What is Classified Gear?
  • Classified GearSets are better versions of the GearSets that are currently in the game
  • They are the next thing to farm for
  • They will have special 5 and 6 piece bonuses
  • The 5 and 6 piece bonuses will extend the identity of the set and also change the way you play with it.
  • For example, when you liked Sentry, the Classified version will expand on the set and enable you to support your team even better.
  • Each introduction of a Classified GearSet will is also used as a chance to iron out bugs and rebalance the set
  • The 6 piece will be powerful enough, so that you are willing to give up the high-end or the exotic pieces
  • Classified items will keep the green color of the GearSets, but they are specifically marked as Classified Pieces in your inventory.

General Stats
  • The rolls of a Classified Gear Piece will start at the max-rolls of the current 256 items, so when you get a new piece, it will improve your current build.
  • You will be able to reroll 2 stats of the Classified Gear Pieces (for example Major / Minor or Firearms / Major etc)
  • They will drop at GS 256
  • Classified Gear drops with main stat rolls within a higher range, 1274-1401. This increased range is a buff to the available main stat ranges in game.
  • In any Normalized modes like Last Stand, Classified Gear acts like a standard 256 gear set piece, so that the expanded stat range does not create an imbalance. The Classified Gear 5 and 6 piece bonuses, if unlocked, DO take effect even in Normalized play, creating a still unique element to the set.


How to activate the 5/6 Piece Bonus?
  • You can combine the Classified Pieces with the GearSets you currently have to unlock the 4 piece bonus
  • This way you can keep your build until you have all Classified Pieces
  • BUT you can only activate the 5 / 6 piece bonus, when all items are Classified Pieces
  • You can´t unlock the 5 / 6 piece bonus with the Ninja Backpack


How can we get Classified Gear?
  • With each Global Event we get three new Classified Gear Sets
  • You have a chance to get Classified Gear Pieces from the Global Event Vendor (they drop from Caches) or from the Classified Caches that are rewarded from your performance on the Leaderboard.
  • Once the Global Event has concluded the Classified Gear Sets that were introduced with that Global Event will transfer over to the general loot pool with a very low drop chance.
  • Eventually all current GearSets will get a Classified version, but they will drop in groups of 3 with each Global Event.


Global Event Caches

  • During a global Event you can earn Global Event Tokens that then can be used to buy Caches from the Global Event Vendor in the Terminal.
  • The Superior Chaches reward you with two guaranteed items plus an optional bonus drop.
