Warframe The Circuit Duviri (Rewards, Steel Path & Reward Path)
The Circuit is one of the game modes that become available for players who wish to play through some of The Duviri Paradox content.
This sets players in the undercroft, where they must use certain Warframes and weapons to complete challenges, which come in the form of game modes.
Players can team up in Normal or Steel Path difficulties and attempt to reach higher tiers to get prizes based on how much they progress.
How To Unlock The Circuit?
The Circuit is unlocked once you have completed The Duviri Paradox quest, which is where the Undercroft is first introduced to players.
Once players have unlocked The Circuit, they can team up with other players to fight enemies and complete objectives in the Undercroft.
The Circuit Reward Path
Every weekly reset will allow players to choose new rewards that they can obtain and the first thing you will need to do is choose a path.
This will provide you access to a certain Warframe as well as its parts and other materials once you complete objectives in the Undercroft.
At the end of each session, you will be able to obtain the rewards for your progress based on what tier you have reached.
The Circuit Steel Path
When playing The Circuit mode and switching over to Steel Path, you will be able to select two rewards that you can obtain at Tier 5 and Tier 10.
These will be the Incarnon Genesis upgrades, which can later be used to upgrade specific weapons when you speak to Cavalero on the Crysalith.
Incarnon Genesis allows players to take a weapon and provide it with different upgrades based on what they select when the weapon is ready to evolve.
Each week, you will be able to select 2 of 5 different Incarnon Genesis rewards and this gives you until the end of the week to reach Tier 10 to claim both of them.
How The Circuit Works?
Once you begin The Circuit, you will be matched with other players who you will work with to complete missions in the Undercroft.
You will start by choosing one of the available Warframes in Teshin’s Cave as well as your primary, secondary and melee weapons.
When you are ready, you will need to head through the portal and this will take you to the Undercroft, which later sets you off on missions.
The Circuit Progress
Completing a mission will provide you with Circuit Progress, which will allow you to proceed to each tier once the number of points required is met.
This will allow you to claim the reward for whatever tier you have reached, which eventually is how you get the Tier 5 and Tier 10 drops.
The best way to get Circuit Progress is to complete as many Undercroft missions in The Circuit as possible with each run.
Circuit Progress is gained in the following amounts:
- Stage 1 – 100 Circuit Progress
- Stage 2 – 110 Circuit Progress
- Stage 3 – 125 Circuit Progress
- Stage 4 – 145 Circuit Progress
- Stage 5 and onwards – 170 Circuit Progress
List of Undercroft Missions
When you are in the Undercroft, you will be able to play different missions which are all selected at random and have specific objectives.
You can get the following missions when running The Circuit:
- Excavation – Excavate 300 Cryotic (3 Excavators)
- Exterminate – Kill all enemies
- Defense – Defend against 5 waves of enemies
- Survival – Survive for 5 minutes
- Void Flood – Seal 5 Void ruptures
Every mission in The Circuit will provide you with the option to make your Warframe stronger, which is by collecting Decree Fragments.
You will be able to obtain a Decree for each mission completed but finding 3 Decree Fragments will also provide you with an extra one.
The total amount of Decree Fragments are combined, making it easy to obtain the Decree when all players search for them.
The Circuit Rewards
Once you have completed each tier, you will be rewarded with the reward that has been listed down for each one, allowing you to obtain all rewards for each tier once you reach Tier 10.
These will be claimed once you open The Circuit again, which will prompt the screen to show you what you have obtained.
Additionally, you can get Rune Marrow when you explore the Undercroft and destroy Runic Compacts that are spread around each stage.
The Circuit Stuck Enemies
Players may sometimes encounter one of the common The Circuit Bugs that can ruin a session but there are also workarounds.
Some enemies may become stuck in the ground and prevent you from progressing, this can be dealt with using abilities, damage from Decrees or luring them out.
Sometimes you can lure the enemies out and hit them with AOE attacks, which can make them glitch out of the land, allowing you to kill them.
The Circuit is a great way for players to obtain a ton of rewards for completing some of the easier missions that were brought by The Duviri Paradox.
Incarnon Genesis was newly added with the update and is only obtainable from completing The Circuit Steel Path where you need to reach Tier 5 and 10.
Since this resets weekly, you will have more than enough time to reach the highest tier as long as you finish as many missions as possible, which can be done in 1 or 2 days.
