RETURN OF VEN’KRA TEL AND SPRAG
Ven’kra Tel and Sprag await you in Break Narmer Missions, Tenno! Be ready to take on these bosses as they attempt to stop Kahl.
Ven’kra Tel can be encountered in the Prison Break mission, while Sprag is hiding out in the Junk Run mission. These fights are optional – once you are in the Break Narmer mission, seek them out if you so choose in between the main mission objectives!
Their weapon skins can be procured from the in-game Market. Flatten your enemies with the Renok Hammer Skin and take vicious, clean, and precise shots with the Avex Sniper Skin.
The Ven’kra Tel and Sprag models have also been updated in the Orokin Sabotage mission.

Captura Changes & Fixes:
- Added a “Weapons Enabled” toggle to disable weapons on Operator/Drifter.
- The options panel will now go transparent when the cursor is not hovering over it, so that you can see scene details when you are not actively making adjustments.
- Added a “This setting needs to be ON to use this feature: Film Grain” pop-up when attempting to change Grain while the Film Grain option is toggled off in the options panel.
- Fixed changes made to the Fade option for cameras in Captura not saving upon exiting the camera settings.
- Armor attachments (Chest, Arms, Legs) and Syandanas are now available to be equipped on the Drifter!
- This is the first step towards bringing more customization options to the Drifter. For transparency on the process, the team is required to go through every single attachment and modify it for the skeleton of the Drifter (which includes adjusting those attachments for each suit as well, not just the base). With hundreds of armor pieces and Syandanas, the process is long. Which is why we started with the Drifter since their skeleton is similar to Warframes. Operator attachments may come down the line later, along with our continuation development towards applying Operator suits to Drifters.
- Updated the Operator/Drifter customization screen:
- Squadmates icons in the Player List UI will now show the Warframe/Operator they are playing by default, instead of their Glyphs.
- There is now a “Show Teammate Glyphs Instead of Icons” option in the Interface Options to swap back to Glyphs if desired.
- Operator icons will not show to players who have not completed The Second Dream Quest.
- Made the following changes to the UI pop-up notifications for pickups:
- Added a UI pop-up notification for Voidplumes.
- Updated the UI pop-up notification with a new look and flare. The pop-up now includes who on the team picked up the item (includes Syndicate Medallions and Voidplumes).
- Made changes to the Auto Install Mods logic on Warframes:
- Auto Install valued survivability like health, shields and armor far above all else. These changes value “Ability” stats like Duration and Range just below survivability, choosing Mods like Stretch just after Vitality and Redirection.
- Also added value to certain beginner QOL Mods, for players that don’t have base Ability stat Mods yet.
- Added FX flare to the Syndicate Ranks icons in the Syndicate screens.
- Made several updates to the Haunted Interior Decorations – increased the spooky!
- Added “Speed” stat in UI for Revenant’s Reave, and Gauss’ Mach Rush, and passive.
- Made slight tweaks to Caliban’s audio mix.
- Changed the Azima’s Alt-Fire disc maximum duration to 30 seconds.
- In Update 32, we set this to 11 seconds as a reaction to players using the Azima with a very specific Mod configuration which resulted in a math bug and the disc unintentionally lasting over 5 minutes. That kind of AFK strategy is not what we want to encourage in Warframe. After further review and reading feedback, we agreed with the feedback that 11 seconds is too short and cuts into what you could achieve with legitimate Modding. With the new duration of 30 seconds we hope to strike a compromise between having your Mods and Abilities matter, without returning to an entirely AFK gameplay strategy.

As reported here: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1328361-weekly-veiled-riven-cipherweekly-archon-shard-not-available-fixed/
