RAID THREAD: CRITICAL

Up the stakes and challenge yourself by trying your hand at Threat: Critical. A change in enemy level and modified boss patterns are just two of the ways you will be able to increase the difficulty in Regular Mode.

Hearts: Player has 4 hearts that replenish over time allowing the player to respawn or revive teammates. Modified Boss Patterns: More enemies in waves, shorter ability cooldowns. Exclusive Loot: 4 unique weapons and 5 titles are being added to the loot.

Weekly Game Modifiers – Threat: Critical

Each week, two major modifiers and one minor will be applied from a game pool to Hardcore Mode. Below is the current list of major and minor modifiers that can be applied. These weekly modifiers will appear in the raid’s Threat: Critical summary section of the objectives board.

Major:

  • When a player reloads their weapon, ammo left in the current magazine is lost.
  • The cooldown of each heart is longer, and you have 3 max hearts instead of 4.
  • No ammo drops for your current equipped weapon.
  • When injured, a player progressively loses health and can’t regenerate automatically.
  • All players can only equip one main weapon.
  • Life chunks are lost when empty, until a player heals.

Minor:

  • A player can wound a teammate with their own bullets.
  • Time of day is fixed at midnight for the entire week.
  • Technique gauge recharges slower from all sources.

RAID THREAT: LOW

If you’re looking for a more casual experience, Threat: Low Mode is a more relaxed take on the traditional raid.

A change in enemy level and modified boss patterns are just two of the ways you will be able to decrease the difficulty.

Gear Level Requirement: 150 will remain the minimum gear score. Enemy Level: Lowered from 260 in Normal to 250 in Low. Rules: Enemies visible on the map, cooldown to respawn is shorter. Modified Boss Patterns: Less enemies in waves, longer ability cooldowns for bosses, no second phase in boss fights. Loot: Consists of regular world loot without unique chests.
