The Shadow Ops Campaign Operation: Hidden in Darkness is here! Unlock the Darkstorm by earning 8 Standard Darkstorm Parts, obtained by beating each weekly Shadow Ops Phase. The Darkstorm is the first Unique Ground Unit in the Corpus Faction. It wields a passive Cloud of Darkness that massively reduces the Range of affected units.
The Shroud of Darkness Campaign will run for a total of 3 months, with a break during each monthly Event. Each month will contain 3-4 Phases which last for 72 hours once you activate the Phase. You must complete Tier 3 in 8 of the 10 Phases to unlock the Darkstorm. During this time, specific targets must be destroyed to score points and earn prizes.
Campaign Start: 10:00AM PST Friday, February 2nd
Phase 2 Start: 10:00AM PST Friday, February 9th
Phase 3 Start: 10:00AM PST Friday, February 16th
Phase 3 End 11:59:59PM PST Thursday, February 21st
You have 72 hours to complete a campaign from when you first start your timer. However, if you start your timer with less than 72 hours to go in the Phase, you will not get the full allotted time. Start your Ops early!

The Darkstorm is the epitome of Corpus: powerful, but extremely tactical. It perfectly compliments the Blackout, which can attack low-power buildings while the Darkstorm suppresses Bunkers and Units.

The Darkstorm has a swirling zone of darkness around it that radically reduces the range of all enemy units within it
