The Index Preview Banner

The Index is a Corpus Arena-style mission type hosted by Nef Anyo on Neptune, in which Tenno and elite Corpus units fight to earn credits and other prizes.

The credits reward for winning (meeting point target and having more points than the enemy team) an index run are not affected by the daily first win double credits bonus.They are however, affected by a credit booster. The credit booster only doubles your profit, not both your investment and your profit. For example: Successfully completing a medium index run with a credit booster will result in you having 270,000 more credits at the end. (2 * 135,000)

Investment Edit

Before entering the Index, the player initiating the mission must select an Investment amount in Credits that each squad member must pay in order to enter. There are three different investments:

Risk Wager Profit Point Target
Low Credits6445,000 Credits6475,000 25 Points
Medium Credits6460,000 Credits64135,000 50 Points
High Credits6475,000 Credits64200,000 100 Points

Each player in the squad will be asked to invest the same amount of credits, and in public matches, players will be matched with others participating in the same investment tier.

This Investment will determine the Point Target the team has, which is a designated amount of Index points that the team must cumulatively deposit and score in the match. If the team achieves the Point Target during the match, their invested Credits will be returned and they will additionally receive the listed profit. The credit rewards are not split between players. Each player receives the full amount. However, if the team wins the match but doesn't achieve their Point Target, then their investment is only reimbursed without interest, and if the team loses the match then each player will lose their investment completely.

MechanicsEdit

The goal of the Index is to earn Index score for the team through the collection of Index Points, which are dropped by participants killed in battle. Represented as green, glowing diamonds, Index Points can be collected by walking over them, and then deposited to a designated bank location in order to earn the actual Index score. Every point deposited will add 10 more seconds to the timer, prolonging the match duration. When an enemy scores, the timer will go down by 10 seconds.

Financial Stress: A player can hold multiple Index Points at once, and will gain bonus points for depositing large amounts at once (e.g. depositing 5 Index Points at once will grant +2 bonus points, for a total of 7 points added). Bonus points will not affect the duration of the timer. However, holding large numbers of Index Points will reduce the player's health and shields, and constantly drain energy. All of these effects are proportional to the number of Index Points held, and is delivered through the Financial Stress debuff displayed by the player's HUD to the upper right.

The player's team will win if they score more Index Points than the opposing team before time runs out. If by the end of the match the players happen to tie, the tie goes to Nef Anyo.

Specter Fill-InsEdit

The Index must be played with 4 players, however randomized Warframe Specters will assist the player and fill in unused spots on the team, such as a Mag or Frost, with a small assortment of weapons and even different color customizations. Their AI is similar to the advanced AI of the Investors, such as using abilities strategically and using parkour maneuvers. They will also try to protect the Specter or Player with the most points, following them loosely to try to give them some cover.

Warframe Specters will scale, however they can be more easily defeated than the player can in most cases, potentially giving Investors an easy way to obtain points.

Limitations Edit

Energy and Health orbs are only available at preset dispenser locations throughout the arena, spawning periodically. Players are unable to use Companions and Sentinels during the match, and they are also unable to use Gear items.

The BrokersEdit

Brokers are the elite Corpus units that participate in the Index to oppose the Tenno. These Brokers are divided into 4 different groups, with each group being selected at random as the opponents for a particular match.

John Prodman Edit

John Prodman is a legendary Corpus Prod Crewman that can be encountered in The Index after one hour has passed at any risk level. Known as Anyo Corp's "Employee of the Month", he drops an autographed poster when defeated, which can be placed in the Orbiter as a decoration once the mission is successfully completed.

RewardsEdit

Aside from the bonus Credits earned from completing an Index match, at the end of match special Index Mods will be rewarded. Like the Executioner Mods introduced with Rathuum, these mods are special augments for certain weapons:

Patch HistoryEdit

Update 20.0
  • All of the Index mission options available on The Index node on Neptune have been removed, except for the Endurance mode. This node is optional, and is not required to complete Neptune. Since Endurance modes play out with no explicit end, we've made all Index enemies drop all Index exclusive mods so that you can remain in the same Endurance mission without missing out on drops that the enemies don't spawn.

Update 19.6.0

  • Fixed performance issues.

Hotfix 19.5.6.1

  • Fixed a rare progression stopping bug in The Index if players are losing but then score enough to win just before the round ends.

Hotfix 19.5.6

  • Fixed absent transmissions causing a progression stopping bug.

Hotfix 19.5.5

  • Change: The Index missions are no longer required as part of Neptune's completion.
  • Fix: Fixed not being able to fully unlock Neptune due to The Index.

Hotfix 19.5.3

  • Fixed points scored in the last round not counting towards your Wager score.

Update 19.5

  • The Index was partially revamped, 2 new mods and a new team added.
