Lotus Dialogue: Rush

When Corpus capital ships are damaged or destroyed in orbital battles, the fleet will undertake salvage operations to recover the most valuable material. The Lotus will send a squad of Tenno to take out the transports in Archwing combat, denying the Corpus any return on their investment. During Rush missions, the Tenno must rapidly navigate a battle-scarred Obelisk in order to reach its loading bay and destroy the transport ships before they escape. On the standard Starchart, this mission type appears only at Kepler, Phobos.

The Corpus salvage operation is overseen by a Corpus Commander, who resembles a Slo Comba. Mission control is provided by the Lotus, while the Commander's frantic orders to his subordinates can also be heard.

The mission starts with the Tenno spawning into the Corpus Ship Archwing tileset, far away from the loading docks where the transports are. A timer, usually around 2 – 4 minutes, immediately begins counting down to the time when the final transport will leave. The Tenno must race through the ship to the loading dock. Corpus Archwing enemies will engage the Tenno, and frequent Corpus Stasis Mines will slow down any Archwing that enters their radius.

At the loading dock, the Tenno will find three transport ships, each protected by two shield Orbiters (a Nemes Ranger and a Nemes Scout, identical in appearance). Both Orbiters must be destroyed before the transport can be damaged. The transports will leave at 30, 15, and 0 seconds remaining; once they start moving, the Tenno has about 10 seconds to damage them before they escape completely. The next transport to leave will always be waypointed.

The mission will fail if the Tenno destroys none of the transports. As long as the Tenno destroys at least one of the transports, extraction will be marked once the final transport is destroyed or escapes.

Mission start

Lotus: "The enemy is trying to escape with supplies. Hurry to the loading dock and destroy their transports."

Lotus: "This is a race against time. Reach the loading bay and destroy the transport ships before they can escape."

Lotus: "We don't have much time. Race to the loading docks and destroy enemy transports before they can escape."

While the Tenno is en route to the loading docks

Corpus Commander: "It's the Tenno! Launch all offensive units. This is not a drill."

Corpus Commander: "Transports, prepare for evacuation. The Tenno are here to steal our profits."

Corpus Commander: "Tenno assailants approaching fast. We must protect the product. Transports, initiate emergency departure."

Corpus Commander: "Move fast, Corpus; the Betrayers are coming. Ready the transports. We have orders from the top: protect that product."

Corpus Commander: "Interceptors?! They're flying right past you. Why do they call you Interceptors if you don't intercept?"

Corpus Commander: "In the name of the Void, protect our product! Save our profits!"

Corpus Commander: "They're too close. Forget everything but the high-credit product and go."

Corpus Commander: [sigh] "The Board isn't going to be happy about this."

Corpus Commander: "A credit bonus for any transport crew who escapes the Tenno raiders. That, and the opportunity to keep living."

When the Tenno is halfway to the loading docks

Lotus: "You've hit the midpoint. Don't stop now."

Lotus: "You're halfway there."

Lotus: "This is the halfway point. Keep going."

When the Tenno is close to the loading docks

Lotus: "You've almost reached the loading docks."

Lotus: "The loading docks are just ahead. Get ready."

Lotus: "You've almost made it."

Lotus: "Almost there."

When time is running out

Lotus: "You have to move faster. A transport is almost ready to escape."

Lotus: "Tenno, hurry. The first transport is almost loaded."

Lotus: "You're running out of time. The first transport is about to depart."

Upon reaching the loading dock

Corpus Commander: "Transports, deploy shield Orbiters. Protect your cargo!"

Corpus Commander: "Transports, all power to shield Orbiters. Now!"

Lotus: "There's a transport. Take out its shields by destroying those Orbiters."

Lotus: "You need to disable shields before you can attack the transport. Target the Orbiters."

Lotus: "You've found a transport. Destroy the Orbiters to make it vulnerable."

When shield Orbiters are destroyed

Corpus Commander: "Transport. You're vulnerable. Get out of there!"

Lotus: "Orbiters destroyed. Target the transport."

Lotus: "Shields down. Open fire."

Lotus: "It's vulnerable. Finish it off."

15 seconds before a transport departs

Corpus Commander: "Transport, stop loading and power engines. They're close."

Corpus Commander: "Load complete? Okay, get out of here."

Lotus: "A transport is powering its engines."

Lotus: "A transport is fully loaded."

If a transport escapes

Corpus Commander: "Transport escaped. I'm getting a bonus for sure."

Corpus Commander: "Too slow, Tenno! My transports are getting away."

Lotus: "Too late. A transport escaped."

Lotus: "You let a transport escape."

Lotus: "You need to move faster. Their transports are escaping."

15 seconds before the last transport departs

Corpus Commander: "Get out of here, move."

Corpus Commander: "Go, go, go!"

Lotus: "Hurry, the last transport is powering its engines."

Lotus: "The last transport is leaving."

Lotus: "Don't let that last transport escape."

If the last transport escapes

Corpus Commander: "Hah. The last transport just left. Those Tenno will have to try harder next time."

Lotus: "The last transport escaped."

If all transports escape (mission failure)

Corpus Commander: "Praise the Void. The profits are safe."

Corpus Commander: "The transports are all safe. The profits are safe."

Corpus Commander: "Call the Board, let them know the Tenno have failed… again."

Lotus: "All the transports escaped. This mission is a failure."

Lotus: "You let all the transports escape. Move faster next time."

Lotus: "You failed to stop the transports. Mission over."

Marking extraction

Lotus: "You're done here. Meet up with your ship."

Lotus: "Rendezvous with your Landing Craft for extraction."

Lotus: "Extraction is ready."

Upon extraction, if some transports escaped

Corpus Commander: "It's all over? Tell me at least one survived! [pause] Good."

Corpus Commander: [sigh] "Some profit is better than no profit. I suppose that's what I'll tell the Board."

Lotus: "Good work. You stopped some of the transports from leaving."

Lotus: "Mission accomplished. You destroyed supplies crucial to the enemy."

Upon extraction, if no transports escaped

Corpus Commander: "They're all destroyed… the Board is going to have my head for this…."

Corpus Commander: "Not… one… escaped? Our profits…. How could you let this happen?"

Lotus: "Excellent. Not one transport escaped."

Lotus: "Well done. You took out all the transports."
