A summary of some features in Patch 2.0


Highlighting some of the most important Patch Changes, see the Patch 2.0 Notes.


Loadout Quickswapping

Whenever you change loadouts there is now a small delay.

Additionally if you hold down the swap weapon key (Q on PC) a radial menu will appear which will allow you to select which loadout you want.

Displayed Information:

  • Loadout Name
  • Weapon Icon
  • Weapon Nano
  • Power Icon
  • Grenade Icon
  • Spike Icon (doesn't help)
  • Stim Icon (doesn't help)

At some point in the future they will add specific items for the Spikes and Stims.

Item Unequipping

You can now unequip items from your loadout, this helps to decommission loadouts you don't use and make upgrading items easier if you are forced to have them in several loadouts.

If you unequip both weapons you appear with the cutscene default VBI Pistol which is pretty poor.

Upgrade Rarity

Note: At this time Upgrade Rarity has been disabled as it was found to re-roll Synergies during this process.

This one is currently set to cost 40 arkforge, it's probably low. It takes 20 minutes.

Arkforge cost will scale with the destination rarity, you are only able to do it one step at a time.

Upgrading a rarity will grant a new bonus for that particular rarity from the appropriate bonus group.

Timer on Claim Items

From the first time a character logs in after the Free to Play patch they will find that there is now a 7 Day timer on weapons and consumables left in your claims section.

Items which will Auto-Salvage:

  • Weapons
  • Shields
  • Grenades
  • Spikes
  • Stims
  • Mods

This does not apply to anything else stored in your claims, such as Titles, Outfits, Vehicles and Lock Boxes.

They are shown a warning when they login for the first time.

Siege Changes

You now have to defeat all the enemies in a way to now progress the siege, this had made killing Infected Hulkers at Kenn Farm now achieveable.

Dodge Durango

View Dodge Durango on 3D Model Viewer

Several lucky people found that the Dodge Durango vehicle as a special from the Headlands Transit Vehicle Vendor and purchased it.

This was not intended and Trion have removed it from appearing as a special, however they have not removed the vehicle if it was obtained. The rest of us will have to wait.

It is currently available as a vehicle for a special set of Time Trials, and will be available for purchase from the Defiant Few vendor during season 2.
