Greetings, Captains. The 9.02 update is deploying Tuesday, January 8th at ~4:00 PM PDT. This update contains support for the January Raid and its campaigns.


Begins: Wednesday, January 9th @ 3:00PM PST
Ends: Sunday, January 13th @ 3:00PM PST

The January Raid, VENGEFUL FIRE, features our new siege targets that are complete with mountain terrain and heavy turrets. These targets are a ton of fun to navigate and a brand new way to play Battle Pirates.

Battle hard and earn the SHRIKE, a submarine that only fires when stationary and surfaced but packs a heavy punch. Full briefing and reward store will be released on Tuesday, January 8th.


Begins: Thursday, January 10th @ 3:00PM PST
Ends: Sunday, January 13th @ 3:00PM PST

Not quite ready for the Raid? Break out your Icebreakers and tackle this campaign to claim the Cannoneer - along with some fantastic equipment and build tokens.

  • [Prize Pack 1] Cannoneer Blueprint; 1d Cannoneer Build Tokens x9; Large Cannoneer VXP Tokens x2

  • [Prize Pack 2] Millennium Gun Blueprint; 1d Cannoneer Build Tokens x10; Large Cannoneer VXP Tokens x2

  • [Prize Pack 3] High Velocity Rounds Blueprint; 1d Cannoneer Build Tokens x10; Large Cannoneer VXP Tokens x2

  • [Mastery x3] 20d Cannoneer Build Token x1


Begins: Friday, January 11th @ 9:00AM PST
Ends: Sunday, January 13th @ 3:00PM PST

For those elite players who claimed the Shrike early and want to take it for a spin, grab a friend and take on this bonus Co-Op Campaign that requires both a fleet of Eradicators and a fleet of Shrikes.

This campaign is a mastery run, with only one encounter and three repeats. The first time one of these powerful targets is defeated, any player in the target receives a special badge acknowledging you defeated it during its initial introduction.

Additionally, the player who owns the campaign will earn one of each limited item featured in the target: the Annihilator Cannon and the Stalker Launcher.

This is a tough one - so good luck!

  • [Fleets] Canceling an ongoing slow refit was visually returning a ship to an already full fleet
