Implanted neural-link for controlling augmentations. Grineer design.

—In-Game Description

Neural Sensors are a rare component that can be found on Jupiter. It is usually found in quantities of 1 - 4. Neural Sensors are most often found by defeating Alad V (Themisto) rather than by killing normal enemies. (Previously J3-Golem, but was replaced during The Hunt For Alad V event.)

It can also be found in the Dark Sector mission on Jupiter. As of Update 16.4, Neural Sensors can also drop from Raptor.

By purchasing this item you can directly exchange Platinum64‍ 10 for 1 Neural Sensors.

—In-Game Description

Neural Sensors be purchased directly from the market for Platinum64‍ 10. Alternatively, players can purchase their blueprints for Platinum64‍ 100, the blueprints are permanently reusable.

  • After Update 9.0, all rare items dropped much more commonly than normal, up to quantities of 6 per drop in some cases. The drop rates were fixed in Hotfix 9.1.3.
  • From Hotfix 9.8.2 until Hotfix 9.8.3, J3-Golem had a higher Neural Sensors drop rate than usual. Update 9.8.3 fixed this drop rate.
  • Outside of the helmet components and Orokin technology, the only other recipes requiring neural sensors are six melee weapons and the Grustrag Three Bolt Release.
  • Neural Sensors are made by Grineer, but they are only dropped from Corpus and Infested.

Gathering tips

Elara and Sinai, Jupiter are effective locations to gather Neural Sensors. Another place that is effective to farm is Themisto, Jupiter (assassination of Alad V).

Distilling Extractors are also a good way to farm these with little effort, though it should be noted that Neural Sensors are not guaranteed.


  • The Descriptions of Neural Sensors and Neurodes were swapped several times, with the second time completely reversing what the components clearly were. This was finally reverted in Hotfix 15.16.2 to properly fit their obvious designs.

    • sorry for English, so i will write in simple words. If you don't like fight with Bursas and any "new" mobs (Combas, Bursas and this shit w...
    • You need 1 pilfering for Sinai they way I described above, to wave 20.  I never stay longer than that.
  • There are no neural sensor drops on Alad v any more

    • Just get a philfering swarm hydroid. I would walk away from a defense with 6-12 of them going to round 15 each time.
    • Just ran it 40 times in a row and received shitload of fucking NOTHING  No formas for me anymore
