New Community Event!

It’s time again to work together as a community for a special prize! This time, you’ll be touring the globe on the Power Shift Platform! Not just once, but 10 times around the Earth! Push and pull that platform far enough and everyone will win a pink Historical Hi-Fi boombox to wear in the Arena! Fail to go the distance and the item becomes an unreachable relic! YOU CAN DO IT!

There will be a leaderboard tracking individual success (with distance added based on your collaborative team effort) which you can find here.

Now for the notes!

This week we are making quality-of-life improvements, adding some new functionality to contracts, another mode to Private Matches, and fixing bugs.

Players can now track up to 5 contracts inside the game, and you can find options in the settings menu to determine how much (or how little) information is displayed. You’ll also see improvements to the backfill settings on Power Shift, the removal of the glitching UI when eliminated, and a smarter Battlepass that always jumps to your current page.

Finally, we’ve added Solo Bank It to Private Matches and have fixed a number of contracts in the career circuit that were causing headaches to the majority of players.

All this and more! Read the details below:


  • Fixed an issue where turret sounds could linger if you quickly picked up the Guardian Turret after placing it down.
