So what is Headquarters? Hiding headquarters gives every clan a fair amount of effort to earn a protected base in the Outlands. Based on their performance in the previous or current season, guilds will have the ability to designate an Outlands Hideout to their “Headquarters”, making it invulnerable. However, this state of invulnerability is not free: it must be maintained by capturing Hideout Power Cores from the open world and returning them to safety, while rival groups battle to take them in transit.
