Implanted neural-link for controlling augmentations. Grineer design.

—In-Game Description

Neural Sensors are a rare component that can be found primarily on Jupiter and the Kuva Fortress. It is usually found in quantities of 1-4. 

Alad V has a higher chance of dropping Neural Sensors compared to enemies, containers, and lockers. As of Update 16.4 The Raptors also have a chance of dropping Neural Sensors, but this does not apply to the rest of Europa.

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, or doing Raid The Law of Retribution Nightmare which the permanent blueprint also drop, blueprint are permanent and 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 seven melee weapons, the Stradavar, the Grustrag Three Bolt Release and the avionics component of the Mantis landing craft.

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.

    • I just got 10 from jupiter dark sector with necros after 20 waves. i usually go there for it.
    • I always do IO on Jupiter. Usually get around 4-7 Neural sensors in 10 Waves. Goes along well with Meso Relic farming so I'm good. Just t...
