So it appears the only new unit content coming out in this month's event is the Storm Chaser merc.  I was really hoping for a new Corpus infantry unit for bunkers.  Corpus is at a big disadvantage right now in that respect.

    They have been introducing stormchaser the last few weeks, and now were getting him. But i believe there will be added another unit too. Because stormchaser is going to be a Mercenary Unit that you build in the Merc Camp. I bet they are going to add a standard unit too.

    oh **** your right, maybe we only get stormchaser... well, that would mean a month off on upgrades on the newest unit, so we can keep upgrading other stuff.

      I hope a new unit comes out this Month.  But if you look at the Calendar for this Month there is no Token Base for a new unit.  All the Token Bases are for past units.  Like the Absolver, TwinBlade and Gorgon.  Hopefully we do get the unit shown being attacked by the HellHounds.  It looks like an upgraded Hercules.

    Maybe Kixeye will add a ton of levels to the Stormchaser lol.

    I hope they put all the tech in event store for some of the uniques chopper, shepherd, hive etc. as there's no new unit in normal event store. Stormchaser is for prestige xp and not all players grinds the challange V's.

    this is the final cycle of event no new factions units that was supposed to be 3 heros be unlocked instead of single. but now heros unit have thier own unit so i think all  final cycles will give another unique or unit that is not survivor/corpus/sentinel..  but it requires you collect parts from month events so if not do all 4 events before new cycle you will not recive the new unit unless it come 1 month later on prestige store like shadow sarkis did...

    The general lookof the mech doesn't seem to match any of the Factions at all.
    Corpus is out of the question for it being too brightly coloured.
    It looks too clean to be a Survivors unit.
    And while you could think Sentinels its colour palette is red instead of the more orange Sentinel colour.

    Mercs are not aligned to any faction which is why when you deploy them you do not loose your faction bonus/buff.

    Wait a minute,  ALL non faction units "are not aligned to any faction" and deploying them means you DO lose your faction buff.  What are you talking about"?

    Future non faction units, like Sarkis,Storm chaser, Bludgeon, Shredder are not going to disable the faction trait because they are neutral units

    They are the upcoming Mercs alongside Stormchaser. I believe all 3 of them are scheduled to release this Event.

    So only neutral units from the release of Sarkis forward won't lose faction buff, but no past units?  If you are making this for neutral units why not all?

    Because the team just threw everything pre faction era behind

    Do Legendary PVP units count as neutral?  They were after pre-faction era.  Weren't LHovers introduced after New Sarkis?

    "Electric skates! The new Mercenary unit, The Stormchaser, is finally here. This single-use unit will shock and damage enemies it comes in contact with, and a whole platoon of them will certainly stun the enemy into submission.

    The Stormchaser can be earned after collecting all 8 contracts in Operation: Stormchaser!"

    Interesting that its phrased this way as you can only have 1 of him built and used at any given time.

    Also I have been extensively using Stormchaser since obtaining him and he does in fact disable faction traits while deployed alongside my corpus platoon.
