Armourer in space station

Disambig.png This article is about the Atlas Rises version of the Armourer. For the NEXT version, see Armourer.

The Armorer is a hirable Vy'keen NPC.


The Armorer is a hirable Vy'keen NPC, required for base building progression. They can mostly be found in Vy'keen systems, but can also randomly be found in systems controlled by other species.


Before hiring an Armourer, the following need to be in place:

Missions - Atlas Rises[]

1. Talk to Armourer. Complete requested task. Receive Haz-Mat Gauntlet blueprint.
2. Talk to Armourer. Visit the marked Weapons Factory, clear it. Return to Armourer. Receive Cyclotron Ballista blueprint.
3. Talk to Armourer. Kill a 1 star pirate in space. Return to Armourer.
4. Talk to Armourer. Visit the marked Outpost, talk to NPC inside. Return to Armourer. Receive Advanced Mining Laser blueprint.
5. Talk to Armourer. Attack the marked Depot, destroying at least three of the containers. Return to Armourer. Receive Positron Ejector blueprint.
Tip: When done on foot, attacking a Depot will immediately raise your Security Level to 3, which spawns several Sentinel Drones and a Walker. The easiest way to complete this quest is to attack the depot containers from the air with your ship.
6. Talk to Armourer. Acquire a Vy'keen Dagger. Return to Armourer. Receive Infra-Knife Accelerator blueprint.
7. Talk to Armourer. Go to space, where your Security Level is raised to 5. Wait for Sentinel ships to spawn, and kill one of them. Return to Armourer. Receive 250 nanites.
Tip: Descending into the upper atmosphere of a planet as soon as possible will make the ships attack you from fewer directions. Dropping too close to the surface before returning fire may cause all sentinels to despawn.

This is currently the end of the Armourer quest line.
