The Waverider quest in Warframe is an optional mission you can miss, but you definitely don't want to let this one pass you by.
Completing the Waverider quest involves gaining a better understanding of the Vent Kids, but more importantly, it also earns you the Yareli Warframe blueprint.
However, you’ll need to brush up your K-Rider skills and complete several quests to obtain the Yareli blueprint, and that’s before even starting to manufacture Warframe's Yareli parts. Here's everything you need to know about how to get Yareli in Warframe.
Warframe Waverider quest
You’ll need the K-Rider to start the Waverider quest, so if you haven’t finished the Thursby quest yet, go ahead and do that. You’ll receive a call from Roky once you have the Waverider. Follow the quest to the Vent Kids hideout, and you’ll eventually be tasked with completing a book of quests to unlock the Yareli comic.
Each page of the book has a set of Waverider challenges to complete during one of the Vent Kid races. Most of them are fairly easy, though a few might take more than one attempt.
Warframe Waverider quest page 1
The first page is essentially a tutorial for how to do tricks.
- Earn 2000 Vent Kids Standing in a single K-Drive race
- Copter x 5
- 50 Point Grindy
- Kill 5 enemies with a Secondary Weapon while riding a K-Drive
- Perform 5 5x Combos
Warframe Waverider quest page 2 - Frontside Clutch
Things get a bit more difficult on page two.
- Earn 2400 Vent Kids Standing in a single K-Drive race
- Frontside Rollout x 3
- 50 Point Frontside Clutch x 5
- Get 5 headshot kills with a Secondary Weapon while riding a K-Drive
- Earn 500 points in a K-drive trick chain
You’re asked to complete five Frontside Clutch moves, which requires good timing and a specific layout. Frontside Clutch is a mid-air move you can use the left mouse button right directional input to pull off (or the corresponding inputs on your PS4 or Xbox controller). For it to count in this challenge, you need to release the clutch, i.e. end the move, before your board hits the ground again.
The best place to do Frontside Clutch moves is a flat area with no obstacles nearby. You should be able to loop around in a wide circle to stay in that area, then keep pulling off the clutch until you get five under your belt.
Warframe Waverider quest page 3
- Earn 3000 Vent Kids Standing in a single K-Drive race
- Nose Planket x 5
- 50 Point Backside Skyrocker x 5
- 5 Slam Shockwave Kills
- Earn 1000 points in a K-drive trick chain
The Warframe shockwave kill currently has a very small working hitbox. If you don’t land directly on the enemy, you’ll likely deal minimal amounts of damage.
Warframe Waverider quest page 4
- Earn 3400 Vent Kids Standing in a single K-Drive race
- Backside Clutch x 5
- 50 Tail Clutch Planker x 5
- Obtain five seconds of air on a K-Drive
- Earn 1500 points in a K-drive trick chain
The best way to get five seconds of air on the K-Drive is going to the south part of the map. Between the Transit Depot and Spaceport is a chunk of rock jutting out over the Orb Vallis, and if you speed up and charge your jump right before flying off the edge, you should be able to get the necessary five seconds.
Warframe Waverider quest page 5
Page five is challenging, but there’s nothing particularly noteworthy about the requirements here.
- Earn 3600 Vent Kids Standing in a single K-Drive race
- Tail Spinja x 5
- Earn 2000 Points in a K-Drive trick chain
- Keep a K-Drive trick chain alive for 20 seconds
- Perform 5 10x combos
Warframe Yareli parts
Completing the Waverider quest unlocks the Yareli blueprint — but, as always, that’s just the start. You’ll also need to acquire the Yareli component blueprints, which are obtained in a different way.
Building the Warframe Bash Lab
Head to the Clan Dojo and search for the Bash Lab. Select and build it, once you have the necessary materials. For smaller clans, the base cost is:
- 1000 Credits
- 450 Ferrite
- 250 Circuits
- 100 Thermal Sludge
- 1 Forma
It multiplies as usual the larger the clan is.
All the Warframe Yareli parts
Head to the back of the Bash Lab and interact with the machine there to begin researching Yareli parts. You can research the Yareli Chassis, Yareli Neuroptics, and Yareli Systems simultaneously, but it’ll take 24 hours to finish.
Once that’s all finished, you can finally buy the Yareli parts blueprints.
- 10,000 Credits
- 1 Mutagen Mass
- 1 Morphics
- 500 Polymer Bundle
- 1,000 Salvage
- 10,000 Credits
- 1 Detonite Injector
- 1 Neurodes
- 500 Rubedo
- 1,000 Alloy Plate
- 10,000 Credits
- 1 Fieldron
- 1 Gallium
- 500 Circuits
- 1,000 Nano Spores
