Warframe Eximus: How To Farm Eximus Enemies

There are many ways to farm the Warframe Eximus enemies for their resources or for the completion of challenges. One of the simpler ways is by taking part in endless missions like Defence and Survival, where Eximus enemies will show up after a certain amount of time. The longer you take part in one of these missions, the more chance of them showing up, but it will get progressively more difficult to manage, so playing with some allies or preparing will help you out.

A way to guarantee that you come across Eximus enemies is by taking part in Sorties (which are sets of three special missions) with the Eximus Stronghold modifier. You'll need to finish a quest called The War Within before you unlock Sorties, but with the modifier tacked on you should carve through tonnes of Eximus in no time. 

The Void also one of the best places on the star chart for facing off with Eximus enemies, as they show up frequently in certain higher-level tile sets in the Orokin Towers. Any of the above methods should ensure you'll come across plenty of these enemies.
