Introduction:
Welcome to Warframe, a free-to-play online shooter/action game that feels like a perfect mix of Diablo and Mass Effect. You play as a Tenno, which is basically a space ninja, and complete a ton of missions on a bunch of different worlds to acquire more and more gear, blueprints, and money. Although the game is free-to-play, there is a platinum system wherein you can trade real-world money for special in-game credits. However, you can obtain the full completion without having to spend a single dime, but be prepared for more grinding and waiting. If you do decide to spend some money for platinum, I would suggest waiting until it is on sale through the Xbox Store or buying a Prime Access pack in-game, which gives you a much better Platinum-per-Dollar ratio than buying from the Xbox Store. That aside, this game is an absolute blast, and if you have a couple of friends willing to play, even more fun. Be patient through the beginning; I started this game when it launched and played maybe 1 hour before I put it down for a few months, but after I got through the intro levels and started really getting into the game, I haven’t been able to put it down. 

A few hints and tips: The in-game store is located to the right of the galaxy map. Use it to purchase blueprints for weapons and gear that you need. The Forge is located behind that, down the ramp to the right. Across from that is your Mod station. Sell duplicates (you can easily tell if you have extras by looking at the top left corner of a card) if you need the Credits. Another way to earn Credits: hit Start, go to Equipment, then to Inventory. Scroll through the tabs and sell duplicate Blueprints, Sigils that you won’t use, or weapons that you have already completed and no longer intend to use. This will make your Tenno life easier. Also, when you are at the galaxy map, hit RT and then RB to view your active quests. Selecting a mission from this page will take you straight to the corresponding planetary node (if unlocked). While there are no achievements related to completing quests, they can yield some awesome stuff (like the Archwing). The other tabs in this menu are for limited-time events that can reward you with epic gear. Definitely take a look at it. Lastly, when you are upgrading weapons, and apply a Mod to it, hit X on the Mod card to boost its stats. This will bring you to the Mod station. Select which card you want to upgrade (for example, “Vitality” under Warframe), go to the top left and select Fusion, then pick which card/s you want to fuse it with (best ones: Fusion Cores). Once the bar under the card reaches next level, hit X to spend Credits to apply the Fusion. It's confusing at first, but you’ll get the hang of it. 

Now, here is a brief introduction to the ranking system. Your Warframe has a max rank of 30, but you also have a mastery level. When you are in the start menu, hit  to look at your character. There is a green bar under your name which indicates how close you are to your next Mastery level. Once you’ve filled the bar (which increases by leveling up equipment), there will be a new option underneath your name to the effect of “Rank up.” Complete the mission (they are super easy) and then keep leveling up your mastery to unlock tougher nightmare missions which yield better rewards and some achievements. Whew, okay. I hope this helped explain some of the finer points of the game which can be overlooked.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
Overall, the original 1000 on this game is quite easy to complete, and only requires a lot of hours played. The main things to focus on are leveling up Primary Weapons, Sidearms, Melee Weapons, and Sentinels. You will want to be constantly buying and forging weapon blueprints so that when you hit rank 30 with something, you can switch out and start leveling a new weapon. Make sure to sell Mods or Equipment that you are not using so that you can get some extra money, and be on constant lookout through the worlds for easy defense missions that yield a ton of Credits. You will need more Credits and materials than anything in this game. Blueprints cost a decent amount of Credits, but then you have to gather the required materials from the correct Planet, spend a lot of Credits to have it forged, and then wait anywhere from 6-48 hours for the forging process to complete. This will be where most of your efforts are focused – Credit farming, blueprint buying, and weapon forging. As you will discover, simply playing the game will rank up everything you have equipped. In other words, if you only use your primary weapon, your secondary weapon, melee weapon, Sentinel, and Sentinel weapon will all receive XP and rank up as well, which is really nice when you get stuck having to Rank a weapon type that you are not fond of. 

***Also, for the Weapon Mastery achievements, although some weapon types might not have very many blueprints available for purchase, there is a very good chance that along your Warframe journey you will find or be rewarded blueprints for those weapon types. Don’t be discouraged. If you cannot find any, you can sell gear that you own for Platinum. Hit  in the menu, which brings up the chat. Use  to get to the Trading tab, where you can type “WTS (Want To Sell) X, Y, or Z.” Typically, within seconds, someone will message you. Reply to them with “Offer,” to which they will reply an amount of Platinum. If you agree, head to a Dojo where you can set up a trade. This will be especially useful for the Dagger Mastery, as there are only two blueprints available for purchase with Credits.

Multiplayer:
The only “true” MP achievements in Warframe come from reviving allies during missions. If you only play by yourself, you will not be able to get this, so I suggest setting matchmaking to public so you can occasionally find other people to run missions with. 

Mop-Up:
Once you get the hang of things, this game is a breeze. After the first couple of planets, you will have an understanding of what weapons you need to keep leveling. Just keep in mind that credits will go a long way, so always save up (especially for Sentinel blueprints, which cost 100,000). Also, you can check your achievement progress by hitting start,  to your character, and then view profile. Hit  three times to view the achievements tab.

DLC: Update 14.5: Operation Cryotic Front

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
This DLC contains a bunch of random achievements, all of which are fairly straightforward and easy to complete. The only one that might take time is "Mercenary," for which you will need to complete a mission 3-5 times to qualify for Battle Pay, then wait until the event is over to actually get your payout. 
 

DLC: Title Update 15: Archwing

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
The Archwing DLC is badass, because it adds an extremely fun element to the game: space combat. Unfortunately, there are no achievements related to using the Archwing, which is a huge missed opportunity in my book. This DLC will have you destroying helmets, getting a kill with primary, secondary, and melee within five seconds, and essentially Prestiging a piece of gear. The longest part of this DLC will be the Polarization achievements, however, it shouldn’t be a problem if you’re new to the game and have to rank up all those weapons anyways. 
 

DLC: Title Update 15.10

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
This DLC is extremely simple and has no tricky or difficult parts to it. Just play Corpus missions (to destroy Security Cameras) and play a game of Defense on Earth until round 20 (can be solo’d with Excalibur and his Exalted Blade). 
 

DLC: Title Update 15.16: Stolen Dreams

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
Super simple; just complete 10 missions on the Void. As soon as you get a Key (especially Survival, as every five minutes you have a chance to earn another Void Key) use it and complete a mission. This one might require a friend or two, but all of the Tower I levels can be solo’d with little to no difficulty.
 

DLC: Update 16.3: Sanctuary

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
This is the only DLC that requires a decent amount of advancement in the game. First, you need to be Mastery Rank five to attempt Nightmare missions, and second, you need to unlock the planet Eris to attempt Hive missions. Other than that, you’ll need top level gear to survive.

DLC: Update 17.1.4: Echoes of the Sentient
(Full G&RM Found Here)

Introduction to Update 17.1.4:
Echoes of Sentient brought a lot of change and added in a lot of new content but only threw in 2 achievements related to obtaining and running missions with a Kubrow companion. Kubrows are dog like creatures. You can obtain them different ways but these achievements require you to get your on board incubator up and running, as well as finding an egg to hatch.

Note: The time for completion is based off the fact that you need to incubate and mature a Kubrow. Which take 48 Hours each, you can skirt this by rushing Incubation (which costs platinum). As well as setting it up so you start the maturing process right before the daily server reset which basically lets you skip a day.

Step 1 - Howl of the Kubrow:
In order to obtain the Howl of The Kubrow quest you must assassinate Jackal on Venus. Once you have done that the quest will appear and you can start it. Now you will need an Incubator Power Core blueprint which costs 50,000 credits. Gather the Materials needed through grinding quests. One you have everything go to the incubator and select your genetic blueprint (if you don't have one you can select to have it randomized). "Egg Timer" unlocks here.

You can circumvent the grind for components by paying 65 Platinum for a Kubrow starter kit or if you have an egg already you buy a power seperately for 35 platinum. This gives you the bare necessities to get started. Most notably you won't need to farm for Argon Crystals which is probably the most annoying aspect of hatching a Kubrow.

Step 2 - Waiting:
Once incubation has started it takes 48 Hours to finish. You can rush this for 15 platinum which equates to $1 (you can only buy a minimum of 75 platinum at a time). Once it hatches it needs 2 daily reset cycles to mature before you can start taking it on missions. You can skirt this by starting it right before the daily reset cycle, shaving off some of the wait time. Daily reset time is 9pm Eastern Standard Time.

Step 3 - Running of the Kubrow:
Once you have incubated and matured the Kubrow you can take your new puppy on missions with you. Run 10 missions of your desire to unlock "Tenno and Hooch."

Conclusion to Update 17.1.4:
Depending on your approach and willingness to spend money this is either really quick and painless, or somewhat annoying. Obviously this depends on luck as you need to get some rare component drops for the Incubator Power Core. This is doable for free, but much quicker if you drop some money.

DLC: Update 17.7: The Jordas Precept
(Full G&RM Found Here)

Note about the Time Requirement:
This is vastly effected by your mastery rank, as how fast you can rank up in a Syndicate is based on your mastery rank. At the minimum requirement to join a Syndicate of Mastery level 3 and no change in mastery rank will take 93 days to meet the standing requirements. If you are at the current maximum mastery rank (with no special/limited time gear) of 19 this will take you 19 days if you get all possible standing per day. For people with special gear that can reach rank 21 you can shave off a few extra days, but considering most people can't reach that yet I am not going to include that in the time table.

Introduction to Update 17.4:
Welcome to the Jordas Precept. This update brought in a massive overhaul to the movement/parkour system in the game. When you load up the game for the first time it will make you go through a tutorial on the new system. It doesn't take that long and gets you up to speed on the biggest core gameplay changes. This update also brought an big change to the user interface for the Archwing and also brought in another Warframe to use.

Rundown:
The achievements are not directly tied to the new update and thus you may have already completed "Dedication to the Cause." If this is the case you might have to de-rank and re-earn the the final title. This is not always the case. Depending on your mastery level this achievement will take 2 weeks or 3 months. For details on ranking up in Syndicates and upping your mastery level check out the "Dedication to the Cause." It contains some start information in the guide itself and a link with a full blown nitty gritty explanation.

Everything else in this update can be done in the process of ranking up in your chosen Syndicate. In fact if you will probably do most of the remaining achievements in the entire game if you're just starting out.

Your Syndicate can actually help you obtain the void key needed, since once you're a member of the syndicate and have standing with them you buy a 3 pack of random void keys. The odds are against being able to get them this way but it does offer a free way to get void keys. T4 Void keys can also be obtained by farming intercept mission with enemies in 10 -20 level range. You will need one for your self and your partner for the achievement will need one too. For more information on obtaining void keys check this link: https://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Void_Keys

Aside from that the remaining two achievements are pretty easy "The 8-Fold Path" and "Kaboom!" are easily doable alone or with a friend. "The 8-Fold Path" is very doable as there is a very low level defense on Earth, and "Kaboom!" can be earned on accident but is also doable intentionally by heading to a Dark Sector Defense mission with a launcher of some sort and shooting into large groups of infected that gather round the artifact you are protecting.

Conclusion to 17.4:
This DLC's achievements are not really hard just extremely time consuming especially if you're a low mastery level or have very little standing with a Syndicate.

Conclusion:
As mentioned above, this game just takes a little getting used to. Once you’ve got down the Store, Forge, Mods, and Mastery, there isn’t much left to understand. Be patient in the beginning and look online or on these forums for any questions you might have about the game. If you’re fortunate enough, try to convince some friends to get the game as well, since everyone can play without having to spend a single penny.

  • Healer

     

    10

    Revive 10 allies.

     

    See “Field Medic” for more information.

  • Play for 10 hours.

    This will definitely come naturally as you continue to progress and rank up weapons and sentinels.

  • Sell 10000 credits' worth of items.

    This can be obtained by selling either mods or equipment, and should come with no problems, as you will have more than enough duplicate mods and blueprints after 10 hours of game time. 

  • Reach Rank 2 with any Warframe.

     

    The first achievement in the game. Simply complete the introduction level to unlock this.

  • Apply 4 different Mods to a single weapon or Warframe.

    While at your Arsenal, hit  on a weapon or Warframe to upgrade it. This will allow you to apply mods. Select a mod, then move it up to a corresponding slot. The top left of this screen will tell you how many points you have left, so if you have 16 open slots, you can apply four mods worth four points each. You can unlock more open points by leveling up gear. Apply four mods to any weapon or Warframe to unlock this achievement. 

  • Solve 10 Ciphers.

     

    Ciphers are terminals located on levels that can shut down enemy alarms or download data. They will be marked on your map when alarms are going off. Successfully complete 10 of these and the achievement is yours. 

  • Earn 100000 Credits.

     

    This one will also come naturally with time. Completing missions, killing enemies, selling gear, and collecting credits from chests and breaking containers will net you this achievement very easily.

  • Build 20 items in the Foundry.

     

    To build an item in the Foundry, you first need to purchase or acquire a blueprint. Once you have that, head down to the Foundry to see what materials and how many credits are required to forge it. Do this 20 times and the achievement is yours. 

  • Build an item in the Foundry.

     

    See “Scientist” for guide. 

  • Kill the boss in the Mercury region and get to extraction.

     

    Complete the Tolstoj node on Mercury, “Assassination/ Captain Vor,” to unlock this achievement.

  • Kill the boss in the Venus region and get to extraction.

     

    Complete the Fossa node on Venus , “Assassination/ Jackal,” to unlock this achievement. 

  • Kill the boss in the Uranus region and get to extraction.

     

    Complete the Titania Node on Uranus, "Assassination/ Tyl Regor" to unlock this achievement.

  • Kill the boss in the Sedna region and get to extraction.

     

    Complete the Merrow Node on Sedna, “Assassination/ Kela De Thaym,” to unlock this achievement. 

  • Reach Rank 30 with any five Longsword or Dual Short Blades weapons.

     

    There are more than enough bladed weapon blueprints available for purchase. See “Blade Proficiency” for the list.

  • Reach Rank 30 with any three Gauntlets or Hand-to-Hand weapons.

    There are more than enough Gauntlet and Hand-to-Hand blueprints available for purchase. See “Brawler Proficiency” for the list. 

  • Reach Rank 30 with any two Bow weapons.

     

    There are only three bow blueprints available for purchase, so you will need to get both the Paris and Cernos ranked up, unless you chose the Paris Mk. 1 at the start of the game.

  • Reach Rank 30 with any three Dagger or Dual Daggers weapons.

     

    This one will seem like total B.S., as there are only two dagger blueprints available for purchase, the Fang and Karyst. However, there is also a heat dagger available for 75 platinum. You can use the trading board in the game (see the Abbreviated Walkthrough section of the RoadMap) to sell unused weapons, Warframes, and parts for platinum. It works remarkably well, as people are always looking for Prime Warframe and weapon parts. 

  • Reach Rank 30 with any two Heavy Axe, Heavy Hammer, or Heavy Sword weapons.

     

    There are four heavy weapon blueprints available for purchase. See “Heavy Weapon Proficiency” for the list. 

  • Reach Rank 30 with any five Pistol or Akimbo Pistols weapons.

     

    There are more than enough pistol blueprints available for this achievement. See “Pistol Proficiency” for the list.

  • Reach Rank 30 with any three Scythe, Pole-arm or Staff weapons.

     

    There are more than enough pole weapon blueprints available for this achievement. See “Pole Weapon Proficiency” for the list. 

  • Reach Rank 30 with any five Rifle or Machine Gun weapons.

    There are more than enough rifle and machine gun blueprints available for this achievement. See “Rifle Proficiency” for the list.

    *This one unlocked for me after only completing three.

  • Reach Rank 30 with any three Sentinels.

     

    There are only four sentinel blueprints available. Each one costs 100,000 credits, so make sure you save enough when it’s time to switch to a new one. 

  • Reach Rank 30 with any two Shotgun weapons.

     

    There are only three shotgun blueprints available for purchase, so you will need to get the Drakgoon, Hek, and Sobek fully ranked for this achievement.

  • Reach Rank 30 with any three Boomerang, Throwing Discs or Throwing Daggers weapon.

     

    There are only three shuriken blueprints available for purchase, so you will need to get the Kunai, Kestrel, and Hikou fully ranked for this achievement. 

  • Complete 10 missions without any primary or secondary weapons equipped.

    In order to unlock this, you need to head to your Arsenal and un-equip your primary and secondary weapons. Then, complete 10 missions (again, Earth will be the easiest for this) and this achievement is yours. 

  • Deflect 1,000 projectiles with your melee weapon.

    There are two ways to go about this. First, if you have Excalibur as your Warframe, you can use his final super ability, Exalted Blade, which will automatically deflect projectiles if you are not attacking. The other option is to hold while in-game, which will bring out your melee weapon permanently, and hold  which will also automatically deflect projectiles. 

DLC: Update 14.5: Operation Cryotic Front

There are 6 achievements with a total of 160 points

  • Complete 10 successful Mod Transmutes.

     

    To complete a mod transmute, you need to head to the mod station and select four mods. From there, select the top option, “Transmute,” which will cost 20,000 credits. Do this four times for the achievement. 

  • Complete an Interception node and extract with the enemy capturing 40% or less territory.

     

    Interception missions require you play KoTH with four locations. This is nearly impossible to achieve by yourself, so when hovering on an Interception node, check to see if there are any open squads already attempting it. Just leave matchmaking to public and you will eventually find a squad of three or four, which will make this achievement nearly unmissable, unless of course the squad you find is horrible and can’t hold their own against the AI.

  • Complete 5 missions for a Clan that then wins a contested Dark Sector.

    Dark Sector nodes can be found on most planets. They will be marked with some sort of symbol (for example, a Dragonball or a dark figure with a red aura). Complete five of these missions for the achievement.

  • Earn Battle Pay from 5 unique Invasions

     

    Battle pay can only be earned during invastions (special events). There are two methods. The first is completing Dark Sector Conflicts, and the second is Infested Invasion nodes. In both cases, you will need to repeat the mission a specified number of times (typically three). Then, you will have to wait until the event is over and you receive a message in your inbox stating that the pay is yours. 

  • Successfully perform 100 stealth kills.

    To perform a stealth kill, you’ll need to make sure no alarms are sounding and the enemy’s back is towards you. Then, walk up behind them and press to execute them. The Radial Blind super that Excalibur has is perfect for this, as any kill on a blinded enemy counts as a stealth kill. 

  • Complete a Hijack mission without allowing the payload to travel backwards.

    This can be obtained on the Cirium node on Ceres, which is very far into the game. A hijack mission requires you to stay with a Power Core while it travels through a map. While you stay with it, it will sap your shields, so make sure you have the Armor and Health mods at a high level. If you die, or the enemy takes control, it will start to move backwards. If you can keep it moving forward the entire mission, this achievement will unlock. 

DLC: Title Update 15: Archwing

There are 4 achievements with a total of 70 points

  • Destroy 200 Corpus Crewman helmets.

     

    On Corpus levels (you can always check before starting a mission, as hovering over a node will tell you what type of enemy you are facing), get head shots on Corpus Crewman to knock off their helmets. Do this 200 times for the achievement. 

  • Score a kill with your equipped primary, secondary and melee weapons in 5 seconds or less.

     

    In the beginning missions of the game, you can easily obtain this by getting a kill with your primary, swapping to your Secondary and getting a kill, and then using  to kill an enemy with melee. 

  • Polarize a Weapon, Companion, or Warframe

     

    In order to polarize a piece of gear, you must first hit rank 30 with that gear. Then, you will need to either forge a Forma (which can be gained through an Void Mission or Alert) or purchase one for 20 Platinum. Once you have a Forma and Level 30 gear, go to that gear, click in , select Polarize, select the slot you want to add a Polarity to, press A to choose the Polarity,  to confirm. That will unlock this achievement. 

  • Reach Rank 30 with a polarized Weapon, Companion, or Warframe

     

    Pretty straightforward; after Polarizing an item, simply rank it back up to Level 30 and this achievement will unlock. 

DLC: Title Update 15.10

There are 2 achievements with a total of 40 points

  • Complete 20 waves of Defense and successfully extract

    Defense Missions are available on every planet and require you to defend an objective from waves of enemies. After every five rounds the game gives you the option to leave with your loot or risk it and continue for better gear. Stay until round 20 for this achievement. I found Earth, level 1-3 to be the easiest for this. 

  • Destroy 150 Security Cameras

     

    Security cameras will be present on Corpus Maps. They have blue beams which will turn red if they spot you. Shoot 150 of these for the achievement. 

DLC: Title Update 15.16: Stolen Dreams

There are 1 achievements with a total of 50 points

  • Complete 10 Void missions

     

    The Void is a location on the map that requires keys to access. These keys can be obtained during hourly/daily events. They will unlock one node in the Void to play, which can be tower one, two, or three (one is the easiest difficulty, three is the hardest). Play 10 missions in the Void to unlock this achievement.

DLC: Title Update 17.1.4: Echoes of the Sentient

There are 2 achievements with a total of 30 points

  • Begin Genetic Lab Incubation for a Kubrow

     

    To gain access to Kubrow breeding you need the quest Howl of Kubrow which is obtained after assassinating Jackal on Venus. Once you are back on your ship accept the quest to obtain a Kubrow egg from Earth (can be gotten other ways too). 

    So you can do this next part two ways: Splash some cash or farm the components for free.

    Do it for free:
    You will need 50,000 credits to obtain the blueprint for the incubator power core. Once you have that you still need an Egg, 4,500 Nanospores, 2 Control Modules, and an Argon crystal.

    • Credits are easy to come by; just do missions and sell mods.
    • Kubrow Eggs are obtained by destroying Kubrow nests on Earth. Kubrow nests kinda look like huts. For farming I recommend the mission Pacific - Earth.
    • Nano Spores can be found on Saturn, Neptune, Eris, and Orokin Derelict. Saturn comes fairly early so let's go there (If you prefer the other places and have them unlocked got here instead). I would recommend Helene - Saturn or Janus - Saturn for framing.
    • Control Modules can found on Neptune, Europa, or in the Orokin Void. Considering we need Argon Crystals too let's head to the Orokin void. Use what you have, if you have no keys then go to Neptune or Europa instead or attempt to get a key by farming the different types of missions. To see how to get Void keys keys CLICK HERE
    • Argon Crystals can obtained a number of ways. Most notably farming the Orokin Void missions, and killing Corrupted Captain Vor (Tier 4 Void Missions). You can also get them through alert missions, mastery test rewards, killing Councilor Vay Hek (Mastery level 5 Earth Boss), and killing Stalker (who randomly appears after killing certain bosses). Go for these last as these decay overtime and will disappear if not used.


    Splash some cash:
    If you want to skip the grind and get the Kubrow faster you can buy a Kubrow starter kit for 65 platinum. This gives you the power core, an egg, and DNA stabilizers which will help maintain the Kubrow once he is born. This essentially costs 5 USD as the lowest amount you can buy is 75 platinum.

    You can also throw in 15 more platinum to rush the incubation. So you would need to buy a 10 USD plantinum package (since we are going all the way right?), which gives you 170. That gives you enough for the starter kit and the rushed incubation.

    Incubation:
    After obtaining the components using either method, go back to the incubation machine on the ship and select your genetic blueprint and start the incubation. If you don't have a blueprint you can have the game randomly select the Kubrow's genetics. You can either rush the incubation or wait the 48 hours.

  • Complete any 10 missions with a Kubrow equipped

     

    Once the egg is incubated the Kubrow will need to mature for 2 daily server resets. You can skirt this by starting close to the server reset time. Either way this stage takes 24-48 Hours. Once he is matured you can take you Kubrow out on missions. Run 10 missions of you choosing and this achievement is yours.

DLC: Update 17.7: The Jordas Precept

There are 4 achievements with a total of 230 points

  • Reach the highest rank of any Syndicate

     

    Mastery Level Requirements:
    Also in order to complete this DLC you will need to be Mastery Rank 3, as that's when you gain the ability to join a Syndicate. Mastery Rank is gained by leveling up all kinds of gear; Weapons, Warframes, Archwings, Archwing Weapons, and the different types of Companions.

    You can see how close you are to reaching your next mastery level by hitting . This brings up the pause menu. Right under your name is a light blue bar and a number in brackets. The number in brackets is your current mastery rank, and the light blue bar is the exp bar for your progress on getting to the next rank. Once the bar fill up all the way put your cursor over your name and there will be a rank up option. This will make you take a a mastery test to proceed to the next rank.

    Level 1: Primary Weapon Test
    Level 2: Secondary Weapon Test
    Level 3: Melee Weapon Test

    The best way to pass these is have your best of each type of weapon equipped when you go to take the test. Now that you have reached Mastery rank 3 let's go on to actually completing the Syndicate portion of this achievement.

    For even more information on Mastery Level check this link: https://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Mastery_Rank

    Syndicate Requirements:

    Once you have reached mastery rank 3 you will have access to the syndicate communication terminal on your ship. From here you can get the gist of what each of the 6 syndicates are like, join them, and make offerings. This also allows you see how much standing you need to rank up in your syndicate(s) and how much more standing you can earn today.

    In order to earn standing you need to pick out a sigil from your syndicate of choice and where it on your warframe. Once you have it equipped just missions as normal and you will gain standing. This can applied is the appearance section of the Arsenal. The amount of standing you can earn each day is based on this formula (Mastery Rank +1) 1,000. So if you are 3 it would be (3+1) 1,000 which equals 4,000 standing you can earn per day. So if you play a lot and want to minimize how many days this takes, increase your mastery rank. As your rank increases you apply new sigils which give you a bonus to the amount of standing you earn per mission completion. Also once you're rank 1 with any syndicate you will get 3 syndicate specific missions per day which have a higher standing payout than any other mission.

    Once you reach the standing requirement for a rank in the syndicate you need to make an offering of credits and an item they desire. It's different for each syndicate but some like the Steel Meridian require an offer of Forma or like the Red Veil who require some Gallium.

    The standing requirement for each rank goes:

    Syndicates you go negative with will randomly attack you when you're doing missions. They will usually obliterate you unless you are well decked out. Once you make the final offering to obtain Rank 5 the achievement will unlock.

  • As a squad or solo, complete a Tower IV Exterminate with only headshots

    This method courtesy of the forum member Gackt

    You need 2 players for this method. What you want to do is have the host get a head shot, then player 2 runs through the game killing everyone else any way he or she wishes. You need to leave 1 enemy left, you (Player 2) then go to the dashboard, close Warframe, and restart it. It will ask you once logged back in if you wish to reconnect to your lost party, say yes. Once you re-join, head shot the last enemy...ignore Vor if he's there and run to extract. Since you "disconnected"...all enemies you killed no longer appear to count as the stats are wiped. So you and the host should only have 1 kill each and both are head shots.

    Note: This needs to be done twice because the Host will get the achievement because to him the kills still count but they wont for the returning player because to him he's starting fresh. So you will need 1 Exterminate IV key for each person.

    Added tips and comments:

    • Need 2 people
    • Host doesn't get achievement
    • Use Loki to stay invisible to make this really really easy
    • Energy restores are useful to keep your energy up to stay cloaked or use Loki prime to get energy from death orbs.
    • While you are player 2 (not the host) make sure to destroy traps on your way through so the one guy you leave alive doesn't decide to take a stroll and walk into a death orb laser.
    • Staying cloaked helps you keep away from annoying Corrupted Vor.
    • Bring a good/strong headshot weapon and check after your kill to make sure it registered as this game seems to have issues with registering headshots from time to time. Bows and Snipers being an example of a good headshot weapon.
    • Obviously don't leave your 1 target left something like an Ancient, MOA, or Drone. Lancers and Corpus Crewman are the weakest and easier to headshot.
  • Kill 10 or more enemies with a single explosion (Tonkor, etc)

     

    There are a number of ways to cause an explosion in this game, it is perfectly possible you will get this by accident playing with other people or on your own.

    Your best bet is get 1 of 9 launchers in the game and go to a Dark Sector Defense with Infected as the enemy. There will be tons of bunched up enemies that are easy to kill in early rounds.

    The 9 Launchers currently in the game are:

    • Miter
    • Ogris
    • Panthera
    • Penta
    • Penta (Secura)
    • Simulor
    • Simulor (Synoid)
    • Tonkor
    • Torid
  • Survive 8 waves of Defense using only melee attacks!

    To make sure you don't screw up and accidentally use another weapon, go to the Arsenal in the back of your ship and un-equip your primary, secondary weapon, and companion (Kubrow/Sentinel). For the sake of ease use a low level Defense mission on Earth called Lith. It's levels 1-6 and your opponent is the Grineer. Even though it is a low level mission I would still advise having a slightly upgraded Shield & Health bar, as well as an upgraded Melee weapon.

    After clearing wave 5 the game will ask you if you want to extract. The answer is NO as this will end the mission. Continue to fight all the way through wave 8, and once it ticks over to wave 9 the achievement should unlock.
