Meet Your Maker offers multiple progression systems, with the Prestige system only applying to your outposts. It doesn’t apply to your character in any way. Before you can even Prestige a base, however, there are some things you’ll need to do. This guide has all the information you need.
Meet Your Maker Prestige System Explained
To Prestige in Meet Your Maker, you must first build and activate an outpost. To activate an outpost, you need to claim a Burial Site at the Command Center.
From the Command Center, cycle to the Build option. From there, you’re able to purchase Burial Sites of varying starting capacities with Synthite.
After building your outpost, open the game menu. There will be four options:
To gain outpost progression, select either the Active or Overdrive options, then exit the outpost by holding down the button you used to open the menu. Now, wait until other players come across your outpost.
Each level requires a certain number of points. Prestige points are gained for each player killed and each accolade awarded.
To Prestige, head back to your outpost via the Command Center build menu. Open up the menu, then cycle to the Prestige tab. If you have enough points, you can upgrade your outpost with Synthite, with each level progressively requiring more Synythite.
Crucially, Prestige points stack even if you let your general materials deplete. For example, you might end up creating a deadly outpost that amasses 800 points in one day. That’s enough points to upgrade multiple times in a row. From the Prestige menu, you might see a symbol like +2 or +4. This denotes the number of times you can upgrade with your current points.

The Benefits of Prestiging
What exactly is the purpose to Prestiging? Each level grants player experience points and increases the outpost’s build capacity. This means that even the smallest Burial Sites can easily reach capacities of up to 2,000 or more. This will become even more useful for the already larger Burial Sites to create incredibly expansive outposts.
As an added bonus, you’ll want to Prestige before your outpost depletes, which occurs 12 hours after activation. Outpost depletion means that there are no more GenMats that can be gained. Prestiging before depletion grants a 15% bonus on top of the current GenMat pool.
