Looks like you’re moving on up, agent. Faction Ranking missions are now available – are you up to the challenge?
Once you’re Level 50, are finished with at least the entirely of the Tokyo storyline, and have an Item Power of at least 250, a new series of tasks become available, allowing you to increase your standing within your Faction! As they say, nothing of value comes for free: You have to show some backbone and commitment – you have to prove yourself!
- Into Darkness has you infiltrate a mysterious car park. Hope you’ve brought a change of pants!
- Venetian Missile Crisis tasks you with delving into a Phoenician compound. Go blow things up!
- Rogue Agent has you hot on the tail of…well, someone you need to chase. We won’t spoil things – just get to it!
These missions provide extra challenge aimed at seasoned agents, and completing your ranking missions unlocks the remaining iterations of your faction uniform, an additional Agent Network mission slot, a brand-new Agent Dossier, and new faction-specific headgear!
Each Faction Ranking mission has a minimum Item Power requirement, beginning with Into Darkness at IP 250. Other ranking missions will require additional Item Power before you may accept them. To accept, look for the Paragon Activity Boards in Agartha (they’re the red ones).
Each Faction Ranking mission also features a series of difficulty levels you unlock as you enter. Additional difficulty options automatically appear as you continue growing in power, and bestow additional rewards as you go up in difficulty. Faction Ranking missions do not require any special keys or tokens in order to access, play through, and earn rewards from.
For example, here’s what it looks like for a character at 500 IP for Into Darkness:
>PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE_
In addition to Faction Ranking missions, those agents infiltrating New Dawn in South Africa may access one new Sabotage mission titled “Public Enemy Number One”. Who’s been keeping an eye on you within the compound? We suppose you’ll want an answer. If you’ve completed “Things That Go Bump in the Night”, return to your quarters and look for a little somethin’ someone left for you.
With the inclusion of this mission, the meta-achievement “Land of the Dawn”, along with its fashionable reward, may now be obtained.
