Patch 9.00 (May 9, 2019)

Missions + System
  • Introducing: Wargames!
    • Revisit your Storm Shield bases and test your defenses against some destructive and challenging simulations. Simulations will exist in all biomes and we’ll be adding more as the season progresses. The first four are:
      • Torn Apart – A tornado is wreaking havoc on your fort! This simulation causes destruction to your structures, flinging players and enemies into the air.
      • Hot Spots – Volcanic ruptures plague this simulation as lava pools sprout from the ground, damaging structures, and converting enemies into the Fire element.
      • Denied – During the course of this simulation, more and more anomaly rifts appear around the defense point. Standing too close to these hazards will sap your energy and your health!
      • In games with more than one player, increasing difficulty requires a majority vote.
      • Safety Zone – With the main Storm Shield down, you will have to rely on portable shield generators. Stay inside one of these protective bubbles or feel the effects of the Storm. Enemies will prioritize destroying the shield generators first so keep them protected!
    • Each simulation requires the players to defend their base for seven minutes. A random amplifier is then selected to defend for another seven minutes.
      • Collect “Time Cheats” that appear around the environment to reduce the wave timer.
    • Wargames ramps up the challenge by requiring another player to revive you when your health is depleted. If everyone goes down you will fail the Wargame, so if you are playing solo you will only have one life to complete the simulation.
    • If the simulations aren’t challenging enough, apply one of nine new challenge modifiers for some bonus rewards. These challenges include:
      • Rolling Fog – A heavy fog obstructs your sights and enemies won’t appear on your mini-map.
      • Close Quarters – Enemy spawn locations appear much closer to your base.
      • Husk Swarm – Only Husks appear in this challenge, but they are at a much higher power level.
      • No Building Zone – No building, no repairs, and no pickaxe.
      • Heavy Explosives – Huskies explode when eliminated. Eliminate them before they get too close!
      • Trapped Out – All of your traps are disabled and none can be placed in this challenge.
      • Full Time – Time Cheats don’t appear in this simulation challenge.
      • Surprise – The Wargames simulation is randomized and will swap to a different one in the second wave.
      • Head Games – Damaged enemies must be finished off with a headshot!
    • The Wargames difficulty and rewards are based on the account level of the lowest player in a party and is averaged with public players that assist in your mission. This is to ensure that there is always a challenge in any Storm Shield location.
    • Wargames steps up the challenge as more players join the mission, by increasing the enemy count and enemy power level.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Husk Swarm is currently the only Wargames Modifier to be removed, Epic games removed it due to the oversaturation of "AFK" Wargames grinding which basicly meant that player could just place loads of traps and win the game without even moving.
  • Durning season 9 players could earn tickets for completing wargames, however because of the "AFK" Wargames grinding problem, the tickets were removed and now wargames only give out Gold and Resources
  • After patch 10.00 Wargames have seemingly stopped being supported, with no new modifiers being added.
