This release includes new Forsaken Mission prizes, info on the upcoming VXP weekend, and a new time-limited campaign: Implements of War. We will also be re-running the Plunder TLC, the Hyperion Rising TLC re-run, and re-introducing Call to Arms 2 TLC (with the Icebreaker replacing the Monolith as the top prize). Also, keep an eye out for new Daily Deals in the Merchant Store.
Let’s take a look!
June Forsaken Mission
As noted here, we will continue our FM target transition by introducing a new set of FM targets (40 - 113) alongside the normal 40 - 87 spawns.
Some notes on the FM target transition:
The level 80 is now level 82.
The level 40 & 47 targets have new World Map icons to match the current visual for FM targets, but the internal makeup of the target is exactly the same as their predecessors.
Reminder: Due to the event, this week's FM will begin today at 1:05pm PDT.
We are also adding the following items to the Prize Pools:
NOTE: The images for the new Explosive Plate armors incorrectly show stats for retrofit rank 16. This is a result of pulling these images from our Developer’s environment, where data on this environment can incorrectly show this non-existent rank. These images were pulled from this source at the time of print and do not correctly show the R0 stats. My apologies for this incongruence.

Prize Pack 4

Explosive Plate 2: from 9 hours 36 minutes to 6 hours 30 min
Explosive Plate 3: from 28 hours 48 min to 7 hours 26 min
June VXP weekend
From Friday, 6/23 9am PDT to Monday, 6/26 9am PDT, targets will spawn with VXP reward.
Unidentified Raiders Fleet 55 (reaver armada style target) will spawn the entire time. Salvage and Elite targets will have 2x VXP payout during the duration.
Unidentified Raiders Fleets 100 (July Elite target) and Unidentified Raiders Fleet 99 (type 91; Reaver Armada target) will only spawn from Fri, 9am - Sat, 9pm.
We will be introducing a new level 100 VXP target, specially designed for your Assault fleets. This target is similar to the high-level targets found in the upcoming July event, so be sure to bring your Phoenix!
