If you've jumped in Gigantic X, the latest alien infested shooter to land on mobile, then you've probably also noticed that there are loads of missions for you to jump in to, by yourself or with friends.

Well it's true, if you want to play a game which has mission after mission of alien slaying and a bunch of enemies to kill, weapons to craft, and much more, this is definitely a good place to start. But the question is, what are the minor differences between missions?

And it's a darn good question, as that isn't immediately obvious. But in this quick guide, we're going to run through and break down the different kinds of missions that you will find in Gigantic X, which are the easiest to undertake, and which will have you excelling and leveling up most quickly.

So just read on below for our full breakdown of the different Megacorp missions in Gigantic X - Frontline missions will have to wait for another day…

Missions and Urgent Missions

You'll find all of your available missions in the Megacorp section of the battle menu, where you'll have a variety of missions to undertake spread across four planets. Each of these missions can give you lovely rewards, and level you up as you go, and we'll go into more detail with that in just a moment.

But there is an outlier, and those are Urgent Missions. Urgent Missions will appear in red, and these are limited time missions which disappear if you fail. No retries here, you need to get it right the first time, which can be a pain.

But they're certainly not impossible, especially in Rookie mode. Just pick a strong mercenary, make sure they're fully equipped, and then charge into battle in the Urgent Mission. These missions usually require fighting a boss monster, so be prepared for a big battle, and bigger rewards.

The exploration missions are simple enough, you get dropped onto an alien world, and you should be exploring, but you'll be killing aliens more often than not.

One you touch down an arrow will point you where to go, and will disappear once you encounter aliens. Encounter, kill, explore, repeat until done.

Defend location

The defend location missions are pretty obvious, you just defend a location. Like Domination in Call of Duty, or something like that.

It's pretty simple, aliens will be coming at you, and you'll be keeping them away. Titan's large axe swings are good for this mission type.

Destroy nests

There will be a bunch of alien egg nests spread around the map, and you'll be taking them down before they can hatch.

Aliens will attack of course, but that just comes with the territory. The alien territory. Yes.

Droid activation

Droid activation is similar to defend location missions, except each droid you defend and activate will awaken to help you kill aliens. Lovely.

This means it actually gets easier as the mission goes on. No complaints from me!

Mine energy

The mine energy mission is interesting, mostly because you never actually mine anything. Plot twist! Instead, aliens will drop gems and crystals for you to collect.

Not exactly mining, no, but this game loves killing aliens, and we wont turn down an opportunity to do so.
