Hey everyone, this year’s Archives event is introducing our new mechanism for weekly event unlocks!
To unlock Archives weekly rewards, you’ll need to earn Stars. Stars can be earned by completing Archives missions. Each week, a different Archives mission will offer double stars, and you’ll have the opportunity to earn the most Stars by playing on higher difficulties or Challenge variants. With this system, you’ll be able to earn Stars even if you do not succeed with your Archives mission.
Our goal with making this change is to allow unlocks to be more closely tied to the seasonal content, while also finding ways to allow for partial credit even when you don’t win a match. Previously, the system was all-or-none in that losing a match didn’t earn you any progress towards your weekly unlocks. Please note that this will be an iterative process and we’ll continue to make adjustments to this system in ways that make unlocks more engaging for the seasonal content.

If you have an NVIDIA Reflex enabled GPU you will find an option to enable the “Flash Indicator.” When enabling this option a small white square will be displayed when your primary fire button is first pressed. For users who have Reflex Latency Analyzer equipped monitors, you can use the flash indicator in conjunction with Geforce Experience to get real-time measurements of your total system latency. It is important that the flash indicator be displayed with our without Reflex enabled so that users can understand their total system latency in all scenarios.
