Hallowed Flame

25 October 2019 – 01 November 2019

Hallowed Flame was a Halloween-themed Tactical Alert running in October of 2019.


Mission

Hallowed Flame was a special mission that took place on a new node on Earth labelled “Hallowed Flame Mission 1”. This mission took place in Emissary Derelict ships against the Infested, using mechanics similar to the Zealoid Prelate Assassination mission from Nightwave Series 2: The Emissary. The Zealoid Prelate himself was not present, but he taunted the Tenno through transmissions, mostly identical to those from his Assassination missions.

(upon mission start) Zealoid Prelate: “They must not steal our light….”

The Infested enemies were all invulnerable to damage. The Tenno had to find a Zealoid Bastion and kill it to obtain its lantern. The lantern could be picked up or left on the ground.

(upon picking up Arlo’s Flame, variant) Zealoid Prelate: “You have not earned his gift.”

(upon picking up Arlo’s Flame, variant) Zealoid Prelate: “His light is not for you….”

(upon picking up Arlo’s Flame, variant) Zealoid Prelate: “Imposter.”

Within the lantern’s radius, the Infested were vulnerable and could be killed. The radius of the flame shrank continuously, but was replenished by killing Infested. The Infested would swarm the location. The Tenno had to keep the flame alight for 5 minutes by killing enemies in the radius. Every few minutes or so, a new horde zone would be marked on the map, and the Infested would stop spawning in the current location. The Tenno had to travel to the new location in order to find more enemies to kill.

(when a new horde zone is marked, variant) Zealoid Prelate: “Your strength… valuable. Your self… worthless.”

(when a new horde zone is marked, variant) Zealoid Prelate: “We shall wash the self out of you.”

(when a new horde zone is marked, variant) Zealoid Prelate: “A thousand hands wait… to embrace….”

(when a new horde zone is marked, variant) Zealoid Prelate: “You think yourself… subtracting. You… are dividing. We… multiply.”

The longer the Tenno stayed, the higher the enemy level rose. After 5 minutes, extraction was marked. Failing to keep the lantern lit before the 5-minute mark failed the mission.

(if the lantern breaks) Zealoid Prelate: “Darkness for you.”

After the first mission was completed, the Tenno received an inbox message from the Lotus, containing an Orokin Catalyst.

After this, the second mission would be unlocked. This mission was identical, except with higher enemy level, faster lantern radius decay, and a longer requirement (7 minutes). Completing this mission rewarded the Tenno with a Forma, delivered via an identical inbox message.

The third mission required the Tenno to hold out for 10 minutes and rewarded them with an Aura Forma.

The fourth Endurance mission was endless, where the Tenno had to survive as long as possible. Extraction was not marked until 5 minutes had passed – breaking the lantern before this would fail the mission. A counter in the HUD marked a survival point score, starting at 0 and counting upwards as long as the Tenno kept the lantern lit. If the Tenno managed to extract after achieving a score of 900 (roughly 16:30 minutes), they were rewarded with a Stratos emblem and the new Naberus ephemera.
