The Return of the Knight Riders

Survivors! It is time to officially announce that Martin and his loyal knechte are returning to the Valley! You can expect all-new weapons and cabins, as well as the usual parts of the Knight Riders.

We remind you that all the new features described in the “Developer blog” are not final and may be changed before they are introduced into the game or may not make it into the game at all. Part specifications are also not final and are subject to change.

Resources and parts required for production (preliminary):

  • 650 units of scrap metal
  • 600 units of wires
  • 600 units of copper
  • 300 talers
  • 250 units of plastic
  • 2 cabins “Bat”

Launch your “Harpy” from the hangar even on a stormy day to make the enemies fear you and the allies respect you. Fit for regular raids. A fast and light cabin boosts your ammunition reserves and explosion damage.

Medium cabin “Photon”

Specifications:

  • PS: 1500.
  • Max. speed: 80 km / h.
  • Tonnage: 5000 kg.
  • Weight limit: 13000 kg.

This cabin was removed from a cargo planetary rover, which successfully worked on the surface of another celestial body. When it returned, it became a model for teaching the younger generation of engineers, and after the disaster, it also attracted Dawn's Children attention. It has a relatively high weight limit and durability for the cabins of this type.

Heavy cabin “Bastion”

  • 300 talers
  • 250 units of plastic
  • 2 cabins “Trucker”
  • 2 wheels “Lunar IV”
  • 2 shotguns “Sledgehammer”

A modified cabin of a tracked bulldozer which is a perfect fit for the heavy machinery meant to clear blockades and form pathways through the city ruins for the Brotherhood's primary forces. Incredible power and tonnage are offset by low speed.

 

New weapons and hardware

Frontal machine gun “P-29 Protector”

Specifications: 

  • Rarity: epic.
  • PS: 705.
  • Durability: 185 pts.
  • Energy consumption: 3 pts.

  • PS: 975.
  • Durability: 170 pts.
  • Energy consumption: 3 pts.

  • 1350 units of copper
  • 500 talers
  • 800 units of batteries
  • 2 miniguns “MG13 Equalizer”
  • 2 weapon boosters “Tormentor”

  • Ammunition: 16 pcs.
  • Durability: 850 pts.
  • Energy consumption: 6 pts.

Resources and parts required for production (preliminary):

  • 1350 units of scrap metal

  • 1350 units of copper
  • 500 talers
  • 800 units of batteries
  • 2 plasma guns “Quasar”
  • 2 wheel drones “Fuse”
  • 1 drone “MD-3 Owl”

Tireless inventors from Dawn's Children continue to develop their series of plasma guns. “Pulsar” is a logical continuation of “Quasar”, working at the maximum range with maximum accuracy.

New module — “Rift 2M”

  • 150 talers
  • 3 boosters “B-1 Aviator”
  • 2 cabins “WWT1”
  • 2 Shotguns “Lupara”

It seems that even the hardened knechte appreciate good jokes. Otherwise, how do you explain the creation of this unit? When activated, the squibs located in the module detonate, and all parts attached to the device are disengaged from the car. Does not deal damage.

In addition to the above parts, it is expected that the knechte will bring back the good old paint cans, decor and parts, such as the crossbow “Spike-1”, the revolver “Corvo” and the docking module “Contact 2M”.

Parts production

The production of Knight Rider parts, as usual, will take place on a special workbench using parts, resources and the unique temporary knechte currency — talers. Talers can be earned in a special mission, and they will be a non-tradable resource. Part recipes are currently under discussion.

Faction workbenches

The following parts from the last event are planned to be added to the faction workbenches simultaneously with the arrival of the knechte:

  • Plasma emitter “Helios” — faction “Dawn's Children”.
  • Single-round shotgun “Nidhogg” — faction “Firestarters”.
  • Radar “Oculus VI” — faction “Nomads”.

And finally — the arrival of the Knight Riders is expected in early April. Get ready to meet Martin and his faithful knechte!

We remind you that all the new features described in the “Developer blog” are not final and may be changed before they are introduced into the game or may not make it into the game at all. Part specifications are also not final and are subject to change.
