Marvel’s Avengers weekly reset introduces Tachyon Rift missions

Marvel’s Avengers has new activities for players to take part in as the game undergoes its weekly reset. Every Thursday, developer Crystal Dynamics introduces new priority assignments for superheroes to tackle in exchange for rewards while also refreshing community challenges and the game’s cosmetic marketplace.

In the latest edition of the Marvel’s Avengers War Table blog, developer Crystal Dynamics gave us some more information about the newly added Tachyon Rift endgame missions. These were added as part of the recent 1.11 title update which is now available across all versions.

Instead of the regular Priority Missions we’re used to, this week’s missions have been swapped out for Tachyon Rift missions though will return very soon. To access this new type of mission via the War Table you will first need to complete the solo event missions “Breakout”. Tachyon Rift missions are classed as endgame content and as such you will need a Power Level of 140 to queue for them with a minimum of two players.

Marvel’s Avengers – 1.6% of players have reached max hero Power Level

This is the only activity in Marvel’s Avengers in which players can earn Cosmic tier gear for their characters. Tachyon Rifts will sap away at your health for the duration of the mission though the trade-off is an increased rate of Heroic energy. By strategically modifying your hero loadouts you should be able to tackle these new Rifts.

Here’s everything else you can expect from the latest Avengers weekly reset:

Priority Missions

We’ve removed Priority Missions from the WAR TABLE this week to keep the focus on new Tachyon Rift Missions! Don’t worry – they’ll be back!

Priority HARM Challenges

Priority HARM Room Challenges have additional modifiers and reward comics that increase your collection and boost your stats.

Weekly First Completion Reward: Avengers (1963) #4 (1% Armor)

Minimum Power Level 15 Challenge

Modifiers:

  • Cosmos: Cosmic damage from players is increased
  • Clash: Melee damage from any source is greatly increased.

Minimum Power Level 100 Challenge, +5 Power Level Offset

Modifiers:

  • Resurgence: Enemy health regenerates after a short delay.
  • Maelstrom: All heroics charge at a significantly increased rate. Entering critical health drains all Heroic energy.
  • Cosmos: Cosmic damage from players is increased

MEGA HIVE

The Mega Hive is 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.
  • Torpedo: Projectile damage from any source is greatly increased.
  • Heavyweight: Enemy stun meters build at an increased rate.
  • Turmoil: Significantly increased presence of Riotbots.

Weekly Rewards: As you progress through the Mega Hive, rewards start as basic gear, resources, and small amounts of cosmetic currency. The more missions you survive, the resource drops increase. As you near the final mission, you’ll see better gear and artifacts awarded more often, and increased chances for 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 high-quality resources.
