Sorties are a form of high-level daily missions that becomes available after having completed the quest: “The War Within”. Only level 30 warframes can be used during these missions, and there usually are a few “conditions” on each of the three parts of the Sortie mission.
How to do them?
Bring a level 30 – decently strong warframe and good weapons – read up on what the different parts of the Sortie is – one part might be Spy making it smarter to go Stealth warframe (mind you Ciphers are not available to use in Sorties).
Go Public to make it easier – much harder to do these alone usually.
Sometimes there are conditions such as “No shields”, Only melee weapon etc. on mission – if so, it will mention this when about to select the Sortie part-mission you wish to do in the navigation panel.
Why do Sorties?
Sortie can be completed once per day – and it usually have a quite nice reward-table of the following rewards:
- Ayatan Anasa Sculpture
- Riven Mod
- 6000x Kuva
- 4000 Endo
- 3-day booster
- Exilus Adapter
- Orokin Catalyst BP
- Orokin Reactor BP
- Legendary Core – Rarest of rewards
You can only get one of these rewards from completing the Sortie mission for the day – and I have segmented the list in what chance of getting them you have – so Sculpture and Riven mod is easiest sharing similar “drop chance”. After that Kuva, Endo and Booster – then Exilus, Forma, Catalyst, Reactor and Lastly Legendary core, in Difficulty to get.
If you are decently modded got good equipment, and end up in a good group for Sortie – these mission may take about 15-20 minutes max – might be worth-while investment of the day since the Rewards are quite nice :)
