CCP removes blueprints from Dust online store

Listen up, mercs!

With the deployment of Uprising 1.5 we will be making an important change to the in-game market with regards to Blueprint items. This means that after the Uprising 1.5 patch has been deployed, all existing Blueprint items – including militia items – will no longer be available via the in-game market. This will be an important step towards forging a robust in-game economy for DUST 514, and establish a solid foundation for implementing key economic features for the game in the future.

Note that Blueprint items will still be available on the PSN Store via the Veteran and Elite packs.

So don’t forget to take advantage of the in-game market now to secure items that you may need before they are gone from the in-game store!


Q: What is a Blueprint?
A: Blueprint originals or BPOs (sometimes simply referred to as Blueprints), are items of unlimited quantity that are always re-usable upon the death of your mercenary clone. Unlike other items in game, Blueprint items do not need to be restocked after death. These items can be identified by their blue bordered icon in game.

Q: What happens to my existing Blueprints?
A: Your existing Blueprints will remain in your inventory. Note that from the 8th of October, you will be unable to purchase new Blueprints except via the Veteran and Elite packs on the PlayStation® Store.

Q: If I purchase Veteran/Elite packs or use another code for a Blueprint, do I still get the Blueprint items within those packs?
A: Yes.

Q: Will Blueprints be returning to the in-game market?
A: There are currently no plans to return Blueprints to the in-game market.

I guess I’ll need to look at the store to see if there’s any blueprints I’ll need. I think the vehicle-related ones would be the best value.

    I don’t play Dust – but will this change annoy the players, or leave the early players much better off than those that follow?
