    Jack's tips #6: Paint jobs

    There are a number of lists of Starlink paint jobs on the Web, but I haven't found a complete one yet. I believe the following list is complete. I've broken it up into where the paint jobs come from.



    Defeating a Prime

    To get a paint job from defeating a Prime, you must deliver the core to an outpost. Expedition outposts and Prospector outposts have two different lists of paint jobs they randomly pick from. Each list has 2 Epic and 2 Rare paint jobs.

    As far as I can tell, the only things affecting which paint job you get is the faction running the outpost, and random chance. At first it might appear to be different on different planets, but I've come to the conclusion that's just because you have to defeat about a hundred Primes before you can start to see the real pattern.

    Expedition outposts (Observatory and Workshop):
    • Epic: Fundamental Theorem, Red Law
    • Rare: Decomposite, Two Factors

    Prospector outposts (Refinery and Armory):
    • Epic: Armistice, Prospector Mantle
    • Rare: Far from Refuge, Shield of Atlas



    Defeating a Dreadnought

    • Legendary: Adventure Ahead



    Defeating Grax

    • Legendary: Wardish Vogue

    Technically, this one appears to be awarded for reaching Act 6. I had a pre-Crimson Moon game that was already in Act 6, and that paint job was awarded.



    Defeating an Armored Outlaw

    Each planet has a list of four paint jobs that are randomly awarded when you defeat an armored outlaw on that planet. One is Legendary, two are Epic (one has the name of the planet in the paint job name), and one is Rare. It appears that, on average, twice as many of the Rare paint jobs are given compared with each of the other three types, so expect to get a Legendary paint job only about 1/5 of the time.

    Outlaw Shops on the Crimson Moon

    There are five tiers of Outlaw Shops on the Crimson Moon. You need to unlock the Tier 2 through Tier 5 shops with cogs. Each shop offers three paint jobs as soon as it's unlocked. There are also additional paint jobs that are unlocked as you play the four "faction stories." The Star Fox Reunion faction story is only available on Switch, and only with the Star Fox Team Pilot Pack DLC, and it's locked until you complete the original Star Fox campaign.

    Earned at the Coliseum

    When you win in the Coliseum, you get a trophy. When you sell that trophy at Fortune's Rest, you're awarded a paint job. Each trophy has three paint jobs -- one Legendary, one Epic, and one Rare -- that it randomly chooses from.

    Brawl Laserdrome Champion Gauntlet
    Legendary Valhalla Sunrise Undefeated Luxurious Laurel Gauntlet Glimmer
    Epic Gladiator Deluxe Battler's Best Warrior's Wardrobe Prizefighter
    Rare Laserdrome Glow Beautiful Brawler Coliseum Camouflage Pugilist
    Yes, it looks like the first two entries in the Rare category are switched. Maybe it's a bug, but that's how they work.



    Earned at the Racetracks

    When you win a race, you get a trophy. When you sell that trophy at Fortune's Rest, you're awarded a paint job. Each trophy has three paint jobs -- one Legendary, one Epic, and one Rare -- that it randomly chooses from.

    Note: my racing stinks. The information in this section was entirely obtained from Officer Vaelyn's work on the Starlink Wiki at Fandom:

    Earned in Atlas's Most Wanted

    With each big step you make in the Atlas's Most Wanted campaign, you get a trophy object. When you sell that trophy object at Fortune's Rest, you're awarded a paint job. Each trophy object has an associated paint job. Most are Rare, but the last one is Legendary.
    • Rare: Wax and Wane, Among the Willows, Corsair's Eclipse, Scourge
    • Legendary: Mutiny

    By the time you finish the campaign, you'll also pick up the Adventure Ahead (Legendary) paint job, but that's a side effect, not from a trophy object.



    Grappling

    When you successfully grapple certain kinds of foes in space, you get a medallion. When you sell that medallion at Fortune's Rest, you're awarded a paint job. Each medallion has an associated paint job.
    • Elite Drake: Vanquish (Rare)
    • Elite Outlaw: To the Metal (Rare) -- see note below
    • Outlaw Leader: Motion Blur (Epic)
    • Wanted Outlaw: The Fast One (Legendary)

    According to Officer Vaelyn on the Starlink Wiki at Fandom, the To the Metal paint job is tricky to get. Elite Outlaws no longer spawn in space in the normal course of the game. However, there's one point in the Atlas's Most Wanted campaign, while you're dealing with ocular laser beams, where Elite Outlaws do spawn in space. That's your one and only chance to snag the To The Metal paint job:

    Paint jobs require fixing. I don't like this system totally
