Best Warframes For The Questline
The Hidden Messages mission lets you discover the memories of Mirage while letting you acquire the components of Mirage upon completion and unlocking the main blueprint in the market in the end. All of the mission requires you to run and kill infested enemies in the Infested Ship tileset. They are basically weak against slash, heat, gas, corrosive, and blast attacks, so any weapons with those or Warframes that have AoE abilities will do the trick.
- Mesa: with her peacemakers she can quickly deal with enemies coming your way, although keep in mind that you need to keep moving since the infested like to attack up close and personal.
- Ember: Bring the rain of fire on infested enemies reducing them to ashes, prioritize ancient units that can quickly drain your energy making you defenseless against the incoming horde of infested.
- Wukong: Rather than waiting for the infested to come at you, combining Celestial Twin and Primal Fury will take damage towards them. His twin will also equip the legendary iron staff dealing impact and slash damage.
- Nova: Using her ability Molecular Prime can greatly reduce enemies speed which is a great disadvantage against infested enemies and they detonate upon death with a blast damage, killing other infested as they usually attack in groups, which also create a chain reaction, triggering more blast damage and killing more infested. The ability also increases all sources of damage against the primed enemies.
