Research and Build Cephalon Cy in Warframe

Warframe’s new Rising Tide update opens the floodgates of shipbuilding in preparation for the launch of Empyrean. When Empyrean does finally launch, Warframe players will need to build their new starships to take them out into the deep and dark recesses of space. For that, they will need the AI called Cephalon Cy and in this guide, we will show you how to research and build Cephalon Cy in Warframe.

Research and Build Cephalon Cy in Warframe

One of the new Ships players can build is Railjack, an ancient piece of technology. Getting your hands on the Railjack involves multiple processes. The process of building the Railjack is a cooperative effort. To build the Railjack you need Cephalon Cy. Cephalon Cy is an AI companion which will send you on various missions to help you build the Railjack.

Along with the new ships, many new crafting resources have also made their way to the game.

To start work on building Cephalon Cy, you will first need to unlock the Dry Dock for the Railjack. Unlocking the Dry Dock requires a Clan to make the time and resource investment, but once that’s done you can get started. So if you are not in any clan, now would be the best time to consider joining one.

There are two parts to building the Cephalon Cy, the first component is a Clan unlock, but the cost of the initial blueprint unlocks for the Clan members scales based on the size of the Clan. The values below assume the lowest possible values:

  • 4000 Credits
  • 5 Mutagen Mass
  • 5 Detonite Injectors
  • 5 Fieldron Samples
  • 2 Orokin Cells

Once you and your clan unlock the blueprints for the Cephalon Cy, you can now start working on building your own.  You will need to purchase BP from within the Clan Dojo for 35,000 credits. Then head to the Foundry and start your construction. Following sources will be required to build the Cephalon Cy:

  • 25,000 Credits
  • 5 Mutagen Mass
  • 5 Detonite Injectors
  • 5 Fieldron
  • 2 Orokin Cells

And this is how your Cephalon Cy will be built. The Rising Tide update for Warframe has also introduced some other requirements for building the Railjack battleship other than the Cephalon Cy. Your AI companion will send you on various quests to build the Railjack, with each part requiring a bulk delivery of resources and 12 hours to repair.

There are several new resources in the game that you will need to farm to build certain components. Carbides go into various parts of the engine. Cubic Diodes are used for the repair of the Fuselage. There are also other requirements that are farmed via the mining mini-game in both open-world areas.
