Harvesters are a type of building employed by the Banished at their outposts.[1][2] They function as the Banished alternative to the Warehouse, Supply Pad, and Supply Elevator structures used by the Covenant, United Nations Space Command, and Forerunners, respectively.


Harvesters are used to extract supplies from a given environment, used to sustain the presence of the Banished military forces in the field and allow for the construction and repair of necessary infrastructure. They extract raw feedstock from the environment in a manner similar to Power Extractors, and are but a small link in a larger logistics train that extends throughout the Milky Way galaxy out even to the extragalactic Installation 00.[1][2]

Atriox sets production quotas for Harvesters which are ever-increasing, resulting in some Harvesters being upgraded to a structure termed an Augmented Harvester, which can accelerate supply production. Outpost overseers who exceed the estimations of their supply output are fondly looked upon by the Banished, and may use this fact to offset their punishment even in the event their base is destroyed in combat.[1]

Supply acquisition.

Harvesters are extraction sites that delve into the Ark's interior to tap raw feedstock that is then converted into Supplies used by the Banished. To meet ever-increasing production quotas. the Augmented Harvester upgrade is needed, which accelerates Supply generation.

The Ark belongs to Atriox, all others in the Banished are entitled only to the scraps he deems fit for their fit for their hands. under his control. The Harvesters are but one link in a chain that ultimately extends from the Ark to the Banished forces carrying out other phases of his plan in the Orion Arm of the galaxy. Though important, ultimately every outpost is expendable, and talented overseers can parlay even seeming defeat into praise and promotion if they exceed Atriox’s estimates for harvested profit when they come under attack.
