Escalation messages

Low chance of escalating to the Guristas Scout Outpost

Escalation Message


Please note: Once in a while, battles in Deadspace tend to escalate due to you being able to track down the origins/destinations of enemy messages or finding compromising plans or data in ship wrecks.

These are called Escalations and normally escalate further and further, eventually sending you on a final trip to Low Security Space. These Final complexes are dangerous not only because of the NPC enemies but as well due to player pirates roaming the area and scanning your ship down but the rewards can include special pirate modules like p.e. the Pithum-C-Type Shield Hardeners or even pirate-modded POS/pirate ship Blueprints.

Note also that Escalation "Trees" might lead to a "Dead End" which would result in you getting no further escalation messages for that escalation path. This can even be achieved by shooting ships at the wrong time.
