Rebel Galaxy Outlaw has you flying among the stars, shooting pirates, stealing loot, and trading. A single system is a small place, though, and if you want to make your fortune, you need to travel to new systems in search of wealth and adventure. To do this, you need a jump drive. In this guide, we show you how to get it.
Rebel Galaxy Outlaw – How To Get A Jump Drive
The first time you need to travel to a new system is during the Nevada Bound mission, which happens early in the game. You need a jump drive to activate the jump gate. You can buy a jump drive from any of the stations that sell you supplies for your ship. But they are a little pricey. At 20,000 credits, you will need to spend some time doing missions in the first system. Visit a station, then go to the Equipment Bay, Components, and then scroll to the right until you see the jump drive option.
It is a good idea to work your way through the mission board and perhaps joining one of the Guilds to get access to new missions with better payouts. Mostly, you want to keep in mind that this is the first area, so you are expected to grind a little bit to get used to the controls and how the game works. It is also a good idea to visit the bartender, who often has tips on ways to make a little money.
If you take a mission that ends up being too tough for you, leave it and come back later. If you die while out in space, you return to your last save, which usually happens as you enter and exit space stations. As such, you can lose progress and credits if you are not careful.
When you do get your jump drive, look at the region map to decide where you want to go and then head for the relevant gate to make the jump. You can hold the autopilot button to arrive at the gate, saving you some time.
