Tactical Alerts are special Alert missions that feature unique challenges and enemies compared to traditional Alert missions. While Tactical Alerts appear for a limited time like normal alerts, they occupy their own unique mission node within a planet, and disappear only once their designated duration has expired, making them more similar to Events. They were first introduced in Update 14.2.4.

MechanicsEdit

TacticalAlert

Example of an active Tactical Alert.

Unlike traditional Alert missions, Tactical Alerts can contain non-standard enemy compositions such as large numbers of advanced units or even multiple instances of boss units that make the opposition deadlier than usual. Additionally, Tactical Alerts can impose restrictions that limits a player's loadout; many feature so-called "Void Sensors" that places a maximum Conclave point limit that restricts players on the type of weapons and equipment they can carry, which forces the player to use underpowered equipment or incomplete loadouts. Other Tactical Alerts may have other types of restrictions, like being able to use only a specific weapon.

Tactical Alerts also do not disappear after a single run; instead, each successful run of a Tactical Alert will grant points that accumulate with each subsequent run. The Tactical Alert is completed after a certain amount of points are acquired, which will then grant players the stated reward.

Additionally, after completion players have the option of running a Stratos Challenge, which is a more difficult version of the completed Tactical Alert with more powerful enemies and even lower Conclave point limits. Completing the Stratos Challenge has similar mechanics to the above, and will grant a Stratos Emblem (also known as a Tactical Specialist Emblem) upon the first completion, with subsequent completions changing the rank of the badge each time a challenge is completed.

Mechanics
  • Multiple Hyena NG units are present during the mission.
Intro

Tenno,

Frohd Bek continues to pursue his advanced Hyena program. We have just learned that a massive order of the elemental Fire Hyena model has just finished production. You must enter this facility and destroy these machines before they can be sent into the front lines.

Take note, this is not another straightforward extermination. This facility is equipped with a new kind of sensor, capable of detecting large signatures of void energy generated by more advanced Warframes. Any signs of a threat, the entire facility will be evacuated. To escape detection equip low powered frames and weapons.

I am counting on you Tenno.

- The Lotus

Success

Well done Tenno,

The Corpus will not easily recover from this loss. The cost of these machines should set them back significantly. However, I fear we may have infuriated Frohd Bek. This will have unforeseen consequences in the future.

Excavation
Mechanics

Activating an Excavator will spawn a swarm of unique red Desert Skates around the Excavator. These Desert Skates feature increased durability and attack power, and are hostile to everyone in the area.

Intro

Tenno,

Our operatives have detected an unusually rich Cryotic deposit in a remote region of the Phobos desert. Curiously, intelligence reveals that the Grineer base at this location is patrolled entirely by airborne Hellion troops rather than standard ground infantry. The Cryotic may have had unforeseen consequences on local wildlife. Proceed with caution.

Note that this will not be a standard excavation mission. as we encountered before, this base is equipped with sensors capable of detecting large signatures of Void energy generated by more advanced Warframes and weapons. With this radar in place, and the entire Grineer battalion capable of flight, their forces would overwhelm you in a matter of moments. Slip in under the radar Tenno, and recover that Cryotic... at any cost.

- The Lotus

Success

Well done Tenno, you have kept this vital resource out of the hands of the enemy. With most of our resources funneled into Project Archwing, I cannot offer you much for your service. Hopefully this will help in some way. -Baro Ki'Teer

Capture
Mechanics
  • Each mission spawns two Corpus Targets that must be captured. For each target captured the player will get one point. If only one target is captured, the mission will fail while still awarding one point.
  • The Corpus Target has an energy drain aura that quickly drains energy from Warframes within 80m. This target is also protected by three or more Shield Osprey Eximus that provide constant shield protection until they are destroyed. Target and Eximus spawn at high levels--nearly double that of other enemies on map. These Ospreys are not affected by Mind Control or Chaos, and as long as they are linked with the target, the target cannot be damaged in any way.
  • This alert features an unusually high number of Tech and Sniper Crewman units, along with a high chance of Eximus variants spawning.
Intro

Tenno,

The locations of numerous high-profile Corpus war criminals have been revealed in the vicinity of Europa. Regrettably, this information has come at a high price; our operatives were discovered at the conclusion of their infiltration mission and executed by the enemy. These agents are now expecting an attack and have recruited mercenary snipers to protect them. You must arrive at their location undetected and bring these criminals to justice. Don't let any of them escape.

Good luck,

- The Lotus

Success

Well done Tenno. You have brought an end to the treachery of many Corpus war criminals. The sacrifices made by our scouts have not been in vain. Take this as a reward for your assistance today, hopefully this will help in some way.

Intro

Tenno,

The Grineer command have been impressed with the carnage your Kubrows have unleashed on the battlefield. Desiring the same power for themselves, they have ordered their Drahk Masters to earth to capture feral Kubrows and crossbreed them with their Drahk beasts. Do not let them complete their mission. Go to Earth and eliminate the Drahk Masters.

Intro

Tenno,

You have learned well, Tenno. Through countless assaults into enemy space, you have wreaked havoc among our foes. But our enemy has learned as much about us as we have about them. They are adapting. Their newest trick? Speed. Using lightweight aura mods, specialized Grineer can now match your speed and cover large distances with ease. I am telling you this because you will encounter these soldiers on your next mission. There is an emergency broadcast that I need intercepted immediately. The Grineer will try and stop you. You will show them that it takes more than speed to defeat the Tenno.

Mechanics
  • This Tactical Alert restricts the players to using Heavy Blade weapons (Scindo, Scindo Prime, Galatine and Gram) only.
  • Eximus spawns are limited to Arson, Arctic and Leech.
  • This is the first Tactical Alert to feature an Escalation phase, which is a third challenge with incredibly high-level enemies on top of the Conclave limits and weapon restrictions. Enemies on the Phoenix Intercept Escalation Phase have a level range of 100 - 150.
  • Unlike normal Interception missions, this alert requires players to complete a set number of rounds (called "waves" in the mission UI) before they can extract. The first phase and the Escalation phase require 5 rounds to be completed, while the second phase requires eight rounds.
Intro

Tenno,

We have received the coordinates of a factory developing artificial genomes for Tyl Regor. Our intel suggests that these genomes can restore broken links in the Grineer DNA sequence, allowing them to produce stronger clones in great quantities.

This cannot be allowed to happen. Assault his forces at the factory, and intercept any intel that can tell us more about his experiments.

- The Lotus

Mechanics
  • After depositing the Datamass into the designated console and being told to extract, large numbers of Grineer Manics will spawn throughout the entire level. As there is a limited number on the map, the same objective indicator as on Exterminate missions will appear, although said objective is completely optional.
    • The number of Manics depends on how many players are in the squad: For 1 player - 15 Manics, 2 players - 30 Manics, 3 players - 50 Manics, 4 players - 75 Manics.
  • The third iteration, i.e. the Stratos Challenge, will reduce the maximum energy of all player's Warframes to 50.
  • Missions have a random chance to feature half-gravity similar to those found in Nightmare Mode.
Intro

Tenno,

My contact has informed me of a convoy of abandoned merchant vessels drifting in dead space. Seems like such a waste of good product to just leave it floating there when it could be on my shelves instead.

Reactivate the navigation consoles, and I can reroute them to a... secure location. After I take down the inventory of each ship, we can share the dividends, minus my usual finder’s fee of course.

- Darvo

Success

Tenno,

I see you made it out in one piece! That is good to hear. After a cursory review of the ship's inventory I think I may have found something that will pique your interest. Please, take this for all the work you did.

- Darvo

  • Scoring is based upon number of Feral Kubrow killed, with the kills of the previous mission stacking to contribute to the total event score.
Intro

Tenno,

Our spies report that a huge cache of Strun Wraith shotguns has been uncovered on Earth. The Grineer have tried to sieze the guns but were pushed back by a vicious colony of feral kubrow.

Go to Earth and secure the weapons before the Grineer can come back with a larger force.

Resistance from the colony will be fierce, so I have sent you a Kubrow Starter Kit. Nurture this creature, as a Tenno can always use a companion to watch their back.

  • Only melee weapons can be brought into the Capture missions of this alert. The final Crossfire endurance mission has no weapon limitation.
    • While named as a Crossfire mission, the Corpus on the map are allied to the Tenno, technically making it an Invasion.

  • Missions feature an unusually large number of Eximus units. Especially shown on Venus.
  • All MOA spawn cabinets will spawn Railgun MOAs instead of the usual Shockwave MOA and have a 100% chance to spawn them.
Intro

Tenno,

Surely you've heard of the Black Seed? These so-called Corpus who are uninterested in profit and who solely apply themselves to undermining the will of the Board? These fanatics have raided Alad V's Mutalist labs, stealing never before released Juggernaut spores with the intention of unleashing them on my facilities.

Will you help me stop the spread of the new Infested? We will provide the location of the Black Seed Operatives to you.

Oh, and one more thing. To prevent the accidental spread of Juggernaut Spores, you must only use melee weapons.

Good Luck,

- Frohd Bek

Intro

Tenno,

Every so often, mutations in the Grineer genetic code produce individuals who refuse to fall in line with their superiors. Most are destroyed but some escape. One such individual has just contacted us from a training facility for a new type of fighter. Unfortunately, his message was intercepted and this defector is now fighting for his life. Defend this fighter until we can muster a proper extraction.

Go now Tenno, anyone strong enough to turn their back on the Grineer is worth saving.

- The Lotus

Success

On first completion:
Tenno,

Thanks to you, the defector is being debriefed and is providing us with important information about Grineer unit training.

He has led us to an accomplice who is trying to escape a secondary facility. I need you to bring this defector to me as well.

Please take this reward for your efforts.

On completing the Endurance challenge:
Tenno,

Mechanics
  • The first mission of the alert is a Crossfire mission on Mars with Corpus and Grineer already engaged in battle, occasionally fielding advanced units like Bailiffs and Isolator Bursas. The actual objective however is to undertake a Spy mission to retrieve data from a Data Vault. Unlike with traditional Spy missions, this mission only has a single Data Vault found on the Grineer Galleon side. Due to this, failing to retrieve the data from said vault will result in mission failure.
  • The second mission is another Crossfire mission, this time on Ceres, where players are tasked with a Rescue mission to recover a prisoner. However, due to the high alert conditions of both Corpus and Grineer present on the map the prisoner execution sequence will immediately start upon players entering the prison complex, making it imperative that players find the hostage as soon as possible. The hostage, who turns out to be Maroo, must then be escorted back to extraction to complete the mission.
  • The final Endurance mission is a Crossfire Exterminate mission where players are tasked with eliminating all Grineer on the map. All of the Grineer present though are special Nightwatch units, which are tougher and utilize more advanced weaponry like the Karak Wraith.
  • All missions give a bonus end-of-mission reward upon completion, which can include a single mod from the following:
Intro

Tenno,

Tensions between the Grineer and Corpus have flared unexpectedly and the area around Mars has become a hot zone. In the midst of all this I have intercepted this bizarre distress signal:

"Help. Need extraction. Will trade for treasure."

The signal has since gone dark but I suspect whoever sent it knows more about what is going on here. Find the source of the signal.

- The Lotus

Success

Completing the first mission:
Tenno,

I decoded the following message from the data you found:

"The interloper has been arrested but refuses to reveal the location of the missing blueprints. Should I apply the pain sequence? - Gorth, Nightwatch Corps"

It appears, this prisoner does not have much time. You must bring them to me.

-The Lotus

Completing the second mission:
Thanks for the assist, Tin Suit.

Okay, I admit, I started the whole thing. Got the Corpus thinking the Grineer were ripping them off. The Corpus accuse Grineer and the next thing you know everything's bullets, blood and laser cannons. And while they're busy shooting each other I'm free to take whatever I want.

Great plan right? That was, until the Nightwatch Corps showed up. Next thing I know, I'm in lockup and nobody's taking bribes. That is, until you lot came along.

So look, I've already sent you a little something for your trouble, but if you could find it within your heart to send those Nightwatch fellas packin', then maybe I got a little something else for you too. Deal?

Jack O'Naut Orokin Catalyst Blueprint Assassination
Mechanics
  • This alert features the Halloween Nightmare Mode, which has the following restrictions:
    • Players will be unable to use their weapons, Companions, or Warframe powers.
    • All players start with only a set amount of Health and Shields regardless of the selected Warframe: The first mission gives players only 100 Health and 100 Shields, while the second Endurance mission gives only 50 Health and Shields. Players are also unable to recover or receive Energy.
    • Attacks are limited to melee using the Warframe's hands and feet with Sparring-type movesets, and damage dealt by Maneuvers like Bullet Jump. While the players's melee attacks can benefit from the Melee Combo Counter, players are unable to use Channeling.
    • Weapon and Warframe Mods are disabled during the alert. The only exceptions are Auras and Exilus mods, whose effects remain active.
    • Players will be unable to access their Gear menu during the mission. Hotkeys will also be disabled, though Ciphers can still be used from inside the hacking screen.
  • Both the first mission and the second Endurance mission is an Assassination mission (although labelled Sabotage) where players must head to a designated location on the map while surviving or avoiding Infested. At a certain point, players must unlock a door with two receptacles on it by finding Power Cells on the tileset where said door is located, with said Power Cells being given by hacking two control consoles. Bringing the Power Cells to the receptacles will open the locked door.
    • The objective location houses a large Jack O' Lantern, which will spawn a Jack O'Naut, -an Infested Juggernaut that has a Jack O' Lantern for a head- which players must kill. As players are unable to use weapons or powers, the only way to defeat the Jack O'Naut is by destroying tall explosive containers consisting of three stacked Jack O' Lanterns, which will release a Fire Blast around the immediate area that can damage the Jack O'Naut. Once killed, players can immediately head to extraction.
      • Luring the Jack O'Naut into charging into explosive barrels is risky but does good damage.
  • The second Endurance mission also has the side objective of finding three Resource Caches, which provide additional special rewards including Aura and Nightmare Mods.
  • Both alert missions take place on Earth, on a special version of the Grineer Forest tileset that features thick, orange fog that limits player vision.

Frohd Bek continues to pursue his advanced Hyena program. We have just learned that a massive order of the elemental Fire Hyena model has just finished production. You must enter this facility and destroy these machines before they can be sent into the front lines.

Take note, this is not another straightforward extermination. This facility is equipped with a new kind of sensor, capable of detecting large signatures of void energy generated by more advanced Warframes. Any signs of a threat, the entire facility will be evacuated. To escape detection equip low powered frames and weapons.

I am counting on you Tenno.

Intro

A frosty skirmish of snowballs and minty melee mayhem.

Success

Operator, alert!

Ordis awoke from deep-diagnostic scans to find this item had been placed beside the central-heating exhaust vent. Surrounding it was a pile of melting snowballs and note that reads;

"Merry Solstice to all, and to all a good fight."

The notion that some shady individual is slinking through the exhaust system while we rest disturbs Ordis immensely. Shall I devise a way to vaporize this mysterious gifter should they return?

TriviaEdit

  • The Avalanche Offensive of Update 14.2 functioned very similarly to Tactical Alerts, likely because it was an early test of their implementation.
  • A Tactical Recall weekend mini-event was held from December 10, 2015, to December 14, 2015, in which the Christmas 2014 Tactical Alerts Pack Mentality, Toxic Terrors, Fleet Footed, and Fight or Flight, were reintroduced as 24-hour alerts with different rewards from their original appearances.
