As the primary supervisor of supply distribution, the Quartermaster is your one-stop shop for acquiring new items. Weapons can be acquired two ways through the Quartermaster:
Common and Rare Supply drops can be purchased using Keys, which are earned by playing public Multiplayer matches. You can exchange 10 Keys for Common Supply Drops or 30 Keys for Rare Supply Drops. Common Supply Drops offer a slight chance of getting a Rare, Epic, or Legendary item, while Rare Supply Drops guarantee an item or Rare, Epic, or Legendary quality.
Supply Drops can contain Prototype Weapons, Combat Rig items, Salvage, and other personalization items.
Enter the Prototype Lab to craft Prototype Weapons, unique and powerful armaments with special perks that modify functionality and provide bonuses based on your actions.
Functional modifications can increase a weapon’s base traits, while action-based modifications include bonuses such as increased ammo, more XP per kill, bursts of speed after each kill, and Payload meter bonuses for headshots. Modifications are especially effective when stacked with weapon attachments.
Each weapon has four Prototype Weapon variants, which must be unlocked through normal level progression. Once a Prototype Weapon is unlocked, it must then be crafted using Salvage. The rarer the Prototype Weapon, the more Salvage it will cost to craft.
There are four ways to obtain Salvage:
Mission Team Depot
In the Mission Team Depot, you can view and craft Prototype Weapons unlocked by completing Mission Team missions. Accept missions in Mission Teams and complete them for Mission Team XP, giving you access to these exclusive weapons.
The QR-M5TR Collection contains exclusive Weapon Prototypes that are only available from Supply Drops. Many of these weapons are locked by player level and cannot be used until reaching the required level.
