Release Notes New Content

86K-a “Bardiche”

○ Class: Assault Tank

○ Faction: Colonial

Unlike the 85-series, the Bardiche sports a heavier, more durable build and is fitted with a coaxial heavy machinegun along with a powerful, short-barrelled 68mm turret. Modern Kraunian engineering allows for a fast reload, making it an ideal tool to combat enemy armour.

Gallagher Outlaw Mk. II

○ Class: Cruiser Tank

○ Faction: Warden

○ Originally designed in response to increasing swarms of Mesean armour, the Outlaw is an exceptionally capable medium tank armed with a long-range 40mm turret and includes a built-in storm rifle support position.

The Hangman 757

○ Class: Revolver Rifle

○ Faction: Warden

○ The weapon of choice for pirates and smugglers, its legend is well-earned. With incredibly high stopping power and unique revolver mechanism, the Hangman often plays judge, jury, and executioner.

Volta r.I Repeater

○ Class: Heavy Rifle

○ Faction: Colonial

○ An old war Mesean rifle. It boasts high stopping power, but not as accurate as its modern variant. A weapon of legend, the Howling Lions wielded the Volta during their raid on the beaches of Fisherman’s Row.

Clancy Cinder M3

○ Class: Long Rifle

○ Faction: Warden

○ The Clancy Cinder is a classic, high-powered long rifle designed for use in mid-to-long range encounters. First deployed with the Hands during a high-risk operation in Acrithia.

KRR2-790 Omen

○ Faction: Colonial

○ An older but reliable model of Kraunian long rifle. The Omen is a sturdy, simple weapon best used in long-distance skirmishes.

Sampo Auto-Rifle 77

○ Class: Auto Rifle

○ Faction: Warden

○ The precursor to the storm rifle, the Sampo Auto-Rifle, is a mastercraft of its day. With a single shot and automatic fire mode, this versatile rifle may not reach the fire rates of automatic weapons but more than makes up for it with utility.
