Mastery Info New

Mastery Ranking is a method of tracking a player's relative progress of how much of the game's content they have experienced. Mastery points are earned by ranking up companions/weapons and Archwings/Warframes through Affinity. Points can also be earned by successfully completing Junctions and nodes on the Sol system.

Higher Mastery Ranks unlock a number of benefits:

  • More weapons, Warframes and mods (especially Syndicate and Riven Mods)
  • Increases daily trading limit
  • Increases Extractor deployment limit
  • Raises maximum Void Trace capacity by 50 per rank
  • Raises the maximum daily bonus amount of Syndicate standing by ReputationLargeBlack‍1000 (Conclave is considered a Syndicate for the purposes of bonus standing); standing gained by doing syndicate missions or by turning-in medallions is unaffected by the daily cap.

Players can view their own Mastery Progress and Rank hovering the cursor over their Avatar on the top left corner of the UI; The player's and squad members' profiles and Mastery progress can also be viewed by clicking profile under their equipment tab; others in chat or communications by selecting their name and clicking "Profile".


In order to be promoted, a player must pass a different, usually harder, test for each cumulative rank they are trying to obtain. Mastery tests cannot be done in a Squad, and must be accessed in solo play. They also require the player to bring a full arsenal, regardless of any in-test weapon restrictions.

Note that there is a 24-hour lapse in between consecutive attempts, whether having failed and to retake the current test or having succeeded previously and to qualify for the next rank. It is recommended players go along the aisle to the right of Cephalon Simaris in any Relay to practice for the current test beforehand. Inability to complete a test due to lag or disconnection will be counted as a failed attempt.

Players are also able to redo previous tests along the Cephalon's aisle. Players will be able to access all the tests previously passed, as well as the one for the next level. (So if you are MR 15, you can practice all tests from MR 1-16.)

Rank 1-10

Warframe - Mastery Rank 1 Test01:15

Warframe - Mastery Rank 1 Test

Exterminate Test (Primary)
This test requires players to exterminate three waves of enemies with their primary weapon.

The player starts in the center of a room encircled by eight pillars. From here they must eliminate 3, 5 and 8 enemies within 1:00, 2:00 and 3:00 for each wave respectively.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 2 Test01:08

Warframe - Mastery Rank 2 Test

Exterminate Test (Secondary)
This test requires players to eliminate three waves of enemies with their secondary weapon.

The player starts in the center of a room encircled by eight pillars. From here they must eliminate 8, 12 and 16 enemies within 0:45, 1:00 and 1:15 for each wave respectively.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 3 Test01:45

Warframe - Mastery Rank 3 Test

Exterminate Test (Melee)
This test requires players to eliminate three waves of enemies with their melee weapon.

The player starts in the center of a room encircled by four pillars. From here they must eliminate 5, 7 and 9 enemies within 0:45, 1:00 and 1:15 for each wave respectively.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 4 Test02:01

Warframe - Mastery Rank 4 Test

Survival Test
This test requires players to endure an unlimited onslaught of Infested for a given period of time.

The player starts in the center of a room surrounded by several walls and platforms. From here they must survive for 1:30.

  • Leaving the center will relocate players to starting center instead.
  • Stealth skills can be used to complete the test without issue.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 5 Test01:11

Warframe - Mastery Rank 5 Test

Terminal Hacking Test
This test requires players to hack six terminals within a time limit of 1:45.

The player starts in the center encircled by terminals. From here they must hack three Grineer terminals and three Corpus terminals to pass the test.

  • Failed hacks do not automatically fail the test, so long as they are completed before time limit ends.
  • You may use Ciphers, despite the test's purpose.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 6 Test01:59

Warframe - Mastery Rank 6 Test

Target Tracking Test
This test requires players to track targets quickly and accurately.

The player starts the test standing on a brightly lit circular platform in a dark room encircled with metallic spheres. The player's camera will be turned toward the first target at the beginning of each round. Upon shooting the first target, lines will connect unlit spheres in succession before stopping at another target, this process will repeat itself until the test has ended.

  • Upon missing the white sphere, the original red sphere will be voided, reverting into a normal sphere. A new red sphere will appear elsewhere, thus it is better to take your time aiming rather than attempting to rush your aim.
  • Any accurate weapon with a large magazine size (to avoid wasted time reloading) will do nicely. Shotguns are also a viable option since the test counts one shot per round, not per pellets.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 7 Test02:34

Warframe - Mastery Rank 7 Test

Timed Exterminate Test
This test requires players to eliminate three waves of enemies within 1:00.

The player starts in the center of a white room with pillars circling the center. Grineer, Corpus, and Infested units will spawn in waves and must be dispatched of before time ends.


Warframe - Mastery Rank 8 Test00:47

Warframe - Mastery Rank 8 Test

Movement Test
This test requires players to jump across several platforms. Shooting the red orbs that appear spawns the next platform. Players have three tries to complete the test; each fall from a platform counts as a try.
  • There is no time limit.
  • Using advanced movement maneuvers (Bullet Jump, Double Jump, Wall Dash and Aim Glide) is necessary. If you have no experience with them, expect to have to try the test in practice mode (at Larunda Relay, Mercury, with Cephalon Simaris) several times. Note: bullet-jumping from a crouch rather than a slide makes this trial MUCH easier.
  • First red orb: Bullet-jump to the platform. Remember to look up, not at the platform, while doing so, to jump higher.
  • Second red orb: Double-jump to the first platform, then bullet-jump to the second.
  • Third red orb: Bullet-jump to the platform.
  • Fourth red orb: Bullet-jump towards the wall, then wall-jump up it to land on the platform at its top. Jump to the next platform.
  • Fifth red orb: Bullet-jump towards the nearest, lower platform, again looking up. Then at the apex of your jump, aim-glide towards the platform in order to be able to reach it. Once landed, bullet-jump up to the final platform marked with a bright arrow.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 9 Test02:02

Warframe - Mastery Rank 9 Test

Stealth Test

This test requires players to make use of cover and track enemy movements in order to assassinate targets without detection using melee weapons only.

Players start in a room equipped with only their melee weapon. They make their way through three stages with increasing numbers of enemies and increasingly complexity patrol routes. Successful elimination of all enemies in a stage will unlock the next.

Players are allowed three tries. Alerting an enemy counts as a try and will reset the stage. Falling off a platform does not count as a try. Also, there is no time limit.

  • Primary and secondary weapons as well as abilities are disabled.
  • Thrown melee weapons can be used to kill the targets from afar, allowing easier positioning to remain unseen.
  • Enemies can see far ahead of them in a cone-shape that expands with more distance. The sounds of running, jumping, swinging your weapon and falling does not alert them.
  • Enemies are also very weak; one melee hit kills them.
  • Increasing field of view in the options helps in glancing around corners.
  • First stage: Three enemies. Kill the immobile enemy whose back is turned. Wait until one of the other two is hidden behind the pillars and the other has his back turned; run up to and kill that one. Then jump to the top of a pillar; the enemy can't see you there and you can jump down and kill him from behind at your leisure.
  • Second stage: Four enemies, two at ground level and two on an elevated walkway. Run towards one of the pillars closest to you and jump up it; the lower two can't see you and you can jump down to kill them whenever it's convenient. Then move below the walkway, keeping the other two in view; they can't see you standing below them, so you can jump up behind them and kill them whenever they are far away from each other.
  • Third stage: Six enemies, three in the courtyard enclosed by pillars nearer to you, and three towards the back. First, kill the nearer three: As soon as they appear, run towards the closest pillar on either side and jump atop it. You're safe there; jump down to kill the three enemies one at a time whenever convenient. Then, kill the two in the far corners: Move towards them, hiding behind pillars, and kill them when their back is turned. Finally, watch the last one on his small platform: when his back is turned, jump carefully up behind him and kill him.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 10 Test01:06

Warframe - Mastery Rank 10 Test

Disappearing Platform Test
This test requires players to eliminate targets at range, while maneuvering on platforms in a 3x3 grid that will permanently disappear after a few seconds of standing on them.

The player will spawn in on a normal platform and the test will begin once you enter the grid area. You must kill all enemies spawning periodically atop five elevated platforms which line the far end of the grid. Once the player steps on a platform it will begin flashing increasing in speed until it disappears 8 seconds later.

Players have three chances to complete the test. Falling from the tileset counts as a try.

  • The number of targets is always 15, or, approximately, 1.6 per platform.
  • It is recommended to go on all the edge platforms then use the one in the very middle to make use of all platforms and provide additional time.
  • There are invisible walls preventing players from accessing the elevated platforms.
  • Using Titania's Razorwing form can make this test trivial.
  • Using a Continuous Hit-Scan weapon, such as the Quanta can make hitting targets easier.

Rank 11-20

Warframe - Mastery Rank 11 Test01:43

Warframe - Mastery Rank 11 Test

Time Trial Test
This test requires players to make their way through an obstacle course while shooting red orbs to increase the amount of time they have to finish the course. Each orb adds 3.5 seconds of time.
  • Fast moving frames such as Volt or Loki are very handy for this test as speed can significantly ease completion.
  • Using Zephyr's Tail Wind can make it possible to reach the end of the test without the need to go through the entire course. Especially the maze towards the end as she can go over the walls.
  • Be sure to bring hitscan weapons as well, as some orbs move. At one point, you will take a hovering platform slowly up, during which moving orbs will appear. It is critical to shoot these as the time it takes for you to reach the top may run your time out.
    • Using the Ignis with Firestorm is an easy way to hit all the orbs without much focus.
  • When attempting to complete the challenge, it is best to keep moving in the case that you miss an orb. Stopping to shoot the orb can result in you basically using the time you just gained.
  • Using Titania's Razorwing allows the player to fly through the test.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 12 Test01:16

Warframe - Mastery Rank 12 Test

Carousel Test
This test requires players to eliminate enemies while being aware of their surroundings.

Players start on a platform facing a carousel-like structure with two disks connected with a large pillar at their centers. Between the disks are a set of lasers which separate the quadrants of the disks and slowly rotate around the disks, essentially circling the "carousel".

The object of the test is to reach the carousel, eliminate 16 enemies spawning on the outer disk, all while avoiding the moving lasers.

  • The lasers move at about walking speed, and position can be judged by the set in front of the player.
  • The lasers heavily damage shields, but the player is permitted to use revives available to them if they die.
    • Rhino's Iron Skin can prevent this instant kill.
    • Ivara's Prowl with Infiltrate augment can be used to easily pass this test, as players will be able to walk through lasers unharmed and will still be able to kill enemies on outer ring.
    • Limbo's Rift Walk can be used to pass through the lasers unharmed.
  • A relatively accurate weapon is recommended, as the enemies are at mid to long range.
  • Sentinels with Deth Machine Rifle or Stinger can help with eliminating targets.
  • Ballistica, its burst fire producing a hit-scan "fan" when mobile, makes this test trivial.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 13 Test01:14

Warframe - Mastery Rank 13 Test

Advanced Disappearing Platform Test
This test requires players to eliminate enemies while remaining extremely mobile.

Players start facing a number of platforms surrounded by walls which can be run across. Once the player touches a platform, it begins to flash increasingly rapidly and will disappear after a few seconds. The platforms are arranged with one in each corner, and three stacked vertically in the center.

Players have three tries to eliminate all enemies on surrounding platforms. Each fall counts as a try and returns all previously exhausted platforms.

  • The number of targets is always 16, or, approximately, 2.3 per platform.
  • Plan the order by which you will use the platforms, to avoid getting stuck in a corner.
  • Sentinels can be of great help in this test, with proper Sentinel and Weapon choice.
  • Utilize Power Wall Climbing to stand on top of walls and shoot enemies easier above disappearing platforms.
  • Mesa can use her Peacemaker ability to take this test.
  • Titania can use her Razorwing ability to hover above the platforms, and ignore the mechanic. Since you only start with 50 energy in the test, a Medium Team Energy Restore is suggested.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 14 Test03:54

Warframe - Mastery Rank 14 Test

Advanced Exterminate Test
This test requires players to eliminate three waves of enemies of levels 15-20.

The player starts on the first level of a tower with multiple cover points and must eliminate targets until they are warped to the next level. There are three waves with Grineer, Infested, and Corpus units respectively.

  • Be careful of the gaps in the level.
  • Companions are disabled, so try to use a well-rounded loadout.
  • It appears that there is no time limit.
  • Enemy numbers: 10 Grineer, 20 Infested (including both crawlers and ospreys), 15 Corpus.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 15 Test02:46

Warframe - Mastery Rank 15 Test

Interception Test
This test requires players to capture and hold points in an Interception mission.
  • Some targets may not be standing on the same Interception point or are being blocked by consoles. Punch Through will be of some use mitigating this issue.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 16 Test03:49

Warframe - Mastery Rank 16 Test

Defense Test
This test requires players to defend a Cryopod for 3 waves.
  • Taking Frost and using Snow Globe will help you complete this test easily.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 17 Test02:10

Warframe - Mastery Rank 17 Test

Advanced Timed Exterminate Test
This test requires the player to kill 30 Infested targets within a time limit.
  • There will be a sphere that upon destruction will grant the player +7 seconds. It can only be harmed with melee.
    • Thrown melee weapons like Glaive, Kestrel and Halikar don't deal any damage to the spheres when thrown.
    • Spin attack of Telos Boltace can destroy the spheres. As the spheres have object-based health, line of sight is not required to damage them.
    • The charge attacks from Redeemer and Sarpa cannot harm the spheres.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 18 Test06:06

Warframe - Mastery Rank 18 Test

Advanced Defense Test
This test requires the player to defend a Cryopod for 5 waves.
  • Taking Frost and using Snow Globe will help you complete this test easily.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 19 Test03:05

Warframe - Mastery Rank 19 Test

Stealth Rescue Test
This test requires the player to destroy six orbs without being detected by the patrolling Grineer Lancers, and then escort a rescue target to the extraction point.
  • The player gets three attempts to complete the test without detection, after which the test will fail.
  • Primary and Secondary weapons are restricted, you only have access to your Melee weapon.
  • Abilities are disabled.
  • Ranged melee weapons like the Glaive or the Redeemer are ideal for taking out enemies from a safe distance.
    • Bug: After falling off the map the Redeemer sometimes becomes unusable, the regular melee attack nor the special (ranged) attack work. This also disables air glide. The only complete solution is to retake the trial since even failing the attempt in progress doesn't fix the issue. Workaround: assuming one managed to kill all the enemies beforehand, or at least the majority, it is possible to destroy an orb using "flying kick". One has to take a good running start, aim at the orb, run, bullet jump and press and hold crouch (CTRL ) while in the air until the orb is hit. This may not destroy it at first so it might take a few attempts. Moreover, the orb sometimes explodes spontaneously soon after hitting it.
  • Ivara's passive as well as mods such as Enemy Radar and Enemy Sense will allow you to see enemies on the minimap, making locating and avoiding them easier. Using Rush, Armored Agility, and Speed Drift will allow you to sneak up on enemies quicker, and Coaction Drift will increase the Enemy Radar further.
  • Rakta Dark Dagger will help you sneak up on the enemies, as this weapon reduces enemy visibility. You will need to ensure that it can damage the enemies quick enough or you will be detected.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 20 Test00:51

Warframe - Mastery Rank 20 Test

Archwing Time Trial Test
This test requires the player to fly between two platforms in Archwing mode before the timer runs out. There is a series of rings between the two platforms that grant additional time of 2 seconds when flown through. The player starts out with 10 seconds.
  • Naturally, take Itzal into this mastery test to grant you an upper edge on the challenge with its speed. Note however, that using Blink will NOT take you through the rings, and thus will NOT add additional time.
    • If you are not very well oriented with the maximum velocity of the archwing, consider taking slower archwing such as Odonata or Elytron to retain more control. You do not need to collect every ring, just make it to the platform at the end of the course.
  • Your warframe's Sprint Boost aura mod and a max or nearly max Hyperion Thrusters will make quick work of this mission. You should also sprint (with toggle on) and immediately go for afterburners.

Rank 21-30

Warframe - Mastery Rank 21 Test02:30

Warframe - Mastery Rank 21 Test

Timed Exterminate Test
This test requires the player to kill 35 enemies before the timer runs out. The player must destroy several orbs with their melee weapon to extend the timer, which spawn in random locations around the map.
  • The timer starts at 20 seconds, and each orb adds 15 seconds to the timer.
  • A total of 8 orbs will spawn, after which the player will be unable to further increase the remaining time.
  • Ranged melee weapons, such as the Glaive, the Redeemer, as well as Excalibur's Exalted Blade can be used to destroy the orbs from a distance.
  • The map is very vertical, and thus an agile loadout is preferred. Consider bringing a Bullet Jump mod to help travel between platforms.
  • Utilizing a Warframe with AoE abilities, Ash and Ember, will allow the player to eliminate enemies with minimal effort.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 22 Test11:43

Warframe - Mastery Rank 22 Test

This test consists of three rounds requiring the player to kill 12 / 18 / 24 Executioners (level 40). The player is given 3 respawns before the mission will fail. Executioners will spawn in pairs, a maximum of 6 simultaneously. The first round has a speed boost modifier, the second round has a health drain modifier (drains 100 health periodically until you have 3 health, killing enemies restores all health) and the third round has a scaling enemies modifier. Falling out of the map uses one respawn.
  • As gear use is not allowed, it is advisable to equip Energy Siphon, Streamline, Fleeting Expertise, or Zenurik's Energy Overflow passive.
  • Ash's Blade Storm can make quick work of the Executioners.
  • Using Naramon's Mind Spike on Executioners will cause them to attack and eventually kill one another.
  • Rapid Resilience is recommended to help counter enemy Cold procs.
  • Ammo is not replenished between rounds; bring ammo efficient weapons.
  • There are ammo, health and energy spawns scattered around the map; energy is marked on the map with a blue circle, ammo and health have no markers.
  • Loki trivialises this test. Put on Vitality to minimise accidental death in the second round due to health drain.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 23 Test03:37

Warframe - Mastery Rank 23 Test

Mobile Point Capture Test
This test requires the player to capture 6 mobile control points before the timer runs out by standing within a radius as they move along set paths. Various types of Grineer enemies will spawn throughout the map, attacking the player as they capture the points. Capture progress will quickly decay while the player is outside of the white radius. The point will gradually turn green and then stop moving upon reaching 100%.
  • The player has 5 minutes to capture all 6 control points, with no way to increase the remaining time.
  • The points can move very fast along certain paths, making it particularly difficult to aim at the surrounding enemies. Therefore, area-of-effect weapons and abilities are highly recommended.
  • Area-of-effect crowd control abilities can trivialize the test if modded for sufficient range and duration.
  • There are no sources of energy outside of enemy drops, so Energy Siphon and high Power Efficiency are recommended.
  • High duration Limbo or Loki is ideal as it will allow players to ignore incoming damage by utilizing Rift Walk or Invisibility, respectively.

Warframe - Mastery Rank 24 Test-000:00

Warframe - Mastery Rank 24 Test-0

Operator Test
This test requires the player to use their Operator to destroy an orb in the center of a small arena, while being attacked by Infested Brood Mothers. The player is given 3 respawns before the mission will fail.
  • The player has 3 minutes to destroy the orb, with no way to increase the remaining time.
  • The orb's size and hitbox shrinks as it takes more damage. It will also slowly regenerate over time if it stops taking damage.
  • There are two respawning energy orbs on opposite sides of the arena. Use these to your advantage.
  • Falling off the platform will not kill the Operator, but it is still recommended to be careful, as reappearing on the platform can trigger the heavy landing animation and leave them open to attack.
  • Void Dash is effective for evading Maggots, and will also remove any Maggots attached to the Operator. Dashing through enemies will replenish a little energy as well as damage them.
  • Brood Mothers can be killed, but more will spawn as the test progresses.

Gaining Mastery Points

Below are the ways a player can gain Mastery Points:

  • Bringing up the ranks of Weapons, Sentinel weapons and Archwing weapons earn 100 mastery points for each rank gained up to Rank 30 for a total of 3,000.
  • Bringing up the ranks of Warframes, Companions and Archwings earn 200 mastery points for each rank gained up to Rank 30 for a total of 6,000.
  • Clearing the main objective of a Mission node and extracting will grant an average of ~63 mastery points.
  • Victory against the opponent frame in a Junction grants 1,000 mastery points.

Take note that each individual equipment will only grant its mastery points once per rank per variantPolarization, selling a Rank 30 equipment and then purchasing & reusing it will NOT grant mastery points again, including in the event that a copy of an already max-ranked equipment is obtained and used. If an equipment below max rank is sold, then purchased and reused, only the ranks previously not gained will grant mastery points.

Variants of original weapons count as a different equipment for mastery ranking; Prime, Syndicates, Vandal, Wraith, Prisma and the Detron Mara.

Excess mastery points are not lost if a player reaches the amount required to advance a rank — these will automatically fill the next mastery bar, displayed only once the player has succeeded on the rank-up test.

Mastery Benefits

Beginning in Hotfix 18.13.2, the current Mastery Rank will also attribute to an equipment's starting mod cost capacity (i.e. a Mastery Rank of 10 will grant 10 points of starting mod capacity; double for Orokin catalyst & reactor installations). This only applies to unranked equipment acquired either from the Foundry, Market, as a reward from an event, or from being Polarized. Take note that to acquire more total capacity, the equipment would still have rank up until it has exceeded its applied base capacity, though this will not affect the capacity cap in any way; 30 base and 60 for Orokin catalyst & reactor-installed equipment, both not counting Warframe auras and melee stances.

Although a plethora of additional game content will be unlocked through attaining higher mastery ranks, most and their subjective prime & exclusive variants are already available at the beginning.

Other Benefits

  • The maximum enemy level in the Simulacrum will be calculated by the formula (5×MR)+ 30.
  • The number of Extractors you can deploy is dependent on your Mastery Rank and having Founders/Prime Access status. For every five mastery ranks gained up to ten, you can deploy one additional drone. Having Founder and Prime Access status will each grant you a drone in addition.
    • Mastery 0–4: 1 drone ( 2 for Prime or Founder, 3 for both)
    • Mastery 59: 2 drones ( 3 for Prime or Founder, 4 for both)
    • Mastery 10+: 3 drones ( 4 for Prime or Founder, 5 for both)
  • Starting from Rank 1, each rank-up grants the ability to earn an additional 1000 daily standing points with the player's chosen Syndicates.
  • Starting from Rank 2, the player unlocks the Trade System. Each rank-up will grant an additional limit to the player's number of trades per day.
  • Starting from Rank 2, each even rank attained will increase the cap on the amount of Loadout slots in the Arsenal.
  • Starting from Rank 2, each rank-up will increase the inventory cap of Void Traces by 50.
  • Attaining Rank 6 unlocks all Secondary Syndicate weapons.
  • Attaining Rank 8 unlocks all Market and clan Research weapons, along with all Syndicate Melee weapons, with the exception of Tenora requiring Rank 10.
  • Attaining Rank 8 unlocks all Relays.
  • Attaining Rank 12 unlocks all Primary Syndicate weapons.
  • Attaining Rank 14 unlocks all game content to date, with the exception of some Riven Mods.
  • The Mastery Sigil cosmetic changes every 3 ranks; as sigil color is defined by the player, having bronze, silver or gold does not affect the sigil in any way.

Indirect Mastery Locks

Bypassing Mastery Locks

  • There are bundles on the market which allows the player to obtain an equipment at an earlier rank:
View Bundle List


  • Certain weapons have a minimum Mastery Rank requirement. However this only applies to crafting from a blueprint; if the weapon can be placed into one's Arsenal (such as through Prime Access), it will bypass the lock. e.g. Broken-War cannot be crafted until Rank 3, but any player who completes The Second Dream will be awarded with a usable weapon regardless of their rank.
  • Stalker can appear during the test.[1]
  • Resources dropped during the test seem to be identical to those dropped in the Orokin Void.[2]
