SaladGuy-RSPN here to walk you through the Voidwalker event details.
What’s in the Voidwalker Themed Event
- Wraith town takeover
- Limited-time mode – Armed and Dangerous
- Exclusive event challenges
- Direct Purchase Shop
- Double XP for Top 5 and Wins Weekend
Wraith Town Takeover
Syndicate construction crews have unearthed part of a decayed Project: Wraith facility in Kings Canyon. Jump in to discover for yourself the mysterious remains of the research site, including a functional prototype portal that can be used to get an early jump on the base – or to escape and reinitiate skydive. And be sure to keep an eye out for other hidden lore details.
Limited-Time Mode: Armed and Dangerous
In the same spirit of Wraith’s escape, we’re introducing a brand new LTM, Armed and Dangerous, where weapons are limited to snipers and shotguns while overall loot is much harder to come by.
As with previous modes, keep on the lookout for in-game surveys and let us know your feedback. We’re planning to roll out more of these modes in the future, so your thoughts are much appreciated!
Event Challenges with Free Loot
Complete a variety of challenges to earn exclusive skins and Wraith-themed content. All challenges and rewards will be limited to the two-week event.
Direct Purchase Shop
As a tie in to the short, we’re adding a set of themed cosmetics such as the Voidwalker Wraith Legendary, which includes a custom character select animation.
New to this event we’re introducing lower price point items; outside of the legendary skin and frame, all themed cosmetics are $5. These items are Event Limited, so they will be eligible to return six months after the event ends on September 17. During the Voidwalker themed event they will rotate through the in-game store on the following schedule:

In addition to these cosmetics, we are adding six new legendary items to the core loot pool which can be crafted or obtained through packs. As a limited event promotion, each of these items will also receive a first look offer in the direct purchase store.

From 10:00 a.m. PT on September 6 to 10:00 a.m. PT on September 9, players will earn double XP for Top 5 finishes and wins. This bonus will affect both Account Level and Battle Pass progression.
