Hints for rookie Agents

As soon as you create your character, you will be deposited on Nia as an Agent of Project Perpetuum. Your first task will be to complete the tutorial programs laid out for you. These will teach you the basic controls and mechanics of the game, but you can interrupt the tutorial at anytime and do whatever you like.

We would strongly encourage new players to complete all the tutorial assignments offered in your starting Terminal as well. Each assignment takes you through a further mechanic of the game –travel, combat, delivery, and so on –and gives you a reward that can be put to good use after the tutorial is completed. The final assignment even gives you a proper starting robot! There is a basic tutorial with 5 assignments that provides an Arke MK2 as final reward. After finishing that tutorial you have access to basic combat and basic industrial tutorial assignments (additional series of 5 assignments) which will provide you at the end with a free light bot (either combat or industrial). These assignments provide you not only a free bot, they help you learn the game mechanics and provide some additional equipment

After you complete the tutorial assignments, you can continue to work for the Syndicate solo by completing other assignments offered at the terminals, or you can find a new corporation to join with the Recruitment function, if the social aspects of the game appeal to you.

More advices for rookies:

  • Bot speed is strong depending on the weight of equipment installed in bot (beside bot type and lwf). Equip your bot for the task you want to do. E.g no weapons, when you mine, no geoscanner when you wanna kill NPCs.
  • It is not reasonable to tank a group of NPCs in the first weeks in game, try to fight NPCs by playing with range (easiest game is having more range than NPC and shoot from that range).
  • Plasma is for sell to NPCs and the best income source for fighters in the beginning.
