Howdy folks buckle in we have a lot to talk about for this week. We have the introduction of Outpost 10, with a number of improvements we will talk about. We also have our VXP weekend to help rank up your new Fangtooth, and other ships in your dock. We will also be starting our target transition, and talking about the Uranium sources.
VXP & Uranium Weekend
From Friday, 9/22 @ 9am PDT to Monday, 9/25 @ 9am PDT we will be running our VXP Weekend.This is your first chance to rank up your Fangtooth! We have a great write up on VXP weekends you can find here (<--- Click URL)
Keep your eye out for new Uranium Raider (100) and Uranium Raider (60) targets which will have VXP rewards as well as Uranium Payouts. 200k Uranium for the 100 target, and 55k Uranium for the 60 target. These targets will be similar to what you will encounter in the upcoming raid cycle.
Uranium Raider (60) will spawn and payout the whole time. Uranium will only be paid out when the target is destroyed. VXP will be paid out based on damage dealt and received as usual.
Uranium Raider (100) will only spawn for the first 36 hours, from Fri, 9am PDT - Sat, 9pm PDT. It will pay out Uranium upon destruction, and VXP based on damage dealt and received.
The Scourge have a new technology that is slowing ships in the vicinity. This is more powerful in the higher difficulty targets (100), but note the Fangtooth has the ability to resist this. The 60 target does not have this effect, and the Tideseeker will be effective here.
Unidentified Raider Fleets, salvage and elite targets will spawn the entire time and pay out VXP like in past VXP weekends.

New Uranium Sources
With the addition of OP10 many of you are going to be looking for more Uranium to be able to upgrade your Outpost as well as many other structures. To help you with these we have a few additional source of Uranium that are being added to the game. As noted above you will be able to get Uranium from the VXP targets this weekend.
Keep an eye out on the world map after VXP weekend for the Uranium Raider Targets to be able to collect more Uranium.
In addition to this there a 3rd Daily Campaign added to the rotation you will see. It will be a three run campaign, with the first 2 runs being similar to Uranium Raider 60 Target, which you can be completed with Tideseekers. The third run is similar to the Uranium 100 Target and you will want the Fangtooth or Hunter for this target. Reward for completing this campaign will not be a treasure chest, but 310k Uranium.
