Some of the Ruins in your region could still contain valuable Resources and Seeds for Fields and Orchards. In order to collect valuable things you have to send Expedition to them.

Expeditions can be prepared and launched at the Expedition Station, every destination on the map need to be explored by a Scout who will bring back detailed information about Ruins and unlocked them for future Expedition. Then Explorers can be sent out to collect resources and special objects from those locations.

Scouts are the workforce of the Expedition Station, when not exploring they produce Expedition Ration with Food and Water.


Ruins may reward you with:

  • various supplies for your stores (food, medicine, raw materials, etc)
  • Research utensils and/or Research points
  • Proficiency badges, as your explorers learn in the field
  • Additional surviving Settlers to join your colony
  • Side Tasks to perform
  • Completed technologies
  • Seeds
  • Unique Decorations

Once finished, the ruin itself may be marked for salvage, which lets a Scrapyard recycle it. Those ruins are marked with a green completion check-mark on the map.

Send an Expedition[]

Some ruins are labelled as "nothing special", with just a list of loot. You do not need Expedition Rations for these, just enough Settlers to carry all the items back.

You must individually specify which Settler you want to Send on an Expedition, when doing so you must meet certain criteria to improve your chances of success. On an Expedition you must complete operation points, each operation cost an Expedition Ration per Explorer, the more Explorers you bring the more expedition ration it will cost, make sure you take enough to complete the ruin exploration or you'll have to go back another time. 

The criteria are given by the information bring back by the Scout, in the configure expedition window if you match a criterion the corresponding icon will light in green. Criteria give you an Advantage to prospect certain operation points with success, at the Ruin every point will tell you which criteria is require to complete successfully. If you cannot meet all criteria you can leave some operation uncompleted for a future expedition at the same Location.


  • You might have to give specific tools to your Explorers, if Scrap Tool is required any Tool will satisfy the criteria but sometime only Metal Tools will be sufficient.
  • You can give radiation Protection to you Explorer, even if the expedition do not require it your Settler will travel across potentially radiation contaminated ground. Take a look at your map before choosing between Neckscarf, Activated Carbon Mask or Radiation Suit.

Settlers characteristic[]

  • Some Expeditions required Explorer of a particular age, it might be about one explorer or all of them.
  • Education of one or all Explorer can also be necessary.
  • Most Ruins require special qualification from Settlers, those are called Badges and are acquired with time spend in the same profession. Badge known to be require in some expeditions;

Expedition running[]

Each expedition Ruins has a number of areas. You typically need 1 Expedition Ration per Explorer to complete each of those areas.

Areas are roughly split into two different categories: access and storage. Completing an access location gives you access to more locations. Completing a storage areas gives you potential loot, or special rewards.

Each of those areas may require special equipment and/or settlers characteristics to complete. Your chances of completing an area are displayed in a bar called "confidence" which summarizes the likelihood of unlocking access or fully looting it.

Your expedition can be ended without fully completing the ruins, notably if you lack some of the Badges required for some areas or did not bring enough Expedition Rations. Any leftover Expedition Ration will be returned to the stores.

At the end of the expedition, you are offered a window to select how much of the loot you have found can be carried back to the main Settlements. If you have not completed the Ruins or have not fully looted it, you can send a subsequent expedition to finish the job.

List of expeditions[]

Not all expeditions are available on any given map.
