In-Depth Guide to Quasimorph

Tip #1: Understand Mission Prep

Your first mission (tutorial) in Quasimorph will have you immediately go into action in the Pine Gap Training Center. To that end, you’ll need to select an Operator, pick a Class, and outfit your Operator with the right gear.

This will be the standard procedure for every future mission, so you’ll need to learn it well. The interface for mission prep is relatively simple. The trick will be in understanding the advantages of specific operators and how to match them with the right Class and gear. To that end, we’ll need to break down each of these aspects.

Tip #2: Know Your Operators

Tip #4: Give the Right Gear to the Right Operator

The next tip is actually more related to common sense than anything else. Take note of your Operator’s stats and the bonuses they get from the chosen Class. Then, make sure to equip them with the gear that will enhance their skills and abilities.

For instance, if your Operator/Class is melee-focused, choose a solid melee weapon. For characters with lower health, pack some healing items. And for those with a lower starvation limit, get additional supplies to stave off hunger. In other words, don’t leave the choice of gear to chance!

Tip #5: Know When to Crouch and When to Run

You can move in three stances in Quasimorph: Sneaking, Walking, and Running. Walking will be your default stance, but you’ll usually want to change it relatively soon. Each stance comes with its ups and downs:

  • Sneaking makes you stealthy and consumes fewer calories, BUT you only get one AP per turn.
  • Walking doesn’t consume many calories and grants you two AP per turn, BUT you don’t get any specific advantages.
  • Running gives you three AP per turn and allows you to move swiftly, BUT consumes the most calories and reduces your accuracy.

Tip #6: Play Smart to Survive!

Some general tips will increase your chances of survival in every level. Here’s what to do in all missions:

  • Don’t move on to higher-difficulty missions if your Operators are too low-level.
  • Always gear up when you get the chance.
  • Inspect the enemy’s stats before engaging.
  • If an enemy is considerably stronger than you, try to engage them from a distance. Or better yet, simply run to cover!
  • Don’t get overwhelmed! At early levels, loot everything you can and extract with as little combat as possible.
  • Extract materials from body parts and gear for faster mission completion and more lucrative trading.
  • ALWAYS have a fire-resistance item with you!
  • NEVER spend your final action on venturing into an unexplored area, i.e., around a door!

Tip #7: Start on (or Around) Mars

Mars, Phobos, or Deimos missions are the best for beginners in Quasimorph. You’ll encounter less dangerous enemies and gain some great starter loot. That’s why this area of the Sun system should be your pick before you get stronger.

That being said, not all missions around the Red planet are ideal. In particular, you should steer clear of any mission that has you going against Tezctlan—as a beginner, your Operator could easily perrish there. Also, it would be best not to fight against AnCom, RealWare, or SBN because you’ll be able to trade well with those factions if you don’t ruin relations with them.

This wraps up our guide to Quasimorph. Act according to our suggestions, and you should be fine during the early/mid-game. And once you get your bearings, you’ll be on your way to becoming a veteran, capable of taking on harder challenges.
