Warframe Guide: How to get Oberon

How To Get Oberon In Warframe

We’re back once again here at ISKMogul with yet another Warframe guide. For you new folks in the back, Warframe is a free-to-play shooter made by Canadian studio, Digital Extremes. The game has earned a pretty good reputation over the years for delivering a truckload of fun and engaging content across a variety of expansions.

There’s always more to learn though, so knowing all the secrets to Warframe isn’t easy. But helping new players learn is great for the game, so here’s our next Warframe guide, and just like our other guides recently, we’re going back to basics. A lot of new players seem to always need advice on farming or finding an item. “How do I unlock this Warframe?” and “Where do I find this item?” are very common questions in the community. So following our guides on farming and building Warframes like Ivara, Garuda, Vauban and others, here’s a new how to get a Warframe guide.

Next up in the list is Oberon, described as “a paladin among Warframes. Endowed with zealous offensive powers and sacred protective skills, he is a balanced fighter with assault and supportive capabilities.”

His abilities make Oberon a rather solid Support Warframe. Oberon can utilize a variety of healing and controlling abilities to support allies. Renewal can help heal your team. Smite can even deal some damage. Hallowed Ground can also make for good control, especially when combined with the immobilization from Reckoning. In short, if you’re a person who enjoy support and crowd control playstyles, and maybe even a spot of healing, Oberon is for you.

Check it out in the trailer below.

To get Oberon’s components blueprints, you will need to farm Eximus units. These units have a special red aura that denotes them in battle. All Eximus units have a one percent chance of dropping a component blueprint on death. Almost any base unit type (OspreyLancerMOA, etc.) can spawn as an Eximus, and it will spawn 10-15 levels higher, so bring a group if you’re a newer player and want to ensure survival.

Below, you will find the percent chance of it being one of the components:

  • Chassis – 38% drop
  • Neuroptics – 38% drop
  • Systems – 22% drop

Lucky for us though, it’s very easier to farm for Oberon. Unlike our previous guide on Rhino, there’s no need to defeat a specific special boss to get most of the materials. The one tricky part is Gallium, though it will sometimes drop from higher level normal enemies, the two bosses, Lech Kril (Mars, War) or Tyl Regor (Uranus, Titania), are your best bet. It’s highly recommended to read through the Wiki sections on both Tyl Regor and Lech Kril to learn the best approach to beating them reliably.

For the basic resources listed below, they drop most often on the planets listed. Normal enemies and loot containers drop them in OK quantities. Always keep cycling your Extractors for those basic resources, even early in the game when you’re low in Mastery Ranks, you will save a run or two later in your farming efforts.

  • Alloy Plate: Venus, Sedna, Jupiter, Ceres, Pluto and Phobos
  • Circuits: Venus, Ceres, and the Kuva Fortress.
  • Rubedo: Earth, Europa, Phobos, Sedna, Pluto and Orokin Void
  • Polymer Bundle: Venus, Mercury and Uranus

The farming of these more rare resources is pretty tricky. These rare resources are often restricted to higher Mastery Rank, and sometimes locked behind boss fights.

  • Neural Sensors: Missions on Jupiter and the Kuva Fortress
  • Morphics: Mercury, Mars, Europa and Pluto
  • Control Module: Void Missions are a good source for this, as are higher level missions on Europa and Neptune
  • Gallium: Defeat Lech Kril (Mars, War) or Tyl Regor (Uranus, Titania) It can drop rarely on Mars and Uranus.
  • Orokin Cell: Defeat Lech Kril (Mars, War) or General Sargas Ruk (Saturn) for the best drop chance. Also found on Saturn, Ceres and Orokin Derelict.

To assemble Oberon, you will need the following resources for each part, and some extras for final assembly:

Chassis

  • 15,000 Credits
  • 1000 Polymer Bundle
  • 300 Rubedo
  • 1 Gallium

Neuroptics

  • 15,000 Credits
  • 500 Circuits
  • 150 Alloy Plate
  • 150 Polymer Bundle
  • 1 Control Module

Systems

  • 15,000 Credits
  • 220 Alloy Plate
  • 500 Polymer Bundle
  • 1 Orokin Cell
  • 1 Gallium

Full Frame

  • 30,000 Credits
  • 1 Oberon Chassis
  • 1 Oberon Neuroptics
  • 1 Oberon Systems
  • 1 Orokin Cell

Once you have all the Blueprints, head to the Foundry and start build. Although remember, it’s going to take time. And the few days you have to wait can be better spent doing other farming or leveling up gear, so save your Platinum and don’t rush it. Also, check to make sure you have an open slot before beginning the build.

Warframe is free-to-play now on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch. The developers recently deployed the Rising Tide update, which introduced the first of the player-built ships, the Railjack. You will want to jump on that to be ready when Empyrean drops next year.
