Step 3: Run to Dropship, Finish.

You should be able to finish it solo in around ~9-11 minutes, gaining you 50 credits.

Quicker with a team of 2, I’ve managed just under 7 minutes on a good run where the dropship has landed closer to Objective 3.

Tips and Tricks:

Tips and tricks for faster runs:

  • Don’t get to close to the plant when you harvest it. If you go to close, it will poison you.
  • Do it with a friend and have the host go to the first Objective. Have 2nd person run to First and Third objective. You can get this down to under 7-8 minutes.
  • Get the Swift Survivor skill (Exploration Tree) for additional speed. 10% extra speed
  • Get the Bow Agility skill (Bow Tree), and soon as you drop, make and equip a bow (No ammo needed) 10% extra speed
  • Unlock any Workshop bow, so that you start with one instead of having to make one for the above tip.
  • x2 Mass Dampener Modules in the Workshop (You will need atleast a Xigo “Duo” S5 Envirosuit that has 2 suit module slots). When you are dropping each time, use that time to equip the Mass Dampener Modules. 10% extra speed (5% per Dampener)

  • Optionally if solo, get the Fleet Footed skill from the Solo tree. 10% extra speed.
  • If you are having trouble hearing the Bears, consider upgrading your headset and adjusting your ingame audio. I highly recommend the HyperX Cloud II’s or Logitech G432’s.

Overall extra move speed: 30% (40% if solo)
