Super Hard Mode
Available: October 9th
Challenge harder enemies in the new Super Hard difficulty setting. On October 9th, Super Hard will be available for quests starting from Forest through Floating Continent. Not only will enemies be stronger, but their infection cores and attack behavior will change.
Gilnatch Cores can repair Big Varder's parts.
For example, enemies will now reach the player faster than ever before. Bosses will have increased speed and attacks.
Boost enemies will be infected by strange cores that have a life of their own. These new cores can perform different actions such as HP absorption or counter attacks.
Super Hard also adds the ability for Falz Arms to appear on each planet.
By no means is this rare enemy another Mesetan, Tagamikazuchi is a formidable opponent with swift movements and electric-style attacks. Once you defeat him, not only will you gain vast amounts of EXP, but you'll also have a chance to receive a weapon camo too!
Defuse the Time Bomb!
The Darkers have set up bombs in various locations. Cut the right power cord connected to the detonator to defuse the bomb before time runs out.

PSE Burst Readjustments (NEW)
- Players have lamented over the recent changes made to PSE Bursts. This adjustment seemed to counteract the effects of a bug known as "Exit Bursting" but it appears this correction has affected regular PSE Bursts as well. Though they will continue to prevent the bug from occurring, they have decided to shorten enemy respawn times under PSE Bursts. They will continue to watch the situation and make even more adjustments if necessary.
