Nightwave Series 2: The Emissary

Within our darkest recesses, there lives a beacon of hope.

Some call him a gift. Others a miracle. He emerged from that vile plague of horrors not just unsullied, but immaculate. In his blood, he bears the power to heal the sick, to revive the fallen, to cure the Grineer of their rot and disease.

This is his story.

Nightwave Series 2: The Emissary

Nora Night’s next broadcast follows the remarkable tale of Arlo. As the story unfolds, you’ll learn more about Arlo and his mission to soothe our deepest wounds.

Nightwave Series 2 Changes

Based on your feedback, Nightwave Series 2 introduces a suite of changes to reduce the time and tension of earning rewards.

Playing Catch-Up! - We added a way for you to play acts from previous weeks in case you missed them!

De-grindification! - Less Weekly and Elite Weekly acts, but still giving the same amount of Standing as you would get from Series 1! In addition, we are looking to front-load Nightwave Creds as an earlier reward for participating in the Series!

Act Changes! - We have lowered the Time and Wave requirements for some Endless Mission Acts, as well as lowering the cost of Ayatan Statues (this was implemented during Series 1). In addition, we have also removed the ‘with friends’ requirements from all of our Nightwave Acts!

New Acts! - Including the most important one... petting your Kubrow or Kavat. We also included some Acts for Kuva missions, Transmuting Mods and K-Drive Races!

Nightwave FAQ

What is Nightwave?
Ongoing pirate radio broadcast hosted by Nora Night, the eyes and ears of the Origin System. Each Nightwave Series will unfold over several weeks and tells a brand-new story. Completing daily and weekly challenges - called Acts - will unlock limited-time, exclusive rewards!

How do I earn Nightwave rewards?
In each Nightwave Series, you’ll earn standing with Nora by completing Acts to rise through the Reward Tiers. Unlock power items, exclusive cosmetics or currency called Emissary Creds with each new Tier reached. Make sure to complete all 30 Tiers before the Series is over to earn all the rewards!

How long will Series 2 run?
Nightwave Series 2 will last about 10 weeks -- we don't have an exact end date, so this may shift. Each new Series starts fresh for all players, which means your Emissary Creds and Nightwave Standing will expire at the end of the series. Spend them before they disappear!

What are Episodes? When will new Episodes come out?
Episodes are introduced throughout the course of a Nightwave Series that move the story along and may include in-game changes (i.e. more enemies, stronger enemies).
