Frigate types clockwise from top left: Support, Exploration, Combat, Industrial and Trade.

Frigate Traits are randomly-generated characteristics of the frigates.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Frigate Traits are one of the fundamental characteristics that determine the effectiveness of frigates during expeditions. Traits are randomly generated characteristics that can provide both positive and negative effects, serving to benefit or hinder frigates when they are sent on missions. The Manage Fleet screen in the player's central control room of their freighter can be used to review the traits of each frigate in the fleet.

Trait types[edit | edit source]

There are 5 exclusive, 72 beneficial and 25 negative frigate traits in total.

Frigates can be generated with up to 5 traits depending on their level, but each type of frigate has a limited number of traits to be chosen from:

  • The first trait is always an exclusive trait tied to the frigate type.
  • The other four traits are randomly chosen from 42 beneficial and 20 negative traits available to their respective type.
