Underground Operations hub. This is where you access your underground missions.

Earn Underground XP by completing Underground missions. Underground XP will increase your Underground Rank which gives you access to more Directives (difficulty modifiers).

You will be awarded bonus XP when completing phases while using these Directives

    • Less than 15 minute completion time
  • 2 Phase Operation
    • Two varied objectives
    • Less than 30 min completion time
  • 3 Phase Operation
    • Three varied objectives
    • Less than 45 minute completion time

Some new weapons.

This “EMP turret” will prevent you from being able to use abilities if you are close to it.
