Hello ARES Pilots! With today’s patch, we’ve re-introduced four gliders to Firefall: two to the Red Bean store and two to the prize pool for the Red Bean Reward Tokens. Long time players will recognize all four of these gliders, and some may even already own them, but don’t worry! We’ve not only made them available again, we’ve also updated them by giving them attributes that improve the effectiveness of every glider you use. These changes are retroactive for anyone who already owns these glider pads.
As a reminder, the two attributes that glider pads can have are:
- Quickened: For every different glider pad you own with the “Quickened” attribute, your shared glider pad cooldown is reduced by 3 seconds.
- Lofty: For every different glider pad you own with the “Lofty” attribute, the height to which you are boosted into the air on activating any glider pad is slightly increased.
Gliders added to the Red Bean Store
Dusk Glider Pad (Lofty)
Royal Glider Pad (Quickened)
Gliders added to the Red Bean Token Reward Pool
Sunset Glider Pad (Lofty)
Emerald Glider Pad (Quickened)
In addition to the four gliders mentioned above, we have also updated two more previously available glider pads, though these are not yet available again at this time. These two gliders are the Topaz Glider Pad (which is now “Quickened”) and the Sunrise Glider Pad (which is now “Lofty”). These changes are retroactive for those who already own those glider pads.
If you haven’t already, make sure to check out the Patch Notes for today’s patch, as there are a huge amount of bug fixes and general improvements included. We certainly aren’t going to stop there though, so make sure to keep on reporting any bugs you come across and leave us your feedback about your experiences in addition to sharing your ideas for what you’d like to see in future updates on our forums. We hope you enjoy these gliders, and we’ll see you in game!
