      Omg. I grinded out a free season pass last month for the overtime thing...damn. A battle pass give you a BUTTLOAD of cosmetic stuff. Gonna try to earn another freebie for next month but realistically I will burn out before that happens. The ingame note suggest it would take about 75 hours to get enough of the currency through challenges to buy a pass.

      Proofreading this post, it sounds like a shill but I recently found some local players and we’ve been squadding up. For my first experience with a BR game, I’ve been enjoying myself.
