Neurodes are a commonly used resource in Warframe. You will need them to build weapons, equipment, parts of Warframes, and even some cosmetics. In this guide, we’ll show you where to get them.
Neurodes are a pretty common drop from playing missions, so all the usual super-farming techniques will work for them. We will run through the best of these in this guide for people who may be new to the game.
How To Farm Neurodes
You can find Neurodes on the following planets:
- Orokin Derelicts
Different worlds are more suitable for farming, depending on where you are in the game. For new players, Earth is the best place to try and farm Neurodes. The Everest node features an Excavation mission that is the first place you will need to grind to try and get Neurodes. After you get access to the Tikal node, you should grind that instead. While it is another Excavation mission, this one is a Dark Sector with increased drop chances for resources.
You can use Resource Boosters to increase the drop chance of resources, and the amount you get with each drop. If you are a member of a Clan, it is worth asking veteran players to run a mission with you and bring some farming Warframes like Nekros, Hyrdoid, or Khora to increase your chances of getting some. Open every locker and container you see, and if you are lucky, some neurode clusters will spawn for a guaranteed drop.
More veteran players can farm for them on Eris or the Derelicts, although there is a degree of conflicting information out there about efficiency. I have never noticed anywhere, or any circumstances, that will drop a considerable amount of Neurodes except for going after Sentients on Lua.
This fact is trivial if you are strong enough, but a nightmare for everyone else. I can one-shot a Sentient with specific weapons and Warframes combinations, but others will not be so lucky. A reliable Sniper Rifle and a buffing frame like Rhino or Chroma is a great choice. Sentients will adapt to the damage you inflict on them, so you will want to bring a potent primary and secondary weapon with you. Spawn in on Plato, and find the blue Conculysts patrolling the region. Let them see you, making the Sentients spawn. These have a good chance of dropping Neurodes on death but are not easy to kill.
And that’s it for Neurode farming. Your best tool when it comes to getting this particular resource is patience and traditional grinding.
