Amazon’s Crucible brings a fresh take on hero shooter. One of the new elements you’ll experience is random events triggered during multiplayer matches. There are dynamic events in Crucible that change the way matches go. In this guide, we will explain all of the events from Amazon Game Studios’ Crucible.
All Crucible Events Explained
There are three types of events in Crucible.
- Starting Events: These events are triggered at the start of alpha hunter matches. Modes like Hearts of Hive and Harvester Command do not have starting events.
- Critical Events: These are rare events but give hunters major advantages in battle.
- Major Events: These events happen frequently on Planet Crucible and give Hunters helpful boosts.
Now that you know what starting events are, let’s take a look at how each starting event works in Crucible.
|Cluster of splitters spawns inside the containment barrier, providing desirable rewards for Hunters.
