How Marauders Contracts Work

There are two kinds of Marauders Contracts: Core Contracts and Daily Contracts. Core Contracts are a long length of quests for the Pirate Faction. Daily Contracts are random Contracts supporting either the United Allies, Kingdom Alliance, or Central Empire.

Contracts will have different goals such as collecting items, destroying specific objects, visiting certain areas in a Raid Location, or even killing other players. Once completed, you can collect the reward for a Contract on the Contracts page.

Marauders Core Contracts List

These Marauders Contracts are for the "Pirate" faction and essentially represent a long, sequential quest chain that will get you some early-game gear at first. Later on, these Core Contracts will unlock some of the most powerful Weapons and Ships in the game.

Basic Resupply

  • Faction - Pirates
  • Requirements - Deliver 3 Junk Scrap
  • XP Reward - N/A
  • Faction Standing Reward - 10
  • $ Reward - $2,100
  • Other Rewards - 1 MP40, 10mm Ammo

Simply Scrap items that will give you Junk Scrap and deliver 3 on the Contracts screen. The easiest solution is to go into a Raid, grab the default items from your Rustbucket, immediately return home, and Scrap them.


Marauders The Half Track Bike needed to complete the Repo Man Core Contract, located in the Iridium Asteroid Mine.

Repo Man

  • Faction - Pirates
  • Requirements - Examine the Half Track Bike at the Iridium Asteroid Mine
  • XP Reward - 150
  • Faction Standing Reward - 35
  • $ Reward - $2,350
  • Other Rewards - 1 Commando Backpack

This Marauders Contract will require exploring the Iridium Asteroid Mine and finding the Half Track Bike in question. 

The Repo Man Contract is a little misleading; you may jump to the conclusion that you need to examine three separate Half Track Bikes. Thankfully, to complete the Repo Man Contract, simply find a single Asteroid Half Track Bike in the Iridium Asteroid Mine and interact with it when the prompt appears on screen for three seconds to complete the Contract.

The Half Track Bike is located in the Export area of the Iridium Asteroid Mine, near the Security Office. Hidden down a narrow hallway, the Half Track Bike can be found at the following coordinates:

  • X = 62, 283
  • Y = -4,086
  • Z = 74

The area surrounding the Half Track Bike will be populated with various machinery, containers, and even grey half track jeeps. Keep your eyes peeled for these to help you find the objective, while also remaining vigilant of nearby foes. Once you’ve found the Half Track Bike, walk up to it and hold the interact key for three seconds to complete the Repo Man Contract objective. 

Marauders Enter the Iridium Asteroid Mine through the 'left' hangar to find the Export area, where the Half Track Bike can be found.

The best way to complete the Repo Man Contract is to enter the Iridium Asteroid Mine via the Export/Security area. Taking the ‘front’ of the Mine as the side with a protruding metal structure around it, enter the ‘left’ hangar from space and head forward to find the location given above. Entering via this area will start you closest to the Half Track Bike location.

Make Your Mark...

  • Faction - Pirates
  • Requirements - Get 5 Kills with Any Weapon
  • XP Reward - 90
  • Faction Standing Reward - 50
  • $ Reward - $2,800
  • Other Rewards - 1 Mat-49, 2x .32 ACP Ammo

To complete Make Your Mark… all you need to do is get five kills, whether that be other Marauders or NPC enemies. Use all the knowledge you’ve learned from our Marauders Guide Hub and put it to good use!

It’s worth noting that progress for this Contract does not seem to be tracking accurately, meaning you may end up needing more than five kills to complete this objective.


Stand Out

  • Faction - Pirates
  • Requirements - Kill 3 Marauders
  • XP Reward - 100
  • Faction Standing Reward - 75
  • $ Reward - $3,000
  • Other Rewards - 2x Ammo Box

To complete Stand Out all you need to do is kill three Marauders (these are other players, not the NPCs). 

Finding other players, let alone killing them, is not always an easy task. The best way to complete Stand Out is to head into a Raid with a strong kit, including a primary weapon, armour, and medical supplies, and to stalk the Airlocks for other players just entering the location. Conversely, if you hear a nearby firefight then check it out as other players will be roaming the area.

Use all the knowledge you’ve learned from our Marauders Guide Hub and put it to good use to complete Stand Out.


Advanced Resupply

  • Faction - Pirates
  • Requirements - Deliver 8 Metal Sheets
  • XP Reward - 110
  • Faction Standing Reward - 90
  • $ Reward - $3,500
  • Other Rewards - 1 Small Shield, Unlocks Small Shield Crafting Recipe

To complete the Advanced Resupply Contract, all you must do is collect and deliver eight Metal Sheets. Importantly, all eight Metal Sheets must be in your inventory upon turning in the Contract, though they do not all need to be collected in a single run.

The best way to complete Advanced Resupply is to enter a Raid and loot various containers until you get lucky and find a Metal Sheet or two. Dying in a Raid will cause you to lose your items, including any Metal Sheets you have on your person. Make sure to leave the Raid alive so that you can store however many Metal Sheets you found in your Stash until you have acquired all eight Metal Sheets.


Marauders The Merchant Frigate Engine Room that you'll need to find for the Pirate Rank Contract.

Pirate Rank

  • Faction - Pirates
  • Requirements - Examine the Merchant Frigate Engine for 25 seconds
  • XP Reward - 140
  • Faction Standing Reward - 100
  • $ Reward - $3,250
  • Other Rewards - Unlocks Cosmetic: Outlaw Chest

The Pirate Rank Contract is a return to the more complex and involved objectives like the earlier Repo Man Contract.

Pirate Rank tasks you with examining the Merchant Frigate Engine for 25 seconds. This can be a surprisingly challenging objective as the Merchant Frigate is home to many, many guards, and is a popular location for other players given the high chances of stronger loot.

Marauders The Merchant Frigate random location that can spawn during Raids.

To complete Pirate Rank, you first need to board the Merchant Frigate. The Merchant Frigate is a random location that can spawn in space during Raids, identifiable by its unique design and bright red lights. To board the Merchant Frigate, use the Escape/Breaching Pods on the lower deck of your ship and fly towards the Merchant Frigate.

If you're lucky, you'll spawn in the Engine Room of the Frigate and the objective will be directly ahead. Otherwise, you need to locate the Engine Room. For reference, if you don't spawn in the Engine Room, then it will be on the opposite end of the ship to your location. Listen out for the loud humming of the engine.

Marauders Interact with the large, red Merchant Frigate Engine to complete the Pirate Rank Contract.

Once you're in the Engine Room, walk up to the large red engine and interact with it when the prompt appears to examine the Merchant Frigate Engine. You'll need to hold the interact key (F) for 25 seconds so be cautious of other players out for blood. After you've interacted with the engine, you'll hear a ding and the Pirate Rank Contract will be complete, whether you escape alive or not. Although, there are handy escape pods in the Engine Room to leave the Raid.


Guild Membership

  • Faction - Pirates
  • Requirements - Deliver a Silver Coin
  • XP Reward - 120
  • Faction Standing Reward - 115
  • $ Reward - $4,200
  • Other Rewards - 1 Plate Rig, 1 M1 Helmet

Guild Membership is another relatively straightforward Contract, tasking you with finding a Silver Coin. However, while you are not tasked with finding a specific (often dangerous) area, there is a large amount of luck involved.

Silver Coins are rare and valuable items in Marauders that can be sold for money. Chances are, you've found one already but sold it without realising a later Contract would require one. Don't fret, I'm in the same boat.

Silver Coins can be found almost anywhere in containers and on corpses. Search as many boxes, chests, and bodies as you can and hopefully, you'll find one sooner rather than later. Areas behind locked doors or inside Marauders' many Vaults seem to have a higher chance of dropping these valuable Silver Coins. You will, however, require a lockpick or blowtorch respectively to enter these areas. Happy hunting!


Scouting Party

  • Faction - Pirates
  • Requirements - Hold the Furnace for 90 seconds (found in the Iridium Asteroid Mine)
  • XP Reward - 120
  • Faction Standing Reward - 110
  • $ Reward - $5,000
  • Other Rewards - Unlocks Cosmetic: Outlaw Head

Scouting Party tasks you with standing in the Furnace Room of the Iridium Asteroid Mine for an anxiety-inducing 90 seconds. There are many points of entry to this location so stay on your guard at all times; you never know when or where someone might appear.

The Furnace can be found at these rough coordinates:

  • X = 64,000
  • Y = -2,000
  • Z = -29

More Core Contracts to be added as we progress in the game.

Marauders Contracts Guide - Daily Contracts List

Marauders Daily Contracts List

A total of 6 Daily Contracts are made available each day, and you can have 3 of these Marauders Contracts active at any one time. You cannot cancel a Contract once you've accepted it. Any remaining Contracts will disappear at the reset time and you'll have to select new Contracts.


Air Production

  • Faction - United Allies
  • Requirements - Activate the Air Processor at the Iridium Asteroid Mine
  • XP Reward - 250
  • Faction Standing Reward - 50
  • $ Reward - $9,000
  • Other Rewards - .45 ACP

Once you get to the Iridium Asteroid Mine, head inside and search for the Air Processor area. To find the Air Processor, locate the door marked 'Air' near the centre of the map, not far from the Furnace Room. Once you enter the Air Room, follow the short catwalk forward to find the Air Processor door. Enter the Air Processor to find a red switch located on a terminal nearby, above it will be the label 'Air'. Interact with this switch to activate the Air Processor and complete the Air Production Daily Contract.

The switch to activate the Air Processor in the Iridium Asteroid Mine can be found at the following coordinates:

  • X = 66,000
  • Y = -1,050
  • Z = 499

  • XP Reward - 375
  • Faction Standing Reward - 20
  • $ Reward - $12,500
  • Other Rewards - Radio Backpack

As far as Marauders Contracts go, this one is pretty easy -- you can Craft the requested Light Bags once you unlock it at Level 5. It will require a total of 6 Synthetic Scrap to make them all.


Boom Relay

  • Faction - Kingdom Alliance
  • Requirements - Destroy a Radar Tower
  • XP Reward - 225 XP
  • Faction Standing Reward - 35
  • $ Reward - $8,000
  • Other Rewards - N/A

You can find Radar Towers in space outside of most Raid Locations -- here's what they look like:

Marauders Contracts Guide - Boom Relay Radar Tower

Radar Towers are completely defenseless. They make a distinct sound, so keep your ears open and track it down. A few shots from the Rustbucket's gun will turn them into scrap in no time.


Marauders The location of the Foreman's Office in which the Gold Ring can be found for the Brigand Service Daily Contract, found near the bottom of the Iridium Asteroid Mine.

Brigand Service

The Foreman's Office can be found here, near a bright red light on the wall above. To collect the Gold Ring, enter the Foreman's Office and interact with the ring on the desk.

The Gold Ring to complete the Brigand Service Daily Contract in the Iridium Asteroid Mine can be found at the following coordinates:

  • X = 67,000
  • Y = -5,550

  • Another Transmitter can spawn in the Security Office, accessed via a ramp leading up from the Half Track Bike near the centre of the map. The Transmitter is hidden on the floor between the front desk and a filing cabinet, near the front door to the Security Office and the locked gate to the armory.

The Production Manifest for the Crop Production Daily Contract can be found at the following coordinates:

Arrow Pointing To The Door To Go Through For The Marauders Shopping Tour Contract

Shopping Tour

  • Faction - Central Empire

  • XP Reward - 300
  • Faction Standing Reward - 25
  • $ Reward - $8,000

It's always a good idea to hold onto a couple of Welrods just in case this Contract comes up. You'll have to kill 6 NPCs and/or Marauders in order to complete it. The Welrod is a bolt-action suppressed pistol, so it's best to only use it when you can carefully line up a headshot -- that is to say, your best chance is to sneak up on enemies rather than attempting to use this gun during a firefight.


Vault Intel

  • Requirements - Reach the Spaceport Vault to confirm intel
  • XP Reward - 250
  • Faction Standing Reward - 25
  • $ Reward - $9,000

  • Faction Standing Reward - 35
  • $ Reward - $18,000

  • Faction Standing Reward - 35

More Daily Contracts and more details on the above Contracts to be added as we progress in the game.
