Attention Commanders,


The prophecy of the Machine God is spreading as the Onyx threat is ravaging the Sector. Could the prophecy be coming to fruition? We will need some backup if that is the case.




Sharpshooter



The Sharpshooter is a long-range infantry unit that can be customized with either Stealth or additional range. The high-caliber sniper rifle shreds infantry units!


  • Faction: Survivors

  • Type: Generation III

  • Class: Standard

  • Damage Type: Burst

  • Functionality:

    • Comes with a Specialization Component Slot with two built-in Components. Choose between:

      • Sniper Camo: Gives the Sharpshooter Stealth until it fires

      • Spotter: Spawns a Spotter unit alongside the Sharpshooter that grants it additional Range.

        • If the Spotter dies, the Sharpshooter loses the Range buff

        • A Spotter will add additional Range to every Sharpshooter nearby

    • Level 10 Talent: Busted

      • Applies Busted Status to buildings

    • Level 20 Talent: Play Dead

      • The Sharpshooter has a chance to revive to battle 15 seconds after dying

      • Reviving is limited to one per battle per Sharpshooter

      • After reviving in a battle, the Sharpshooter will be dead and require full repairs

      • If the Sharpshooter is the last living unit and he dies, the battle will end before he revives

  • Targets: Ground

  • Platoon Count: 12


Win the Sharpshooter from the Sentinel Track or purchase it from the Event Store.


Spotter

The Spotter spawns in combat with the Sharpshooter if you have the Spotter Component equipped. Not only does he grant the Sharpshooter additional range, but also acts as a great meatshield when things get hairy in combat.


  • Faction: Survivors

  • Type: Generation III

  • Class: Drone

    • Untargetable by buildings

  • Damage Type: None (deals 0 damage)

  • Functionality:

    • Follows the Sharpshooter around and grants him additional Range

    • Shares the same Durability, Movement Speed, and Turning Speed as the Sharpshooter



Galen (Single-Use Hero)


Introducing a brand new Single-Use Caretaker Hero: Galen! Equipped with powerful protective barriers for Ground, Air, and High-Altitude, Galen designs the battlefield to his whim.


  • Faction: Sentinel

  • Type: Generation II Vehicle

  • Class: Single-Use Caretaker Hero

  • Functionality:

    • Protects Ground, Air, and High-Altitude Units within its Range

    • Galen is 3x more durable than the standard Caretaker

    • Receives the Crusade Talent at Level 1

      • Crusade: Greatly reduces damage for a short time after Galen first takes damage

    • Units within half the range of Galen’s Aura receive additional reduced damage by 10%



Win Single-Use Galen from the Main Track in Operation: Source Code.

    Sharpshooter

    375,000


    Gen 3 Unit: Corpus


    NEW CONTENT

    Kevlar Seat Belt


    • Unit: Siege Squadron

    • Slot: Decoy Squadron or Improvised Armo

    • Functionality:

      • Grants up to 30% resistance to Ground attacks

    Here are 2 minor spelling mistakes marked with red letters. The first mistake is that the Sharpshooter is marked in the event store content list as a Corpus unit when it should be a Survivors unit. The second mistake is that the final letter r is missed in Armor which caused it to be spelled "Armo".

    Other than that, I'm a bit excited about the event and the power of the Sharpshooters. On the other hand, it would be great to know how much health the Spotter has. In addition to that, it would be amazing to know the exact range for Sharpshooter with and without support of a Spotter to help us determined the effectiveness of the unit.

    It's good to see the Marksman again. One of my favorite SF units ever!

    -I'm wondering about the Spotter, the post says that he acts as a meat-shield, which implies that he's in front of the unit, but it also says that he follows the Sharpshooter around, which implies that he moves behind the unit. Which one is it?

    -Does the Kevlar Seat Belt affect the Ravagers or just the plane itself?

    -Galen looks very promising with many good features, but could you be a little more specific with how much his Crusade talent reduces damage and how much time it lasts?

    @CM_Burny can we please have some more details about the sharpshooter and the spotter , whats his range , what is the additional range incuding the spotter , does the spotter dont give isseus when you wanna putt the sharpshooter in your bunkers does is need extra space capacity ?

    Reason why i ask the max range what we have now on our units is about 550 max 575 including tech range .
    So i presume a sharpshooter should beat that range ???

    You could use them just to apply the busted status to bunkers before attacking with something else like Sunder or Blackout's drones.

    Well, I do not know what the Sharpshooter looks like, it looks like an interesting unit, with the option to stay in stealth mode or to increase the range, but evaluating the first two generation 3 units, the Corpus Sphinx and the Sentinels Evoy, are extremely effective and useful as I see it, a sniper in the midst of them does not look like great things.
    I sincerely expected something more from the survivors at this event. But let's wait and see what Sharpshooter will be like.

    Looks like a great event with excellent prizes. I really have only one complaint; I wish we did not have to buy the trophies we earn. If we complete all levels I think we should just be given the trophy. Never made any sense to me, and I never wasted my earnings to buy a trophy. I like how we get the trophy we earn automatically in the Warpath event.

    Hi Burny, thanks for the briefing.
    Sharpshooter and Spotter looks great, looking forward to using them. Not really sure about CT hero (Still hate the name CareTaker. So you lost me from the get go with this unit. Guess its to late now but there are so many other good/better names for this unit. Happy to list them at another time lol) Can only give this new hero a chance and see what is made of. Talking about bad Heros can something be done with Burnside, he's a complete let down. 
    Can you also please define the functionally of the 'Kevlar Seat Belt' a little better. I take it the -30% from ground units is for the Ravagers? It's not clear!
