Capturing an Eidolon in Warframe is difficult especially for a new player, who doesn’t know what to do.

The basics of capturing any Eidolon is simple enough and you will be able to understand it after the first capture. You will need to find 2 Eidolon Lures. It is a strange flying mechanism that you need to find in Grineer camps and hack it. Then you will need to charge both lures with 3 Vomvalysts. These are little flying Eidolons that you have to destroy, and when they will go into their spectral form let them charge into one of the Lures.

When you finally charged Lures and found one of the big Eidolons, you will need to fight it. Destroy its shields with beams, destroy special points on its limbs and joints called Synovia, kill smaller Eidols that will try to heal it. Eventually, you will defeat the Eidolon and with both Lures near it, you will be able to accomplish the capturing process.
