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.)

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

–In-Game Description

Beginning in Update 9 materials could be purchased directly from the market for Platinum64 Platinum.


  • After Update 9, 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 Update 9.1.3.
  • From Update 9.8.2 until Update 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 four melee weapons and the Grustrag Three Bolt Release.

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.


  • When viewed within the Market, the Neural Sensors description will note; "This bundle of 1 Neurode" as opposed to Neural sensor.
