–In-Game Description

Rubedo is an uncommon component that can be found on Phobos, Earth, Pluto, Europa and Sedna regions. It is usually found in quantities of 15 to 25, and is a key ingredient in the production of Warframe Chassis and Helmets as well as many weapons. Although Rubedo is an uncommon resource, most recipes that use it require extremely large amounts, making it a highly farmed resource.

Gathering Tips

These are based on opinions and may not be 100% true. These should be viewed as advice for finding the materials until better facts are proven.

  • Earth Major looting locations include Oro, Pacific, Eurasia and Gaia. It drops in the normal quantities. The infested maps seem to be best for farming as the vast amount of enemies thrown at you can be killed and farmed for Rubedo along with the chests and lockers around the map.
  • Note: The most productive way to farm rubedo would be found on Pacific. Go solo or with a team mate and slowly check every locker, break every storage container, and make a lot of noise to bring the infested to you. This should gather around 90+ rubedo each game. (Tested 3 times with successful results)
    • Unsure if above author is posting before or after update 8. As of June 7 was tested 4 runs receiving between 16 and 60 rubedo per run. (If unlucky, good runs can net you over 100 rubedo if the enemies decide to drop some as of 6/21/13).
    • Update 9.7.1 - (09/01/13) 6 runs were conducted in Oro will at least 230 kills per run and all possible lockers looted, the results were 96, 136, 177, 64, 194, 226 rubedo
  • The Europa map, Valefor, drops a high amount of Rubedo but requires a higher level than Earth maps. You usually receive 150-200 rubedo per run. Tested 10 times with successful results, and only one run at 126 rubedo. (Suggestion: Ask others to mark rubedo)
  • On Europa, the Defense mission, Eligor, also has large amounts of Rubedo. A high level is required though.
  • The most productive way of farming Rubedo and Alloy Plate--regarded as two of the most farm-intensive resources--is in Sedna with a full party in the mobile defense mission Kappa. Hordes of enemies appear during a 4 player run--bringing with them many materials/mods and XP earnings. It is recommended to include a Nyx in your team and/or frames with AOE abilities to speed up the process. Another good team build is with a Frost and Banshee. Have Frost drop a Snow Globe around the Data Terminal to prevent enemy fire and to slow down any Grineer and Rollers that march up to the Terminal. Banshee with maxed Focus and Reach mods can spam Sound Quake, effectively clearing out whole rooms, as energy is not really a problem with the large amounts of drops that occur.
  • Now with the new update of the pre 7.10 8 saw a huge increase in quantities of Rubedo in Europa with many missions having 2 or more drops in quantities of 10 to 50 units.
  • Mission Namaah on europa drops approx. 121 rubedo per game and is great place to farm both Nova blueprints and rubedo.
  • The Phobos map Kepler, Drops high quantities of Rubedo and Alloy Plate.
  • Phobos, ever since it was introduced in Update 9.5, is the best place to farm Rubedo


  • Since Update 7.9, resource drops on Europa missions seem to have a near 100% chance of being Rubedo. This may be a bug.
  • Since Update 9, Rubedo has been switched with control mods on the loot table making rubedo drops very rare. A fix is on the way according to developers. (Fixed in Hotfix 9.1.4)


  • Rubedo is a Latin word for "redness" and was used in alchemy to define the fourth and final stage in the Magnum Opus, the process by which one creates a philosophers' stone.
  • Unrefined Rubedo is physically similar to Salt.
