The GrimHEX Outlaw Base
For the first time in Star Citizen, those that live outside the law now have a base of operations! The Grim HEX outlaw base is a home away from home for those that choose to live outside the United Empire of Earth’s laws. There’s plenty to discover at Grim HEX, including a pair of stores: Skutters is a guns and armor shop with a focus on energy weapons, and KC Trending is a new clothing store with unique merchandise, but that’s only the beginning. Grim HEX will continue to expand with future patches with the addition of a bar, criminal missions and outlaw racing area.
Grim HEX isn’t just a cool place to explore: it’s also an essential evolution of Star Citizen’s faction and reputation system. With Alpha 2.5, lawbreakers will now spawn (and respawn) at Grim HEX and will also no longer have Port Olisar as a Quantum Travel option.
Grim HEX is located deep in the Yela asteroid belt, and you’ll need to explore the region yourself to locate it. Or, just ask an outlaw… they’re a trustworthy sort!
Sidebar: Green Imperial Housing Exchange
Housing Exchanges (also known as HEXs) are a popular style of cheap stations built into hollowed asteroids in an effort to save money on construction materials. HEXs offer affordable housing as well as shopping and entertainment options for temporary workers fulfilling contracts in the area. The simplicity of their build made them easy to maintain and their signature hexagonal honeycombed pieces made them exceedingly durable. Though originated by Everline Structures Inc, this style of station has been adopted by a variety of manufacturers because of their relatively low cost to build and operate, you can find these stations in various forms all over the universe.
