During the Gear Rush mini-event, Rare Chests are more likely to appear in Arms Race, and the green DAHL chests located at major points of interest in the Stormblind Complex have an increased chance to contain Arms Race-exclusive gear. 

Make sure you don't spend a bunch of time ogling your shiny new gear. Instead, equip it and get ready to face off Murdercane, who will be closing in at a quicker pace.

The Gear Rush mini-event will come to an end on February 11 at 4:59 p.m. GMT (8:59 a.m. PT / 11:59 a.m. ET).

Week 1 - Clear Skies

  • Event duration: 5:00 p.m. GMT January 21 to 4:59 p.m. GMT January 28
  • During the Clear Skies mini-event, all enemies had a chance to drop better loot and the Murdercane's circle took longer to close in so you had precious extra time to scavenge and explore.

Week 2 - Extra Extra Extraction 

  • Event duration: 5:00 p.m. GMT January 28 to 4:59 p.m. GMT February 4
  • During the Extra Extra Extraction mini-event, all extraction stations had additional slots so you could extract more gear. In addition, Air Drops had a greatly increased chance to drop DAHL chests, which were more likely to contain Arms Race-exclusive gear.
