What Exactly Are Formas
- You can use a forma to a weapon, warframe or sentinel after it reached level 30. Then the weapon becomes forma'd.
- It adds a Polarity Slot to your weapon, warframe or setinel - the level drops to 0 and you'll need to re-level.
- The number of mod points it can hold is changed and the weapon overall efficiency.
Although you can get Formas in every Void Mission or you can get it as a rewarding every single void mission, the chances to get this special warframe from these mission are very low and while someone can receive it without even trying, others can get it only by intense farming. It is one of the Warframe's distinct characteristics to be dynamic and not being able to pin down a certain way of acquiring stuff. You can however obtain Forma faster by playing specific type of missions.
What Missions Should I Play To Get Formas?
The best mission to get the Forma Blueprint is Tower II Survival. Why is it more likely to get it in this mission? In this mission Forma drops on rotation A. So you can get it as a reward at 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 25 minutes and so on. The reason why this is the best mission to get Forma is because there are very few rewards on rotation A. Among them you have the Forma Blueprint. Assuming that most of the players can get play the Tower II Survival for 10 minutes you have basically two chances of getting Forma. If you can make it to 30 minutes you have six chances to get Forma's blueprint.
The next best mission to get Forma is Tower IV Defense.
Why is this not the best mission for farming Formas?
- The main reason is that in this mission you have a total of six possible rewards whilst on the previous one you have only five. So the probability to get Forma is clearly lower.
- Tower IV keys are harder to get and since it is tower IV it is harder to solo as well.
However, if tower IV keys are not a problem for you and you have a teammate with a decently moded Warframe and a decently moded weapon and, you don't like Survivals than this is the mission for you.
The next type of mission on our chart are actually two types of missions. Tower ONE Exterminate and Tower IV Capture. Both of them have six potential rewards, one of them being the Forma Blueprint. The Tower ONE Exterminate is slower, but much easier, while the latter can be done incredibly fast but it is a lot harder.
The last type of mission that can be found on our chart of Forma farming is Tower ONE Capture. This is similar to Tower IV Capture, it can be done pretty fast, but you have a total of seven potential rewards to receive. Tower III Exterminate and Tower III Sabotage - these two missions can reward you with a built Forma - no blueprint. The chances of getting it are significantly lower compared to the missions already mentioned as for Tower III Exterminate you have eight potential rewards and nine potential rewards for Tower III Sabotage.
If you have the Forma Blueprints but you don't have as many Orokin Cells, Neurodes or Neural Sensors, you can follow the guides below for how to farm these as well.
