Happy Thursday Marvel fans, and welcome to our Marvel’s Avengers WAR TABLE Weekly Blog, where we'll give you the scoop on news, patch notes, Marketplace updates, and more!
How is it already mid-November?? 2020 has been paradoxically the shortest and longest year in memory. We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy as we head into the holiday season! In the meantime, we’re still hard at work on improving Marvel’s Avengers from home.
Take a look at this week’s modifiers and marketplace updates. If you didn't have the time on 11/10, go check out the Patch Notes now to see what we’ve improved. And as always, we hope you have a good time catching up with Marvel’s Avengers!

The Mega Hive is a single-player chain of eight missions that tests your team’s might. Each week, you’ll have a shot at completing the Mega Hive mission chain. When you defeat all eight missions, the Mega Hive mission chain is removed from the War Table until the next weekly refresh, when you can run it again with new modifiers.
This week’s modifiers include:
Weekly Rewards: As you progress through the Mega Hive, rewards start as basic gear, resources, and small amounts of cosmetic currency. The more missions you survive, the resource drops increase. As you near the final mission, you’ll see better gear and artifacts awarded more often, and increased chances for patterns/nameplates. When you complete all eight Mega Hive missions, you’ll be rewarded with exclusive goodies reserved for this gauntlet, including a significant amount of high-quality resources..
Modifiers are game changers! Check out some pro-tips from our team that will help you prepare for this week’s challenges!
- Resurgence: Quickly eliminating a single foe as opposed to bouncing around between multiple enemies or trying to control groups with area of effect damage will help make surviving Resurgence easier.
- Torpedo: It’s best to select heroes with strong Ranged Attacks or to equip gear high in the Precision attribute to best take advantage of Torpedo. Don’t forget, enemy Ranged Attacks also do more damage so be sure to Dodge and Evade incoming projectiles!
- Maelstrom: Keeping Willpower high and utilizing Heroics soon after they’re ready is key to maximizing the benefits of the Maelstrom modifier. Focusing on gear that boosts the Resolve or Valor stats is also an effective strategy.
- Collider: Equip any gear that provides additional Particle damage or increases the rate at which the Particle status meter builds to really heat things up when Collider is active.
There are several new items in the marketplace this week featuring Black Widow and Iron Man wares, including Widow’s Legendary “Infiltrator” outfit and Iron Man’s Epic “Air Guitar” Emote.
The Marketplace is a place for us to feature purchasable cosmetics in the form of Outfits, Emotes, Takedowns, and Nameplates. The Marketplace’s Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary items rotate weekly, and can be purchased with Credits.
