UPDATED 11/28/22 11:30AM (PST) The Battle Scars event section incorrectly said "spend 1 Campaign energy" when it should have said "Spend 1 Dogs of War Energy".
We hope you didn't spoil your appetite for information! Today, we're serving up a double portion of details that'll cover the next couple of weeks while our studio takes a break for the American Thanksgiving holiday. Read on, Commanders!
Dogs of War Event Campaign
Recruit the spycraft expertise of Nakia on November 21st at 1:00PM (PST) with the Dogs of War Event Campaign! Join Nakia as she attempts to track down the person hunting members of the War Dogs, Wakanda's elite spy force.
The Dogs of War Event Campaign will feature a new structure that'll make obtaining Nakia character shards easier while giving you the opportunity to have fun with Nakia and her War Dogs in battle. Here are the details:
Battle through the Easy Campaign Missions to earn Nakia character shards directly from the first-time rewards, along with Covert Orb Fragments (details below), and Gold. Once you've recruited Nakia, you can attempt Hard Missions, although you can also Auto-Win the Easy nodes to gather more rewards, minus the Nakia shards.
Hard Difficulty - Requires Nakia
After recruiting Nakia, you can attempt Hard Difficulty Missions. Battle with Nakia and other characters of your choice to earn more Nakia shards from the first-time rewards, along with Covert Orb Fragments, Gold, Catalyst Parts, and gear.
Heroic Difficulty - Requires Nakia & War Dogs
If you've recruited Black Panther (1MM) from The First Panther Event, along with the rest of the War Dogs team, you can test their might in the Heroic Difficulty. Battle through Heroic Missions with Nakia and the complete War Dogs team to rack up Nakia shards and Teal gear, among other rewards. Heroic will reward the best payout of Covert Orb Fragments per Energy spent, so dive into this difficulty for the best return on Energy.
The Covert Orb features Nakia character shards in the side pillars and characters with the limited-time Covert trait characters in the center pillar, including Nakia at a higher drop rate. So open these orbs to rank up Nakia after you've collected her shards from the first-time rewards.
The First Panther Events
Running in parallel with the first week of the War Dogs Event Campaign on November 21st at 1:00PM (PST) is the Spy Games Event, where you can earn even more rewards just by participating in the War Dogs Event Campaign. Here's how to grab high-profile rewards, along with The First Panther progress:
Spy Game Milestone
Earn points toward this 7-day milestone from the Dead Drop Milestone rewards, the Sleeper Agents Web Milestone rewards, and by spending Power Cores. Pilfer rewards that include:
- Vibranium Meteorites

Go on a mission with your Alliance in the name of Iso-8 resources on November 25th at 1:00PM (PST) with the second run of Coordinated Assault. Spend Iso-8 Campaign Energy to earn points (1 Energy = 1 point) toward a 7-day Alliance Milestone that rewards T2 Level 1 Ions, T1 Ions, and Vibranium Meteorites for progress in The First Panther.
Take a break from guarding the galaxy on November 25th at 1:00PM (PST) for Holiday Rumble. The featured trait for this Quick Rumble Blitz will be Guardian, and along with Quick Rumble rewards, Holiday Rumble will reward Vibranium Meteorites, Blitz Credits, and Ability Materials. Reach lightspeed milestone progress by winning with characters who possess the Guardian trait at 3 Stars (500pts) or go even faster with those characters at 5 Stars (1,000pts) and 7 Stars (5,000pts).
Claws of Fury
Take a little piece of Marvel Studios' Black Panther: Wakanda Forever with you on November 28th at 1:00PM (PST) with the Claws of Fury Event.

Famine Scourge Event
Feed your roster Horseman character shards on November 19th at 1:00PM (PST) with the return of Rogue's Famine Scourge Event. Whether you're adding another star to Rogue or recruiting her to your roster, you don't want to miss this opportunity. Prep now by powering up your A-Force, Young Avengers, and Inhumans in order to tackle Nodes 5 and 10 on Difficulty 5+. And just like last time, players that already have 810 Rogue character shards will be moved to the separate Champion’s Bracket where there will be separate Milestone Rewards that don't include Rogue shards.
Scourge Event Leaderboard Updates
With all of the excitement around the recent Version 6.5 Release, we failed to mention that a Scourge Event leaderboard update went live. Previously, leaderboard ties were identified and addressed after a Scourge Event ended, which meant you wouldn't know your final placement until an Inbox arrived with your rewards. We were also breaking ties based on individual Total Collection Power.
Going forward, ties will be identified and resolved at the time the scores are recorded, so you'll know in real-time what your leaderboard placement is for a Scourge Event at any given moment. Ties will be broken based on who recorded that particular Run Score first, so don't delay when attempting a Scourge Event run! This update was live during the recent Pestilence Scourge Event and will be active going forward, including Rogue's upcoming Famine Scourge Event.
Death Scourge Event Details
The epic journey to confront and take down Apocalypse enters a new chapter with the upcoming Death Scourge Event. Today, we're revealing some of the event's details to help you brave the challenges and recruit Archangel, Apocalypse's Horseman of Death.
To help you prepare your roster for this test, here are the traits you'll need for each difficulty:
The event will see 9 new Scourges and 20 returning Scourges. Some of the returning Scourges will have updated point values. However, those point values are only applicable to the Death Scourge Event and will not affect the other Horsemen Events they appear in.
Of special note are the three Scourges that affect Minions: Undead Swarms, Rise Anew, and Super Soldier Serum. These Scourges are all worth a hefty 23 points and will affect all Minions in a battle – player Minions included! Keep these Scourges in mind, especially for the first two nodes, which require Minion characters, as they can be used strategically to support your own Minions.
The Scourges being removed are: Pyrrhic Victory II, Dark Rally, Power Fatigue I, Power Fatigue II, Power Syphon I, Stay Down, Stage Fright, Flight or Fight, and Rope a Dope.
Cyber Turkey Hunt
Get more bang for your buck during your MARVEL Strike Force holiday shopping with the upcoming Cyber Turkey Hunt. This premium event will start on November 23rd at 1:00PM (PST) and is a great way to get even more rewards from in-game and web offer purchases. If there isn't an offer that tickles your fancy, there'll be some Cyber Turkeys trotting around – in the login calendar and others via Free Web Offers. Here's how this premium event will work:
Cyber Turkey Hunt Milestone
Earn points toward this milestone by collecting Cyber Turkey currency from
the Free Web Offers, the login calendar, and select offers specifically labeled "Thanksgiving," "Black Friday," or "Cyber Monday." Milestone rewards include Teal Gear, Ability Materials, Promotion Credits, Gold, Training Orb Fragments, and Iso-8 Materials.
Mojo's Mayhem: Season 26
Mojo is back to exchange Ratings for fabulous prizes during Season 26 of Mojo's Mayhem. The featured reward this season will be Brawn character shards, so get ready to Blitz and crush enemies in Real-Time Arena to walk away with rewards, courtesy of your favorite Spineless One.
