Junctions are solo missions that allow players to progress through the Star Chart.

MechanicsEdit

Junctions consists of a small, circular room, with a specter kneeling in the center. Each Junction is accompanied by a series of specific tasks. Completing these tasks is required to challenge a Junction's specter for control of the connected Solar Rail, which unlocks the next celestial body.

In addition to star chart progression, completing a Junction grants 1,000 Mastery and several miscellaneous rewards (typically weapon blueprints and/or quests). Junction rewards can only be claimed once.

NotesEdit

  • Junctions can be used as shortcuts between celestial bodies when navigating the star chart.
  • Players may enter the junction even if they have not fulfilled the tasks. They will, however, be barred from fighting the specter of the Junction, thus unable to progress through the rail.
    • The list of tasks and rewards will be shown in the rail, in front of the area the player is barred from entering into. This is the same list as the one shown on the star chart.
    • Exiting a Junction will not be considered a mission failure.
    • Specters can be scanned even if the player is prevented from attacking them.
  • Certain paths between celestial destinations do not have Junctions, and can be traversed as soon as the nodes at either end are unlocked. They are:
    • All the paths leading to the Void.
    • The path leading from Earth to Lua.
  • Specters reward approximately 2,000 affinity when killed.
  • The Neptune Junction's requirements will count the use of any exalted melee weapon as a normal melee weapon.
    • Also, it will not count Archwing primary weapons against the requirement. You can safely take an Archwing primary into a submersible mission while still counting as "melee only".

TriviaEdit

  • Each specter is based on the Warframe whose components drop from the next location's boss, with the exception of Volt on Mercury.
  • Players retained any star chart progress made prior to Update: Specters of the Rail. However, Junctions themselves still needed to be completed to gain their rewards. Furthermore, Junction tasks only counted progress made after the update, with the exception of completed quests.
  • Junctions were inspired by Hyper Light Drifter.[2]

BugsEdit

  • The large window in the Junctions is not solid, allowing players to knock the Specter out into space with the appropriate abilities and weapons.
  • The Sedna Junction may not allow the player to enter even when all four requirements have been met or the junction has already been completed.
  • The Europa Junction states that the player must craft a Warframe Specter. This is a visual bug, and the player must make a vapor specter
