Save the World | Homebase Status Report 11.16.2021
Commanders are now able to earn Battle Pass experience in Save the World!
Here’s how it works: Completing missions in Save the World will reward you with accolades that will grant you varying amounts of XP based on the badges earned during the mission. A majority of XP will come from badges earned from successfully completing a mission, but there are many ways to earn more: Looting materials, crafting weapons, defeating Husks, exploring the map; all of these are ways to earn more XP in your missions. Don’t forget to complete those bonus mission objectives!
This feature goes live on November 16 2021 at 1 PM ET.
Hexslyvania may be making its ghostly exit soon, but the chills are just getting started with the return of the Winterfest Venture Season on November 20 at 7 PM ET!
Save the World’s Winterfest Venture Season makes its jolly return
The return of Winterfest also brings the return of the Super Heroic Modifier where each class will gain super heroic benefits that will further strengthen their style of play.
Soldiers, This is the perfect modifier to enhance those headshots! The damage of headshots is doubled and you’ll benefit from reduced cooldowns when eliminating Husks with ranged weapons. Accuracy is key!
Constructors, The one downside of building is that it uses up your hard earned materials. Well that problem is reduced with this modifier! Building will cost fewer materials; on top of that, this modifier gives Kinetic Overload lower cooldown and greater impact!
Ninjas, A healthy blend of Melee and Ability weaving will be key with this modifier. Focus your efforts on ability eliminations to gain increased melee damage and attack speed. Use that to your advantage as melee eliminations also reduce your ability cooldowns. Synergize your playstyle for maximum efficiency. You’ll also gain double the Shadowstance stats so get in their faces and show em’ who's boss.
Outlanders, It’s time for some punchin’ (looking at you, Jess) as Anti-Material charge will have no cost during this Ventures Season. For all you T.E.D.D.Y slingers out there, you’ll benefit from a free Fragment every 50 seconds along with increased ability damage.
Reports from the field show that the winter winds have increased the Husk resistance to trap and weapon damage, so get ready to build a squad that can pack quite a punch!
Unwrap the Holiday Llama!
This Llama looks cold on the outside, but it is filled with festive heroes and weapons that will warm up Homebase. The Holiday Llama returns on November 20 at 7 PM ET.
Frostnite Challenges return, Subzero Zenith Freezes up the Event Store, and Crackshot needs your help in the Holly Jolly Questline on November 20 (7 PM ET)
Beginning on November 20 at 7 PM ET, venture out and keep the Burner filled with scavenged BluGlo. If it runs out, things get real cold real quick. As the burner health decreases the Storm Shield shrinks, so fill ‘er up.
Survive the bitter cold in Frostnite
The Krampus Smashers who dwell in these cold regions are dangerous but worth the fight, dropping some much needed BluGlo. Check your quest log for Frostnite rewards, such as the loading screen / music pack and be on the lookout for weekly challenges in the coming weeks.
Survive as long as you can with only your scavenged loot, schematics, and wits to protect you.
