Season 0 may have drawn to a close, but we’re already gearing up for the next exciting season of Scavengers. In Winter’s Fury we’ll not only be rolling out our first full-length Battle Pass, but we’re also excited to introduce you to the first new playable Explorer since our Early Access launch.
Rin is a feisty competitor, heading into the frozen wasteland with a few tricks up her sleeve. Armed with her trusty SHIN-48 rifle and Smoke Bomb, this fun-loving anarchist is ready to take on all threats to her team.
The SHIN-48 is Rin’s signature weapon. It’s a hard-hitting assault rifle that can quickly cut through anything that stands in her way. Upgrading the weapon will allow Rin to outline enemy players for her team, or even trigger a chain lightning reaction!
Rin’s signature ability, the Smoke Bomb, can be used for offensive or defensive maneuvers. Toss the Smoke Bomb strategically between you and the enemy and let the billowing purple haze provide cover for a tactical retreat. For more aggressive players, aim the Smoke Bomb at your opponents. Caught within the suffocating cloud, the smoke drains enemy Stamina over time and confuses AI opponents, perfect for taking the fight to your enemies!
Rin will be in the Shop starting September 15th.
And it doesn’t stop there. The Winter’s Fury season kicks off on September 15th! Winter’s Fury is Scavengers first full-length season, chock full of new items and gameplay features for you to enjoy.
Unlocking the Battle Pass immediately grants your first reward - Halden’s Black Death skin! As you progress through the Battle Pass, you can also unlock exciting Protector weapon skins for Tarik’s Longstriker, the Argonaut, and Rin’s SHIN-48 and a fun Cyberattack skin for Valora.
Unique banners, emblems, and titles are also available as part of the Battle Pass. And, to help your progression, you can earn Salvage, Research materials and even Chips. Don’t forget to click the ‘Claim’ button as you reach each tier!
There are over 90 curated items in the Winter’s Fury Battle Pass, giving you lots of opportunity to earn rewards and customize your Explorers.
There are two ways to unlock the Battle Pass:
We will also be introducing a number of exciting features, items and challenges throughout the Winter’s Fury season. Explorers will be able to get to grips with a new weapon that’s sure to get a rise out of the opposition: the Bait Bomb. This projectile grenade summons deadly Scourge to attack your enemies - great for weakening their defences or distracting enemies while you make a quick escape.
Elsewhere, R.A.S.P Rockets will be coming to Expedition Mode. If you’re reluctant to engage with other players, R.A.S.P Rockets offer you a quick evac mid-match to escape with Datapoints and Salvage intact.
This season will also see a new adversary hit the icy climes of Cascade Springs. Bulwark is a hulking Outlander, wielding two shields, a rocket-launching backpack and a surly disposition. Explorer’s looking to take on the ferocious opponent will have their work cut out for them.
We’ll be sharing more details on all of the above, and more, in the near future.
We hope you enjoy testing out the new Explorer, Rin, and the Winter’s Fury season. As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback, as well as what you would like to see in the future. Share them with us on Discord, Twitter and our other social channels!
