Missions are the main way to progress within the game. Some missions are randomly initiated by different means such as those in the Public Combat Zones. Upon completion of Missions the players would get rewards such as credits and/or items. Below are the different kinds of missions a player gets within the game.

Encounter Missions - Are missions that will be activated when your are in close proximity to the npc that are related to that specific mission.
Daily Missions – Navigate an instance to defeat a super-villain boss. Daily missions can be completed solo or with a group. Difficulty for these missions will scale with the number of players in your group.
Group Challenges – The goal of group challenges is to navigate an instance and close three “Energy Rifts,” then defeat the super-villain boss occupying that instance. Each group challenge is designed for a group of five player; these challenges will be extremely difficult to solo.
Survival Challenges – The goal of a survival challenge is to overcome waves of enemies that culminate in a super-villain boss. Each wave lasts a set amount of time and, at the end of that time, all remaining enemies vanish. Shortly afterward, the next wave begins and more enemies will appear. The final wave is a boss which has no time limit. An example of this is the Midtown Patrol & X-Defense.
