Increasing The Friendship Level

There are 4 methods described here to build better friendships with a superhero. You are free to use any method that you like. The XP you receive differs from method to method. Therefore, choose accordingly from hanging out, engaging in conversations, safe havens, and sparring in the yard.

Hanging Out

Hanging out refers to undertaking an activity with any superhero after completing a mission. There are certain activities that you can do with a superhero such as playing cards and fishing. You can choose whatever activity you want.

Moreover, to further strengthen your friendship with a superhero, you can give them a gift. The gift can be bought from the gift shop, or you could get lucky if you a gift at the Abbey,

The activity that you choose must be carefully selected depending on the hero you decide to hang out with. Every superhero has a different preference for hanging out and your friendship bond with them is strengthened or weakened based on your choice of activity.

A superhero would want to play cards with you, whereas another would want to go fishing and this is your task to take care of their priorities.

The gift that you select for a superhero also should be carefully selected based on the superhero that you are hanging out with. Here also, each superhero has their own preference, and to develop stronger friendships with them, you have to take care of their choice.


‘Haven’ is a specific place at the Abbey grounds where you can invite a friend and hang out with them. ‘Haven’ is not a typical hanging out spot because you can only take a friend there once and they can be met only once at the Haven. Havens are limited in number also.

The advantage of taking a friend at the Haven, as compared to other spots, is that Havens double the amount of friendship rewards you get from the activity.

Therefore, to make full use of a Haven, invite a friend to the activity they enjoy and bring them the gift that they appreciate the most. Since Havens will not be available every time for a superhero, carefully select the activity and the gift.

Indulging In Conversations

There are two ways that can earn friendships in Midnight Suns from conversations. First is to engage in dialogue with a superhero casually and the other is to complement them.

The most widely used way to gain friendships is to engage in a dialogue with a player. You will always have three options to choose from over which topic to converse about. The choice that you make will decide the amount of XP you get and how much your friendship strengthens.

Hence, you are to use whatever knowledge and intuition you have about the options, the player, and the situation. Careful selection will lead to a higher increase in the friendship level whereas, a poor selection will lead to the otherwise.

Engaging In Dialogue

There are innumerable ways to indulge in dialogue with other heroes.

Many a time, superheroes will send invitations to you to meet them one-on-one or to see them at club meetings. Heroes of similar interests hang out at club meetings after they have undertaken a day-long mission.

Also, sometimes superheroes will ask you for your help to do a task or seek your advice. Take these opportunities with both hands since they give you a push to your friendship level.

Apart from this, you will meet and converse with superheroes at the Abbey, hangouts, and on Superlink as well. Superlink is a social networking service that superheroes use to socialize. Make good use of the platform also.


The other way to gain friendship while conversing with a hero is when you compliment them. Opportunities to complement appear after you have completed a research project, a Hero op, or when you get to a new training level.

Complimenting is a quick way to earn some XP and improve your friendship. Here too, care must be exercised while complimenting a hero. The benefits of the activity vanish if you compliment one hero a lot in a short period.

Hence, it is important to complement different heroes and not stick to just one. Also, if more than one compliment is given to a superhero, make sure to do that with a gap.

Spar At The Yard

Sparring rewards with a minimal increase in XP, so they must not be used to jack up your rewards. Sparring should be done when only a few XP are required, and you need a quick way to get them. This is done when you require a handful of them to reach the next friendship level.

These are all the methods that can be used to increase the friendship level. However, it is up to the player which method he uses. The method should be adopted based on how much time is to be invested in increasing the friendship level and how much XP is to be obtained.

Benefits Of Friendship

Increasing the friendship level of your player is not just something to look over as increasing levels offer fruity bounties.

Apart from the wholesome teamwork feeling you get after building stronger friendships, you will unlock rewards as you level up and eventually get the ultimate midnight sun ability of that player. Every friendship level brings with it new outfits and color palettes.
