Operation ISAC is now a separate weekly activity that will reset on Thursdays and reward exclusive vanity items upon completion. Keep your eyes peeled for your first assignment this Thursday!

As a reminder, Clear Sky is only available on Hard Mode this week. Get out there and test out your strategies to prepare yourself for when Challenge Mode becomes available next week.


SMG and Marksman Rifle combination

Many discussions have brought the power of using an SMG combined with a Marksman Rifle. With the SMG offering powerful close range combat and the Marksman Rifle dealing with targets far away, this combination is very versatile. The introduction of the new gear sets takes steps towards offering alternative weapons and a full weapon balance will happen at a later date.

Phoenix Credits

Phoenix credits is an ongoing discussion in the community. Many players describe that they have nothing to purchase with them and are constantly at max capacity. We are aware of this and are considering new ways to spend Phoenix Credits for future updates.
