Few suits make you feel as powerful as a mech suit does. In this two-person vehicle, players can control its movement while their partner controls its firepower. Those feeling extra adventurous can operate it solo by switching between moving and shooting!

  • The first part of the Locker has arrived in Save the World. You can now use your Emotes, Music Packs, and Loading Screens.
    • The Locker is currently shared between Save the World and Battle Royale, so if you change it in either location, it will change in both.
    • Only Emotes, Music Packs, and Loading Screens are available for Save the World at the moment. We plan to support more types of cosmetics in future updates. Read more about this here.
  • Emotes:

    • Grab three other players and help Quinn get to the Radio Station to spin her Song of the Summer in this road trip adventure.
    • Quinn travels in a hover-truck, complete with a mobile storm defense shield.
    • Along the route are four randomized objectives, each with challenging gameplay and a variety of upgrades.
    • Get to the radio station, and protect Quinn from a final enemy wave. Hopefully you’ve collected enough traps, ammo, and resources to secure the victory!

    • You start the trip without your gear or supplies, making scavenging and harvesting a top priority.
    • You keep your trap schematics, and start with a few “hand-me-down” weapons, but weapon crafting is disabled.
    • Weapons with appropriate perks are scattered throughout the route, increasing your chances of survival without your weapon schematics.
    • Chests in Hit the Road spawn tier-appropriate weapons, traps, and resources.
    • Unlike previous events, Hit the Road uses Power Levels instead of Storm Shield Defense progress to match players to the correct difficulty, bringing more balance to the group.
    • If you are knocked out you will have to wait until your team reaches or completes an objective before you will respawn. Be careful out there!
