Legacy Boons are starter bonuses that can be obtained by establishing Legacies (completing the game).

About Legacy Boons

Completing the game with each Leader Type can unlock you a different Legacy Boon. While all of them are beneficial, their usefulness depends on your playstyle and preferences.

When you unlock a Boon it will be permanently available for any future communities. By completing a Legacy you'll only unlock the Boon for the difficulty you played on and the ones below it.

Green Boon
Standard Boon
Dread Boon
Nightmare Boon
Lethal Boon

With this mechanic you don't have to complete all four legacies on all 5 difficulties to unlock each boon for each difficulty. Technically you only have to beat the game 4 times - with each leader type on Lethal - to unlock all of them.

When you already have Boons unlocked you'll get the opportunity to activate up to two of them for the community you're about to create.

Notes:

  • Completing the legacy of a community you started with a Custom Zone (using the difficulty sliders on the Custom Settings screen) will unlock you a Boon according to the minimum difficulty you were playing with.
  • If you raise your minimum difficulty mid-game and your currently active Boons are not unlocked yet for the difficulty you're about to change to, it will be deactivated and can't be reactivated for that community! The game will warn you in advance before it'd happen, so read everything the game puts infront of you.

Amenities (Builder Boon)

Base-wide power and water at any base with no fuel cost or threat.

Amenities is probably one of your go-to Boons when you're planning on creating a long-term community. It provides you with Power and Water for all of your facilities for free, saving you the time, effort, slots (facility or outpost), and other costs of hooking up your base with them by yourself.

To get this Boon you must complete a Legacy with a Builder leading your community. Unless it gets deactivated, the Boon will provide you with Power and Water throughout the entirety of your community's lifetime.

Favors (Trader Boon)

Receive a visit from a friendly trader (and 4000 Influence) after you settle your first base.

Favors is a great choice for getting a lot of items and resources when starting a new community. After you claim your first base you'll receive 4000 Influence. A survivor will also visit you for trading purposes, allowing you to fill your Locker and Storage with anything they have on stock.

After you finish the first missions the survivor will leave your base, however they're not gone forever! They're part of an Enclave called "The Boon Traders". Find them on your map and visit them anytime throughout your playtime to buy more stuff from them (their wares will replenish daily just like for other Enclaves).

To get this Boon you must complete a Legacy with a Trader leading your community. The 4000 Influence is a one-time reward per community and you'll leave behind the Boon Traders Enclave if you move to another map or the map gets reset due to changing the difficulty.

Charity (Sheriff Boon)

Receive a pile of high-quality loot from old friends once a day.

Charity will replace your Supply Runs with Daily Deliveries, earning you more and better items every in-game day before the evening Summary. You'll also receive a starter package of items as soon as you start a new community. Both the deliveries and the starter package will be delivered directly into your locker.

To get this Boon you must complete a Legacy with a Sheriff leading your community. The Starter Package is a one-time delivery. Unless it gets deactivated, the Boon will provide you with Daily Deliveries throughout the entirety of your community's lifetime. Otherwise they'll revert back into Supply Runs.
