Update 15.5
Operation: Mutalist Incursions
Stop the Infestation!

A message from Alad V:

“Inhabitants of the Origin System! It is my singular pleasure to announce that today is the first day of a new empire. An empire populated not by Corpus, not by Grineer and certainly not by the Tenno. No, the Mutalist Empire will be populated by you. A glorious new you, baptised by Mutalist flesh. You’ve called this a disease, an infestation? I call it Unity. One army under me. Welcome you to your new species.”

– Alad V

Mutalist Incursions:

- The Infested are taking over areas of the Solar System. You must try to stop them, Tenno!
- You will receive an Inbox message from the Lotus with instructions on how to earn the Bounty for four different Infested enemies – Tar Mutalist MOAs, Swarm Mutalist MOAs, Brood Mothers and Boilers.
- Infested Alerts will begin appearing in the Solar System. Visit the areas of the Solar System that are under attack to take down the Infested and earn the required amount of enemy kills for each of the four Bounties.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

- Each Infested you take down will contribute a point to your Bounty totals.

Required totals:

Tar Mutalist MOA: 100
Swarm Mutalist MOA: 100
Brood Mother: 50
Boiler: 50

- Upon completing each Bounty, you will receive a Reward.
- This event is on now and ends on Wednesday, December 3 at 12 PM EST.

REWARDS

Complete all four Bounties to unlock access a special Survival Mission! How long can you Survive? Make it past 30 minutes and you’ll be rewarded with a New Puncture Mod Set!

Clans can compete on this Survival mission for the leaderboards! The top 3 clans in each tier will receive a Trophy.
The Tethra’s Doom Mods are also available as drops in this event within the Survival Mission.

Tenno…the more familiar you become with these enemies, the better you’ll fare against Alad V. Get out and take down the Infested, Tenno!

Mesa: The Gunslinger

Ballistic Battery: When activated, this power stores damage caused by guns. When triggered again, that damage is channeled through the next gunshot.

Shooting Gallery - Gives an ally extra damage while jamming the guns of nearby enemies. This power shifts between team members.

Shatter Shield - Envelops Mesa in a barrier of energy, reflecting back incoming bullet damage.

Peacemaker - With intense focus, Mesa draws her Regulator pistols, shooting down her foes in rapid succession.

  • Obtain Mesa through defeating Mutalist Alad V!
  • Longhorn Mesa Alt Helmet can be found in the Market today!

Mutalist Alad V!


New Quest: Patient Zero

New Boss: Mutalist Alad V

Consumed entirely by Infestation, Alad V has thrown the Solar System into turmoil using his new Infested experiments. Be warned, Tenno – Alad V is the likely cause of this new outbreak and must be stopped at all costs. Use the deadliest tools at your disposal to bring down the renegade Corpus madman!

You can encounter Alad V by beginning the PATIENT ZERO Quest. This Quest will take you through the steps to locate and fight what Alad V has become! Find Mutalist Beacons through Infestation Outbreak rewards. The Lotus needs 3 Beacons to triangulate Alad V’s position.

New Weapons



New Melee Weapon: Redeemer. Striking with massive twin blades, the Redeemer fires the killing blow with its built-it shotgun.
New Weapon: Gammacor. Designed to quickly vaporize minerals for content analysis, users discovered its powerful beam was equally efficient at dispatching hostiles.
New Weapon: Paracyst. Completely overwhelmed by Infested biology, this former Quanta now fires organic ordinance and a harpoon like appendage.
New Archwing Weapon: Dual Decurion. Delivering twin streams of highly accurate, rapid-fire ordinance, the Decurion are specifically designed for combat in the vacuum of space.

New Syndicate Weapons: Each weapon has an adjusted stat and built-in Justice / Truth / Entropy / Sequence / Purity / Blight to better reflect its Syndicate’s nature.
