Time sure flies doesn’t it, with the Arknights Global half year anniversary approaching us. As this is a warm-up event, there isn’t that much to it except to prepare for what’s speculated to be the Ancient Forge event.
With no new 6-star Operator, the Drillelectric banner will open from 15 July 2020 10:00 to 29 July 2020, 03:59 (UTC-7). The new Operators on rate up with the banner are:
- 5-star Guard Broca
- 5-star Vanguard Reed
6-star Sniper, Exusiai, will also be on rate up.
Completing daily missions from 16 July 2020 04:00 to 29 July 2020 03:59 (UTC -7) will grand additional rewards in varying quantities:-
- Elite material up to 4-star / purple rarity
- Keton Colloid
- Sugar Lump
- Orirock Concentration
- Oriron Block
- All class chips
- Skill summaries
- Strategic Battle Records
From 15 July 2020 10:00 to 29 July 2020, 03:59 (UTC-7), Half Year Anniv. Headhunting Packs will be available to purchase. Only one of these packs can be purchased, and it will guarantee one random 6-star Operator from the pack of choice:-
- Type-𝛂 Headhunting Permit: 10 Pulls, guarantees one of : Hoshiguma, Ch’en, Eyjafjalla
- Type-𝛃 Headhunting Permit: 10 Pulls, guarantees one of : Saria, SilverAsh, Ifrit
- Type-𝝲 Headhunting Permit: 10 Pulls, guarantees one of : Siege, Exusiai, Skadi
These packs will not affect your current headhunting rates. The relevant Permit will expire 2 September 2020 03:59 UTC -7.
The next event the global servers are speculated to get will be Ancient Forge, which will feature the game’s first limited Operator, 6-star Defender Nian, when her Headhunting banner, Earthborn Metals, opens. Bannermates Aak and Hung are not limited.
We’ll have to wait for confirmation, so enjoy the half year anniversary for Arknights!
