The main goal in Anthem, aside from finding epic loot and making your javelin look badass, is to protect the citizens of Fort Tarsis. Along the way, you’ll find yourself aligning with three separate factions: Freelancers, Arcanists, and Sentinels. Completing tasks for each group earns you different rewards like new blueprints or materials to customize your javelin and changes the appearance of Fort Tarsis.

As great as Anthem is, the game doesn’t do a good job at explaining what activities count towards leveling up your Faction Loyalty. So we’ve created a guide to help you on your journey to unlocking everything Anthem has to offer. Make sure to check out our other Anthem guides:
