    Nuclear Winter Event to PTS

    A new update is now live on PTS and contains the following:

    PTS Character copy is now open, from 12/19 - 1/6 (I will be unable to perform copies during the holidays).

    Altras and Xellia will be organizing some PTS play sessions to get some valuable player feedback. The dev team will be providing them with a special challenger reward to players who participate!!

    NEW EVENT

    Winter is finally here, and its Nuclear! Nuclear Winter is a brand new in game event that will usher in the new year, with enemies that burn with Radiation! Fight off Hellbugs, Raiders, Mutants and Plaguers, who are all out to poison you with toxic radiation attacks.

    Finish the daily and weekly contracts to get your weekly reward. The reward will contain a guaranteed Legendary U-238 weapon (Synergy not active yet on PTS) and an epic mod with the chance to be legendary (chance at a jackpot weapon).

    A new pursuit has been added called "Imposed Half-Life". Complete this pursuit during the Nuclear Winter event to receive a special reward: 35 inventory slots and the title "Radioactive". Inventory slots will increase beyond the current cap!

    Score and health scaling has been adjusted heavily for this event to make sure high scores are easily obtainable. Please login on PTS and give this event a try for feedback! We cannot make this event perfect without your feedback.

    NEW SYNERGY

    Isotropic Decay
    [1] +17% Accuracy and -17% Recoil
    [2] -17% Reload

    Chance at one of 8 all new jackpots (one special charge blade). These Jackpot weapons will have BRAND NEW SKIN TEXTURES. These skins have never before been seen:






    ALL U-238 manufactured weapons (dropping from both the event and lock boxes) will have an additional effect: +10% additional armor penetration and nano-effect chance! This is in addition to the synergy and bonuses.

    WEAPON CHANGES
    • VBI SMG and variants: Crit mult increased to 2 (from 1.5)

    Question: how does the nano proc chance boost work? Considering a weapon with 4% nano proc chance per shot, which of the situations apply?
    • The Nano proc chance is 4.4% (4 + 0.10 * 4)
    • The Nano Proc chance is 14% (4 + 10)

    All im saying is I hope Trion goes head first into the whole "all radioactive things in vidya games is neon green" when it comes to the skins of the guns.
    inb4 the charge blade is a big yellow warning radioactive sign on a pole

    With a syn name like "Isotropic Decay" I get the feeling like a firerate boost will be apart of it
