DUST 514: New in-game events for March offer skill point, ISK and dropsuit rewards

  • Posted March 24th, 2014 at 11:39 EDT by PSU Staff

It's that time of the month again Mercs; time for some new events!

In celebration of the
new content in Uprising 1.8--deploying on March 25th--CCP is having two new events that run from downtime on March 26th to downtime on April 9th.

So what are these events?

Sidearm Showdown
Objective: During the event period, players must achieve kills using any sidearm (including Nova Knives) while using any type of dropsuit.

Rewards: For each kill with a sidearm player characters will receive 1000 skill points, capped at 750,000.

Additional Info:

All rewards are on a per character basis

Maximum skill point reward (infantry kills only) capped at 750,000 skill points per character

This event objective can be played in conjunction with The Commando Contingency, however, the maximum 750,000 skill point cap per character is the combined cap for both events

Due to technical limitations, melee attacks made while holding a sidearm (not Nova Knives) will not count as a kill with a side arm

 


Commando Contingency 
Objective 1: During the event period, players must achieve kills while using any type of commando dropsuits.

Rewards: For each kill while using a commando dropsuit a player character will receive 1000 skill points and a prototype AUR dropsuit of the type used.

Additional Info:

All rewards are on a per character basis

Maximum skill point reward (infantry kills only) capped at 750,000 skill points per character

Maximum number of AUR prototype Commando dropsuits reward per character is 400 (for all types)

Any weapon (including sidearms) is eligible

This event objective can be played in conjunction with Sidearm Showdown, however, the maximum 750,000 skill point cap per character is the combined cap for both events

Kills made while inside a vehicle will not count for this event


Objective 2: During the event period players will receive ISK rewards for killing Commando dropsuits.

Rewards: Any player character killing a Commando dropsuit during this event will receive an ISK bounty based on the type of commando dropsuit. Bounty is as follows:

Standard – 10000 ISK
Advanced – 25000 ISK
Prototype – 50000 ISK

Additional Info: 

All rewards are on a per character basis

ISK bounty is capped at 10 million

This event objective can be played in conjunction with Sidearm Showdown

So mercs, are you ready to get in your fancy commando fits, run around with your sidearm or rack in the commando kills--or maybe all the above!
