Warframe Nightwave Series 1 - end date, ranking rewards and challenges

Featured post The Nightwave challenge and standing menu in Warframe.

Nightwave challenges were recently introduced to Warframe and the first series of them end in the next few days. Since you only have a short amount of time, you’ll likely not have time to obtain every single rank if you’re just starting now, but we will be going over the principles of completing challenges in order to obtain standing for those ranking upgrades.

It may have been a while since you last touched Warframe, perhaps eagerly anticipating this update before diving back in. There’s certainly a lot of complexity in this game and this update only complicates things further, so be sure to glance through our Warframe guide to get up to speed before leaping into the new stuff.

Heavily tied into this challenge is the legend surrounding the Wolf of Saturn Six and his fugitives, which you can find out about in our Warframe Wolf of Saturn Six guide.

Warframe Nightwave guide

This guide to the Nightwave challenges in Warframe will go over end time for the series, the series 1 ranking rewards, the ways to gain standing with the Nightwave challenges, and all of the Wolf Cred offerings throughout Nightwave series 1.

Nightwave End Date

Nightwave Series 1 ends on either Sunday 19th or Monday 20th May 2019, depending on your region. The specific times for your region are as follows:

  • 01:00 BST (UK) – May 20th 2019
  • 02:00 CEST (Europe) – May 20th 2019
  • 20:00 EST (East Coast US) – May 19th 2019
  • 17:00 PST (West Coast US) – May 19th 2019

Nightwave Series 1 Ranking rewards

To check your standing, go to the Orbiter’s navigation console or click the banner on the lower-right corner of the screen. You can also interact with the radio scanner, just to the right of the ramp.

Earning standing is as simple as completing the Daily, Weekly, and Elite Weekly challenges. Daily rewards you with 1000 standing, while Weekly and Elite Weekly reward you with 3000 standing and 5000 standing respectively. You can also earn a nominal 50 standing for each Saturn Six Fugitive that is captured during missions. They spawn frequently, so you shouldn’t have much trouble finding them. Below then are the standing rewards for each rank:
