Story and Gameplay

Freelancers would object to being labeled as ‘good guy’ or ‘outlaw’. They would likely object to practically any label. While Freelancers may not be as clearly defined as the other two Origins - they are free to carve their own path and define themselves as they see fit, not caring what others may call or think of them. The Freelancer Origin has grown considerably as the many seasons have passed and today, it holds equal status with the other two Origins. They have earned an honorable place in the HWS Universe and therefore warrant similar benefits and advantages. This origin is for the die-hard rebel who simply must play his or her own way.

Here are some of the guiding principles, requirements, features and benefits if you choose Freelancer as your Origin:

  • The Freelancer Origin weapon is the Laser Rifle (Epic) 2076
  • Less focus on Pirating, PVP, trading or policing & more time spent on exploration & completing missions
  • Freelancers are in a unique position to align themselves both with Federation and/or with Outcasts
  • Freelancers are free from many of the restrictions and limitations the Federation and Outcasts are bound by
  • Ally with the Talon NPC Faction
