FOMO Watch: 22 July 2020

We have a few things concluding this window, so since I did this last time here's a brief last-day checklist before maintenance:

Note: The rewards for The previous Mission Pass Play campaign (Triboost +100% x2) and the last Use Group Chat campaign (Evolution Device: SEGA GENESIS) will be distributed in this maintenance.

Note: The rewards for the previously-concluded ARKS Handbook will not be distributed this maintenance, but in the next one on 5 August.


Fresh Finds Shop: Recommended Items (07/07)

This has already concluded as Fresh Finds is about 22 hours ahead of the daily refresh. Sorry for missing the notice time on this one.


Campaign: ARKS Boost Rally

City Area, Seabed and Nightfall Province.

  • The usual +150% boosts to EXP and RDR on these maps.
  • Clear each map 3 times to receive an SG 20 Ticket for each map which is delivered to the Visiphone immediately.
  • These maps also drop Evolution Device: Mini-Anga and Cydstrid which are unique to the campaign.

Campaign: Mission Pass Play

  • Claim the rewards from Normal Tiers 4, 8 and 12 to receive a Triboost +100% for each after the 19 August maintenance.
  • Use the Mission Pass Swap Shop once to receive an SG 20 Ticket after the 19 August maintenance.

Casino Boosts & Bonuses

Miscelleneous boosts to the casino games on a schedule. These have now all concluded.


Campaign: Get Free SG!

  • Log in each day to receive an SG 10 Ticket which is delivered to the Visiphone immediately.
  • Log in for 5 days total to receive three SG 10 Tickets which is delivered to the Visiphone immediately.

Independence Day Event

  • Lobby theme: Liberty
  • Glory Badges and their trades
    • Note that Berry Pie has an expiration approximately 12 hours after maintenance ends; they will continue to exist as items but cannot be used as food. This means they are usable for PSO2 Premium day.
    • Most recommendation I am seeing is to convert Glory Badges to Rising Weapons Badge 2s as this conversion may not be offered again.
  • VR Simulation - Training Day was associated with this event. As we cannot see the UQ schedule for the day before maintenance we do not know if any are still scheduled or if there will be an unscheduled one prior to maintenance but it can drop:
    • Charleville1776 (All difficulties - more on higher)
    • The Snow series of weapons (SH and XH - more on XH)
    • Enemy drops from enemies that are thusfar unique to this area (e.g. The 10* Bouncer weapon Gein Scrapper from Road Roller Lv.51+)

FUN Scratch - July 2020 Part 1

As FUN cycles on half-replacements, everything that is also included in June 2020 - Part 3 is likely to depart after the maintenance.

For FUN emote collectors, that means 09: Worried.

For FUN music disk collectors, it means PSO2 Event - Anger, PSO2 Event - Sorrow and PSO2 Event - Grey Light.

I expect both the scenery pass and theme will remain as they also seem to last two sets and were introduced in this set.


As a footnote, is appears no AC Scratch sets are concluding this week.

Thanks for the info as always. Keeps those of us who can't be around the game for long periods of time informed.

Hey thanks for posting these btw I know it's work you do of your own back

@Blackichan08

All this stuff is already posted both on the website and in game.

@Rhysticalz Yeah I know, but it's in one place for people who dont want to click past link's it just helpful to others.

Good info. For reference:

Use the Mission Pass Swap Shop once to receive an SG 20 Ticket after the 19 August maintenance.

Do you happen to know if this only applies to buying things with mission badges, or does exchanging a mission pass item for a single badge also work? I don't know if this event's ever really been done before on xbox-only or something that might serve as a reference.

There has been one Mission Pass Play campaign before and it did not require using the swap shop, so this is a first.

The page doesn't make any mention of requiring a specific exchange. Not in the regular text, the table or the red small-print. I expect this means any exchange would work, though as this is a first we can't know 100%.

Yeah, I figured that was probably it. I ended up tossing one of the bad CAST heads into the shop just to make sure.

Dont miss out on the famous □toile mag device from the mission pass everyone!!

This was hyper helpful for a moron like me who hadn't exchanged the badges till the last hour before the maintenance. Great thanks for compiling this!

Thanks all! Yeah when setting these up I've caught a couple smaller parts of multi-part campaigns I couldn't remember if I'd done earlier, including the mission badge swap shop (and that one I hadn't!)

I'm getting better at recording campaigns and scratches in a locally-kept list so I should be able to get these up with a little more time before maintenance in the future. Not sure I'd want to post them too early though since topics tend to sink after a few days. I'll probably aim for late Sunday.

Sad I won't be beating the cat on black jack to get me more badges anymore... I could still use an extra ray unit set... On the other hand, glad the PSUniverse fanfare is going. It was getting on my nerves.

So far we've had 4 weeks of wedding saccharine and 4 weeks of travelling between planets in Universe. I'm still hoping we get to hear the regular lobby music someday!

@Miraglyth And also the Station Square BGM for a while. I don't even know what the default lobby BGM is. As a NA newbie, I'm yet to hear it.

We got our wish! It's default now. 🎊

Gate Area and Shopping Plaza have different music normally. Who knew?
