Heya there Prospectors!

We have a short release for you today, it’s time for another round of King of the Zeal!



The duo-event King of the Zeal is back next week and we implemented the preparations for it in this patch!

Those of you who may have missed it will be able to try out all those Zeal shenanigans yourselves. For the others, time to get yourself a new weapon charm!


  1. Use BACKSPACE to drop a Zeal shard, especially important for Blue and Cursed Zeals
  2. It never hurts to have a Kheper Revitalizer Heal Gun in your loadout 😉
  3. Coordinate with your teammate to create Zeal synergies

The Zeals:

  • Orange: The default zeal, gives points over time.
    • Gives 10 points per scoring interval when carried.
  • Red: Gives players a bonus on EVAC.
    • Gives 10 points per scoring interval when carried.
    • Awards 40 points on EVAC.
  • Yellow: Increased movement speed, but fewer points over time.
    • Gives 8 points per scoring interval while carrying.
  • Green: Provides the carrier with a healing aura, similar to the mobile Triage sphere, but is much easier to lose when taking damage.
    • Gives 10 points per scoring interval while carrying.
    • The drop threshold is lowered to 100.
  • Purple: Gives NO points over time! Instead, it awards points when dealing damage or healing allies.
    • Damage dealt / 20 or healing done / 20.
    • eg: 100 damage = 5 points
  • Blue: Deploys a shield dome when dropped by hitting BACKSPACE (default) on the keyboard.
    • Awards 10 points per scoring interval while carrying
    • Blocks incoming AND outgoing projectiles while the dome is deployed
  • CursedDeals substantial damage to the carrier and nearby enemies. Awards 4x as many points per second as orange. Only stops dealing damage when dropped.
    Bring some healing tools!
  • Deals 30 damage per second to the carrier
  • Deals 180 damage per second to nearby enemies
  • Gives 40 points per scoring interval while carrying

This time we have a Blue shard weapon charm for you all. Make sure to complete that special challenge, more than halfway done now!


  • Checking other Prospectors on the station will now show the proper Prospector level!
  • Fixed a small issue with player reporting.


  • Pressing Q (default) with the new Social Interaction Menu open won’t bring up the Quick Access Menu.
  • Voice chat will not work in the lobby when using the open microphone setting. Push-to-talk will work just fine.
  • Some players might experience issues with their mods on certain weapons and suits (k28, dragonfly)
  • Some killing challenges can still be completed by using the wrong weapon. Still working on a fix.


Please remember:

We are still in Early Access even though Season 3.5 has started. The game is still in development. This means that bugs and crashes are to be expected.

Please also keep in mind that queue times, especially late in the night might be longer than expected due to a lower player count around these times.

We hope you have fun during your time on Fortuna III and look forward to reading your feedback!
