Warframe Lephantis Location
Lephantis is a boss for the infected faction, so they can be found on the Orokin Derelict tileset for Deimos. To fight them, you will need to craft a Derelict Assassination key which will let you access the Assassination Targets.
To manufacture this you will first need 7500 Credits, 5 Lephantis Nav Coordinates, 4000 Nano Spores, 1000 Salvage, and 100 Circuits. All of these resources are accessed in a slew of different places in-game, but the Lephantis Nav Coordinates can be farmed through any Orokin Derelict mission. Once you've got your key, you're ready to take the fight to Lephantis.

Warframe Lephantis: How To Kill Lephantis?
Lephantis has a few mechanics you need to understand before trying to murder them. Firstly, they have three different heads which have their own weapons to watch for. The Infested Corpus uses poison grenades that bypass your shields, the Infested Grineer has a giant scythe for melee attacks, and the Ancient Infested head launches fire spores which explode on impact.
Lephantis also a mechanic to reduce the damage they take, which is a cap on how much a single shot can do. This means that weapons with high fire-rate are your best choice, and you should avoid weapons with high single-shot damage like snipers. They are additionally immune to status effects.
When the fight begins, Lephantis's heads will break through the ground individually and attempt to attack you. Make sure to move around often to avoid the poison clouds from the grenades stay away from the melee attack. To damage Lephantis, you will need to wait for one of the attacks and shoot the marked weak spots on the heads. You can't damage them any other way, so make sure all your shots count during the fight. If you need more ammo or energy, there will be some normal enemies running around for you to kill.
Once you've dealt enough damage to Lephantis, the floor will break, and you fall into a cavern and begin fighting all their heads at once. The best method here is by focusing a single head at once, as you need to kill all of them to win the fight. We suggest going for the poison or fire heads as the scythe attack is easier to dodge in the cavern. You'll still need to focus the weak spots, but once all three heads are down the mission will be done.
Victory will reward you with a component blueprint for the Nekros Warframe, and killing a head can cause it to drop Warframe Neurodes or Orokin Cells.
That's all for our guide on how to defeat the Warframe Lephantis boss, and now you should have an idea of how to access the fight and win it for the rewards.
