Alcatraz Pursuits

Alcatraz introduces a bunch of new pursuits, helping you get closer to the EGO Cap.


New EGO Cap

Alcatraz changed the EGO Cap to 6.000. Read the history of EGO Caps here.


Updated Power Growth Rate

Meant is the power your character and NPCs gain when their EGO Rating increases. The current power growth rate made things challenging for low ego players. Read Rashere's explanation on what he did.


Updated Arkbreaker Weapons

After the Weapon Bonus Roll changes, the Arkbreaker Weapons have been updated to Mk II Variants.


Raising Event Rewards and Removal of Woot Loot

Woot Loot was based a lot on luck. So sometimes, your scrip and salvage income could be very high or very low, depending on your luck. To make Event Rewards more skill based, Woot Loot got removed and Event Rewards raised by roughly 25%.


Additions to the Patron Pass

The Alcatraz update introduces new boosts as well as the new currency, Hunter Requisitions, both of which will be included in the Patron Pass.


New Store Outfits

Fitting the prison theme, there are three new outfits coming out with the update: Convict, Inmate, Runaway.


New Store Boxes
