How to Complete the Survival Challenge in Warframe

The Survival challenge in Warframe asks you to complete a Survival mission reaching at least 20 minutes before extracting. This would normally be difficult, but there are a few ways to make it easier. The main way is picking a good frame, of which two stand above the rest. These two frames are Khora and Hydroid.

What makes Khora and Hydroid uniquely equipped to handle this challenge is their mods, Pilfering Strangledome, and Pilfering Swarm. These cause any enemies trapped in Khora’s Strangledome or Hydroid Tentacle Swarm to drop additional loot, which includes Life Support packs. This will seriously help your chances of Survival while also pulling in any nearby enemies. You don’t necessarily need them per se, but any help is good help.

Other than frame choice, I highly suggest you run the Survival mission Wahiba on the planet Mars. This is one of the lowest level Survival missions and thus means the most chance of success. If you want to kill two birds with one stone, you can also run something like the mission Gabii on Ceres and pick up Orokin Cells for your troubles.

With some determination and possibly a friend or two, you should easily pick up the Survival challenge. Completing it will net you 7,000 Standing, some of the highest you can get in the game for a single challenge. For 20 minutes, that isn’t too bad. If you want to try and complete two challenges in one mission, check out our guide on how to get 20 kills in five seconds in Warframe, for the Bloodthirsty challenge.
