Mission Rewards


Special Items

Some items that are used or gained from missions are put in the "Special" tab under the Trade menu. They are explained here:


They allow for special buildings or modules to be constructed. Known blueprints include Anti-Resistance Base, Exotic Turret, Exotic Barrier, and other Exotic structures/weapons.

Complex Tech Parts

Complex Tech Parts can be gathered by scrapping Artifacts that have been dropped by a NPC or have been collected from a mission. They can also be gained by raiding bases of level 4 or higher
You can find the amount you have within the Special Tab which is under the Trade Tab

Here is a list of Artifacts that can be scrapped for CTP and their Value:
This list is currently incomplete, so add to it if you get it.

  • Note: At first you may not want to scrap any of these items as they are often quite desirable planet structures or ship modules. Those dropped from missions, mission NPCs or limited NPCs should NEVER be scrapped as only a limited number of each are available. Ordinary NPC-dropped items will eventually exceed the numbers allowed on your ship or planets, and these will become a significant source of CTP.

Complex Tech Parts can currently be used in the following mission(s). They each provide you with access to unique artifact modules.

Complex Tech Parts are also needed for upgrading a Legion base, making them high in demand.

Small numbers can also be obtained by defeating Rogue Tech Collectors, although these only give 1 or 2 tech parts for each disable.

Exotic Matter

Exotic Matter is a rare substance which can occasionally (in actuality, considering the size of most mineral shipments, pretty frequently) be obtained through typical mineral shipments. It is used as a resource to complete certain missions, similar to energy, but otherwise has no functional purpose. This is a fairly useless material at lower levels. Most useful if given to a friend (assuming the player is not in immediate need of the materials), unless you have started working on the very high level missions.

It is suggested that the odds of getting exotic matter in mineral shipments rise considerably when the player is at or above a certain rank (rank 85 and higher?), but this has not been confirmed. (This part is written by Joseph4) "I have recently reached level 85, and I noticed a BIG increase in the Exotic Matter and other rare minerals I was getting per shipment."

NOTE: Certain extremely high level missions unlock blueprints to weapons, defenses, and resource production structures that are created via the use of Exotic Matter. For example, 400 Exotic Matter, when used with the corresponding blueprint, can build an Exotic Turret, which gives 250 planet attack. This actually makes exotic matter an incredibly useful commodity at the high levels, especially with the heavy Exotic Matter requirements that some missions have.

Exotic Matter is also needed for upgrading a Legion base, making it even higher in demand.

Along with Kurenite, Exotic Matter has recently begun being used by many Trading Groups as the standard currency for trading in Artifacts. 10 Exotic Matter equals 1 Kurenite. 10 Kurenite equals 1 Complex Tech Parts.


A precious substance available from The Tejiar Reformation daily mission for use in the Raix Market. (forum topic)

Political Favor

Unlike Exotic Matter, which only really comes into its element in the higher levels, Political Favor is incredibly important very early on, continuing throughout the game because the Fourth Tier upgrade is the Soldier Outpost, a very important building which can make or break the defense of a planet. Many people burn through Political Favor quickly and place Soldier Outposts frequently.

You can get political favour from completing certain missions. Look for missions that have a reward that looks like a yellow crown.

Prejoran Tech

Technology belonging to an ancient race known as the Prejor. Required for building special modules related to, or of, Prejor origin. Obtained from Prejor related missions.

Prismodyne Energy

This is available from Porowyn's Arrival daily mission for use in the Prismodyne Energy Network Market


XTS-9 is an extremely toxic substance that is used in experimental industrial production. There are various high-rank missions that require XTS-9. Producing it is dangerous.

Zolazin Debris

Debris collected from battles with Zolazin NPCs. Required for a mission involving the Zolazin.

Tier Items

Mission tier items are gained through the FULL ending of the required number of missions. Note that what mission is ended does not matter, only the total number ended.

Also note that these are missions ended, not completed. Most missions require more than one completion before they end forever. In other words, you have to do a mission until it goes away (being replaced by another mission counts) before it is considered to have been "ended".

Unless otherwise specified, all mission tier items require NO space on a ship. The following can also be viewed in table form on the Mission Tiers page.
