  1. Update: All K-Drive races are now on the map and confirmed – Thanks community!

  2. I cannot see the third cave near Temple Fabrication Site

    1. If you’re talking about the lower-right one of the three (below the fishing cave and in-between the 2 confirmed K-Drive races), then don’t worry as that’s normal. It’s more like a cubby than a cave – it’s barely large enough to fit your Warframe. Not sure why DE labeled it as a cave.

      1. Any chance for a screenshot? It’s the last one I need for the achievement and I searched for an hour this evening.

    2. Neither can I.

    1. Thanks ! Will add that in as soon as I can.

    2. Added!

    1. Going to add that ASAP – Thanks for posting them! I also found one next to The Pearl which will be added soon too (the current purple one there is confirmed). Some big changes coming to map. Also sorry that your comment was held in moderation – Was automated for any comment with more than 2 links. Removed that restriction now (well moved it up to 20 which is as good as being removed).

    2. Added – Thanks again!

  3. Could you add Standing on the fish for turning them in?

    1. Going to add standing and scrap for each size as a separate table soon (or possibly extend out existing table if it doesn’t look too bad).

    2. Just a quick update – Fishing table is now updated for Scrap and Standing.

  4. might make a nicer map if the bounty areas and race areas had more different icons also if there was a static version of the map with all the race locations the same colour

    1. On my to-do list is to use the Solaris United symbol for the Bounties on the map (like it is in-game), but it’s lower priority while working on other content. Likely will attempt to do that at some point in next week. I might add a static version of map with all races on this page once all 22 are found: https://www.framemastery.com/k-drive-guide/

  5. Could you do the same table than for fishing but for mining ?

    1. You mean for the Standing you can receive from each gem? Or something else?

  6. Thank you so much for this mao, I have found it to be very invaluable! I appreciate all the hard work you put into this for all of us.

    1. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment and let me know it provided value for you – Comments like these make it worth it!

  7. Very useful, it makes looking for the active k-drive races such a breeze!

    1. Glad you liked it Demeryk 🙂

      P.S: Got a solid laugh at your choice of e-mail!

  8. Thank you for your work ! Does a fishe near cave entrances means that the cave is good for fishing as well ?

    1. Yes it means the cave is a good fishing spot – Sorry it isn’t more clear!

      1. BTW Ths small pond north east, east of the super cave is a very good fishing spot from my experience

    1. Update: All K-Drive races that exist are on the map now!

      Yes there are two missing – I know where both are, but I’m waiting to add them once they are confirmed so I can have their exact location in-game on the map plus be able to 100% confirm them. Thanks for posting!

  9. * That I’ve found so far.

  10. sTILL NO UPDATE FOR THE TWO MISSING RACES,

    1. One of them is already there (by Transit Depot) and the second is northeast by Reflector Control, just waiting for it to be an active race before it is added to map.

      1. Thank you

  11. thanks for the map. I have complete an achievement with you help!

    1. Congrats!

  12. Do the races rotate based on some predetermined scheme or is it totally random? cuz I’ve been waiting for 1 race to pop up so I can finish my achievement for about two weeks now.
    Not sure but the race I’m looking for is either the one directly under the toroid icon on spaceport, or the lonely race at the edge of the map near asta crater, 100% sure I’ve done every other race at least 2-3 times each now.

    1. It seems like it’s completely random – That race (called “Bomb the Spaceport”) has only shown up once I believe in the past month, maybe twice. Meanwhile River Run has shown up over 10 times in past month…

      1. Then it is the spaceport one then. Hope it pops up soon. Ty for the info.

        1. Lucky you – the race is live today!

          1. Yep Got my achievement finally. Thank you for all the dedication and hard work keeping this map updated ! I couldn’t have done it without you.

  13. Are all 30 caves on the map? It looks like I have all of them but my achievement sits at 29/30. Cant tell if my eyes arent working or if one is missing.

    1. All 30 are on map – There were issues with giving the achievement even if you had all 30 caves, though that was likely fixed by now. If you’re missing any, likely to be on edges on map or be some of the very small “caves” that are more like cubby holes (there’s 2 of those if I recall).

      1. Thanks FM, in the end I just had to go around to all of them, but I think like you said that the achievement took a while before it popped. Thanks for this map, extremely helpful.

  14. Your map work perfectly on Xbox One version 🙂

    1. That’s great to hear! Are you talking about the active K-Drive races too or just in general?

      1. All activity are the same on Xbox and pc, i can confirm

        1. That’s awesome, thank you for the information!

  15. AWESOME MAP! Thanks! Best i found.

    Only thing im missing is Lures needed for certain fish.
    Otherwise your map/guide is complete.

    Thank you very very much! 🙂

    1. Thanks Veno! I might have to find a way to add that in. I’m cautious of adding yet another column to the table since it’s already so massive, but might do so anyway. I appreciate you pointing that out!

      1. Not sure adding lures is really necessary since almost all of the the lures are specific to a single fish and are named the same as the fish. The common fish don’t need lures at all (even though you can technically buy them) since they’re easily found in large quantities without lures.

  16. this is helpful for console players as well. many props for this man.

  17. I’m on Xbox as well and can confirm the active races on PC match the active ones on console which is awesome.
    Do the active ones just change at reset or do they change more often (like every few hours or something)?

    1. That’s great to hear – They change once per day at reset (0:00 UTC).

  18. It would be really nice if there was a column for the bait that is necessary for specific Servofish. Obviously Synathid comes from Synathid bait, but Eye-Eye spawns from “Narrow-Spectrum bait” for example.

  19. FM, just ran a K-drive race on Xbox that’s ending point was at the 9PM position on an analog watch face right on what would be the western edge point of the Ustara Crater. The race itself was fairly straight with no major turns that I recall. The starting point must have been somewhere around 1-3PM on the other side N/NE/E of the crater. Sorry I cant be more specific, but it is definitely active. Counted as my 6th of 22 races.

    1. Disregard that, sorry. Starting location is the green dot south of Ustara Crater, west of what I call the “jellyfish lakes” (the red water locale on the map in that area). Anyways, it definitely is active.

      1. Bass – This race is already marked active on the map (that’s what the green dot means). Unless you’re just saying so we can confirm that Xbox races are same as PC? If so, thank you.

  20. How could u add a mining spot I found a really good one

  21. I also found a torrid in said spot but forgot which one

  22. I found that last cave for the map, by the lake to the top right(the squid looking one) go to the other side of the road by that K-Drive Race

  23. There seems to be tendencies for the basic ores (red veins) southwest is hesperon

  24. ASTA CRATER has a consistent good amount of minespot, might wanna add that on the map

  25. Have the Xbox races been separated from the PC races now? Or has the map not been updated for today? Because I have completely different active races than what is shown here.
    Meat and Greet and Lord of the Board were two I’ve found active on Xbox so far for today.

    1. The map says the latest date it’s been updated below it in the footnotes (uses UTC time), so you can see if it’s outdated there. The map was updated late today, apologies.

  26. This map is very useful for ‘Race Ace’ achievement. Thank you very much.

  27. Whel you put cold for fishing does that mean during the freezing cycle or just the cold cycle ?

  28. River Run is showing Active but it’s not there 🙁 Been waiting forever for this one and it’s only one I need…Sadness

    1. Sorry mate, map wasn’t updated today – you can always check the update date under the map.
