Reactive Crystals and Requiem Pylons Guide – Warframe

A potential farming technique.

As you explore the Cambion Drift in Warframe, you will come across broken stone pylons with a Requiem Symbol floating above a Reactive Crystal at the center. If you hit these with your amp they will activate, causing the pylon to reform and enemies to spawn nearby.

All the pylons will have a different effect on enemies, and in some cases you can kill the affected enemies with your amp to farm rare Deimos related resources. At the moment, some of these appear to be bugged, or at least highly ineffective, but we will be updating this guide over time as secrets are revealed or fixes are applied.

Where to find the pylons

The Pylons will randomly spawn in a number of potential locations on the map. They cycle each time you load into the Cambion Drift. It is a good idea to take to the air in your Archwing and track them down that way.

You can find potential locations marked on the map above by the white mask symbols. We will be updating this map as we discovered more.

Now, exactly how good these are for farming rare resources is debatable. Our own testing has yielded mediocre results at best since a number of exploits were resolved by Hotfixes. We will continue to test this feature to see if we discover the best method of using them.
