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 or multi, 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|
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.
