atomic

Utilize the power of nuclear energy, rearranging the atomic structure of yourself, your allies, and your enemies at will with the Atomic power set! Split Atoms, cause Thermochemical Explosions, and burn under the intense Nuclear Pressure causing unreal destruction. Transmute into fortified metal and reorganize your atomic structure to protect you and your allies in your Tank role, or harness the power of the building blocks of all matter to lay waste to your enemies in the Damage role.

Atomic allows players to assume the Tank role at level 10, and will be available on the Marketplace for non-members. Members automatically have access to Atomic!

  • There are two Atomic Power trees:
    • Radioactive – Explode with harmful radiation, reducing your enemies to ash and speeding up your recovery with the Radioactive tree.
    • Nuclear – Manipulate the subatomic structure of enemies to shield you and your allies with the Nuclear tree.
  • Two New Inspired Bys:
    • Firestorm inspired-by for Heroes
    • Neutron inspired-by for Villains

Suicide Squad PvE!

Taskforce X and Suicide Squad are making the jump from PvP to PvE, inviting Heroes and Villains to play together in On Duty Duos, Alerts, and Raids! Playing with more people means your On Duty queues will pop faster, PLUS you will have the chance to see the other side of the story when you play the opposite faction’s version of shared content.

Just as in PvP, players will receive the collar effects when placed in an opposite faction instance. Simply queue up for any instance that displays the Suicide Squad red target symbol. To opt out, open the Settings menu and turn off the “Enable Suicide Squad” option under the Gameplay tab. Choosing this option will only block you from going into the opposite faction’s version, it will not prevent you from being grouped with others who are faction swapped.

New R&D Gear System!

Salvage gear you don’t want, and use its components in new R&D Plans to build the rare gear do want. Make progress with every boss defeated, and build gear when the drop eludes you. Currently implemented for rare gear in Episode 18.

Salvage Episode 18 gear for Metalloid Scraps, combine them into Fused Metalloid Scraps, and build rare gear for your Chest, Legs, Waist, and Back with new R&D Plans. Head to the Episode 18 vendor to get started
