Marvel’s Avengers: Missions and Rewards Updates (Week 23)

Marvel’s Avengers fans are one week closer to the official gameplay reveal of Clint’s Hawkeye, which means enthusiasm for the game is ramping up once again, despite the long lull in new content. Players who are returning to the game this week while it is back in the spotlight will find the usual series of Priority Missions, HARM Challenges, and a Mega Hive to grind through for some decent rewards.

Kate’s DLC did a pretty good job bringing some players back to the game and the deep discounts over the holidays aimed to increase the playerbase with some new blood, but the game has yet to really recover from its rocky start. Lots of bugs have been squashed, but now dedicated players are itching for new content, in addition to these weekly refreshes, to bring some new challenges and excitement to Marvel’s Avengers regularly throughout 2021.

The weekly rotation for Marvel’s Avengers sticks to the established pattern and brings some fresh motivation to revisit existing missions thanks to guaranteed rewards. Each challenge provides some unique difficultly thanks to special modifiers that players will have to adjust to. At this point, most players are likely very familiar with all of the different modifiers that the game rotates through and have hopefully figured out how to adjust their strategy to successfully power through the weekly grind without too much trouble.

“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:

Pressure: No automatic recovery of Willpower when critically injured.

Maelstrom: All heroics charge at a significantly increased rate. Entering critical health drains all Heroic energy.

Oasis: Regen Packs have increased Willpower benefit.

Goliath: Significantly increased presence of Exos.

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 more resource drops increase. As you near the final mission, you’ll see better gear and artifacts awarded more often, as well as 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.

That’s everything that is on the table for week 23’s Priority Missions, HARM challenges, and Mega Hive. Many endgame players are likely more focused on Tachyon Rifts at this point as they wait for the Cloning Labs and Clint to arrive, but the HARM challenges are a nice warm-up for any player to work through once per week as long as new or rare comics are up for grabs as a reward.

Marvel’s Avengers is out now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions currently in development.
