Escalation Protocol Rewards Guide
The rewards of the new event are divided into three categories: Cosmetic Rewards, Weapons and Armor.
These items can be contained in any Reward Chest, but have a low drop chance. The further you get in the event, the higher the chance you get one of the exclusive items. Cosmetic rewards include a ship, a sparrow, and a ghost shell.
The escalation protocol can reward you with three exclusive weapons: a shotgun, a sniper rifle, and a submachine gun.
The weapons are updated every week, as are the bosses themselves. Each weapon is tied to a boss.
The armor is different from the other rewards, armor can only be obtained from the chest that appears after the boss at the end of the seventh wave.
In addition, you need a special key to open the chest, each character can produce only one key per week. To make a key you have to play different war spirit activities.
