Where to farm Detonite Ampules

Piscinas Saturn

While plenty of Detonite Ampules should come to you quite naturally throughout the game, there is a node that is a great place to farm them. Piscinas on Saturn is a Dark Sector Survival mission. You are potentially going to need to do this when you go to build your Railjack. It’s against the Infested, but the Detonite Ampules will drop as they are one of the resources you can get on Saturn. Being a Dark Sector mission, it has an improved resource drop chance. 

To farm as much as possible in Survival missions, find a spot on the map with one entrance, then stay there, and all the enemies will come to you. Running a team with a Nekros will allow you to use his Desecrate ability to re-roll the loot tables of dead enemies, increasing the number of resources you will get. You can also run Warframes like Hydroid with Pilfering Swarm, or Khora with Pilfering Stangledome to increase your loot drops. It is a good idea to have one person bring a stealth Frame. They can leave the room you use as a base and get the life support capsules without dragging away any enemies, or just getting destroyed by the number of enemies that will be just outside the door to your safe room.

For these missions, it is also a good idea to farm for as long as possible. Every five-minute rotation will give you an improved percentage chance buff, and some of these affect resource drops.

Detonite Ampule drops are also affected by resource boosters that you can buy from the market place. It can be a great idea to pick up a three-day booster to increase the drop rate of resources, and a three-day booster to double the number of resources that you collect. Dedicate a weekend to doing any farming that you need to do, and you can then enjoy a few months without needing to do much farming at all. Finally, if you have a Smeeta Kavat, its Charm ability will increase the number of Detonite Ampules that you collect.
