Guide to obtain all new achievements for Encounters DLC/expansion.
Encounter DLC / Expansion
The first major expansion for EVERSPACE has arrived. It brings new ship (Sentinel), a lot of new mission, a couple of new weapons, devices, resources, and consummables. This guide will provide the simplest description on how to obtain all new achievements (8 new achievements) in Encounters DLC.
There are 4 new NPCs that you will encounter in your run, all of them have 1 encounter-related missions and achievement. To obtain these achievements you'll need to finish all of their respective missions in a couple of runs since you can only meet them once or twice in a single run.
Tuned To The Max
Upgrade your new Sentinel perks to its maximum levels.
It's simple, just upgrade your new Sentinel ship perks to its maximum levels.
Nobody Expects The Coalition
Help Elek to increase the Coalition popularity/notoriety.
You'll meet Elek in one of your encounter, he will ask you to help him to complete a couple of missions. His missions mainly focused on helping his Coalition clan defeating other clan to gain popularity/notoriety in the DMZ.
Note: this is an encounter-related achievement, so you'll need a couple of runs to meet Elek and finish his missions. All of the new Encounters NPC will only appear once or twice in a single run.
Help Throng to complete his biological research.
Just like Elek, you'll meet Throng in one of your encounter. Throng will ask you to scan organisms across the DMZ (see image). He will provide hint on how to scan every organisms. To scan the organism you just need to point your ship towards the organism, some of them will move so you will have to follow them to complete your scan.
What special about Throng is he also has a store (on top of his ship you'll see a trade/store marker). He offers blueprints (a rare and new blueprints) and weapons & devices enhancement. You can enhance your weapons or device in exchange for Viridian Energy, a new resource you can find after you kill/destroy Okkar Corvette or Okkar Frigate and Drone Carrier.
Note: this is an encounter-related achievement, so you'll need a couple of runs to meet Throng and finish his missions. All of the new Encounters NPC will only appear once or twice in a single run.
Quid Pro Quo
Help Tareen by trading with him.
You will meet Tareen in one of your encounter, he's an Okkar trader, probably the only Okkar who won't shot you in the face! Ha!
He'll give you a trading related missions, you need to fetch scraps, processors, Access Key, specific device and secondary weapon, and all kind of resources (some with ridiculous amount required) to complete his missions.
Things can get annoying if you encounter Tareen with a specific ship but he ask an item/weapon/consumables that is not compatible with you ship, so you have to leave and return with the compatible ship.
Note: Unless you carry all of the required items for trading, you will need a lot of runs to finish Tareen's mission.
Here's the list of the item needed to get this achievement:
- Scrap (25)
- Processor (15)
- Access Key (5)
- Mainframe Override (1)
- Dark Matter (25)
- Dark Energy (25)
- Fusion Blaster M6-A (enhanced and upgraded with 3 mods, you can choose the mods as you like)
And That's That
Help Karlie finish her "missions" to obtain this achievement.
You'll meet Karlie in one of your encounter. She is a shady character that claimed works for G&B. Her missions mainly related to fixing and rescuing mining things (mining drones, mining drill). You will travel to Okkar homeworld in one of her mission.
Note: This is an encounter-related achievement, so you'll need a couple of runs to meet Karlie and finish her missions. All of the new Encounters NPC will only appear once or twice in a single run.
To obtain this achievement you will need a Goo Gun, a new main weapon which blueprint you can buy from Throng. It's a high damage weapon but have relatively short range and it shots a green Flubber-like goo!
To craft this weapon you'll need a Viridian Energy, Scrap, Ore, and Gel.
Once you have the gun, you'll need to find Flubber (I forgot the organism name, its a big green goo that move around slowly, see image for detail). The only way to find Flubber is on the big asteroid (the one which you often find crystal). When you find the organism you just have to follow it and shot your Goo Gun at it (don't shoot to close), it will get bigger and bigger and eventualy it will explode and you will get the achievement.
Big gun, big damage.
It simple enough : you just need to have a main weapon with more than 200 hull OR shield damage. For me, using the Goo Gun is the easiest way to get this achievement because its base Hull damage already high enough to reach more than 200 damage.
You will need 2 Hull Damage Mk3 + 1 Hull Damage Mk2 (or Fire Rate Mk2/Mk3) OR just upgrade the Goo Gun with 3 Hull Damage Mk2/Mk3.
Vigorous and Versatile
Easiest achievement in this expansion.
This is a secret achievement and to get it you just need to use the new ship, Sentinel, 15 times. Simple.
