If you are bored with mining minerals and looking for a more fun way to earn money for buying ships, then you are at the right place. In this article, we will discuss the basics of Star citizen Missions, how to get them, and some of the mission types available in the game. It must be noted that Star Citizen is under development, so it's only natural to have updates now and then. Therefore, we will discuss everything we know so far about the missions in Star Citizen.
Missions are fun and full of adventure compared to other ways of earning money, such as mining (Give link to the mining guide). Also, missions have high chances of success and getting a good amount of aUEC. However, there are various legal and illegal missions, and though illegal missions (transporting illegal objects, killing) can pay you much more than the legal ones, they are too dangerous.
The easiest way to get the aUEC is by buying them.
The Contract Manager app in the mobiGlas has missions. While some missions are predefined, others are generated procedurally from lists. A handful requires an overhead investment, while the majority are free to accept. Payments are made in the form of fixed UEC payments and definite bonuses when specific mission criteria are met. Upon the player's death, some missions - but not all - are considered failed. Others are time-bound, i.e., they have a time limit.
Your current Area of Operations, your CrimeStat rating, the missions you have already finished, your reputation with task giver NPCs, and your position with the Bounty Hunters Guild will all affect the missions that are accessible to you. For instance, you need certification from the Bounty Hunter Guild to do Bounty Hunter missions.
Use F1-Key to open mobiGlas, select the Contracts Manager, and then choose either the Personal or General tab to find all the available missions you can claim. There are various types of mission categories. Each new mission category will have a number associated with them, indicating the number of offers available.
You can select any available offer and click ACCEPT OFFER to accept the offer. It will automatically be added to the Accepted tab. Once you've accepted a contract, you'll be able to see a complete list of objectives from the Accepted page.
Now that we've covered how you can get missions, let's move on to the section where we will discuss the types of missions.
There are multiple mission types available, but we will only discuss the typical missions you will encounter in the Contracts Manager.
These missions include getting invites from the mission givers to meet them in person. This will open up opportunities for missions for them. Although, these missions will only be available to you if you complete various missions of similar type that the mission givers are offering.
Appointment missions that you might encounter – Employment Opportunity (Meet Clovus), Outsourcing Opportunity (Meet Constantine), Eckhart Security Job Op, and many others.
These missions include tracking down a specific person whose profile will be given when you accept the offer. These are the most dangerous persons; you must track them and take them down. You must have a certification from the BOUNTY HUNTERS GUILD to get these missions. Your standing in the Reputation System helps a lot in getting these missions.
