Apprentice Quests in Grounded is a way to obtain a lot of Raw Science quickly, provided to you by BURG.L via the ASL Terminal.

The Apprentice Quests from BURG.L were first introduced with the Grounded 1.3 update, so if you haven't played Obsidian's survival title in a while, you might want to catch up on everything new.

Spoiler Warning: The list of BURG.L Apprentice Quests in Grounded does give away enemy types and areas later in the game.

We are just going to cut to the chase right now. There are 99 Apprentice Quests in Grounded. These are considered mainline quests from BURG.L via the Advanced System Library (ASL). Once you complete the first quest, you'll unlock the second, continuing up to the final most challenging quests.

Players must complete 20 of these Apprentice Quests to unlock Daily Quests in Grounded. Furthermore, they are hidden until you discover them, and provide Grounded players with heaps of Raw Science upon completion. These quests function as a way of pushing players in the right direction and should definitely not be avoided.
