If you’re a completionist, then the Secret Request listing from the Stellar Blade Bulletin Board might have you pulling your hair out.

The Bulletin Board is your best friend if you want to help out the citizens of Xion by doing side quests to earn a bit of Gold and some other rewards. Of course, you're helpless if one of the requests is automatically refused. That's what happens with the Secret Request in Stellar Blade.

The short answer is, no, you cannot accept the Secret Request listing from Stellar Blade's Bulletin Board. It is enticing with its 5,000 Gold prize, but alas, it is scripted and there's nothing you can do. And no one knows why other than to potentially show EVE's lawful side.

More Stellar Blade requests appear on the Bulletin Board as you progress through the game, or complete other requests listed first. The latter is how you'll come across the Secret Request listing in Stellar Blade:

  1. Access the Bulletin Board
  2. Accept the Missing Wife request
  3. Complete the Missing Wife request
  4. Return to the Bulletin Board
  5. Accept Secret Request
  6. Be denied and deal with it

No matter how many times you smash the X button while selecting the request, nothing will happen. It's just one of those small moments used to enhance the main character and the world she finds herself in.

Why does EVE refuse Secret Request in Stellar Blade?

EVE goes with her gut-feeling for this one. She has a discussion with herself regarding the overclocking of the requester's brain that is mentioned in the listing. EVE calls it intense, and boom, Secret Request in Stellar Blade is outright refused.

After [In Progress] goes away during EVE's comments, a big [Refused] tag sits next to the Secret Request listing. Whoever made the request doesn't want the Orcal to know and asks EVE to not get caught. Since EVE is of the law, she doesn't feel right accepting it.
