During the Black Seed Scourge event, there will be a mission highlighted on Venus. You must complete the mission 3 times. In order to complete the mission you must capture both targets, unlike your regular captures where one is enough to complete it. Also, you must do this with only a melee weapon equipped. The game will tell you this if you attempt to do the mission with any other weapons.

Though I have not confirmed it, these should also count towards your

XtowersAny idea what level you need to be to complete the mission? I know some of these weekend missions need you to be a higher level or you can't complete it easily.

PhatDaemienI ran this one with a lvl 30 frame with a double mod capacity, lvl 30 melee with normal mod capacity and my lvl 18 kubrow. They weren't terribly difficult but I saw a lot more eximus each time I went through and the ospreys suck as the further you go there seemed to be a complete lack of energy orbs. I did do it solo, I imagine in a group moderately equipped it would have been a breeze. I only attempted Jupiter's missions once due to time constraints and it seemed to be about as difficult as the third one of these so I imagine they are a lot harder to finish. The 50k credits is nice though smile

GeoffistophelesVenus and Jupiter are pretty easy. Europa, however, is an absolute pain, as the capture targets are nullifiers that sense you a mile away and can run like the wind, and if one of them gets away, mission failure.

I opted for an infinite invisibility Loki (max power efficiency, min. 180% power duration and Energy Siphon) with Rush included so I could run him down, then a Catalyst Dragon Nikana with Decisive Judgement, though I imagine any properly stanced/catalysted melee weapon would do the trick. Lockdowns were my friend, since I could them catch up and kill at my leisure.

If that wasn't working, and it came close to that point, the next option was a high duration Valkyr. Stay in Hysteria and windsprint through the level while invincible, slide attack through the shield and wail on him from there.

PhatDaemienYou have to get the Venus nav segment from the assassination mission on Mars (defeat Vor). Once you have opened up Venus, it is on the outer ring of the planet so I would assume you have not either opened up the planet or have not completed the missions leading to it.
