General Quest Dialogue

Now that you’re part of the Korolev family, it’s time to put some real work in. Korolev would send down its own teams to retrieve resources, but the planet’s status as “Extremely hazardous to Life” makes that slightly illegal.

Plus, what kind of person would be crazy enough to go down there anyway?

Part 5 Dialogue

Ah, just the prospector I needed! We needed you to go back to the Dig Site, it seems there are some… matters that need to be handled before those journalists arrive for their tour.
Some of the site’s workers refused to follow evacuation procedures and the creatures got to them before our rescue teams; we’d like you to retrieve their cameras, to protect their dignity.

  • Retrieve Miner CAM #2F53

All of the three cameras are around the Dig Site on Bright Sands. They are next to dead bodies. I’ve marked their locations in the image below, including a closeup of the images:

Part 6 Dialogue

A shipping accident damaged a crate full of Scrappers already marked for sale. Get us these parts so we can repair them before it becomes an issue.

Objectives

  • Deliver 7 Shard Slicers
  • Deliver 5 Zero Systems CPUs

Rewards

  • 200 FP
  • x4 Korolev Scrip
  • x7000 Krypto Marks

Guide

  • Shard Slicers can be found in Civilian Lockers if we go by the book. But, let’s be honest. In this game, the loot delivery is weird. Sometimes you can find items in the weirdest and least common places on the map. So I’d advise you to keep your eyes peeled and take it slow when looting. The racks in Starpoint Warehouse on Crescent Falls is one of the common spots to check for this item.
  • Zero Systems CPUs can be found in Briefcases and Cabinets. They can also spawn on the ground, usually in High or Extreme Danger zones. They can be an annoying find, so good luck with them.

Part 7 Dialogue

The Bright Sands Jungle area has an overpopulation problem, maybe you can be the solution?

Objectives

  • Visit the Jungle on Bright Sands
  • Hunt 15 Creatures in the Jungle on Bright Sands

Rewards

  • 50 FP
  • x2 Korolev Scrip
  • x5300 Krypto Marks

Guide

There’s not much to talk about except wishing you good luck on your objective. You can find the Jungle marked in the image below. Just a quick tip. The zone that counts the mobs towards the quest is a lot bigger than just the marked POI below. Even in the south from the Crashed Ship, the Jungle counts in. Have that in mind so you can maximize the killing blows and get all 15 in one run.

Part 8 Dialogue

Osiris are doing experiments with Meteor Fragments and Focus Crystals. Get us some samples, I want to find out what’s so interesting.

Objectives

  • Deliver 5 Meteor Fragments
  • Deliver 5 Circuit Boards

Rewards

  • 240 FP
  • x6 Korolev Scrip
  • x7700 Krypto Marks

Guide

  • Meteor Fragments can be acquired by mining the small Meteorites that periodically fall from the sky. The exact frequency at which the Meteor Shower occurs is unknown. A rough estimate is once per day/storm cycle. That means you will definitely encounter these during your prime time. Care, once it finishes, other players may anticipate the impact too, as the shower can be seen from every place on the map. The Meteor Shower consists of small meteorites and a big one that has a huge impact and concludes the shower with a big bang. You need to mine the small ones, as they are the only ones that give Meteor Fragments. The big one gives a Meteor Core.

  • Circuit Boards can be found in BriefcasesLuggage, and as a static spawn across technologically advanced rooms and areas (racks, decks next to PCs, chairs, etc.).

Part 9 Dialogue

Marauders are made of something much tougher than Striders. Kill one and bring back some of its remains, for testing.

Objectives

  • Hunt 1 Marauders
  • Deliver 1 Hardened Bone Plates

Rewards

  • 310 FP
  • x8 Korolev Scrip
  • x8500 Krypto Marks

Guide

  • Marauders are one of the biggest creatures in this game, besides the Crusher. Marauders are also known as “Jeffs” and they are not so hard to kill. For this quest, I’d advise you to get to the Base Camp on Bright Sands, and kill the one that’s in the middle of the room. They should drop a Hardened Bone Plates upon elimination.
