Howdy Freelancers! The Anthem Featured store reset for Friday the 13th of September 2019 is now here! Let’s dive in and check out those potentially unlucky new items.

Armour Packs

The Apprentice: 61,000 Coin or 850 Shards – This armour pack will have your Javelin looking almost exactly like a Sentinel. The shoulder and arm highlights are particularly brilliant, at least I think so. This pack is definitely for those with aspirations of power.

The Blockade: 61,000 Coin or 850 Shards – This pack appears to be the Colossus version of the Sentinel armour. I love the idea of a Freelancer blending in with the Sentinels in a massive Colossus, making them feel inadequate as they gaze upon the glory of your monstrous mech suit.

Material

Rust Bubbles (painted): 12,000 Coin or 300 Shards – This material looks like what you want to put n a Javelin to give it a bit of wear and tear. My own old style Iron Man could do with a bit of this, but I know in my heart that I’ll be creating a brand new Iron Man to use this material specifically.

Decal

Crystal Fortress: 6,000 Coin or 200 Shards – This Decal looks like a chunk of crystal is exploding from a surface. I can’t help but think of the Clickers from The Last Of Us when I look at it, but it’s so much more refined than those chunks of what is effectively mould. There’s definitely a feeling of this being Anthem’s version of cordyceps though.

Graphic

Command Circuit: 36,000 Coin or 600 Shards – This is the ultimate graphic for Freelancers. When I look at it, all I can see is that early demo for the game, and it just sends me back to that feeling of excitement. This really is the best looking Graphic in the game in my eyes.

Emote

Fierce Model: 23,000 Coin or 475 Shards – I don’t know what to say about this. I’m torn between saying this emote is awesome because of the way it allows you to literally strut your stuff, and saying it’s awful because it’s such a lazy pose. Honestly I think you need to be the one choosing whether you buy this or not, don’t tell me what you did.

My Take

I’m definitely getting the Graphic this week, it’s stunning. As for the armour packs, I could take them or leave them. Realistically I think I’ll pick one of them up so I can do a bit of Fashion with a new Javelin build. Let me know what you get in the comments.
