Loot, are rewards earned from or during completing missions, events, or strongholds. They are commonly called Loot Drops if they are obtained from defeating enemies. Loot appears as a cypher projected octaheadron when obtained during an expedition, and its content can only be seen at the end of the expedition.

Loot can be obtained by defeating enemies or opening treasure chests or completing challenges. The type of loot and rarity depends upon the level of a javelin and the difficulty setting of the game mode. Salvaging loot will provide Crafting Resources.

Receive loot by successfully completing missions and from sources like defeated enemies and treasure chests. The specific loot is only revealed once an expedition is completed, but includes javelin upgrades such as weapons, gear, and components. Once revealed, items can be equipped at the Forge.

When defeating enemies, there's always a chance that loot will drop. Powerful enemies, Elite enemies, and Legendary enemies all have an increased chance of a drop.

Treasure chests will also drop loot. The quality of the chest determines the number of possible loot drops. Chests can be found while exploring during missions or Freeplay, but also upon completion of Freeplay events or major Stronghold encounters.

Successfully completing missions automatically adds loot to a player's backpack, which resolves as normal after completing the expedition. Bonus loot is added by successfully completing a mission after using Quickplay.

Loot drops have a maximum rarity that is determined by the players current pilot level. At Level 1-9, drops are Uncommon.png Uncommon rarity; Level 10-19 are Rare.png Rare; Level 20-29 are Epic.png Epic; Level 30+ are Masterwork.png Masterwork. At Level 30+, there is a small chance that Legendary.png Legendary items will drop instead of Masterwork items.

  • All legendary loot obtained at pilot level 30 will have a guaranteed power of 80.
  • All loot drops obtained through Guardians Gifts will be legendary.
  • The tougher the difficulty, the higher the chance to obtain loot as drops from enemies, especially legendary loot drops. Also, more enemies will drop loot when the difficulty is higher.

Trivia

  • At launch, the lootpool, even at pilot level 30 included common and uncommon loot. But this was changed later when players began to complain.
  • Unfortunately, the above change backfired when Guardians' Tokens were introduced with update 1.6.0, as embers and crafting resources obtained from salvagigng the lower rarities are one of teh quickest ways of obtaining legendary loot from Guardians' Gifts.
