Marvel’s Avengers Patch Notes v2.7.1

New Features

  • New Winter Soldier Mission Chain: ‘Winter Kills’
    • Rewards players with a full set of Power Level 165 gear. You’ll need to complete a list of objectives that starts with finishing Bucky’s Heroic Mission Chain and culminates in completing the Discordant Sound raid (on Normal difficulty).
  • Breakdown of the gear and resources you’ll earn from the new mission chain:
    • Melee Exotic Gear 165 (Hero A – Classic set)
    • Ranged Exotic Gear 165 (Hero A – Classic set)
    • Defense Exotic Gear 165 (Hero A – Classic set)
    • Heroic Exotic Gear 165 (Hero A – Classic set)
    • Minor Artifact at 165 (x2)
    • 10,000 Fragments
    • 2,500 Polychoron
    • 5,000 Units

Reassemble Campaign and Avengers Initiative

  • Having Kamala as a companion while equipped with the “Polymorph Counter Spike” perk no longer causes the game crash that some players experienced after Update 2.7.
  • In the new Omega-Level Threat: AIM’s Cloning Lab, MODOK can no longer dodge to the side while his gigabeam is active.
  • Also in the Cloning Lab, we added collision boxes to certain environmental elements in the boss encounter room to prevent Heroes from clipping into the world.
  • Similarly, the camera for some players would clip under the floor when those players would take damage during the MODOK fight. We’ve updated the collision elements in the floor assets to prevent this from happening.
  • We fixed an issue causing the camera to lock onto the player during the MODOK fight rather than MODOK.
  • MODOK will occasionally follow flying Heroes without attacking them, but the Avengers don’t get off that easy! MODOK will now attack flying Heroes, as intended.
  • Damage modifiers were not applied correctly to MODOK when targeting specific parts of him – specifically the head and terrigen crystal. We’ve fixed this so that damage modifiers are applied correctly!
  • When playing with a full Strike Team, MODOK’s gigabeam VFX weren’t displaying for at least one player in the party. All players in a Strike Team will now see the VFX.Matchmaking hosts controllers will no longer vibrate when another player in the party playing as Winter Soldier shoots his rifle.

User Interface

  • The mission chain descriptions for “Omega-Level Threat: AIM Cloning Lab” now have the correct descriptions.
The Winter Soldier’s ‘White Wolf’ Outfit is now a Specialty Item in rotation until January 5, 2023.

Art and Animation

  • MODOK’s back battery was missing its gem, so we added the VFX in for that!
  • Bucky no longer draws his weapon automatically after using a melee attack.

Gear, Challenges & Rewards

  • Black Widow’s ‘Support Cryo Administrator’ Perk no longer grants double the expected nanites to allies.
  • Black Panther’s ‘Ultimate Gamma Administrator’ Perk no longer doubles the expected amount of nanites to allies.
  • ‘Ultimate Lethal Cryo’ and ‘Ultimate Gamma Administrator’ Perks now grant charges for appropriate Heroes as intended.

Known Issues and Workarounds

  • Stat growth on exotic gear pieces and the Ultimo-Stone legendary minor artifact is currently under-tuned. We are working on a fix so that there will be greater jumps in stat growth at PL 167, 171, and 175 than at present.
    • Currently, the stat growth gates are at PL 171 and 174.
    • This fix is not present in this update – 2.7.1 – but will come shortly after!
    • For now, our recommendation is that you do not upgrade your favorite gear pieces past PL 170 until the fix is live.
