Games of Summer Rewards

Games of summer rewards

For participating in Games of Summer, players will receive rewards based on how many medals they managed to get. Don't worry, if you get the highest possible score in a trial, you'll receive every reward from all the tiers automatically (bronze, silver, gold, etc).

Each trial medal comes alongside rewards, however, just for participating you'll get the Games of Summer Cup weapon charm. Trials rewards also include vehicle skins, XP tokens, vehicle horns, calling cards, and Legendary weapon blueprints.

The Legendary Assault Rifle Juliet Blueprint will be available to those that earn gold on all five trials. On top of these rewards, individual medals will give points to a player’s respective country, with the scoreboard updating daily. The Top 15 countries will be visible on in-game leaderboards. Total scoring is weighted by country participants, so any nation can rise to the top.
