Weapon LoadoutsEdit


This weapon was available to anyone who logged in during the Closed Beta (Excluding the Open Beta Weekend) upon the game transitioning into Open Beta (Update 7). It originally had no rank restriction, so anyone who logged in during the Closed Beta could acquire it, regardless of time spent playing the game.

After the game entered Open Beta, Lato Vandal was unobtainable until Update 22.18, in which it was added as a reward in Elite Sanctuary Onslaught, a game mode introduced in that update. All the parts can be traded, although players must have a Mastery Rank of at least 7 to acquire the blueprint.
