Mega Hives are a single-player chain of eight missions that tests your team’s might. Each week you’ll have a shot at completing the Mega Hive mission chain. When you defeat all eight missions, the Mega Hive mission chain is removed from the War Table until the next weekly refresh, when you can run it again with new modifiers.   

This week’s modifiers include:      

  • Resurgence: Enemy health regenerates after a short delay.   
  • Famine: Enemies do not drop Regen Packs when defeated.   
  • Oasis: Regen Packs have increased Willpower benefit.   
  • Scourge: Significantly increased presence of Prime Synthoids.      

Weekly Rewards: As you progress through the Mega Hive, rewards start as basic resources a small chance of cosmetic drops. The more missions you survive, the resource drops increase, as does your chance at gear and minor artifacts. As you near the final mission, you’ll see artifacts more often, and increased chances of patterns/nameplates. When you complete all eight Mega Hive missions you’ll be rewarded with exclusive goodies reserved for this gauntlet, including a significant amount of rare resources.   

Modifiers are game changers! Check out some pro-tips from our team that will help you prepare for this week’s challenges!      

  • Resurgence: Quickly eliminating a single foe as opposed to bouncing around between multiple enemies or trying to control groups with area of effect damage will help make surviving Resurgence easier.   
  • Capacitor: Thor’s already impressive pedigree is improved when Capacitor turns up the lethality of his lightning-infused attacks. Make use of his intrinsic Odinforce ability to lay waste to foes in a manner worthy of his heritage. If Thor isn’t your Hero of choice, make sure to equip gear with Shock perks or use other Heroes—like Black Widow—who also have Shock-inducing attacks in their arsenal.   
  • Famine: Focusing on Takedowns and careful usage of the regenerative nanite containers are key to survivability when Famine is active.   
  • Maelstrom: Keeping Willpower high and utilizing Heroics soon after they’re ready is key to maximizing the benefits of the Maelstrom modifier. Focusing on gear that boosts the Resolve or Valor stats are also effective strategies.   
  • Helix: When Helix is active Hulk becomes a force to be reckoned with. Leverage his intrinsic Rage ability and any of his gamma-infused attacks to dominate the battlefield. Don’t like playing Hulk? Make sure to equip gear that inflicts Gamma damage and has high Intensity to help trigger the Gamma status effect.   
  • Torpedo: It’s best to select heroes with strong Ranged Attacks or to equip gear high in the Precision attribute to best take advantage of Torpedo. Don’t forget, enemy Ranged Attacks also do more damage so be sure to Dodge and Evade incoming projectiles!   
  • Clash: When Clash is active make sure to player a Hero who has strong melee abilities and equip gear high in the Might attribute. Don’t forget, enemies also inflict greater melee damage so watch out for combatants who try to get in close!   
  • Heavyweight: Stunning enemies is a very effective combat tactic and when Heavyweight is active, things just gets easier. Equip gear with a high Intensity attribute score to magnify the impact of this modifier.   
  • Bane: Adaptoids are one of the more challenging enemies in the game and Bane just makes them more prevalent. To defeat these powerhouse opponents, don’t let them restore their health. If you see them put up their shield to regenerate, get in close and use a Power Attack to stop them from healing.      

Black Widow’s Epic Takedown What A Pushover”, Captain America’s legendary emote “Shield Play”, Thor’s Epic Outfit “Son of Asgard” and more!   

The Marketplace is a place for us to feature purchasable cosmetics in the form of Outfits, Emotes, Takedowns, and Nameplates. The Marketplace’s Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary items rotate weekly, and can be purchased with Credits.   

Will be updated with the next patch. Stay tuned and check back!
