Hello everyone!

A new week means we have a new This Week in Gears!

Versus Event: Hyper Dodgeball

Hyper Dodgeball returns! Eliminate the opposing team to win. Every kill brings back a dead teammate.

Remember as its hyper that means respawn times are 2 seconds, so expect fast and frenetic action with each respawn in the mode!

To celebrate this event, we have a special Medal group you can complete, which will grant you 3,000 Coins.

  • Good Work – Deal 50,000 Damage in the Hyper Dodgeball Versus Event
  • Oh Sweet Oblivion – Get 50 eliminations in the Hyper Dodgeball Versus Event
  • More than soldiers – Complete 10 Rounds in the Hyper Dodgeball Versus Event
  • You are the Support – Score 1,000 Points or more in 3 Hyper Dodgeball matches.

Good luck!
