Argon Farming Made Easy
By ReaperOvSoles
Have you ever wished there was a better, more reliable way to get Argon Crystals? Well now there is.
The Basics
Argon Farming has always been an unreliable and tedious process. You go to the void, perhaps with a desecrate Nekros, and you run around the map looking for crystals. It takes about 20 minutes for a single run, and you may not even get the crystals you were after. However, there is a better way to do it. With this method, all you need is 5 minutes and a sentinel, for a reliably high chance every run. (There is still a chance you won't get any, but it's very slim)
What To Do
First, you are going to need to go to this mission right here.
Hepit, in the void. It is a low level capture mission, and perfect for what we're doing.

Next, equip a sentinel. It can be any sentinel, but if you have a Djinn with the Reawaken mod, you will be able to farm for as long as you have patience. You will need to add the following mods: Sacrifice and Spare Parts. Both should be max rank, for best results. This is my build.

Next, the weapons. It doesn't really matter what you use, but make sure you can complete the objective. The same goes for your Warframe, although if you have Nekros, you may be able to get more crystals per run.

Next, begin the mission. Find a room with a death orb wiith a laser, or just a laser plate. (If it is a death orb, you will find it convenient to destroy the rotation plate first.)

Stand in the laser.

Soon, you will die, and your sentinel will revive you, destroying itself. This will give you 45% chance to get an Argon Crystal. If you have a Djinn, this is why. With most sentinels, you will need to die and revive yourself to bring them back, but if you have a Djinn and you have Reawaken equipped on it, it auto revives after 90 seconds.

You can do this entire process, including finishin the mission, in about 5 minutes.

I just run void capture with saryn destroying everything with molt and I usually leave with 1-3 argons. But this is an interesting method, good job.
