Mission Types

Catalog_icon.png Cartography Icon-Exploration.png Exploration
Making maps has never been more fun... or more dangerous! Travel into the untamed wilds of Nexus and chart territory for your faction. Nexus is chock full of secret places, and you'll find every one! Use a combination of technology and agility to access hidden locations!
Icon-Rescue.png Expedition Icon-SWAT.png Operations
The uncharted frontier awaits! Strike out into the great unknown, making sure to explore every last inch of the map. Cowards need not apply. Exploring isn't just about climbing mountains. Sometimes you gotta gear up, buckle down, and get a job done. Skills definitely pay the bills.
Icon-Holdout-Conquer.png Scavenger Hunt Icon-Holdout-Security.png Staking Claim
Ancient artifacts? Check. Remote, inaccessible locations? Check. Fearless explorers who laugh in the face of danger? Oh yeah. Nexus ain't big enough for everyone, and second place sucks. So get out there, plant your flag, and claim this planet for your allies.
Icon-Holdout-FirstStrike.png Surveillance Icon-Holdout-Protect.png Tracking
Get your secret agent on! There's a war out there, and you need to set up remote surveillance devices to keep an eye on the enemy.

Ready to hunt? Track enemies, creatures and strange anomalies through the unforgiving terrain of planet Nexus. Epic rewards? You know it.
