Firefall Patch Notes for 1.6.1942

By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
General
• Hardcore Operations should now award epic or prototype equipment upon completion.
• A new script to restore old modules that were slotted in equipment prior to Update 1.6 is being run. Players should receive the full amount of modules upon login.
• Upon login, players should find one crate of epic equipment per Scorcher, Demolition, Draconis, or Bane Chitin core owned prior to Update 1.6.
--- Each crate grants an epic of each of the following items: Grenade, Medical System, Operating System, Head, Torso, Reactor, Arms, and Legs.
--- Crates are weightless until opened.
• Upon login, players should find two Titan Tokens per Kanaloa weapon owned prior to Update 1.6.
--- Any remaining Kanaloa primary weapons will still salvage for one Titan Token.
--- It is very strongly recommended that players purchase items with Titan Tokens to bring themselves below the Token cap (8) before salvaging any remaining Kanaloa primary weapons.
• Updates were made to the way zone transfer logic works. The result should be that players should not experience issues with transferring to different zones such as using /joinleader or joining and leaving instances.
