You will receive the following reward:
  • Up to 25 x Fleet mark Fleet Marks (1x for each successful freighter)

Fleet Transport Defense, also known as Fleet Starbase Blockade, is a 5 players-event in which the team must defend a number of freighters from a random enemy fleet. It can be accessed through the PvE queues and has a 30 minute cooldown.


The team will have one minute to read the mission briefing. After that, freighters will begin spawning at random, at any of eight waypoints (see walkthrough for details). Following it is a large squadron of enemy ships, who will begin targeting the freighter. You must engage these ships and buy time for each freighter to reach the safety of the starbase.

There is no success or failing criteria for this mission; the number of Fleet marks earned is equivalent to the number of transports saved. There are twenty-five in total.


Mission text[]

Defend as many tranports as you can!


  • Read Mission Briefing
    • Defend transports (15:00)



The enemy faction you will face is randomly determined by the game engine. The more advanced the fleet starbase is, the more factions the game will choose from.
