Cryptographic ALU is a special resource which is key for crafting the Razorback Cipher gear, which is a vital piece of equipment during the Razorback Armada invasion events, letting you access a specific console to complete the mission. To craft the item, you will need 1250 Credits, 1500 Polymer Bundles, three Gallium, and four Cryptographic ALU. This resource is only available from specific Razorback Armada events, so you won't be able to farm it every day and will need to wait for the alerts that one of these events has begun.

Like we said, the Cryptographic ALU resource is only available during the Razorback Armada events, dropping from the Corpus Archwing or Corpus Empyrean enemies. The best method for farming this resource is the Mobile Defence mission on Salacia, Neptune.

This is recommended for players between level 27 and 32, so you won't be able to take part in this during the earlier parts of your Warframe experience. As this mission requires you to defend a certain point against unlimited enemies, you can gain a tonne of resources as long as you continue to kill enemies. The Corpus Archwing enemies are the ones you will need to look out for here, and after a successful mission, you'll likely gain at least four, which is the amount you need to craft the Razorback Cipher. 

 

The next best place for this resource, is the Sabotage mission on Galiliea, Jupiter. This mission is for lowers levels, at 15-20, but it will net you less of the Cryptographic ALU resource overall. 

That's all for our breakdown on how to farm Cryptographic ALU in Warframe, and now you know what it's used for, and the best ways to earn it.

We also have a rundown of how to farm Scintilliant in Warframe, which lets you craft powerful weaponry.
