The Hidden Messages riddle quest is one of the more unique in Warframe. It blends together immersive elements of the lore with the gameplay mechanics and also gives the player little teases of ancient myth. This quest is pretty unique, but to take on its riddles three, you must know where to be. To start the Hidden Messages riddle quest, complete the Pluto/Sedna Junction. The next phase will be unlocked when you return to your Codex and speak with Ordis.
The Hidden Messages riddle is split into three different phases.
