"The furthest reaches of the Empire, out on the edge of the Frontier."
— In-game Description


The Northern Frontier is the first region players are introduced to. In it are various locations that players discover as they advance throughout the game; some locations stay as places that can be permanently visited and assisted, while some can only be visited in Missions and disappear after they are completed.

The Infected occasionally spawn here and have a chance at dropping Black Nanopods.

The Western Ocean, Southern Frontier, and Eastern Wastes can be accessed in the Northern Frontier layer.

Player's Outpost[]

Lvls. 1-70


"Home Sweet Dusty, Windy Home. The Outpost is the only place in the Frontier where pretty much no one is trying to kill you. Except all the invaders."

The Outpost is your home base.

Recoil Ridge[]

Lvl. 2


"The northernmost 'official' imperial settlement. The Imperial frontier is peaceful, though not without hidden dangers. Hostile wildlife in the north means settlements like this need to keep their guard up."

Recoil Ridge is the closest Imperial settlement to the player's Outpost. Raiders, Rebels, and Silver Wolves are eventually encountered here throughout the game.


Lvl. 30


"Marin used to be the furthest north Imperial frontier-town, but it's grown into a city of its own. Far away from the Rebellion and wars of the south, many privileged citizens have summer homes here for the scenic views of the mountain ranges."

Marin is the largest Imperial settlement in the Northern and Southern Frontier. Its shops cannot be assisted. Unlike most Frontier towns, Marin does not have a named leader.


Lvl. 30

Travel Greenborough icon@2x

"About 10 miles from Marin, its residents would often claim they lived in the more interesting, metropolitan Marin instead. Its meager population consisted mostly of skilled laborers, constructing tank parts to be shipped elsewhere in the empire."

Greenborough is a small Imperial settlement that was shortly taken over by Rebel Forces after the mission "The Siege of Marin". It is the only Imperial settlement in the Northern Frontier that can be raided.

Tronk's Base[]

Lvl. 25

TronkBase icon

"Tronk's Outpost. The most direct of Warlord Gantas' Lieutenants, his outpost looks sparse and undefended, but when most of its inhabitants can fire dozens of rockets from long distance, does it really need walls?"

Sarin's Base[]

Lvl. 25

SarinBase icon

Blade's Base[]

Blade's Base is where Blades in Moonlight, one of Warlord Gantas's three lieutenants, lurks in the shadows. Her base is where the Raiders get most of their Oil.

Raider Depot[]

Lvl. 10


"I guess you could consider this a 'supply depot' but it looks more like a bunch of tents with useless junk in them."

The Raider Depot is a location that Ramsey later targets to weaken Warlord Gantas's blood-hungry Raiders' resolve.

Raider Training Camp[]

Lvl. 10


Raiders have been sighted in this area crawling under low walls and climbing over high walls. They must be insurgents."

Ancient Vault[]

Lvl. 26

Travel ancientVaultRuins icon@2x

"A massive vault, built by the Ancients long ago. Was this once a fallout shelter, which protected a civilization of vault dwellers from the horrors of a forsaken world? No. No it wasn't."

Once controlled by Raiders, but later liberated by Percival and Perkins, the Ancient Vault is home to a massive vault that hides ancient tourist trinkets.

Ancient Laboratory[]

Lvl. 48

Travel ancientLab icon@2x

"The wrecked hulk of what was once an impressive research facility. Is it scarier now, as a ghostly ruin, or when it was fully functional and spitting out giant mechanical monstrosities? It's hard to say."

The Ancient Laboratory, or Sector 8, is an ancient site that was restricted by The Empire. Percival finds a special ancient object here, though only after he and Perkins defeat a group of scavenging Silver Wolves.
