Rocket Pass is Live

Rocket Pass is a new reward system similar to Fortnite’s Battle Pass and PUBG’s Event Pass. Players earn tiers by leveling up. Tiers then unlock cosmetic items in two tracks, free and premium. Players acquire the premium track for $9.99, which rewards additional and different items from the free track.

The first Rocket Pass event begins today and runs through November 26th. For a more in-depth description of the first Rocket Pass event, read the dedicated page or the community “Explain Like I’m 5” post.
