Looking for more Operational Supply Standing? You need to craft some Infested Catalyst in Warframe Operation Plague Star to get the most standing out of Bounty missions.

Just a few hours ago, Warframe received the anticipated Nidus update, which brings back the Operation Plague Star to the game with special rewards.

Achieving the rewards require players to spend Standing, and in order to get them, you need to complete Bounty missions.

While completing each Bounty mission in Plague Star will reward you an amount of Operational Supply Standing, you can add up to this amount by using Infested Catalyst during the mission.

If you manage to use four Infested Catalyst during a Bounty mission, you will earn a 2000 bonus Standing as well as four Infest Hemocye, each valued at 250 Standing. If it sounds tempting enough, let’s see how you can achieve Infested Catalyst.

How to Get Infested Catalyst in Warframe

First of all, you need to do research about the Infested Catalyst at Clan Dojo to get its Blueprint. In order to start the research, you will need 500 Credits, 21.5K Ferrite, 11.5K Plastids, 19.5K Nano Spores, and 14 Neurodes.

Once you have the Blueprint, you can craft an Infested Catalyst with 500 Credits, 2.3K Ferrite, 500 Plastids, and 1.8K Nano Spores.

As you may know, researching in Warframe is a time-consuming process, which means it could take you a day to achieve the Infested Catalyst.

Once you have the Infested Catalyst, you can use it at Thrax Toxin mixer up to four times during a Bounty mission in Operation Plague Star.

Warframe is now available for free on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
