Operation: Plague Star has returned on all platforms until June 26 at 2:00PM ET!
Attention Tenno! Ostron scouts have reported that the Plague Star has once again made impact on the Plains of Eidolon! Please review this handy guide and FAQ for all the info you need to conquer this returning Operation.
This run of Plague Star will be the first on Nintendo Switch! As a friendly upfront update for PC, PS4, and Xbox One Tenno, your Operational Supply Standing from previous occurrences of Operation: Plague Star is still all intact.
Operation: Plague Star
Rally your Squad and defend the Plains of Eidolon!
The infested boil that threatened the Plains is back, uglier and more putrid than before. Vay Hek possesses a toxin that can destroy the boil at the meteorite crash site, but he refuses to help. Steal his toxin and destroy the boil before the Infested make their way to Cetus.
What You Need To Do
Konzu has a Plague Star Specific Bounty for you. Completing the series of Bounty Missions will earn you continued Operation Standing to shop for all the Event Rewards! You should to speak to Konzu at Cetus to begin running the Plague Star Bounty!
What You Need To Know
The Plague Star Bounty starts with enemies in the Medium difficulty range, but you can increase the stakes. The more Bounties you complete, the more standing you earn toward something new: Operation Syndicate! Nakak, the oddities vendor, represents the Operational Supply Syndicate for Operation: Plague Star! The Rewards Nakak holds to exchange for standing aren't just vanity - some allow you to increase the stakes to earn more!
Much like the way we used a token system for the Ambulas Reborn event, we have taken that idea one step further. Reminder: Nakak, the oddities vendor, represents the Operational Supply Syndicate for Operation: Plague Star!
Visit Nakak with earned standing to choose your Operation Rewards!
Plague Star Specific:
Eidolon Phylaxis: Equip to earn more standing and make the event harder levels!
Clan Scoring & Rewards:
Once again, you will be able to use your Hemocyte Cystolith to build Operation trophies for your Dojo! As before, the required Cystolith costs will depend on the size of your Clan. The trophy costs for a Ghost Clan are as follows: Terracota 10, Bronze 25, Silver 50, Gold 100.
Requirements for a Shadow Clan are x3, Storm Clans are x10, Mountain Clans x30, and Moon Clans x100.
A Solo Player bringing 4 of each can earn 3000 independently, or a squad of 4 with one each can also earn 3000.
“How do I participate in Operation Plague Star?”
Operation Plague Star can be accessed by speaking with Konzu in Cetus. The first Bounty listed in his menu will be “Operation Plague Star.”
“Where do I turn in my Operational Supply?”
Operational Supply earned from completing Operation Plague Star can be turned in to Nakak, Cetus’ oddities vendor by selecting “Operational Supply.”
“Does my daily Standing cap affect my Operational Supply gain?”
No, the Operational Supply earned in the event is not affected by your daily cap.
“How do I summon Hemocyte to earn the Hunter Mod Set?”
The Hemocyte enemy can be spawned by mixing the “Infested Catalyst” into the toxin during Stage 2 of the bounty. The “Infested Catalyst” can be crafted after Researching the reusable blueprint found in your Dojo’s Bio Lab. Make sure you equip it in your Gear tab!
“How do I use the Eidolon Phylaxis to increase my Standing gain?”
The Eidolon Phylaxis can be mixed into the toxin during stage 2 of the bounty to increase its lethality and increase your Standing gain. They can be crafted using a reusable blueprint available for purchase once you reach the “Collaborator” rank (rank 1) in the Operational Supply Syndicate. Make sure you equip it in your Gear tab!
“Will I be able to build the Trophies for this Operation if I missed them the first time?”
Yep! You will be able to build the Clan Trophies with your existing and newly earned Hemocyte Cystolith.
“Are any items event exclusive?”
Nope! Rewards in Operation Plague Star will return in future events. This means that the Infested Zaw parts will be re-obtainable in future events.
“Can my Clan build a the Operation Trophies after the event ends?”
Yes! You are able to craft the trophies indefinitely so long as you possess an adequate amount of the Hemocyte Cystolith.
"Is my progress/rank in the Operational Supply Syndicate saved?"
Yes, your rank in the Operational Supply Syndicate will be saved when the event ends and is carried forward.
“Has my Operational Supply Standing been saved from the last Operation: Plague Star?”
It has! We have decided to keep all player’s Operational Supply Standing fully intact form wherever they last left off in Operation: Plague Star!
Thanks Tenno! Go splatter some Hemocyte guts around the Plains!

See you next week for our last week of streams before TennoCon 2019!
Calling all Tenno and Wukong lovers!
Released in 2015, Wukong entered the Arsenal as an homage to Chinese folklore. Since his initial inception, we’ve undergone changes to Melee and beyond which have made this Warframe feel a bit left behind. As highlighted in our latest Devstream, exciting developments are in the works for Wukong - and we are not monkeying around. Read on to see how we plan on making all his abilities a bit more active and meaningful:
Reasons for changes: Iron Jab is being replaced as it essentially exists as a weaker version of other powers. Wukong’s Ultimate can fulfill and surpass the role of Iron Jab, while fulfilling more of Wukong’s lore and creating a more powerful, synergized kit.
Reasons for changes: Previously, Cloud Walker did not have many use cases as it was a slower and lesser stealth option than that of other frames. These changes make the Ability good for repositioning, more well-rounded - and WAY faster.
Reasons for changes: Previously, Defy’s invulnerability was not very interactive. This change features invulnerability while encouraging more tactical, active, and interesting gameplay techniques. As many of us used Defy to be immortal, it simply was too much of a set-it-and-forget it ability. Changing it to still offer invulnerability is important to us, and strengthening the rest of his Abilities makes up for the loss of complete god mode.
Reasons for changes: When Primal Fury was initially used previously, it felt weak due to short range and after some use felt strong. These changes will enable a stronger, more exciting play while featuring a taste of the upcoming Melee 3.0 system.
Right now, Wukong is one of our less utilized Warframes. We hope that these changes will create a more interesting and engaging playing experience for current Wukong mains while helping this trickster find his way into the hearts of future fans. To celebrate the changes, all players who currently own Wukong will receive 3 Forma!
We’re really excited to share these early stages, but keep in mind that everything listed is still subject to change prior to release! Please feel free to share your constructive feedback and thoughts below on the developments coming to The Monkey King. As Lotus once said, “Everybody's got something to hide, Tenno. Except Wukong.”
*Wukong will be disabled in Conclave after his Revisit has launched until the team can properly balance him for the Conclave gamemode.
Today, Rebecca and Pablo hosted a Wukong Dev Workshop stream where they answered some of your questions and showed gameplay of the changes coming to Wukong. We recommend checking out the full video if you have time, linked below:
Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_adcUHClrDY
We also managed to track down some of your clone FAQs from today’s stream!
1) Will Wukong’s clone trigger alarms?
2) Does the clone have its own combo counter and does it benefit from Blood Rush?
Yes, and yes.
3) Will the clone try to avoid Nullifiers? In the stream, he dominated a Nullifier, will that happen usually?
No. What happened in the stream today was a bit of a unique case. Typically, the clone will attempt to take on a Nullifier, and will take health damage over time while inside a Nullifer’s field.
4) Will a Wukong Specter also create its own clone?
5) What happens to the clone when you go into Operator mode?
The clone will continue functioning while a player is in Operator mode, but will remain anchored to Wukong.
6) Can the clone use alt fire on weapons?
This will depend on the weapon, as some will have AI behaviour defined.
7) Can the clone use heavy weapons?
Ropa Ropa Ropa Ropa Ropalolyyyyyyyst, it comes and goes, it grabs and throooOOOOoows. Megan and Danielle will be engaging and taking down this sky beast on stream for the first time!

If you’ve been keeping track of the Hotfixes and hamsters today, you’ll know that we’re currently trying to resolve issues within Operation: Plague Star before we launch it. Currently, the issues make Plague Star incompletable, which simply does not sit well with anyone.
As we work toward fixing this for all Platforms, we’re also aware of an unfortunate crash on Xbox One that requires us to submit to Cert, which we just did, meaning Xbox One can’t Hotfix the Plague Star fixes until Cert has passed. We predict a quick turnaround for Cert given the scope of the fix.
With that being said, we’ll be launching Plague Star on all platforms once the Plague Star issues are solved and Xbox One has passed Cert. Like Nightwave, it's important to have Plague Star run simultaneously on all Platforms, and we're doing our best to make this happen as quickly as possible.
Understandably, this news is frustrating considering we’ve said ‘June 12’ for awhile now, but we can’t ship an unplayable Plague Star.
Apologies for the delay. We’ll keep everyone in the loop on the status of these fixes and when you can expect Plague Star this week!
Nightwave: Intermission is now live on all platforms until July 5th at 11:59 PM ET.
What is Nightwave: Intermission?
Nightwave: Intermission is a 15 Rank evergreen reward Intermission! As we work towards content for Series 2, we wanted to release an interim gap to ensure rewards were accessible! Nora Cred can be acquired and used to purchase Nightwave Offerings during this mini-series.
Nightwave: Intermission Rank Rewards:
Nightwave: Intermission includes all of the Changes mentioned here, with the addition of a further change:
Get out there - Dreamers.

Ah, so up until Tennocon. Nice. Do we get 15 creds when we perstiege like last time?
Very good question!
There is no Prestige past Rank 15 in Intermission. Intermission is short, sweet, and simply an interim gap.
Series 2 will have Rank Prestige back.

What You Need To Do
The new DISRUPTION game mode is the playing field for Operation: HOSTILE MERGERS! You need to play through each mission difficulty for the associated Operation reward. Collect keys from fallen Amalgams to activate corresponding conduits, then protect the conduits from the Demolysts that will seek to destroy them.
1) Play the corresponding OPERATION nodes to earn the Rewards!
2) The final node is the endurance node - a single best run will earn you the best Rewards!
What You Need To Know
1) Minibosses lead the way - beware the DEMOLYSTS. Defeating a DEMOLYST is the key to progress - or failure. You have 4 conduits to defend each Round. If a Demolyst gets to the conduit and detonates, you lose that conduit. The pressure is on. DEMOLYSTS make themselves known with custom alarm sounds to help you find them, and an icon as they draw near.
2) Leaderboards do not include scores from members that joined after the Operation started.
There are 4 missions to play for Personal Rewards! Simply play the appropriate mission in your World State Window to acquire the goods!
Clan scores are determined by the Total (Sum) of each participating clan member's single best run! We will have Clan Leaderboards! These leaderboards do not include scores from members that joined after the Operation started.
Clan Trophy Tier Rewards:
Your Clan will be eligible for Operation trophies if you've got what it takes! Our intention is that if roughly 50% of a clan of a given tier is active and participating, they can earn a Gold trophy. Trophies are a cosmetic item that signify earning a specific milestone for a given operation. For Operation: Hostile Mergers, earning Gold will signify the milestone of rallying your clan or cooperating with other clans to earn points (i.e Solo clans bringing more firepower by working together). Not everyone will get Gold, and that's okay!
