
  • EXPECTED RESULT: Normal ext and max rank mech as shown in progress window. Showed max rak in window and rank 27 in in-game UI.
  • OBSERVED RESULT: Timer would appear to reset randomly as well as everytime a NEW orphix would spawn. After ext timer reset for the 10-14th time another player came along and ext as well. This forced the timer to run down correctly. However, in the end of match screen it should I only recieved 5 ranks on my mech and reconfirmed this in the arsenal screen.
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: The lost aff has only happened once. The delayed ext timer has happened a few times to both myself and others I play with.

  • TYPE: In Game
  • DESCRIPTION: Get locked out of Necramech when need to enter the no warframe-zone of event.
    Use Helminth Xata's Whisper, summon own Necramech, enter no-warframe area. Kill Orphix Resonators, kill Orphix, rinse and repeat. Few Orphix later after i use Helminth Xata's Whisper, i either 1. can't summon my necramech or 2. i can't use operator to enter necramech or 3. i can use operator but still cant enter Necramech.
  • REPRODUCTION: Any of the variations on the issue happen every event mission. I usually do endurance but with no players joining mission, i then did easiest mission and same thing happened.
  • EXPECTED RESULT: Should be able to use warframe/helminth abilities then enter necramech to complete mission.
  • OBSERVED RESULT: Can use abilities sometimes and not at others.

    Would also be nice to be able to void dash PAST a Necramech without entering the Necramech.
    Once Necramech 'grabs' the operator, there is no way out of it until the loading animation is finished.
    When i want to enter a Necramech i go up to it and press 5.

Hello, I don't know if there is already report for this, about Hildryn skill 4.

But I will just put it here..


  • TYPE: In-Game, Orphix Venom Event, or Regular Mission
  • DESCRIPTION: Hildryn Skill 4 with full range mods not working properly, I use full range till radius 39.75m but the mobs in Orphix Venom only affected when they come less than half the range, ALSO apparently her skill not affecting those lower altitude/floor from her and sometimes the higher altitude mobs too. And the mobs sometimes not affected even when near her.
  • VISUAL: N/A (Sorry I forgot to screen shot)
  • REPRODUCTION: You can try using full range mod like Overextended, Stretch, Augur Reach and try it in Orphix Venom mission.
  • EXPECTED RESULT: All the mobs in radius (that can be affected) is affected by the skill even when the mobs is a bit lower / a bit higher altitude
  • OBSERVED RESULT: The affected mobs affected only less than half expected range or sometimes not affected at all (not nullifiers unit)
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: Every time I use it in Orphix Venom mission

Thank you in advance 

Merry Christmas

  • VISUAL: Gif of half the image being mirrored to show it more clearly:NnoOWDo.gif
  • REPRODUCTION: Use Guardmode with Voidrig.
  • EXPECTED RESULT: See where you'll aim.
  • OBSERVED RESULT: You often shoot a bit too the left than you want.

the bug that prevents the use of ANY abilities (incl. the transference to the opertor) is still around - and i can say for sure that at least this one is NOT because of re-summoning a mech while the 'other' one is in the influence of a nullifyer. it seems more like this happen during some other 'mode' changes - in my case, i had this happen when using voidrigs 4th and went back into the normal mode in a rather short call... maybe the animation was 'interupted' by this - afterall, we can start firing the arquebex toward our crosshair even before the animation of the mech going into guard-mode is fully played out... this might be happen here too but with more dire consequences.

usually i blame either scripts going fubar and/or animations being interrupted by something else as the most likely culprit for bugs and glitches in warframe and this here is again on of those occasions ^^)

  • TYPE: In-game
  • DESCRIPTION: The orphix didn't open after killing marked resonators : orphix resonator resonater either didn't spawn or wasn't marked, on the second half of the orphix
  • EXPECTED RESULT: Orphix should have opened after killing the marked resonators 
  • OBSERVED RESULT: Orphix didn't open after killing marked resonators
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: 2 times in ~15 runs
  • TYPE: In-game
  • DESCRIPTION: Ability use prevented bug again, can't go out of the necramech, however after dying we can do anything else like using frame abilities and using operaor. When summoning and using the necramech again, the bug is still happening.
  • REPRODUCTION: No idea, I was client
  • EXPECTED RESULT: I should be able to use necramech abilities and go out fo the necramech
  • OBSERVED RESULT: I couldn't use necramech abilities and go out of the necramech
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: 2 times in ~6 runs after the patch

Nullifiers often made invulnerable to Ironbride when Ironbride broke their bubble

  • TYPE: In-game
  • DESCRIPTION: If Ironbride broke the bubble, the Nullifier within (and sometimes other enemies that were within it when it broke) are invulnerable to more Ironbride attacks.
  • REPRODUCTION: Use Bonewidow's Ironbride to attack Nullifiers with active bubbles during the Orphix Venom event.
  • EXPECTED RESULT: Ironbride should have damaged the enemies on subsequent attacks.
  • OBSERVED RESULT: Ironbride attacks do not damage the Nullifier, and those same attack swings continue to damage other enemies. Swapping to other weapons such as my archgun will allow me to damage them normally.
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: It happens about half the time I attack a Nullifier with an active bubble. Half the time this result happens, the other half of the time they die normally. It may have to do with the machine segment above the bubble getting damaged and destroying the bubble that way. The game may not be realizing the enemies that were within the bubble are no longer protected from damage since the bubble was destroyed in a non-standard way.

  • REPRODUCTION: Get unranked Fluctus and try to rank it in Orphix
  • EXPECTED RESULT: Fluctus keeping reached rank.
  • OBSERVED RESULT: Fluctus getting no rank at all or random rank. (Range overflow?)

First of all sorry for my bad English.

  • TYPE: In-Game
  • DESCRIPTION: I was running around the map in necramech and decided that I needed the XP warframe. I got out of necramech and my operator started flying through the air and sometimes walking through the air. I could not return to necramech, because it immediately disappeared. By jumping, I could control the hover height. The bug was resolved when I started running around the map and pressing 5 in order to get back into the warframe or the new necramech. Also note that my operator was invulnerable.I couldn't get to the menu, just esc didn't work.
  • EXPECTED RESULT: I think I should have got out of necramech and just keep running and not flying
  • REPRODUCTION RATE: This was my first experience in this operation. 1/1 game
