Delta Recruits are making their way through the various missions and part of that progress includes unlocking the Duty Officer system. As Delta Recruits reach this milestone, they’ll have the chance to use their Research & Development skills to build new equipment for the upcoming war.
For this week of the Delta Recruit event, the contributing event is research and development projects. Every time a Delta Recruit completes an R&D assignment, this will contribute to the meter. As the meter hits certain benchmarks, this will unlock progressively better rewards for the following week. Unlocking the initial reward will cause the following week to grant 25% more R&D XP to everyone, not just Delta Recruits. Hitting the second benchmark improves this to 50% more R&D XP, and hitting the third and final benchmark increases this to 75% more R&D XP for everyone for the entire week!
The only way to unlock these rewards is to make new Delta Recruit characters, complete the tutorial, and complete R&D projects. Of course, Delta Recruits unlock bonus account-wide rewards, too, so playing a Delta Recruit is advantageous if you already have another character.
See you in game, recruit!
