  • Water Balloons are available in the grenade slot for 1 Certification Point.
  • The hard-hitting Mega Soldier Soaker will drench your enemies with rapid-fire splash damage, and is available for unlock for 1000 Certs. Additional faction-specific variants are available in the Depot for 499 DBC.
These weapons are available for use during the summer event only.

Gifting

Have you ever wanted to send a shiny new weapon or cosmetic to that friend you painstakingly coaxed into fighting a perpetual war on Auraxis with you? So have we!

As of this update, you now have the ability to send a Gift to anyone on your friends list by selecting the "Gift" bundle found on most items and bundles in the Depot.

The recipient of your gift can find the item(s) in their notification screen, alongside an optional note.

This is a long-requested community feature, and we're happy to finally be able to bring it to you all.

Aerial Anomalies Return

For a limited time, the Aerial Anomalies event returns to Auraxis!

Once per continent, an Aerial Anomaly event will kick off, spawning "anomalies" periodically around the map, and removing the nanite cost on aircraft.

Rush to collect the "Tempest" provided by these Anomalies, and return to your faction's buoy to deposit it!

Bastion Fleet Carriers also act as drop-off locations for this event, so be sure to use them to change the tides of battle.

  • Removed lattice link from Zotz Agriculture Lab to Zotz Arboretum.

Misc. Changes, Fixes, and Additions

  • HUD indicators now allow ally/enemy toggles for certain categories, and various bugs have been cleaned up.
  • Flak Attack and Skyfall on Auraxis missions now progress by dealing damage, instead of earning vehicle damage experience.
  • Added Soft Point Ammunition to the GD-22S.
  • Added Underbarrel Grenade and Smoke Launcher to the PSA-01 Diamondback.
  • Added Underbarrel Shotgun, Grenade, and Smoke Launcher to the AR-101.
  • The AE variant of the Artemis VX26 now has the attachments it was missing from the base weapon.
  • ANT's Deliverer Module no longer conflicts with Rival Combat Chassis.
  • ANT no longer displays two entries of the NS-A Horn.
  • Sniper Rifle resist type no longer damages Hardlight Barriers.
  • Fixed an issue where the Friendly Fire audio could spam suddenly on Oshur.
  • The radar dishes on Exodus Fleet Carriers no long has missing textures.
  • Updated tooltip for Cortium Bombs.
  • Fixed LOD issues with the Reaver Dragonfly cosmetics.


Looking Forward

With the network performance issues that have been plaguing Connery past us, and the G15 errors few and far between, we can start talking about some of the fun summer updates we've got planned with a little more confidence. The gifting system going Live with this update is kind of a big deal in terms of a technological addition, and has been a requested feature for about as long as I can remember. Hopefully the folks who are looking to make use of it are a little happier with the addition. To look at what's coming down the pipe, the new water vehicle is just on the horizon, and Outfit Wars in a 1v1 capacity is getting pretty near as well. We'll talk about some of this in the next dev article, and share some insight into where we're headed. To the folks affected by the server troubles the past few months (and everyone else who had to hear about it,) thank you for bearing with us.

-Wrel, Lead Designer
