How To Build A Dry Dock In Warframe


The Dry Dock allows you to build and house Railjack battleships in Warframe. The ships can go on special missions that involve space battles, boarding hostile ships, and a whole lot of teamwork.

To build your Dry Dock, you need to download the Rising Tide update, then log in. When you get in the game, Ordis sends you a message telling you that he has discovered a Dry Dock Schema that he feels will be of interest to you and your fellow Tenno.

After that, it is off to the Clan Dojo to build it. You will need quite a bit of room for the Dry Dock, so you need to make it at the end of a long corridor, building it as an offshoot near other rooms won’t work. To build your Dry Dock, you need the following resources:

  • 100,000 Credits
  • 25,000 Salvage
  • 850 Circuits
  • 15 Tellurium
  • 1 Forma

Remember, multipliers will apply depending on the size of your Clan.

The Dry Dock has a 12 hour build time, although this can be rushed with Platinum to finish the build instantly. After, you need to head to the far side of the Dry Dock, where you will find a platform with two consoles on it. One of the consoles allows you to research items, and you will be able to research the Railjack Cephalon. To do this, you will need the following resources, and multipliers for your Clan size will also impact the cost:

  • 4000 Credits
  • 5 Mutagen Mass
  • 5 Detonite Injectors
  • 5 Fieldron Samples
  • 2 Orokin Cells

The Railjack Cephalon has a research time of 1 hour, and cannot be rushed. Once the build is complete, you will be able to replicate the Blueprint and create the Railjack Cephalon itself.
