Built to Destroy!

From the Release Notes:

New Boss Stratum:

Within the depths of Tier 2 a new gremlin weapons facility has been discovered, The Ironclaw Munitions Factory. Intel from Spiral HQ has confirmed that under a direct mandate from the Crimson Order, gremlin engineers have begun developing a weapon of incredible power. Known only as 'Project Roarmulus,' this weapon has been designed with the sole purpose of destroying Haven!

Knights are ordered to infiltrate this harrowing complex of devious destructive devices and put an end to 'Project Roarmulus' as well as recover a recon module of the Alpha Squad. Take heed though, gremlins don’t exactly believe in a ‘safe’ work environment.

Survive this deadly complex and earn your Bark Modules as you'll find that Brinks has a new selection of 2* items available for trade. These include:

  • The Pulsar, an experimental energy gun that shoots bullets that grow stronger as they travel
  • The Catalyzer, a gun whose regular shots can be combined with its charge shots to create a powerful explosion
  • Quicksilver Mail and Helm, armor created from the mercurial quicksilvers, capable of resisting shock
  • The Static Capacitor, a bomb that creates a shocking field of electricity

All of these items can be further upgraded through 5* provided you acquire their recipes from Basil.
