The winds of change sweep across the New Frontier, providing you more opportunities to play your way and acquire the loot you want!

The Ex Inanis

A mysterious faction of the Gulanee calling themselves "Ex Inanis" have appeared and seek a new resource: Purified Gulanite. In exchange for this new currency, Ex Inanis vendors offer loot boxes that contain your favorite synergies and mods! Purified Gulanite is obtained from a number of different sources:
  • Expeditions
  • Emergencies
  • Sieges
  • Arkfalls
  • Contracts
Also, all of the boxes sold by these vendors will have premium versions available on the store. Premium versions will:
  • Always contain Epic loot or better
  • Have a much higher chance to drop Legendary mods or weapons
  • Have a much higher chance to drop Perfected Weapons
No matter what you choose to do, you'll be able to acquire Purified Gulanite and purchase the specific loot boxes you want! Now more than ever, you'll be able to build an arsenal tailored to your specific playstyle.


This enigmatic Gulanee, who is rumored to be the leader Ex Inanis, has been seen in a few emergencies in Paradise. He is wily though, and will remain for only 2 minutes after the emergency has ended. During this time, you will be able to purchase the following items from him in exchange for Purified Gulanite:
  • Jackpot Weapons – Available weapons will rotate each week
  • Perfected Weapon Box – Contains one Perfected Weapon
  • Legendary Mod Box – Contains one Legendary Mod
Seek out this mysterious broker to get the best loot in the game!

Perfected Weapons

New weapons known as Perfected Weapons replace the old jackpot structure. Weapons within certain synergies have a chance to roll a perfected version, which will contain one of 3 different manufacturer bonuses:
  • Dynamic: +10% Increased Damage, +5% Rate of Fire / Crit / Reload / Mag / Recoil / Accuracy
  • Precise: +10% Increased Damage, +10% Crit / Reload / Accuracy
  • Berserk: +10% Increased Damage, +10% Rate of Fire / Mag / Recoil
These new Perfected Weapons will roll with random bonus stats, and will always be Legendary. In addition, we have added MORE weapon types to some of the most popular synergies. The first three synergies that are receiving new weapon types are:
  • Plate Slicer
  • Spinal Tap
  • Sustained Suppression
Old synergy boxes had only 7 different weapon types, but these will have up to 51! This means you have access to even more combinations of your favorite weapons & synergies to utilize in whatever way you choose. All Perfected Weapons will also drop from these weapon types.

Bonus: Daily Login Rewards for 4th of July Weekend!

As a special bonus, we'll be providing 250 Purified Gulanite per day to players who log in from 6/30 - 7/05. Each day resets at 10:00 AM PT (5:00 PM GMT).

Take advantage of this special 4th of July bonus and start collecting Purified Gulanite today!
