Starlost features multiple game modes. Players can gain resources in either mode.
Campaign[edit | edit source]
The campaign spans over 17 sectors and is a series of story-driven missions - getting Axel back to Earth!
Endless[edit | edit source]
Endless mode allows players to battle against never-ending waves of The Collective, allowing them to cash out at the end of a wave to gain RU, nanocores and a score for the leaderboard.
Along with battling waves of enemies, players are given the opportunity to mine high-RU asteroids each wave.
Easy Mode[edit | edit source]
Unlocked once reaching Sector 5 of the campaign, Easy Mode is a great place to harvest RU before battling the first boss.
Normal Mode[edit | edit source]
Unlocked once reaching Sector 10 of the campaign, Normal Mode can be used by players reaching the mid-game of Starlost to gather more resources to help in the end-game.
Insane Mode[edit | edit source]
Unlocked once reaching Sector 16 of the campaign. Huge amounts of RU can be gained here and this mode is usually used to help players afford Experimental class weapons.
Hardcore Mode[edit | edit source]
The hardest mode of Endless, suitable for very well equipped and trained players. When defeated in this mode, the player loses all earned RU, so it is recommended to use Phoenix Failsafe.
