Power the Reactor[1]

  • During the Alpha, this mission was named Power the Reactor. The procedure was almost identical but the appearance and names were different.
  • Patch 1.10 updated the appearance of the hidden "modules", from floating diamonds to sleeping Construction bots [2]


Patch 5.20 (August 7, 2018)
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where SEE-bot could not properly activate in Repair the Shelter missions.

Patch 4.3 (May 30, 2018)

Bug Fixes
  • Chrome Husky won’t appear multiple times in the first Repair the Shelter tutorial mission.
  • Players now must complete the final 4 minute encounter to get credit for the “Repair the Shelter” mission.

Patch 4.2 (May 16, 2018)

  • Repair the Shelter raid
  • In order to reduce the length of the raid fights, they are no longer timed fights.
  • Players are now required to eliminate a set number of enemies for each raid.
    • The final encounter is still time-based.
  • The number of enemies will increase by 10 enemies each of the first 3 raids and then remain at 3rd raid values.

Patch 3.5 (April 11, 2018)

  • ‘Repair the Shelter’ objective now activates when you interact with the control panel rather than be based on proximity to the objective.
  • ‘Repair the Shelter’ adjustments:
  • See-Bot will no longer be attacked on arrival.
    • See-Bot will now arrive with a 5 minute counter. After 5 minutes it will leave to recharge and then return later to a different location on the map.
    • The Husk attack now begins when a player deploys the See-Bot. See-Bot is safe before then.
    • Players have 5 minutes to start the scan and then defend See-Bot.
  • Husk attack difficulty has been reduced for first two attacks.
  • Shelter will now automatically start diagnostic scan when player reaches the shelter instead of having to interact with it.
    • Decreasing the difficulty of the mission and initial combat encounter allowed us to double down on the mission core: scrambling to rescue a sieged shelter and creating a time pressure. -Developer Comment
  • With the automatic diagnostic scan the length of time until first raid occurs has been increased to 8:30 minutes after diagnostics are complete to allow more time to prepare, used to be 6:30 minutes.
