This is a guide to Reputation and a list of Factions in the game The Outer Worlds. Learn about each Faction, where they are located, and how Reputation affects your relationship with each.

What is Reputation?


The Halcyon Colony is host to a number of Factions, each with their own personal objectives. As a result of your actions, you may come into favor or disfavor with each of these Factions during your adventures – this is measured by your Reputation.

Changing Reputation

Actions like completing objectives within Quests, killing individuals of a certain Faction, stealing items in an area belonging to a Faction, and others can affect your Reputation for that Faction.

Effects of Reputation

Having a good Reputation with a Faction will reduce the price of items for Vendors of that Faction. On the other hand, having a poor Reputation with a Faction will increase the price of Items in the same way. Remember to do your shopping first before going on a killspree!

If your Reputation with a Faction is too poor, you will be attacked by adherents of that Faction, so think twice before setting foot in their controlled areas.

Your Reputation will also affect the options available during Quests, so keep an eye on your reputation to ensure you can get your preferred ending for each Quest.

List of Primary Factions


A former colony ship turned space station, Groundbreaker is the only township in the system operating outside the Board's control. The Groundbreaker's crew are led by engineer-turned-captain Junlei Tennyson, and they are fiercely protective of their independence.


The Iconoclasts are a group of survivalists living in the ruins of Amber Heights on Monarch. Led by Graham Bryant, a staunch Philosophist, they hope to one day tear down the corporate establishment that they believe has brought the colony to the brink of death.

Monarch Stellar Industries

Once a loyal Board-owned corporation, Monarch Stellar Industries split off to become their own private entity under the leadership of Sanjar Nandi. Espousing worker-centric rights and democratic ideals, Sanjar seeks to bring his own brand of freedoms to the rest of Halcyon.

SubLight Salvage & Shipping

SubLight is a network of “salvagers” with business ties to “transportation” and “waste disposal.” A tangled web of contractors and secretive vice presidents make up their official hierarchy, leaving no one to speak on the record about SubLight's more legally-dubious activities.

The Board

The Halcyon Holdings Board of Directors is a group of CEOs from each of Halcyon's founding companies. Under the leadership of Chairman Rockwell, the CEO of Universal Defense Logistics, the board institutes policy and law throughout the Halcyon colony.

List of Secondary Factions

Auntie Cleo: It's better than nature!


The Deserters are a community of disillusioned workers who left the town of Edgewater. They live together in a makeshift camp located in the Botanical Lab district of Emerald Vale.
