Plastids Farm 2024 (Best Locations & Missions): Warframe

Plastids are known to be an uncommon resource but are often obtained in small quantities, making farming a lot of them necessary for crafting certain items.

One of the best things about Plastids is that it is available on several planets, giving you the option of choosing what other resource you wish to farm.

Several Warframes and weapons require Plastids as a crafting resource, making it good to have enough for later when you progress.

How To Get Plastids?

Plastids are obtained by defeating enemies on Planets that include it in their drop list. They can be obtained on 5 different planets, which are Eris, Phobos, Pluto, Saturn, and Uranus.

These are Eris, Uranus as well as Saturn and all of them have Dark Sector missions that provide a higher Resource Drop Chance boost.

Aside from defeating enemies, you can destroy containers, open Storage Lockers, and even find Plastid Carapace containers that can be broken to get the resource.

Plastids Locations

Among the five different planets, Eris is considered to be one of the best places to obtain Plastids thanks to the Dark Sector missions that it possesses.

Following Eris, other choices would be on Uranus or Saturn due to Plastids being their secondary resources.

Pluto and Phobos would be considered good planets to farm Plastids but some prefer a resource dropping more often than difficult planets with Dark Sectors.

Best Plastids Farm Missions

1) Assur (Uranus)

Assur is mainly tied with Ophelia due to the abundance of resources on both missions, although there is slightly a tilt when it comes to being the best place to farm Plastids since Assure is a Dark Sector mission.

Being a Dark Sector mission, Assur provides players with a 25% increased resource drop rate which not only helps farming Plastids, but it also helps farm other important resources such as Polymer Bundle.

Unlike its counterpart Ophelia, Assur pits you against the infested, which proves to be easy to kill, especially when camping since they walk right into your location.

2) Ophelia (Uranus)

Ophelia is a classic place to farm not just Plastids, but also important resources such as Polymer Bundle, Detonite Ampule, and Gallium.

Although this mission is not a Dark Sector mission, being a survival mission alone proves to reward players with quite a large reward of resources.

A good combination is usually a Nekros with Hydroid because Hydroid’s Pilfering Swarm can cover a whole passage, forcing enemies to get killed and have loot forced out while Nekros’ Desecrate provides even more drops.

3) Piscinas (Saturn)

Piscinas is an Infested controlled world and being a Dark Sector mission, it grants a 20% boost to resource drop rate, tilting your odds of getting a little bit more from farming.

There are a few spots where you can camp which can suit a squad with the right farming Warframes, allowing a well-put squad to farm more than usual.

A few containers and storage lockers may be found lying around and can be if you destroy them as you find a good spot to camp.

4) Zeugma (Phobos)

Zeugma is not our first choice since you can farm a lot more plastids on other planets, but this mission offers you the chance to get Plastids just as you pass Mars.

If you’re trying to figure out how to get Plastids early if you have just started out, Phobos may be the best option for you.

Phobos Plastids drop rate may not be that high, but it is guaranteed that you will eventually be able to farm a good amount.

Being a Dark Sector mission, you gain quite a good chance of getting Plastid drops due to the 25% resource drop chance.

Purchasing Plastids

A small amount of Plastids (300) can be purchased from the in-game Market aboard your orbiter for 30 Platinum.

This is however not considered to be worth it since 30 Platinum can be used for trading instead and you can easily farm Plastids in the abovementioned missions.


If desperately needed, there is a chance to get Plastids on Phobos early on, but Saturn or Uranus are better choices for others.

Figuring out which is the best place to farm Plastids is a big step and will benefit you later on when you need them for either research or crafting.

Keep in mind that you will need lots of Plastids if you plan on crafting better gear as they are required for many blueprints.
