Base assault is an attack on the player's outpost where an army of a faction raids the player's outpost to either attack the inhabinants or steal resources and items. It was introduced in version 0.60.0.
Causes of base assaultEdit
Base assaults occur when players are hostile with a faction or, if the player is being extorted out of their cats via racketeering or taxing, base assault can happen if the player refuses to pay the faction. Sometimes base assaults can just be random.
Once the faction enters the outpost with their army, the player has about a few minutes to interact with them, which gives them a few options to coerce them to cease the base assault, such as bribing them by giving up all the funds or half of them, if persuaded. If the player doesn't interact the invading army for awhile, they will automatically attack and raid the player's outpost of their items and resources. If there are any of the player's squad members, the army will attack them first before looting the outpost.
Attacking the invading army after bribing them with valuables will not recover them.
