Here’s what’s coming up for the week of February 18th – 25th:

Weekly Event: Arcade Double Trouble Blitz

We’re bringing back Arcade Double Trouble Blitz to give you a second chance at earning the ‘Big Game’ Medal, which unlocks the Punt execution – a fast new favorite out there in the community. Don’t miss out.

For you Tour completion hunters, this is also a great event to rack up a ton of progress on those Arcade medals!

Double Character XP Weekend: Escape

Double Character XP Weekend is back and we’re dropping it hot into Escape!

We’re doubling the Character XP rate of Boost all weekend (Friday – Sunday), up from the usual 2x rate to 4x! If you aren’t Boosted, we’ve got you covered with a free Boost drop every day beginning Friday at 2am PT.

Title Update 4.1.1

We have a second smaller hotfix in the works that we are submitting to Certification today. Pending timelines, this may release this week or early next week.

Once timing is confirmed, we’ll bring you the final date and full patch notes in this week’s What’s Up. This hotfix will include further fixes for key issues like the AI killing DBNO enemies too quickly in PVE, flashbang effects persisting on screen and more.
