The upside, though, means that we can expect a brand new Battle Armour Event to kick off on Tuesday 28 April at 6 pm BST.

Battle Armor Event
The exciting Battle Armour Event, announced by Respawn developer Jason McCord, will start on 28 April for a limited time.
READY UP! Armour takes centre stage in the upcoming game mode
It’ll take place on World’s Edge and will continuously evolve over 14 days with a new exciting twist every few days or so.
During the event rotation, only one type of armour will be available to players, and they will drop into the match with it already equipped.
It looks like armour will be removed from the loot pool. This won’t be the same for shield cells, batteries and the all-important loot though!
