ightwave Series 3 Glassmaker has arrived in Warframe, bringing with it new things to do. The debut of the new round of Nightwave with Season 3 Glassmaker has brought a new gameplay mechanic to fool around with. Players will be hunting down an unknown murderer using a new clue-based detective gameplay loop that has you hunting down hidden clues in Warframe. Aside from the new story, Nightwave season 3 has also brought some new and old tasks for players to complete to earn unique rewards. One of these is the Warframe – Speedster Challenge.
During the Warframe – Speedster Challenge, the player must complete any Capture mission in 90 seconds or less. This is not impossible but it will take some work. Here’s how to complete the Speedster Challenge.
The first choice you need to make is which node on the Star Chart you want to use. There are some tilesets that are confusing and hide the target of a Capture mission at the end of a very long run. And since you need to kill the target and get to extraction in less than 90 seconds, you cannot waste time finding them.
This means the best node to use would be the Capture mission at Mantle on Earth. The small corridors and relatively simple layout make it the best choice for the Speedster Challenge.
Next up, you need to decide which Warframe you want to bring. You’re going to need a quick one, so a tank like Rhino is not the optimal choice here. Loki as a basic choice is good. His high mobility makes him relatively quick. Although the real key when using him is to keep invisibility up to avoid getting tangled up by the enemies around you. Nova is also useful as she can quickly hop around using portals.
Another option is to go for speed-focused options like Volt or even Gauss. Gauss, in particular, has a major buff to his speed, but it makes him much harder to control.
The other option to speed up your runs is to use the [SPOILER] mode. This special mode is unlocked later in the story (you will know what I’m talking about when it unlocks) and use that to blink around the map.
The final piece of advice is to try this solo. Having a group around will only slow you down and tick away precious seconds as you’re stuck waiting for that one goof whose busy popping chests. If you’re doing Earth node like this guide recommends, you should have no issues taking out the Capture target solo.
