Detailed walkthrough

The alien invaders have set up advanced devices to collect data on the inhabitants of Appalachia. A mysterious ally named Homer has remotely disabled the force fields surrounding these P.R.O.B.E.s and requests that you destroy them. This operation won't be so simple, as the UFO above will beam down aliens soldiers to defend their technology.

Repel wave after wave of aliens and defeat their leaders. When the P.R.O.B.E.s are destroyed, the Galactic General himself will teleport down with the full force of the cosmos. Defeat him to send the invaders into retreat.


  • Defeating each alien boss will grant a small amount of XP as a quest reward.
  • The full rewards are not yet implemented into the game.

  1. Inside The Vault - Dive Into Night of the Moth PTS Playtesting, Revised Community Calendar: "As we draw nearer to the Night of the Moth Update, we’ve determined that some of the content that we originally announced with our 2021 Roadmap still needs more development and internal testing time before we’re ready to bring it to the live game. As a result, we’re pushing C.A.M.P. Pets, the “Invaders from Beyond” event, and 4-Star Legendary Items into 2022. While we’re sure this news will come as a disappointment to some of you, we appreciate your patience, and believe this additional time will result in higher-quality and more polished features."
  2. 2021 Bethesda AMA Mark Tucker: "We’ve been talking (internally) about doing something fun with the Zetans since before we launched the game, so we are excited to finally have the chance to do something with them. We are working on a new feature we call Public Challenges that will be similar to Seasonal Events, but will be global to the World and encourage players to work together to succeed. We will showcase the Zetans in our first one and plan to add more in the future."
