Mega Hive

The Mega Hive is a single-player chain of eight missions that tests your team’s might. Each week you’ll have a shot at completing the Mega Hive mission chain. When you defeat all eight missions, the Mega Hive mission chain is removed from the War Table until the next weekly refresh, when you can run it again with new modifiers.

This week’s modifiers include:

  • Pressure: No automatic recovery of Willpower when critically injured.
  • Maelstrom: All heroics charge at a significantly increased rate. Entering critical health drains all Heroic energy.
  • Oasis: Regen Packs have increased Willpower benefit.
  • Goliath:  Significantly increased presence of Exos.

Weekly Rewards: As you progress through the Mega Hive, rewards start as basic resources a small chance of cosmetic drops. The more missions you survive, the resource drops increase, as does your chance at gear and minor artifacts. As you near the final mission, you’ll see artifacts more often, and increased chances of patterns/nameplates. When you complete all eight Mega Hive missions you’ll be rewarded with exclusive goodies reserved for this gauntlet, including a significant amount of rare resources.

  • Pressure: Recovering Willpower by any means necessary is key when Pressure is active. Utilize Takedowns, regenerative nanite containers, and skills that boost the chance of enemies dropping Regen Packs to ensure that sustaining critical injuries isn’t always a recipe for a quick defeat.
  • Torpedo: It’s best to select heroes with strong Ranged Attacks or to equip gear high in the Precision attribute to best take advantage of Torpedo. Don’t forget, enemy Ranged Attacks also do more damage so be sure to Dodge and Evade incoming projectiles!
  • Incinerator: Equip any gear that provides Plasma resistance and pay careful attention to fire hazards in the environment whenever Incinerator is the modifier in play. Keep clear of the Dreadbot’s close range flamethrower!
  • Heavyweight: Stunning enemies is a very effective combat tactic and when Heavyweight is active, things just gets easier. Equip gear with a high Intensity attribute score to magnify the impact of this modifier.
  • Maelstrom: Keeping Willpower high and utilizing Heroics soon after they’re ready is key to maximizing the benefits of the Maelstrom modifier. Focusing on gear that boosts the Resolve or Valor stats are also effective strategies.
  • Clash: When Clash is active make sure to player a Hero who has strong melee abilities and equip gear high in the Might attribute. Don’t forget, enemies also inflict greater melee damage so watch out for combatants who try to get in close!
  • Resurgence: Quickly eliminating a single foe as opposed to bouncing around between multiple enemies or trying to control groups with area of effect damage will help make surviving Resurgence easier.
  • Famine: Focusing on Takedowns and careful usage of the regenerative nanite containers are key to survivability when Famine is active.

Check it out! New to the Marketplace this week is Thor’s Legendary “Bounce” Emote, Ms. Marvel’s Epic “Pizza Dough Has it Rough” Takedown, and Black Widow’s “Fear Itself” Outfit, among others!

The Marketplace is a place for us to feature purchasable cosmetics in the form of Outfits, Emotes, Takedowns, and Nameplates. The Marketplace’s Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary items rotate weekly, and can be purchased with Credits.

We released a small patch on 10/1 for PS4 & Xbox  (V1.3.2) which prevents a rare issue that could cause some players to lose progression. We’re testing our next patch, which will address ongoing bugs as well as introduce new content and requested features. We will keep you updated on the timing of the patch!
