Nightwave: Series 3 — The Glassmaker

Can you crack the case, Tenno?

Nora is back on the air with Nightwave: Series 3 — The Glassmaker, live on all platforms. Step inside Nora’s virtual crime scene to track down a killer with a twisted method of murder. Rise through 30 Ranks to earn new rewards like a Nightwave Landing Craft, Augments, and Cephalon-themed Customizations for your Warframe, Operator and Melee Weapons!

Nightwave: Series 3 — The Glassmaker

After a string of mysterious murders, investigate the latest crime scene to stop a cryptic killer from striking again. Step into Nora's crime-simula to witness the gruesome work of the Glassmaker. Check the shadows, search for clues and follow the trail of “glassed” bodies to crack the case… before it’s too late.

Beyond the interactive narrative, Nightwave: Series 3 also introduces new Daily and Weekly Acts! Don’t have a ship of your own? Railjack Acts can be completed by joining any open crew from the Star Chart.

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 tell a brand-new story. Completing daily and weekly challenges - called Acts - will unlock limited-time rewards.

How do I earn Nightwave rewards?
Complete Acts and rank up your Nightwave Standing to earn power items, exclusive Customizations, Nightwave-specific currency and more! Make sure to complete all 30 Ranks before the Series is over to earn all the rewards.

How long will Series 3 run?
We don't have an exact end date yet, but expect Series 3 to run for at least two months. An official announcement will be made on our Forums at a later date! Each Series is a fresh start for all players, which means your Crystal Cred will expire when the Series is completed. Spend them before they disappear!

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


For console Tenno, this update also includes Railjack Revisited Part 1, Defendable Object changes, two new TennoGen bundles, four new Augments and tons of additional bug fixes, balance updates and quality-of-life additions. Read the full patch notes for PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch!

Railjack Revisited Part 1

Earlier this year, we released Warframe Revised, an update that touched many different aspects of Warframe, including a host of bug fixes for Railjack. In Railjack Revisited Part 1, we took a deeper dive into key areas of core gameplay: pacing, balance and tools.

Harrow - Tribunal
Condemn Augment: Other players will proc 50% of the effects of Penance and Thurible when attacking chained enemies.

Grendel - Catapult
Pulverize Augment: Launch Grendel in your aim direction. Costs 10 Energy.

Hildryn - Blazing Pillage

Healing Defendable Objects

Healing Abilities and Damage Reduction changes shared on April 3 have arrived! If you’re unfamiliar, these changes allow for Healing Abilities to be of more use in different strategies throughout various Mission types. Healing Defense objects can serve well as an alternative or a complement to the commonly used defensive Abilities, such as Frost's Snow Globe, Gara's Mass Vitrify, Limbo's Cataclysm.

Nintendo Switch Update Size

The total download size for this update is ~800 MB, bringing Warframe’s total size to 20.3 GB, right under the base memory allowance. For Tenno who have not equipped their Nintendo Switch with an SD card, this means that having the necessary space may soon be necessary to accept future updates. We know this is not ideal, but we thank you for your understanding.
