How to farm for Nano Spores in Warframe

Nano Spores can easily be found during missions that take place on Saturn, Eris, Neptune, and the Orokin Derelict. Normally you can acquire anywhere from 100-200+ Nano Spores simply from completing a mission on one of these locations. However, if you are planning on building an item like the Dera, Banshee Neuroptics, or any other blueprints that require Nano Spores to complete, you'll need to possibly farm up large amounts of Nano Spores.

The best way to farm for Nano Spores is to make your way to Eris, Neptune, Saturn, or the Orokin Derelict. Once on these planets, locate a Survival or Defense mission. These wave-based missions are perfect for farming for Nano Spores, as you will often earn upwards of 3,000 Nano Spores for every 5 waves that you complete. This means that you can play through ten waves of a Defense mission on one of the planets that we have listed above and earn upwards of 6,000 Nano Spores. While you can complete several waves of a Defense or Survival mission, it's honestly much easier to complete 10-15 waves and then restart if you're really trying to farm for Nano Spores. 

Farming for Nano Spores with Nekros equipped will also double the rate at which you earn Nano Spores, which will make farming for this item even easier.

Alternatively, if you don't feel like grinding for Nano Spores, you can also make your way into the Marketplace and purchase Nano Spores using Platinum.
