Doctor Octopus is mobilizing his Sinister Six cohorts for two upcoming events that offer you the opportunity for a big score. And when you're done paying tribute to the Sinister Six mastermind, we've got an x-citing addition to the War Store, an electric Blitz, and another lucrative mission for your mercenaries. Now, head down to the next section immediately -- boss's orders!
Join the meeting of the evil minds this September and earn big rewards in the Sinister Assembly event! Pilfer Purple and Orange Gear, along with Elite 5 Credits, Gold, and more as you pay tribute to the Sinister Six's leader. Here's what the Sinister Six has in store for you:
Doctor's Orders Milestone
Earn Sinister Credits from Daily Objectives, spending Campaign Energy, and Blitz & VS Battle Matches (launched via the Events section), then use this special currency to open Assembly Orbs in the Store for orange, purple, and blue gear rewards.
Hunting Grounds Milestones
Duke it out against other Commanders in VS Battles to score points and earn Sinister Credits in a daily milestone. VS Battle matches must be launched from the Events section to score points.
Continue logging in every day for 14 days to earn: Sinister Credits, Mega Orb Fragments, Campaign Energy, Gold Orb Fragments, and gear.
Raining Gold - 2x Gold rewards from Campaign nodes
Energy Overload - Receive 240 Campaign Energy instead of the normal 120 when refreshing Campaign Energy
Catalyst Cataclysm - 3x Basic Catalysts from Campaign nodes
Add the eight-armed expertise of Doctor Octopus in his upcoming Legendary Event: Surgical S.T.R.I.K.E. Now that Doom has seized control of Nexus Earth, S.T.R.I.K.E. will require the services of this tentacled intellectual. Join Doctor Octopus as he leads the elite black ops team, X-Force, on a mission to cripple Doom’s supply line.
To assist in this high stakes mission, you'll need five X-Force members at 5-Stars, including new recruits Domino, X-23, and Negasonic Teenage Warhead. You don't want to miss this event. With Doctor Octopus at the helm, the Sinister Six transform into a dominant force capable of crushing enemies on the battlefield.
War Store Update
Put the finishing touches on your X-Force team with X-23 character shards, available soon in the War Store. Claw your way to this brutal Brawler's character shards and join the mission for Doctor Octopus.
Charge up your roster with this week's shocking Blitzes. Leading off the festivities is our community poll winner: Psychotic Blitz, where you can wreak absolute havoc in the name of Carnage character shards. Bolting into Blitz next is the Sinister Six's newest Blaster, Electro, in the first round of the Bright Persona Blitz. Be sure to light up as many of her shards as you can and recruit Electro.
