Possibly the most interesting thing out of the event is the introduction of a new equipment called the Evo Shield, which becomes stronger as you damage players!
Debut of New Equipment – Evo Shield
As part of the Deja Loot limited-time mode we’ll be debuting a new equipment type: the Evo Shield. When you pick up Evo Shield it will start out weaker than a Common Body Shield (White), but as you do damage to non-downed players throughout the match it can become even stronger than Epic Body Shields (Purple). Evo Shields change color as they progress, but their perpetual distinctive glow will help you identify them. Progress also carries over from person to person, so look forward to some interesting late game scenarios.
To start the Evo Shield will be exclusive to the Deja Loot gamemode and spawn at higher rates; after the event we’ll consider adding the Evo Shield to all matches, so please give us your feedback.
Thew new Limited Time mode is called “Deja Loot,” and it will have all loot spawn in the same location in every match for the duration of the event! Even the plane path and the circle locations will be fixed for this mode, and will change on a daily basis though the loot location statys the same for the whole event. The first week of Deja Loot will take place on World’s Edge, with the second week set in Kings Canyon.
There’s also a change on how the Heirloom system works.
We’re changing up the Heirloom system to make it easier for you to acquire the heirloom you want. Instead of an entire Heirloom set dropping at once, you’ll now receive Heirloom shards. You can then use those shards to pick the exact Heirloom set you’d like. The shards will have the same drop rate as the previous system, so that after 500 Apex Packs, you will have enough Heirloom Shards to obtain an Heirloom set from the Heirloom shop. And don’t worry, your existing progress towards the 500 Apex Packs will carry over with the switch. Remember that once a player owns all of the Heirloom sets, the player will not be eligible to receive more shards until more Heirloom Sets are added to the game.
