In this section of the guide, you will find out what are the Assignment Missions in Deep Rock Galactic and how to complete them.
Assignment Missions are tasks that every aspiring miner must complete in order to unlock access to many of the attractions featured in Deep Rock Galactic. What's more, Assignment Missions are an excellent way to get additional raw materials and credits that can be used to improve your equipment or personalize the appearance of your miner.
Depending on the type of Assignment Missions, the player will have to complete a series of several tasks (usually 3 to even 10) for which they will receive a corresponding reward. The first Assignment task is assigned to each player from the beginning and must be completed to unlock access to all types of missions available in Deep Rock Galactic. Next quests are optional and you can get rewards from them, such as access to alternative weapons or unlocking the most difficult threat level (Hazard 5).
How to perform Assignment Missions?
Assignment missions are performed throughout the whole Hoxxes IV planetary system and are associated with various primary objectives. Typically, the player has a specific type of mission to complete in the proper part of space. Also, missions have various difficulty levels, so some should be completed in a group - especially when it comes to hunting extremely dangerous Dreadnoughts.
Assignment Missions are well visible on the main planetary map and are marked by a small white diamond that is shown in the picture above. At the top of the screen you can also notice a mission progress bar which shows that the player is currently on stage 8 and will have a Salvage Operation to perform.
