SHRAPNEL STX2 — March 20–23

SHRAPNEL STX2 — March 20–23


  • March 20–23: 10am — 6pm PST

Before you continue, please make sure you’ve read the SHRAPNEL STX FAQ which explains our Early Access structure.

As a reminder, the STX naming system is designed to help users easily recognize the scale of updates and new features. Bigger updates are indicated by a change in the whole number (for example, moving from STX1 to STX2, then to STX3). In contrast, minor updates are reflected in the decimal number changes (such as STX1.1, STX1.2, and so on).


NISHIKIGOI HGS1 Leo (Pistol) Skin

On March 20th, the Shrapnel Marketplace will debut exclusive Shrapnel Official weapon skins. A total of 20 weapon skins will be available for purchase:

  • 10 marketplace-exclusive weapon skins across 3 distinct sets, including our very first collection of legendary skins — the “NISHIKIGOI” set. These skins cannot be crafted through gameplay (more information about skin crafting is TBA).
  • 10 skins spread over 4 different sets that players have the option to either craft or buy.
  • The 20 skins will be available for purchase for a limited time only and will be replaced by new sets of skins in the near future.
  • Players will be able to equip their skins in-game starting STX2.

Additionally, you might spot an item listed as “Wildcard” for sale on the Marketplace. Stay tuned, as we’ll be unveiling more details about this intriguing item soon.

Visit on March 20th!


We will be gradually implementing changes to the structure of the Leaderboard competition. For STX2, we will be doing daily resets to the Sigma Extraction Leaderboard. More changes to follow in the future.

  • Skins are NFTs and will be tradable (skin trading functionality coming very soon)
  • Players can equip their skins in-game as early as STX2



  • Name: “Yomi”
  • Player count: Max number is 12 but sessions will be able to launch with fewer based on player counts and time.
  • Initially, the map will contain one high-fidelity section — “The beautiful corner”, while the rest of the map will be polished throughout Early Access.
  • A grey box environment allows the team to integrate changes and feedback more effectively.
  • [MAP UPDATES] Some of the areas that have been updated include the restaurant by the train station, the train station, the night club, and more.


  • Players are able to equip their weapon skins in-game!


  • Solos (i.e. no team play)


  • Sigma Wave


Type 50 SMG


  • Can be equipped on all four weapons
  • AS-1 AccuImpact (Holographic, Projectile Impact Detector) — Legendary — comes with hit markers/feedback
  • RD-9 Sure Count (Ammo Counter) — Rare — comes with ammo counter
  • [NEW] Suppressor: a muzzle attachment that significantly reduces the noise generated when firing. Can be found as loot for each of the weapons currently in the game. (Note: does not impact recoil)
Suppressor — Shotgun “CSG5 Doorbreaker”


  • Sigma Grenade


  • Medipen


  • Aniki Level 10
  • Operator Unique Trait: Hearty (more likely to see health-related perks as part of Operator progression)
  • Perks:
    Careful Application (2/2): Healing items restore more health
    Acquisition Procedure (2/3): Pick up Sigma more quickly
    Sigma Restoration (1/ 2): Heal slightly when collecting Sigma from the environment


  • No Persistent Inventory in STX2
  • Persistent Inventory means that players can keep successfully extracted loot such as gear (e.g. attachments, weapons) and build out their future loadouts (i.e. gear gained in one session can carry over to the next one).
  • For STX1, every player will start with the same loadout and then search the Sacrifice Zone for additional weapons, attachments, and ammo to help them survive, collect Sigma, and extract to climb the leaderboard.
  • In the future, players will build their own loadouts of the gear they’ve accumulated in their inventory.



  1. Skins for the AR won’t display until switching to a different weapon skin tab.
  2. Quickly equipping skins may result in AR skins from missions not always being applied to the MR84.
  3. A few players may experience being unexpectedly returned to the lobby after attempting to deploy their first match; this issue occurs sporadically/inconsistently.
  4. There’s a minor delay or pause following the action of mantling.
  5. Certain areas are excessively dark, hindering visibility.
  6. Aniki’s Sigma healing perk does not function consistently.
  7. Canceling matchmaking after changing weapon skins leads to “Cancel” becoming stuck/frozen on the deploy button.

Thank You to all who participated in past STX events!

We are just getting started and are excited to continue building in public and shaping the future of SHRAPNEL with the community. We’re committed to improving the game, and these early access events help us do just that.

So we will see you in The Zone again soon!
