*Please remember that Atlas Reactor is still in development, so the answers found here may change.
- What is Atlas Reactor?
Atlas Reactor is a free-to-play, competitive team tactics game from Trion Worlds. It’s a genre-defining new game that combines simultaneous turns with tactical team combat. The best way to understand what it is, is to play.
When you do, you’ll jump into battle as any one of a growing selection of Freelancers, each with unique personalities, roles, and abilities. Once you enter the world of Atlas, you’ll rely on sharp weapons and sharper wits to outplay enemy teams in fierce multiplayer, co-op games, and custom matches.
- What was Free Mode 1.0?
Free Mode 1.0 was part of an earlier release of Atlas Reactor, where gamers were allowed to play a weekly rotation of Freelancers in regular PvP, but were not able to purchase or earn individual Freelancers.
After listening to feedback from the community, Atlas Reactor is now fully free to play.
- What if I played Free Mode 1.0?
Any rewards that you earned while playing Free Mode are yours to keep.
Now, you’ll be able to earn Flux as you play to purchase Freelancers, master skins, and mod tokens. You’ll also be able to play Ranked Mode after unlocking 10 Freelancers (including the ones in your free rotation).
- Can I play characters in-game for free?
Atlas Reactor includes a Free Rotation that allows gamers to play as a range of different Freelancers for free. Freelancers can also be purchased directly, or with Flux, an in-game currency earned through regular gameplay.
- Can I buy characters?
Yes. You’ll be able to purchase Freelancers with Flux, an in-game currency earned through regular gameplay, and through direct purchase.
Additionally, every new player will get 1 Freelancer for free on their account just by completing 10 PvP matches.
- Are there bonuses for owning characters?
Yes. The more Freelancers you own, the more bonus account and character XP you will earn per match, to a maximum of 100%.
- What if I owned an edition prior to the F2P update?
If you own an edition of Atlas Reactor, you’ll still get every Freelancer, forever! Each one will be unlocked for you as soon as they’re released. In addition to that, you will also earn Flux from regular gameplay that you’ll be able to use to purchase master skins and mod tokens.
If you became an Edition owner prior to the F2P update, you will also receive a special emblem, banner, and title in thanks for your support of the game.
- Are there advantages to being an edition owner?
Yes. As an owner, you won’t have to wait to use and unlock Freelancers, new or old. You’ll also have enough Freelancers to play competitively in Ranked (as soon as you’ve played 50 PvP games).
On top of that, each match you play will net you the maximum, 100% bonus to XP gains.
- What is Flux?
Flux is an in-game currency earned through regular gameplay, such as playing and completing matches, finishing missions, and more. This currency is used to purchase Freelancers, master skins, and mod tokens.
- What is ISO?
ISO is an in-game currency that is obtainable from Loot Matrices. Duplicate items received from Loot Matrices are automatically converted to ISO. Players can use ISO to unlock items in their Seasonal Collection directly.
- How much do characters cost?
Freelancers of every role (Firepower, Frontline, or Support) come in a variety of price ranges, from $2.99 to $7.49, or 10,000 to 75,000 Flux.
- What are GG Boosts?
GG Boosts provide a bonus to the XP and Flux earned for completing a match. Use a GG Boost during a match and EVERYONE in the match gets a bonus! The user of the boost gets a larger bonus than the other players.
GG Boosts also stack. The more GG Boosts used, the greater the total bonus for everyone. When 4 boosts are used (half the players in a PvP match), an extra bonus is applied. When all 8 players use a boost, an even bigger bonus is granted to everyone!
- What are Loot Matrices?
Loot Matrices are progression rewards earned for every season level gained. Typical Loot Matrices contain 3 items from the game, including banners, emblems, and skins, but excluding promotional content and newly released seasonal skins. Loot Matrices can also be purchased directly from the store.
- What are Mod Tokens?
Mod tokens are used to unlock Ability Mods (which allow you to customize your abilities). They can be earned by leveling up characters.
- What are Banners?
A Banner is the visual, in-game identifier for your account! It shows up in a variety of places, including scoreboards, friends lists, when you use taunts, and when you use GG Boosts.
Banners consist of a background, an emblem, and titles, in addition to your Glyph tag. Backgrounds, emblems, and titles are all collectible and can be mixed and matched to your liking. You can get them in a variety of different ways, including loot matrices, account progression, Freelancer progression, and ELO rank.

Skins are a customization option that changes the visual appearance of your Freelancer. They can encompass anything from pattern, texture, and color variants to full model changes.
