Oratan Prospector Description: The Oratan are believed to be the race warned of in The Signal, intercepted by the Celeste Space Probe. It follows that this species inflicted genocide on the Ancient Arkadian people. Accordingly, the Oratan should not be underestimated. As a species, they revel in battle and killing, specifically targeting human colonists on Arkadia. They have also shown a tendency to loot and steal, and appear in particular to crave technology. Advanced weapons appear to be within their ability to use, but beyond their capability to develop for themselves. In this case, the creature appears to have fashioned a pickaxe in order to search for materials. This may indicate a change in the previously observed behaviour of the Oratan, which will need to be investigated further. The Imperial Federal Navy knows little of the origins of the Oratan. However, the destruction of the Ancient Arkadians at their hands seem certain, and the threat they pose to humanity is very real and immediate.

IFN NEEDS YOU: thread with info and experiences from players. Spoiler: "Tips for doing the IFN Daily Challenge: Oratan Payback Mission." If you are starting these missions, and are reading about spawn issues: here are a few basic tips. If there are no/few mobs of your maturity: - Check the other spawns. - Shoot the other maturities to respawn your own. - Cooperation: bring in a friend, or someone from #arkadia who has another rank. - Or just wait a bit and check again in half an hour / an hour or so. If you consistently have problems: consider changing the time you do the Daily. A lot of people do the mission at the same time every day. So starting at a time when few hunters are shooting the same maturity, can make it easier. E.a. in a good period I can finish it in an hour (with a tiny gun). These are Daily missions, that have a cool-down period of 20 hours. This doesn't mean you have to do it within that time. It just counts 20 hours from when you have finished a mission, to when it will be available again. With 12 different spawn locations, the situation is better than it was before. Each location has basically 1 maturity in the majority, but they largely overlap over many spawns. If a few hunters just cleared out a specific spawn of your desired maturity, it can be that there are hardly any left. This doesn't mean that the above Location list is incorrect. They will respawn, so no worries, it just takes patience. Good luck & happy hunting. Spoiler: "What is this IFN Rank / daily mission for?" This is not 'your average mission'. From the first mention on, it's been described as a long term mission chain to get promoted through the IFN ranks. Gaining a high rank will require dedication, time and effort. Since a Navy can't exist of Generals only: reaching the 'top' ranks cannot be something that's easily done. Each rank is an achievement that you've earned. It can also be seen as a way to show the outside world your dedication to Arkadia. Because ranks can't be bought: the only way to gain them, is by putting in the time. So upon seeing your rank, people will know what you've accomplished to get that title. Whether ultimately it is worth it, remains a personal decision. But it is a very long term goal: so if you don't have the time and/or patience for it, then it might make sense to skip this one. Currently the only rewards are the UA and your rank. Further content will be released later on: whether you will be able to access that, will likely depend on your rank. There are many 'rumours' and 'wishes' floating around, about what the ranks eventually will do. Ranging from NPCs who salute you, different uniforms to reflect your rank, living quarters/apartments at the FireBases, etc. But since we don't have a crystal ball: we can just 'speculate' for now, about what likely will be implemented in the future. Considering how long it takes to climb ranks, it may be smart to start now. Waiting to see what the ranks are exactly for, and only start at that time, will put you a long way behind the people who have prepared. Since so far, to finish up mission VI takes 165 days = 5.5 months. And there will of course be many more ranks after that one: becoming a 'General' has been described as taking a couple of years. But there is more to consider: it's not just about these dailies. After all, there is a Smuggler quest in the works. Though it has been confirmed that you can do both IFN and Smuggler quests. And that we will be told beforehand if there are any missions that would exclude us from doing other future missions. But... will you have time to do them both at the same time? And who knows, perhaps there could be some sort of interaction between the various faction's missions? So, what will you decide to do? ps. This part is my personal interpretation, and in no way all 'hard boiled fact'. Listen to David's interview of May 3rd, 2014 where the IFN and Smuggler missions are described.
