    Auraximas is here!
    The weather outside may be frightful, but that won't stop the Auraximas holiday from arriving. From Dec. 16 through Jan. 3, you can participate in this holiday event!

    Snowmen Return
    Snowman (and Snowman made of... stone?) are appearing once again throughout the battlefields of Auraxis. Destroy these frosty fiends for bonus experience, and you may occasionally stumble across a rare Golden Snowman, which might offer up a special surprise.

    The social hub of Sanctuary reveals new lights, sounds, and hidden presents that you can claim a reward from once a day!


    Holiday Missions
    Auraximas is about giving, and new daily missions have been added for you to share your generosity with the various vendors and personnel on Sanctuary. In addition, each of these completed missions contributes to a new holiday directive!

    New Directive
    New rewards and updated challenges await you for the duration of the Auraximas holiday.

    Seasonal Equipment
    Special equipment is available this holiday season, including gift-wrapped C4, cookie-box themed ammunition packs, and a deployable Tactical Snowman.

    Holiday Depot Items
    In the Depot you'll find new holiday items as well, like the Snowflake Lumifibers, Northwind Tire Trails, and a sleigh full of holiday horns, camos, weapons, and cosmetics.

    Infantry Adjustments
    NSX Masamune and NSX-A Muramasa
    • Direct damage from 185 to 225.
    • Adjusted rocket visuals so that smoke trails do not linger.
    Dev Note: Direct damage adjustments here bring the Masamune's anti-vehicle potential closer to the Decimator's without usurping its role.

    Standardized minimum blast radius of 0.35m to 0.5m. Impacted weapons below.
    Dev Note: The changes here are closer to cleanup, as its impact on damage output is miniscule.
