Infested Research

A screenshot of an Orokin device, consisting of a squat round base with an arm that branches out from the side before arching back towards the main unit, with a small receiver at the end of the arm positioned directly over the base. A conduit of cyan energy flows between the base and the receiver. The device is located within the Deimos underground tunnels, and the ruins of defunct Entrati machinery can be seen in the background. Screenshot by GrayArchon.

The Infested we are encountering around the old Vaults seem… different. Delve into the ruins and engage with Infested so we may conduct research.

This is one of 5 possible Arcana bounties that can show up on Mother's bounty board on the Cambion Drift after the Tenno has cleared an Isolation Vault. This bounty has the Tenno investigate Infested in the underground, and always ends with the Entrati Research stage. It always contains the same four stages, though the order is variable. Below are the unique dialogue lines that are heard when beginning and ending the bounty, and when running the different stages.

Bounty start

Mother: "Loid tells me he has an… experiment… he wishes to conduct on the Infested in the tunnels. In the interests of science, I would like to indulge him. See what he needs and help out if you have a mind to."

Loid: "We have a unique opportunity to conduct an experiment upon the Infested in their natural environment. Continue into the tunnels, and I shall explain the procedure."

Hive Extermination

Loid: "It will be necessary to thin the Infested herd even further before we can proceed."

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus) Loid: "Exceptional lethality. Very good work, Tenno. We can move on now."

(upon completing bounty stage without bonus) Otak: "Well now, THAT'S all taken care of. You can be a bit scary sometimes, y'know?"


Loid: "Infested are gathering to drive you back. Defend this location until their numbers dwindle."

(upon completing bounty stage)1 Otak: "You cleaned them all out! That was amazing!"

Sealing the Cracks

Loid: "The mist in this area will hinder our efforts. You will need to find the source and shut it down."

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus) Loid: "That was handled with commendable alacrity, Tenno. Kindly continue to the experiment site."

(upon completing bounty stage without bonus) Otak: "Oh boy. This mist stuff was real nasty-smelly. I'm sooo glad you got rid of it!"

Bounty end (Entrati Research)

Loid: "Finally. We can get the experiment underway whenever you are ready."

(upon completing the bounty) Loid: "A tricky undertaking, but you responded commendably. A job well done, I think."
