Overview of Lethal Company
Lethal Company is a cooperative PVE game for one to four players that can be modded to increase it, unfolding in the vastness of space. Your main goal? Explore different planets, gather scrap to meet your quota before the deadline, and buy new items to progress on your exploration. You’ve got three days to pick a planet, each with its unique level generation.
Planet Exploration and Scrap Collection
Once you step off your ship, make a beeline for the planet’s facility stocked with scrap. Your mission? Hoard that scrap and haul it back to your trusty scrap space van. Every trip introduces procedural generation, keeping the outer scene the same but reshuffling the facility inside. Brace yourself for a randomized difficulty level and special weather events, cranking up the challenge and throwing unique obstacles your way.
Inside these facilities, navigate through mazes of corridors and access points. Some areas need keys for locked doors, others throw in jumping puzzles and remote control doors that you unlock from your ship. As difficulty increases, the frequency and type of available scrap become more abundant. Utilize your scanning ability to uncover hidden scrap in the facility. Scrap falls into three core categories: all scrap items (fitting into the four inventory slots), large scrap items (only one carryable at a time), and metallic scrap items conducting electricity. Weight values impact stamina and jump capabilities, and weather conditions play a role.
Carrying Items and Making Purchases
Aside from scrap, carry other items to aid your progress. The ship’s computer terminal provides a full list. Valuable purchases include a flashlight and walkie-talkie, helping with visibility and communication. These items have limited battery life but are rechargeable at your ship. Money gained from selling scrap is used to purchase items.
End of Exploration and Company Quotas
At the end of a 3-day exploration, bring all collected scrap back to the company. The company, a legitimate institution, sets an ever-increasing quota, sending you to more distant and dangerous planets. Encounter diverse and strange entities during exploration, both inside and outside. Dodge, fight, or run to survive. If all teammates perish on an expedition, you lose all collected scrap. Entity spawn rates increase with prolonged stay, so avoid lingering too long. Scan each encountered entity to learn effective strategies.
