Friendship Level Increase Methods
Use the methods below to increase friendship levels. Each method gives different results and various amounts of XP boosts and rewards depending on what you are doing and who you are doing it with.
|Hangout||A hangout can happen after completing a mission together. This can involve any activity you choose, but the activity does depend on the hero you are hanging out with. The choice can strengthen or weaken your bond so choose wisely.|
|Gifts||The right gift can boost your bond, while a badly chosen gift can weaken the bond between you, rather like the choice of activity during a hangout.|
|Havens||There are double the amount of rewards when you spend time with a friend at a Haven. Spending time with a hero at a Haven is a special sort of hangout. Havens are limited- there are not many of them and you can only take a hero there once. This means it is important to use your time there wisely. Choose the perfect Gift and an activity they would love to reap the rewards.|
|Conversations||Having a good chat with a friend is important. Engage in conversations with your heroes and remember to compliment them to increase your friendship strength. The choices you make on topic and compliments determine how much XP and rewards you get. If they ask for help, make sure you oblige to really strengthen your bond. Use Superlink to engage with heroes via the social network.|
|Sparring||Sparring does not give you lots of XP but generally it is just a bit of fun, not a lot of help in increasing a bond.|
That is all you need to know about friendships in Marvel’s Midnight Suns! Remember- keep interacting and spending time with your heroes to increase that bond and gain rewards. Next up, why not check out how to unlock all skins in Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Good luck!
