Arena is a game mode in which players must defeat special enemies in modified Conclave maps until a certain number of opponents has been defeated. Tenno do not need to extract and the mission will only end with their victory or defeat.
Upon spawning Tenno's Companions and gears are automatically unequipped and are announced with a special modifier that will advantage the enemies for the duration of the mission.
