What are Star Atlas Claim Stakes?

Explore the Role of Claim Stakes in Star Atlas

Claim Stakes are the foundation of planetary gameplay loops in Star Atlas. They are physical objects that must be transported to a chosen planet to lay claim to a plot on its surface. Claiming a planetary plot grants the owner access to extracting available local resources and building in-planet infrastructure.

Claim Stakes play an important role in the Golden Era. All planetary gameplay loops, such as farming, extracting, and refining resources, require that players successfully establish and maintain a claim stake on an open planet surface. Space squatting is discouraged with a tax to maintain ownership of the plot.

Players can also enlist their Claim Stakes in Faction Claims to receive rewards.
