Update 13.8.0: Breeding Grounds


Recommended Posts

I am not totally understanding the point stuff.


Which is the given one for the rewards the "total" points or the "high scored" ones?

It is so freaking confusing <.<'


And no, I didn't read the whole thread.

Breeding Grounds will include point structure that allows for rewards based on points earned in ONE SINGLE mission! "


After you play  more missions you will get more points in every single mission.

Quite like the new Hive mission type, for once it feels like you actually have to stay on your toes with the Infested, and it's actually surprisingly tricky to seek out the tumors while fighting the relentless swarms of enemies. Though for the record those new Ospreys are unscannable, fidgety little mutants.


Anyway, does teaming up with players have any effect on points, or do you still only earn one additional point a mission regardless of squad size?



P.S. One of the most visually impressive tilesets yet, a pat on the back for the designers! Also loving the new Dead Space-esque music.

Operation: Breeding Grounds!


Tenno, we have a problem.

Alad V has developed a way to direct the spread of the Infestation. Using these newly engineered "Hive" organisms, the Infestation is able to corrupt a new ship or colony almost instantly. There are also disturbing reports coming in that the virus has evolved. It is now capable of absorbing and corrupting non-organic beings. Not even the robotic soldiers of the Corpus are safe now. The only way to stop the spread is to destroy these hives.

We have just received word of a massive outbreak near Eris. An entire fleet of Corpus ships has been exposed to this new bioplague. Alad V is almost certainly responsible. If Alad V's hives are allowed to gain a strategic foothold here, the Infested will become unstoppable. They will overrun the system in a matter of days. If we don’t put an end to this now, the Corpus, the Grineer, the Tenno...we could all fall in the wake of this horrible scourge.

-The Lotus


So begins Operation: Breeding Grounds!



- Visit the threatened ship on Eris to find and destroy three separate hives. These hives greatly accelerate the spread of the Infestation.

- Each hive is protected by several tumor nodes, destroy these to make the hive vulnerable.

- Destroying the hives is likely to have unintended consequences. Be on alert for everything from unstable ship systems to Infested counter-defenses.

- Once you have wiped out all three hives, head to Extraction.


- This Operation is on until Thursday, June 26 at 12 PM EDT. 

- You can attack the three hives in any order. Work individually and attempt to destroy them all at once or work with your fellow Tenno to take them out one at a time.

- Hive effects compound, so tackling each hive will create a unique effect on your mission and the ultimate combination of all three effects during Extraction.

- With every mission you run, the Infested evolve and become more deadly.



Operation: Breeding Grounds will include point structure that allows for rewards based on points earned in ONE SINGLE mission! This will be denoted in the UI in the "Best" field under the Operations tab to help you keep track of your current best score.

6 points: Breeding Grounds badge!

17 points: Dual Stat Fire Mods!

48 points: Prova Vandal!

The top 3 Clans per Clan Tier will receive Gold, Silver, and Bronze “Breeding Grounds” Trophies! For Clan Leaderboards, a Clan’s score is the sum of the Best Point run for all members.



There are 6 types of Hives that yield different points depending on the difficulty of the mission and the difficulty of the hive type. Destroying hives has adverse effects and dangerous consequences. Be on alert! Each mission will contain 3 hives determined by the difficulty of the mission. You will notice a "Total" value in the UI under the Operations tab. The higher this number, the stronger the stink and more difficult the missions!


Difficulty of the mission is increased in the following way:


You will notice a "Total" value in the UI under the Operations tab. The higher this number, the stronger the stink and more difficult the missions! All Tenno will begin playing ‘Difficulty 1’ missions with ‘Difficulty 1’ hives! But, this difficulty won’t stay at ‘1’ forever. The Infested can smell the carnage of your missions and will become more and more difficult and aggressive the more Breeding Ground missions you complete. It will take several runs for the stink of the Infested to stick to you. By completing more missions, you will encounter more difficult hives and more difficult enemies! These difficulty increases will allow you to yield higher points in a single run, with endless potential if you want to compete in clan leaderboards!

Note: grouping together with other Tenno will have an affect on difficulty depending on the level of combined stench!

Enjoy! We plan on making Hive Sabotage a permanent addition to the game down the road, so let us know what you think!

You need to get points in ONE mission for the best run in order to receive the rewards. The total amount goes to your operation score, separate from the rewards. Difficulty tiers of the missions increase the amount of points you get upon Extraction, and difficulty is determined by the "stench" left on the player/players with the carnage of the Infested encountered previously. Combined stenches=more difficulty.

6 points in one mission=event badge (Breeding Ground badge)

17 points in one mission=event mods (Breeding Ground set)

48 points in one mission=Prova Vandal

Grinding levels: off the charts.
