The Herd is Coming!

This Event multiplied the number of Wall Walkers by 10x! A maximum of 100 Wall Walkers would be ready to clear from your wall every 50-60 minutes. Gas was also added as a potential reward, making this a great Event for XP, Food, Radios, Gold and Gas. With the extra Gas, you were able to run more Missions as well.

Hunting Season

This Event gave bonus damage of 50% to Hunters in Challenge, Outpost, and Exploration Missions.

  • Dates this Event occurred:
    • August 28 thru September 4th, 2016

Increased Chance of Epic & Legendary Survivors

This is a user favorite, and probably my favorite Event. I would love it if this Event would happen once a month! During this Event, the odds of getting an Epic or Legendary Survivor from Radio Calls increases. Nothing is guaranteed, but this is your best chance to get one of these coveted Survivors, so save up your Radios and use them when this Event comes around.

Data has been collected from users on the NG Forum, and the results are that 40% of 15x Radio Calls give an Epic Survivor, and 10% of 15x Radio Calls give a Legendary Survivor, with the other 50% giving Rare Survivors. This data sample is small (sample size = 450), but it gives an idea of what you can expect from this event. (Note: this data was all collected before the Token system was introduced.)

  • Dates this Event has occurred:
    • May 13/14/15, 2016
    • February 12/13/14, 2016
    • January 15/16/17, 2016
    • December 2015

Increased Hunter Chance from Radio Calls

This Event gave more Hunters from Radio Calls.

  • Dates this Event has occurred:

Increased Radios as Rewards

This Event increased the drop rate for Radios in reward crates after missions, and also increased the Radios found in those crates (2 Radios in Bronze, 4 Radios in Silver, 6 Radios in Gold). My results showed that the drop rate for Radios were increased by 3 times.

  • Dates this Event has occurred:
    • August 26/27/28, 2016

Outpost Attack Prices Halved

This Event reduced the cost of Outpost Raids to 1 Gas and 5 Trade Goods. The Cycle Rewards for Outposts were also doubled after this event.
