NEW FRONTIER HARVEST 2016 PATCH NOTES – releases on 11/14/2016


The New Frontier Harvest is back! Fight mutants in major and minor arkfalls. Get the new Ravenous Consumption synergy!

Finish the daily and weekly contracts to get your weekly reward. The reward will contain a guaranteed Legendary Ravenous weapon and an epic mod with the chance to be legendary (chance at a jackpot weapon).

A new pursuit has been added called "Reap the Harvest". Complete this pursuit during the New Frontier Harvest event to receive a special jackpot reward: The "Depravity" Sludge Rocket Launcher and the title "Glutton".


New converter mods have been added to the game. These mods, in addition to changing the damage type of your weapon, will now also contain stats like normal mods. This will not alter already existing converter mods that are already in your inventory or weapons, but will now entirely replace original converter mods as drops.

In addition, any currently existing converter mods will be altered, and will now have a reload stat on them. The reload stat will vary based on the rarity of the mod.


Ravenous Consumption
[1] On grenade hit, +45% movement speed for 5s
[2] On stim use, -25% Damage Taken for 15s
[3] On spike use, +25% Damage and Rate of Fire for 15s
[4] On kill, chance to reset grenade, spike, stim, and EGO power cooldown (Cooldown: 30s)

Included weapon types: Assault Carbine, Magnum, Mass Cannon, SMG, SS-2 Ranger, PAS-24 Tornado, GL-1 Ground Pounder

Chance at one of 8 all new jackpots (one special charge blade):

ALL Ravenous manufactured weapons (dropping from both the event and lock boxes) will have an additional effect: Killing an enemy drops a bonus consumable charge (Cooldown: 10s)! This is in addition to all synergy and bonuses.


Only available during the New Frontier Harvest event! Get it now before it’s gone! Turkeys everywhere! This limited time pack will contain the following:

• Legendary Ravenous Flock Lobber (Turkey launching Brood Lobber)
• Legendary Ravenous Roost Hatcher (Turkey launching Blast Hatcher)
• Forest Survivalist outfit and headgear
• Pilgrim of the Guiding Light outfit and headgear
• RM Nomad V6 "Guzzler" vehicle
