How to Increase Your Connection Level

1. Completing Orders

Your Connection Level with a given character increases whenever you complete an Order for that character. Also, the higher a ranking you receive for the Order, the more your Connection Level with that character will increase, so be sure to aim for S Rank as much as possible.

★ Tip: Opt for Premium Orders

Upon completing Order No. 27, you'll gain the option to complete “Premium Orders” with greater risks and rewards. On completing a Premium Order, your Connection Level will increase at a greater rate than usual, so it's recommended to prioritize completing these Orders to boost your Connection Level quickly.

2. Returning Lost Items

Methods for Returning Lost Items
1 Deposit them at any Base
2 Recommended
Return them personally to the owner

On the map, you will sometimes see “lost items” displayed. When you pick up these lost items, the location of the owner will be marked on the map, and when you take a lost item to the owner directly, your Connection Level will increase.

It is also possible to take lost items to any base and deposit them there, but the Connection Level earned will be decreased slightly, so it's recommended to take the lost item to the owner directly if possible.

Merits of Increasing Your Connection Level
