Special operations

Special Operations are limited time challenges where players can earn unique Boss items through battle and even a new hero by completing specified objectives. Once the time for the mission has expired, the hero is put back in the vault. Special Operations can be accessed from the Flight Deck or the Mission screen.

While normal missions require 10 energy to access battles, Spec Ops also require Unstable Iso-8 to do the events. It costs Unstable Iso-8 for battles and for Deploy missions. It can be obtained through gifts from friends, dropped in battles or deploys, or purchased from the store However, once the mission is expired that flavor of Unstable Iso-8 goes away with it.

Players can do both Story Missions and Special Operations at the same time without aborting the other. All Special Operation Missions scales difficulty to the players' agent level, much like premium missions, as opposed to free missions, which a fixed agent level was given and was scaling difficulties to agent level after the mission was 5-starred.

Spec Ops 1 cost 5 Unstable Iso-8 for both Battles (including Bosses and Mini-Bosses) and Deploy Missions, while Spec Ops 2 has changed to 10 Unstable Iso-8 for Low / Medium / High Threat Battles and Deploy Missions, and 20 Unstable Iso-8 for Mini-Boss and Boss Battles.

In Special Operations 1, players were required to 5-star all scenes to recruit Mockingbird. Starting with Special Operations 2, players were instead required to complete 25 Tasks in order (as opposed to 5-starring all scenes).

As of now, there are 21 Special Operation Chapters, with Savage Lands available for play until October 20th, when it expires.

Future Special Operations

  • According to a Twitter tweet of Justin Woods, he and Alex Irvine have finished up penciling a total of 18 Special Operations.
    • According to Developer Q&A VI, Woods has already submitted up to 28 Special Operations concepts to Marvel and is currently making concepts for Spec Ops 29.

Notes

  • It was once a recurring pattern for Special Operations Heroes to have had blonde hair, so much that players of the game made several theories and made it a basis for guessing which Hero would come out next as a Special Operations Hero. However, most of these heroes are not originally blonde.
  • When asked about the pattern in a Twitter Tweet, Producer Justin Woods replied that this was not intentional, and it is one of their running jokes in the office.
  • A Dialogue in Special Operations 8 nods to this pattern.
