Marvel’s Avengers Red Room Takeover event guide – mission chains, rewards, dates

Delve into the secrets of Black Widow.

Black Widow is at the front and center of the Red Room Takeover Event in Marvel’s Avengers. This event will have you going back to the HARM Room, albeit with a twist. As you can guess, the HARM Room is shockingly now red. Marvel fans may recognize the Red Room program as the program in which Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow received her conditioning and training. This event continues off of the Rookskaya Protocols event left off, with Yelena Belova hacking into the HARM Rooms.

How to start the Red Room Takeover event

At the War Table at any Outpost, go to the Helicarrier. On the bottom left below all of the usual HARM Room challenges is the Red Room Challenge, marked with a red icon. You can also select one out of four difficulties, and you’ll play through five different challenge rooms throughout the event. Keep in mind that these challenges are played solo.

Along with the red aesthetic, the Red Room adds new hazards: for one, enemies can hit you with powerful Red Lightning. There is also techno lava, which can instantly kill either Heroes or enemies. Enemies will also drop Memory Fragments as resources.
