Battle Pass

Crystal Guard Battle Pass Story.jpeg

When you want the best in the world, skill will only take you so far. You can't do the top jobs if you don't have the top tech, and that's why I was recruited into Nighthaven.

Kali put us on the map. She believed in what I could do, and together we built the most reliable and renowned private military company there is. That's our legacy.

I'm a long way from making toys in my aunt's basement, but I am exactly where I am supposed to be.

- Osa

The expansion features its own Battle Pass. It is composed of 100 tiers across a free and premium track. Each tier rewards players with exclusive customization items, Alpha Packs, currency packs, and boosters for a total of 135 rewards. Progression towards the Battle Pass can be earned in any playlist (excluding Training Grounds).

Free Track

The Free track is available for all players. Those who purchase the Premium Track will still unlock rewards in the Free Track.
