Every Side Quest in Akila City

In total, you will find nine side quests in Akila City. Now, that’s not counting the various miscellaneous quests, like delivering letters or tackling jobs on the mission board, only the genuinely handcrafted quest content.

Defensive Measures

In Defensive Measures, you will help Keoni Alpin and Davis Wilson in a dispute over how best to deal with the Ashta threatening Akila City outside the walls. Alpin wants to take a more modern, technological approach to managing the alien threat. Davis, on the other hand, would rather stick with tried-and-true methods, like training the guard and keeping the wall standing strong.

False Positives

After the events of Defensive Measures, False Positives will see us once again helping Keoni Alpin and Davis Wilson deal with a growing threat from the local Ashta population. But this time, someone within the city guard is actively riling up the local alien population and causing them to attack.

During False Positives, Davis Wilson determines something much bigger, stronger, and more powerful is out in the wilds among the Ashta. For Leader of the Pack, you must patrol outside the East Gate of Akila City to determine this new threat and, inevitably, take it down for good.

It’s unfortunate, but someone is robbing the local Laredo Arms in The Great Laredo Caper. A group of children standing around outside of the gunshop have a lead, and they want your help in tracking down and apprehending the criminal. So, you’ll need to wait until midnight strikes and then hit up the local Laredo Shooting Range to find the culprit.

Over at the Low House, you’ll find Amira Wolf, a young woman needing a helping hand in Charity of the Wolf. At first, it’s simple. You must restart the farming equipment outside the city. But the problem escalates when Ashtas appear and attack. Afterward, you will need to solicit donations from many of the local vendors and politicians in Akila City to help the Low House.

In Beer Run, Sarah believes her husband has a winning farming operation that could feed all of the Freestar Collective and not just Akila City. Unfortunately, he’s more concerned with brewing beer for the local tavern. She asks you to sabotage the latest batch to burn his side gig to the ground so that he’ll focus on the family operation instead.

Rough Landings

You will find Marko Jansen lounging in The Stretch, near the Low House, and he needs help with his family in the United Colonies. His wife’s cousin, Milena Alexrod, is aboard The Dalliance, but it comes under attack by Crimson Fleet soon after you jump into the system. A bit of space combat, some persuasion, and a little bit of travel will see you through Rough Landings.

Mr. Tate, the local realtor, requires a hand in clearing out Hard Rock on his land in Blast Zone. You’ll need a cutter to tackle this mundane work, which amounts to nothing more than landscaping. But for your efforts, Tate will pay you a tidy sum, and you’ll earn some experience points, too.

The Best Side Quests in Akila City

Of the nine available side quests in Akila City, we recommend focusing efforts on the following:

  • Defensive Measures
  • False Positives
  • Leader of the Pack
  • The Great Laredo Caper
  • Rough Landings

The first three are part of a series that deals with the local Ashta population, and the other two just provide good fun.

When you’re done working through the side quests in Akila City, we recommend jumping to the Altair Star System for Groundpounder!
