Overview[edit | edit source]
Side missions are selected from the terminal in the main base. Any mission that is not urgent can be considered a side mission and they come in a range of varieties and difficulties. Unlike the story missions, aborting a side mission will result from it being removed from the terminal and replaced with a different one. As players progress through the story, the pay out and difficulties of the side missions will increase accordingly.
