Tellurium Farm 2024 (Locations & Missions): Warframe - ProGameTalk (2024)

This unique metal that has only been found within asteroids and deep space rocks is valuable and used for some of the costliest equipment and items.

This resource is one of the hardest to get due to it not being on the lists of a planet’s resources, which makes players wonder where to get Tellurium when they need it.

Tellurium is used to craft Warframes, Archwing parts, Weapons and more and is considered to be important as players progress through the game.

“This rare metal is foreign to the Origin System and can only be found in asteroids that have made the long journey from the stars”

How To Get Tellurium?

There are two methods to getting Tellurium in Warframe, which are to either kill enemies in Grineer Sealab maps or to make use of a mod called Spare Parts.

Killing enemies in Grineer Sealab maps has a rare chance for Tellurium to drop, while Spare Parts triggers every 15 seconds for a chance to provide you with a bonus resource.

Combining both killing enemies and having a Sentinel equipped with Spare Parts will give you a good chance to get Tellurium. (This resource can also be obtained as a daily login reward)

Where to Farm Tellurium?

Tellurium drops are possible in Archwing missions and Grineer Sealab maps which has been proven but at times it has seemed like they rarely drop.

Uranus is a great choice as it has Grineer Sealab tilesets, especially the popular Ophelia mission which allows you to farm several needed resources.

It is possible to obtain Tellurium from Fortuna bounties as one of the rewards from the different reward tables available.

Using the Spare Parts mod that equips into sentinels, players may obtain Tellurium when the effects of the mod occur.

Best Tellurium Farming Missions

1) Ophelia (Uranus)

Ophelia appears to be the best place to farm Tellurium which does not require you to go on an Archwing mission or use a sentinel with any special mods.

Not only will you have a chance at Tellurium drops, but you also get other resources that you will need later when farming Tellurium in Ophelia.

Easy Tellurium farming can be achieved if you have a good squad to farm with, mostly consisting of at least one Nekros and another Warframe that can force loot out of enemies.

2) Salacia (Neptune)

Tellurium can drop in Archwing missions by a small chance when killing enemies, one of the best places to farm Tellurium is on Salacia.

Salacia is an Archwing mobile defense mission and is one of the best places to farm Tellurium since a lot of enemies can be spawned by killing one after the other.

The enemies in Salacia are not that hard to kill and if you are well equipped then you can kill enemies faster, resulting in a higher chance for Tellurium drops.

One of the easiest ways is to use Itzal since it can use its Cosmic Crush ability to pull enemies in and damage them, dispatching the enemies and continuously pulling items toward you.

Doing a public mission or bringing a team with you will increase the chance of getting Tellurium since more enemies will spawn during the mission based on how many players are present.

Tellurium Spare Parts MethodTellurium Farm 2024 (Locations & Missions): Warframe - ProGameTalk (4)

A few patches earlier, Spare Parts was a mod that triggered when your Sentinel was destroyed and this would provide you with a chance to get a bonus resource. (Including Tellurium)

Spare Parts has now been altered and instead of dropping a resource when your Sentinel dies, this now causes your Sentinel to mark an enemy target.

Enemies that are marked will become 200% more likely to drop a resource, which is connected to where you are farming. (Make sure you are on a mission where Tellurium can drop)

The duration of marked enemies will be 5 seconds, which makes it important to kill them whenever this has been triggered.


Using the Spare Parts is a good way to make Tellurium drop and this is best done when fighting enemies in a Grineer Sealab Tileset.

When farming Tellurium on Ophelia, going with a group will make your chances of obtaining Tellurium better as more enemies means more loot.

Tellurium will be required with a lot of equipment later as you advance throughout the game, so it is important to farm in missions that drop it when you are farming other resources for later.
