  • Defend Forts - Survive, but watch out for modifiers that make things more challenging.

Challenge the Horde (Road Trip)[edit | edit source]

On the Patch 5.0 version of Challenge the Horde, The Horde map comes in the desert which focuses on a tighter experience with less running from base to base between waves, and more time to focus on building and item-crafting.

Challenge the Horde can be unlocked based upon the Storm Shield Defense progression or Horde Quest progression in the Campaign. This means that players who are currently playing in Twine Peaks can expect the entire Challenge the Horde map to be unlocked. However, individual challenges within a Horde mission must still be unlocked in order. It also introduces new Storm behavior that beat back waves of enemies as the storm closes in (resets every wave) and while in the Storm, players take damage.  Mechanics were added or adjusted as follows:

  • Reduced the total number of Challenge the Horde missions available on the map from 16 to 9.
  • Set the total number of challenges to 5 for every Horde mission. Previously, the number of challenges varied from as low as 3, to as high as 8.
  • Reduced the number of waves per Horde challenge from 10 to 8.
  • Reduced the maximum time of a wave from 6 minutes to 4 minutes.
  • Enemy loot drops and item caches have been disabled for Challenge the Horde.
  • Active Mutant Storm Mission Alerts have been turned on.
  • Elemental Mission Alerts are available.

Resourcing[edit | edit source]

  • Challenge the Horde missions now grant a starter, first tier, uncommon Assault Rifle and Sword to help players hit the ground running in early Horde missions.
  • The initial ammunition grant has been increased to match the increased difficulty of the first Horde mission.
  • Building materials, ammunition, and crafting materials granted to players per skill tree upgrade have been reduced throughout the Horde Skill Tree.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Mission Alerts in Challenge the Horde are available with a maximum limit of 10 per day.

  • Award Road Trip Tickets used to purchase Road Trip Event Llamas.
  • Award Horde Skill Points used to purchase nodes in the Horde Skill Tree.
  • Perk Recombobulator materials are now distributed in Challenge the Horde including RE-PERK! or PERK-UP! in larger quantities than found in Campaign missions.
