Rescue is a mission type in Heat Signature.


The purpose of this mission type is to rescue an NPC from within a ship and bring them back to a friendly station.


  • Equipment cannot be used while carrying an NPC, so ensure you have a clear route back to your pod.
  • Blowing out a window in the same room as yourself and your target will send you both into space, the target cannot however spend much time in space.
  • The Angel Pod can be used to great effect in these mission types to quickly save the target and yourself.


  • This mission type may show up as a person mission to rescue a previous character that was captured. This will show up as a character's Personal Mission and have a special note on it indicating that if completed, the character will once again be playable.
    • You can also rescue a Steam friend's character that has been captured as well.
