The mission counter.

Missions are the various assignments that players can go on to earn experience and items. There are many different types of missions, each having differing objectives and requirements, and reward the player with different rewards accordingly. Each mission is split up into various difficulty ranks, meaning every mission gets increasingly harder, with appropriately better rewards.

Missions can be accessed at the mission counter on Clad 6, which is found on the player's ship. The mission counter will have different missions available depending on if the current mode is story mode or multi mode, and how far through the story the player has progressed. Some missions also require the completion of other similar missions to be accessed.

Mission rank[edit | edit source]

Each mission has up to 5 different ranks available, ranging from the lowest at , to the highest at . The higher the mission rank, the higher the level of the creatures and therefore the difficulty of the mission.

Depending on the mission rank as well, a certain character level is required to access the mission. In general, the following requirements and enemy levels are followed:

Rank Player LV Creature LV
1+ 1-24
20+ 25-74
60+ 75-124
100+ 125-174
150+ 175-250

However, this is not a strict rule, as many missions have lower/higher requirements, along with different level creatures.

Mission clear[edit | edit source]

At the end of every mission, a mission clear screen is displayed which outlines the player's performance and grants them a score ranging from 0 to 1,000 points. Depending on the score achieved, a certain rank will be obtained, with higher ranks granting more meseta, Type Points and chance for an item rewards. If playing with partner characters, there is also a chance of them granting the player an item if S Rank is achieved, with the item depending on the character taken.

Performance can be judged on many factors, such as creatures killed, time taken, traps activated, times returned to Clad 6, and more.

The general points required for each rank are as follows:

  • C-Rank: 0-299 points
  • B-Rank: 300-699 points
  • A-Rank: 700-999 points
  • S-Rank: 1,000 points

However, this is not a hard rule, as many missions have different thresholds.

List of mission types[edit | edit source]

Mission type Story Multi Description
Story missions × The main story line of Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity, and are required to unlock almost all other missions and items. Story missions scale to the player's character level.
Open missions Basic assignments, with the party being tasked to reach the end of the mission and defeat the target creature. All open missions feature 5 difficulty ranks.
Tactical missions Special missions which feature special objectives, with some requiring multiple players. The list of missions available between story mode and multi mode are different.
Infinity missions Pseudo-random missions generated from mission discs. They give very low type points and meseta, but can be efficient for hunting many items, with certain items exclusive to infinity missions.
Battle missions × Competitive missions, where the players are tasked with defeating other players in various ways. Battle missions give all players set levels and equipment.
Challenge missions × Special missions where the party's levels and items are temporarily reset, and must make it to the end of the level without dying without a scape doll.
Urgent missions × Rare missions which can sometimes be played after the completion of an open mission in multi mode. They feature extremely high rewards, but can only be played once.
Trade missions × Special missions where the player is tasked with bringing a non-player character certain items in exchange for rewards.
Training missions × Missions for beginners to learn the game with Vasque. These missions teach basic controls and mechanics, and temporarily reset the player's level and items.
Client requests Special tasks which can be completed while playing other missions. Players are tasked with defeating specific creatures or clearing specific missions, and will receive meseta and items in return for completion.
