The Sacrifice Walkthrough

The Sacrifice Walkthrough

The quest is going to be announced this week, we will be updating this article as soon as the update is released.

Update: The quest has been released we are working on the walkthrough.

Keep in mind that I am not covering the lore here, I will only be covering the steps that you need to follow in order to complete the quest. It is better that you learn the story by your own. It is recommended that you use Octavia or any other invisible frame. I do it because I don’t like fighting enemies while focusing on the story.

Explore The Helmet

Upon starting the quest you will be given the objective to explore the helmet. Examine the helmet which will start the main quest.

Find The Traces

A normal mission will start, you will be headed to Lua where you might find sentients.

  • Scan the Sword – Scan the sword using your Synthesis Scanner
  • Explore Warframe Pieces – The pieces will be scattered around the area, just move around and you will find them. These pieces will be glowing.

Head To Foundry

Head to the foundry and do the required thing.

Explore Lua

Explore The Ruins – Nothing amazing here, run around to the objective.

Solve the Orokin Cypher – When you reach the objective you will find that there will be a new Cypher that has some weird symbols. You have to make the right combination in order to unlock the door. The solution (orokin signs) will be on walls.

When you solve the Orokin Cypher, sentients will spawn and start attacking you.

Another Orokin Cypher – Another cypher, but this time a difficult one. Solve it and a recording will play, after that extract.

Connect The Vitruvian

Install the part that you obtained earlier in the Orbiter, upon the installation the lights will start to flicker within a few seconds the Orbiter upgrade will be complete. Head to Foundry and you will be able to craft the Umbra Warframe. Equip Umbra, a clip will play where the Umbra will grope your operator.

Search for Umbra

Umbra is fighting enemies around the map, go to him. When you reach him, he will start attacking you, you have to use Void Blast to stun Umbra and press 5 to Enter his memory using Transference.

Game of Kumi – In this memory you will be lying on the bed, Ballas will talk a little bit to you. After that you will have to defeat Ballas in the Game of Kumi in order to progress.

Access The 3rd Vitruvian Entry

In this entry, Ballas will talk about the technology of frames, nothing interesting to do here. The clip will play and your quest progress will be recorded.

Pursue Umbra

When you enter the mission you will find dead corpus bodies everywhere. Umbra will be fighting the enemies, upon reaching Umbra a lockdown will come into effect. To disable the lockdown you will have to fight the mimics (sentients). Again head to the objective location and fight Umbra, fight using your operator and take down the Umbra shield. Now again enter the memory using transference which will take you to ballas for another boring game of Kumi.

Access the 3rd Vitruvian Entry

Click on the blue glowing sign in the transcript. When you click on the icon a video will play.

Confront Umbra

Find the Umbra Warframe

  • kill sentients,
  • take down umbra shields,
  • use transference to get in his memory


Return to Earth

In this mission you will get to confront Ballas. When you do that, Ballas will tell you how he is not even the enemy and the one who started all this. Kill the sentients around him. When you kill all the sentients, Umbra and Opertor will shove a sword in his stomach which will kill him.

When this is complete, Lotus will appear in a weird alien kinda suit which kind of ruined everything for me.


That is all, the quest is complete.

The Sacrifice Rewards

The quest is going to be announced this week, we will be updating this article as soon as the update is released.

In E3 2018, DE has confirmed that this is one of the best quest-lines that they have worked on. I believe what they have said because the Second Dream was something that blew my mind. It is amazing to see that how far a game can go with the free-to-play model without leeching money from their players.

Note: The walkthrough will cover the full story, so beware about the spoilers.
