Warframe is a fast-paced game where you control one of many bio-metal suits, known as Warframes. You will be pitted against a variety of dangerous monsters and other terrors as you explore the Orion System at the behest of Lotus. Fight off your enemies by yourself, or team up with others to take on the worst of them with friends. There are many different types of Warframes in this game, all suited to unique playstyles. With so many abilities, weapons and skills to choose from, there is a Warframe for every player.

The game allows you to fight many different bosses, monsters and enemies throughout the course of your adventures. Sometimes these foes will drop loot that can be used to further your progress in the game. One of these is the Zanuka Hunter, who drops Detron Barrels and Detron Receivers, which are quite rare and extremely useful. In this guide we cover how to summon a Zanuka Hunter so that you can quickly defeat it.

Spawning a Zanuka Hunter is no easy feat, and there are a few steps to force one into your game. Why you would want to fight such a tough boss is a question for another time, however. If you don’t have a Zanuka Hunter Beacon, which can be purchased from Baro Ki’Teer in the Concourse section of the Tenno Relay, you will need to follow these steps below.

  • Firstly, you will need to fight against the Corpus in five different Invasion missions.
  • After that, you will receive a Death Mark, which will allow you to trigger a Zanuka Hunter to spawn.
  • Next, make sure to have multiple players in the same mission who also have the same Zanuka Hunter Death Mark, to increase the chance that you will spawn one.
  • Lastly, wait for a message in your inbox from Alad V, the controller of these monsters, who will inform you that the Zanuka Hunter is on its way to destroy you.
