Outpost

Why when we make an outpost we usually get 10 points and when we lose is more than 20?

    How many Influence Points you win when raiding or lose when defending is dependent on your Influence Points compared to your opponents.

    When you are raiding, if the IP it is about the same or yours is higher, then you will only receive the minimum 10 points for defeating the defenders. Same logic for when someone raids you. If they are well below your IP then you can lose up to 40 points (personal experience), but if they are well above your IP then sometimes you actually loose zero points.

    Hope that helps, happy hunting.

    @SCBMA Another curiosity: can you tell me how the game calculates the number of barter chests to steal from the opponent before starting the outpost? Are there several variables that determine that value?

    Might be wrong, but I believe the trade goods amount is determined by number of walkers defending and their strength

    The number of walkers captured, their types (normal and special) and their level determines the value of the trade good haul. This got capped though around level 23. So upgrading walkers past that level doesn’t increase trade good haul anymore.
