Tactical Alert: Long Shadow

Tenno,

The Nightwatch Corps are back. A lone survivor from a massacre near Ceres has revealed that they have set up base there. We need to know what they’re up to.

Travel to Ceres and intercept their communications.

—The Lotus

The first mission was an Interception mission on Ceres, on the Shipyards map. The enemies consisted of the elite Nightwatch Corps. The Tenno had to hold out for two waves. Upon completion of the mission, the Tenno received an inbox message with 50.000 credits and 800 endo.

Tenno,

We have recovered vital information from the messages you intercepted. Take this with my thanks.

—The Lotus

The next mission was described in the World State Window as follows: “The information you intercepted from Nightwatch communications shows they have acquired a warframe cryopod. Head to the target location and defend the cryopod until it can be safely extracted.” It was a 10-wave Defence mission on Ceres, still against the Nightwatch Grineer. The ambient lightning strike hazards are greatly increased in this mission. Completing this mission rewarded the Tenno with an Exilus Adapter.

Provide cover while a lone Tenno operative raids the ship for intel and supplies.” This was a 20-minute Survival mission on the Grineer Galleon tileset, with fire hazards active all over the map. This mission rewarded the Tenno with an Orokin Catalyst and Orokin Reactor.

The reward was a Stratos emblem.
