Dead State Wiki

The To-Do List consists of missions that can be found through exploration, events and conversations.

The To-Do List is a collection of tasks and favors brought up by allies – everything from checking out a certain location to recovering a particular item. While completing tasks on the To-Do list won’t earn you any Skill Points, often they do important things like boost ally mood, unlock helpful loot, and sometimes prevent the death or loss of an ally. It’s definitely worth your while to pay close attention to when the tasks were brought up – some are time-sensitive, and will become unavailable if you wait too long!

If an ally specifically suggested something like going to the hospital and you don't, they may think you're ignoring their advice and lose confidence in you. They will usually tell you if they think something should be an immediate priority, so if you agree to do it, try to get it done on time.

Some missions are time sensitive. For those that are not keep in mind that as time goes on, the chance that a location has already been looted goes up, meaning you may get less from it than if you had gone earlier

The mission interface shows missions by how much time remains for them (from expiring today to no time limit) and a list of completed objectives.

On top of Missions there are also Goals.

There are several types of goals in the game, and most likely the player will reveal them constantly as they discover new areas, talk to people, and complete other goals. The goals fall under the following categories:

  • Reoccurring Goals – Milestones for food, fuel, parts collected, etc.
  • Exploration Goals – Goals for exploring areas.
  • Challenge Goals – Goals with specific or difficult requirements.

In addition to visible goals, there are some goals that are hidden until they are completed. These are goals you might not usually seek out or want to do, but constitute experience that shapes the role of a leader. These hidden goals are usually due to making a tough decision or sacrifice.

Remarks[ | ]

The list is take from the To Do list in the game.

The game doesn't seem to handle things well if you do them out of sequence in regards to the To Do lists.

Some tasks get double entries, possibly because more people can give them.

Some tasks are said to be given by Allies that were never recruited(in my case I never recruited Effrem, Grant, Clifford, Lloyd, Sandy

Some tasks seem to remain open even though you fulfilled them, like getting the medicine for Jenifer. If you went to the Strong residence before she asks you too it doesn't get updated. In this case it would probably be wise to wait until the tasks appears on the to do list.
