The Sims 4 Star Wars Journey to Batuu: Resistance Rank Overview

In The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu, your Sim will find themselves caught in the middle of three factions at odds with each other in Batuu; The First Order, Resistance, and Scoundrels. Each faction controls a different sector of the city and who you support is entirely up to you. Each faction has five ranks your Sim can progress through by completing missions for them. Each rank brings new rewards and unlockables, but beware; becoming friendly with one faction could make other factions hostile towards you.

This overview covers the Resistance ranks. Talk to Any Resistance Member in the Resistance Encampment to receive your first Resistance mission and begin rising in their ranks. After gaining their trust by completing a few missions, you will meet Vi Moradi. After that point, you can receive all your Resistance missions directly from her. She can often be found near the X-wing ship.

Gaining ranks in the Resistance will decrease your reputation with the First Order. Sims who are part of the First Order will be hostile towards you.

First Order Basic Info

  • Receive Missions From: Any Resistance Member, Vi Moradi
  • Batuu Location: Resistance Encampment
  • Ship: X-wing
  • Main Hangout: Resistance Outpost (embedded in a rockface between two clusters of tents)

Gaining the Trust of the Resistance

The first Resistance mission you will need to complete to earn their trust

Unlike the First Order and Scoundrels, you won’t be able to waltz right into Resistance territory and start getting missions from them straight away. The Resistance are suspicious of outsiders and won’t let you become one of them until you’ve proven yourself to be their ally. In fact, they won’t even introduce you to their leader at all until you’ve completed a few test missions for them to prove where your loyalties lie.

To get started, ask Any Resistance Member about the Resistance. They will tell you that using the phrase “Ignite the Spark” with a Resistance member will yield more information. Speak to any Resistance member and use the “Ignite the Spark” social on them. They will offer you a mission called Leap of Faith. Accept the mission.

Mission 1: Leap of Faith

Objectives

  • Talk to First Order Stormtroopers
  • Analyze the TIE echelon
  • Survey First Order Supply Crates
  • Report Back to any Resistance Member

Walkthrough

Head to the First Order District and do a Friendly Introduction on two Stormtroopers in the area. Then head to the TIE echelon ship in the same area and analyze it. Make sure there aren’t any First Order members on the ship platform when you do this or you’ll be issued a warning. Next, head to the First Order Cargo Hold and survey the supply crate located around back near the small circular garden. This supply crate is out of the way so there is less chance of getting caught by a First Order member, but Stormtroopers still like to patrol this little nook so wait for them to walk away before you survey the crate. Report back to the Resistance member you received the mission from to complete this mission.

Mission 2: Risks and Rewards

After completing Leap of Faith, talk to Any Resistance Member in the encampment and use the “Ignite the Spark” social again. You’ll get a new mission called Risks and Rewards. Nope, you haven’t earned their trust, yet. Get cracking on that mission!

Objectives

  • Acquire a Dataspike from the Scoundrel Contact
  • Obtain Comm Tower Access Codes
  • Disrupt First Order Transmission
  • Report back to any Resistance Member

Walkthrough

Head to Oga’s Cantina in the Black Spire Outpost and look for the Sim with the “Scoundrel Contact” role above their heads when you scroll over them. It might take them a while to spawn so wait around a bit. They’ll hand over the Dataspike easily when you ask. Then go to the First Order District and find any control panel. They look like apartment intercom boxes stationed outside many of the doors. Click directly on the panel (the casing isn’t clickable for whatever odd reason) to analyze it. Keep analyzing the control panel until one of the slicing options available has a green thumbs up next to it, then use that method to slice into it. Slicing the control panel will use up the Dataspike you got from the Scoundrel Contact. After successfully slicing the control panel, click it again to get the Comm Tower Access Codes. Next, go to the Comm Tower near the Droid Depot. It’s the control panel embedded into a large pole with wires and cloth strung from the top of it. Select Disrupt First Order Transmission on the control panel, then head back to the Resistance Encampment to report back and complete the mission.

Mission 3: Forest Flight

The Resistance now trusts you, but their leader wants to see you in action for herself to make sure you’re the real deal. Find Vi Moradi in the Resistance Encampment to receive your next mission, Forest Flight.

Objectives

  • Meet Vi Moradi
  • Scramble First Order Starfighter Traffic Monitoring Systems
  • Replace X-wing Parts
  • Fly Distraction Mission

Walkthrough

Find Vi Moradi in the Resistance Encampment and choose Meet Vi Moradi under the Resistance options. She’ll give you the rest of your mission objectives. Then head over to the First Order District and go back to the Comm Tower near the Droid Depot to scramble the Starfighter Traffic Monitoring Systems. Next, ask Any Resistance Member about X-wing parts. They’ll tell you to buy the parts from Scoundrels at Oga’s Cantina. Go there and start chatting up a Scoundrel. You’ll need to get your friendship bar filled roughly 1/3 before the option to purchase X-wing parts becomes available. Each X-wing part costs 100gc (Galactic Credits) and you need 5 X-wing parts, so you’ll be spending 500gc in total. You should have enough credits from the last two missions so this isn’t an issue. You can purchase all 5 X-wing parts from the same Scoundrel. After obtaining all 5 X-wing parts, go back to the Resistance Encampment and replace the parts on the X-wing. Then select the X-wing to fly the distraction mission. Click through the adventure popups until you return to Batuu, then report back to Vi Moradi to complete the mission.

Now that you’ve impressed Vi herself, your Sim is officially welcomed into the Resistance! From now on, you can get all your Resistance missions directly from Vi Moradi.


Resistance Ranks

You’ll already have gotten to Rank 1 of the Resistance by the time you complete the three missions to gain their trust. See below for a breakdown of each rank’s rewards and unlockables.

Rank 1: Sympathizer

Rewards:

  • Galactic Credits
  • Resistance Parka
  • Hatch Elaborate Plan interaction

New Purchasable Items from Holotable:

  • Dataspike
  • Model TD2.3 Electrobinoculars

Other Notes:

  • Dataspikes can be used to slice into control panels. They are a one-time use and can get costly to purchase, so save all the ones you get as rewards for when you need them. You will be slicing into control panels frequently on Resistance missions. Alternatively, you can use a droid to slice into control panels if you have one.
  • The Electrobinoculars can be used on spacecraft explorations in Batuu. They can also be displayed as decor when you return home.

Resistance Parka – Unlocked at Rank 1 of the Resistance


Rank 2: Recruit

Rewards

  • Galactic Credits
  • X-wing Pilot Outfit
  • Resistance Banners
  • Recruit interaction
  • Access through the Resistance Security Door

New Purchasable Items from Holotable:

  • Thermal Detonator

Other Notes: 

  • The Resistance Security Door is located in the Resistance Outpost in the Resistance Encampment on Batuu. It’s tricky to find as it is partially concealed in the side of a rockface. The door leads to the Resistance Holotable, which has a variety of useful functions for Resistance members, including the ability to buy various goods you may need on your missions.
  • The Resistance Banners won’t be usable on Batuu. When you travel back home, they will be in your Sim’s inventory and you can drag them onto the walls to display them.
  • The Thermal Detonator can be used on spacecraft explorations in Batuu. It can also be displayed as decor when you return home.

X-wing Pilot Outfit – Unlocked at Rank 2 of the Resistance


Rank 3: Lieutenant

Rewards:

  • Galactic Credits
  • Tell Tales of Galactic Adventure interaction

New Purchasable Items from Holotable:

  • DL-44 Blaster
  • Fake ID Card

Other Notes:

  • The DL-44 Blaster can be used on spacecraft explorations in Batuu. It can also be displayed as wall decor when you return home.
  • The Fake ID card can be used on spacecraft explorations in Batuu. You may also be able to avoid arrest when a First Order member checks your ID if you have a Fake ID Card in your inventory, but confirmation is needed about this.

Rank 4: Specialist

Rewards:

  • Galactic Credits
  • Blue Kyber Crystal
  • Lightsaber Hilt
  • Resistance Jacket
  • Resistance Vest
  • Resistance Hat
  • Enthuse About Stopping the First Order interaction

New Purchasable Items from Holotable:

  • Comlink

Other Notes:

  • Having both the Blue Kyber Crystal and the Lightsaber Hilt will allow you to combine them and create the Sturdy Protection and Defense Lightsaber, which you can use to duel with other Sims on Batuu.
  • The Comlink can be used on spacecraft explorations in Batuu.
  • Although the notification lists a vest, jacket, and hat separately as rewards for this rank, I was only able to find a full-body outfit and a matching hat as new CAS unlocks after reaching this rank.

Resistance Outfit – Unlocked at Rank 4 of the Resistance


Rank 5: Sergeant

Rewards

  • Galactic Credits
  • X-wing Replica
  • Yellow Kyber Crystal
  • X-wing Explore interaction

New Purchasable Items from Holotable:

  • None

Other Notes:

  • The Yellow Kyber Crystal can be swapped with the Blue Kyber Crystal in your Lightsaber Hilt. There doesn’t appear to be any noticeable difference between the two lightsabers. The type of hilt appears to matter more than the type of crystal used to power it; however, I am still gathering info on this and will update this guide if I make any new discoveries about this.
  • The X-wing Replica is a decorative statue you can place in your house back in your home world.
