New Unlockable Base Biomes added to next week’s Spec Ops!
Additional Metal and Thorium prize claims added to event stores
- Claimable Metal Prize cost decreased by 50%!
- Claimable Thorium Prize cost decreased by 50%!
- 2x the amount of Thorium in each event store claim!
- 3x the amount of Metal in each event store claim!
- Metal and Thorium payouts reduced in missions to offset the changes.
With the exception of the new equipment and Biomes being added after the event, these changes will be live immediately following the downtime.
Good luck out there.
