Operation: Orphix Venom (Concluded on PC)!


Recommended Posts

Orphix Venom 29.6.0





The Sentients are back. Armed with weaponized pulses cleverly designed to disable Warframes, they're staging a takeover of enemy vessels. Deploy your Necramech to survive incoming hordes for as long as possible and earn Blueprints for Lavos, the newest Warframe, plus much more! 


Operation: Orphix Venom is a limited-time event and ends on January 18 at 2 p.m. ET on PC.



With your Warframe compromised, you’ll need to rely on your Necramech to defend enemy ships against a total Sentient takeover. If you don’t yet own a Necramech, you’ll find Necramechs throughout the Operation level that you can Transference into!

Aboard the ambushed Grineer and Corpus vessels, be prepared to face new Sentient adversaries. The Orphix are insidiously engineered to interrupt Transference and wreak havoc. You’ll need to take them out with the strength of your Necramech and Operator, along with the Orphix Resonators, and keep the Sentient Control meter below 100%. Last as long as you can to earn Phasic Cells to exchange for Rewards and stave off the invasion!

Avoid defeat at all costs, Tenno. 




Operation: Orphix Venom will not be easy and requires preparation. You must have completed both the “Heart of Deimos” and “The War Within” Quests in order to begin.


There are 3 tiers of difficulty:

  1. Operation: Orphix Venom

  2. Operation: Orphix Venom - Advanced

  3. Operation: Orphix Venom - Endurance


Progress through each to encounter the enemy at varying difficulties to earn different Rewards along the way! 



Visit the Necralisk on Deimos and talk to Father, who’s eager to demonstrate the power of his Necramechs against the Sentient threat. He’s hoarding a stockpile of special gear that he’ll trade for Phasic Cells, including the Blueprint for the master experimenter and newest Warframe, Lavos, Necramech Mods and more! BUT - there’s more! You can also earn a number of rewards also by just playing the Operation - including Lavos! It’ll be up to you if you want to save your Phasic Cells for Lavos and other items, or get lucky and earn select items within the Operation! Drop Tables are here:https://n8k6e2y6.ssl.hwcdn.net/repos/hnfvc0o3jnfvc873njb03enrf56.html




  • Lavos Blueprint & Parts 

  • Cedo Blueprint & Parts 

  • New Necramech Mods

  • Cryptanaut Necramech Helmet

  • Archgun Skins

    • Cortege Supulchrax Skin

    • Morgha Supulchrax Skin

  • Returning Scarlet Spear Items

    • Ceti Lacera Blueprint

    • Basmu Blueprint

    • Stance Forma Blueprint

    • The Ballroom Simulacrum

    • Phased Clan Sigil

    • Glyphed Clan Sigil

    • Gilded Clan Sigil

    • Warframe Arcanes






Each Orphix has an initial value of 100 points in the first Operation mission. As your fight evolves, so will the Orphix, awarding you more points at a greater difficulty. Orphix will be worth 200 points at the hardest difficulty (Endurance), and scale up from there! Kill Sentients to increase your score as well. The higher your score, the more Phasic Cells you’ll walk away with. 
Try to survive for as long as you can - 36 Orphix will be the maximum amount in the Endurance mission, so once you’ve hit 36, it’s time to extract! The first two Operation missions have a limit of 24 Orphix. Players looking to maximize their score should head to Endurance! .


Phasic Cells can be earned in any Operation mission. But remember - Endurance gives the most points per Orphix, so you’ll earn the most Phasic Cells there. A prepared and coordinated squad even more so! While this Operation is possible Solo, best results will come from coordinated Squads! 



We will be turning on Leaderboards after 1 or 2 Hotfixes to ensure the competition begins after key issues that players report are resolved. We will advise all Tenno when Leaderboards come online!


Clan Scores are determined based on the sum of all participating members' best scores. We balanced this around about 50% member participation for Gold Tier trophies. 


Clan Tier

































3 New Sentient Enemies will be encountered during Operation: Orphix Venom and can be spawned in the Simulacrum once fully Scanned!



This lightweight Sentient mounts itself to solid ground in order to deploy massive long range cannons.



These ethereal Sentients attack with both a sonic barrage and a thunderous homing orb.



A high-order Sentient that bifurcates its body, creating a portal it uses to summon reinforcements and projectiles. Armed with twin cannons.

JFC NO.  FFS, our goddamn companions are still active and vulnerable, you have zero excuses for not just letting us have the radar and vacuum they provide that should be innate to the player regardless because they are basic QOL and instead of being even remotely reasonable, you decided that "here's an enemy radar mod for you mech that you have to grind for and then manage to fit in a build that you already have issues fitting everything into."  was a good bandaid to this poor design choice.

No issues so far, except i can't really scan any of the new enemies because my Warframe can't get to them, my Helios stays with the Warframe and the Operator dies too quickly before i can scan using him.

Oh don't worry, I'm sure they'll come out with yet another bandaid mod that you can gimp your build with to have a little bit of functionality back.

21 mns and 520 cells. Legendary arcanes cost 800 each, 800 x 21 = 16800. 16800/520x21mns=678mns=11 hours 30 mns o_O?

Lavos=4500cells. 4500/520x21=181mns=3 hours.

Cedo=4500 cells. 4500=3 hours.


Lavos, Cedo, and Mods can be earned by just playing the missions as well : https://n8k6e2y6.ssl.hwcdn.net/repos/hnfvc0o3jnfvc873njb03enrf56.html

It is likely you will come across some items father has in the Store within the Operation itself. See the Orphix Venom Drop tables.

HI, Reb. Why there's two drop tables by mission type? Two tables for advanced and endurance... 

EDIT: OK, it's same tables.

So Necramechs can only be used in this new gamemode? Can't summon them in other missions (except open worlds ofc).

Plan is they will come to the other gamemodes as well. I'm guessing they are using this event as a testing ground for that, since they said that Necramechs wouldn't be able to fit through the comparatively low doors most rooms have.

I have to ask - how will Lavos and his gun be acquired when the event ends? Back when you pulled similar thing with Hyldrin, I thought it was a bad precedent - locking warframes behind operations. While Hyldrin turned out to be more or less acquirable due to the way thermia event works, now we're back to really questionable practice. I think devs ought to explain.

The prices still a bit too high for the time invested though, but I really like the idea of sharing reward drops and store goods, if you dont get the luck to get the thing you want after some runs, you will maybe have the credits to buy it. This really needs to be implemented on more places like the arbitrations...
