Settlers bring civilization to this newly discovered planet by constructing outposts in dangerous areas and upgrading existing towns. Work with others to improve the world with banks, transportation networks, vendors, and other helpful structures to aid your allies. Start campfires for boosts, maintain taxi services and enjoy increased drop rates for housing supplies.

That town ain't going to improve itself. So step up, strap on a toolbelt, and get to work building things that make everyone's life a little easier. Town guards can handle the small stuff. But when the biggest, meanest monsters on Nexus come a-knockin', you'll step up and save the day!

Who has time to sit around and wait for vital supplies to show up on a platter? Put on those boots and bring home the bacon! Are you ready for some serious real estate development? Then do your civic duty and build hospitals, taverns, and spaceports for your friends and allies.

Some people just don't have the grit and backbone to get the job done. Good thing you do. Achieve tasks for the greater good, and get rewarded for it.



Expansion Missions are one of the most common mission types of the Settler Path. They require the Settlers to gather resources in order to build stations for buffs and various quality of life improvements at supply depots. If the stations are already built, other Settlers may increase their duration by providing materials as well.

Civil Defense

Occasionally a Settler will come across missions that require them to take down creatures that threaten the day to day life of the people residing on Nexus. These creatures are normally stronger than the average creature or come in greater numbers.

Supply Cache

Supply Cache missions are different from other Settler missions in that they are found, rather than picked up. Supply Cache missions play out similar to a game of hot and cold once the Settler is in the hex with the supply cache. They will need to select the option to dig the cache up. Like many missions, a Settler can use the quest tracker to approach the area and locate the the hidden supplies.


Infrastructure projects are much larger scale than Expansion Projects. Normally these require a great deal of effort from many Settlers to complete. During these missions, the local area is normally cluttered with parts used for the project. The Settler must gather these parts and turn them into the NPC heading the project.


Settlers use materials to build upgrades, different zones supply and use materials of a specific tier. Materials are obtained by picking them up off the ground or through killing certain monsters as well as rewards for completing cache missions.

Materials are stored in a players crafting bag up to a stack of 250.
