Five Hidden Farming Spots in Warframe

There’s often so much to farm in Warframe that you don’t know where to begin. But after a while, you get bored of the same old spots. After all, how many times can you play Sanctuary Onslaught without getting bored? And I am sure most people are sick of playing the Index, right? With so much to farm, sometimes you need new, fresh, farming locations.

Here’s five such farming spots, which should hopefully liven up your Warframe sessions.

The Bit-of-Everything Farm – Profit Taker and Exploiter Orb

It somewhat makes sense that the massive robots, build by a cult that worships greed, drop a lot of loot. Both Orbs actually drop quite a few resources. Profit Taker drops a lot of credits (affected by both Chroma’s dragon pelt and credit boosters and the Fracture Under Control buff) and a lot of Torids. Exploiter Orb drops a vast amount of Orb Vallis resources, as well as a Torid that’s worth 12k standing. The fights themselves do require a bit of a gear check, but, with the right builds, can be done pretty quickly and easily. In both fights, the real issues are the random additional mobs that no one likes, not the bosses themselves.

While the Profit Taker fight is somewhat restricted (requiring max rank with Solaris United), Exploiter Orb is actually reasonably accessible, as long as you have done the odd Fracture mission on the Orb Vallis.

The Ignored Affinity Farm – Defense Fissures

Hydron and Helene are considered to be two of the best affinity farms. But they only really work if you do 20 waves. And not everyone is willing to stay for 20 waves, often dipping out early.

But with defense fissures, I’ve found people tend to stick around a little bit longer. Because you get a good reward at the end of the mission, people are willing to play for longer and use more relics. The small bonuses on endless fissure missions also help. Sure, you’re not going to get a lot from the little “fissure bonuses” but it’s more incentive to keep on going. Something that normal defense missions sorely lack.

The Ayatan Sculpture Farm – Infested Salvage

Fun fact: There are only two maps for Infested Salvage, and only one node, located on Eris. Another fun fact: because these two maps are always the same layout and very small, you can quickly smash all the canisters in said maps.

This actually means that, if you’re willing to quit and restart constantly, you can quickly smash all the canisters, run around and grab all the loot, then easily see if there is an Ayatan statue in the remains. It’s not efficient, but it’s simple, at least.

The Space Credit Farm – Railjack

Railjack originally wasn’t very rewarding. There was very little to gain apart from Railjack-specific loot. But after the big fix-up update in early 2020, Railjack actually became a great way to make some credits, maybe make some Platinum and earn some mastery. Even the low level missions give quite a lot of credits, about as much as a Dark Sector, but, with the right gear, completed just as fast, if not faster. Saturn and Veil Proxima nodes give even MORE credits, and the high level enemies can be stealth-killed for bonus affinity.

When it comes to mastery though, that’s a lot slower. Intrinsics take a long time to level up. But the first 7 levels in all 4 ranks are easy to access.

The Strange Orb Vallis Resource Farm – The Entrance of Fortuna

Okay, this one is kinda weird and very niche. But if you’re a newer player in need of lots of Fortuna resources, then there’s a weird, easy way to get stuff. To both the left and right of the entrance to Fortuna, there are metal containers that not only drop a lot of resources, but respawn on the regular. As in, they respawn about once a minute, provided you run about 250m away from them.

If you’re feeling really lazy, then go check them out. And if not? Well, those crates also give tons of energy, so it’s a good way to start your mission.


At the end of the day, these farming locations aren’t the fastest, but they are at least a change of scene from the same old boring farm…
