Warframe: Atlas Prime farming guide


With the release of Atlas Prime finally here, it’s time to learn how to farm him, but also, obtain all of the Warframe’s parts.

If you’ve been playing Warframe as long as many of your fellow Tenno have, you know that every Prime Warframe can take quite a while to farm, each one offering a paid and free path to obtaining the suit itself.

Those who want to take the free route may want to know a few things in regards of how to obtain him, how long it takes to build him, and what Relics you will need to trade for or buy in order everything I mentioned earlier in this guide.

About Atlas Prime

Before you get into the meat of this guide, you need to know what Atlas actually is, which makes him a rather unique Warframe compared to the rest. Atlas is a tank turned DPS, able to pick up Rubble in order to increase his armor. His ability Landslide allows him to charge into combat, annihilating enemies with each one he uses, making the combo more powerful as he lands each and every blow of his.

Defensively he has his Rumblers, his final ability that allows him to call forth minions that will run around, annihilating any enemies before him, and in turn, allowing him to use his ability Tectonics to create a defensive wall he and his fellow squadmates can use to defend themselves. If this is something for you, you’ll need to know about the Relics to use in order to begin farming for his frame and where to farm them

Atlas Prime farming guide – Locations

Atlas Prime Blueprint – Relic: Lith D1

Those looking to obtain the Atlas Prime’s Blueprint will want to head into the Lith D1 relic, using it to obtain the Atlas Prime Blueprint, which comes out as a common drop. In order to obtain Lith Relics, you can farm them in the Voice, specifically, on Hepit in order to obtain them. Don’t worry, it’s a Capture-type mission, which makes it quick and painless.

Atlas Prime Neuroptics – Relic: Axi A6 and Neo A3

Here’s where things get a little trickier than they have been in the past. Atlas Prime’s Neuroptics can be farmed in two different locations, both Axi A6 and Neo A3. Those of you looking to obtain the Ainxi A6 and Neo A3 Relics can do so by heading to Marduk (Sabotage) to obtain both of these relics. Just remember, you’ll want to farm quite a few of them in order to earn them and then begin farming the part.

Atlas Prime Chassis – Relic: Meso M3

Those of you looking to farm the Atlas Prime Chassis blueprint, you’ll want to head into the Meso E3 Relic missions, which is quite common, but with an uncommon drop behind them. Those of you needing some of the relics can do so by heading over to Jupiter’s Defense Mission over on Io or to the Capture Mission on Ukko in the Void. You can obtain them from either, which should be relatively easy for those wanting quick in-and-out missions.

Atlas Prime Systems – Relic: Neo A3

If you are looking to farm the Atlas Prime Systems, you can head over to void fissure missions with a Neo A3 Relic. In order to obtain the relic, you can head over to Marduk in the Void, just as I mentioned earlier, which will also let you build up your stock of Axi A6 Relics for your Atlas Prime Neuroptics farming.

As you farm each of the blueprints, it’s never a bad idea to know how much it’s going to cost, what you’ll need to do in order to build Atlas Prime. In order to do so, you will want to farm up quite a few Cyrotic, Nitain Extracts, and Argon Crystals.
