October VXP weekend begins! Bring your Pegasus fleets to earn great VXP payouts and Defender VXP token drops. VXP Targets will be the first look at the new target mechanics for the upcoming Assault Season.



NESSUS CIC AURA BUFF

With the natural escalation of NPC armor values in upcoming targets, it became apparent that the Nessus’ Corrosive Chiton aura needed to be increased to keep up and provide value. The aura now meaningfully contributes to killing enemy ships, and is especially helpful against enemies that charge in for close range combat.



  • [Ships] Strike Frigates have VXP rank. This has been removed, so no Interceptors should have VXP ranks moving forward.

  • [Ships] Aura Buff icons are visible in fog. These are now hidden.

  • [Other] General bug fixes and minor visual improvements
