The Index, Neptune – Medium Endurance

The index is a corupus arena hosted by Nef Anyo on Neptune, you have to fight with Corpus enemies and grab the points they drop. There are 3 options to choose from, low, medium or High. Both have their extra modifiers and stuff.

RiskWagerProfitPoint Target
Low‍ 45,000‍ 75,00025 Points
Medium‍ 60,000‍ 135,00050 Points
High‍ 75,000‍ 200,000100 Points

Most of the people around will advise you to run Low or High Risk mission, but the best one is medium. High is difficult due to the financial stress and the low one is not rewarding enough. Medium Risk in doable though for SOLOs if you have good weapons and the right build for your tanky frame.

Frames that can Solo Index

  • Rhino Prime
  • Inaros
  • Mesa –
  • Ash with Fatal Teleport

Weapons to use

  • High Range Melee such as Orthos Prime or Atterax
  • High Damage Shotgun (Tigris Prime) or a Rifle (Sybaris Prime)

Earlier it used to be really easy using Volt and Telos Boltace spinning around and killing enemies at ease while your tanky team mate runs around and collects the points. Too bad they nerfed the Telos boltace *cries in a corner*.

If you buy a credit booster you will get double the credits as reward with the same investment. Whenever I am low on credits, I buy a credit booster on weekends and grind out the medium index with my clan mates.

This mode is not recommended for SOLO since there would be specters running around making the mission really tough for you.

Best SOLO Credit Farm Mission

Index is not suitable for most players around playing SOLO because it requires proper setup and you have to keep an eye on the timer. If you are the one who likes playing SOLO without having any stress around, hieracon is the way to go.

Dark Sector Hieracon

Before Index came out, Hieracon was my go to place for farming credits. Hieracon is the best place to farm credits, you just have to get in, deploy an excavator, defend it for a while and extract.

It is recommended that you run this mission SOLO because no one would extract with you after running one single excavator. People join Hieracon mostly for farming Axi and Neo relics.

  • Without Credit Booster: 25k
  • With Credit Booster: 50k

Best Frame for Hieracon

  • Frost Prime Icy Avalanche Build
  • Limbo Duration and Range Build

Best Weapons for Hieracon

Take anything you like that can kill enemies of 35-40 level. I love using my Orthos Prime and Ignis Wraith with CC+CD Riven.
