True to their word, BioWare is ending the Cataclysm event in Anthem after today. Will we get a replacement event? I’m hoping we do, and it’s rolled out fast. But for now, there’s a new Anthem Cataclysm update today, and here’s what got fixed.
Anthem Cataclysm update today September 17:
Cataclysm “Echoes of Reality” Changes:
- Arenas – The last event was added to the Cataclysm in Week 5, so you won’t need to learn any new ones this time. Now, it’s all about maximizing your runs and scores.
- Inversions – You’ll have a couple of new wrinkles to contend with on Inversions this week:
- Broken Magazine: Weapons have no spare ammo, but enemies drop ammo more often.
- Running on Empty: Firing the last shot in a weapon’s clip increases all damage for a short time.
Seasonal Store Refresh:
- War Chest: Ranger, War Chest: Interceptor, War Chest: Storm & War Chest: Colossus (Returning) – Each chest includes 1 Gear, Support or Melee piece for the javelin of that War Chest.
- War Chest: Weapon (Returning) – Grants one item from the new pool of weapons (which include MW and LEG variants): Pulse Accelerators, Volt Casters and Blade Slingers.
- War Chest: Gear (Returning) – Grants one Gear piece for a random javelin.
