This page explains both how to successfully complete weapon donation missions, and the effect on the BGS (Background Simulation). Use the tags above to read about related items, together with similar/related functions in-game.
Donations are indicated by a swiss cross with a hand below in the Mission Board. Fetch missions (“industry needs”, etc) are denoted by two arrows pointing opposite directions. Effects are the same for both.
For these missions you’ll accept the mission from the board, then source the item and return it to the originating station.
Functional States: All but War
Target/Source Info: FROM the faction for whom you want to raise influence (no target faction exists)
Exceptions: Does not affect INF in War state.
Effect on Player: Gain REP & INF with that faction (in a fixed amount, no choice on distribution).
